I don't get it, nothing new, they've been selling in them in the summer for years, just a seasonal thing.

You get what you pay for.

Costco Food Finds - 3rd Quarter 2015

They carried it last year at my Costco, will check the next time I go. I don't think it's a permanent item.

I liked it.

can you use whole eggs to make zabaglione or sabayon

If you use the whites, you'll end up with flavored scrambled eggs. I save the whites and add them to my next egg based breakfast meal.

Unfortunately, Cowboy consists of mostly soft woods. It does look like a lot of lumber yard scraps.

When do you just toss it?

Feed the dog with it.

Costco Food Finds - 3rd Quarter 2015

Here in MA & NH, the blueberries, peaches and watermelons are excellent. I've had the CA peaches for the last 3 weeks, they're the free stone variety and large, 10 peaches which is 5 pounds, and sweet. The blueberries, 4.99 for 2 pounds, are from NJ, again some nice large berries and tasting very good. Water melons are 4.99 and gigantic. I love summer !

I avoid oranges as they are out of season, plus there's too much good stuff in season right now.

Tri-Tip

Cook fat side up till internal temp hits 115-120F, if you want a juicy mech-rare center, wrap with foil and let rest for 20 min.

Remember a T-Tip has a thin tail end that will cook faster than the thicker part. It will be med-med well.

mixing chocolate ganache with zabaglione together? ?

Maybe trying a very small test batch is the best approach. That way you won't waste valuable ingredients.

The ganache maybe too heavy for the zabaglione and sink it.

Making dates taste better

You might like to try figs fresh or dried, you may have some good luck with them. The fresh figs can be stuffed with goat cheese, wrapped in proschuitto and grilled. real tasty.

Picky eater

Grape leaves, one of my favorites. Hummus. Meatballs or sausages with pickled peppers?? Maybe some nice dry cured Italian cold cuts with a crusty stick of bread. Imported cheeses.

Hope he doesn't revert to wearing diapies!

LOL, same for me. My jar must be 3 yrs old +/-, just not cooking that type of chow lately.

Costco Food Finds - 3rd Quarter 2015

Well, it's full on summer. Plenty of heat, humidity, school vacations and family fun.

Lately, I've seen some nice looking summer fruit at my Costco. I really look forward to the summer months for great selections of produce as well.

Also, the seafood roadshows have been excellent with giant king crab legs, scallops, shrimp and whole red snapper and other whole fish offerings.

I hope you all find and post some of your experiences at Costco this summer.

40th bday dinner?

I'm sure, if it's to be a surprise, that there will be some sort of co-ordination and pre gathering time for all to be there together.

Do You Lick or Bite?

In the summer, I really enjoy creamy homemade ice creams and gelato's on a crisp sugar cone. Depending on the firmness of the ice cream, I like to bite my ice cream, then when it gets to the top rim on the cone I lick for a while then finish the cone off in bites saving the end tip of the sugar cone for that last crisp bite.

On the contrary, if I'm eating ice cream from a container, I like to scoop the soft somewhat melted areas from the side of the carton, it tastes so much more creamy to me.

I also like to bite ice cream bars, like fudge cycles and cream cycles. I even enjoy biting ice cubes from my drink glass!

So are you a licker or a biter?

Do you count the number of licks you take?

Post on!

Oils and food sticking to pan

It's not the oil, it's generally the heat of the pan. Some oils have higher 'smoke points' than others. Depending on the application and flavor I want, I'll use EVOO or Veggie Oil.

Musty flavor in organic honey

'Organic', where the heck do you think honey comes from a bee robot? Plus not sure how someone can control what flowers bee's land on.

I only buy 100 % pure honey from the USA. Keeps it real easy.

For size and value, I like Costco's rotisserie chicken.

I agree, CC and FN are a bunch of crap.

My last resort in PBS on Saturday.
