Lightbulb Broiling and other stuff I've learned

HA i finally know what "broilling" is ha MWUAHAHA sorry i just kept seeing it over and over and finally went WHAT IS IT?? so go over to the WIKI in Australia its just GRILLING, like we have a griller that grills its a seperate part of the oven at the bottom, ha..gees

I also now know what the following mean or are either reading about it here or finding it here and using Wiki so i don't look stupid in asking what it means :

- Cool whip
- "Lights"
- wat evoo means (how obvious when u realise LOL)
- Egg Nog is not for this time of the year LOL but i wanna make it anways
- not to stick chilli's in oil and leave them there,
which leads to
- botulism
- you can freeze more than i imagined lol
- cornstarch is a good thickener (but finding it is another story)
- its better to use Brown sugar if it asks for it, cos things are more moist and chewy (thx alix for this and corstarch lol)
- you shouldn't browse this website when hungry!
- i can make my own vanilla essence with vodka :)
- different oils are good for diff things, didn't know evoo couldn't get up there in the hot hot area for deep frying
- if u don't know, someone else will on this site. there are EXPERTS here !!!
- biscuit is something different in the US than it is in Australia
- butts are something u cook/eat LOLLL (sorry, being childish )
- there is something called Kosher salt, and it has a larger grain than normal salt lol
- there is a trick to cooking with wine
- people eat a lot of burgers (i might eat a burger once every 6mths at maccas if i have a *cringes* "craving"
- there is a recipe for EVERYTHING u can think of ;) (i removed a proper wink smiley from here, u will know why at the end of the post)
- i need a bigger kichen with more cooking space and storage and a nice oven
- cut and paste is a wonderful thing

i have learnt lots more can't think of it right now and this post is getting longer and longer.

p.s u are limited to using 8 Smilies in one post, if u use 9 u will have to delete one LOLLLL

Well, Rom, you have been a very good student. You have learned many things, some of which you haven't learned the vernacular. That is, biscuit and cookie/cracker mean something different to you. You are also learning to use new ingredients and are excited about using them. For example, brown sugar.

We all have to start somewhere and you have added to your knowledge in a very short time.

None of us came out of the womb being Julia Child. Oh, that I would've loved to have been able to be. She was a gem.

Keep asking questions and soak up the answers like a sponge.

No problemo. I get the picture. Keep participating and asking questions. The only dumb question is the one you DON'T ask. Congratulations on your curiosity.
