The More Garlic Cookbook

If there's one thing we have in common, the need to find ways to put more garlic in our meals must be close to a universal contingency. In most recipes there's just not ever enough. So how about doing a cookbook of our own? This provides both a means of increasing our revenue and helps us in the battle of copyright infringements. So, over the winter season, while we all have a little more time, we will be compiling enough recipes to do our first "Member Cookbook." We will offer to print and credit each contributing original recipe with your name and stinky title. The more, the better ... so take some time to send us along something that'll fire our innards and fill us with the dragon breath of life. All submissions can be sent in care of The Garlic Press (address in each issue), so let's get cookin'!

Here is the first entry we have received for the More Garlic Cookbook. May you "wear" it in good health!
