Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
Now I know that I have beaten up pretty badly on dried herbs, pre-ground spices, packaged foods and the like… but I like garlic powder. It is one of those weird substances that has a flavor all its own - sort of like garlic but not really. I think it's because my mother cooked with it and it evokes wonderful memories. It is perfect in Oven Fried Chicken and other breaded dishes. I also love making Chicken Salad and French Fries with garlic powder.
