It's easy to fall into old cooking baits, putting food on the stove, waiting for the steam, then pulling it off before the smoke fills the house. Howwever, people may not know that if you leave the food on the stove or in the oven or on the grill just a little while longer...magic can happen.


Reddit user, u/Vinicelli, wanted to hear what they should let sit on the stove a little longer when they asked:

Which foods taste better when they're a little burnt?

Grilled marshmallows with that crispy black shell. Don't know why but I love it

MinnaLido

I don't know why but the image of someone sitting there flipping marshmallows on a grill with tongs is getting me.

Koreans Call This "Knurungji"

When cooking rice on the stove, the rice at the bottom of the pot is usually a little more cooked than the rice on top. If I'm careless, that rice can end up being burnt.

On the other hand, when rice is only slightly burnt such that it turns into a nutty brown color, it becomes fantastic.

Plantains. Those little burnt crispy pieces you get sometimes are the best thing ever.

Also onions that have been roasted with a turkey or chicken or whatever. You get the sweet caramelized onion and a little burned char piece with the onion. I want to top everything with those.

Sausages in general. Just delightful with a bit of char. Some can even be better when a little overcooked and crumbly (black and bleu brats, though varies a lot by butcher).

Roasted Brussels sprouts. Don't knock it til you've tried it - they're soft on the inside.

It blows my mind how many people legit hate brussel sprouts.

Put them in a casserole dish with some oil, salt, and pepper. Bake them at 350 for like 10-15 minutes and you're all set

There's a very fine line with bacon. I need some chew

Candied bacon is indeed always amazing with some char.

Grilled cheese duh

How did I need to scroll this far down to find this answer? When making a grilled cheese, I always use cheese that's slightly larger than the bread, so that the edges of the cheese melts directly on the pan. And then getting the bread to a perfect golden-brown, or slightly more if you feel like it, is just perfection.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
