Your Favorite Rainy Day Soup?

I love soups in general, but a favorite is Soba Noodle made with homemade chicken broth, mushrooms & lots of vegetables.

What the heck is Jamie Oliver's red chili?

We planted Fresno, thinking it was the ONE, wow, HOT. Do not think he uses that so freely and the shape is wrong.

Pickling stuff! What else to pickle?

I make Kim Chee, the korean pepper or paste is so good in it, but so is Siracha.

Vientiane Laotian/Thai restaurant, perfect stop on drive from San Francisco to Tahoe [West Sacramento]

That's funny, me too...I have to impress on wait persons that YES, I DO want it HOT!. My English complexion and age seems to make it hard to believe.

Red Palm Oil

I just bought Okanature X Virgin red palm oil. I tried using some in cooking and found the taste quite strong & not too pleasant. Now wonder how to use it. Anyone else using Red Palm Oil in recipes/ What do you think of the flavour?

I have the same problem ( I DO want it hot) they seldom believe this white haired, white old lady. Always get the hot condiments to go with.

Hey, as a Caucasian, over 70 Sac. Bee reader, I have to say I (we) love ethnic food, particularly Asian (laos, thai) & try different things all the time.

Good Uses for Shirataki Noodles?

Not all brands smell bad & some have little to no taste.

What do you freeze in your kitchen?

Ditto on Pesto. We grow plenty of basil, make pest & freeze in 1 cup containers, great for winter.

What do you freeze in your kitchen?

I freeze mil. (in1 qt @containers) Also freshly made tomato sauce & chunky pasta sauce.. Any small leftover veg., etc. that can be used in soups. Only problem is I sometimes forget to ID them.
Forgot to mention whole over-ripe bananas for smoothies.

Favorite Pressure Cooker recipes

Thanks, Paul. That is a newer model of Clipso. I got mine on e-bay & it is the first model, probably at least 10 yrs. old. I did find the manual online, however the one you sent, even tho for a new model, was helpful. l see why people have "dissed" the recipe booklet that came with this model ( I did not get it) as only 1 or 2 seemed worthwhile.

Favorite Pressure Cooker recipes

I just bought a Tefal, Clipso cooker. It did not have thew cookbook that came with it originally. Does anyone have this pressure cooker? I would love recipes geared for it. Also, the manual does not show a couple of accessories I got with it, anyone have tips re: accessories for Clipso?
