dried fava bean recipes

I have impulse-purchased some dried fava beans from Bob's Red Mill and I'm looking for good recipes to make later this week. After Googling I'm feeling drawn to this recipe for Bessara but I'm interested in any other recommendations! I've only ever made fava beans fresh before.

Can I Eat These Bagels?

Baked some delicious bagels. Realized there was a small plastic item w/ a small battery in it that melted on the bottom of the oven. It did not touch the bagels but there were fumes. Can we eat these delicious bagels? (I already ate half of one. It was delicious.).

Can I eat this plate of beans?

I cooked some black beans last weekend and froze them. Yesterday, I let them thaw in a ziplock bag on the counter all day. I moved them to the fridge when I realized they'd been at room temp for "awhile" (maybe around 6 pm?). They've been in the fridge overnight. No bad smell, taste fine. Can I boil them in a soup and eat them?

Why does butter get gross in my fridge?

No matter how I store an open stick butter or where I put it in my fridge, it gets a funky smell/taste (maybe kinda pungent oniony?). I've tried Ziploc bags and plastic wrap and Tupperware, but it seems to happen regardless--sometimes the same goes for blocks of cheese. The butter is usually either Kroger brand or Land O' Lakes. Any ideas/fixes?

Friendsgiving, but make it sharing your soul like a bowl of Cheetos

I really love throwing a Friendsgiving potluck for a group of local friends every year, and I don't want to lose the tradition to covid. But a lot of people (including me) are pretty burned out on freeform Zoom socializing, so I'm thinking of trying something still virtual but with a little more structure. Help me make this enjoyable and a little special, and not a fiasco of awkwardness. [more inside]

Can I Eat This? Refrigerated, unopened raw bacon edition

3 weeks ago, I bought a vacuum-sealed package of raw, hardwood smoked bacon, put in my fridge and proceeded to immediately forget about it. I just pulled it out. It says "Use by November 22" and does not smell (I didn't open it yet). Is this safe to eat? When I google, the Internet says that bacon does not last in the fridge for more than 1 week or so, but the package says "Nov. 22". If I open it and it doesn't smell bad, am I good?

Half-remembered quote about cooking

I recently read a quote and am trying to find it again. I think it was by a famous chef? Paraphrased, it said "Don't be afraid to use a lot of pots and pans during cooking". Something about how saving on the washing up can ruin a good dish. Any ideas?

Please help me make Pot Roast in InstantPot without all the ingredients

I have never made a pot roast, and never used an InstantPot. I was gifted one and decided to make pot roast, only to find that the recipes all have more ingredients than what is available to me. I'm sure it can be made with what I have but I don't know how to adjust the liquid ingredients and how to increase the salt and pepper for lack of other spices. I have a 3 pound chuck roast, russett potatoes, whole fresh carrotts, chicken bone broth, kosher salt, black pepper (whole, in a pepper mill), crushed garlic and olive oil. [more inside]
