    What was the calendar app that they showed?

    I, also would like to know what JM did after he sprinkled baking soda in the pan to clean it

    • Violet says:

      Sprinkle the baking soda over the crud so that you achieve even coverage, then pour enough water over it to make a paste. Leave the pan to soak overnight.

    The dial oven thermometers are low end and you get what you pay for them. Taylor Co. makes a professional oven guide glass thermometer that works great (similar to the mercury style, but with dye).
    The crack in a cheesecake is indicative of overbaking. One good method is to use an instant read thermometer which should read ideally at 150 degrees. When testing for the temp, don't puncture the cheesecake multiple times because it can weaken the surface structure which can also cause cracking so it's best to take the temp through the same hole each time or insert the thermometer sideways through the part of the cake that rises above the pan. Once removed from the oven, be sure to run a knife around the sides of the pan freeing the baked cheesecake from it otherwise if not this can also cause cracking.

    How do I get the "inside" tips for beautiful skin from the Mother's Day episode? There were different types of nuts, etc. Thank you.

    I enjoy watching The Kitchen. I love all the hosts and how they interact with one another. I just watched the segment, "Put An Egg On It". Jeff made a comment, "Chickens are gonna lay an egg no matter what so you might as well eat them. They can still live on. Regardless". I'm a vegan and do not want to sound uptight; but, 300 million chickens languish in tiny cages producing our country's eggs. They are by far the most abused type of animal in the United States. They live in long, windowless sheds containing rows of stacked "battery cages". Up to 10 hens live in 1 wire cage roughly the size of a file drawer. A portion of their beak is burned or sliced off without painkillers. They never leave those cages. Ever. That's their life until they die. Male chicks are useless to the industry so they're ground alive. That's how the chicken Jeff is referring to lives on. I still love you Jeff. Thank you for letting me vent.
