Mom and I would spend quiet mornings together doing housework and errands in town.
Even when I started school it was half day so I still got another year of time alone with mom, forever tying me to her apron strings.

At my house I have many names, Mom, Aunt, Sister, Wife, PITA to name a few.My husband tells my friends I am the “Gadget Whore”.To some extent that is true.I love my kitchen gadgets and I do have and
play favorites.The Garlic Press is
one of them.
I use a lot of fresh garlic at my house (hence the name
Garlic Goddess).That involves a lot
of peeling, chopping, slicing, smashing and scraping of garlic, a tiny
object with a large sharp knife.
My way around this is a garlic press.I bought my first press in a store bargain
bin for very little money many moons ago (about 28 years).After that I
managed to find one or two at garage sales and even one or two others more
recently at high end kitchen stores.None of those measured up.They
are hard to press, hard to clean and a few even broke within a couple of uses.
This is what my first press looked like.
I finally searched the internet a couple years
ago and found this nice Zyliss one and ordered one online.It was very similar to my original garlic
press (which I still have).It is easy
to use, cleans well and hasn’t broken in 1,000 of times of use.
This is what the second one looks like
No more peeling, chopping or smashing.This thing does it all but the slices (which
on occasion sliced garlic is a must).You just drop a clove into the space provided and press.It comes out the other end finely chopped,
juice and all.Leaving the peel behind
for discarding.No more garlic sticking
to your fingers or the smell of garlic on your hand.Nice.
