For Garlic Lovers
A few bloggers like to post up some of their favorite and personal invention of recipes. This is my very own original receipe. Be Warned. It is not for the faint hearted and there are some of you who may very well email me to ask is there traces of cocaine in this receipe. It is also for those of you who love garlic. So unless you dont want to have a game of tonsil tennis with someone. Have yourself a bowl of this tastiness.
