I'm brand new to forums and hope to learn a lot about aspects of cooking from all of you. In turn, I hope to share what information I know about cooking with everyone. Since I saw postings of birthday wishes, I would also like to wish Happy Birthday to fellow Libras and Scorpios!
Probably, unlike most of you, I am not an avid cook. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy cooking, but I only cook when I have to do so. I just detest the time-consuming prep work that is involved, such as washing vegetables and cleaning the stove afterwards!
I am truly excited and would like to start this post with a few questions.
1. Where can I find tomato paste tubes in grocery stores? I can only find them online. Are the brands all good or is one better than the other? I was about to order Amore tomato tubes but decided I should consult before ordering a whole box of them.
2. I shouldn't cook tomatoes in copper pots but is it okay to cook them in stainless steel pots? I hate enameled pots b/c they chip so easily as I am a careless and "rough" cook.
3. Has anyone used Maas metal creams or polish? Does it truly maintain the metal shine as it claims?
That's all I got to start. Thanks in advance.
