I am in no way a cook, let alone a gourmet cook.
But there are several items in which I feel strongly:
1.) Don’t break spaghetti noodles in half prior to boiling them. It makes me uncomfortable. I like long noodles. Not short ones. I’m a proponent of noodle twirling with spoons and those short noodles fling spaghetti sauce everywhere. And who needs another mess to clean?
2.) Easy on the salt. Of course, a little salt should be added. But BOO to tons of added salt. (Note: we use unsalted butter. And I sort of love it.)
3.) Eggs should be used as often as possible. (Does this even need an explanation?)
4.) Mashed potatoes should have at least an entire STICK of butter in them. At least. (And yes, salt.)
That’s all for now from this front.
