Recipe Testing Fridays

I love my job! I spend the week developing and editing recipes for the marketing department; print ads, the website, newsletters, product packaging, dietitian food demos, and even cooking classes require tested, descriptive and user friendly recipes. Sometimes we are given tough to meet deadlines and are crunched for time (yes it is a real job folks!)
We also provide nutrition facts for these recipes so accurate measuring during testing on Fridays is crucial! Weighing foods before and after cooking, measuring amounts of marinades being absorbed, accounting for water and ash losses; that is science right there! All my years of chemistry, bio chemistry, organic chemistry are put into use (sort of lol). We still have a lot of fun!
