homemade sausages

Exactly this. I taste test when making breakfast and sweet Italian sausage. I try to let it rest beforehand a bit too.

Theeey're baaack!

Maybe an early warning system can be devised to warn citizens of this country about the imminent return of ABC in the media.

Jim Cantore can report from the field.

what do you cook your pancakes on?

Also, it has sides which (like mine) is great for pushing against for lifting hashbrowns, for example. I'm just enough of a klutz that I like that extra "safety zone."

The dogs hate that feature.

'Are you that stupid?' Mill Street Bistro, the finest episode in the history of reality television

This was posted just today on this website. Interesting "play-by-play" on one episode of Kitchen Nightmares.

Cardamom. That's something my mother (with a lot of her family back in Finland) would do. I'll have to give it a try. She added it to a lot of other dishes, but not pancakes. Thanks, sounds good!

Draining pasta?

I drain the pasta based on its shape. Strands of angel hair, linguine, etc. I use something like this model:

No colander to wash out.

For shaped pasta, I use a pasta scoop and put the pasta directly in the sauce's pan.

what do you cook your pancakes on?

I use my c/s pan when I make just a few pancakes. Super crisp and buttery.

I'll be using the c/s crepe pan this week for a batch of chicken and mushroom crepes. Nothing works as well.

what do you cook your pancakes on?

It straddles the front high heat burner and the back medium heat one. I eyeball the flames to make sure they're pretty much even with output. The pans base metal is aluminum, so it heats quickly and doesn't require much more than medium temp.

With electric, it might be more of a learning curve since you can't see a flame.

After reading this discussion this morning, I had to make pancakes! NY maple syrup and lots of butter - yum. (I also add a tsp. of vanilla and a generous dash of nutmeg to the batter.)

what do you cook your pancakes on?

If I'm making a large batch of pancakes, French toast, or grilled cheese sandwiches, etc. I use this:

http://www.amazon.com/Nordic-Ware-Bur...

It works great on my gas cooktop, and cleans up very easily. It's cheap enough to replace as needed, but it's pretty sturdy so I don't think that will happen soon.

Also works on the outdoor grill, and I've used it in the oven.

Oh, Lord, ahgal! That has to be so damn exciting! New kitchen stuff, family in for the holiday - I hope you have a wonderful time.

To answer your question - NO, not if I had such anticipation. I admit, I've pulled out my holiday files (special recipes, notes about previous dinners, etc.) Good luck!!

Well, if you turn your head sideways, they kinda look like smiles. Well, from a psycho clown, but still.

"New Revereware"

Thanks, CaliforniaJoseph.

Based on your information, and the estimated age of the pan, my mom didn't buy it, but inherited it. No wonder she didn't ever use the pan - probably didn't know what to make in it. Just stuck it in the back of the cupboard and forgot about it, most likely.

Haha, no fire-king obsession here! Thanks again for your help, and I'll clean it up and hold on to it instead of donating.

It does sit flat, btw.

You weren't bothering me -- all smiles here. :)

"New Revereware"

That has to be it. Mine is the medium size. My searches through ebay didn't pull these up at all. I would have thought that Revere would have stamped their goods, but apparently not always.

Thanks!

Odd that these are pizza pans. Makes me wonder if Rome NY had the first official deep dish pizza idea? LOL

"New Revereware"

Thanks, and I did the search on it using your criteria and including the 2519. Clearly, not the pan I have. This model 2519 is all stainless, without a copper bottom, has a traditional pie pan shape. Mine has a copper clad bottom that goes up the side a bit more than the traditional Revere Ware, and has a rolled edge and a SLIGHTLY angled side. The lack of an angle is more obvious on the picture showing the copper bottom. Pretty much straight sided. Also, no manufacturer's marks at all.

Not to be contentious, but did anyone actually look at the photos I uploaded?

Again, I appreciate everyone's help. I just wish I saw this pan when my mom was still alive - perhaps she could have given me some information regarding where she got it, etc.

I doubt I'll use it for anything, and will probably donate it to my sister's church thrift store.

"New Revereware"

I did several searches, using your criteria, and I couldn't find anything like it. Thanks, though, and I'll keep trying.

"New Revereware"

Yeah, I thought it might be a quiche pan. It sure can't be used on a burner without any kind of handle.

Can Richard Blais Save the Food Network? A Look At His New Show, Hungry Games

Maybe. But it won't be based on my likes. I never got the appeal of Blais, and his take on food. I'm tired of the whole molecular gastronomy thing. (If I have to rely on spell check to write out what I just wrote, it's not a good thing for food, in my opinion.)

"New Revereware"

Okay, guys, I've not included this before because I've been lazy. However, now I'm wondering: what is this pan, and what was it used for? My late mother had this in her cupboards, and I have no idea when she got it, or even what it was used for that I'm aware of. It wasn't in her kitchen when I was a kid. It reminds me of Revereware, but there are no markings. It weighs about 1.5 lbs, and is not quite 9.5 inches across.

(Hey, I KNOW you guys love this shit, but I can't come up with the copper layer info, sorry.)

Any answers to this mystery is most appreciated!

Masterchef US Final 3 tonight--conclusion (expect spoilers here)

I don't either. Only as good as your last dish bullcrap. So that basically gives the producers a pass, and season-long merit doesn't mean a thing.

Yes, if we were to keep this "food-related" it would be pretty much a geoduck clam on steroids.

I think I need to bleach my eyeballs.

The Awful Reign of the Red Delicious

I live a couple miles from Indian Ladder Farms and I love their philosophy and that it's a very old establishment that's keeping current and growing such a great variety of apples.

This Albany NY Times Union article is about modifying apples to prevent browning:

http://www.timesunion.com/default/art...

I found this comment within the article so silly:

"The bottom line is convenience," Carter said. "It's really the fact that people want more convenience, and a whole apple represents too big of a commitment."

Back to the apple discussed: I've always disliked Red Delicious because of the mealy texture (might as well eat
packing peanuts.) Yuck.

PUMPKIN MANIA creep

Hilarious.

The corgis are waiting for pumpkin spice Beggin Strips... LOL
