  • I ate Tri-Tip Beef for first time. What Hve I Bn Missing?

    I am semi-retired. Meaning that I still work part time. I don't have to, but I do mainly to stay involved with other people's lives and as a healthy distraction. My job as a caregiver for disabled adults means I make them dinner, dispense medications, listen to concerns, etc. Yesterday, there was a surprise on the menu; Tri-Tip Steak. Of course I'd heard of it, but I had never eaten any. At about $13.00 a pound, my family would never have been buying it years ago, even when adjusted for inflation. Most of the staff know that I like to...

    I posted recipes yesterday for chocolate pudding cake, which is by its nature eggless. One person freepmailed and told me that a young relative is highly allergice to eggs and she was very happy to have that recipes. So, I figured that a thread with many eggless recipes may be useful to people with egg allergies, or those cooking for people with such allergies. Observant Hindus also do not eat eggs, and then of course there are vegetarians who for various reasons may not eat eggs. So, in honor of the young relative who is highly allergic to eggs, here...

    This is probably the easiest way to make a killer batch of refried beans without spending a couple hours cooking the beans.If you want to read about cooking up some beans from scratch see our Frijoles de Olla post.But this version starts with cooked beans — and you can get away with using a can of store-bought beans because you’re loading them up with authentic flavors.How to Make Refried Beans Before we get to the recipe, it’s worth heading back in time to see what refried beans were like a few hundred years ago…Pot beans get mashed up and cooked in some fat,...

  • Austin firefighters respond to blazes caused by spontaneous combustion of tortilla chips

    07/25/2018 8:37:07 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 31 replies
    It happened July 12 at 6110 Trade Center Drive. AFD says the factory was trying out a new blend of chips that "didn't work out so well." That fire was contained to the exterior of the building, and ignited several other boxes of food waste. Then, three days later, additional boxes of the same tortilla chips spontaneously ignited again. Firefighters contained that fire and drowned all of the other boxes that had yet to catch fire.

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

    Today ^ | June 1, 2018 | Megan O. Steintrager
    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.

I took a glass 13x9 pan,...
  • Study finds association between eating HOT PEPPERS and DECREASED MORTALITY

    01/16/2017 2:33:16 PM PST · by Tilted Irish Kilt · 91 replies ^ | 1/13/17 | N/A
    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...
