You are not, however, authorized to receive the definition of: dash, smidgen, or pinch. Nor the definiton of: "season to taste," and "correct seasonings." Good luck following recipes of experienced cooks. As a pre-beginning novice myself, I spend time trying to figure out the obvious. Methinks cooking is a secret society, LOL. __________________ XXXXXXX 7 XXXXXXX 14 XXXXXXX 21 XXXXXXX 28 XXXXXXX 35 XXXXXXX 42 Completed Beck Program-day 42. You’ve Met your goal. Congratulations!

This is true for any conversion! Pretty cool.

I've just started cooking organic foods for myself in the evenings nowadays instead of relaying on vegan/vegetarian tv dinners as a way to better my own health and weight loss progress. I was trying to figure out about using half a serving of pesto sauce with my stir-fry Shirataki noodles since the olive oil really kicks up the calories here!
