Today I’m super pumped to introduce a brand new series on the blog called “Stuff I’ve Googled: Answers To Your Kitchen Questions.”
These days I nearly always cook with my computer close at hand. My Mac has become as much a staple of my kitchen counter as my KitchenAid mixer. This drives the Mr. absolutely crazy. I know he has visions of me dousing the computer with flour, spilling buttermilk all over the keyboard, then accidentally bumping it off the counter with a tray of cookies.
I’m not going to say his fears are unfounded. The kitchen is a messy place. But the fact is, the computer has become an indispensable companion for me in the kitchen. I use it to jot down notes for recipes, follow recipes from other bloggers, or, most often, ask Google a most perplexing question.
I’m a little embarrassed to admit how often I have to turn to the computer mid-recipe to ask a question. Whether it’s a substitution for sour cream (I could’ve sworn I put it in the cart at the grocery store!), what “braise” means, or how to tell if eggs have gone bad, Google has helped me solve countless kitchen conundrums and saved more than one failing recipe.
I figured some of you were probably plagued with some of the same questions I am, so I created this new series to share what I’ve learned with you. Here I’ll be sharing some of the questions I’ve Googled and the answers that have worked best in my kitchen. We’ll be talking about ingredient substitutions, how to tell if food has gone bad, common kitchen techniques, and much more.
I’ve got a few questions already lined up, but I’d love to hear from my readers! What do you find yourself googling in the kitchen? What burning questions would you love to have answered here on the blog? Leave your thoughts in the comments and I’ll add your questions to my list!
This series will be kicking off tomorrow with one of the basics–How to use up ALL that leftover buttermilk. Come back tomorrow to get the answer!
