How do you chew a kola nut? I'm a bit of a food adventurer and I was in an African grocery this morning and at the counter the had a jar full of these. I asked the guy what they were and he told me they're kola nuts and you chew them. So I bought a bag full and headed out to the car and looked up how to chew them and found this, but it doesn't make any sense. [more inside]

I find myself unexpectedly responsible for cooking for five on Tuesday. My problem is that I have a very long working day on Tuesday, and am not home until one hour before the dinner starts. I am working at home tomorrow, so I can prepare things Monday evening. I have a typical Hong Kong kitchen-- this means, no oven, no crock pot. I have two burners and a rice cooker. Two of the guests are ovo-lacto vegetarian. I am an indifferent cook. Help? Recipe suggestions appreciated.

I am making yogurt in an Instant Pot. The entire cycle is 8 hours for a half-gallon of milk plus starter, which is held at 115F the whole time.

I want to make frosted decorated cookies as favors for my baby's first birthday. I need a frosting recipe that will dry on the cookies so that I can package them in cellophane favor bags and the frosting won't smear. My dream cookie is a cut-out number one with a smooth frosting in one color and a piped border in another color. I don't have time to experiment (it's not like I knew he'd be turning one next month) so I'm hoping someone here has a no-fail, foolproof go-to recipe.

I just finished watching Midnight Diner -Tokyo Stories on Netflix and I loved it. What are other books, TV shows, and movies about Japanese diners?
