Piquillo Peppers Stuffed With Tuna and Aioli: Proof That Canned Foods Can Be Delicious

Trader Joes used to carry the best jarred Piquillo Peppers. They discontinued the product about 3 years ago. Why?, couldn't get them anymore. Everyone has their favorites at Trader's. My shopping there is limited. Sardines in water, raw almonds, pumpkin ice cream during the fall, and the now defunct Piquillo Peppers.

What the heck is that white stuff in the colander? Echh!

For the Deepest, Darkest Chocolate Ice Cream, Add Cocoa Nibs

We do make our own ice cream from time to time, I'll try the nibs next time.
I usually put my nibs in with my oatmealwhile it's cooking in the morning, along with chia seeds, raisins, cashews, and dates.
You article reminded me when I used to but a lot of Askinosie bars. https://askinosie.com/shop-chocolate.html

Where to Buy Amazing Tea Online

You know, this topic and the above comments made me rethink tea AND how I was brewing my Dragonwell that I bought a while back. After communicating with Verdant by email after prior research, and ordering their 5 for 5 intro special, I realized I was very naive about teas. No longer is it three large tbls of dragon well in my press with about 20 ozs of water steeping for 3 minutes. Now its 6 oz of water with 5 grams of tea steeped for 10 seconds. Then go 6-10 more rounds with 6 more oz of water resteeping the same tea leaves with a few added seconds each round.
Thanks Max for this article that sent me on a journey.

Kenji's Best Fast Food Awards (A Totally Biased, Completely Incomplete List)

To engage in fast food,
I must be in the mood,
Devoid of enzymes and minerals,
It is a food that is on the peripheral.

Kenji's Best Fast Food Awards (A Totally Biased, Completely Incomplete List)

Kenjison: I forgot to mention, that based on the nutritional content as posted by Popeye's, the sandwich and the sauce had 2450 mg of sodium ( FDA rec daily 2400) 34 grams of fat, 800 calories, and 61 grams of carbs.

SSAIB-that's the size of the burger, in inches.
Kenjison: I just bought Popeyes's spicy chicken po'boy.
It was fun eating it, $3.99 sandwich only, and your fault that I ate it (and I got the blakened ranch sauce).

Kenji's Best Fast Food Awards (A Totally Biased, Completely Incomplete List)

You said-" getting decent grub at lightning speed and reasonable prices".
So I'm thinking when I was 23, I raced across the United States in my Stuttgart made Capri from Los Angeles to Long Island in 76 hours. I got to know Stuckey's very well. I needed food at lighting speed. So unless your speed was similar justifying stopping by these places, I never would. Unless of course, there is a financial motive.

Tiki's Hollywood Origins and the Woman Behind It All

Tiki Ti in Los Angeles has the best tiki drinks in town, if you can handle the cigarette smoke. Gov't allows it under certain grandfathered regs. ( owner must also be a server, etc.).

How Cereal Became the Quintessential American Breakfast

@justeatit, you and your comment are really, really stupid.Every commercial, every ad, and many articles are promoting something.
Hope you one day you will be forced eat dog food. You will then begin to think about your comment. And by the way, move out of your mother's basement.

How Cereal Became the Quintessential American Breakfast

I do buy the big double box of Cherrios. Why?
Because at any time of day, as well as at 10pm sometimes, I pour some in a bowl, with l.f. milk or almond milk, with a big tablespoon of maple syrup from Vermont or NY.
Nothing is better.

Why Dip it? Put Spinach and Artichoke Dip Inside Pierogi Instead

And in case you may want another version, a Ukrainian pyrohy (pierogi), try
Veselka,144 2nd Ave, New York, NY . This is a very good Ukrainian restaurant. Across the street is East Village Meat Market, which has the best Ukrainian kobasa.

Easy Spiced Basmati Pilaf

My wife and I prepare 1 1/2 cups of dry rice for dinner almost every day.
It depends on the diet of foods one consumes I guess.

Should You Really Only Cook With Wine You'd Drink? The Truth About Cooking With Wine

When you go to the non tourist small restaurants in a variety of Italian cities, you get the house wine. This wine is usually, in my opinion better than wines that cost 4 times as much. Same in France, where a typical family starts wine drinking at 8am with a white sec that's in the fridge.

Back to Italy. Although I have many expensive ( more than $40.00 per bottle) wines that I keep and should drink, I was always looking for that red to replicate that inexpensive great tasting daily wine I found in Italy. I did find it.

It is Gallo Hearty Burgundy. Big bottle, about $6.00 (six). And, it's great to cook with. The whites, Char and Sav Blanc, are great to cook with as well.

Re-Introducing Soubise: The Classic Three Ingredient Onion Sauce That Deserves a Comeback

I'm always looking for a new sauce. This one is new to me.
Thank you for the recipe.
It will go well over potatoes as well.

Our Vegan Month Progress, Week 4: Temptation, Cheating, and What We've Learned

Tofu is a "processed" food, as a variety of coagulants are used in it's manufacturing, e.g. calcium chloride, calcium sulfate,or magnesium sulfate.
Owcowboy is a bit excitable, but that's ok.
I am 90% vegetarian. I eat animal protein on Easter and Christmas, and I need my grass fed butter, infused with shallots, parsley, and dill on my steamed golden potatoes. Olive oil doesn't make the cut on steamed potatoes.

I also stray a few other times of the year.

Our Vegan Month Progress, Week 4: Temptation, Cheating, and What We've Learned

It is always easy to comment on vegan, vegetarianism, carnivourism, etc. where there is abundance. Alaskan natives of yesteryear could not plant vegs, so they ate seal, and whale. The people of the eastern european steppes had plenty of whole wheat and other fresh vegs, so the one cow they had was kept for milk. In Finland, elk was it, and some moss and grasses. Today, when starvation hits an area, the thought isn't should I eat this, but it's how fast can I eat this.

Now, ships and trucks bring vegs to many of the prior veg. free places. At a higher price of course.

Our Vegan Month Progress, Week 4: Temptation, Cheating, and What We've Learned

I was a vegan for a long while. I could have remained one if I had a full time chef/cook. Cooking vegan is a pain. Even eating out as a vegan is a pain.

How to Make Chinese Steamed Whole Fish for Your Lunar New Year Feast

My original point/question was that in the above article you wrote, you never mention HOW to steam the fish. I, and maybe others like me, have never steamed a whole fish. By looking at your pictures, I was trying to figure it out.

New Best Pizza in Los Angeles

I now have had the best ny style cheese slice in Los Angeles.I been to most places in LA and this is the best. 9th Street Pizza, in downtown LA, near the fabric district. Great crust,and taste.Just like getting off the subway at Penn Station and getting a slice at the various pizzarias.
Also, Pizzarito, in Marina Del Rey, is a close second.
