Ezekiel Bread

Looked up where to purchase Ezekiel 4:9 Bread around College Park. "Most" places have Food for Life items in the freezer, but Fresh Market/Annapolis sold it on the shelf in a plain wrapper with a paper label inside. Totally different packaging; does FM bake their own ?

Why cook yoghurt?

Don't think of it like broken milk or cream. "We" have been cooking with yogurt ever since "we've" been milking goats.

Indian Pickles in Saveur

In the latest issue of Saveur, there is a full page on pickles. In the fourth column, third row, the 'condiment' resembles something I was served at an Indian joint on M street in DC many years ago. All I could afford was a bowl of onion soup, and with it came 'flat' bread and a monkey dish of this pickle. It was kind of harsh (read: full flavored) only because I was unaccustomed to it. I devoured it. Any thoughts ?

Favorite oyster recipes?

Make a large (lump)charcoal fire. Dump oysters on grates. If right handed; canvas glove on left, cheap dull dinner knife on right. Grill till PARTIALLY open. Pry open, (add 1 DROP favorite condiment), consume. Repeat, and often, till done.
Make another fire, repeat.

Summer veggie dish for a crowd?

Did a version of ratatouille- fired up the charcoal grill and did a simple french vinaigrette, marinated: 1 radicchio quartered, 1 med. thick sliced eggplant, 1 zucchini and yellow squash sliced length wise and cored, 2 bunches scallions. Grilled them fairly well. Let rest, then sliced and/or cubed. Toss with; 1 yellow beet(trimmed and sliced)and 1 pint cherry tomatoes(oven roasted together 1 hour), 2 T. toasted slivered almonds, 1-2 T. chop 'fines herbs' and a couple smashed garlic cloves. S/P. Into a LIGHTLY oiled Pyrex, bake 45-60 minutes and serve. The next day, chopped up the cold leftovers, spread on a baguette, and a little parm and toasted. Insane...

Okay... I gotta ask, if anyones attempted this.

And after you're done "cleaning " these pans, you are going to cook something, and then eat it ? Maybe cook for your family, or friends ? There are so many other safer options....

Japanese food in Beijing

I can't help but remember leaving Jasper and Lake Louise, and spending the night in Revelstoke. Finally my in-laws are ready for dinner (like herding cats), and when asked what they would like for dinner,in the middle of the Canadian Rockies, the sisters all said SUSHI !

PCB dinner with a view ?

Will be at the beach in 2 weeks with my wife and her sister(who will be on crutches). Any restaurant(casual, no 'meat markets')with a decent sunset/view, or any similar visual attractiveness will suffice. Thanx

Panama City Beach for a few days

Is there anything out of the ordinary in the area? Maybe like an old smoke house, gadgets, or a line on sea urchin, what ever. Thanx

Has anybody installed a charcoal grill in their kitchen?

At this hotel in FLA, I put to fire 75 lb.s of Mesquite lump charcoal every night in a large kitchen with a full hood system. A large 'Montrose' brand grill, my meat thermometer would read 128 degrees sitting in my breast pocket. I only noticed a difference when we were forced to use Kingsford Briquettes ONE night. Rank. Putrid. Briquettes are made from 'tree' mulch that sits in huge lots composting until it's pressed and cooked. What better way to start off a meal than by dousing them now with lighter fluid. mmmm
(raw) Lump charcoal is the way to go, add a charcoal chimney...Just don't skimp on the ventilation.

Good non-toxic, grain-free things for a puppy who is teething to chew on?

Start with the 'Bully Springs', they're fairly light and break down quicker than leather. Smell is not an issue. They're cheaper on-line in bulk, but pay attention to the country of origin. Start sourcing for a whole raw beef shank bone. Danes need that cartilage.

Blue cheese dressing recipe?

At this hotel I worked in the Keys, we put 1 five lb. bag of crumbles on a sheet pan and baked it for 15-20 minutes, and combined that with another cold bag of crumbles, plus 5 (?) gallons mayo ,ect....The kicker was the melting cheese as the base.

Home made salad dressing that lasts

It's easy ! Just take a packet of Wishbone Salad Dressing Mix and pour it into the handy-little carafe that you got free with your S and H Green Stamps. Next, carefully pour vegetable oil to the first line on the carafe, then pour white vinegar to the second line. Shake well, then pour over your iceberg lettuce, and you're set ! Thanks for the memories Mom....

Hair found in the food...

A story relayed to me about a table of eight getting the same soup as the first course. One person found a roach in their bowl. Horrifying at best, but every one else were relived that their's were 'safe'. But as my friend said, it's like a bay leaf, if one person gets one, everybody gets one.

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

THANK YOU !

What's So Wrong About Not Lliking ..... ?

Was fixing fresh biscuits, whipped cream, and strawberries for my In laws dinner and offered my brother-in-laws girlfriend a beautiful strawberry. She declined. I pursued, asking about allergy's. She said no, just didn't like the texture...It must really suck to have such parameters, but then you wouldn't know then would you ?
