About my blog

What is this blog about?? Food porn! It’s true that you eat with your eyes first Β and I’m a freak about plating so I want to tantalize your taste buds through visual images of my kitchen kreations. Once I’ve got your mouth watering, grab the recipe and get cooking! The recipes for each dish are in a format that’s easy to follow even if you’re a beginner. Not all but most have my beloved garlic in them. I’m also a garlic purist…no junk in the jar. I chop my own which leaves that glorious smell on my hands…hence the name ‘GarlicHands’. BTW the pictures are the finished product so there’s no camera trickery, no photo shopping or par cooking for the sake of the pic which means what you see is what you’ll get if you follow the recipe. Enjoy!
