There's a big debate in our family. All six of us like something different to eat when we need to cool off. So what would you choose to grab out of the freezer... a popsicle, a drumstick or an ice cream sandwich?
The family and I have had it with the 110 valley heat, so we're going on a day trip from Stockton to Santa Cruz up Highway 1 to San Francisco... any suggestions on where to eat?
Help me! This week the temperature around where I live is going to be well over the 105 degree mark! 107 today, tomorrow is suppose to be 110 and I don't have air conditioning. I was wondering what were your sure fire ways to beat the heat? Any good popsicle recipes, iced tea recipes or anything not using the oven would be appreciated!
since tomorrow is the forth of july... what are your plans? are you cooking? going to a bbq? what are you looking forward to eating?
I just want to know, what you are having for dinner tonight?
I missing JEP's fun questions. So, instead of talking about Aunt Sandy or any of the other Food Network stars. Let's talk about what would we rather eat... waffles or pancakes? Which is better? What kind of toppings?
My little sous chefs are bugging me for more exotic food. I'm not talking about Andrew Zimmern type foods either! My husband is Mexican and I'm Italian, so we've got that covered. They want Indian, Korean, Chinese, ect. We have lots of ethnic stores in our area, I just don't know where to start. Cookbooks, websites? Please help me, before there's a riot at my house!
All my little sous chefs are home on spring break and I desperately need something to keep them occupied for a couple hours. I'm thinking about trying something different with dying easter eggs, but since I'm not the crafty type, I need help! Any ideas or suggestions?
March 14th is coming up. What are you going to do for pie day?
All I want to know is, what are you having for dinner tonight?
My next door neighbor gave me two dozen meyer lemons from his tree. Other than lemon bars, what should I do with them?
It's cold, windy and rainy today out where I live, so I'm craving soup. What's your favorite soup for a day like this?
I posted this question on my blog but I thought you might get a kick out of it.If your canidate came knocking at your door after stumping all day in your city or town saying all they wanted was a homecooked meal and for you to help them with their food policy. What would you cook them and over dinner what would you say about food policy?
Last night I made polenta according to Lidia Bastianich's basic polenta recipe. It didn't turn out like I thought it would, I thought it was suppose to turn out more creamy and somewhat lighter. It wasn't grainy but the polenta also wasn't super smooth. Is it me, maybe a texture thing, or not enough cooking time. I've heard anything from 40 minutes to 3 hours. I cooked mine for 50 minutes. Or is it not adding liquid thoughout the cooking. I've heard you add liquid but I've also heard you don't. The same with stirring. To stir or don't stir, apparently that is THE question. Does anybody have any ideas about what might have happened or any tips to making really good polenta?
I wanted to share a feel good story about everyone's favorite store, Trader Joe's. Last week, my 80 year old Grandmother went to Trader Joe's to get her weekly groceries. When she got to the checkout line and tried to pay for her food, ($80 approx.) her credit card went on the fritz! So, the cashier called over the manager and he pulled out his personal credit card and paid for her groceries with the promise " next time you come in, you can pay me back." Now I know why at our local Trader Joe's everyone is always smiling and happy. Has anyone else had this level of customer service at Trader Joe's or anywhere else for that matter?
