For Extra Moist and Crisp Stuffing, Break Out the Slow Cooker

Oh frabjous day! This is my favorite way to make stuffing, but I never cogitated over WHY it turns out so scrumptious. Thank you for the great explanation. It does work fine for cornbread stuffing, and I keep a couple of cups of chicken stock with lots of butter melted into it for extra dousing during cooking if necessary. Those buttery, crispy sides are like crack and I guarantee nobody will miss a crispy top.

@TravelPath...LOL!! Stuffing cake? I think you are a little crazy. In a good way of course.

Tacos de Canasta: How to Make the Perfect Potluck Taco

I love these! I never thought about them being for pot-lucks but they would be great; you're brilliant for thinking of it. Down in La Paz, BCS a guy brings these around to the marina most mornings by bicycle. He has a distinctive whistle and, like Pavlov's dog, all the cruisers come streaming out of their boats, drooling, ready for a mid-morning snack. Thanks for the recipe!

American Chop Suey: The Cheesy, Beefy, Misnamed Stovetop Casserole That Deserves a Comeback

Also California born and bred, also never heard of this, but it looks delicious. I live on a boat for part of the year and am always looking for deceptively easy one-pot dishes that will make it look like I worked harder than I did. (With fewer pans to clean, hence using less water.) This is perfect! Thank you.

Cook-and-Serve Flour Tortillas From TortillaLand Are as Close as You'll Get to Homemade

Thank you!! I live in Mexico most of the year and got turned on to raw flour tortillas there. But I have really missed them in the U.S. Little did I know they were waiting for me at Safeway. Doh!

Papa a la Huancaína!! I'm still searching for the best-ever recipe.

Wahoo! Looking for recipes for this ono fish.

@Fred, we did do that the same day we shot the wahoo, poke two styles (Sriracha and chipotle) and a nice sashimi platter too. Now, if you have a favorite poke recipe I would love to hear it, I am always looking to improve my technique.

Wahoo! Looking for recipes for this ono fish.

@Acacia - sounds perfect, easy and tasty. There is a farmer's market tomorrow and I will pick up some ginger and scallions and drink a toast in your honor. Thanks!

What should I put in a piñata?

What a great idea, I LOVE piñatas as gifts!! If you like wacky (and have time to order) how about checking out Archie McPhee? Do a search on "food" and see what goofy food-themed items pop up. What is the piñata shaped like?

Wahoo! Looking for recipes for this ono fish.

Thanks to a lucky day of spearfishing we now have a freezer full of wahoo. Anybody got any great recipes or ideas for cooking this ono fish? I live on a boat in Baja so ideally it shouldn't be too complicated, but I do have a stove, oven, BBQ and a pantry with a pretty good inventory of ingredients. Can also get most any fresh fruits and veg. Last year I did a lot of Mojo de Ajo and Pibil-style. Tonight will probably just grill with a simple baste of olive oil, locally harvested sea salt and pepper, but anyone got any other ideas? The easier the better!
