I was a strict vegetarian/vegan for my formative learning-to-cook-for-myself years, so cooking meat and fish is a big mystery to me at 27. Last year I roasted a chicken and became confused when I couldn’t find the meat. I searched everywhere on top of the chicken for the white meat, only to find skin stretched over nearly bare bones. 20 minutes later I discovered that I had it upside down.

I have an angry, teething toddler trying to get into my lap, so you’ll have to settle for a photo-less post in list form.
