I had this amazing idea to have a housewarming party for a few (25) of my friends and realized I have no clue what to put on the menu. Burgers-duh, hot dogs-got 'em, can sodas-c'mon! I am clueless as to what else I can get, (on a budget) that will be great. Any tips guys?
The other day, I wanted to conduct an experiment with some friends of mine. I bought some pre-made ricotta cheese stuffed, ravioli, ingredients for home-made tomato sauce and the canned tomato sauce.
In a "blind" test, I asked them if they liked the pasta + sauce (homemade) the first time around. they all said yea, it was great. Second time around, I asked them if they liked it again(store bought) said it was hard to tell the difference.
I then told them, the first was storebought (a lie) they all said
tomato sauce outta can? Gross!
How do you guys feel? Is it all in our heads? Does perception take over the reality of taste?
OK, so this past week has been really rough at work and maybe I'm the only person in the world but...I think my boss is an idiot sometimes. So when I get home from work and I need to calm down, I crave Breyers vanilla ice cream and mix in cinnamon and Rice Krispie treats. I know, I shouldn't eat to calm me down. But, does anyone else eat have strange cravings when they're angry or emotional?
Please tell me I'm not alone! lol
In celebration of National "eat what you want" day, (lol) ladies and gentlemen of SE, I present to you Carrot Cake Pie. I found it on yet another blog site. Did this person really innovate here or has anyone heard of this carrot cake pie before?
Carrot Cake Pie
Oh and if you try this recipe out...let me know how it tastes. I love carrot cake and I love pie!
So I just wanted to know if I was the last person who's heard about this site cooktobang.com- Recipes to get you laid? It's got this incredible list of recipes that in one way or another are supposed to turn your late night into a "I made eggs for breakfast".
I like the sound of the "Tap that Ass-paragus" I think it's hilarious!
Again, has anyone else heard of this http://cooktobang.com/ and what is everyone's thoughts on it?
This weekend, I made for the very first time, a home made pizza. I made the dough, a basic sauce, mozz cheese and fresh basil. It was edible. Are there any good/strange home-made pizza ideas out there? I am not a fan of pepperoni at all! lol The more strange it sounds the more likely I am to try it.
So the other day, I went to a friend of a friend's restaurant out here in Philly. I won't name it for obvious reasons, but it's pretty popular. Anyway, I went in for lunch and he brings out a prized meal that has gotten him so popular out here in the city. I thanked him, (I mean it was free) but the chicken was raw in the middle, the biscuits were hard and the soup was like salt water. (and not the good kind)
Do I tell him about this? Or do I pretend like it didn't happen?
Has something similar happened to anyone one else?
Hi everyone, I was marveling over the brilliance in cooking method and presentation of using a pink Himalayan salt plate in fancy dining. Then I began to wonder, at $30 - $90 a plate what do you do with the plate made of salt once it's used? You can't wash it, I mean it's salt right?
