I found a recipe in a book for chicken roasted over sliced potatoes and some sliced lemon. The chicken drips over the potatoes, which would be fine, but clots of blood also end up all over the potatoes. Pictures of this dish never show that of course. ...Read more
Don't heat it in the oven. The best way I've found is to put the meat in water-tight ziplock bags in not too thick a layer and let it steep in hot water. You don't want the beef temperature to go over 185 degrees. Reading More May...Read more
Have they engineered the flavor out of eggplant for appearance and shelf life? Supermarket eggplant used to be nasty looking in the winter here on the East Coast but it tasted good. Now, it looks perfect, shiny, tight unblemished skin. The problem is it doesn't have that distinctive eggplant taste,...Read more

Hard as it may seem to believe given the sleepy pace of the month so far, it’s time for us to begin our consideration of which books we’d like to cook from together as a community in August 2021. What is your pleasure for the month when many of us...Read more
Help! I'm tired of grinding apples to avoid adding sugar :/">Help! I'm tired of grinding apples to avoid adding sugar :/
I found this recipe for Apple Oatmeal Muffins and was inspired. Not only does recipe use all ALL oat flour (therefore more fiber) but I felt confident I could make these muffins w/out an added sweeter - the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of Maple Syrup. I ground the oats, and...Read more
My father had a huge 750 gram wagyu steak in the freezer and would serve it for me for dinner at his place. He took it out at around noon and placed it in the fridge for 5-6 hours, but unfortunately I had to cancel our dinner together as I...Read more
