Use the Microwave to Dry Your Herbs for Long-Lasting Intense Flavor

Makes perfect sense. Not sure why I didn't make the connection when I had a roommate in college who dried "herbs" in the dorm microwave in college.

Two-Minute Mayonnaise

Made this for the first time a few months ago and it didn't emulsify.

Tried it just now since I was making a sandwich and I ran out of mayo.

It worked perfectly this time, I used vinegar instead of the lemon juice so I wonder if that made a difference.

Perfect Refried Beans

Came out great! I used the fat from Kenji's carnitas recipe instead of lard, which gave it a really good flavor.

No-Waste Tacos de Carnitas With Salsa Verde

Pretty good recipe, I checked it after 3 hours and it was pull apart tender so pulled it out of the oven. I didn't actually get that much liquid from this, just more rendered fat.

I used some of the fat to make Daniel's refried bean recipe.

This actually came together a lot quicker than I thought. I'd make this again for sure.

Hey another Whirly Pop user! I love that thing even if it is a one trick pony.

The Food Lab: The Pressure Cooker Makes Short Work of This Authentic Texas Chile con Carne

@Kenji, I'll have you know I won a chile contest with your original version of this recipe!

30-Minute Pressure Cooker Chicken With Chickpeas, Tomatoes, and Chorizo

@Yury M.

I haven't tried it with this recipe, but I did use dried chickpeas for the Tika Masala dish from last year and it worked out ok, I just added some extra liquid for the beans.

Perfect Steamed Boiled Eggs

This worked perfect. I really don't have more to add.

From the Archives: The Key to Perfect Ceviche

Love the bit about the illegal resturant walking through the back door. That happened to me once at an illegal Jamacian restruant in Milwaukee.

Thankfully the owner moved into a legit location, but it's just not the same.

Milwaukee: Steakhouse Burgers in Casual Setting at Jake's Burger

Ate here yesterday during lunch. Service was good. Really wished I read the review again before I went here instead of remembering that Lacy went here and thought it was ok.

My burger was so dry and flavorless. I got the port carmelized onions and cheese and the onions were so sweet that it threw off the flavor of the burger. Not sure I'll be back.

@Lacey: I read that artice! Totally forgot about that.

Where to Eat and Drink Outdoors in Milwaukee, 2014 Edition


I think that's everyone's first impression when taken to Barnacle Bud's for the first time.


I've never had a good experience at any of the Lowlands Group restaurants kinda annoys me that they have such nice locations. The Horny Goat Hideaway is similar too (great view, terrible service and food).

The Food Lab: How to Make Jerk Chicken at Home

I did a side by side of Kenji's and Josh's jerk recipies this weekend. Using the Bay Leaf grilling method.

The concensus among the crowd (I made it for a volleyball tournament) was that both were great. I'm kinda more partial to Josh's since it has a more spice forward flavor versus Kenji's which is more herb forward.

I'll probably use a hybrid of the two going forward, but I have extra marinade of each to use up first.

The Burger Lab: Cheese Sauce for Burgers, Fries, and Chips

I've made this several times now and if I use only cheddar, it turns out grainy for me. So I usually cut it with either American or Pepper Jack.

I once made a version with American and Pepper Jack only and added a chopped jalapeno and a can of Rotel, it was magical in taste and texture.

Smoky Chicken Tinga Tacos

Made these yesterday, delicious. I'll def. make again since the prep was pretty easy.

Pizza Poll: How Do You Like Your Sausage?

I perfer the bigger chunks. While I think their crust is terrible, I love the sasuage at Rocky Rococo's.

Manner Matters: Playing the Dating Game


I used to think the garlicky thing wasn't a big deal until I had a date last night. My date had the garlic burps all night after, kinda made talking after the movie uncomfortable.

The Best Korean Fried Chicken

Made these last night, this might be my new go to batter coating.

The Food Lab: The Science of the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Made these over the weekend, pretty good and not as fussy as I thought they would be. My only issue was that I don't think the kosher salt disolved enough so I get little bursts salt when eating them, not bad but not what I want from my cookies.

This did not stop one of my friends from eating 5 last night nor my coworkers eating the leftovers this morning!

Well made sasuage

Whole Milk Mozz

I actually stopped in GFS this weekend and picked up a block along with more bread flour than I know what to do with.

It actually made a difference in my pizza yesterday, tasted closer to a pizzeria slice than I've made at home before.

Whole Milk Mozz

I just got the Sendik's flyer today. Whole Milk Mozz is on sale this week!

Well made sasuage

Whole Milk Mozz

Yeah. The regular everyday mozzarella. I've checked Pick N Save, Woodman's, Piggly Wiggly. Everything is the part skim milk stuff, which has always worked for me, but I want to give the whole milk stuff a shot.

I'll check Target this weekend. I also haven't tried any of the higher end stores like Sendik's.

I can always check Outpost or Whole Foods too, but I just assumed that it would be available in my normal supermarket.

SE Recipe Slow Cooker Size

Can anyone tell me if the slow cooker recipes on the site a designed for a certain slow cooker size? I have a 3 qt cooker and I want to know if I need to adjust any recipes on the site.


Whole Milk Mozz

Does anyone else have trouble finding whole milk mozzarella?

I've tried multiple stores in the Milwaukee area and I can't find any.
