I would really love to start baking but it seems complicated. Any suggestions for a way to start that I can't mess up? I would love to bake bread!
I also made a beef stew last week and used a small eye roast that I cut into pieces then seared then stewed but it did not come out as tender as my mom's.....what did I do wrong?
I'm always trying to make a juicy, tender, flavorful steak, granted I'm not using filet mignon since I can't really afford it. So how do I make a steak that's not tough? What kind do I buy and what do I do with it when I get it? Thanks all!
Hi all, I need a dish for Easter Brunch that feeds about 50 people and that the kids (we have a lot in our extended family) will also like. Thanks
My family is having their annual easter brunch and I'm sure the usual egg, sausage, cheese casseroles will be served. They are all very good but I'd like to make something that is special for my contribution. Does anyone have a really great brunch dish I can make this year? Thanks
I am about to head to the supermarket here in philadelphia, and the blizzard is coming. What great "blizzard food" should I (or would you) make(recipes welcome) or buy?
I've never made my own biscuits before and would like to make homemade ones for Thanksgiving. Does anyone have a favorite biscuit recipe? Are biscuits always made with yeast? Thanks all and Happy Thanksgiving!
I had to cut up jalapeno peppers and hot peppers and my fingers are burning and won't stop, what do I do? I cut them up before but I've never had this reaction. Thanks. (It really hurts)
So there was a sale on pie crusts this week, graham cracker and chocolate pie crust, so I bought several thinking they would really come in handy for the holidays. I am however not much of a desert maker (trying to be though). What should I do with them? Thanks
I tried to make vegetable stock the other day for vegtable soup(daughter is vegetarian), filled a pot full of carrots, peppers, onions, turnips, etc. covered in water, salt and pepper, brought to a boil let slow boil (simmer) for two hours, tasted, and it tasted like boiled water! What am I doing wrong? Should I just buy stock? Pretty expensive for a big pot of soup though! Thanks for any and all advice.
Well, next week is supposed to be chilly in Philly and the Birds are playing tomorrow, so I would greatly appreciate a killer chili recipe! I love chili, but in the past I had to really tone it down because that's the only way my kids would eat it. Now I can't remember how to make great chili! I really need the best chili recipe in the world. Please help SE'ers.
Next month I am taking my youngest daughter to NY City to see where she'll be going to college next year. We both love great food, but I don't know the city and I'm on a budget (she's my third in college, on a single mom's salary!) I would appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks!
