What kind of cookie sheet should I use for baking bread?

I just baked my first loaf of bread (challah). It came out pretty close to perfect, but the bottom of the bread was way too dark. It seems to me that the cookie sheet is the problem. (I used an aluminum cookie sheet and parchment paper.) I would like to try a different sheet next time. What kind should I buy?

Stewing over the change in season

It's September, and (this morning, at least) it feels like fall is on its way. There's nothing I like more as the weather gets colder than a hearty bowl of stew. Can you suggest some delicious stews I might not have tried before? [more inside]

Help me find my daily grind

I am looking for a new pepper mill, but an Amazon search produces an overwhelming 800 results and very few customer reviews. So I turn to you, my Metafilter test market. I use the mill often enough that Target's selection just isn't cutting it anymore, but I don't know which models and brands offer the most bang for my buck. And, aren't Peugeots cars? It should be manual (not electric), it should have a variable grind, a heft in the hand, and a steel or red finish (though I prefer function over form). Tell me if you've got a great grinder. Thanks in advance everybody!

Another "Can I Eat This" Query

Can I marinate beef past the sell-by date? I've bought a piece of chuck pot roast and just made the marinade for Mark Bittman's Vinegar-Marinated Pot Roast recipe. Bittman's recipe suggest marinating the meat for up to 3 days; the date on the package comes due is in two. Will the marinade, made up primarily of wine and vinegar, allow the meat to last past the date (and I have no idea if it's a sell-by or serve-by date - I'm recently eating beef again after about a 13 year hiatus), or should I plan on cooking this tomorrow? Ideally, I'd like to cook this on Thursday, but I don't want to kill my family.

Pickles help

Dill ripens ...well ... now, in Montana. Cucumbers ripen in about 3 weeks to a month. Dill pickles are better with fresh dill, but the dill will have gone to seed. Hep? Do I dry or freeze the dill? Googly searches say use fresh ... like that's any help. Ideers?

Cookbook suggestions for cooking with in season fruits and veggies

What is a good cookbook for fresh cooking? I'm looking for a cookbook that takes in-season fruits and veggies and prepares them in a way where their natural flavors come through. I don't want anything heavy like fried foods or so drenched in sugar it will make my teeth hurt. Any ideas? I was looking at How to Pick a Peach by Russ Parsons but wanted to see if there is anything else better out there before I purchased it. Thanks :)

At-Home Cooking Classes in Chicago?

A good friend is getting married September 1st and I'm interested in buying for her and the Mr. a certificate for an at-home cooking lesson for the two of them--they've taken cooking classes before and dug them so I thought it might be fun for them to do it at home in their new place with their new stuff. We/they live in Chicago--does anybody have any recommendations for places? I've come up with a few on Google but I want to see if anyone's had any personal experience with this since it seems a lot of it would depend on good customer service. thanks!

How do I make saba maki at home?

My friends and I have recently begun experimenting with making maki at home. My favorite sushi/sashimi has always been saba, but I can't find any DIY recipes online that call for mackerel. Has anyone had any success with this kind of fish at home? I'd like to use fresh/frozen fillets, but I'm open to to the canned kind as well as it is seems fairly easy to come by. I'm also interested in any sort of non-sushi uses for the canned variety (preferably cheap ones as I am a student). I want to give it a go, but have no experience with this ingredient. What makes it taste good?

How'd they cook that egg?

How'd they cook that egg? I ordered a "fried egg, over hard," and was presented with a normal fried egg but with what looked to be the yolk removed. There wasn't a hole in the egg, but rather just the skin of the yolk laying flacid over where one would normally see yellow. Upon further inspection, the yolk was actually "sandwiched" between the two cooked sides (top side and bottom side) of the egg white surrounding the yolk hole. It wasn't a fluke, as I got two eggs like this with my order. What is this type of egg called and how'd they do that?

Chris Kimball's Vermont

If you read Cook's Illustrated magazine, you'll see that the editor, Christopher Kimball, is always going on about the small town in Vermont he (sometimes) lives in. I don't want to turn this into a forum for pro/anti-Chris Kimball comments, but I was simply curious if anyone knows what town it is he's always talking about?

What foods to pair with whiskey?

I'm having a whiskey party tonight. There will be a mix of scotches, bourbons, and other whiskeys, single-malt and blended. It will not be a dinner party but I'd like to provide some hors d'oeuvres and possibly desserts. I've heard sushi is good with whiskey so I thought lox might work, and this Honey and Whiskey ice cream looks good, but does anyone have any other ideas?
