What are some awesomely useful appendices, charts, and references that I can add to my home-grown cookbook?

My wife and I are in the process of creating a hand-written family cookbook (in a large, squared Moleskine, natch), that we hope will be a useful tool and some day a family heirloom.
I'd like the back of the book to be a large collection of kitchen references. Stuff like:
How to brew coffee (amount of grounds per amount of water, water temp, etc)
How to brew tea (temperature and steep time per type of tea)
How to cut a whole chicken into pieces
The question is, what sort of kickass references should we add to our book? No specific criteria, I'm just looking for any great kitchen references that aren't technically "recipes" (I'm always looking for those too, but there's tons of recipe questions out there already).
Hit me with some great resources and kitchen hacks to share with my future kids!
