Is King Arthur Flour worth the price?

Actually KA does use some GMO stuff.

But since she's buying primarily flour, there's no worries no matter what brand since there's no GMO wheat or flour for sale in North America. (Assuming OP is in North America.) Here's KA's FAQ on GMO (so many letters!). I find it interesting that they are so honest.

"Food based" Mosquito Repellent

Just a thought - from as many people on these boards that have problems with people wearing perfume or hairspray, consider that the smell of what you're suggesting might be offensive to others. I personally can't get within 50 yards of clove anything. Not that OFF smells so great, but the smell doesn't last very long. Not trying to be a negative Nellie - just a thought.

Gordon Ramsey leans in, close, closer, and whispers - "You have to believe in yourself. I'm worried about you. Just stay calm. You can do this okay?"

Leans back, screams "THIS IS CRAP!"

Pull One Off for Carl's Jr./Hardee's?

My husband and I had a conversation about that. He thought it was blatant - I thought it was less so, but sounded awkward anyway. It's still better than their bikini models licking cheese off themeslves ad campaign.

78%, but I chose the true answer instead of what they would deem as "correct". I can't drink wine, so no - I don't pair.

Just a little bit more - oops

Sure, but somewhere in my thinking head I knew that two cups of oil was way too much. Why would anything need that much oil?

My just a little bit more problems usually involve the broiler.

Just a little bit more - oops

Added two cups of oil to a sauce instead of two tablespoons. Totally new recipe, totally new cuisine - had no idea what I was doing and just plain read the damn thing wrong. Spent 30 minutes skimming it, then dumped it and started over.

Great new program teaches people in 'food deserts' about healthy eating, shopping and cooking.

They actually said on the website: "Cheetos = cocaine".

Famous Regional Food you find embarrassing or disgusting?

I think my grandfather's clothing store was next door to the Phoenix.

Boneless, Skinless chicken breasts with off texture

Most likely injected with water or salt water. I can't buy grocery store chicken any more for that reason.

It seems like you must know him personally. I know Dan, as I've stated before. If he's your friend, then hey - that's cool.

He's a complete reality TV tool in every sense. He acts like a tool and puts on his "personality" to get more TV time. The producers probably love him, thinking this is just what the viewers want - drama and BS. I don't care if he can cook or not. I'd rather watch real people than bad actors like MK and Stripper Girl.

America's Test Kitchen reviews are meaningless

Thank you! And thanks Greygarious for the info too. I'm probably going to apply once I finish my next two blog projects.

OT, but carolinadawg - I see you're the only one trying to help out posters in Food Quests. I think that's really nice.

Yes, more info please! That sounds like a fun job and/or hobby. Was it paid? Did you have to apply or did you know someone? Did you run into problems obtaining ingredients in China? Please tell us all about it. Or tell me anyway.

He's listed as "unemployed" on his bio, but since the show started he's been going viewing parties with food trucks at local breweries, and I think he's starting to do pop-up stuff around town.

Or some sort of their own interpretation of red velvet cake - not just "make this exact thing this exact way."

Very sad to see Dan go this early, but he was certainly not a "personality" that the producers would be looking for. This show is definitely one of the lesser cooking competitions, IMHO. Very few of the challenges seem to be about cooking skill, as opposed to "make this one thing". I'd rather see them branch out and show what they're good at, like in the first episode. Oh well. Dan's back home and cooking like crazy all over town, so I'll get to enjoy his food IRL.

Avatars -- describe? u/l a pic?

Mine is Yukon Cornelius, from Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. There was a discussion from last season's Top Chef where we realized that one of the contestants looked just like him, so I added him to my profile. It looks nothing like me (I'm a lovely lady) but I don't want to change it for some reason. I like it.

Celiacs, Sacraments, and High Holy Days?

It's a common abbreviation for Christmas - is it possible that you've never heard it before? It's been around almost a thousand years.

Xmas: "Christmas," 1551, X'temmas, wherein the X is an abbreviation for Christ in Christmas, English letter X being identical in form (but not sound signification) to Greek chi, the first letter of Greek Christos "Christ" (see Christ). The earlier way to abbreviate the word in English was Xp- or Xr- (corresponding to the "Chr-" in Greek Χριστος), and the form Xres mæsse for "Christmas" appears in the "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" (c.1100).

Celiacs, Sacraments, and High Holy Days?

I guess they have to consider the vegetarians too, who wouldn't want to eat the body. And the recovering alcoholics who shouldn't have the wine. Very complicated.
