non-nom: helpful tip about oil

right now, i am roasting spaghetti squash in my oven. i will post a blog about this nom either tonight or tomorrow. but – to the point – in this process, i have found something that will very much help me in my cooking endeavors: A TABLE TELLING YOU THE SMOKING POINT OF OILS! per the recipe from the food network, i am to roast my spaghetti squash at 450 after putting extra virgin olive oil on it. within 10 minutes, there was smoke all over my kitchen. why? because the smoking point of evoo is 320! that’s why! ugh – food network, you have failed me. for future reference, i will be choosing my roasting oils based on this chart.
