From Behind the Bar: Real Estate

First of all for every two people you upset and will never visit your bar again there are likely three more coming up behind to order drinks. The issue isn't whether or not business is going to decline. However, I think this is poor service. I go to bars and I drink, and I go to bars and I drink water. I have had want for stools, or a chair, or even a sturdy wall to lean on. I have not ever cursed out another patron, either out loud or under my breath, because they have a stool and I don't regardless of whether they are drinking water or iced tea or long island iced tea. I think this practice is simply rude, and uncalled for.

The Burger Lab: How To Make Any Cheese Melt Like American (Almost)

what would be the best way of doing this without a steamer? Maybe small ceramic cups of cheese in a mesh strainer over the water with a lid? Also I know it's about adding moisture but is there anyway this might be achieved in a microwave?

Do you like buffets...really?

I'll eat at a buffet occasionally, my feeling is you should kind of know what you're getting into. Most buffets, unless you find one that is really special the quality of the food comes in at a distant second to the quantity.

healthy sport snacks for all day tournaments

I've recently discovered this new mixture, dry whole rolled oats mixed with planters new 5 alarm chili peanuts. The oats help balance out the heat some, along with the carbs, fiber and protein to keep you going all day. Also they keep great in any kind of conditions just so long as they keep dry of course.

Something like this sounds perfect to impress some friends hungover one morning.

Horchata

I don't know if blanching is a necessity or not but using a cheese cloth with the strainer will reduce the grittiness

Going Nuts for Horchata

Has anyone tried adding coffee grounds to give this a little more of a mocha flavor? I'm planning on making this soon and am wondering if that will totally ruin it or not. Haha

Quick and Easy Drop Biscuits

Fannie Farmer of the famed Boston School of Cooking, called drop biscuits "Emergency Biscuits," which is appropriate considering that all you need to make them is 25 minutes and five basic ingredients. Not only are these quick to make, but they're also super fluffy and tender. More

Coconut Curd

In the fridge were two jars of coconut curd that he wouldn't go near because they weren't yet labelled (I made them in a hurry). I was once served a coconut curd in New Zealand at Breckenridge Lodge.... More

Savory Irish Oatcakes

Yes, the name says "savory", but a sprinkling of sugar sweetens these hearty rounds. Plus, their oaty, wheaty dough makes them all the more amenable to spreading with jam or dipping in honey. They also meld well with a piping hot cuppa. More
