Do you have AND use a deep-fryer?

Skip the deep fryer. Get a large Dutch oven. So many other uses. Get a nice strainer and dedicate a large (very large) glass canning jar to keep the oil in.

Need a great kitchen scale, suggestions? Details in message

Love the oxo pull out

On the Beer Trail: Turbo Tasting at Tröegs in Hershey, PA

Pizza boy is great; they just moved into a new facility. BaH is still new; their grand opening is in the beginning of August but they've been doing a lot of previews/soft opening stuff this year so I have tried a lot of it. So far so good.

Next time you're in the area - def check out pizza boy brewing and the Brewery at Hershey - pizza boy is approx 20 min away from troegs - awesome food and beer; BaH is 10 min away from troegs - same location as Vineyard at Hershey. I hear there is a beer trail starting in the area too.

Brand new Lodge cast iron skillet - what to cook first?

Bacon jam and then cornbread!

Juicer?

I have the breville crush - its basically the same as the hurom. Both are good. I don't have enough experience with the new hurom smoothie juicer but I've heard it's great.

Fantastic beer at troegs and such a cool new building. Tons on wineries and new breweries in the area (well worth the trip). Loved the Vineyard at Hershey too.

Inexperienced - how to cook everything;
Quirky - homemade summer (I know it's for Christmas but that book had me drooling)

Breville Crispy Crust Pizza Maker

I just used it this weekend. I'm a part time ws employee (and occasionally have my doubts about products). This one is shockingly good. If you can't have an outdoor pizza oven, this works well. Heat up time is a bit lengthy (approx 30 minutes), but cooks fast (5-7 min). Nice crispy crust

The best gin for gimlets?

I love Hendricks. Bluecoat is also very good.

Beautiful bottle of local mint vodka... Ideas!?

I would look for one of this low sugar cucumber sodas.

Beer: Is Bigger Always Better?

Really love the large bottles. Pennsylvania has a lot of byobs so it's perfect for 2 people. It's also a great sharing option for the restaurants that have them on the beer list.

Ad-free subscription option???

It's rather annoying when looking at the mobile site. Trying to scroll then accidentally hitting the stupid ad that popped up.

Atlanta restaurant recommendation?

Staying at the intercontinental - would love places within walking distance but short cabs are fine too.

Atlanta restaurant recommendation?

Thanks! Unfortunately I'm there on business for a limited time (2 days!) so I won't have much time to reach outside of the touristy area.

If you had to eat one nationality...

I'm on the indian followed by Lebanese vote. I'd consider voting Moroccan too.

Bad wine club

Check out the brown bag wine trials book. Awesome way to find good cheap wines.

Lunch Box: Make-Ahead Curried Coconut Quinoa with Shrimp and Basil

I agree with both comments. However, already planning to swap out chicken or tofu for the shrimp. And PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make this a regular posting - my work cafe is good for fried things only and I'd like to live a bit longer than most.

Let's Get Drunk Watching: The Taste

I've been watching the show. I have also started yelling at the tv because of it. I'm a little ashamed of myself. But seriously, who decides malbec and a goat cheese fritter are a good pairing??? I mean, I love both but they are not friends.

knives and honing steels

Shun knives have a different angle than wusthof knives (15-16 degrees vs 25-26). There is a guide on the steel to ensure you are honing at the right degree. Plus, you'll prob void the lifetime warranty if you don't use a shun steel.

Gift Guide: Kitchen Gear Over $50

Le creuset has a round 6 3/4 Dutch oven for $199.95 at Williams Sonoma. Great deal compared to price of their other sizes.
