I don't know if it is just me, but yogurt at the farmers market/grocery store is hella expensive. I have been reading up on making my own, except I haven't been able to find much about Greek yogurt specifically. I know the difference is in the straining, but I am wondering if there are any other slight differences in the process that I should know about before starting. Has anyone successfully done this before?
Also, is it possible to use yogurt I already have as a starter?
Any advice and/or links are greatly appreciated!
I've been looking for a great gluten free cookbook for a person who has just been diagnosed as a Ciliac. I know it is a relatively new market and so far I haven't been able to find much feedback about which cookbooks are better than others. Do any of you Serious (gluten free) Eaters have any recommendations of books that you love?
I have a KA standing mixer that has recently gone crazy on me. By this I mean there are now two speeds, stir and SUPER FAST (even though there is supposed to be a gradual progression of speeds). I called the KA customer service, and could not get a preliminary idea of what the total price would be. $33 for shipping, then $25 for the diagnosis if I decide I don't want the KA factory to do the work for me, that's all I could get from the rep.
Has anyone else had this issue and can shed some advice in regards to it? I'd really like to find the cheapest way, but I'm prepared to bite the bullet and pay whatever to get it fixed... =(
I've been having a problem with some of my pots and pans (more importantly, my Le Creuset dutch oven) where there is some kind of stickiness that just won't wash off. It is colorless, and has seemed to appear out of nowhere.
I've tried dish soap and water, even using the dishwasher powder to make an abrasive paste but still cannot remove it. Thankfully it is on the outside of the pieces, but it would be nice not to have my hand stick to it when I try and put it away.
Has anyone else had this problem/figured out a way to solve it?
I have recently found out what a knish actually is and would like to try to make them. I live in DC, and there are few deli's, shops, etc. that serve them....so I figured I would give them a try myself.
I am not Jewish and therefore don't have a fabulous family recipe to follow or a Jewish grandmother to assist me, but I am of Eastern European descent, so maybe I can bank on that for some luck!
Any ideas/thoughts/recipes/recommendations? Is this even a good idea?

I have an annual holiday tradition with my family where we do what is called a "Yankee Swap". It is similar to a Dirty Santa where you buy one gift and then draw numbers to figure out the order to pick the gifts, then people can either take the gift they got, open a new one or switch with someone else.
The gift that each person contributes has to be something appealing to people from about 13 to 60, no easy task. I want to give some kind of foodie gift, any ideas for one that is interesting for all ages under $25/$30?
My office has decided that it would be nice to have a Thanksgiving Pot Luck. Bringing dessert would be easiest, but I really wanted to find a good main dish to bring (that isn't an entire turkey) that won't put people to sleep.
The twist is that we only have a toaster oven and a microwave to heat things up in, so I am also leaning toward something that would be tasty at room temperature. Any suggestions?
