Do you use your stove for storage ?

Yes, but it died so it has no other purpose.

Common Korean Ingredients

OK, thanks. I only have Mellow Miso, which I think is all my super market stocks so I'll add Doenjang to my order. It keeps forever, right?

Common Korean Ingredients

Is it OK to sub Miso for Doenjang? Or should I add to my Amazon order for Gochujang.

What's for Dinner #351: the Wishing & Hoping Edition

I love George Smiley, I love le Carré. I'll have to check with my library and see if they have any DVDs. It's raining and chilly today, yeah I know, poor me. WFD, Pollo a la crema with roasted poblanos, faux Mexican rice and green salad with delicious Mexican avocados I found at my local Freddy Meyers.

chickpea salad

My favorite is an old Pierre Franey recipe. Canned chickpeas, diced red onion, cherry tomatoes and/or red bell pepper, diced avocado. Dressing is olive oil, sherry vinegar, garlic and anchovy paste.

Dumb luck, or it helps if you lay the bacon on a cutting board, put the meat on top and roll so all the ends are on the same side & sear that side first.

What's for Dinner #349 - the Sub-Zero-For-Some Edition [Old]

Since there is only me I cook for one with left overs. I used half a tenderloin and I seared on the stove to brown the bacon before I baked, IIRC about 20 minutes which resulted in a lovely pink pork. I need to visit BC again, I have a craving for sausage rolls. PS I use a plastic veggie scraper.

I made the Cheater's Porchetta last month. (with Rosemary, I love it) It is indeed delicious. Weather on the So. Oregon coast is freaking gorgeous today. Doors are open, defrosted the freezer and left chicken thighs out to thaw. Haven't decided what to make.

bon appetit archive recipe

I did a quick scan of my Bon Appetits from Jan 1988 thru Dec 1992 and there is no mac & cheese dish on any of the covers. Found this one from BA Nov. 1992 on epicurious.

What to do with a can of chiles jalapeños and carrots

Eat them. A Jalapeño a day keeps the doctor away.

What's for Dinner #343 - the 2015 NFL Playoff Edition! [OLD. 1/15/15]

If I felt like driving into town today WFD would be Dungeness crab and a Duck Pond Pinot Gris, however since I don't, I'll have to settle for pork tenderloin with Oregon cranberries and a bourbon Oregon apple juice cocktail. And there will be football.

The view from the kitchen window

It's not always Bambi wandering by, sometimes it's the sight of a black bear running off into the forest with your 30 gallon garbage can clutched in it's paws.

One little food story

Yes, or wind blown. I was "across the road from" not on their property.

One little food story

I once lived by a irrigation canal that was across the road from an asparagus farm. I would go out every evening, walk the banks and cut fresh spears for dinner.

Great Recipe for Orange Cheesecake?

If I were making it I would definitely do the orange juice. I would go ahead and zest the oranges and decide after tasting whether to add or not. You can always freeze the zest if you decide not to use it. I would probably use mandarin oranges as they would be closer in size to lemons.

Great Recipe for Orange Cheesecake?

I wonder if you could use frozen orange juice concentrate to intensify the flavor, or here is one using orange marmalade. http://www.allyskitchen.com/2013/04/1...

Cranberry sauce recipes from the 90s ... I know it's a long shot : (

Bon Appetite's November issue did this for several years, so unless you know which year you had, there are going to be a lot of different cranberry sauce recipes.

That's funny, I was sitting here reading this and, guess what, I had eggs on to boil I had forgotten about. Thanks to you they have been rescued.

Best martini olives?

I buy mine at my liquor store just across the border in California. Lindsay also makes an onion stuffed olive.

Thoughts on restaurants that claim to source locally, but don't

Thank you for enlightening me. Being a left coaster where we still get wild salmon I just assumed Atlantic salmon was wild.

I don't understand the raised eyebrow. Unless they have turned the Atlantic Ocean into a ginormous farm, isn't Atlantic salmon wild?
