I tend to cook a lot. When I do, I often discover new things for myself that I didn’t know before I began cooking a specific meal. These things are not earth shattering, but I hope that, as this list grows, your kitchen wisdom will expand along with mine.
- A teaspoon is significantly lager than I originally thought (Feb. 21, 2012)
- Cumin and New Mexico chili powder can make most meats taste as if they belong in a taco (Feb. 21, 2012)
- Contrary to the belief of some, cilantro is not grown at the gates of Hell
- The pancake can only be overwhelmed by another pancake (Feb. 22, 2012)
- The first time you try to hold the blender like the guy/gal at the smoothie shop, you will spill smoothie all over your counter (March 18, 2012)
- Damn you, Cheetos (March 31-April 5, 2012)
- After nearly 5 years of drinking soy or almond milk, real milk tastes like paradise. It’s like eating vegan chocolate cake for five years, then eating a piece of chocolate explosion … one that literally explodes chocolate in your mouth … with every bite. It also happens that this milk is fresh from Oberweis. Thank you, Oberweis.
