Sweet Chili Chicken Wings

A couple of comments I wanna share:
I raise a small flock of egg laying chickens, so watching the portlandia video had me just lmao!
Ran out of Mae Ploy this morning, I always use it on my scrambled eggs instead of catsup. Will have to make a run for it this weekend. The recipe looks wonderful and I want to try it out.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Two Peter Luger Steaks

Geez, so many to chose from...if I am buying my answer is Hotel or NY Strip. If it is the green of another footing the bill, Filet Mignon baby!

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: D'Artagnan Boneless Heritage Ham

Rye or second choice wheat...ham, cheese, lettuce, Miracle Whip, pepperocini pepper rings, slivered onion and sliced black olives; just depends on what is in the fridge.

What is a good coconut milk substitute?

I have tried several Indian and Thai dishes that had coconut milk in them, it was the coconut smell and flavor that I could not take, basically it started my quest for a substitution. Loved the other elements, just trying to find a way around the coconut milk thing. Since it is such a large part of some dishes, I was hoping someone else shared my coconut milk aversion, and had formulated a solution other than don't partake of these recipes. ;-)

Pizza Protips: Additions to Your Dough

Looking for a decent, thin crust bread machine pizza dough recipe?

*hiding under my table, bracing for the comments the purists will certainly be hurling in my general direction*

Have tried more recipes than I can count, but still, nothing decent from a bread machine. Come on, if they make it there must be a good pizza dough than can come from it? Right???

The Crisper Whisperer: Big Bag of Salad

So if I have "digested" this post correctly...only sturdy greens and sturdy veggies to go with them are a safe bet for your method?

When it is off season outside for growing, I am such a sucker for all the tender things at the store...I end up buying too much and then it spoils before I can use it all. The only up side is that my layer hens love whatever treats I can throw their way, expensive treats they are!!!

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Southside Market Sausage

Well, since I live in the middle of BFE, I guess I would have to say "Mi Casa" is my favorite BBQ joint. ;-P

What is a good coconut milk substitute?

I will toy with the different milk/cream/condensed milk suggestions, thanks very much.

I just had a brain drain...would pureed tofu be a good candidate as well? Should have a full mouth feel and be pretty thick...could be thinned if needed?

What is a good coconut milk substitute?

It is the taste and smell of coconut. Heck, even some of the tanning products with coconut in them make me nauseous...that is so sad.

Aprons: yea or nay?

Apron, you betcha! Full frontal, utilitarian with pockets, butcher/deli style aprons...nothing girlie or cute. The material has to be tough since I use them for both outside grill/smoker/turkey fryer duty as well as normal kitchen work; cotton duck, denim, or the like. June Cleaver I am not...LOL

Healthy & Delicious: Italian Egg-Drop Soup

What would this turn out like if I used 4 cups of broth, drained and processed the chickpeas before adding to the soup and then omit the pasta? Any suggestions? Sounds like it would work?

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Zingerman's Praise the Lard Gift Box

The smell of Grandpa's fresh, smoke cured, pepper crusted bacon wafting up the stairway on a crisp winter morning...ahhhhhhh!!!
