I am looking for suggestions for cooking in a hotel room, with limited pans, no pantry, and a small range and microwave. A slow cooker is also available. Dinners with limited ingredient lists would be best, since I do not want to buy $50 in pantry items to cook a $10 meal. Thanks!
Not being much of a baker, I realized my main use for a rolling pin is smashing things. This is handy, since I don't have a meat tenderizer and a claw hammer is overkill. What are your alternative use items?
I am in search of a decidedly ethnic dinner in Naperville on Monday night. Dives do not bother me. Excitement is good. I don't care what ethnicity, and I am adding to the challenge by eating in Naperville or a contiguous community. This is like playing it where it lies (a golf idiom seems appropriate for the 'burbs). Thanks!
I am a big fan of prepackaged Chex mix, especially the rye chips, but like a true addict I need to up the ante a bit. I am looking for that like a virgin, first-time Chex feeling, with a little more umami and salt, perhaps. And I still want my rye chips. Are there any Chexperts who can help? (And if any of your are short, German Chex therapists, that's a bonus I would appreciate for the sheer credibility of it all.)
When I read that one of the changes to SE was in the search function, I was seized by cautious optimism. Not true; I thought nothing beats the evil giant, Google. I have tested it with just a couple of topics so far against site-specific Google searches and I can tell you the SE search rocks! Good job:)
When I buy salmon, I check to be sure it's not Norwegian. When I look over my shoulder, I can glimpse the brink of my insanity (it's pretty far away by now). I am all for ads, which pay Kenji's salary and Hambone's vet bills, but I have come to hate the roll-over ads on SE. How about ads that load when the cursor hovers for a few seconds, so my fat-fingered trackpad enthusiasm does not drive me to drink? Anyone else?
I feel a lot less guilty about the new crop of dandelions in my yard now that I have battled back by eating a few, wilted in bacon grease and white wine vinegar. I think the morning may bring a dandelion bud omelet. Any other ideas?
