Easy Quick Pickles

Geez, pgalioni. This is a 'fresh' pickle, not Kimchi. Sign up and write a recipe for kimchi if you like, but gosh, you just don't get it. Ok. You forgot your meds this morning. That's all. I understand.

Are You a Supertaster? Take This Test

There's more to tasting than the number of little white dots on the tongue. Anyone who really tastes things has an educated palate. Meaning that they have spent a little time studying how they taste things, and what things taste like. Lots of folks have a multitude of taste buds, but don't know the difference between ice cream and mashed potatoes when blind folded and nose blocked.

Potato, Quinoa, and Cumin Hash Browns

Just wondering about the picture. How do we get 12 perfectly square hashbrowns from a round frying pan?

Barley with Winter Greens Pesto

Ok. Some folks think that Pesto means green. It doesn't. For 2000 years, it meant basil, garlic, and pine nuts pounded together in olive oil. You folks didn't lose the recipe. You lost your soul.

Green Bean Casserole Redux

Shallots? Dusted shallots? We don't need no shallots! We don't have no shallots! We don't have to dust no stinkin' shallots!

Green Bean Casserole

I'm with Dickscat. If there's no French's Onions or Campbell's Cream of Mushroom mentioned in the recipe, why bother? This ain't no gormay food. It's easy food, made by harried mothers trying to feed a bunch of people and still get sleep. Next we'll be watching someone from SF or NYC adding grilled veg and chicken bits.

Dealing with Food Hoarders

Perfect answer. I've done it all. Brought out all the outdated and ancient foodstuffs for them to decide upon. Super secret late nite raids and garbage day throw outs. The truth is, if it is old, they probably have forgotten that they have it. Indeed, they will buy more cans of those putred green beans to put in front of the ones they already haven't used. Just dump the stuff and don't mention it.

Faux Gras: Surprise on a Cracker

I for one have not eaten a pulse, or anything resembling a pulse or bean, since I spent two or three days communing with a black eyed pea back in 1973. Talk about sentient beings.....

I call him BEP. I'm his pet. And he tells me to tell you to stop eating artificial Foie Gras. Stop the making of Soy Sauce and Tamari across the world. Now. Or Else.
