I read something in the newspaper the other day. Certain companies such as Kraft and Betty Crocker have decided not to use certain terms in their recipes anymore. Some of these include braise, sear, broil, fold, beat and simmer. They know that there are too many out there today who don't know what they mean. It's very sad that cooking has become such a dying art. I'm trying to revive that in my household, but I don't know what some of those terms mean either! But I'm determined to make cooking a big part of my training and teaching of my children.
