Simple online calorie diary that let's me just add numbers?

I'd like an online calorie diary that is simple, let's me just add the calorie numbers that I already know for a meal instead of making me search for each item. And then keep track of how I am meeting pre-determined goals. [more inside]

Specific sorts of salads

I'd love to improve my range of salads (or other things involving vegetables) to bring to work, but I'm finding just searching for recipes tricky because of a combination of foods I don't eat, a nut-free workplace, and the fact I live alone (so don't necessarily go through more delicate ingredients before they go bad.) I'd love your suggestions for things to try: special snowflake details inside. Recommendations for cookbooks, websites, etc. to mine also very welcome. [more inside]

Can we eat it: colorful udon edition

We recently bought udon with a "use by" date of "May 12 16," except one has some weird orange spots (looks like colorful flavoring accidentally included from something else, and the second instance of weird purple-like tint and possibly a bit of slimy consistency. Here's a photo, with the areas in question circled for emphasis. Can we eat it, eat around it, or should we chuck it? [more inside]

Suggestions for food I can take to patient in long-term care?

Please give me suggestions for food I can take to a bedridden dialysis patient for whom food just doesn’t taste good. They are at dialysis three times a week and had a catastrophic event a few months ago. They are in a convalescent facility for the long-term. The food is ok at the best of times and too bland most of the time. I sympathize because I cannot eat food that doesn’t taste good to me either. However, they have to eat SOMETHING!! What could we take in the morning for them to eat throughout the day? We are trying to stay away from processed food and overly salted food. Some cooking the night before might be ok; some soups might be ok. I am trying to come up with a number of ideas to keep things interesting for the long-term. Their dietary restrictions are modest at this point--low-to-no salt; low potassium; low sugar. Thank you for your time!

Tasty kabocha squash is DRY. How do I use this?

Hokkaido variety kabocha squash. I cut it in chunks and steamed it -- with the intention of eating it plain. It has lovely sweet chestnut flavor. But so dry and crumbley, like stale cake. Any suggestions on how I can repurpose this steamed squash? If I make soup, will the dry crumbles melt into the broth and make a smooth soup? Or I could mix it with mashed sweet potatoes. But again, I hope for a smooth texture without dry crumbles. Tools: I have only a standard blender. And a manual potato masher.

Going from "improvisational cook" to "calorie counting."

I do all of the cooking in our house. Most of the time I'm just throwing meals together with what's on sale or in the fridge rather than following A Recipe, and I'd like to keep working that way if possible. My partner wants to start counting calories, and I want to start providing her with useful data. I think I get the basic idea of how to make this work (weigh stuff before you put it in the pot, write down amounts, do math) but I'd love any specific tips or tricks from people who have made this transition themselves.

Leftovers That Don't Feel Like Leftovers

Looking for recipes or techniques that turn fully cooked leftovers into completely different dishes - like turning risotto into arancini, thickening a soup into pasta sauce, or turning roast mushrooms into pate. Not looking for " make a sandwhich/taco" etc. Looking for things where you basically need a completed other dish before you start.

Delicious vegan Thai sauce recipes

My family is having a Thai-themed second Thanksgiving meal tomorrow. We have people with a lot of dietary restrictions so we are trying to make tasty sauces that everyone can eat, which can be put on meat/veggies/tofu as needed. We have a good red curry and peanut sauce but other sauce recipe suggestions would be great. Should be vegan. Thank you!

Fixing a crockpot meal.

I made took a simple chicken and noodles recipe and doctored it up a little bit with onions, celery, shallots, and carrots. Otherwise the same recipe (I added a like 2 ounces more broth than they called for, and cream of mushroom instead of chicken). I'm not sure what happened, but the result in my crock pot with ~2 hours remaining is very, very soupy, and doesn't look right at all. Is there anything I could do to salvage this and make it creamy?

Give me your duck leg recipes...

I have a number of duck legs in the fridge, which need using over the next few days. Please suggest recipes. I don't need basic cooking instructions, just your best ways with duck legs. I don't particularly want to go down the confit route, as I don't have much storage space in this flat, and there doesn't seem much point if I don't let then mature. But if you think I'm insane to pass up the chance I'm sure you'll let me know. Thanks!
