lol Sizzlinin, I do the knife trick too.

I do the bare feet and I nibble too. I love that cookie dough too! Only 1 in every 30,000 eggs is contaminated with salmonella. With that cookie dough tasting so great, I figure the odds are in my favor.

From what dh tells me, I'm a kitchen destroyer and I use every dish in the house. In my defense, at least my food tastes good. He can use just a couple dishes but it doesn't taste nearly as good as mine. He doesn't even do the dishes.

Something my husband does, when he makes toast, he'll grab the butter from the fridge and smears the stick over the bread. Too many dishes to use a knife, I guess.

I have all the above and then more, lol! One that I don't think has been mentioned is one from my days in pro kitchens; if I happen to drop a piece of something on the floor, onion skin or something, sometimes it just stays there, 'cause the prep guy was always around to sweep up! Bad, bad habit!

Re the salmonella and tasting - if salmonella were more prevalent, we'd have a whole slew of chefs in the hospital with it, from all the tasting that gets done at -all- stages of prep!

yep, all of the above.
Mamalady... I leave the things I drop on the floor there too. I know for sure that I'll drop something else before the meal is done...why bend over twice? I'm a very messy cook... I put things away as I'm done using them but...if I spill or drop something it just stays until I'm done with everything else.

I never wear shoes, I eat cookie dough and taste what ever I'm cooking a million times before it's done...

also.. I nibble after the meal is over. I swear I'd be 100 pound smaller if I never did dishes again. I just keep eating. BAD!

I keep getting verbally abused by the laundry department for getting stains on all my shirts while cooking. S.O. (laundry department) bought me a Patriots football apron but I usually forget to wear it.

I guess I think about this in the long haul.......I will probably outlive my workaholic DH and I don't want to have a stuck drain to deal with by myself, so I am very careful not to send anything down the drain.

And I get the impression that some of you think it is inappropriate to lick beaters, spoons, bowls, whisks, and fingers.... I can't imagine.....that is the only thing my cooking challenged mother taught me.. that I do!! Am a confirmed beater licker,as well as a cookie dough eater, think the odds are on my side with the germs.

and please please please please where shoes in the kitchen when handleing knives, please

Like many of you, I'll frequently cook without shoes. I'm embarrassed to admit this, but in the summer I'll also cook without a shirt. Wouldn't you think, at the very least, the splatters wouldn't surprise me anymore?

Licking the knives . You'd think I'd learn.

I have the wonderful habit of grabing the pans I have just taken out of the oven barehanded, I have the blisters to prove it. I think it is because I am in a hurry.

Ahhh - you guys are funny! :LOL:
Another bare-foot cook here. And I've dropped a knife a time or 2. You oughta see me jump back when I drop something! You'd be shocked & awed! I haven't been hit...yet! If it ever happens, I will whine to all of you & expect you to sympathize!

I'm all about the food!
