  • 13 cooking tips and tricks for making the juiciest, tastiest pork chops

    If you've ever tried (and failed) to cook the juiciest, best tasting pork chops, the first thing you need to do is give up any notions you might have about pork being "the other white meat," as it was marketed in the fat-phobic 1980s. "To me, a lean pork chop is the saddest possible thing," Samin Nosrat, cooking teacher and author of the James Beard Award-winning cookbook "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking," told TODAY Food. "The challenge of those tender cuts [like pork chops] is retaining that tenderness after you cook them," Nosrat explained. "In...

    It’s Monday. It’s December. I believe that calls for recipes. I saw a couple of teases in the comments over the weekend, such as 3XLady’s pictures of Potato Candy – candy? With potatoes? We need a recipe! And MichellenotTHATone was bragging about making white chocolate popcorn – White. Chocolate. Popcorn.!! Recipe please!For my part I want to harken back to our discussion on the November 21 ham and cheese sliders recipe post. Somebody commented that they are called “funeral sandwiches” in the South and I responded that in Utah the ubiquitous cheesy potato casserole was known as “funeral potatoes.” Behold,...

    ESCANABA — A highlight of the annual Ladies’ Day at the Upper Peninsula State Fair is the recipe contest. This year, entrants had to create dishes featuring potatoes. The judges chose winners based on taste, appearance, and creativity, along with clarity of the recipe. Taking home the top prize with her sweet potato casserole was Linda Romps. Second place was awarded to Joanne King for her red picnic basket potato salad. Coming in third place was Becky Kuehl, who created a pumpkin sweet potato cheesecake. The winning recipes will be published in the Ladies’ Day Cookbook for the 2018 Upper...

    The laborious steps mean fewer home-cooks are making Chinese rice dumplings come the annual season. But those who do, are improvising on the ‘original’ recipes handed down. The third in a series on vanishing family recipes.It’s 5am and the neighbourhood is fast asleep, but 68-year-old Koh Peck Hiang is already bustling about her kitchen. The smell of garlic and five-spice powder fills the air as she begins stir-frying glutinous rice that has been soaking in water since 3am. The long toil ahead in the kitchen is an annual ritual for the homemaker, whose Chinese rice dumplings or bak chang are...

    Now, I’ll be totally honest with you – I don’t even know what Shrimp Creole is. So I looked it up… Shrimp creole is a dish of Louisiana Creole origin, consisting of cooked shrimp in a mixture of whole or diced tomatoes, the Holy trinity of onion, celery and bell pepper, spiced with hot pepper sauce and/or cayenne-based seasoning, and served over steamed or boiled white rice Okay, so this stuff is eaten with rice. Makes sense, anybody interested in storing long-term food will certainly have a sack of rice or ten.

    Hi to all! This is the weekly cooking thread for this weekend, and I am one of the substitutes for Jamestown1630. I'm sorry I didn't start yesterday, but, well, how do I say this?? I forgot. And I am sorry. But here we are. What is going on in your kitchens this week? There are a lot of sports on TV this weekend so I decided to make a bunch of fried chicken, great to eat right out of the fryer, but also good cold. I bought a bunch of winglets and some drumsticks. I took a glass 13x9 pan,...
  • Study finds association between eating HOT PEPPERS and DECREASED MORTALITY

    Like spicy food? If so, you might live longer, say researchers at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont, who found that consumption of hot red chili peppers is associated with a 13 percent reduction in total mortality - primarily in deaths due to heart disease or stroke—in a large prospective study. Going back for centuries, peppers and spices have been thought to be beneficial in the treatment of diseases, but only one other study—conducted in China and published in 2015 - has previously examined chili pepper consumption and its association with mortality. This new study corroborates...

    When we were married, one of our wedding gifts was a beautiful, copper ‘beehive’ Oster blender. (I was collecting 'everything copper' back then, and my copper Oster toaster is still going strong, and will probably last my lifetime.) The blender has also been a great tool and lasted a long time, but has been on its last legs recently; and my husband decided a while back that he wanted a Breville as soon as we were ready to budget it. (I think he had seen it highly rated by America’s Test Kitchen.) We happened to be in an ‘off-price’ department...

    Eggs! I enjoy a cheese souffle, but I don't always enjoy the work of it. This 'Sturdy Souffle' is adapted from the 1979 edition of the Fanny Farmer Cookbook, and cuts down on the work - no separating or separate beating of eggs. It won't rise as high and light, but doesn't fall as flat as a 'regular' souffle. Sturdy Souffle 4 T. butter (and some to grease the dish) 1/4 cup flour 1 cup hot milk Pinch of salt Pinch of cayenne pepper 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (plus more to sprinkle the baking dish; or just MORE in...
  • Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats

    06/19/2015 8:10:41 AM PDT · by Altariel · 112 replies
    Here are five (mostly) scientific reasons why dogs trump cats. 1. Exercise motivation While dogs demand physical and recreational activity, all cats demand is food and a comfy sofa to sleep on all day. Great job being a role model, Felix! **** 2. Give the elderly a purpose Pets are wonderful stress relievers for people of all ages, but the elderly in particular benefit from owning a dog. **** 3. Sniff Out Cancer Cats have an attuned sense of smell, but they're difficult to train. The top cats also can't match the top dogs nose for nose. **** 4. Smarter...

    I don't think there are any strict vegetarians in my current personal circle, but there are always some people with food restrictions whom we have to consider whenever we give or contribute to a big party. I work in an 'ethnically diverse' environment with many people who don't eat 'mainstream', ranging from Jews and Muslims who don't eat pork, to a Hindu who doesn't eat beef OR pork; the occasional vegetarians of varying commitment; and (sigh) one 'raw-foodist'. (Just buy a pineapple for that one.) Having been largely vegetarian for the first part of my own adult life - and...
