Best chain fried chicken restaurant?

Thanks, you guys, I think you're right. I remember pretty yummy occasional buckets o chicken in the 70s (heavy sigh), but I think they are no more, alas.

Spiralizer recipes/tips/etc

I ate spiral potato fries at the fair yesterday. They were good, I'm intrigued now. Small batches would be best in order to avoid greasiness.

Best chain fried chicken restaurant?

Since everyone keeps talking about Popeyes, I went in for some lunch yesterday. It was just okay, red beans and rice - meh. Biscuit - meh. The chicken is so covered in the salty crunchy stuff, which I don't really enjoy. A nice crispy coating, yes, but this is overkill. The meat itself was pretty good. Another case of I can do it better at home, I guess. Haven't tried KFC in a long time, may try it again.

Canned Shrimp - whats your opinion?

Me, too! Just like my grandma used to make, oh she also made egg and shrimp salad sandwiches. When I was young and working evenings, one time she walked several blocks to deliver my dinner, one of those sandwiches and homemade lemon meringue pie. My coworker was impressed.

I used to buy a brand that had medium deveined, as well as small. I think the texture was better, but I can't find them anymore. Thanks for the reminder to shop around.

"Sandy" cobbler

From my mom's apple crisp recipe, which I've also used with other fruits:

Mix 1 C flour with 1/4 C brown sugar. Rub into 1/2 C butter until crumbly. Spread over fruit and pat firm. Bake at 450 for 1/2 hour. (Approximately, depending on your fruit).

Simple and similar to what you describe, I think.

Filling a lot of cups with mousse.

Ziplock type bags with one corner cut to size, and lots of hands.

OMG! Thank you for posting the pic, I hadn't seen those. Always looking for good breaded shrooms.

Just tried the bacon and pickle popcorns, NAY to both.

Food prep for the new baby

Since fruit is wonderful right now, buy as much as possible fresh at grocer or farmers markets to freeze for smoothies or apple sauces. A handful of berries, a banana, blended with some oj or coconut milk is a quick, easy nutrient blast that's also rehydrating.

Slow cooker ideas?

Chicken soup FTW! Tomato salad if you have them.

Help me with my Garlic overdose!!

It would be great to use a cup or two in a pot of zuppa Toscana or minestrone (search for Marcella Hazan's). Using it diluted a bit w/ wine or whatever to braise chicken parts, a big chuck roast, or even lamb would work very well.

Need suggestions for sides for a raw oyster party

A local oyster bar serves mignonette which has been frozen into a sorbet-like consistency. I assume they use a classic recipe to which I'd add a pinch of sugar. Very refreshing for summer.

Let us know how it turns out!

NY style salt boiled potatoes would stand up nicely to the seafood, also.

What to do with over-cooked, dried out rotisserie chicken breast?

What to do with over-cooked, dried out rotisserie chicken breast?

"If just trying to salvage it and keep it moist until you decide, I keep a apple juice vinegar stove top made wet sauce in the fridge door in an old ketchup squirt bottle. It keeps or remoistenes the meat but without messing with it as it a little sweet, a little vinegary and a bit salty and garlicy."

Hey, that sounds good, got a recipe to share?

What to do w/ canned lentils?

I used to buy an Italian brand of canned lentils at my local store, were discontinued. Maybe similar to the French variety? Smaller, greenish brown and stayed fairly firm when cooked, very tasty. I've only tried in soup with veggies, onion, celery, carrots, tomatoes, some sort of greens, etc.

What's your favorite way to prepare shrimp?

Well, that sounds excellent! I looked up the chile powder and it doesn't seem to have too much heat. May have to try it.

The best shrimp I ever had was fresh in Maz, a la plancha. I don't think it was seasoned much at all, but it was so delicious. Too bad I'm far away.
