I've learned tha pumpkin pie filling can be made without flour, how to make peanut butter bars, that mayo can be used in cakes and that American cuisine is not that different from South African.

I learned I need to watch my niece when I give her measuring instructions.
We made pizza and when I told her 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast she put in 2 1/4 tablespoons.
Wahooo talk about dough rising.
It came out ok and tasted good. I was surprised the yeast taste wasn't overpowering.

OK, I give up. I like words, and bagna sounds like bread, and cauda sounds like hot (temperature-wise). Clue me in!

I learned that I am not as strong emotionally as I always thought I was. Hard lesson to learn. I need help.

You are braver than I. There are a few things that I really like deep-fried, and I have done it, but don't like to and haven't for years!
