Saveur Secrets.

When it comes to food, I've been spoiled all my life by my mother, who's a genius in the kitchen.

Since then, learning to cook for myself has been an ongoing process - some days, I'm thrilled with what I make; other days, I'm convinced I'll starve. But I'm still learning, and loving the adventure.

Mom has a very successful restaurant and passed both the cooking & creative gene onto my sister. At least I got the good looks. Hah!

If you come across easy peasy recipes, please post!

My brother in law did this at Thanksgiving, and it blew my mind! I kept looking for how he slipped the peeled garlic in without me seeing.

Jonathan: I still haven't tried this out - I'd love to see someone do it in person! It seems like a great party trick :)
