    Don't want to cry while cooking onions? KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!! It does help!!! Breathe ONLY through your nose and don't talk! Try it! You'll see I'm right! Or have a tums or rolaids in your mouth at the time if the onion is especially potent due to coming from a drought region.

                    I do salt my pasta water. Not as much as Frank did, but I do a few pinches

                      Boiling point elevantion...pff.

                      If you would boil 1l of water and add 120g of salt (That is a lot ;) ) the boiling point would be elevated by 2,1K.

                      Most certainly not relevant for cooking. But use a lid for your pot.

                          When I cook spaghetti I break it in half and stand it up in the pot and as it cooks it falls down and doesn't stick together which is an advantage. The second advantage is that I don't have to turn it around my fork as many times when I eat it.
                          What are the disadvantages of breaking it in half?

                            The fact an Italian will look at you with horror if you even cut cooked spaghetti goes to show how seriously they take their pasta. Same goes with Cappuccino at any other time of the day than mid-morning - its just not done and if you do, you will forever be labelled as a heathen.

                                        Sprouted garlic may be slightly more bitter (some people really enjoy bitter), but don't throw it out, that's so dumb. It's healthier than unsprouted garlic. I can't believe people throw them out

                                          I've only ever seen people snap pasta in half (besides when using a small pot) is if a small child is eating said spaghetti.
