The more I write, the more arbitrary rules I seem to make up. This page houses the ever-growing lists of Kitchen Axioms, David’s Guide to Living in a Recession tips, and whatever else seems to come up. Updated as I come up with more.
David’s Kitchen Axioms:
No. 1: Do as I say, not as I have only partially done.
No. 2: Hands over spoons. Always.
No. 3: When in doubt, improvise.
No. 4: Improvise all you like, but mind your crucial details. Also, learn from my mistakes. Please.
No. 5: With a little imagination, anything can be a quesadilla.
No. 6: Be frugal, not stupid.
No. 7: Taste, taste, and taste again.
No. 8: A roux burns the moment you ignore it.
No. 9: Always know where your towel is. And then make sure it’s under your cutting board.
