As the Isley Bros. sing it during this week's episode, "All you've got to do is shake it up, baby!" No more whacking individual cloves with the flat of a knife when you need a whole lot of garlic, which is what I do usually—Okay, always. Here's how Martha does it.

Got some clever kitchen tricks you'd like to share? Do tell. Right down there.
