I'd like to make some chicken at home that's as close to KFC's original recipe chicken as possible. Although I know the actual recipe is not out there, I know there's a lot of discussion on what the 11 secret herbs and spices are. But is there a prevailing theory? If so, what is it? Failing that, what's your own personal recipe to try and emulate the actual recipe?

Can I make paella with whole grains? I've found a paella recipe that I love, but I generally try not to eat white rice. So I'm wondering if I can make it with spelt or farro instead. I would just experiment with the recipe, but the ingredients are kind of expensive, and I don't want to end up throwing the whole thing out because the grains didn't cook up right. Anyone cooked this sort of thing or had it in a restaurant?

I need a great appetizer recipe for the annual contest at a holiday cocktail party. There will be serious amateur foodies in attendance.

A great drink recipe is a possibility, too--last year my homemade eggnog was runner up for Best Sweet (there was no "Best Boozy" category).

I was looking at an Icelandic book of recipes from 1858 that is largely based on Danish cookbooks and in it there's a recipe for "whiskey" which is made from tea, sugar, lemonjuice and white wine. This isn't terribly similar to glühwein or glögg, but not entirely dissimilar. My question is, does anyone know why this is referred to as "whiskey" in the recipe book? Has anyone heard any kind of European mulled wine referred to by that name? Or know another name for mixed wine and tea drinks? I've put the recipe inside. [more inside]
