How do you eyeball it???
Hi Rachael and Friends,
I am a big fan of your shows and have been watching for quite some time now. My question is how do you “eyeball it”? I have been cooking since I was in high school, but really got better in college and still I can’t not grasp the concept of “eyeballing it”. I am soooooooo afraid that I will mess it up. How do I overcome this fear?
Generally speaking, Rachael’s basic measurements are as follows:
one heaping palmful=1 tablespoon
once around the pan=1 tablespoon
a pinch=1/4 teaspoon
But basically, that’s the whole reason Rachael doesn’t measure anything. You should cook to your taste. Since she is not a baker, where measurements really matter, you can really vary how you cook to your liking. So if Rachael says, “add hot sauce to taste,” it means, it’s up to you!
