Saw on another message board that a person was unsure if they should throw out VERY EXPENSIVE steaks left in a hot car for over 4 hours. Do you think it would be safe to cook and eat tose steaks? She presumes it is over 100F in the car.
My husband went to Tuft's University about 100 years ago (well, like 20 years ago) and he still talks about a pizza he used to get while in school.
I don't know the name of the restaurant, but it was close to campus and his order was always garlic, extra garlic. It was a white pie, that much I know.
Now we live 1000s of miles away from the area and his birthday is coming up and I'm hoping to surprise him with a pizza for his birthday. I'm pretty good at the dough, but I'm wondering if anyone might have any ideas how I can recreate this pizza of his memories.
We're going to be in the UK in June and we are trying to think of something different we can do with our children.
My husband thought a trip to Cadbury world might be fun. Our children are 3 and 5 and the trip would be almost a 3 hour drive to get there.
Is it worth it? We will not be back in the UK for many years, so this would be our one time to do it.
I live overseas (Budapest) and my supply of kosher salt has run out. The stores that I have been to, from your local CBA to the high end gourmet and specialty, carry a vast array of salt. I've even come across Viking Smoked Salt. But no kosher (kóser in Hungarian) salt.
I've been really looking forward to making the Momofuku recipe for Bo Ssam for some friends and have tracked down all of the ingredients at various Asian markets here but no luck with the salt for the first step of the recipe.
The recipe calls for a dry brine combining 1 cup of kosher salt with 1 cup white sugar.
What other salt could I use? I can get sea salt pretty easily and of course regular table salt. Does anyone have any ideas?
I am traveling to the UK this week to visit a friend and we are going to attend a potluck village party in honor of the royal wedding.
I am supposed to bring something to the potluck (I get to the UK on Wednesday so I will have time to shop and make something) and have been asked to bring something "Canadian" (as I am Canadian).
What should I bring? Maple syrup is crazy expensive here, so anything with Maple is out.
I am currently living in Budapest and for Easter it just wouldn't be the same without some ham on the table.
A trip to the market, a fumbling with Hungarian and English stilted phrasing and I have returned home with a smoked "thigh" with a lot of the fat and skin still attached. It is a small piece of meat, no more than 3 lbs and boneless.
It is very marbled and quite dark in color (I am thinking it is quite smokey), and I am wondering how should I cook it? Any ideas? I would love some help with this one.
I got a lovely bone in pork loin roast at the Farmer's Market and I want to roast it up for Sunday dinner. I am also making mexican street corn for my husband (by request). Anyone have any recipes or ideas for the roast so that the two go together? Also, what else should I serve?
So it looks like I'm going to be doing the expat thing in Budapest. My dh got a job there and we'll be moving there in a few weeks/months (not sure yet).
Does anyone have an knowledge or advice about what markets, cooking etc. is like there? What should I expect to not see in stores over there that I've gotten used to in New York?
I love to cook and am kind of nervous and excited at the same time.
I made some delicious strawberry-lavender-lemonade yesterday. To my palate the balance of sweet-sour was spot on. To my husband's sensitive stomach it was way too acidic. We tried adding more ice and water, but he said that just took away the flavour.
Is there such a thing as a low-acid lemonade? My husband likes to drink low-acid orange juice, I'm wondering if there is an equivalent or a way to doctor my own low-acid lemonade.
Is he doomed to just watch me and the kids enjoy the lemonade?
I'm looking for ideas under $250 for a gift for my husband who is a huge food fan. His favorite food (as common as it sounds) is bacon of all kinds.
What would you give to a food fan? What would you like to receive?
My sister is a huge foodie and is coming for a visit. I want to take her some great spots for retail for a foodie fan. Does anyone have some recommendations in New York city for great stops (not restaurants) for a food fan?
After almost 11 years in New York City (and area) my husband and I are leaving this summer.
We're compiling a list of places and things we want to see and do before we go and we were thinking "where do we want to eat??"
So my question New Yorkers: where would you make sure you ate if you were moving very far away from the city?
Anyone have any ideas for nibbles I could serve at a party that are 50s in theme? The party is during the day, so it is not a cocktail party though I do plan on serving Bloody Marys.
I'm looking for stuff that is delicious and edible but def has that retro feel as I'm hosting what is basically a Tupperware party for a good friend and we want to play up the kitsch of the whole thing.
I am making a goat cheese tart and it calls for herb goat cheese. I only have reg goat cheese, but I have some fresh herbs: thyme, rosemary, sage, tarragon and basil.
Which combo of herbs should I use?
I'm invited to a brunch potluck next week and the hostess asked me to bring something savory. I'm at a loss. Any ideas of something I can bring that is transportable?
Can I put frosting on top of fondant? Working on an idea for a birthday cake...
I am visiting family in a remote location and wanted to make a pulled pork dish that I always make at home, but of course I forgot to bring my stash of smoked paprika, something that makes the dish in my opinion.
Of course the limited supply of grocery stores here do not have smoked paprika, I can use normal paprika I know, but how can I add that nice smokey flavour? I saw liquid smoke at the grocery store yesterday, would that work?
Any other ideas? Thanks so much!
Any tips for the big apple bbq festival? My husband is going this weekend for the first time with a fastpass. Should he go early or later?
Was invited to a summer bbq this coming weekend. Asked if I could bring anything, hostess said no. Then she sent an email to me this morning not only asking me to bring a dessert, but to make something very particular. I could see a request for something particular if it is something I am known for (ie "Mary, please bring your delicious cheesecake!") but the hostess has asked me to bring something I have never made before that is of a specific ethnic origin that I am unfamiliar with (not hostess ethnicity but theme she is going with for the bbq).
I think this is rude. Should I just suck it up and make the dish? What would you do?
We're hoping to head out on Mother's Day and a search here found plenty of guides for the uninitiated, but no note on if they are around on Sundays as well as Saturdays.
Does anyone know if the food vendors are open on Sunday? Thanks.
I'm looking for a source for interesting and delicious low cholesterol recipes. Stuff that is easy to make on a day to day basis. Anyone have any favourites?
My mother was visiting me a couple of weeks ago and we were watching some Food Network shows (Tyler's Ultimate, Barefoot Contessa etc). She made the comment that they used way too much salt.
I laughed her off, but I have noticed that if I follow recipes to a T from some cooks from tv they are too salty and I have to reduce the salt. For example Ina Garten's Truffle Mac and Cheese called for a Tablespoon of salt on top of the salty cheese.
Do you think they are using too much salt on tv cooking shows? Do you think it is just for theatrics?
Can I substitute bread flour for all-purpose flour in a muffin recipe?
I have two friends and their husbands coming in from out of town to NYC and we want to eat out. Since I'm a mom I don't get out much anymore and when I do I always seem to end up at Little Giant on Orchard Street. I want to try something new (especially since I am springing for a sitter).
What restaurant would you recommend for a group of six that is not too expensive (we're artist types with at least one unemployed husband) that has great food and is downtown-ish.
I think I saw it on here, but I can't remember. There was a blog or website featuring recipes that can be made cheaply.
Does anyone remember what it was called, or does anyone have another one to recommend?
