Exactly. With all of my OCD in the kitchen I am a slow cook. So many procedures. But I enjoy it. That's the way I do it. Sauce will be ready for the pasta..

Obama cuts the line at Franklin BBQ in Austin

I'm the Pres.. Get out of my way. That's the perks. Stand for hours in a line to get barbecue. I don't know. Is it worth the wait ?

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

NonnieMuss has a great topic about foods from your region that are embarrassing and disgusting. I had nothing to say living in California. I'm sure you can come up with plenty. But on the other hand we have a lot of great foods. What are foods from your region that you are proud of, and nobody does it better ?

Tipping during happy hour

I tip by how happy I am at happy hour. I drink, I get happy and I tip a lot.

In desperate need of ideas on what to cook my Mother-in-law for dinner!

Probably the easiest is to ask your husband what she might like to eat, He knows her better than anybody.

guests not offering to do dishes, is it rude?

No it's not rude. Just bring the wine. When ever I visit my sister and family. I have never done the dishes. But, I always help set up and clean up.

Pasta dishes. Do you serve as a 1st course or main ?

I have always made it a main course. Served with a salad or vegetables. All shapes. Dry,fresh,ragu, seafood... Growing up with Italian Americans this is what came to be. Do you serve it as a first course or serve as a main ?

Removing bitter aftertaste from pesto?

For myself I always prefer to use a mortar and pestle when making pesto. I have used the blender and was always inferior in taste and texture. I didn't know about the blender and olive oil.

Choice is not as lean as select and has more marbling. And prime is better than both.

Best bottled Barbecue Sauce

Any brands you like to use that aren't so sweet. I bought Bulls-Eye brown sugar and mesquite flavor today for my ribs. yuck. I couldn't find the regular. So I used some left over Stubbs that I had. It's also meh. What's your choice ? Or do you make your own ?

Adam Richman goes too far

I don't get social media either. That's what happens after reading what a fat POS you are for the thousand time. You blow up.

What cooking vessel should be your best?

One of these days I will own a 7 1/2 or 9 quart French oven as le Creuset. I would love one.

So just what is a "Gourmet Kitchen?"

Nothing more than my gourmet house, backyard, car, and everything else. I have the most expensive kitchen in the world to heat up Hot Pockets in the microwave. I have never used the kitchen for cooking. Just thinking about it makes me puke.

Same winery,varietal,and year ?

Purchased a Napa valley pinot a couple weeks ago around thirty dollars at the same liquor store.Was looking forward to another bottle.It didn't taste the same as the previous bottle. Which I really liked. Was it me, the wine, or other ? Have you ever bought the same wine and it tastes different to you. I'm not expecting them to be exact, but have you ever noticed it ? New to wine. Is this to be expected when buying wine ?
