06 Mar 2015 19:59

I have a confession to make. This may seem shocking, but it is the truth: I've been drinking coffee since I was five years old! My folks would start us children out with a lot of milk and a little coffee (plus sugar). Then the coffee would slowly increase and the milk would decrease.

Why Have Wooden Spoons for Cooking?

02 Mar 2015 20:25

At any one time, I have at least 4 wooden spoons in my utensil holder. Right now, I have around 7 of all shapes and sizes. When I'm cooking and need a spoon to stir, scrape, or beat, I almost invariably reach for a wooden spoon. So too do most cooks.
