On the other hand, explanation of terms and techniques and methods, from the 
perspective of a blind person, is what this was originally about, and I 
think that we should get back to that aspect for those who don't know.  This 
is why I prefer recipes that are not just cut and pasted from the Internet. 
"Cook until golden brown" is not preferable, because color means nothing to 
me.  I would rather have a recipe that has meaning to a blind person that 
includes time and temperature or a way to tell when the food is done.

Be positive!  When it comes to being defeated, if you think you're finished, 
you! really! are! finished!

As a totally blind person, I don't mind those cooking terms.  One
learns with experience to judge in other ways, by smell, texture,
etc.  Let's not avoid common terms in cooking.  A person can
always ad to his explanation of a recipe.
