Sous Vide Barbecue Pulled Pork Shoulder

I'm making this for dinner tonight. I was going to finish it on the grill but when it came out of the sous vide, it was already falling apart, so I'm finishing it in the oven. Smells good and my cat was going nuts trying to get some.

Chain Reaction: We Try Subway's Flatizza

I tried one and had the opposite problem in regards to the "crust". It was so crisp, I was afraid I'd break a tooth. I had the veggie one and it was fine for pizza from a sandwich place. If you want real pizza, why are you at Subway?

Slow-Cooker Mexican Beef With Lime Crema and Pinto Beans

I don't drink at all. Can I just replace the tequila with more broth?

Sous Vide City Ham With Balsamic Brown Sugar Glaze

I'm going to ask my son if I can borrow his sous-vide so I can try this recipe.

Preserved: What's the Deal With Fruit Butters?

I'd like to see a recipe for berry or cherry butter. Apple butter is so common.

Why Have I Never Tried: the U-No Bar?

I loved it when I was a kid, but I doubt I'd like it now.

Blueberry-Meyer Lemon Muffins

Can I use sour cream instead of crème fraîche?

Gadgets: Takeya Flash Chill Tea Maker, a Pitcher for Making Iced Tea

I bought a pair of these at Costco several months ago. They are great for making cold brewed iced tea.

Fiery Peach Salsa from 'Little Jars, Big Flavors'

Why use bottled lime juice? Can I use real lime juice instead?

Open Thread: What's Your Preferred Pop-Tart?

Frosted brown sugar cinnamon with butter. Sure, it killed the basselopes, but I'll take my chances.

Peach Snickerdoodle Cobbler

Could I make this in a square baking pan instead of ramekins?

Strawberry "Long-Cake"

I made this today. It was excellent and easy to put together. I didn't have whipped cream so I served it with ice cream instead.

Hot Pepper Relish

I make something very similar, except mine also has sweet bell peppers along with the hot peppers and onions. Is this water bath cannable?

Sugar Rush: Doughnuts at The Donuttery, Huntington Beach, CA

When my oldest son still lived at home, if he was going to be out late with his friends he'd bring home a box of Donuttery's donuts as a "peace offering". It's one of the things I miss, now that he's moved out.

What Gross Food Stuff Did You Do as a Kid?

I used to do the thing with the cream packets as well. It was fun and not terribly "gross".

I used to love saladitos, which now the mere thought of makes me feel faint. Oh, the salt!

Why You Should Compost Your Coffee Grounds

We do this, but I have a Keurig so it involves carefully cutting open each kcup and scraping out the coffee. It does require some extra effort but makes me feel better about the one-use system.

Glamorgan Sausages

I've read through this recipe a couple times. You cook the onions and thyme. Then mix cheese, breadcrumbs, egg, milk and mustard and form into sausages. What do you do with the onion mixture? I assume it goes in with the cheese etc.

We Try the New Cheesecake Brownie from Starbucks

Some states, like California, require posting nutritional information on the board. It may be that Starbucks just makes one information board to meet the requirements of California (and New York I think).

Which Is the Best K-Cup Coffee?

I like Green Mountain Dark Magic. I may try the Barista Prime Italian though.

We Try the Hot Cocoa Mixes from Starbucks

I get a ginormous tin of Starbucks hot cocoa from Costco. I think it must be the Classic stuff as it's mixed with milk. I think it's quite tasty. I use vanilla coconut milk to make it, so I get an extra hit of vanilla flavor.
