~ Important info about using raw garlic ~
Make sure that when using garlic in a dish, that it is properly cooked. Its rare, but it has been found that raw garlic can potentially harbor bacteria that could cause food poisoning. The reasoning behind the long cook time, Use of lime/lemon (as an acid), and refrigeration is to stave off harmful bacteria. 

Ingredients - Garlic Infused Olive Oil / Roasted Garlic

2 to 3 - Cups - Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
4 to 5 - Whole Heads - Garlic Cloves
Juice from one Lemon/Lime (Either works fine)

Ingredients - Super Simple Garlic Bread
Garlic Infused Olive Oil, or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Garlic Powder (If not using Infused Olive OIl)

Kimono Girl Killer!

As part of my re-upload plan to restore my YouTube back to what it once was (Sorta). I have re-uploaded on of my classic EricPreslik videos "Kimono Girl Killer!". I bring home a mysterious ceramic doll, that might be more then meets the eye. Eric also gets a little crazy in this one (Is it crazy to talk about myself in the third person?) Regardless of my insanity, I hope you enjoy this video.

I hope you're having an amazing day!
