Have you ever 'discovered' a little thing that makes a big difference?
For about the past month, I've been using oil on my face after cleansing. I just put a few drops on my fingertips, spread it around and blot off any excess. I must say, that now I am begining to feel that my skin in quite moist, well nourished and healthier looking.

And other...love the idea of smashing a clove of garlic, instead of peeling it. Someone suggested this to me years ago and I've used it ever since.

WD-40 is best.Just don't smoke afterwards.
Smashing a clove or putting it through a press releases more flovour than chopping.

BUT - are you saying that you don't even PEEL it before you smash/crush/press it?

Nope. Just take the side of a big knife, smash the garlic and then the peel comes off so easily. The clove inside is ready to use, unless you prefer to mince it finer.

OK - so all agree that we DO get rid of the peel somehow. Thanks for that!

Well mario, since wearing my glasses when I do it helps - I'm gonna guess that goggles would help even more!

Onions are hit and miss with me. Can't figure out why unless it has to do with the type of onion. Using an enclosed chopper might help. I've tried them but since I'm not overly tall, I can't seem to get the right pressure to push down on the handle.
Any suggestions out there for not crying over onions?

If you don't want to grease up like growler, I've read that peeling (or whatever) the onion under water helps. But, it would be pretty hard to dice an onion under running water! LOL Little Discoveries 3955995682

When I have to mix a salad for up to four people, I put the greens in a large ziploc bag, add the dressing and shake, shake, shake. Afterwards, the bag can be discarded or washed and reused. This works especially well for cream type salad dressings, as in a Caesar.
