Cooking lessons from my siblings

I discovered while visiting my family that my youngest two siblings (19 and 17) have taken over nearly all the cooking duties for the family. Some cooking tips I observed while there:

  • It is impossible to have too much garlic. At my sister's direction, I peeled 6 heads of garlic for one meal's worth of garlic red potatoes. There were a few potatoes leftover--no garlic.
  • It is impossible to put cayenne pepper in the wrong dish. Cayenne pepper in spaghetti? No problem.
  • It's a whole lot more fun to make a big mess in the kitchen when Dad is going to do the dishes.
