So my little sister was cooking yesterday, and it inspired me to add a little note... Her Chicken Corn Chowder turned out fabulous, (one day it will appear here) but some moments in the kitchen were almost ...scary.
Things to know before cooking:
" c. " is an abbreviation for cup(s), whereas "cans" will be spelled out. (You want 5 cups of broth... not 5 cans...)
Big T. is Tablespoons, little t. is teaspoons.
You want to know how much a recipe yields before you make it. A 3-4 serving recipe is not going to be enough for a 4 hungry persons family.
If you have to saute some vegetables in a frying pan, then add them (not drained) to an empty soup pot, you can usually skip the first pan and just saute them in the soup pot, and go from there. Save yourself a dish.
and last but not least...
1 and 1/2 + 1 and 1/2 = 3.. not 5.
