Vintage Cuisinart food processors

Try EBAY for a replacement.

I'm not sure if your new/old are interchangeable but I'd assume if it fits....Easy assumption for me to make with your brand new machine. ;-)

Canning cherry tomatoes

I had a hard time finding recipes, I was just curious if it was an acid issue or a time issue.

I canned some over the summer..it was a pain in the butt but I love having yellow tomatoes for sauce in the winter.

I think I'm going to try cooking and freezing. Peeling tiny tomatoes is a bit much.

Thanks!

Just Bought a Food Processor

I recently used mine to mince chicken and it came out great.

I couldn't live without my processor, it's the only thing that's allowed to live on the counter full time.

Crazy supermarket check-out experience

I would try to think of the craziest thing about me and be sympathetic. Or at least patient.

That's on a good day.

On a bad day I'd huff and sigh and probably say something under my breath and switch lines.

Canning cherry tomatoes

Why is this ill advised? I've had a heck of a time finding recipes.

Simply because it's just a pain in the rump?

Caramelized Onions - what's the best way to make them

One more vote for the oven method. I like that it's off the stovetop and out of my face.

Wine Etiquette

It's not ok...but.

If you can get yourself put on wine duty, you can open what you like. ;-)

If they're very good friends then I say bring it.

Should I return it?

I say for 1/4 of the regular retail price you go back, look for a perfect exchange, if you can't find one keep it and use the heck out of it for the YEARS it will take to "weaken".

Waiting for a table - what's your limit?

20 minutes for a table.

If there's a seat at the bar, chances are I'll eat at the bar.

Tipping at the bar vs tipping at the table

Take care of your bartender, your bartender takes care of you.

Best fruit in winter?

It's getting late for them but I discovered persimmons this year, or as I like to call them "honey tomatoes".

Red grapes also tend to be good this time of year.

best thing to eat when stomach is off?

Bread sticks and cola for me.

You might try a little rice pudding...

What is your favorite CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP kitchen gadget

A small silicone baster/mop that I got at Crate and Barrel. I use it for buttering the pancake griddle.

Do you have a pot rack in your kitchen?

I'm so short that if I had one that was funtional for me, my 6'2" hubby would not be able to cook. (and we're NOT having that)

I have pot hooks in my pantry.
