Because it’s been WAY too long since we’ve had a good, old-fashioned, knock-down-drag-out food fight around here (and when i read Brighterside’s headline the first time today, i misread “right” as “fight!😆🤣😂), i would like to propose a GT food fight!
I took the Little Daleks to go harvest blackcurrants from the backyard of a guy who posted on Kijiji in the free section. I’d never had them before, but I’ve wanted to visit a pick-your-own farm for over a decade (my ex refused to let us do it). I was planning to finally do it this month or next but this was free and…
I’m working tomorrow’s election here in my city, so I won’t be here ‘til late, if at all. Y’all be cool, okay?
I saw the promoted tweet last night. “Are you expecting? Questions about food? @CanIEatThisBot has tips from the FDA and Mayo Clinic.” But when I started asking questions, things got weird. Spoiler: It lies.
OK. I love King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls. ADORE THEM. But I can only get them in the States. Last time I was there I discovered they sell sandwich bread as well and I was in heaven.
Have we had a food post lately? I feel like we need one. It’s “winter” here in the Deep South (I had to wear socks today!) so I just feel like making nice one-pot meals. Who am I kidding, that’s all I make for dinner all year.
So what was for dinner, folks? We had chicken thighs with ras al hanout rubbed under the skin, crispy roast potatoes* and the honey crisp hard cider we got WinnieTheWoot for Christmas. Dr. Mrs. Hatrack and I had creme brulee for dessert but WtW passed on the grounds that she doesn’t like “squidgy” food and had a…
These traditional Chinese Suomian noodles have been made in Nanshan Village for over 300 years, and supposedly there are only 300 people left in the world who know how to make them. That’s because the process of making these noodles is a little bit more unique than making your typical noodles—it can sometimes look…
Tell me all the exciting things that you’ve made/are planning to make in the kitchen this week.
What are you eating today/cooking to eat this week?
Here, the weather is almost perfectly nice for the first time in weeks and we are enjoying a chicken curry I made this afternoon and let slowly stew. I’ve made us a beef pot roast with a beer broth. It’s going to make for an awesome french dip tomorrow. I have a million and one doctors appointments this week and I…
First, the recipe as I usually make it. Feeds two-four, see part three
As I have mentioned before, the USDA was pushing for food labels emphasizing “solid fats and added sugars,” or SoFAS. The labels approved by the FDA will now include added sugars, but it only includes saturated fats. Figuring out the amount of saturated fat is more an art than a science because we don’t have any cheap…
Amidst the clamor over genetically modified crops, there’s an underlying point that’s still being missed: Nobody really knows what constitutes a genetically modified crop.
In keeping with my theme of posting food or politics, I made some shrimp and scallop (mostly scallop) scampi on a whim. Thanks to Krabby for putting the idea in my head, I just had to use bay scallops (the good scallops).
What is the best thing to add to chocolate? I vote for mint but mostly because I’m sitting around and eating mint m&ms, secretly in the library. Nom nom nom nom.
In the past few years there has been a disturbing trend in urban/hipster “foodie” circles of Columbusing Korean food in an attempt to cash in on its reputation for unparalleled deliciousness.* And like most examples of greedy cultural appropriation, the trend can be marked by its abyssmal ignorance of the culture…
What are y’all up to? Here in Europeland it’s early afternoon already. Also, food.
When you don’t check the cooking time on a new recipe. I’m making lamb korma on something of a whim. After I got all the ingredients and got well into cooking, I noticed the 2 hour simmer period at the end. It seems korma is stew... What’s for lunch (or dinner)?
Can you think of any others that seem oddly delicious together? I thought blue cheese dressing and hummus together was strange and delicious enough but what about these?!?!??! I’m gonna try hot cheetos in pudding.
