Hattie B's Hot Chicken From 'Fried & True'

Not quite clear on this basting of lard/oil & spices - do you just brush enough on to give it one coat or do you spoon it on or???

Bratwurst-Stuffed Cabbage Rolls With Smoky Bacon-Tomato Sauce

conaglio2: The bacon:-)

Bratwurst-Stuffed Cabbage Rolls With Smoky Bacon-Tomato Sauce

@dtremit5: Really? Pre-cooked at the grocer or meat market? Thats bizarre!

Cheesy, Stuffed Mexican Peppers With Red Chili Sauce

@adgxv200011: Your comments smack of to much common sense, something we apparently tossed to the wind and if you show any youre just not PC!

Chocolate Mousse and Marshmallow Icing S'mores Cake

@LetThemEatQueso11: If there wasnt public whining no comments would have followed:-)

Chocolate Mousse and Marshmallow Icing S'mores Cake

@Daemian11: Thank you for responding in a calm manner as I was going to go on a rant I would regret:-)

Grilled Cornish Hens with Lemon and Rosemary

Made these tonight for the 4th of July dinner & they came out quite good:-) Thanks Kenji!

Crispy, Crunchy, Golden Shredded Hash Browns

Recipe works well, very similar to the process Ive used for year except for the pre-cooking in the wave which I did:-)

Taste Test: The Best Caesar Salad Dressings

I've found the Marzetti Simply Dressed dressings (specifically the Blue Cheese & Ranch) to be lacking . The flavor seems stale & bland. Based on the purchase of the 2 disappointing bottles I'll pass on the Marzetti Caesar and stick with the Kens which I have had and it is quite good for a bottled dressing.

Our Search for the Best Bloody Mary Mix

Upon further investigation with Angostura I had the following exchange:

Hi Giselle - Thanks for the reply. Are there any plans to produce it in the future? Apparently its in high demand.

Yes I know, but unfortunately we have no plans to reproduce it. We have stopped doing sauces and the like and sticking to our core products – rums and bitters. You should try them also.

Thanks for your interest.
Giselle

I say if anybody has this stuff around it would be a good time to reverse engineer it and market your own version:-)

Our Search for the Best Bloody Mary Mix

@Craig_Hochscheid1: Apparently Angostura isnt making this any longer. Heres my query & their less then satisfying reply:

Hi folks - Where can I buy the angostura bloody mary seasoning? Is it still being made? I see many on the internet looking for a source of the product. Please advise. Thanks!

We have not been producing it for some time now. Thanks for your concern
Regards,
Giselle Laronde-West

@gooner: Which thread did you read? Most here arent bragging on the food and none mentions fires except you....

Pimento-Jalapeño Cheeseburgers

Thanks Kenji! I only read the recipe but the additional text makes it all come together nicely:-)

Pimento-Jalapeño Cheeseburgers

Kenji - Are we to make the pimento cheese thats linked in the ingredient list & if so why chop it? Isnt it spreadable as is from the pimento cheese recipe?

Im with you Kenji, such a FOOLE....

Cowboy Beans From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

Thanks dtremeit! Since I have no Costco near me I looked on Amazon and found the Steak Strips:-) I'll give em a try as I have bought the Kirkland jerky in the past and been happy with it.

Cowboy Beans From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

@foodlabfollower: He mentions not adding salt while soaking the beans which implies they were soaked. That said you will want to soak them either overnight or do a "quick soak" which is bringing them to boil in a pot of water then let them site for an hour, drain & use. Your bag of Pinto Beans will have various methods described on the back of the bag most likely. If you dont soak em expect much longer cooking times or tough beans!

Cowboy Beans From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

@cooking42: Same question here - what jerky is best for this as I for one dont care for O'Berto, etc. the supermarket and convenience store brands seem to be using really lousy beef these days!

The Best Grilled Hot Dogs

@wildbluehugh: Ah! Thank you for pointing me there, I simply read the recipe article, I guess I need to start to look and see if there are additional links with these recipes as Ive never done that before. I printed out the AllRecipes recipe to try here as I know we dont have those Sabrett's onions here in town ANYWHERE:-(

Sloppy Chori-Joes (Chorizo Sloppy Joes)

Sounds GREAT Kenji!

The Best Grilled Hot Dogs

@wildbluehug: What brand reccomendation did you see for theonions? I see none ecept the dogs...

The Best Grilled Hot Dogs

Oh one more thing. Both Boar's Head or Dietz & Watson dogs are pretty lousy though in my rural part of NC the ONLY natural casing dogs I can get are Boars Head which are not that good and terribly over priced! Wish I could get hold of some quality dogs like you guys in NY/NJ can, heck I even found really good ones in CA but not here in NC:-(

The Best Grilled Hot Dogs

Uh Oh - Now were going to hear from those all "freaked out" about putting sour kraught/beer, etc. in an aluminum pan:-)

An Open Letter to Serious Eaters

@Dandbuilder" Sour cream is for real people and creme fraiche is for assorted douchebags and hipsters, etc. IMNSHO!

@Kiefster: Surely you jest, Wendys is simply disgusting!

Serious Entertaining: Grilled Cheese Roll-Ups for a Crowd

I'm not going to try to pretend to take credit for this genius idea—I saw it late the other night on thefoodporn sub-Reddit and immediately knew that I'd have to make it for lunch the next day. The idea is that when you've got a few hungry mouths to feed, rather than forming a grilled cheese sandwiches in the standard shape, you instead roll the cheese up into the bread jelly roll-style before gently frying them in butter. You end up with an easy-to-pick-up, eminently dippable snack that's more fun, easier to share, and just as tasty as the more traditional version. More
