Stand mixer - worth having?

You were the one who cited Amazon reviews. I am simply showing you that anybody can get on the internet and write a fake review for something. Hardly a reputable source.

These people write Amazon reviews too. That is not setting the bar very high.

If it is just the pouring shield that is the issue I wouldn't worry about it. I never use mine. If it is all the KA attachments like the ice cream bowl, meat grinder, etc...Then I would stay away.

Signs of a NOT Authentic Chinese Restaurant

Considering that there are over a billion people in China and most of them are destitute, authentic Chinese food means whatever the Hell they can get their hands on. Most likely rice and vegetables; not much meat.

The idea that a "Chinese" restaurant is inferior because it is not authentic is laughable.

Rice Paper Banh Mi with Five-Spice Chicken

bánh mì = bread

That is the literal translation.

Another restaurant wine pricing rant!

They may do it but it is most polite for you not to ask them.

Rice Paper Banh Mi with Five-Spice Chicken

Calling this recipe banh mi would be like calling something sushi that had no rice in it. The bread is the defining characteristic of banh mi.

This looks like a great recipe. It just isn't banh mi.

It isn't banh mi if its not on bread. Banh mi is bread...

Chipotle Workers Quit, Shut Down Store, Because That Job Sucks

If you think that working at McDonald's or Chipotle equals an inhumane work environment then you can go play victim and have your own little pity party. Just understand that there are people out there who truly are working under what the rest of the world defines as inhumane and you are making a mockery of their struggle.

Chipotle Workers Quit, Shut Down Store, Because That Job Sucks

You don't get to just throw out inflammatory words like "inhumane" then say that you define it differently than everybody else. It minimizes the struggle of those who are actually working in inhumane conditions.

Those aren't inhumane conditions. Those are typical work conditions for unskilled general labor.

These are inhumane conditions:

You don't know inhumane work conditions until you have seen the inside of a Dubai labor camp. These kids had it good.

I have more respect for this than seeing burger flippers demand $15.00 per hour.

The Tyranny of the Home-Cooked Family Dinner  

The potluck is a social gathering. What is described in this story is a feeding assembly line meant for nothing more than nourishment.

The Tyranny of the Home-Cooked Family Dinner  

And...when you show up to a potluck, I believe that there is an expectation that you have brought something. More than likely, the expectation is that you have brought something that you have cooked or prepared. Oh the tyranny.

The Tyranny of the Home-Cooked Family Dinner  

A social gathering to show communion with your fellow parishioners is a bit different then a communal feeding arrangement.

What is "real food"?

My point is that salt is not food.

Okay then, like I said above...go live on salt for six months and let me know how it goes.

Give beer and cheese pairings a try. You may never go back to wine.
