We might not all be as good at cooking/baking as we'd like or make out to be but every half-decent cook has a potfolio of little tips and tricks that get used without even knowing it and some of them can transorm the finished product.
So, hows about posting up some of the ones we use. Not complete recipes but just the successful ways you prep/cook certain items.
Garlic cooks and tastes way better when it's been smashed. If you just peel and slice it it can get a bit lumpy and hard and flavourless.
All you need to do is take your whole cloves of garlic, skin on, and bash it with a flat spatula/big knife.
The skin is easier to get off. Then you can chop it as needed and add into the dish. Shimples.
