It's crunch time for me right now. Exams coming up. Lots of catching up to do. I'll be posting a lot less in the next week or so. Don't miss me too much! That's only a female representation of me by the way.

Kitchen Myths

I found this website recently and it blew my mind. He has different sources for each of his arguments, so sounds legit. Did you know all of these things are false? These are the ones that I believed until now:

  • Searing meat seals in the juices
  • A box of baking soda in the fridge or freezer absorbs odors
  • When baking muffins, you should put water in any empty cups in the muffin tin
  • Sushi means raw fish
  • You cannot deep-fry in olive oil
  • You cannot do serious cooking in a microwave
  • Foods such as chicken salad made with mayonnaise are prone to quick spoilage
Did anyone learn something new? Do you know any cooking myths you know are false?
