My wife is hooked on the Norwegian cooking show New Scandinavian Cooking. In this episode the host casually opens a tin can and pulls out a whole fresh lemon. [more inside]
Is this banana jam sufficiently acidified by two tablespoons of lemon juice to make it safe to preserve in a hot water bath per the recipe? Or am I flirting with death? [more inside]
Looking for recommendations for an espresso / cappuccino maker that does all the things, including also making regular coffee. [more inside]
I stupidly agreed to bake desserts for a party of 100 this Friday. I'm a decent baker, a little rusty, but never for so many people. I also need to transport the desserts using NJ Transit and MTA. I need some help getting this organized. [more inside]
Asking for a friend: My friend is currently standing next to me eating Siggi's Icelandic Style Strawberry Yogurt, which might have expired two months ago. Or a month ago, if we optimistically assume the European date format (03/04/2016). Will he die or will he be okay? How long does yogurt last past expiry date? Does it matter that it supposedly have no preservatives? Does anyone know if the dates printed on the Siggi's yogurt cups are American or European format?
I want to use transglutaminase, but only for like one meal at a time, and possibly with large gaps in between. TGM inactivates very quick upon exposure to air. Is there any way to buy extremely tiny packets, like sugar-packet-sized packets, of TGM so I could just use individual ones for one-off things? Smallest size I found online is 2 ounces, which is still far too much.
Pretty simple: If I take standard out-of-the-box cake mix, make the batter, and put it in two small cake pans instead of one standard size one, what (if anything) do I need to change about how I bake it? [more inside]
Short version: I have a 7 year old picky eater. I just found out that he is allergic to the bulk of his diet-peanuts, almonds, dairy, and wheat. Difficulty is that he is a vegetarian by choice and he gags when he has meat. Good news is that he does eat an acceptable amount of fruit and veggies. I don't know how to get enough protein in the boy. Plus, snacks are challenging. [more inside]
I love soup, but only SOME soups. I am very much a fan of a chunky soup in a broth where I can see each individual ingredient rather than blended soups (Except for butternut squash/ pumpkin or tomato soup which I do enjoy on occasion). Now I'm getting bored of the soups I have on rotation so I'm looking for more ideas of healthy soups that are chunky rather than blended. [more inside]
I will be in London this Friday and am looking for a good place to go for a good, inexpensive curry for lunch, probably in the Brick Lane area, but could be anywhere central. [more inside]
I have recently begun making homemade ranch (and I will NEVER go back to that store bought crap! My eyes have been opened!). I was wondering how long it will stay good in the fridge? [more inside]
I made a batch of turkey meatballs yesterday. They included one egg, beaten. I used an egg that, upon further reflection, may have been past its use-by date. Keep the meatballs, or toss 'em? [more inside]
So my GERD has gotten to the point where I absolutely have to ditch the Diet Coke, but what do I replace it with? [more inside]
I'm looking for a bar that serves food (or a very casual restaurant that serves booze and splits checks) suitable for around 30 people to meet in Palm Springs on a weeknight in October. Any ideas? [more inside]
My husband and I are going to rewatch the MCU movies in chronological order. To make this more fun, I'd like to have some sort of themed snack or dessert or drink to go with each of the movies. What do you recommend? [more inside]
I want to make some mini hot ham and cheese sandwiches for Teacher Appreciation Week at my kids' school. Will this recipe translate to a crock pot? Please advise me! [more inside]
I have a new cast iron pan. Long story short, I tried deglazing with white wine vinegar because I don't really know what I'm doing in the kitchen. Now there's a stain on the pan where the vinegar was. Is this fixable? I've tried scrubbing with my cleaner brush but I don't think it's helping. [more inside]
So just recently one of my favorite authentic Mexican food places in the greater Minneapolis/Saint Paul metro area closed up shop. I left me with a yearning void in my heart I've yet to fill since then. [more inside]
A friend of mine requested a cake pop cake for her birthday. How can I make such a thing? [more inside]
Home canned pickles from 2008 - yay or nay? [more inside]
