Can I make stock with proscuitto skin?

My husband brought home a couple of pounds of the outside of proscuitto skin, can I use it in stock or render the fat or anything with it?

Is Registering for a $2,400 Espresso Maker Rude?

I learned the hard way that weddings not are nothing but big business. Register for whatever the fuck you want, because your guests are going to give you whatever the fuck they want. I just hope your future husband is as awesome as mine is and will do all the returns for you. Stop caring about what other people think about your wedding! Now. Because no matter how beautiful or PC your wedding is, people will talk shit about it behind your back: NO MATTER WHAT. So enjoy yourself and just resign yourself to these words: "haters gonna hate"

Chow recs needed for trip to Charleston, Savannah, and Hilton Head

You MUST go to Fig! In Charleston! It is SO WONDERFUL! Ask the waiter when you get there about a tasting menu ( the only way to go!) and make sure you get the coddled egg! Thank me later!

Jalapeño-Cheese Corn "Dogs"

Do you think I could make these smaller, like appetizer sized so that I could fry them in my fry daddy?

Your Favorite Weight Loss Tricks and Recipes

To lose a significant amount of weight quickly:

NO REFINED SUGAR! There is pretty much nothing that has refined sugar in it that is good for you.

NO ALCOHOL! You just don't need it. Really. I promise.

YES FRUIT!

YES VEGGIES!

YES WATER! Do you know how much sodium a diet soda has in it?!?!

Also I avoid fast food as much as possible. It really really makes a HUGE difference in how huge your butt is or isn't!

Best Food Pairing With Dirty Vodka Martini?

I really like them with high fat cheeses. Like make a sweet brie en croute so you get sweet and salty. I also like them with crab legs, the salty and the sweet it rocks my world!

Best Take Along Vodka

I'm going to the beach with some friends tomorrow and I have a bottle of crummy vodka that I want to mix up a beachside cocktail that I can put in a jug or bottle in my cooler. Any suggestions?

Issues baking bread

I HAVE to knead my bread dough, it wastes too much dough IMHO so I just bought an inexpensive pastry mat ( I think its Pamperd Chef) and knead on that as it is mostly non stick.

Baby Back Ribs

If you are concerned about them being tough or dont have time (I never do) for a lot of brining etc. Ribs are wonderful started in the crockpot and finished on the grill (especially cheap ones!)

Worst tasting snacks - ever!!!!

When I first got my driver's license, I had to cart my little sister everywhere I went. I used to make her stand outside of the car to eat these if she bought them at the gas station!

And for some reason she still loves me!

Worst tasting snacks - ever!!!!

When I used to work at earthfare they gave us this supplement with spirulina in it to try (they gave us a whole bottle!) and we were all supposed to mix it into our juice in the morning. It made my farts smell like a hot summery pond! It's funny now, but it wasn't then.

Your favourite "magic" few-ingredient recipes

This is super cheap and easy to make!

Delicious Fishes

One bag frozen tiliapia filets
Two (or three if they are small) sweet onions sliced thinly
Three or four lemons juiced and zested
about two or threeTBSP butter
Salt
Pepper

Melt butter in a nonstick pan with a lid and add onions and a little salt and pepper and sweat until clear.
Meanwhile rub lemon zest and salt and pepper onto fish
When the onions are clear, place the fish over the top of them in a single layer and put the lid on.
Leave the lid closed until the fish is cooked through, and flakes with a fork.
When the fish is cooked, crank the heat up to high and add a splash of the lemon juice and let the onion carmelize ALMOST burning it.
Dump the entire contents out onto a plate of wild rice and go crazy!

My roommate who was vegetarian would beg me to make extra onions to put on her veggie burgers!
