I like doing things the hard way.

I want to make tamales. From scratch. Including and especially the masa. My understanding is that NY Mexican food and tamales are not good because everyone uses bagged masa and apparently even the fancy restaurants use this. I want fresh masa and it seems that I can find everything I need online. [more inside]

Something like concrete, but lighter.

Okay here's what I want to do. I have a plastic bin. I want to tilt it on a 45 degree angle, and fill the bottom corner with [insert substance here]. This substance would then dry, and I would repeat the process on the other side of my plastic bin. When both sides are dry, I would have a homemade sluiceway in the bottom of the bin that would be able to effectively funnel liquid out through a spout I would put in the bottom of the bin. That's what I want to do. I just don't know what would be a good substance to accomplish this. Ideally it would be light (concrete would be a pain), would adhere to the plastic bin, not absorb moisture and rot, and dry in a reasonable amount of time. I'm also open to suggestions that would approach this from a different approach.

What non-food consumables can I make for holiday gifts?

I want to make lots of neat little gifts to give friends for Christmas. I'd like these gifts to be useable, elegant, consumable, and grown-up (not decorative, artsy-fartsy crafty crap). My recipients are Pragmatic New Englanders, and would be irked receiving potpourri, eye pillows, embroidered towels, door-hangings, pine-cone-bird feeders, or anything of that ilk. Hence: consumables. In the past I've had past successes making figgy pudding with brandy butter and a collection of homemade ketchups, relishes, mustards, and chutneys, but this year I want to move out of the kitchen. Blow me away with millions of amazing little home-made gift suggestions. [more inside]

Yes, I cook for my dog. How can I do it better?

I'd like nutritional advice for homemade dog food and maybe treats, using easy-to-find ingredients. I haven't been able to find high quality commercial dog food where I live, so I make most of her food myself, but I would like to make her homemade food as healthy as I possibly can with the resources I have, which are somewhat limited. Current routine, and many(!) more details inside. [more inside]

Feeding My Cats Homemade Raw Meat Diet - Good Idea?

I want to make my own homemade, raw meat (chicken and rabbit) cat food. My girlfriend thinks it's a bad idea. Almost everything I can find on the interwebs suggest that feeding a cat a BARF (biologically appropriate raw food) diet is healthy for the cat. This wiki suggests that there is no scientific evidence pointing to a clear resolution - in the references section there are some vets arguing one way or the other, but nothing concrete. Has anyone been there, done that, or have any other advice? [more inside]

Dog Treats

My dog loves dried sweet potato chews. They go for $20 a bag in the pet store even though the only ingredients are potatoes. It must be that I can make them at home for the cost of a potato.
