Definitely Ilike to use onions and garlic a lot for my cooking. Ofcourse I don't like them raw, but it is oposite when it comes to cooking. I use lots of them mostly in my cooking.

I like onions and garlic. We cook with them alot. My boyfriend doesn't like onions so I don't get them as much as I would like too. But he loves garlic so we use that more. I new about garlic being healthy but I didn't know onions were. A good reason to eat more.

Oh yes, the more the merrier. We cook with them alot and my hubby sure likes onion on his burgers and things. I don't think people eat enough of them. They are easy to grow also and am glad I can garden and grow different varieties to make a prettier dinner with them. I hope you eat them alot.

Yes I do like both of these very much. I have always cooked with onion powder and garlic powder. I do not like cooked onions as much as I like them raw. I have only used garlic cloves a few times, because when I chop them or crush them the odor stays my hands forever. Lemon will usually remove the smell of onions, but it does not do so good with garlic. Both of these are healthy for you in so many different ways. If you can not tolerate the smell or the taste then you should take the pills they now have so you can benefit from them. I have a friend who will make an onion sandwich with mustard and put garlic on it for spice. Now that is one guy you can not stand very close to for days.

Garlic is awesome, and I cook a lot with onions as well... Sure raw right off the bulb neither are appetizing, but cooked, both are fantastic. I use garlic in just about everything, but of course I am lazy so I buy the prechopped garlic LOL. Same with onions I buy prechopped frozen onions.

i can't cook without onion and garlic. I use these things in all of my asian cuisine and i love it. Garlic and onion gives a special smell of my food and makes them taste even better. All of the asian food need garlic and onion a lot and the others spice and herbs too. That's why there is a different taste of asian cuisine compare to others cuisine too.

I think both onions & garlic are great tasting in all honesty! They are one of the two ingredients I tend to use quite often when I am cooking up a storm or a meal that is! I tend to always include garlic in each meal I end up preparing for both me & my other half. I find it brings some really great flavor to a lot of dishes I prepare. I know each time I tend to cook some sort of meat, especially hamburger that I will use garlic to add some flavor to it. It ends up tasting rather delicious when I decide to add this ingredient. I absolutely love dicing up some onions in small pieces, & adding them to a lot of my meals to. I find they taste so delicious when you fry them in some butter for a few minutes until they have turned a golden brown. I tend to use sauted onions on my home-made perogies, mixed with a little bit of low fat bacon, with some sour cream on top. It can be rather rich, but having this dish I find is to die for! I honestly tend to prefer using fresh minced garlic instead of using garlic powder any day. I find that fresh garlic tends to bring out a more distinct flavor each time I end up using it. I don't find a lot of the time I end up tasting the garlic powder when I end up sprinkling some on my food. I find even though when you use garlic & it ends up leaving an odor on your hands.. That it is quite easy to get rid of the smell with a few techniques. So the smell honestly doesn't bother me all to much.. More than anything I love the flavor it adds to my food each time I end up using it! I also love how the both of these ingredients are healthy! How good they are for you as well.. I know whenever I have the flu I can take some fresh minced garlic & use it in my food & I will end up getting a lot better quite faster.. I love how these ingredients have this effect on me. In conclusion.. For me personally I find both onions & garlic to be great tasting. I love using them in a lot of the meals I prepare for me & my other half each night. I don't think a lot of the food I prepare for me & my other half would taste just as good.. If I didn't include these ingredients each time. I find if anything these two ingredients more than anything enhance the flavor of the food I end up preparing each night! . . Thanks for allowing me to share! xx

we use them both. I like to add garlic to my food during the winter. I read an article that the garlic can help you when you have a cold. I don't really know much about the onions but I love them especially green onions.

I really like onions. When I don't have something to eat with launch or dinner I grab some tuna fish and put a lot of onions. They mix very well. The only problem is my halite. I have to brush my teeth twice to get it out. Garlic I don't like. But they do so well to our health. My mother uses them a lot while preparing the food.

For me onions and garlic are both good tasting and I like them very much. Fried thin slices of onions together is a simple and delicious dish(in Chinese:fuyongdan) which is the most favorite dish of chinese children in my place. Almost every time we Chinese fry vegetables garlic is added.

The three spices that I normally use in cooking are garlic,ginger and onions. It is present in almost all the Chinese dishes that I cook. I like the fragrance and taste of garlic and onions that permeates into the food . I also like to eat raw onions with satay sauce.

I use fresh squeezed garlic juice on my fishes food to help get rid of parasites and it also increases their appetite. Yes a vampire is a parasite and since before I have been eating garlic I have not been bothered by vampires, except mosquitoes. I do eat a lot of bananas and that is supposed to attract mosquitoes. I guess I will have to eat a lot more garlic to try and keep those pesky bloodsuckers away from me.

Hi pizzoli, I love garlic and onions. I cook with them all of the time as eating them raw would be ew! Chopping them is also kind of gross because if you get a really good wiff they make your eyes water. BUT once you sit down and enjoy your meal it is soooooo worth it!
