Just to get this one out of the way for additional member contributions: "There are no rules."

A land without rules leads to chaos, and a land in chaos leads to a state of anarchy, and in the case of culinary arts, anarchy will quite probably lead to either the trash can (along with your hard earned money and a waste of time and effort), or a trip to the hospital. Whoever coined the phrase, "Rules were meant to be broken" most likely ended up on the gallows.

I have the same rule for kebobs. Meat on different skewers from the veggies because they cook at different times.

If making a limited amount of pasta sauce, and are planning to mix the sauce and pasta together, ad the pasta to the sauce a little at a time until u get the desired sauce/pasta ratio. If you add all your sauce to too much pasta, you've got yourself a problem.

Thats a shame as most people use them wrong. Think of them as a soup base then go from there.

I have three.

When in doubt throw it out.

And dont be afraid to use a thermometer for your meat. Especially pork & chicken.

Never feel bad for not following directions. We would have no new ideas if we all did things the same way. And if you mess up, at least you know what NOT to do next time lol.

Read a new or rarely used recipe twice before preparation starts.
