A note about serious food allergies

Combining garlic and butter for awesome flavors is pretty obvious, even to your most limited culinarian. After all, what is garlic bread or shrimp scampi without that rich creamy dairy delight and pungent member of the onion family combining their powers? So it's not hard to see why mushrooms with butter and garlic are the perfect side. Carrot mash, on the other hand, is something to blow the limited culinarian's mind. You'll never mash a tater again once you try these sweetly subtle carrots, in a slightly smoother form than you're used to.

Tip: Want an easy way to mince parsley? Gather the stems in one hand, and lay the leaves on the cutting board. Cut leaves with your knife using a rocking motion, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the parsley is minced.
