Anyone ever made this? I've managed to master pork dumplings and pot stickers and now have been challenged to try pork buns. I have fond memories of eating them in Hawaii and living in Orlando doesn't really give me any access to good dim sum. I have the bamboo steamers...I just need a good recipe or advice -- also, how do you make your chinese bbq? I see a lot of recipes for the Bao, but not the Char Siu. Help!
So..we are planning a trip to the UK this year and have whittled it down to a couple airlines. I haven't flown internationally in nearly 8 years and then it was to Korea, business class, and fabulous! How bad has the food gotten? I've only read horrible reviews for most lines. Virgin? United? British Airways?
We just got off a cruise last week and got very friendly with the sommelier. He told us his favorite summertime drink is mixing red wine with Coke and chilling it. Has anyone ever done this? It sounds absolutely disgusting to me and I'm not sure I want to risk it!
I stumbled across a lwebsite, today that had a list of foods that companies no longer make. I miss Planter's cheese balls and Keebler Tater skins potato chips! I even remember the jingle! Remember gatorade gum? What childhood food do you wish they still made?
As part of the Florida Film Festival, AB was here this weekend for their foodie portion of the festival. I was lucky enough to get to hear him talk at the Enzian theater in a sort of round table q&A with the audience. I was only about 15 feet from him the entire discussion and can affirm that he will continue on with the golden clog awards next year with "real gold clogs, corporate sponsers, and shit".
This made me wonder, if you could ask any famous chef/cook, etc. a question, what would it be and why?
I just moved into a new house and have had to totally re-do my herb garden. I went out today and bough sweet basil, oregano, and rosemary to start.
Also available was mint, peppermint, mexican tarragon, chocolate mint (??? anyone tried this???), cilantro, 3 different varieties of oregano, culantro, and parsley....What do you grow?
My husband bought me for xmas a set of silicone bakeware. I've been wanting it for a while (not sure why, as I don't really bake). Anyway, I tried to bake cinnamon rolls in it this morning and smoke was billowing out of my oven and the house smells like burned rubber......am I missing something here?
I know Le Creuset is probably going to be the number one choice, but I'm really looking for a more budget friendly version. I'm looking for between 5-6 quart, round, enamaled. I've heard that Lodge has recently put out one that rivals Le Creuset and at 1/6th the price ($59.99) and that the Calphalon dutch ovens have chipping issues. What Dutch oven do you have and do you recommend it???
I really want to braise some chicken this weekend. Make use of extra chicken thighs and legs I have. The problem is...there are so many recipes for braised chicken that I don't know which one to go with. What is your favorite braised chicken recipe? I need tested results!
