    Sanitation

    We're roommates, so technically it's ours to share ;) Just a follow-up; yesterday he was cooking up some chicken and he actually sneezed over the pan - he didn't try not to or at least turn away his head or put his hand over his mouth. Again, in his mind I was crazy when I told him I wasn't...

    Newcomer making donuts - kneading and shortening

    Hey Guys, First off let me thank all of you guys for making this site the great resource that it is. I'm making yeast donuts for the first time, using Alton Brown's recipe from Good Eats episode 'Circle of Life.' Alton apparently is not much of a fan of hand-kneading, so he uses his dough hook...
