    Yeah, I'm a single female and my technique is, wipe it with a towel and oil. If there are stuck on food particles, rub it harder. If that doesn't get rid of them, who cares, they're the size of a...

    Well, I cook for my family based on the fact that I like them and care about them. For everyone else, it's on the sliding scale of whether I like them, or whether I'd prefer for them to die a slow...

    You can easily season your own cast iron skillet. Basically, you put oil in a skillet and stick it in the oven for a half hour or so at 350 F; after you cook with it, clean it with a cloth and oil...

    Ehhhhh to the generalization. Yeah, I've got two X chromosomes, but if I'm cooking for myself, anything other than cooking meat in a pan for 15 minutes is fancy.

    I'll spend an hour to make a...

    I think that if you're coming from a higher carbohydrate, grazing diet, it makes sense that you'd be hungry, because it's a big change. You can try eating adding more starch (ie sweet potatoes or...

    I know what you mean. I fish, and have gotten over being squeamish about gutting them, etc, but I don't hunt, and am not actually planning on opossum-cide. But even my grandparents grew up in a time...

    It's how my great-grandparents cooked in the boonies of New England in the 20's or '30s. Their mom turned the fur from the rabbits into mittens for all the kids. Good times.
