Garlic has long been a staple in the diets of many people around the world.
There are always people attempting to find new ways to incorporate garlic
into their diet.  Because of this, there are now entire cookbooks devoted to
cooking with garlic.

Just go to your local bookstore and look in the cooking section.  No doubt,
you will find more than one garlic themed cookbook.  You may even find one
that comes packaged with a garlic press, a tool used specifically when
cooking with garlic.

Let's take a look at some of the appetizers you may find when searching for
garlic themed recipes:

Baked Garlic
Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Garlic Spring Rolls

These appetizers are more fun when everyone partakes.

While the advent of garlic appetizers may seem like a given, there are other
applications that are not so obvious.  There are a number of recipes that
feature garlic as a dessert.  Surprisingly, garlic ice cream is even
becoming well known on some dessert carts.

We have all probably had our share of garlic bread with some Italian dishes.
Now, garlic can be found as the prominent feature in main courses.  Why not
dish up some garlic pizza, or some garlic lover's steak.  Don't forget the
garlic mashed potatoes on the side.
