      It's worth having recipes for simple things. Great starting points for people just learning to cook, and you might even learn of a deviation you never even thought of.

      Also this. The internet taught me how to do a lot of things my parents just couldn't be fricked to pass on, like shaving and tying a tie and literally anything finance related.

          My aunt is 78 years old. She was trailblazees feminist girlboss. She had big career. No kids. Traveled every country on earth.
          Then about ~15years ago she cracked and started to larp as tradwoman.
          But she can't cook or even clean her house. She is married and without her husband. House would be even bigger mess. Right now. Its kinda disgusting. Nit messy. But not clean.

      This. There are parents out there that are too busy to cook so they order food almost every day and thus kids aren’t exposed to cooking or good food

      My two nephews are examples of this. Both are secretly picky eaters because of two parents who work in education jobs that have long commutes. They might also be on the spectrum, but that’s another story…

      My mom “taught” me skills like how to cook and sew, but she was never actually hands on about it. Her way of teaching was just like “this is sewing” and showing it to me. Same with cooking. She just said “this is how you make chicken cutlets”. Chicken cutlets is pretty basic though, which funny enough, was her best dish. Her other dishes she typically made included chili, meatloaf, and stew, which was her worse dish but I was always too afraid to criticize it.

      Her stew recipe was passed down from her grandma, and is supposed a “kosher israeli” version of stew, but it was basically brisket, potatoes and peas swimming in some watery broth made of paprika and ketchup. I guess it’s similar to Hungarian goulash but no matter how much hot sauce or seasoning I would add, it would be bland as shit. For the longest time, I thought all stew was like hers. My mind was blown once I tried Guinness Stew.

          Also probably fricked them up the first time. But, seriously, when people use it to learn and apply that knowledge, more power to them. In the old days, you actually had to work in a restaurant to discover the secret ingredient is lots of fat and salt to taste. And good luck finding potato ricers; our cooks used 100 gallon steam kettles and power tools to prep like this:

                depending on what brand you get, there will be a different amount of salt in it.

                It is absolute a factor in baking, I've worked at two different bakeries for a total of three years and the shit bakeries do to ensure consistent product is nuts

                True and that's very different from a home setting. Using unsalted butter at home "for consistency" then add salt by the teaspoons is just moronic. For water content, the water content between butters it varies more by brand than by salt content. Yes if you're a bakery then you want to be nazi about consistency and also hand picked which brand of butter you use but if you're a home baker you can easily end up using an unsalted butter with higher water content than a salted one. If you want to be total nazi at home then you also have to adjust the recipe based on water content of the different brands of unsalted butters.

                Are you sure you're not thinking of meat? I'm pretty sure butter used to just have all the water removed which kept it preserved. Like how ghee can stay good at room temperature for months without salt because it has no water. But modern butter is about 18% water.

                That's strange because just removing water makes butter last a long time like I said. I don't think salt really acts as a preservative when something is lacking water. But maybe it depended on the conditions and equipment available, some people might've had to just use salt instead and couldn't get that much water out.

    even with basic shit, if making something for the first time i'd want to start with a ratio of ingredients and cooking times that i am fairly certain will at least come out edible, especially if i don't plan on making it regularly
    if i do end up making it again, i'll make adjustments based on how the original recipe turned out, but for the first attempt i see no harm in ensuring it won't be a terrible waste of ingredients

    It is helpful to know how much of certain ingredients I should use. So for example, if I'm making garlic mashed potatoes, I'd want confirmation on the amount of butter and milk. Sure you can eyeball it. But like they say, trust but verify.

      There's not a single proper mashed potato recipe anywhere online. Or in cook books for that matter. You'll get a recipe that works, sure. But no more than that.

    The recipes in your pic aren't as simple as they may seem. Sour cream to potato ratio is also very important of which newbies might not know the proper amount. There's also spices and other ingredients the recipe maker might add that aren't usual. In short you should stfu

And what a great way to do it... Instill in the minds of those who had shithead parents that couldn't be bothered to properly raise their kid that THEY are the baseline for normalcy, and that people who parents did what the frick they're supposed to do are "privileged". As if raising and teaching your kid is somehow above and beyond what normal people can do.

        If scrolls were able to last that long, I'm sure whatever we come up with to store the internet would be able to last at least as long. Tell me though anon, what led you to ask this?

          I was the one who posted about the Library of Alexandria above and I think it just got me on a track of how information can be preserved for thousands of years or longer. The scrolls were in the perfect conditions to preserve things like scrolls, but storing unfathomable amounts of binary data for that long is an interesting conundrum. I bet the Library of Congress has a whole website for their digital archiving program

            Ah, I see. Now that I think about it, you're correct; any form of digital storage servers would need to be so enormous, they might take up the the entirety of the caves, and they would not have the benefit of being optimized for preservation the way the scrolls were. I take back what I said, I doubt anything could successfully preserve that much data, digitally, at least in natural caves, at the very least without significant loss.

            They'll be looking at relatively active archiving, with media only needing to last a few decades. (Keeping software for reading the data alive that long is harder.)
            If you want stuff to last a really long time, carve it into granite or basalt. Those should last longer than all human history.

    You'd be surprised to see how many ways people who don't know how to cook can frick up mashed potatoes. Lurk here long enough and you may get some idea. Plenty of people would over mix, under or over cook, under or over season, under cook the garlic, scorch the garlic, add too much garlic, add too much sour cream, you name it. Many people don't know what sort of texture properly cooked potatoes should have, or that it's possible to water log them.
