Using Garlic Powder Instead of Cloves

I have a recipe that calls for a clove of garlic. Well, today I’m out of fresh garlic and don’t wanna go to the store, so I did some research and found that I can use 1/8 tsp. of garlic powder instead. This conversion is popular on the web and confirmed in the back of my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, which by the way, is the only cookbook I hope I never lose. My 1981 edition is out of print, but here’s a link to get the new version which is likely just as good or better.

Remember, make your family happy by simply cookin’ up some great food!
