Breaded Veal Sandwiches

Bocci in Ville Lasalle has the most amazing grilled veal sandwich. The bread is homemade, the veal is milk fed or so it was last time I had it.

Questions for Lactose Intolerance Folks

You can be lactose intolerant which causes stomach ailments and you can also be allergic to casein.

Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving - How is your day going?

Whenever someone cooks for me I am thankful. How did your dinner go?

Veal Milanaise

I went out for lunch and ordered the veal milanaise today. It was awful. Someone please direct me to a restaurant that serves a great one and not made from grain fed or tenderized veal. The last two restaurants I went to told me it was milk fed veal but it was not and the meals were overpriced.

Can I do anything with a bottle of sweet tea flavored moonshine?

Be very careful, moonshine packs a punch. I would not drink it when offered to me but a friend drank my portion and well it wasn't pretty. I suggest you throw it out.

Cooking Woes: Always Using Too Much or Too Little Heat. It's Driving Me Nuts!!

What type of elements are on the top of your stove? Coil,or full metal elements, or induction, or flat surface elements. I had an old stove with full metal elements that only seemed to work on high or low, had trouble getting food to simmer.
If you are cooking meats, heat your pan first before adding meats, never crowd your pan as this will lower the temperature as your meats will boil. Once hot you can lower the temperature. If you butter is browning or oils are burning your pan is too hot to begin with.

Cookbook for "ELECTRIC" Pressure Cooker

I have an old book called Pressure Cooking is Pleasure Cooking by Patricia Phillips published in 1973. You might have some success with old books as it was a really popular method of cooking. My grandmother used to whack hers down when done (cringe) but she cooked many a meal in her pot.

Why Is Carla So Loud On The Chew?

Agreed it is a network show. My comment was about the overall food tv movement, nothing to watch expect contests and blabber.

Clotted Cream

The yellow crust formed on top but the dish does not look thick. I will cool it down and see!

Clotted Cream

It is in the oven at 180, 40% cream, keeping my fingers crossed.

Clotted Cream

I am wondering if it is easy to make clotted cream. Will 35% cream clot? Could it be made in the slow cooker? Has anyone ever tried clotted cream fudge? How does it compare to regular fudge?

Bitter Chili

Try some lime juice which will add some freshness to your chili and a teaspoon of sugar to offset the acidity.

Herbes de Provence - uses

I wasn't paying much attention to the lavender in HDP, I just really like it for seasoning and have bought various brands. Brands vary, some have lavender, others don't. I purchased Aux Anysetiers du Roy located at 45 Saint Germain, in Paris. The mix has thyme, basil, savory, fennel and Lavender flowers in it, in appropriate quantities.Perhaps it was from a tourist kiosque. I have also noted numerous tea brands, called Paris tea, bergamot and lavender and black tea are in the blend. Although I love lavender it has to be minimal or it can completely take over the plate. I have found the information that you have posted on this thread to be of value, I do want to learn as much as possible about French cooking.

Ground turkey for tacos and chili? Is it any good?

I use Hunt's tomato sauce with herbs and it helps to hide the taste of the turkey as the sauce overtakes the concoction. I have tried turkey in other ways just cannot do it, too dry and squeaky.

Actually they have improved. A number of years ago, they were too sweet but boxes purchased over last few years have been great. I love the orange and raspberry covered in dark chocolate. Link for muffins below:

They remind me of the muffins that Eaton's used to sell in the food court and in their restaurant.

You are very determined! You don't feel well yet you get up ever day and cook and bake. Wishing you well...

Ground turkey for tacos and chili? Is it any good?

I hate ground turkey and chicken, however, hidden in a tomato cover-up it is quite good.
