Secrets to easy kitchen cleaning?

Do people really run their dishwashers every day even if not full? Wow. We runs ours once or twice a week at most... but again, I hand wash all pots and pans and a lot of serving dishes.

Bagged lunch ideas- NO FRIDGE OR MICROWAVE!

In Japan most bentos are room temp. Rice is never refrigerated and the other things are usually salty enough to be OK for a few hours (unless it's 105 out). Things are work well are grilled salmon, chicken teriyaki, green beans, edamame, etc.

Totally. I pack room temp rice in the morning along with various leftovers (sometimes Japanese stuff sometimes not) in my bento box and it's totally fine until lunch.

What are you baking these days? Happy New Year January 2015 edition! [OLD]

Panettone in my bread machine. Found a great source for candied orange peel and after a bit of tweaking, it is turning out well each time. Using a food.com recipe for bread machines...

Soy Sauce: Dark vs. Light

I would call that dark soy sauce. Light is lighter in color (usukuchi in Japanese) and higher in sodium... I only use the standard dark soy sauce myself. The lighter one is nice if you are making something delicate and don't want a darker color, but really, I am not bothered storing an extra bottle...

Soba vs. Buckwheat noodles

Soba are buckwheat (though some are mixed with wheat). Fresh ones don't reek. I got an old batch once and they smelled awful. Some stores don't have much turnover... make sure to check the date stamped on the package as well...

Kudos to Mendy's

Hungarians make goulash--the soup--with meat, potatoes, peppers, etc. that you eat with bread on the side; there is another version often called goulash (Hungarians call it pörkölt), which is the stew with meat, veg, thick sauce, no potatoes) that is served over noodles or potatoes. Both are good and usually contain simple ingredients.

Service Dogs Get Couple Kicked Out of Restaurant

I am a life-long dog lover but would NEVER think to bring my 90 lb hound into a grocery store or restaurant. Never ever. While I love my dog, I realize that others may not or they may be allergic. It's common sense and part of being a responsible citizen. I should also say that he does not get dressed up in costumes, is always leashed when outside our property, and has better manners than most of the kids in our area. But he is a dog, and I run errands and go to work and other appointments without him.

Feeding my pescatarian non-foodie mother in law

Do you have a grill? Grilled fish and veggies is easy--just add a starch and you're set. Seared scallops/prawns are good. We grill the prawns and brush with olive oil and garlic.

Failed meringue

Most recipes specify adding the sugar once the eggs are starting to stiffen... may try your method instead...

Great braises for Shabbat - starting new thread with this recipe for Persian meatballs and Cherries in Tamarind sauce and Brown-braised Onions, because braises work so well for Friday evening

That sounds absolutely amazing--will have to try it!
