You Need To Cook More Often

How many of you all disagree that the spice (seasoning) Thyme tastes "hot" or peppery hot. I have used this in many dishes and still someone thinks it is hot. WTH? Give me a break! They were just trying to blame me for their own error in choosing something they didn't like eating as it was mostly pre-made/frozen when she bought it. I only added Thyme cause frozen pizzas are usually bland. Do you eat many frozen pizzas? I hate it for the most part, it tastes like cardboard. But my mom loves that crap. She used to eat it every darn day for like a year or so for lunch not very long ago, gasp! In the microwave though, instead of the oven like I put this one in. I always have to add my own seasonings when I make a single one for myself, but not everyone here likes the toppings I like so had to suffer with it and just add Thyme. I feel it was so ignorant of someone to accuse me of adding hot flavour with Thyme though, and not very intelligent. Thyme has alot of healthy benefits to it as well. How unintelligent do you think the person was who accused me of adding "hot" Thyme? Haha.

yes, in my home i also use to cook and some if my companion describe my cooking style as best and they really appreciate. the bad things when they get so use to get me cook they become so lazy and this becomes annoying to me. when i do all the cooking and nobody help and besides the only help they do is to clean the food on there plate. i also like those companion in the house to learn to cook so that they would not depend me any longer. the problem comes when i would left and they would go hungry. so it s important they learn to cook and try to do it hand on. even if they have money they should not depend on it to buy ready cook food and instead they should learn to buy fresh fruits, vegetables and meat from the market or even in grocery store so they would learn to save money and become more thrifty.

if they learned some basic food techniques and know what various seasonings taste like then it would be easier at least, i agree. pre-packaged foods are not all that helathy all the time, in moderation is probably ok like with most other things in general. i hope they start to learn how to cook there as well. i just wanted someone here to actually realize what the spice tasted like, i thought everyone knew what Thyme tasted like, or at least knew it wasn't "hot". She should have known also that I don't care for hot flavoured food so why would I put that on it. She keeps saying I should know this or that but she doesn't know basic things as well.

Maybe it was the thyme's interaction with the seasoning on the pizza, or maybe it WAS the seasoning on the pizza. Thyme tastes like paper to me ... maybe like money, maybe like tree-leaves; it's been a long while since I've 'had Time for Thyme' (har-dee-har )

Nah it would have only been the seasoning on the pizza, they sometimes use hot pepper flakes and such and if she would have read the ingredients on the box it would have probably said it on there as well. Time for Thyme? Haha, you kill me.

Well nailtech I’m going to try this again. I have already posted on here but when I go to check it the posting has disappeared. Any way Pizza is on the bottom of my list of foods or dishes I like to ea. Thyme is not a hot or spicy herb. It is strong though. I usually associate it with pork or poultry, I like it but I use it sparingly because to me it has a strong flavor.

Sorry your post was not there the first time you posted it, these things can happen. I get frustrated when it happens too. Some people do not like pizza at all, there was a long period of time I couldn't eat it cause we were eating it weekly and got so sick of it. I only sprinkled alittle on the pizza, as I know it can be strong. I use it mainly in Italian foods, meatloaf and possible pork now that I know it tastes good with the pork chops I make.

No, that seasoning is not hot, geesh. Next time don't tell anyone you added it, just do it for yourself. There are some frozen one's I don't mind and I'm the only one who's eating them, so I'm not too particular. I have had some that tasted like cardboard though, ugh. I've already bought the one's the bigger supermarkets make and those I don't mind. I still add my own ingredients though, mostly mushrooms, black olives and more cheese. But, like I said, I'm the only one here so I can do as I please, thank goodness, haha! I can't understand why they said it's hot though, not at all.

Yea, next time I won't tell anyone, it isn't worth the trouble if someone will be nagging me about it in the least. I don't mind their homemade but store bought ones that look like something I could have made, either. I don't understand either, these people I live with here can be obnoxious and just so uninformed.

There is nothing hot about this seasoning. My mother uses it all the time in her meals. I don't like boxed pizza all that much either. I love dominoes and papa john's pizza the best.

I use many other seasonings, but lately have heard alot of good things about this one so use it more often. Dried but it's still quite good on some things. Dominoes and Papa John's pizzas I don't recall even if I have ever had, but for the most part I just like my own from scratch.
