next time I make spicy salsa, I'll try to limit the amount of chili peppers that go into it

Shirtless George:  Trust me, that is not true.  With the possable exception of something like a chili or soup, which you can make more of to try to bring the level of heat down, once the food is made too spicy, nothing can be done.  It's much easier to leave it out than to take it out or dilute it once it's in.  The same goes for salt.  One of the biggest mistakes beginner or novace cooks make is using too much or too little salt in their food or not knowing how to apply it properly to their food.

I just made homemade strawberry rhubarb pie. next dessert projects will be tiramisu from scratch, followed by lemon poppyseed scones and key lime pie.

I have homemade pulled pork sandwiches that were just as delicious as what you'd find in a restaurant.

I've decided to start using the white nettle that's taking over the east border of my property and have been mixing it with other greens when I cook them. Now if someone could please tell me a use for the garlic mustard that's everywhere in my neighborhood?

I had to start eating more greens for health reasons, I personally like steamed spinach and steamed kale, with melted butter and either pink salt or sea salt, whichever is available.Do love steamed asparagus too, topped with bearnaise sauce or hollandaise sauce.

I did not grow up in a home where greens were on the table, but since I spent a couple years in the South a while back, I've learned how good they can be.  I have it as one of my culinary goals next winter to learn at least a half dozen side dishes that feature greens, and I understand kale is a very easy one to work with.  I think I prefer the tender, fast-cooking greens over the heartier, longer-cooking ones.

If anyone here is looking to eat healthier, steamed kale is delicious, I just tried it for the first time, with a tablespoon of melted butter, a dash of pink salt (or any salt will do) for an added touch I added one diced hungarian wax pepper. it turned out delicious
