  1. I can’t wait to try this!!! But my family don’t like using garlic too much so I wonder if I can substitute it for garlic powder?

      1. OMG my family is the same way, especially my son. If he sees something he don’t like in his food, he’ll refuse to eat it until it’s picked out of his food.
