sauerkraut pierogies are my favourite kind of pierogues! I'm the only one of my cousins that likes them, so I say all the more for me :)

oh, I thought Dave had "given" the recipe that he had brought to Tiffany. Ed's "recipe" WAS more of a proportions thing, you are right, plus it was a basic cake, whereas Dave's was a whole dessert concept.

Most likely to bust your balls? Grayson
Most likely to bite off a finger? Ed
Most likely to be forgotten? Lindsay
Most likely to make a dish you want to try? Paul
Most likely to stab you in the back? Lindsay
Most likely to get caught having sex in the walk in? Grayson
Most likely to win? Paul
Most likley to kick your ass while smiling? Sarah

This reminds me of the days past when I would be about 20 surveys a day on... wow, was that myspace?

DEfinitely! I mean, I'm pretty pretty sure they made it very difficult for someone who was told to PYKAG early on to make it to the finale on purpose.... It makes for a much more exciting story if they do, and a much more dramatic announcement. Not to mention the fact that they had to triumph against contestants that made it much further in the competition than them. It takes much more skill to win a myriad of competitions utilizing different skills based (mainly) solely on their own merit as opposed to (again mainly, so far at least) group competitions. Consistently winning head to head competition in a win or go home scenario is much more impressive.

Was it that competition in which Tiffany used (I think it was Dave's) dessert recipe and did not mention this when talking to the judge's, but Dave did talk about it? Sounds kinda like Heather and Ed, eh?

I second that. I like her more and more as the season goes on. I actually was rooting for her (slightly) at the beginning since I'd seen her on Chef Hunter, and she impressed me with her attitude.

JAB, I say that all the time!! Why can't they take the best of both worlds with regards to Mounds and Almond Joy?? They're both made by Peter Pan.... it just baffles me why that hasn't even been tried!

Ah, so my initial impression would be at least somewhat on the mark. That the people who said it were considering the other person dead for all intents and person.....

Weird/Bad Food Related Dates

I can't imagine ever using RIP for a person that's alive.... kinda seems like tempting fate, you know? I know I'd be pretty insulted if someone used that in referring to me, I'd feel like they maybe wished I was dead. But, to each his/her own, I suppose.

ETA: I just read it.... pretty lame this week. I wouldn't really recommend it unless you're bored. Sad, as I usually like this one quite a bit.

Ahhh yeah, sorta like forcemeat, but with fillers and binders. They could maybe use ground shrimp as a binder, or something like that to keep it tender.

Oooh... I wonder if they could do something awesome with saltenas, too. I wonder though, if trying to elevate saltenas and empanadas would cause them to lose part of what makes them special, and thus ruin them.

this might be a stupid question, but is tender meat a recipe, or just how your family makes your meat tender?

Can someone please explain the concept?

HAHA I said that the other night when a housemate was asking me about cooking one pork loin versus two. He was convinced you added the weights together. I wasn't sure (because much like mucho) it is something I can never remember, so I looked it up. He still wasn't convinced, and I went into the whole meat glue (aka transglutaminase) thing and then he got it :P
