Looking to improve my grilling game

I'm an excellent cook, but a somewhat banal griller. Food comes off the grill fully cooked, and tasty enough, but it's never as notable as my indoor meals. How do I get out of my rut? [more inside]

safe to eat: expired bacon

I have some Sugardale bacon that has been stored in the freezer until today. It's best if used by date is September 2016. I was planning to thaw it and cook it for a recipe but then wondered if it's safe to consume.

Will No One Rid Me of this Troublesome... Cabbage?

We have been surprise-gifted with an extraordinary amount of red cabbage from a neighbor's extremely bountiful garden. Recipes needed! Bonus if the recipe somehow includes white carrots, because we have been gifted a shopping bag full of those as well. [more inside]

Chirashizushi ingredient suggestions?

I'm making chirashizushi tomorrow. Rice, fresh fish, tofu and mushrooms are no problem, but where I live [Ireland, and not Dublin] I don't have access to some of the other ingredients that typically crop up in recipes. Do good substitutes — that are likely to be available in, say, a good Western European greengrocer's — exist for lotus root and kampyo? Alternatively, what are some good Euro-ubiquitous ingredients for chirashizushi?

Twice in the last week, despite following recommended safety handling guidelines AND the same procedures I've been using w/o incident for the last 7 months, my freshly-expressed breastmilk has seemed to "curdle" in the bottle, but not actually go bad. What happened? More specifics and pix inside. [more inside]

Greatest Hits of Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian?

What it says on the tin. Do you own this cookbook? What are the best recipes in it? I find it to be very hit-or-miss. Certain staples (like pancakes) are so helpful but other recipes turn out just plain bad (I'm looking at you, tofu in tomato curry sauce). But I am just as loathe for it to collect dust. There are so many variations and tips: what are your favorites?

(UK) Food for single, lazy, cheap, wannabe-healthy vegan in shared flat?

As above! I can cook properly, but cooking by myself for myself doesn't motivate me much. I'd like to largely favour unprocessed food. I'm likely to be pretty tired initially (adapting to the 9 to 5 in London), and I'd like to keep as much of my spare time as possible for doing fun London things rather than elaborate cooking. I'm looking for suggestions and tips, e.g. "buy bags of this sort of frozen veg", and very quick and simple recipes. [more inside]
