The Food Lab: Fresh Ricotta in Five Minutes or Less

A good reason for using buttermilk instead of vinegar is if you make your own cultured butter, as I do, and desperately need something to do with all the buttermilk. I made some today and it was fine, and next time I will definitely try the microwave trick, so thanks for that!

Bagelnomics: The Curious Pricing of New York's Bagel With Cream Cheese

Listen, the whole cholesterol thing is a myth, but you're right, too much cream cheese is kind of icky because nowadays all cream cheeses are full of gummy binders. But you can make your own, it's really easy.

The Elements of Barbecue: Is Gas Barbecue Really Barbecue?

@vereto: That's brisket, as any red-blooded, smoked-meat-eating Montrealer will tell you!

Rapid Rolls From 'Kitchen Confidence'


@spiderine: I would use a regular Parker House rolls recipe in that case.

Andrew Carmellini's World's Best Biscuits. End of Story.

Instead of folding, I would roll out the dough into a square, cut the square in 4, and stack the resulting squares. Chill, roll out again, cut and stack. Chill, roll out one last time to final thickness. Cut into squares or use round cutter, and instead of mixing the remnants into a ball, stack them and roll them out a bit and bake them in whatever shape comes out -- they are the cook's bonus!

What are the measuring rules for recipes in Serious Eats

Then there's something wrong with the recipe as I had to add 3 ounces of flour to make a dough that was more cohesive than mud.

Slow Cooker Kalua Pork Sandwiches With Crispy Asian Slaw

The roast didn't fit in my slow cooker, so I did it at 200F for eight hours in a cast-iron pot with a double layer of parchment around the roast, then overnight at 175F. The roast is amazing, and now I'm making head cheese with the leftovers. Can't wait to eat it!

Starter-Along Sourdough Pizza

Are the quantities weights or measures?

I weighed the first part, now I'm not sure if that was the right decision, and what to do about the second part.

Thank you.

Sauced: Five Cranberry Sauce Variations for Thanksgiving

How about a cranberry-rhubarb recipe? I have tons of rhubarb from the garden I need to get rid of to make room in the freezer!

Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast And Stuffing (Thanksgiving For a Small Crowd)

@dilama… take the comma out at the end of your link, it doesn't work with it.

Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies

I'd just like to remind everyone that "dulce de leche" is Spanish, not Italian, therefore "dulce" is not pronounce "doulchay", but "doulsay". I have yet to hear a TV chef pronounce this correctly.

What are the measuring rules for recipes in Serious Eats

The recipe I'm following says 2 ounces of flour - so I weighed that - and 1 ounce of liquid - so I measured that. Should I have also weighed the water, or should I have measured both?

In other words, what is the standard for the recipes you publish? Weights or cups/spoons measures?

(Hint: I prefer weighing everything.)

Thanks!
