Love to cook, I don't like long times and the mess.

I have developed techniques to reduce the time, mess, dishes and develope great flavors for regular cooking and my fav, one pot meals. From the stove to the oven, to pressure cooking and slow cooking. It all works for me. I golf on the weekend and love to come home to my meals almost all done.

You should see my spice rack!

Sorry, I was just pointing out that there are also non dairy waffles that are pretty good. My goof!

comment Preventing a burnt burger patty when pan frying
My own experience & Food Channel. Haven't you ever had a steak that was burnt on the outside and still raw on the inside? I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong, I'd over brown or burn it, but not caramelize, this includes chicken. The surface would be stringy, and tough. Then years ago I saw Sarah Moulton, after she said it, it was like the light bulb went off over my head. I never had a problem since. If I don't have time to take the chill off, I pop it in the micro for 10 to 30 secs. That short of time does not change the texture. BTW, I love SM. She has the greatest tips.

comment Is blanch freezing vegetables required for short term storage?
When you freeze veg or fruit juice, it tends to give you big crystals that can easily break apart in a blender adding a little warm liquid. You could use smaller zip locks, even sandwich bags (just don't toss around when frozen). It just may give you the flexiblity you are looking for. Just food for thought.
