Testing Fox Run’s Garlic Keeper With My Just Beet It Recipe


Could you even imagine a life without garlic? I absolutely can’t! I pretty much add minced and sautéed garlic to everything that isn’t a dessert. I always crave that intense blast of pungent flavor- there’s never a bad time for it.

Since I live in LA, my kitchen gets sunny and toasty during the day, which makes keeping garlic the old fashioned way (hanging from a ceiling, or just in a ceramic bowl on the counter) not so ideal. I’ve been keeping garlic in the fridge, and I get so bummed out when it begins to sprout, due to moisture. I was asked to test-drive Fox Run’s Garlic Keeper, and I’m so glad I did. I’m always excited to prevent any chance to avoid food spoilage and save a little cash.

I’ve owned my Fox Run’s Garlic Keeper since October, and I’ve been using it consistently on my counter this whole time. The recommended length of time to keep garlic in there is three weeks, but I’ve kept garlic in there a little longer, and the bulbs are just as flavorful with a firm texture.

I love my white ceramic Garlic Keeper, but they do offer a Terra Cotta color option as well, if you like yours to pop out more. Size-wise, it’s perfect for my kitchen. It’s only 5.5″ in height and takes up very little space.

So let’s put this garlic to the test! One of my favorite side dish recipes that utilizes garlic and an often wasted/forgotten about ingredient, beet stalks.

Just Beet It


Clean, dry and cut stalks of 3 beets.
2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
1 minced garlic clove
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium-sized skillet, over medium high heat sauté minced garlic with olive oil until browned.
Add beet stems and sauté for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat, add lemon zest and a spritz of lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
Want to make a meal out of it? Pair with over medium eggs and toast!

Actress and Founder of Girls on Food: I was born and raised in the suburbs of Sacramento, California. I grew up a typical “McDonald’s kid”. I was very picky about what I ate and refused to try new foods. No fun, I know. My Mom started taking me on trips to Europe when I was a teenager and that’s when my palate for finer foods began to develop. Some of my most memorable favorite meals include Veal Bolognese in Rome, Gyros in Athens, Paella in Lisbon and Duck L’Orange in Paris. While this helped me grow out of a fast food phase, I still eat out quite a bit. I know I should be at home cooking, but I love dining out. I started working in restaurants in various front of the house positions at age 15. Since my start, I’ve worked in every casual restaurant setting you can think of: a teriyaki stand, brewery, sushi nightclub, trendy Mexican, family-style Italian, American diner, pizza parlor and even a BLT themed food truck. I can't help but notice that many of the LA food bloggers don't have any sort of background working in a restaurant. A lot of my perspective on food and dining out comes from my years of experience in the biz. Since starting this blog, I have shot appearances on a couple of cooking competition shows as a taster (including MasterChef Junior and another upcoming show). We have also started producing a Youtube Channel. IMDb page here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2023647/ For this site I contribute content from all over Los Angeles (and the world) to showcase my favorite fine-dining spots, steakhouses, exclusive supper clubs, Hollywood nightlife and our very own #GOFx events, which I plan and coordinate.
