Does Nutmeg Make You High?

Nutmeg is great in warm milk, as a spice in pumpkin pie, and a little bit in a bechamel goes a long way. It's similar to other spices such as cinnamon and cloves, sharing some of the same terpenes, but it has a unique flavor all its own. Like any spice, it's got some strong chemicals in it.

How to Find the Freshest Loaf of Bread

09 Dec 2016 21:54

If you're like me, you probably buy the same brand of sliced bread each time you shop for groceries. You know that some of the loaves are fresher than others, so you try to pick one that is as fresh as possible. You may be able to read a 'best before date' which might be printed somewhere on the bag, but is difficult to locate and hard to read. Even if you can find a date, since there are so many loaves this can be tedious and take too long. So you use the feel test and pick the loaf that is the softest….

Do You Really Need A Garlic Press?

03 Dec 2016 16:09

So many cooking blogs recommend a garlic press. I have a hard time understanding it. Why would you want a clunky pair of pliers to pulverize garlic? It hardly has any other use. Yet, it is one of the most popular kitchen gadgets in existence. In my opinion, it is a silly product….

How many times have you went into a bar or restaurant and saw a sign that reads, "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone"? I've seen these signs many times. They don't seem like a very friendly greeting and, today, most restaurant or bar patrons tend to emphasize their right to service. Do restaurant and bar owners have a right to refuse service to anyone?…

Cotton Candy Around the World

29 Nov 2016 02:17

I used to cringe every time my son would insist on having cotton candy. Not only is it almost pure sugar, and a lot of air, he would never finish it. Cotton candy is a treat the appeal of which I never understood. Talking about not getting your money's worth! Yet, children all over the world have their own version of what we in America call cotton candy. It's still usually just sugar spun with air. But, some version of the wooly confection goes back thousands of years….
