Hard as it is to imagine, there are people out there who loathe garlic and onions. Some might have allergies or medical conditions like IBS, or are supertasters (i.e. people who carry a certain gene that makes them extremely sensitive to how certain foods taste). Others might just be picky eaters.

Eggs are incredibly important to cooks, and not just because they're tasty and a complete protein (many erratic genius/artist types make a point of eating an egg or two for breakfast). Yes, they are great when perfectly poached, scrambled, hard-boiled, and even scram-boiled, but they serve literally dozens of functions when used in recipes, especially baked goods.

Fall is a time of change. The leaves change color, the weather changes from warm to cool, and we change our clocks to fall back an hour. This last change means that many of us will get home from work in pitch-black darkness; for me, the early onset of night makes me less interested in cooking dinner and more interested in getting in my sweats, throwing leftovers in the microwave, and binge-watching The Affair.

When you're a vegan, meals must be pre-planned in order to ensure you're not using animal products of any kind. Make your next cookie recipe a little bit easier by learning what sorts of things you can use to substitute eggs.

Makeup can get expensive, but removing it from your eyes shouldn't have to be. Thankfully, some DIY eye makeup remover probably already exists in your refrigerator, kitchen pantry, or medicine cabinet.

I'm constantly searching for a homemade pizza dough that tastes good but isn't too challenging to execute. In other words, a recipe that doesn't require any arcane "dough whispering" skills. However, my hunt may be coming to an end thanks to one celebrity chef's concept.

There's a lot you can do with eggs, but usually cooks use them as ingredients for bigger and better recipes. But in this recipe, the egg takes all the glory! It's called Scotch eggs, and they traditionally consist of a hard-boiled egg, wrapped in sausage and coated with breadcrumbs. Then they're deep-fried and usually served cold.

Vegan baking is complicated, requiring substitutes for starch, flour, and just about everything else, but the result is 100% animal product-free goodness.

Raw food diets are fast becoming a popular and healthy lifestyle due to its all-natural slant, and in this video Chrissy Bix shows you how to make a delicious raw mango and berry pie. The raw pie crust is nut and date-based and requires a blender to get the correct dough-like consistency. From there it can be transferred directly into a pie dish and topped with blueberries, raspberries (fresh or frozen) and mango. It can be served with Keffir or cashew cream, both of which are good whipped cr...

Babies, unsurprisingly, are extremely fragile their first few months on earth, and so need the best care necessary to help adjust them to living outside their mother's snug womb. While mothers can't always be at their babies' sides to cuddle and reassure them (though most babies cry out loud and often for such pleasures), they can make comfy, warm blankets that serve as good substitutes.

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to graph a parabola and also how to find its roots which are also known as zeroes. He gives the quadratic formula of how to find x-intercepts of a parabola. He takes an example and substitutes the values and finds out the values of the roots of the parabola. Now he substitutes these values in the equation to obtain the corresponding y coordinates. Now using these pairs of values he plots the parabola on a graph and draws it. This video shows how to fi...

In this video the author shows how to graph using an X-Y table. He shows how to do this with a sample equation. He builds a table of x, y values where he takes sample values for x like -1, 0, 1 and now he substitutes these values in the equation of the line and obtains the corresponding y values. Now finally he has an x, y value table which now he shows how to plot it on a coordinate plane. He plots all the three pairs on the graph and connects them with a line finally obtaining the resultant...

In this tutorial, the author shows how to determine if a point lies on a given line which is in Point Slope Form. To show the method he takes a sample point order pair and an equation of a line in its point slope form. Now he substitutes the value of the x, y order pair and the equation of the line, and solves the equation on both the sides. If both sides match it means that the point lies on the given line, or else it does not lie on the current line. In this video, the instructor shows how ...

In this tutorial the author shows how to derive a slope-intercept equation of a line given an X-Y table. He explains that the general form of slope intercept form which is y = m*x + b. Now he intends to find value of slope, i.e. m first. Now slope is change in y over change in x. He computes the slope using the X-Y values from the table. Next he substitutes a pair of x, y value in the equation to compute the value of y intercept b. Now finally substituting the values in the equation the slop-...

In this video tutorial the author shows how to find the surface area of a cylinder. He shows a four step approach to solve this problem. First he gives us a formula to find the surface area of a cylinder, where Surface area A = 2 * Pi * R * R + 2 * Pi * R * H, where R is the radius of the base of the cylinder and H is the height of the cylinder. Now he identifies those values and substitutes them in the formula giving the surface area of the cylinder. This video shows how to compute the surfa...

In this video the author shows how to find out if a Point lies on a Line in Slope Intercept Form. He shows it by an example where he takes a point, which is an ordered pair in the form (x, y) and a line, which is an first degree equation. Now he substitutes the values of x and y in the equation and checks if both the sides of the equation match. If it matches we can conclude that the point lies on the line. By following the method given in this tutorial you can find out if a given point lies ...

Salt seems to sneak in everywhere, especially for big meals like Thanksgiving, when it seems every dish calls for salt. Some ideas for cutting down on salt is to cook with unsalted butter, low-sodium broths or use salt substitutes when cooking.

Petit fours are excellent substitutes for hors d'oeuvres, combining chicness and appetite piquing sweetness for a wonderful treat that all your guests will enjoy.

This little ring is a frequently used chainmailing tool. The ring tool substitutes for a pair of pliers, and works for about eighty percent of chainmail patterns. Watch this metalsmithing video to see how the ring tool is used.

This guitar lesson covers two shapes of the 9th chord (dominant). They are great substitutes for the regular 7th chords you might use in a normal blues. Any time you would normally play a 7th chord you could substitute it for a 9th chord.

Most beginners ask how to break away from basic chords and get new ideas. Check out this instructional guitar video that shows you various ways into playing the blues. The first tutorial video uses a mix of simple chord animations and video footage in an attempt to show how simple inner chording can be used as a step to blues improvisation.

In order to get a ripped lower and upper chest, without going to a gym, you will need something to prop your knees up. You can use your bed or a chair. To recreate your incline and decline chest press exercises, a modified pushup substitutes for it. Watch your posture and your spine alignment, when you are doing them.

In this video tutorial the instructor shows how to find Z with the Z-Score formula. He uses a sample problem to show how to find this. He tells you the formula for z which is a real simple formula. Now he notes down the formula on the board and brings in the example problem with sample values. He substitutes the values in the z-score formula and solves it finding out the z value. This video shows how to find z using the z-score formula and also demonstrates the formula using a simple example.

In this video the instructor shows how to graph a line using X-Y table values. He specifies a four step approach. In the first step he picks numbers for the value of x. In the next step he substitutes the values of x in the equation of the line to obtain the corresponding y values, in the third step he plots these ordered pairs on a graph sheet. Finally in the fourth step he joins them resulting in a straight line for the given equation. This video clearly shows how to graph a line using an X...

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to solve linear and quadratic equations. It is a liner quadratic system where he shows a parabola and a straight line and he intends to solve the points where the line intersects the parabola.

Now he shows the factors of the obtained polynomial equation and there by finding the values of x coordinates. Now he substitutes these values of x in the origin...

Lactose intolerance used to mean a diminished diet. Fortunately, now there are plenty of alternatives, as well as ways to help you tolerate lactose, or milk sugar. Learn how to deal with lactose intolerance with this how to video.

Few things in life are as relaxing and enjoyable as baking. When I'm having a bad day, I make cookies. When I'm stressed out, I bake a cake. When I have a free Sunday with nothing to do but listen to music and drink coffee, I bake a tart or a batch of cupcakes.

For me, shredded coconut is something that is eaten several times a week in a variety of ways—and that includes in savory dishes. It can be added to just about anything, and this is a good thing if you enjoy having some variety in your diet. Because I get tired of eating the same foods all the time, over the last few weeks I've tried some pretty interesting and simple ways to use coconut flakes in order to keep my finicky palate satisfied.

Boxed brownie mixes advertise their convenience compared to homemade brownies—with only a few ingredients, they promise a moist, chocolatey crumb. However, these "instant" mixes still require fresh ingredients and a baking time that matches that of homemade brownies. When you're craving a chocolate fix but you're coming up short on eggs, oil, and time, don't despair: you can still make brownies using a can of soda. Two Different Methods, One Soda Required

Polenta can cause risotto-like anxiety for the most experienced cook. First of all, making polenta is time-consuming—it can often take upwards of 45 minutes (unless you use this shortcut). And in the midst of this long cooking time, you're constantly stirring to keep the polenta from becoming lumpy. Even after taking the utmost of care, the polenta can still turn out too loose, too firm, or too grainy.

No matter which brand you buy, microwave popcorn never tastes as good as its movie theater counterpart. Even if you pop it yourself on the stovetop and drizzle it with real butter, it doesn't have the same flavor. That's because movie theaters don't use real butter—their popcorn has one secret ingredient that gives it that distinct taste.

Consider the radish. This root vegetable is so sadly misunderstood sometimes, and that makes us sad because we adore its spicy flavor and crunchy texture. We're always on the lookout for unique food items that can be turned into a dish of wow and wonder with just a few simple steps, and radishes truly fit the bill.

There are a ridiculous number of onion varieties, so choosing the right onion can make my head spin sometimes. With four distinct types of "green onions" that all look almost the same, I'm guessing you have the same issue—but not once you know the secrets to identifying and properly using each of these green onion types.

If you're gluten-free, on a diet, or just cutting the carbs like me, eating a sandwich can be a dangerous game. There are traditional alternatives such as lettuce or egg wraps, but they have their drawbacks: they can't hold as many ingredients, they can be lack flavor when raw and un-rendered, and it's hard to layer the toppings and condiments to create your perfect bite.

There are rules that cooking in general always follows: cakes should be fluffy. Steaks should be heavily seasoned, and nowhere near a bottle of steak sauce. Every stock should start with aromatics (onions, carrots, & celery). And, until very recently, meringues should always be made with egg whites.

Let me start by saying something controversial: I despise the gluten-free fad. I think gluten is delicious (I go through at least two loaves of bread a week, with a healthy dose of pretzels and pasta in there as well), and I think many of the health myths surrounding gluten are either fabricated or hyperbolic.

Scented candles tend to magically turn a house into a home. The light flicker of the flame gives a relaxed or romantic tone to the atmosphere, and keeps the space smelling fragrant for hours. The only problem? Wax melts, and the candle becomes worthless after the wax is all gone. So how do you keep the flame going for more than a few hours? Simple, just remove the problematic ingredient—don't use wax!

One of the golden rules to cooking a Thanksgiving turkey is to place it on a roasting rack before it goes into the oven. Missing this step and cooking it directly on the pan will burn the bottom of the bird, resulting in overcooked, dry meat.

Sometimes you just want to kill a whole bunch of things at once, or to paraphrase Samuel L. Jackson in Jackie Brown, sometimes you absolutely, positively got to kill every mob in the room. Well, the automatic machine gun is the way to do it; accept no substitutes!
