hopefully it won't be strange and unusual but it probably will be which is too bad

when eddie wins (there is no reason why he shouldn't) I don't see him "breaking out" but you never know...I hope he does

imo a show pairing him up with the right person (arnold? dom? sandra lee? ina?) that would be money :D

eek, The whole show seems like it is green screened

the people in the back barely move-it is probably just me

totally OT but Jack bishop should have his own show.

I call BS on that! fakefakefake

why don't they just start with the drama queens, the victims, the quirky and the sad sacks and not waste the viewer's or the "peripheral" contestants' time?

has this show been this predictable and PC and I never realized it?

The Bitten Word Website thebittenword.com

I just found this website and really am liking it, thought I would "share" in case some haven't been there

description:

"We're Zach and Clay, and we started this blog because we had a problem: too many issues of food magazines we received were going unread or unused. So in 2008 we made a resolution: start cooking at least one recipes from each of our magazines. Years later, we're still at it, but now we also feature original recipes and share other things we're passionate about, like travel and books."

Table Top Electric Grill Recommendations?

no, no smoking, burgers, hot dogs, steaks, and maybe (and it's a big maybe) ribs and boneless chicken breasts

pretty much just basic outdoor grilling for 2-6 or so people

they have an outlet on their deck they can put a table near so no cord issues

thanks for any advice

Table Top Electric Grill Recommendations?

My mom is going to buy one for my dad.

They are retired and don't want to bother with propane or charcoal but want to be able to cook outside once in awhile

any recommendations?

Thanks :)

Masterchef returns with new judge

They way they made the woman in the headscarf think she won and then turned around and kicked her to the curb was brutal and cruel

*but* they hopefully know what they will face by signing up for the show, I hope at least they are prepped about abuse and humilation

girloftheworld may have some insight on this

Mussels - Farmed vs Wild?

I just had wild mussels the other day and thought they were tastier than the pei mussels (which is usually all I can find)

what is your choice when buying mussels? do you think there is a difference?

I call complete BS on that elimination

I know the show is completely fake which makes it almost worse.

anyway Hetel completely melted down and should have gone (her food was awful-the drama with Gordon was humiliating - but he obviously wanted to keep her on)

and again a white male (who I didn't particulary like) has some pride, actually stands up for himself is kicked, not because of his food (which was lousy I am sure but not as bad as the other person's)

but because of his attitude (petulant child?) and possibly because of his color and gender

I completely expect this post to be deleted.

Vegetables that aren't necessary to grow at home?

yes that is exactly why I picked these vegetables, I never will find them locally as plants (except maybe for the beefsteaks)
the carrots also I never tried, they are Kuroda carrots, we'll see.

Vegetables that aren't necessary to grow at home?

I ended up planting 2 types of tomatoes (Boxcar willie and beefsteak),sweet peppers (Jimmy Nardello), filet bush beans (Calima), rainbow swiss chard and a few carrots. For herbs I have basil and 3 perennials; sage, oregano and thyme

The boxcar willie tomatoes, the peppers and the bush beans are varieties I have never tried. Am looking forward to how they turn out.

I don't think the save picks are bizarre at all
it was obvious the annoying chef would win over the chef who got NO screen time and like you said no one was aware of

it's WAY too early to predict but I bet on the drummer whose mom was/is disappointed in him vs one of the single moms (probably shelly)

Pizza Dough

You are so right I found that out last night! Thanks for the tip :)

Pizza Dough

6.75 oz of water (about 3/4 a cup)
12 oz of AP flour (1.5 cup)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp yeast

correct me if I am wrong but how can about 3/4 a cup of water absorb 1 1/2 cups of flour without being sticky?

maybe the recipe was wrong in proportion ? I also can't find this recipe anywhere online

Anyway, does anyone have a recipe for refrigerator bread/pizza dough? I think that may do the trick with making a good dough at home
