HELP! Is this safe ?

I know what you mean about the jarred stuff. I recently tried frozen garlic cubes from Trader Joes and can recommend it, quite fresh tasting. There may be other good products that I'm not aware of. I'd do a little searching for tips before trying to freeze it. Or just get a garlic press or mini-chopper. Good luck, the dressing sounds yummy, I may have to try that combo.

HELP! Is this safe ?

I wouldn't store it that long, quality would suffer at least, and it sounds unsafe. 2-3 days maybe. I can't imagine what the objective is here. Garlic paste or frozen is easily come by or quickly mashed by knife.

All great ideas, one more is wet wipes for cleanup of fingers and such.

Try some canned chipotle pepper/sauce, also quite a nice combo.

Colcannon sounds great, and hash too. Thanks for the tip!

Thank you!

Could you elaborate on the seasoning? I'm searching for clues to a long ago dish from an Italian restaurant that served haddock breaded with a sort of garlicky vinaigrette over it.

Yes! The best with beer batter. Another good idea would be a tomatoey cioppino-type preparation. Maybe a Thai curry?

Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY - January 2015

Thanks for all the tips, everyone. I'm keeping a running shopping list of Yays to try. I ran into a couple of mehs for me, so I just take them off and add new ones. Off the top of my head, a big Yay was the beets in vinaigrette. Thanks to whoever recommended them.

Favorite Frittata for a Group?

Whatever veggies you choose, goat cheese will probably work well with. Chives for sure and garnish with chive flowers, maybe.

What to do with Mrs. Buttersworth Pancake Syrup?

I'd agree with the real maple syrup part, but the other stuff isn't fit for consumption by anyone.

5 days eating cheaply in Rome report (absurdly long)

Just read this whole report and found it excellently written. In the unlikely event that I'd ever be in Rome, I'd seek out your recommendations.

Something similar I've discovered, chop a pound of chicken (or use frozen), add to one jar of their Curry Simmer Sauce along with one bag of their frozen roasted peppers and onions, simmer til done, serve with rice. It's so healthy, easy, and good.

Fearful is funny! but i know what you mean. It's a good recipe, chunks of zucchini added works well.

Pizza dough: semolina?

I use AP flour, salt, yeast, and water, simple. Search for "no-knead pizza dough", it's awesome. The best way is to plan ahead, because after rising for one day, I divide it and store in the fridge at least a day, more if possible. I found the taste and texture of the dough much improved after 2-3 days.

perfect mexican/spanish rice

Washing off the starch and sautéing the rice is also featured in this very good recipe I've used for several years now. Yours is slightly different, but sounds good too, thanks!

What oil do you use for homemade mayo?

The last time I made mayo, it tasted heavily oily to me, and I realized I had left out the lemon juice! I use peanut oil for a neutral flavor, but I like it a bit lemony as well. Two T to one cup of oil and one egg. It really makes a difference. I also season with salt and mustard powder.

What do you put in your chicken stock to make the most flavorful soup?

I read somewhere to use only drumsticks for the the gelatin, so that's my latest simplified way. Drums, onion, carrot, bay, and s & p, good flavor and gel. I've also read about adding some ground chicken to maximize flavor, but haven't tried it. I've also added a couple of feet for gelatin in the past. An Italian friend always threw in a whole tomato from her freezer, so I have done that, too.

White Bean soup ideas? (no ham, bacon)

When I have leftover roast pork and potatoes, I make an Italian type soup with broth of choice, said leftovers, which include garlic and rosemary, diced tomatoes, white beans, and greens or broccoli. Small pasta instead of potatoes might be good, or omit them.

Bought on a whim, as I don't do too many sweets. All butter thumbprint jam cookies, yay! They're terribly addictive, hopefully they're seasonal, or I'm in trouble.
