That gem of advice is particularly close to my heart, for reasons I’ll explain another day.
Overcooked bacon smells nasty, devolps a gummy texture, and looks pretty gross, too. Over simmered soup also smells horrible, gag inducing. It also gums up.
Cut garlic early so that you wash your hands multiple times. The odor fades more. Same for onions.
If you think the bowl or pot you’re using is “just big enough”, grab the larger one. Unless you like transfering food and washing more dishes/pots.
Always curl your fingers under when chopping. Knuckle skin < finger tips.
While I’m not a huge dairy fan I do cook with milk. Less than whole fat never cooks as well.
Christmas arrives and passes far too quickly.
