I've used half & half on occasion, but I always use milk regardless. Some of those packaged flavored mashed potatoes call for using water and that just baffles me. I know there's milk already in the mix, but using water to make mashed potatoes is completely alien to me.
Pirate does not like salt added to his food when cooking. He has never been a salt user. Makes cooking for him very difficult at times.

I use salt simply as a seasoning when I'm cooking to bring out the flavors. So that would drive me mad, not being able to salt anything. I don't use a LOT of salt, but I use it for which it was intended... to season and bring flavors out of foods.

Since it is too dangerous for me to be standing next to the stove on one leg, Pirate does all the cooking. But the one thing I INSIST he salt is the pasta. Salting it after it is cooked doesn't work. And I don't care if he has to make two separate pots of pasta.

I salt the pasta water before dropping the pasta in to cook. It really does make a difference.
