I love my... garlic press

Whenever I watch my favorite foodie, Rachael Ray, I notice that she always whacks the garlic with a knife instead of using a garlic press. Now, I'm not very graceful in the kitchen, so using that procedure and not injuring myself can be challenging. That's why I was so excited when I received my garlic press last Christmas. Now instead of buying the minced garlic in a jar, which by the way is awful, I can have freshly pressed garlic whenever I want. It's been especially helpful with bruscetta, garlic bread, and pretty much any stir fry dish that could use some spice.

Me too! And I recently discovered that I don't need to crack or peel the outer skin, I just pop the whole clove in there and press. No more garlicy fingers for days... yesss!
