silicone mold at the thrift store today. My guess is it's for making some sort of fruit-filled baked dessert. I'm imagining something similar to a strawberry shortcake. What is it for? [more inside]

My grandfather grew up an orphan around the turn of the century and remained very poor as long as I knew him. He made us something called "hot ice cream". I think it had milk, and vanilla, food coloring and corn starch.
I have googled but am not getting very far. Can anyone help with this recipe?

Help me organize a food contest for professional cooks! The goal is to gather a number of regional cooking professionals and have them cook their version of a regional favorite food (already predetermined.) There would be a few celebrity judges and a few people who are pretty knowledgeable about food. The contest would be public and there would be a few recipes.
How would you suggest this be done? What should be included? What should be avoided?

So it's rhubarb season and I've finally managed to buy a big batch, yay! I love
the stuff and have been waiting for this all year. I usually make crumbles/stews, but am looking to push the boat out a little more this time to get the most out of it, finding new recipes and also ways to preserve for when it's no longer around (jams, in alcohol, freezing?). What are your favourite recipes and what other things have you found pair well with it? Have you ever made booze with rhubarb? I'd be grateful for any tips, and thank you in advance!

I'd like to start cooking meals for myself more often, but I've been overwhelmed by the number of books and websites online.
Does someone know a good place to find recipes for beginner chefs, whether it be at a premium or not? Eating healthy is a priority for me as well.

I'm participating in a Thanksgiving potluck this weekend. I've been assigned a corn based dish - possibly a casserole of some sort. I'm not a good cook, but can manage simple things. Does anyone have any favorite corn based recipes that are more involved than heating up frozen or canned veggies? [more inside]

I'm looking for some good recipes for gluten-free and sugar-free cakes or similar desserts to make and bring to my university department's weekly cake devouring event. I'm an American in the UK, if that's at all relevant.

When I lived in France, I used to make a super easy, delicious cake for the kids that involved using a container of yogurt and then measuring all the other ingredients using that container of yogurt. I've totally forgotten how to make this now. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where to find a recipe?
