Seriously y'all...I have fallen completely head over heels, infatuated, all I can think about, in LUV with "America's Test Kitchen".
It airs on my local PBS station (yes, I enjoy public broadcasting. So there!) every day, and is totally amazing.
Basically, they take a recipe go through every possible variation of technique, advice, and make all the mistakes, and find all the best ways to do things!
Last time I watched it all the way through, they were doing pepperoni pizza...not a difficult thing to make right?
Did you know that to cut down on the grease from things like sausage, pepperoni, or any other meat that you can cook it on a paper towel, in your microwave for about 1 minute? That cooks it enough to release most of the grease, absorb it in the paper towel, and it cuts your cooking time down, making sure your crust isn't too crunchy?
