I learned at an early age to cook from my mother. She had little time for herself as she worked all day. Yet, she was able to prepare tasty meals in short time. Being the oldest of 3 she taught me cook at an early age.

She used garlic often to enhance the flavors of steak, chicken, lamb and spaghetti. So if you like garlic, as I do, I am happy to share her recipes with you.
