7-Layer Buffalo Chicken Dip

@Daniel Zatkovich: Its rich for sure, we had a big lunch so this was dinner for my wife and I & theres a bunch left! That said its an excellent recipe!

7-Layer Buffalo Chicken Dip

Is dry Ranch seasoning something like "hidden Valley" dressing mix or a seasoning I have yet to come across?

Rich and Flavorful Guinness Beef Stew With Potatoes

275 degrees? Really? I usually do stews, etc. @325. I went ahead and followed the recipe to a T and after the allotted time the beef is still tough as well as the potatoes!

The Comfort Food Diaries: It's More Than Just a Turkey Sandwich

The best part about holidays when turkey is served is the sandwich from the leftovers the next day:-)

Crispy Braised Chicken Thighs With Cabbage and Bacon

@leejay: When Serious Eats ceased support of their own "recipe file" I switched to PepperPlate but they are having issues with the new Serious Eats webpage layout (I still use it and click the link in PepperPlate to get back to the Serious Eats page). I really wish these 2 could get together and fix this properly. There were other alternatives mentioned in this thread:

The Comfort Food Diaries: There's Safety in Sardines

@Copperkettle218: apparently youre part of the eco terrorist squad, figures.

The Comfort Food Diaries: There's Safety in Sardines

@Copperkettle218: Maybe in a case or 2 but certainly not all. Making blanket statements doesnt forward your position around thinking folks. Heres one great example of government overreach along with enviro terrorists such as the Sierra Club, plenty of good info here on one such company.

Its places like along with the feds who helped put the West Coast canneries out of business!

The Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Kaeleku: Sounds like you have a solution to your issue. I think people may be having issues due to the brand or dryness of the torts themselves. You also may want to try flour torts which I personally prefer.

The Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

@Kaeleku: Lots of people have made this with great success! (I have made it multiple times myself & my picky family likes it & I loved it!). Just because one has a recipe doesnt mean they will have success just as just because one has an auto repair manual doesnt mean they can repair a vehicle. Just my 2 cents...

The Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

@andreanickas: Ive made these several times and theyre great! If your worried about the torts getting soft just wait till the day youre going to cook them to pour the remaining sauce over them then cook & youll be fine.

The Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

@KR2005: You should have no issue with either of those, I used the flour torts myself and they were great!

Reality Check: We Try Wendy's New Spicy Chipotle Sandwiches

A ton of jalapenos is probably the only way they could get one to eat the disgusting mystery meat they use at Wendys thee days!

Can Cinder, the World's Most Precise Griddle, Replace Sous Vide?

@Jim Reich: And I'll ask the question that nobody else has - what country are you going to manufacture the Cinder in?

Whole-Grain Spelt Salad With Leeks and Marinated Mushrooms

@Daniel Gritzer: Thanks Daniel, yes I made this the other day and cooked the Spelt then finished the salad the next afternoon. Interesting grain which I had never tried before and a good salad to boot:-)

How does this hold up if made the day before? Any input is appreciated.


Japanese-Style Fried Chicken Thighs (Gluten-Free Karaage)

Anyone whos used the potato starch before have any idea on why it wouldnt brown up nicely? I fried it up per instructions but the coating had some white areas from un-browned starch:-(

Chicken Vindaloo Burritos

Any good substitute for the paneer cheese? No way Im going to find that in rural NC:-(

New Orleans-Style Olive Salad

@KevinZ: Where did you come up with that? If youre talking about pressing the sandwich after making the olive salad you dont need 40LBS:-) A couple of bricks would work well but if you want to put a sack of cement on it and keep it cold you would want to have a walk in refer.

The Food Lab's Buttermilk Biscuits

PepperPlate still not functioning with the new layout of Serious Eats:-(

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail (Coctel de Camarones)

I just e-mailed PepperPlate & let them know theres an issue - maybe if everyone does the same they will fix it?


Hopefully theyre working with Serious Eats to fix this issue:-)

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail (Coctel de Camarones)

Recipe sounds great but is anyone else having issues getting the recipes with the new site layout into PepperPlate to save them?

Teriyaki Burgers

@donnataj: In the burger world we would consider that a meatloaf:-)

A Better Big Mac

For those who care the Maggi seasoning sauce is currently being made in CHINA by Nestle! (says so right on the bottle) I was thinking if it was just for color Id use some Kitchen Bouquet but from the comments its a yeast compound were looking for so I guess I'll have to buy some Marmite.
