Glass Measuring Cup

Why are the measurements on the wrong side of the cup? I hold the handle in my left hand and use my right to pour the liquid in.
Also, it there any way to save the painted markings on the cup? I hand wash them, being careful not to rub the paint. No matter how careful I am the paint wears off.
Thank you in advance, I've been wondering about it a long time.

Please post recipes for how to make chicken gravy, brown gravy and turkey gravy.

Mine is too runny and not very tasty.

Thank you.

Definition of a new word.

In a lot of the online websites I have been hearing the term "Cracked Out', "Cracked Up" or even "Really Cracked" I think it's a younger generation that is using it. Does anyone know what it means? I've noticed that it really does not pertain to any one food group......I'm lost.

Question about modifying a carrot cake recipe

I have a carrot cake recipe the whole family loves but I would like to try something a little different. I have a charred pineapple bourbon sauce that suggests pouring a 1/2 cup into the mix. I'm thinking if I do add it that I should reduce the oil by a 1/2 cup. Do you agree?

how long are eggs good for ?

I have hens so eggs are always coming in the back door :-)
I was wondering tho, how long is an egg good ?
When I use them I crack it open, if the yolk runs I toss it.
but if it stays round , I consider it good.

any help would be great .

No cook, but I'd like to learn

My Mother was a excellent cook, but she refused to teach me. I'd love to learn the basics hands-on if possible. Most cooking schools or classes cook food my husband and I would never eat. I have a few dishes that are my specialities, but I want to do more. Suggestions?

To freeze Or Not to freeze

I am wondering if I can freeze freshly shredded Parmesan cheese? It isn't something I use frequently, but would love to be able to have it on hand. Thank you ahead of time :)
