Make your own supply of chopped/minced garlic to save time! Cooking with garlic is fun, but peeling and mincing cloves each time you need it can be time consuming. Take a few extra minutes to peel all of the cloves from a head or two of garlic. Mince or chop the clove (don't make the pieces too small) and store it in an airtight container with olive oil in the refrigerator. You have minced garlic when you need it. It can lose flavor faster than whole cloves, but the time savings is worth it.

I LOVE adding garlic to many of my meals..not to mention it's super good for you! But chopping it up is so tedious! So, while watching Rachael Ray one day, I noticed she uses a hand-held flat cheese grater to "chop" up her garlic. It is SO easy & quick. I cook w/garlic all the time now. Try it!
