The Food Lab: This Creamy, Cheesy Brussels Sprouts Gratin Just Might Be the Side Dish of Your Dreams

@ joy see

no one is recommending to eat this every day. thanksgiving is the day we usually throw out the scales and have great tasting food. with so many side dishes serving sizes are a lot smaller than usual.

Creamy Cauliflower and Bacon Soup

just finished it. that was some goooooood soup. only thing i did different was use the non tender parts of the scallions in the soup base and removed them at the end with the bay leaves just to not be wasteful.

American Chop Suey: The Cheesy, Beefy, Misnamed Stovetop Casserole That Deserves a Comeback

just finished the recipe. its really good! i didn't season the beef and it just seemed to taste under seasoned in the final dish. came out the really nice and tender though.

i wasn't sure with the soak/finish in sauce how much the pasta would drink up. it was pretty loose and could have done without the chicken stock. great easy week night meal.

The Picky Eater Challenge: Helping Kids (and Adults!) Try New Foods Without Tricks

i just want to throw out just because they tried one version of something have them try a different version/preparation.

i hated mushrooms, olives (from the horrible forms on pizza), seafood of all sorts etc. having real mushrooms, an olive tapenade and then something other than fully cooked flaky fish, i eat almost everything.

An Introduction to Sri Lankan Cuisine

ceylon cookery is the one all my sri lankan relatives swear by.

thanks for the great intro! its going to be great to share this with them to inform them. never thought to describe hoppers as a pancake in a bowl.


there's a couple things i'd like to add.

for short eats there are 3 more common varieties. One is pictured under the short eats section, the chinese roll (on the right of that image). There are also and patties and generic "rolls." Patties and chinese rolls all have the same filling as cutlets They can come filled with chicken, fish, beef or shrimp. Chinese rolls are crepes filled with the filling and rolled like an egg roll then dipped in extra batter (or egg wash) and breadcrumbs and fried. Patties have a pie type crust folded into a dumpling shape and fried.
Rolls are either puffed pastry or bread rolls filled with something like eggs, bacon, sausage, or ground beef.

For dessert, biscuit pudding is a favorite. biscuit cookies are soaked in milk till soft and layered with a mix of butter/powdered sugar/brandy (or kahlua/melted chocolate.

buttermilk soaked, with a simple flour crust with some of the buttermilk mixed in.

Mushroom Duxelles-Stuffed Chicken Paprikash

i went with kezz18's directions. brought sauce up to boil, into oven for 15 minutes and then stir in the tempered sour cream.

i ended up with almost twice as much duxelles as needed even after going more than 2 tablespoons per.
