  1. Once I saw a guy stirring in a teflon pan with a fork. I was like Jesus Christ man wtf. Please wood or plastic for the sake of your pan.

  2. Thanks April, I will be using your recipe tonite. I must say though, use a non metal tong or you're going to scratch your beautiful cookware. I cringed every time you stirred. Yikes!
