Worst Pizza I ever bought

Inedible. Thick doughy non-crust. Raw bacon and raw crunchy green peppers on top. Cold mushrooms not even browned, Tasteless. Weirdly spiced sauce. I could not eat this pizza and was very diappointed because the overall ambience and the staff were wonderful.

Corned beef... oven or stove?

I abandoned the boil or steam method years ago.

The meat should be dry rubbed before roasting of course. And it should have a nice char and an interior redness when done. Slice as thin as you can with your best knife.

The leftover beef, cabbage, potatoes can be mixed up with chopped onions and green peppers and fried the next day also. Make a pan sized patty. Fry in butter until golden then flip and do the other side.

Roast the corned beef so the flavor does not get diluted. Cook the cabbage and make some mashed potatoes separately. The best!

Cheap Eats NYC Trip Report

The Marseille. 44th and 9th Avenue, NYC.
Really nice evening sitting at one of the outside tables on a beautiful night. Onion soup, hangar steak, really GOOD fries, and chocolate custard for dessert. Proseco and a nice Napa valley wine along with it.

ROAST the beef like any other meat. Boiling in water dilutes the flavor. keep a small amount of water in the roasting pan to keep the meat from drying out, but you want a nice black char on the meat just like any good beef roast. the fat should be yellow and crisp. Slice thin and make sandwiches on a good rye bread or serve with boiled cabbage and potatoes.

Seeking recipe approximation of Golden Bird fried chicken

Its important to let the coated chicken pieces air dry for at least a 1/2 hour before frying. I also use a portable hair dryer to GENTLY speed up the drying process. i believe this removes the moisture that causes the meat to boil instead of frying crisply in the oil but whatever the reason the chicken is very crisp and much tastier.

Cheesy Enchiladas

I like that tortillas are so cheap these days. A couple bucks for a large stack.
