Cooking is a very fun way to pass the time, and it’s also a necessity in life. Nobody goes throughout their entire life without learning how to cook, that is unless they’re either incredibly wealthy or just eat strictly fast food. In
any case knowing how to cook is going to bring you places you never thought you would be, like the toilet after trying to make your own sushi for a second time. Staying safe while you cook is not only crucial, but it could actually safe you from a medical episode in your life. The last thing you need to be dealing with is food poisoning because you don’t know how to wash your hands, so keep all of the tips we’re going to mention in mind. Firstly, you always need to keep your hands clean. The hands that you’re preparing the food with will not only touch the ingredients, but they’ll also touch your food when you’re eating it. If you just went to the washroom and it was a number two, you definitely need to wash you hands (no questions asked). As a matter of fact, wash your hands before cooking no matter what! You could also get sick from an abundance of germs that live on the surface of your kitchen counter tops (as well as floors and sinks), which is another problem to think about.
Now that you understand why keeping clean is important we can talk about being safe with knifes. Obviously no running and obviously no “speed chopping”, especially if you can’t speed chop in the first place. Cooking isn’t a competition, it isn’t about speed and it definitely isn’t about who’s going to out cook the other person (unless you’re on a game show related to food). When you’ve used an oven or even a burner in the kitchen be sure that you’re turning them off when you’re done. Leaving on an oven or a burner for extended periods of time is usually how house fire happen, and in some cases the fires can be so severe that the house is unrepairable. If turning off your ovens is going to safe you the trouble of dealing with a house fire than you might want to keep that in mind, seriously. Cooking can be dangerous, there’s tons of gas and heat being put out there at one time; if you aren’t careful bad things could happen.
Sweet potato fries recipes that aren’t going to leave a bad taste in your mouth (pun most definitely intended) can be a tough thing to go about finding, but it’s possible for any one of us. I’m sure there is a chef on this planet that could make human waste taste like cotton candy, although if there was I’m not exactly sure as to whether I would want to meet them or not! Sweet potatoes have always been looked at as the weird cousin of regular potatoes, but it’s just a matter of not looking like the same potato you’re used to eating. The regular potato is much different from the sweet potato, the sweet potato is much sweeter and brighter in colour when compare to the regular kind. This isn’t necessarily a fight over which potato is the best type though, because if it was I’m sure we would be here all night throwing about arguments related to potatoes. The recipes that you used behind your sweet potatoes are going to mean a lot too, you need to make sure that you’re garnishing them and seasoning them properly before they’re served. Now the people who are eating them might not really be professional critics, but it wouldn’t help to make sure that to dish was in fact delicious.
If you don’t have any recipe ideas in mind you don’t need to worry, it’s 2015 and the internet essentially has you covered. You can look up things on Pinterest, which a kind of social networking site where users pin things they fancy on their “boards”. Find a recipe board related to sweet potato fries and start reading away, chances are you’ll find the perfect recipe within the first few scrolls. Sweet potato fries recipes can also be found through the use of Google, it’s the largest search engine we currently make use of and you should always check with it before anything else. If it’s out there on the internet (and people want it to be seen) Google will have it in their systems for you. Personally I just prefer eating my sweet potato fries as simple as I can. I deep fry them in peanut oil to make sure that they’re nice and crunchy, and once that’s done I go on to put a little salt and pepper on there. Sometimes all you need is the little things in order to make a big difference.
If you’re constantly in the kitchen making things than you already know how awesome it feels when a dish comes together, but you also know what it feels like to make something less than desirable Measuring the ingredients that go into your recipe is a very important thing to do, especially if its a recipe that requires for very specific measurements. If a recipe calls for a cup of flour and you just throw in a few tablespoons it isn’t going to be enough, and if you put way too much in the problem is just going to get worse. Some recipes call upon the chef to make the right measurements, because if they don’t the entire things going to be ruined. Making bread and pizza dough would apply to something like this, you need the perfect amount of yeast introduced into the mix if you want the right kind of bread to pop out. First things first, you should go out and buy yourself a measuring kit. The kitchen is a place of beauty when people allow it to shine, but you can’t make the most out of it without the right tools. It would be like a lumberjack showing up to the yard without an axe, it just doesn’t work out in the end.
You should at least have a tablespoon (tbsp.), a teaspoon (tsp.) and a cup (1 cup) when it comes to measurement devices, seeing as those are the most common numbers used in recipes. Sometimes people have been cooking for such a long time that they don’t even need the measurement help, but you’re more than likely far away from that. I always prefer to make use of the very specific measuring kits, the ones that have 1/2 tablespoons and such included in them. Your recipes will never have the unique touch they need if you aren’t using the right measurement equipment, and I know this from firsthand experience! I was making dinner for my girlfriend (and now current wife) on the third date that we ever had, I was just throwing flour and eggs into the mix hoping that something great would come out. Needless to say measurement cups probably would have helped a lot, so consider it a lesson learned! Food deserves to be prepared the way it was supposed to be prepared, its the least we could do when it comes to enjoying a meal.
Think about what you’re going to make for dinner can be easy some days, but when you’re feeling a little quirky you have to have a “go to” recipe. These are recipes that you can make use of whenever you’re feeling down, or even just feel like celebrating some sort of occasion. Everybody has their very own kind of go to recipe, so it’s not going to be the exact same when you go through a group of people. Even if somebody doesn’t enjoy your favourite recipe you should still hold it in high regard, it’s all about your tastes and your tastes alone. Obviously that wouldn’t be the case if you were cooking for a family of four, but let’s just focus on being alone for now (shall we?). The recommended recipes that you’ll be reading about today are going to be simple in a sense, but we’re not going to be talking about ingredients to a tee. We’ll go into a little bit of detail, but I want to leave the good stuff for the rest of my posts; you understand don’t you? The first recipe you should take into consideration happens to be a personal favourite of mine, and that recipe recommendation would be macaroni and cheese. It’s literally one of the most common foods you’ll ever see in the western hemisphere, and that rule probably applies to the entire world (to a certain extent of course, I don’t think the undiscovered tribes of New Guinea are eating plates of macaroni and cheese right now).
A great macaroni and cheese consists of great cheese and even greater macaroni, but I prefer using whole wheat pasta for my recipe. The thing about recipes is that you can switch them up however you’d like, so throw some bacon in there the next time you’re cooking up a dish. Fish and chips would be another fan favourite, and that’s essentially going to be based off of your fish choice (as well as batter choice). Don’t batter the fish too much and you’ll be fine, but if you cheap out on the initially fish selection it isn’t going to matter much. Good fish is going to make great fish and chips every single time, no matter how bad you manage to funk up the recipe. There are many other recipe recommendations I could give to you, but I’ll save those for later on in this blogs life.
Usually, when I get something in my email offering me something for free, I know it’s a scam. Likewise, it ends up in my spam box, a win-win situation. But this time, I got an email from Fiverr, a site where users sell services for $5. You can get anything on Fiverr: from SEO to videos for your website. I decided that I’d try out a free gig on them, and the gig that I decided to try was a Fiverr SEO gig. I decided that it’d be best to test the links on a new site, since Fiverr links are awful (or at least are thought to be) compared to PBN links. Even a Tumblr PBN can generate more link juice than Fiverr links. I was a bit cautious on which gig I was going to purchase, but ended up purchasing one recommend on DripApps, an SEO blog. They recommended a gig that offered 4000 links for only $5! How can the seller create so many links on such a low budget? As we stated earlier, these are not private blog network (PBN) links, and Fiverr SEO can only help your website to an extent. So, when DripApps recommended me some Fiverr gigs, I was excited. I went ahead and placed my order, and got these 4000 links, as promised. But there was only one problem. These were awful links. As we discussed earlier in the post, there can only be so much quality you can get from $5 worth of SEO, and that was the problem. These links would work great on a parasite for SEO, such as YouTube and Yelp, but not for a real money site.
