I love that green ice cream cone serving dish!
Great idea! Can't wait to try it. Can I make a big batch and freeze these? Maybe before the baking stage?
I'm all for Spaghetti Carbonara Day!
Thanks for this great post Max! This + a night session at the US Open sounds like a perfect day for me.
This would go great with some pepperoni pizza knots in a cast iron pan.
My mother will purposely over order for herself so she'll have leftovers for another meal. If there's an 8 ounce steak and a 14 ounce steak, she'll order the 14 ouncer. I gently told her this is fine if she or my dad is paying, but when someone else pays it looks bad.
I use a wooden spoon handle to make "thumbprints" in Thumbprint cookies that will later be filled with jam or chocolate.
Some friends told me their grandmothers use wooden spoons for hitting people, but I won't go there.
I can't help but see the opportunity to make a "Salty Pimp" a la Big Gay Ice Cream
I actually discovered Serious Eats through Robyn!
Best wishes and I hope this isn't the last we'll hear from you!!
Cheap plastic pitchers. It's a good thing.
I'm going to miss pictures of Robyn dancing.
Good luck on your move Kenji!
Goodbye security deposit, hello Wok Hei!
Curse my square waffle iron! Oh who am I kidding I'm still making this.
Do you prefer to visit a restaurant when it first opens or do you prefer to go after it's been open for awhile and found it's legs?
@Breezycooking I didn't realize the story wasn't on the website! In "Cooking For Mr Latte" Amanda Hesser tells a story about when she was a kid her dad was really sick and before he died her aunt came over to take care of her and her siblings. They didn't have a lot of money so the aunt shaped the meat loaf into a lobster shape to amuse the kids, hence the name "Mock Lobster". She described the meatloaf as being really buttery and rich which is why I want to try making it.
I've always wanted to try making Amanda Hesser's "Mock Lobster" http://www.nytimes.com/recipes/1773/aunt-noras-mock-lobster.html
On Thursday night The Big Bang Theory celebrated Star Wars Day and Raj opened "Admiral Ackbar's Snack Bar" that had:
- Cafe Au Leia
- Chai Tea-3PO
- Attack of the Scones
I was on a streetcar in Toronto and the guy in front of me was having a long discussion about Dominique Ansel and cronuts, followed by cookie milk shots, then wafflegatos. He then went on a rant about Montreal bagels. He may have been wearing a tweed jacket, a bow tie and tortoiseshell glasses. It made me question my life and how other people might see me.
Magnolia Bakery! The banana pudding is good, but the cakes and cupcakes are atrocious! I've had them twice and both times it tasted like someone baked them a couple days ago. You'd think with the crazy line ups there would be high turnover and everything would be relatively fresh! Or maybe because of the crazy lines they do all the baking well in advanced.
Should have seen the warning signs when I walked in close to opening (no line up yet) to see the layer cakes were already missing a third-half a cake's worth of slices.
I don't normally like beer but I like wheat beers. It's the bitter hoppy flavour I don't like!
I use plastic for raw food, and a wooden cutting board for things that are cooked/eaten raw.
I say pick a theme, i.e. Lemon, Chocolate, Blueberries, and make lots of small desserts based on the theme. Maybe, a creamy dessert, a tart/sour dessert and a cookie/biscuit.
Please let me know if you find a recipe that works! I get headaches when I eat large amounts of red food colouring in red velvet cake.
I used to think reactions like this were psychological until one day I got a massive headache and had no idea why and someone commented that my tongue was red from eating red velvet cake!
I once had french toast at a coffee shop that DEEP FRIED their french toast. I'm not going to lie, it was kind of amazing. Lots of fluffy egg curls around the edges and crispy edges.
