How do I change things so that I have enough food at home? [more inside]
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]
My cousin is eating a ketogenic diet due to a cancer diagnosis. He and his wife and another couple are coming to dinner at my house in a few weeks. To add to the fun, with the exception of butter, my cousin’s wife doesn’t eat dairy. [more inside]
Help me make the dopest fucking apple butter. [more inside]
My sister-in-law and her husband are moving to Chicago next month. I'd like to get them a gift certificate to use when they get there. They'll be living in Edgewater. What's a good coffee shop or coffee roaster in the area? (Other recommendations welcome.)
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.
My boyfriend and I will be arriving at LAX around 9:30 on a Friday morning and are looking for a place to have a relaxing breakfast/brunch/lunch before we have to drive for a couple hours to our final destination. [more inside]
I'm on a very low inflammatory diet for the time being. How should I eat every day to make sure I have enough energy and calories to sustain me? [more inside]
Is it dangerous to cook or eat boiled Nyquil? [more inside]
I tried my hand at creating a sourdough starter for the first time and need some help verifying if what I have on hand right now is healthy fermentation or something that needs to be thrown out and started over. Photos inside. [more inside]
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]
Restaurant recommendations around downtown Montreal? [more inside]
My friend recently moved to Florida and is lamenting the lack of good cheese available in her area. Her birthday is coming up next week and I want to get her a cheese basket or a cheese of the month type thing. Help me find one? [more inside]
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?
The BBC reported today that a whipped cream canister exploded and killed a French woman. At my house we use a somewhat-similar device that makes water bubbly. Help me, seltzer engineers, to assess what we should do. [more inside]
The apples in question are organic Fujis from Washington State (I'm in the Midwest). They were bought within the last 2-3 weeks. I plan on making apple crisp. [more inside]
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]
An old co-worker once mentioned a pre-mixed jarred brand of Indian sauces (tikka masala, various curries, etc.) that was peanut and tree-nut FREE. Do you know of one? [more inside]
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?
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]
