Cooking Tests

Test and decide what you like.  Don't let other people tell you what to do with your food, even if they are "experts."  They're not doing the work or eating the results.  Advice, recipes, food science -- it's all good inspiration but it's no substitute for experimenting in your own kitchen.

Boiling pasta -- I use half a pot to a pot of water, depending on how much pasta, maybe half a teaspoon of salt, and a splash of olive oil.  I don't want the pasta to taste salty, and the oil keeps it from sticking.

Frying eggs -- I love eggs fried in bacon grease.  Otherwise I will use ghee, which doesn't burn.  My parents say that frying eggs in coconut oil makes them taste like coconut, dreadful. :P

Cooking bacon -- I grew up making it on an iron griddle, which produced excellent bacon.  Now we use the microwave.
