comment What is a good brand for teflon pans?
I use All-Clad professionally in the kitchen. As long as the pan is hot before I add the food, I use the straight stainless steel.

comment Crisping Chicken Without Skin
Have you thought about oven fried chicken? The skin is removed and the meat is soaked in buttermilk with garlic and herbs for a couple of hours. Then it is removed and set to dry uncovered on a rack on a sheet in the fridge. Then it's floured, dunked in egg mixture and covered in seasoned breadcrumbs tossed with olive oil before being baked on a rack in the oven. No skin, uses good olive oil for fat, tastes great, even better than normal fired chicken IMO, and is super crispy.

comment What can I do with batter that has lumpy sugar in it?
Yeah, your cake will be fine. The sugar will dissolve with the cooking heat. I would say pass the sugar by itself through a sieve.

comment How to Store Fresh Herbs
Make sure that the herbs are clean of dirt. Different herbs live differently. Show you can put in vases like flowers, rosemary and thyme don't need to be tightly covered and tarragon likes to be wrapped in a damp paper towel.

comment How can I melt cheese for dipping?
@TFD I don't think that is the difference between fondue and Mornay. Fondue is made with wine and Morney is made with milk. I'm sure that with the same amount of either wine or milk that amount cheese that can be added to a smooth consistency before it breaks is pretty close the same.

Why the downvote? This is called Béchamel sauce or in English, white sauce, which is a considered one of the 'mother sauces' in French and Italian cooking.
