Sorry to get this up so late. It's been a crazy week for both Jillian and myself, and the spotlight and QOTW have slipped both our minds.
This week we're going to be talking kitchen advice. Not advice that you give people (that you've figured out the hard way), but advice that you've been given. Who is your kitchen mentor? Is it Mom? Grandma? Mother-in-law? Sister? Someone else? What's the best kitchen advice you've ever received?
My mom always taught me to read a recipe all the way through before I started making it.That way I'm familiar with the flow of it, I know when something is going to be divided, and if it's going to require lots of coordination (like this recipe), I'll be ready. And if needs be, I can measure all my ingredients into bowls (like on cooking shows) before I get started, so that I can dump as I go.
She also taught me that no matter how much cinnamon the recipe calls for, it's never enough!
So, dish! What's that best cooking/kitchen advice you've ever received?
