Your favorite spaghetti recipe .

I'm in a cooking rut . Bored . I used to make pasta all the time . I burned out on it . Ready to eat it again . I'm looking for your dried spaghetti recipe . I like this noodle the best . I'm not going to start looking through my cookbooks . Just asking you for help to get me out of my funk . Seafood , meat sauce , sugo , Sunday gravy , fresh tomato ,a different pesto not using basil ,etc etc . Thanks

Is Gatorade an acceptable generic name for sports drinks?

I have never had the Costco brand . Would you be able to taste the difference in a blind tasting ? Curious .

So many burger chains

I only eat at chains if I am in a hurry . I like In and Out , can't stand their fries but I do not have one nearby . So it's still McDonalds for me . A Big Mac and a Cheeseburger please . No soda ,fries, or anything else . Fill my pie hole and I'm on my way .

The drawback I see is scratches . The first big one you get you will probably always be staring at it . No way to get rid of it . It is there forever .

Announcement: The Beta Site is Open to Everyone!

I like the new form . The old form was like being used to driving my 89 GMC truck , not comfortable but worked. The new form is better . Like my new car . It's much better . Drives fast and smooth . I'll figure out all the bells and whistles as I read the owners manual.

No kids allowed?

Kids are not the problem . It's the people who raise them .

What . Are they going to check the kids I.D. . I have heard plenty of noisy adults in a restaurant's . They are way worse . I would avoid this place just for having such a stupid rule .

The Beta Site is Getting Closer

Friday evening . Perfect , I'll be quaffing beers for the new release .

Cookbooks vs. Online recipes . Which do you prefer ?

For myself . I have been using more online recipes than my cookbooks . I do miss the days of scanning the bookstores , searching cookbooks for recipes . Maybe I'm just lazy now and use the internet . I haven't bought a cookbook in awhile . And you ?

Foodini: One device will change how we cook forever

I'm not sure on this . Go to the website and look how to clean it . Stainless steel capsules that are reusable . Seems like you have to turn the ingredients into pudding and load . Or buy theirs . I would probably use it if I was a astronaut headed for Mars .

Beer

Your favorite grocery store ice cream

Also I put water in them and freeze . Great for keeping my lunch cool in my Igloo Playmate .

What are the treasured items in your kitchen?

Maybe it was a little OCD or being a first infantry Marine Guadalcanal survivor . As far back as I remember he would not start any meal with this fork . It has some long tines on it and are becoming a little worn after fifty plus years of use . Nothing fancy about it .
Being of Lithuanian decent . Loved gardening , and always made his own food . A great soup maker , and always said you have to eat your root vegetables . Going out to eat will kill you, he said . Took great care of my mom .Passing at 95 . Gotta go now starting to shed a tear .

An Inconvenient Truth and environmentally friendly food choices

The earth will take care of it self . It's the humans it want's to get rid of .

Dungeness crab recipes

Live , steamed 18 minutes . Chilled down in a ice bath . Clean . Then I put the claws and body on a sheet pan . I never make it to the table . I end up standing over the kitchen sink cracking the claws and body . With a cold beer . No butter , just plain . I'll wait for this again around Thanksgiving here on the west coast .

What are the treasured items in your kitchen?

I forgot to say my most treasured possession is a fork my father ate every meal with . He would not use any other than this fork . I use it to eat with everyday in memory of him . He loved his food . It is a heirloom .

Does parking make a difference for you ?

Perfectly worded . That is what I wanted to say . Sometimes I just don't know how to spit out a question .

Scientists have discovered a new taste that could make food more delicious

I discovered that lardo butter made my food taste better years ago.

Who says ethnic ? I say." let's go get some Italian , Mexican , Greek , Russian, etc,etc, food."
