At what point does a recipe become "yours"?

I don't think it ever does . Look at the meme theory .

A Faster Chowhound: Pagination for Longer Threads

Correct me If I am wrong . Before on my profile page I was only able to go back so far in reading my followed discussions , maybe a month . I scrolled down the page and found page numbers . I clicked on page ten and low and behold there was my first post on 6/11 and discussions all the way to date. Were you able to do this before ?

Anyone else getting tired of "new" Craft Beer,Gourmet Burgers & 3rd Wave Coffee joints in Bay Area?

Maybe it's time to take a trip back in time . You should go to the Liguria Bakery . Redundant no . No bourgeois banality . Are they making the panettone this year ? Off topic I know . I'll be heading there this weekend . A lot of hidden gems you still have in the city .

What ONE nonstick should I get

I wonder how my simply Calphalon 10" covered omlette pan is going to work out . It is on my Christmas list . I'm sort of rough on my pans .

A tribute of sorts to A-1 steak sauce, perhaps the worst steak sauce ever.

I like A-1, though I don't use it that much . I prefer ketchup , Heinz brand to be exact . It's my number one condiment. And yes I occasionally like it on a hot dog .

Forgot Frozen Stouffers Lasagna in trunk of car for 2 weeks, is it okay to refreeze and eat since its been cold out?

I'm going to have to order it . Rather than cook by time . Recipes are given for miles driven . No more keeping foods warm while transporting . I'll just pop open the hood when I arrive at my destination and have it cooked to perfection . Now , how many miles do I have to drive to cook that crown roast ???

I think I remember a episode where Keith Floyd cooked meat on the engine manifold while driving through the Australian outback .

For something a little different . I liked Dinner Rush with Danny Aiello as a part time bookmaker , who discovers that his restaurant has become a hotbead of conflicting characters.

Do you ever dream of food?

Cooked foods you have left out overnight and were OK to eat .

Title says it all . I have left big pots of soup out overnight . To hot to put into the fridge I would leave them out overnight. The next morning I would put them in the fridge . I would then heat some up for dinner with no ill effects . Maybe not everyone would do this, but it was OK for me .

Your right . My father was from Conn. He called Buffalo the icebox of the east .

I guess that's the advantage of living in NYC . In the winter you can use the trunk of your car as a freezer .

Being "put to work" at a Christmas Party

No . This Roz episode was not as good as the rest . Maybe we're in for a big surprise on New years eve . The suspense is killing me . Still my favorite was the one about ; I'm sorry you don't like what I ordered , but keep your thoughts to yourself .

A Message from The Chowhound Team & Plans for 2015

First of all get rid of Chow or Chowhound. Make a choice. Why do you have two names? That's lame. Sorry. Thanksgiving sounds to be your biggest draw for people visiting the site. I would look into that. Stop micro managing posts. Have any new signups quit your site because of to many !!!! ? I would say no. I came onto this site because I could say what I wanted. It's the long time posters you're turning away. Don't lose them. I don't think your sponsors would mind a few bad words. More viewers more money.

Walnut Butcher Board Counters - raised wood areas - Ack!

What's the difference between the high end Boos counters or the normal Williamsburg counters ?

if you could live anywhere at any income level, what would you choose?

I would have a house in Pacific Heights in San Francisco . Over looking the bay with a view of the Golden Gate. Steinway grand piano ,Brazilian mahogany floors ,with a large kitchen , coffered ceilings and a elevator . Yea ,and chauffer . Now let's go out and get something to eat or find something to cook at home . Sky's the limit .

Where to buy the best fresh crab- live preferred in Fort Bragg- Mendocino Area?
