  1. Want to unwrap new post…need ideas? I am a dude who needs some tips about cooking, the kind of stuff that isn’t in the recipe – like how the hell do I get that outer papery stuff off the garlic before I throw a couple of cloves in my magic garlic mincing machine? How do I store vegetables to keep them freshest (for example, I seem to remember reading somewhere that I shouldn’t store mushrooms in plastic, but should use paper instead). Things like the wet fingers keeping ground chicken off my hands , that helps.

    Oh, and the chicken taco recipe.


  2. I find that mashing the garlic — with the flat of the knife — does wonders in peeling the skins off. Plus your fingers will be guaranteed vampire-free for the balance of the evening, that’s gotta be worth something.

  3. That is a great method of peeling garlic. I tend to use that method the most. On the next post there is a link to another couple of ways to do it as well. And as for getting the garlic smell off of your fingers, soap them up and rub them on some stainless steel, like your sink for a minute or two (or a fancy hunk of shiny stainless steel in the shape of a bar of soap sold for exorbitant prices at your local crate and barrel ) et voila! No stank!
