Are you kidding us with this question??

The most basic knowledge of the metric system tells you that a gram is a specific measure of weight.  A kilogram is 1,000 grams.

I think you need some math tutoring, or another trip through the elementary school classes you slept through.

Dear Guest,

It means that whoever called you that is an idiot or a moron who should be ignored.  Generic comes from the word "genus."  Words like "general" as in the expression "in general" or "generality" meaning a non-specific example of something come from "genus."

In Biology, plants and animals are classified using a multi-tiered … Read more

Greetings:

This is the basis of all the "Pick-Four" lotteries around the country.

There are 10,000 possible combinations of the numbers one through four.  They range from 0000 to 9999.

How you arrive at the answer is rather simple.  10,000 is 10x10x10.  If you start with 10 you have 10 possible combinations of one-digit numbers … Read more

Whenever you darn please??  And if anyone questions you on it...for example:  "Why are you wearing that (ugly/silly/stupid looking/ridiculous tie?"  You simply say "My "Wife/Daughter/Granddaughter/Niece/Mother/....(or whoever else you want to say) gave me this tie.  And I picked this very special occasion to wear it so I could say thank you for the wonderful and special gift by wearing … Read more

Corned beef is made from a cut of meat known as the "brisket" which comes from the shoulder part of the animal.

The way it works is the closer to the chest the meat comes from - the tougher. The chuck and the brisket come from the shoulder part of the beef - the … Read more

You just did.  And you did it right.

Actually, the word was created by the folks in Louisiana after they noticed a large influx of Canadians to their territory.  The Louisiana style of speech is rather casual and some words or syllables just sort of slide together.  So the natives pronounced the word "Canadian" as "Cajun."  The "cajuns" … Read more

I'm not sure I understand your question.  I'm going to assume that you mean "How do you translate a fraction to a decimal value and thereby come up with a percentage."

First, you need to know what a fraction is.  Fractions are expressed as one number over another...such as 1/3 means "one-third" or "one over … Read more

Dear Guest:

There are the same number of chromosomes in a liver cell as in every other cell of the human body: 48

The only exception is in the egg cell in the woman and the sperm cell in the man.  Those cells have 24.  When they combine and the egg is fertilized, the total … Read more

I worked for many years in many different restaurants and commercial kitchens.  Early in my career I would ask how long something should cook, and the answer would invariably be "Until it is done" which was usually accompanied by an impatient and withering look from the chef or fellow cookRead more

I see in your profile that you were born in 1994.  That makes you 15 years old, and puts you in about the 10th grade.  Am I right so far??

The answer is 33% or expressed as a decimal .33

You should have learned this about 5 years ago.  Did you sleep through 5th grade arithmetic??  Did … Read more

This is an easy one.  Get a good sharp knife.  Cut the lobster tail right down the middle with the shell still on.  You can ask the fish-monger where you bought the tails to do this for you.  He will most likely do it gladly.  If you decide to do it yourself, go ahead...be brave   ;-)  Just don't go all the way … Read more

This is an easy one.  The simple answer is "Yeast" which is a species of fungus.  There are many, many different types of yeast that all have different properties and functions.  Yeast is used mostly for two purposes: Making bread rise, and fermenting alcoholic beverages like beer.  Any bread recipe starts with the instruction of mixing yeast in warm … Read more

Heavens, NO!!  The peppers won't stand up to the heat of the oven if you pre-cook them.  They will start off too soft and will fall apart before the stuffing has a chance to cook.

Mix your stuffing first.  Then core and trim the peppers.  Stuff the peppers and put them into a baking dish with a couple … Read more

I'm assuming you mean "How do I sear pork chops and then *bake* them"....right??

In that case, the simple answer is "Just do it."  But I will expand on that answer a bit.

First, take the pork chops out of the fridge.  Take them out of the package, give them a quick rinse and pat … Read more
