    Are you an autocondimentor? This is somebody that puts salt and pepper on their food without checking first that it requires salt or pepper!? I used to be but now It's quite rare that I put salt on my food. It depends on what it is though :) I mostly do put pepper on my food but not if it...

    In coffee is good :) Use it in your mashed potatoes in place of milk. You will be surprised at the improvement it makes :)

    YES! You understand. Must.... Have.... coffee.... lol I was talking about a cup of espresso. Sorry, I should have made that clear :) Espresso being much stronger than perculated then I would say 5 - 6 cups of "normal" coffee would be ok a day. You can read about the heath benifits that a...

    Actually coffee is good for you. It does many good things for you including helping to keep your heart in shape and it's also one of the most powerful detoxitants for your body there is. Recommended is 3 - 4 cups a day. As with anything, if you drink coffee to excess it's going to be bad for...

    Hi, glad you enjoy cooking so much. You know what? You are more than half way there if you love the thing that you do. Passion, enthusiasm and a will to do a thing are often worth more than the knowledge! Just have a bit of confidence. Have fun with it. Try stuff out. If it doesn't work out then...

    I would leave it out altogether. It certainly isn't in the origonal hungarian recipe. The origonal one that's been made for thousands of years got by without adding canned store products to it and yours will too and be better off for it ( in my humble opinion :) ) I find it very odd when...
