New cat owner question. She's the kind of beautiful lithe cat who flies through the air with the greatest of ease. And then lands on things such as my food. [more inside]
I'm planning to move to a new city in the next few years which, for all its other virtues, is 3 hours away from a decent Asian grocery store. Are there any online distributors that will ship frozen Asian convenience food like dumplings and dim sum via overnight courier? Or other creative solutions for getting my fix? [more inside]
I want to use enough liquid to extract as much flavor as possible, while using as little liquid as possible. [more inside]
I bought some fermented bean curd today, brought it home, was excited to try it, had a small piece (half a cube), and then noticed that the expiration date is in 2017 -- three years ago. [more inside]
I really love Pure Leaf Sweet Tea but I would like to find a caffeine-free substitute to drink sometimes. I know they make an herbal hibiscus tea that is caffeine free but I've never tried it and am assuming it has quite a different flavor. Is there a good caffeine-free drink that is close to the flavor of sweet tea?
You bake sandwich bread regularly and are happy with the results. In particular, you bake either a whole wheat or 50/50 white/whole wheat loaf. Tell me about your process and recipe. [more inside]
My best friend has requested "something with pork" for an upcoming dinner. Normally I'd make Momofuku's bo ssam, but already have a fully cooked Tender Belly pit ham in the freezer that wants using. I can make the usual sides and sauces, but suggestions for bo ssaming up a ham OR any other killer meal with pit ham are much appreciated, thanks!!!
Yes, I love pumpkin spice. And working from home, I'm not going to Starbucks once a week for my pumpkin spice latte or chai. I'm not looking to recreate the Starbucks PSL specifically, but curious about various flavored coffees, teas, creamers, etc. that might be tasty. Difficulty level: no caffeine. [more inside]
Spending two nights in Calgary, Alberta. Looking for unique or special places to go for dinner. Very sad to see ANJU has closed its doors. In the past I have enjoyed Calcutta Cricket Club, Deane House, and Hayden Block Barbecue, but we are looking to try a couple of new places on a Friday and Saturday night. I'm pregnant, so bars are mostly out. Fine dining is fine but not necessary; looking for a date-type ambience or cool immersive experiences. My travel companion and I are both adventurous eaters and like all types of cuisines, but pregnancy seems to have turned me off red meat.
Friday, I decided to buy three big bunches of herbs: cilantro, mint and parsley. My idea was to make a tabouleh salad. Now I've washed them and I'm sitting here listening to The Splendid Table and picking off the leaves and it is a really huge mountain of herbs. So fragrant! So I'm thinking that maybe I should make more dishes from them. [more inside]
My farmer's market was a little over-generous with its tomato "canners' special" this year. What's something I can make for canning to take care of the last couple pounds? [more inside]
I want to make instant pot egg bites, and I have a couple questions. Recipe recommendations/suggestions also welcome! [more inside]
I am very quick to lunge for a sandwich or bagel at lunch but it's seeming like wheat doesn't agree with me these days. I'm going to go off it for a while and see if it's the culprit, but I need some suggestions. [more inside]
I'm pregnant and craving soda bread. The internet has many, many recipes for soda bread, as you can surely imagine. I am looking for one that someone can vouch for being reliable and very good, or one that is a famous soda bread recipe used by many. If you are some kind of expert on soda bread and can tell me what to look for in a soda bread recipe, that would be particularly fantastic. I'm going to be eating it with butter, if that matters. Definitely not as an accompaniment to any kind of stew.
Like the title says, this question is a two-parter. I'm hosting a dinner that is a bit challenging to pair with wine, so I could use some wine ideas. And then, for future situations like this, I'd love to know of good online (preferably free) resources for figuring out how to pair wines with specific meals or foods. [more inside]
My sisters and I are putting together a family cookbook and are looking for a website print service where we can upload the recipes and photos to a template. There are a few options, and I'm interested in feedback from anyone who has used the different sites. General family cookbook creation advice welcome too. Also, we are in Canada, should I be taking into consideration potential postal service shipping delays from the US?
We don't eat a lot of packaged/prepared foods but I'm about to have to juggle ALL the things and it's time for my 9 year old to start making her own meals sometimes. We have a few things she can make and she's used the microwave a bit and the toaster oven but I'd love to know what you keep on hand to get the kids to "help themselves." We are going to have a small pod of kids here somewhat regularly and I want to be able to let them do it themselves as much as possible. [more inside]
I love the way oatmeal turns out when I cook it overnight in my slow cooker, but I want to eat oatmeal for lunch. How can I make this work? [more inside]
Thanks to my friend's very enthusiastic mom, I have come into the possession of many frozen packages of mock duck (soy based, fwiw) and also several frozen packages of mock char siu. Help! [more inside]
After spending this morning researching how to bake my first ever ham, I was disappointed that my grocery store did not have a bone-in option for me to choose from. How do I cook the one I bought for split pea soup? [more inside]
