MENUDO BURRITO - is there such a creation?

The flour tortilla needs to withstand the filling. Good menudo is resistant to the bite, therefore the tortilla would be in shreds prematurely.

Same thing happened to me but they dropped it when I went to an alternate vendor. Also, when gas prices went down there was not a murmur from them.

Heck, That's more than I make. Forget tipping, They should tip me by discounting a percentage.

Jasmine rice..how to cook? Need basic tips

So simple. been cooking it daily for 20 years, never a problem in any sense. Put 2 measures dry rice in pot, add almost 3 measures of water, 3 full measures if you like it more moist. Cover pot, bring to a boil without overflowing and turn fire down to lowest simmer for 20 min....22 min. maximum. No health problems

Chicken Tikka Masala

Looks delicious. I substituted coconut cream for the yoghurt, used no butter, cream or oil and added frozen peas and carrots

Where to get my knives sharpened??

Buy a coarse/fine oblong stone. Start gently with coarse side, flip it over, then, seriously, imagine that you are the knife blade and caress it across the fine side. After a few times you will be an expert.

Where to get my knives sharpened??

For a mere $1500 you can go to Cebu in the Philippines where, on the sidewalks, there are men pedaling away on partial bicycles with knife-sharpening belts. They do a great job while you are being entertained. LOL

Indian Grocery SPICE Stores in Artesia

On Pioneer, on the left and a few blocks north of South street there are several Indian Cash & Carry markets, all of which have extensive spice shelves with almost any spice you require in different sizes. For instance, I wanted black pepper and my local stores in Long Beach were lacking in size and price. I picked a nice looking Rani 5 pound container for $24.95 and a 2 pound bag of Tea India for less than 6 bucks. Also a good variety of British specialties.

Heinz Baked Beans (UK recipe)

Our local Fresh n Easy store in long Beach, ca. has the original from England at $1.79 I bought some made in Canada but found then to be too strong and sweet . After experimenting with different recipes, I found that if you mix a can of the Heinz Canadian beans with a can of Wal-Mart navy beans, including the liquid, it is right on. Give it a bash.

VacuVita Food Saving System

Interesting, but if they are made in China forget it. We should buy American if possible

Have you ever cooked in your fireplace ?

Yes, I remember my mum would do the crumpets with lashings of butter while we all sat around the fire on a cold evening. At the same time we boys heated the horse chestnuts for drying and drilling to make conkers.
