comment Frying Eggs—Sticking to the Pan
Careful with Pam and other canned sprays on high temperature surfaces such as pans. They often contain soy lecithin and other chemicals that turn gummy when cooked. After many uses this will create a permanent sticky patina on the surface of a frying pan.

Spiced alcoholic cider is quite good, although usually simpler in flavor than that made with raw cider.

comment How to do hot spiced apple cider without apple cider?
I grew up with an apple orchard and moved away in late childhood, and am picky about my cider. I have had excellent pasteurized cider and terrible unpasteurized cider, although I suspect that the excellent pasteurized cider would have been even better unpasteurized.

comment pita bread crust too hard
I have found that cooking them extremely hot is best to get them to puff properly, even if they only take two minutes to cook.
