New season: Heartland Table

People aren't fat because they eat butter and cheese. It is because of portion size and carb overload, soda, sugar, etc... people who eat fats are more easily satiated, and are less inclined to overeat and binge. France is a perfect example of this. They eat butter, cream sauces, rich meats....they are mostly thin in France. I'm sure that Amy is also very active-her lifestyle would allude to that; at least.

Basic Pancakes

The recipe calls for 1-1/2 tsp baking powder.Did you read the recipe?

Basic Pancakes

I think suggesting to let the batter sit for up to 12 hours before frying up the cakes is really not a great idea at all-the leavening properties of the baking powdrer will be greatly diminshed making a dense undesirable pancake. I think most people will be disappointed if they follow that suggestion.

Basic Pancakes

They only called for 1 tsp, if you halved the recipe, that would be only 1/2 tsp. did you possibly add too much baking powder? That is salty too...

If you dont like the flavor of vanilla, don't add it.It is only for flavor.put as little or as much as you want. I always use a tbsp when baking, I love vanilla....

Should You Tip on Takeout?

wow, so people who dont tip for take out are selfish and miserly? really? Or maybe they want to give tips to people who earn them. They're not selfish, just accurate and appropriate.

Should You Tip on Takeout?

Preparing a to-go order means putting items in a bag. That is part of their job. It's not rocket science, nor is it labor intensive. As I said in another post-There are many extra things I do as a hospital worker-that I do, not expecting a tip. We arent getting paid much either, but its my job.

TV cooking show pet peeves

Your comment reminded me of another pet peeve...related to yours.I hate when Emeril used to get cheers for throwing extra garlic in things-or extra anything for that matter.but garlic seemed to consistently elicit the cheers from the crowd-as if it were some sort of sporting event. give me a break!!

Should You Tip on Takeout?

My god, this is ridiculous! I work in a psychiatric hospital-and according to what many of the commenters have said-I should be expecting or receiving tips for my services! In addition to running therapy groups, I make beds, hand out linens, serve meals, shower people, dole out toiletries,have 1:1 contacts, take people on walks,toilet patients, offer coping skills, play cards/games with patients, play guitar/sing for patients-the list goes on. I get paid crap! We get no bonuses, we work grueling 13 hour shifts, and we are often in dangerous situations-where we are injured, spit at etc....please don'ttell me that the staff putting a take-out order together deserves a tip, please. don't.

For some of us-a couple of bucks is a big deal...for those who are well off-fine, but for those of us who live paycheck to paycheck, and only order out as a treat once in a while- I want to make sure my tip goes to someone that's earned it.
