Chocolate Chip Birthday Cake with Bananas and Dulce de Leche

Hi ljamunds.

"Fill the bill" is actually the original phrase. Over time both phrases have become acceptable.

Chow vids

Hi kcward.

I was able to reproduce what you're seeing--we'll look into it.

In the meantime, kpaxonite's suggestion is a good one. Here's our YouTube channel:

"Back" button, still not working right.

Because it's an inconsistent issue (i.e., we can't always reproduce it on our end), it's more difficult to troubleshoot, but we are looking into it.

Is there something going on with the site for iphone again?

Hi DGresh.

On any page on the site, you should see a red square at the top left with three white horizontal bars. That's the mobile "drawer": Click on that and you'll see your username, along with other options for navigating the site. Click on your username and that will take you to your profile page. Once on your profile page, there will be a shaded bar near the top with your avatar, username, and an arrow at the right. Click the arrow to expand the navigation for sections of your profile page. Hope that helps!

Viewing a Hound's profile on mobile?

Hi Kris.

All of that profile info lives in the right sidebar on desktop. On mobile, we don't display the right sidebar, which means unfortunately that user bio info is not available on mobile (for the rest of the site, the right sidebar contains ads and related content). Profile pages are on our list of things to improve though.

Thanks for the feedback.

Link to a removed SPAM discussion listed as a RELATED suggestion

The content on the site is reindexed twice a day, so unfortunately some moderated threads will slip through and show up for a time under Related. We're working to improve this process. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Thanks mcsheridan, I finally got a glimpse of that myself on the thread proposing a new Canning/Pickling/etc board. We'll take another look.

Is anyone still seeing the moderated thread about pasta in the Related module? If so, could you take a screen shot and post here? Thank you!

An additional "back button" problem

We've seen this occasionally ourselves, but because it's intermittent we've yet to be able to diagnose it. We'll continue investigating. Thanks for the reports.

Should be fixed in all cases--there was a database update run last night.

Curried Cauliflower, Chickpeas, and Tofu

I'm not generally a fan of cauliflower, but this dish is a winner.

multiple log-ins required on iPad

We've had reports of issues with the browser back button as small h mentions here, but because it's intermittent we've been unable to track down the cause so far.

GretchenS, you might try clearing the cache in Safari. Deleting all of the history and cookies might reset things and clear up the sign-in issues.

Recipes and videos

Hi JoeJ58.

Is this the video you're referencing?

http://www.chow.com/videos/show/youre...

If so, the recipe is indeed linked in the description copy. Here's Kir Jensen's recipe:

And here's CHOW's adaptation of her recipe:

Android vs. PC--Threads Not Updating?

Hi kaleokahu.

We're seeing the same content on your thread on both PC and Android--not sure why it got hung up on your device. Let us know if you continue to have trouble.

how to see MY threads?

Hi NYchowcook.

As Caitlin mentioned, if you click on your avatar it'll take you to the My Followed Discussions page of your profile, which lists all threads you've participated in or chosen to follow.

There's also the Posts page of your profile, which shows the last 30 posts you made on the site:
