dutch oven? stock pot? or pressure cooker? [more inside]
For health reasons, my family needs to switch to a no-starch, no-sugar diet. Fats are okay, but it's not actually keto. I am having a really hard time figuring out what to cook. Please, if you have heard of this diet, bestow your best recipes upon me!
What it says on the tin- I received a slow cooker just before Christmas and am looking for a cookbook to use with it. I would like it to contain a variety of recipes- risottos, meat and vegetables, pasta whatever. I have never used a slow cooker before and am an intermediate cook (I have basic skills but something with techniques in it would not be wasted). Most importantly recipes should be tasty!!
I'm looking for cook-the whole meal-all-at-once instant pot recipes. Difficulty level: not stews/soups/casseroles. Either pasta dishes, rice dishes (but not risotto), or meat with side that can all be cooked at once and all in the instant pot. [more inside]
I am trying to make my own spicy paste from Sichuan Peppercorns, for a loved one who is off of nightshades (which include tomatoes and chili peppers). I love Chinese Ma La sauce (the main ingredient in Ma Po Tofu aka "Granny's Spicy Bean Curd") but it has both of those ingredients. My first thought is just to grind up some Sichuan Peppercorns (aka hua chiao, prickly ash, Zanthoxylum) and mash them into some oil. But that doesn't seem quite right. What about aquafaba (the liquid in a can of beans)? Other suggestions?
I bought some tea a while ago from a local tea shop that sort of gave the impression that they make their own tea blends, but when I was trying to buy some more online I found that in fact a bunch of places carry what seems to be exactly the same tea with different names. Which is fine, whatever, business is business! But who actually makes this tea? [more inside]
Instant Pot says any oven safe container. Some people use Pyrex 7 cup storage containers and even Pyrex mixing bowls. I have read somewhere that Pyrex refuses to ok it. Others are using stainless steel Tiffin type containers or mixing bowls or aluminum cake pans. What do you use? And do you use an aluminum foil band to remove the pot or a silicone lifter or a pot holder? [more inside]
I accidentally left food in my InstantPot for an unspecified amount of time and I am freaking out on whether I should use it or not. Is it safe or don't even bother? [more inside]
I have gone back and forth on this question for a while now, and I will sometimes buy organic for fruits or veggies that are eaten with the peel/skin kept on, but through my research, I've recently been exposed to the idea that there's actually more pesticides on organic produce and that it's all a marketing scam. And then of course there are others who are still staunch defenders of organic and non-GMO. Have you found any reliable sources that have influenced you to either buy organic or not?
Would you notice movement inside of you if you swallowed a handful of Mexican jumping beans? [more inside]
What is your favorite recipe or book of recipes for scratchmaking seitan and/or summoning the Dark Lord? I'd love to hear about other kinds of fake meat/demons. Also, suggestions for cooking with fake meat, since I'm new to all this. [more inside]

You know those threads at Christmastime about the best cookie recipes? Now for muffins. [more inside]
I know this can be done, but the Google results I get when I try to research a recipe are causing me to pressure cook my own brain with rage. Can you outline the process for me, or link me to a recipe that isn't an incoherent soup of SEO garbage? [more inside]
It's finally my turn to ask a silly food question. I soaked black beans overnight, cooked them in the morning, drained and transferred them to another bowl, and promptly forget the bowl on the counter (in my chilly kitchen) for 12 hours. [more inside]
I bought a quarter of a heritage breed hog, so this is the first of what no doubt will be several questions on what to do with the various cuts. I want to start with the shoulder. Please point me to your most delicious recipes.
Do you have a delicious recipe for greek giant (gigantes) beans in tomato sauce? My kids love them from our local restaurant and I’d love to make them at home.
I'm on two medications that 1. almost eliminate feelings of hunger until after I get home from work and 2. make me slightly queasy. As a result, I keep skipping lunch, which is bad. Recommendations for stuff I can eat? [more inside]
On this cold winter's day, I am really craving a warm and hearty stew. I'd prefer beef, but I've never made a chicken stew before, so I am open to that. However, I cannot seem to find an Instant Pot beef stew recipe that looks appealing. Are there any great beef stew recipes that you guys can suggest? [more inside]
