Irish Soda Bread recipe that isn't too dry?

I think the trick is lots of buttermilk and lots of raisins. I like my Irish soda bread to be more scone-like than bread-like, but that's just me.

Do you use your stove for storage ?

I have eighteen kitchen cabinets in my upstairs kitchen, and yet my simple 36" stove is what houses all my skillets and baking pans.

Does anybody else do this, and do you like moving the contents out of the oven every time you have to bake or broil something? Just curious.

Pancetta in larger quantities?

These guys might have it, and if they don't,
you'll definitely walk out with a purchase anyway. Check out those pics !!!

Iraqi Marga Chickpea Stew Recipe

Indian preparations are very similar for sure (in technique).
You can search for: Chana Masala, and Bombay Potatoes with Chickpeas, and then judge for yourself which culture wins out.

I eat it my way

I don't chew gum any more, but I did at one time.

Years ago as I was walking into a store, a black teenage boy with headphones on was singing out loud to himself. He sounded like he was having a good time, so I paused a second to overhear the lyrics. The lyrics went like this: "I put bubble gum on my ass because I like to pop shit".

To this day, I chuckle when I recall that day ... (and those lyrics).

Sliced beef heart - best way to cook

This Heart Gravy recipe has a rather interesting ingredient list.
I think it's an acquired taste though ... http://livewellnetwork.com/Lets-Dish/...

I need help making the perfect omelet

Yep, the saying goes something like ...
"Take them off (the fire) a minute before the way you like them".

People overcook their eggs.

chicken patties

I guess what you're talking about is chicken "burgers". Patties are a bit different, plus they have breaded exteriors. Chicken burgers can be reshaped into whatever you want: meatballs, meatloaf, chili, burgers, etc. You can make a Juicy Lucy for your SIL, but make sure that the burger is *fully* cooked. If he likes cheese, he might actually like this. https://video.search.yahoo.com/video/... (You can add some plain yogurt to the meat for moistness if you think it's gonna be too dry).

menu help for turkey cutlets

No asiago in your cutlet recipe?

Fingerling potatoes, roasted carrots, and salad greens would be a fine meal.

Flan 911 help!

Taste it to see if it's burnt.
If it tastes off to you, then you have to start over.

pulled chicken sandwiches

IMO, corn tortillas or Portuguese rolls would be best.

Your husband's digestive system can double as a wood chipper any day.

What veggies are low carbers indulging in this winter?

I like the longer thin eggplants also, and I think
they're a lot quicker to prep too.

Cool discoveries in Indian/Pakistani food stores? Tell us

Wow, the Haldiram Khata Meeta snack mix uses sago and rice flakes.
I can't say that I've had sago (or sago palms) before.

>>'Eggplant is delicious sauteed with a touch of seeame oil and soy sauce'. <<

Do you use globe eggplants for this recipe? And what size do you slice yours?

What veggies are low carbers indulging in this winter?

*THIN* asparagus is a great vegetable. If you eat uncooked asparagus you'll find that it has a surprising sweetness to it. Use it alone in a salad or make a soup with it, etc.

Napa cabbage comes out great with chicken soup and short grain brown rice. It makes a very hearty one pot meal. (Not very low carb because of the rice).

I like making mashed yucca in place of mashed potatoes. Boil the yucca, drain, mash, add garlic salt, dried oregano and EVOO. (Not low carb, but less than potatoes).

I eat it my way

I like my burgers blackened, and I almost always deconstruct my burger and eat it with a knife and fork.

Egg rolls must be eaten with duck sauce on *every* bite.

I pair thinned Wolf's canned chili with farfalle pasta and I eat it where I dunk two bows into the chili at a time. It's just the way I like it, I guess.

fried tofu

I seldom prepare any Chinese food at home.
For the record, I was speaking primarily about take-out.

I like mine with a well prepared garlic sauce and some veggies.

Do you make dining decisions based on coupons or discounts?

During college, friends and I used the Entertainment Book "Dining Card" when we dined out. We found that *many* times our dining decisions were based on which restaurant gave us the "best bang for our buck". So in response to the OP ... Yes, we were very conscious of discounts (especially at that time) and we went where they offered us the greatest benefit.

Nowadays, I don't use any dining discounts at all (No Groupon, Restaurant.com, or RW deals). I usually just pay what they want and I'm hopeful that the food is always good.

Welcome back Nick Stellino?

I don't recall when Nick Stellino made his debut,
but I do remember that he would always say, "Ok. Let's snop into action".

Lemon-Cranberry Muffins

Steel cut oats, crushed candy canes, chopped peanuts, shredded coconut ... ANY of
these will give you some texture. You might want to try cream of wheat and see how that works too. https://images.search.yahoo.com/image...

When the vibe of the place just doesn't feel right

For really good pho, I would have tolerated that guy and I might have asked him to chiffonade my basil real quick.

Got a new pizza stone. What else can I use it for?

Always aim for a crispy bottom on your arepas.

I fry my arepas first and then I finish them in the oven with a quick bake. An arepa pizza sounds so delicious to me. I really hope you try it.

Got a new pizza stone. What else can I use it for?

Wow, a large arepa pizza.
And it looks pretty good too!
