Ask RuBo: Holiday Edition

this is great advice, I am going to tell my guests that the funky tasting homemade ice in my freezer is "preinfused".

Why aren't donuts more popular as a dessert item?

how about the fact that you need a fryer to make a donut and the oil in the fryers has a tendancy to be tainted by the things t hat get cooked in it so you would need to dedicate an entire fryer bay so that you dont have fishy donuts.

$18/week

I think this is a great challenge and wish you much luck. cabbage, and other greens are cheep. this time of the year you can get apples for about a buck a pound at the supermarkets. the king soopers (krogger) in colorado usually marks down meat on tuesdays for older beef and you can usually get chicken on the bone for less than boneless.

Should New York City Take Soda Away from Poor People?

KevinPorter does have a good question, where does it stop? all you can buy is chicken breast, whole wheat flour, fruits and veggies?

Should New York City Take Soda Away from Poor People?

If I were to give those same people money out of my own pocket (instead of my paycheck), I would want to make sure they are buying things that are actually food. Not chemicals masquerading as food. Push on Mayor Bloomburg!!

Basic Ranch Dressing

I made a half order of this recipe and it came out very runny. it ran through my lettuce and into the bottom of the bowl. I used buttermilk that was made from 1% milk and vinegar so not buttermilk from the store. Do you think that this could have caused the watery consistency or is this expected?

Homemade Mayonnaise

of course store bought eggs maybe aren't the safest lately with the big recall
