Burger places that think putting quality ingredients on poor quality meat makes a good burger. Good toppings cannot make up for awful meat.

Got Extra Popeye's Biscuits? Save'em For Breakfast Sandwiches


+1 for a food lab on this. If not Popeyes, then any fast food style biscuits! I have been trying to come up with a recipe for this style of biscuit for years. Haven't found or created a recipe that comes close.

Make it happen please.

McDonald's Debuts Mighty Wings in Atlanta, They're Actually Mighty Good

I worked at a McDonalds for years in high school. Dropping something is McDonalds lingo for "put something in the fryer". I bet they completely ran out of wings and 10 minutes is the total time they need to cook. This isn't surprising to me, the cripsy chicken sandwhich needs 7 minutes to fry and the grilled chicken needs 6 minutes on the flat top.

Basically, you had a 10 minute wait because they stopped cooking the wings at somepoint and they ran out of them.

Chicken Parm and the Fridge

Thanks for the advice everyone.

Pasta Makers

Sorry if I wasn't clear. I thought you were choosing between a manual pasta maker and spending the extra money to get one with a motor. I was saying I don't think its worth it to spend the extra money for a motorized one unless you make A LOT of pasta.

I own a cheap one from bed, bath, and beyond. It works great actually. Been using it for about 2 years now.

Pasta Makers

It is just a matter of how much you mind manual labor. I have a manual machine and I love it. It does not bother me to crank it out manually. It does take more time to do this way though. I feel like the results are about the same though.

I love making pasta though. You don't want to overclean a manual pasta maker because the drum won't spin properly. Flour it well and it will treat you right.

Chicken Parm and the Fridge

Hello community,

I have a quick question. I am having people over tonight and I wanted to make chicken parm. In order to save time, on my lunch break today, I wanted to try and cut the cooking time in half. I want to preflour the chicken, dip it in egg wash, and then bread it again (like I normally would before I fry it). Then, I wanted to place all the chicken in the fridge. This way, when I get home, I can start frying all the chicken right away. Would this work?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
