Chef? Boy, Are We!
I enjoy cooking. Well, I enjoy eating and get some satisfaction from eating when it’s something I made. I like to take meals that I enjoy in restaurants and learn to make them at home, so I can save money and make it just the way I want it. Like many men, I often cook without paying attention to the exact amount of things I use, and I’m always tinkering with a meal trying to get it just right.
There are, however, a few personal rules I follow in the kitchen. Here are some of them.
If it requires a thermometer, it’s too much trouble.
Double the amount of cheese.
Double the amount of sauce.
Gravy can cover just about any mistake.
Smoke coming from the pan is a bad thing
Be careful when buying the store brand—sometimes it’s disastrous.
