    Wrong! 

    Soak 'em.

  4. 4. If you don't have a non-stick pan, how do you keep your food from sticking?

    Butter, olive oil, and vegetable oil all work!

  5. 5. Which of these ingredients can you add when tomato sauce is too acidic?

    A little sugar can help balance the taste if your tomatoes are out of season, straight from a can, or just underripe.

  6. 6. To cook 1 cup of uncooked rice, how much water do you need?

    To cook long-grained white rice, use a 2 to 1 ratio.

    A skimmer is used for picking up food out of hot oil and removing the excess foam.
