ISO cookbook with different versions (simple to complicated) of recipes

I seem to recall looking through a cookbook (probably in a bookstore) that had three versions (or so) of each recipe: one very simple, one a bit more complicated, and one even more complicated. I would like to find this cookbook again, but my google-fu and amazon-fu are failing me. [more inside]

Alternative to Onions

Wanted: Seasoning hacks, vegetable edition

I want to uplevel my vegetarian cooking. Today I bought a fantastic salad for lunch that includes kale, quinoa/pepper salad, avocado, pickled onion, beets, carrots (which I generally hate but somehow they are awesome here) and zucchini. All of it is remarkably flavorful. I can make all of these things except the pickled onion, but nothing I make tastes anything like this. What are your secret weapons for good, TASTY seasoning for grains and vegetables? [more inside]

When grilling meat - how do you measure the temperature?

When you're grilling a good size piece of meat (a large steak, a pork tenderloin) - how are you supposed to measure the temperature? I have a good thermometer (http://www.thermoworks.com/Thermapen-Mk4), but the issue is that different parts of the meat will be wildly different. E.g., with a tenderloin - the narrow ends will be 140° while the thick center is less than 100°. When a recipe calls for 140°, for example - how do you decide when that is? When the coolest part is that temperature? When the average of several different spots is that temp?

Help me make foods taste more garlicky.

I made a white bean/collard green soup in my pressure cooker yesterday. The recipe called for six cloves of garlic, and I used eight. The soup was good, but I couldn't taste the garlic. I used to make a 40-garlic chicken that I loved, but now I'm eating a vegan diet for Reasons, and I haven't figured out how to make my life more garlicky.

How do I cook a side of salmon in the oven?

DialMforMara and Canageek were at the grocery store yesterday, and the fishmonger managed to talk us into getting a side of salmon and trying a soy sauce recipe he recommended. We kept it in the fridge overnight, and then went to start cooking it, and realized that Canageek has only ever pan-fried fish before, and Mara has never cooked fish at all. Advice for oven temperature, cooking time and procedure would be appreciated. [more inside]

Help us not starve!

Short version: The family's primary cook and caregiver is in the hospital for an unknown length of time. It'll be two weeks minimum, could be a lot longer. Then she'll have a long recovery period at home. Her husband and I both theoretically can cook, though he's not very good, and I have medical complications. Between us we have to feed each other and a couple teenagers. Meal planning's fallen to me, but most of the shopping and cooking is on him. We need to survive until his wife's out of the hospital. Help? [more inside]

Do I cook or do I freeze (a cut of meat)?

I have a 2+ lb. tri tip steak that's been marinating (soy, lemon, sugar, garlic) for 24 hours and I have to concede I can't consume it by tonight. Which will make for a less mushy and sad eating experience? Do I grill it today and freeze the cooked beef for later consumption? Or do I freeze it now, uncooked, still in the marinade, and then grill it later, thawed?

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?

What party/snack food can we make with Japanese Curry mix?

We are trying to clean out our pantry in advance of a house move, and want to use as much as possible to make snacks for our goodbye-old-house party. One of the things in our pantry is a box of S&B Japanese Curry mix (medium hot). Given that a big pot of curry isn't really a good finger food, what would you suggest we make with it? (For those who are not familiar with this ingredient, it is not a powder, but more like a stew/sauce base.)

My digital kitchen scale rates "Meh."

I have a digital kitchen scale. I use it for all the things. Lately I've been doing infusions and measuring cat food. It's a little wibbly and finicky. Sometimes it doesn't register small additions of weight (and you have to press it down and let it remeasure). It's not accurate to its lowest increment (0.1 oz or 1 gram). [more inside]
