I've discovered I love making Chicken Karaage. It's boneless fried chicken in corn/potato starch but ready in just about an hour and has simple, straightforward steps. What kind of variations could I try out? Different flavors/marinades? Different coatings or flavored coatings? Different chunks of meat? Novel dips that pair well? Other ways to fancy it up?

I l.o.v.e roasted garlic. A nice crusty bread, good cheese, & a heaping helping of roasted garlic makes me so happy. It does not, however, make my husband happy with me, or rather, my smell. Is there any trick to mitigating the garlic I apparently emit from my pores, mouth, & soul for a few days or is he stuck with us? No, he can't join in the fun because it tears up his stomach.
Everyone's hands smell like onions/garlic after chopping them, unless you use gloves. I am no exception. My hands continue to smell like onions for days afterwards, despite multiple applications of soap, water, rubbing my fingers on stainless steel, using anti-bacterial odour-reducing soap, etc. I need something more effective. There's a catch or two. [more inside]
I planted garlic in pots on my windowsill 4-5 months ago. All was going well until a few weeks ago when the greens stopped appearing. Having never grown garlic before, I didn't worry too much, thinking this was a part of the process and that maybe bulbs were forming beneath the dirt. Today, I went to water the garlic and it fell right over... basically showing me a minuscule garlic bulb with no root system. I am completely confused. Please help me figure out what went wrong so I do this right the next time! [more inside]
My roommate's 25 lb. mutt ate little tuna with a sprinkling of garlic powder (about 1/10th(?) teaspoon worth). Since garlic is extremely toxic to dogs, should I be worried?
The CSA garlic has been piling up. What sorts of things can I do with quantities of garlic? I think we currently have 10-12 heads of garlic. Bonus points if whatever it is will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks, or in the freezer for a couple of months. (I found this from previously but maybe there's more!)
I'm starting a garlic treatment for my stomach ulcer, and have some concerns about whether this will work. My doctor has prescribed antibiotics, but my naturopath has recommended raw garlic (3-4 times daily) and I want to try that approach first, along with other supporting herbs. However I'm worried about the ramifications if this fails, because stomach ulcers are pretty serious from what I hear. Am I taking a big risk of perforation, cancer, internal bleeding etc. by not taking the medication? And is it possible that the garlic could eradicate H. pylori bacteria? [more inside]
I have a huge, life-determining standardized test tomorrow. A bit of ear plug got stuck inside my ear this morning when half of it ripped out as I tried to remove my earplug. Now, my ear has started hurting a little, and I'm terrified! I'm highly prone to ear infections, and am fearful of waking up with one tomorrow. It would be a huge distraction during this 3 hour test that has required months of preparation! [more inside]
I want to buy hummus without garlic but I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I know I could make it, but I'd like to be able to buy it. I'm beginning to think it's even harder to find than oatmeal cookies without raisins or carrot cake without cream cheese frosting. Does anybody know if any company makes garlic-free hummus?

The aroma and flavor that garlic and onion in any form yield stay in my system way longer than reasonable. I need to be able to eat these two foods to help my immune system and my sinuses function better, but I can't stand the aftermath anymore (and now that I have a boyfriend again, I'm extra sensitive to yucky breath and stuff). What can I eat or drink to counteract these side effects so I can keep onions and garlic in my diet? [more inside]

My wife has temporarily cut out alliums from her diet. No garlic, onion, leek, scallion, shallots, etc. Also eggs. And broccoli, but that's not quite such a big deal. She isn't the sort to have lots of sandwiches and prefers hot meals. How the heck do I cook for her?

I'd like to find a source in NE Illinois or even Chicago for heirloom seeds and garlic for my Aunt, bricks and mortar if possible. I couldn't seem to find anything promising online, and there are a lot of online places, but I'm in Canada so I have no experience with the U.S. based companies. [more inside]

Quick! I need some advice. My purple-stripe garlic has the normal white cloves under the, uh, papery-skin, but when I cut into the cloves near the place where they sprout, the inside is fluorescent green, in a halftone-like pattern. I've never seen before in purple-striped garlic (or any other garlic) -- although, this is only my second try with purple-striped garlic. Has the garlic gone bad? Or is it just a lot of sprouts?

I am on an eternal quest to make the perfect tomato pasta sauce. Every recipie I've read says to start with a pan and some olive oil and then fry up onions and garlic. I then dump in my tomatoes--I ususally use whole canned tomatoes, chop them up a bit and let them simmer a while, then season, etc. The garlic is what I'm asking about, because I notice if I do this, the garlic will cook for quite a long time and the resultant sauce ain't so garlicky, even if I've added several cloves--it seems I've cooked away much of the flavor. I've tried adding the garlic later on, but that's not quite right either. How do you ensure your pasta sauce is full of garlic goodness?

What's a good side dish to go with the traditional "Chicken & 40 Cloves Of Garlic" recipe? (A recipe for the sidedish would be greatly appeciated too.)
It's the 21st century and I'm tired of analog garlic preparation! I love to add fresh -- not pre-bottled -- garlic to almost everything. However, I hate having to deal with a crappy garlic press, which usually leaves my hands covered in garlic juice and big strings of pulp. Can anyone recommend some kind of fancy-pants machine to peel and press cloves for me?
