    What is substitute for almond milk

  5. You can use any type of milk that please you or just water which will make it less creamy.

  6. Sorry Linda, garlic is optional. use one or two cloves.

  7. Picky, Picky, have you critics never created a recipe before.?. I improvise almost
    every recipe that I work with and I cook at least twice a day using any fresh
    vegetables that I have available, and I use garlic in most recipes, except for cookies and cakes…
    Thank -you so much Diana for the recipes and suggestions. I look forward to
    trying them and seeing new submissions… V A L

  8. Valerie, yes I almost always make a recipe a number of times and each time it is different but I do see that it is good for me to make sure it is easy to follow with good directions. I need a proofreader.
