[RecipeFilter] Like muffins, but not as crumbly

I'm looking for breakfast food/snack that is flour-based, with apples (I have a lot of apples to use up), easy to prepare in advance (the night before) that would be less crumbly than muffins. More like pancakes or bread in texture. [more inside]

Is/can a cinnamon roll also/also be a donut?

Three friends have been arguing this out, to no firm conclusion. The strongest argument against is that a cinnamon roll is (usually) baked and a donut is (usually) fried. But there are exceptions, as well as crossover versions [1][2][3]. To complicate, cinnamon rolls can be made from donut dough. Can they be the same, or not (either logically, or using empirical evidence)? Assume donut (US) = doughnut (UK).

Can I eat it? plate of beans edition

What is there to know about beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc., sprouting, and food safety? Ever since I read about how pinto beans contain a toxin that only breaks down if you cook them at high enough temps, I've been wondering if there's more I'm missing and kinda paranoid about beans. In particular, can I eat these chickpeas that sprouted while soaking them, even if I'm pregnant? [more inside]

Barristas, Hope Me! How should I ask for a cappuccino in the US?

Ordering a cappuccino on the east coast of the US often results in delivery of a large mug with a small/medium-sized latte with a thin layer of foam on the top. What I really want is a double shot of espresso, with the same amount of hot milk on top, and some foam on top of that; and that's what I often ask for. For some reason, when I explain this, people can get upset, and give me the medium-sized latte. What am I doing wrong? How can I ask for a cappuccino and get what I want? Cheers!

Cooking classes for the single middle aged man?

I know it's not much, but I can cook pasta, grill chicken breast, make scrambled eggs, etc. I'd like to start cooking at home more often and eating a bit healthier to save on money and get in better shape. Is there a good place in Denver to take not too expensive cooking classes for a single middle aged guy that would help me go from beginner to intermediate level skills? Thanks!

Huge Hunk of Meat

I work in a residential facility for women, and we get a lot of donated food. Our most recent haul includes a 17.5 pound whole, boneless beef sirloin. It's just a huge slab of cow - it retailed for $116, for crying out loud. How on earth do we cook this thing? [more inside]

Egg white protein powder: recommendations for samples

As a whey-hater, and a vegan-plant-protein-hater, I'm anxious to try egg-based protein powder. But I don't want to buy a giant canister for $40. I want to buy a small canister for $10 or so. a) Am I likely to like it ok, and b) any sources for small sample type containers?

Pleasurable Dining Out With Extensive Dietary Restrictions

I'm an enthusiastic omnivore living in a well-known food city. I enjoy dining out for relaxation, learning about new foods and cooking techniques, and celebrating special occasions and milestones. However, my girlfriend follows a very limited diet for health reasons. This makes dining out challenging and even if the food can be made according to her diet, the result is often not that interesting or tasty. Is there a way we can make eating out genuinely pleasurable for both of us, or do I resign myself to doing most of my restaurant dining alone or with friends? [more inside]

Good bars in Philly for watching midterm results?

I'm looking for a bar in Philadelphia to watch midterm results tomorrow. Criteria: not too loud/boisterous, will be guaranteed to have midterm coverage on, no Republicans (it's Philly so pretty safe on this one but you never know.) I'm in South Philly so someplace local would be ideal but will travel (via public transit) if necessary. Any tips for me? I haven't had much luck searching online. Thanks in advance!
