Actually, for someone new to cooking, it's good advice. It seems to me we had a question like that from a newbie this past year.

Yeah, next thing you know, he will suggest something really crazy ... like putting it in a bun, for example! Lol

at first i thought "well, maybe if it's a little kid asking about it", but then little kids shouldn't be boiling water by themselves.

you'd think an adult that wasn't raised with their fingers in their ears, under a rock, in a cave, on mars would understand how to boil a dog.

steve, maybe they should post a recipe for how to toast the hot dog bun, then apply mustard!

Hey, don't get all fancy schmancy on me, Tom. I'm still trying to get my head around the boiling water part.

Just reading some of the reviews for the hot dog recipe. This one made me laugh out loud...
"Never knew one could boil hot dogs and serve them warm, so I had to try this. I don't have sea salt, but I didn't want to ruin the recipe by using ordinary table salt ... so I filled my pot in the surf at the beach instead. Wow! Great result this recipe rocks! And the jellyfish cooked with the hot dogs add that exotic "kick of flavor"! Now if only my mouth would stop swelling."

Is the site really bad or is it it's membership that is so bad? It's seldom that I've seen one site badmouthed so consistently by other sites.

That's exactly what I do, Bolas. When being taught how to cook, I was shown to leave one ingredient at a time out of the recipe when I make it to see the literal difference in the outcome. Sometimes, that's very enlightening and it teaches you how radically some seasonings flavor foods.

I wouldn't say Food Network is bad overall, but there does seem to be a real "hit or miss" aspect to it. I've had some of their recipes come out great, but others (even highly rated ones) have been a total flop. Almost like they were never tested before being plopped onto the site.

My favorite recipe web site, hands down, is Elise Bauer's "Simply Recipes". Maybe I've just been lucky, but I haven't run across a stinker there yet. As the title suggests, most of the recipes are simple. More importantly, they taste great.
