    What are the best herbs for a French Omelet?

    Today I made an omelette with two eggs slightly mixed with salt, 1 1/2 tsp chervil and a TBS of half and half. The resulting flavor of chervil was subtle and bordered on tasting like tarragon. Chervil is really a mild herb to almost be used alone imho but this is my first real experience using it.

    Cancer patient nutrition

    Those "AA's that the body usually lacks..." are actually essential amino acids, AA's that the body can't make on its own.

    Cancer patient nutrition

    At chiropractic college I took a nutrition class and also taught at my local community college for several years where my syllabus included at least four weeks of nutrition instruction.

    Carbon steel vs cast iron?

    Carbon steel may give the meat a better sear without over cooking in the center. CS seems to hold less heat than CI. Now think of traditional woks, they're made of CS and give the ingredients a great sear without over cooking them in the center.
