Healthy Pancakes

Anyone have a good recipe for healthy pancakes? I'd love to be able to make a batter at the beginning of the week so I can toss them on the griddle in the morning before I head off to work.

Wine Cooler Temperature

Does keeping the wine at a colder temperature affect the red at all?

Wine Cooler Temperature

I picked up a simple 16 bottle wine cooler. It only has one compartment with one temperature setting. If I have both red and white, what's the best temperature to maintain the wine?

Choy Pong Hai - Chinese Dish

Anyone have a recipe for this? I believe it's egg whites with fish/crab meat/scallops normally. Never been able to make it like they do in the Chinese restaurants though.

If you're not sure what I'm talking about see the link below...

Zuni Chicken

Just a quick question for those who have made it.

When they say season 2-3 days in advance are they referring to the process whereby you do the S&P as well as the herbs under the skin?

As well, I'm a little confused about the scoring of the skin and draining of the juices afterwards, can someone elaborate?

Thanks!

Breaded Cooking

Hi All,

I find when I cook breaded things (i.e. chicken cutlets) in a frying pan, the first batch turns out nice and golden brown but afterwards it gets uneven or begins to char a bit.

Anyone have any good methods of preventing this?

Thanks!

Buying Fresh Fish (Markham-GTA)

Does anyone have a good place to buy a larger variety of fresh fish (besides your local supermarket). Looking for things like Ahi Tuna or Chilean Sea Bass.

Thanks!

Pork Roast Cooking Time

I think I'm actually going to do a dry roast in my dutch oven instead. I'm going to be picking up a piece around 7-8 pounds with bone in. Fourunder you're saying it usually takes around 11 hours at 225?

Pork Roast Cooking Time

Went to the butcher today and I think i'm going to order a 7-8lb bone in boston butt. I was thinking of braising it in an apple juice type liquid (good or bad idea?) along with a dry rub since I do want a sauce at the end.

So ~11 hours at 225 should do the trick?

Pork Roast Cooking Time

Just wondering if there was a general rule for cooking a pork shoulder. I'm going to do a dry rub and brown it in all sides in my dutch oven. Deglaze and top up with some stock and let it go at a low temperature.

Are there cooking temperature/time guidelines I should follow?
