Cooking tips Home Life / Suddenly Single

Hello everyone:

Ovens and stoves are wonderful, but do not ever leave something cooking and walk away. You will forget it and it will burn. Our neighbors in Tennessee were frying onion rings and got distracted by something that took them out of the kitchen for a minute…..or two….or ten….Their whole kitchen burned down. While this may seem like a good way to clean out the kitchen and start over, it is not. It did not do wonders for their relationship with their landlord, either.

When using measuring spoons, there is a huge difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon. The spoons are marked as to which one they are, so take a moment to get your reading glasses out and check out what the side of the spoon says it is.

There is also a huge difference between sugar and salt. One tastes good in pies and the other will gag you. (Don’t ask!) There is also a difference between ketchup and tomato sauce. One is great on hamburgers and the other….not so much. Do not refill your ketchup bottle with tomato sauce – or worse,  tomato paste! Your guests and family will notice. I promise.
