I'm attempting a Veggie Coq au Vin recipe on Friday, but have never cooked with red wine. What are some good varietals to cook with? And has anyone tried making a vegetarian Coq au Vin?
Has anyone been watching the "truth about Food" series on Fit TV? It's amazing! I've learned so much about how food an affect hormones and overall health. Unlike the Food Network, this series is really scientific! Thoughts?
I just discovered it is National Oatmeal Month! I eat oats fro breakfast nearly every day (and occasionally in a waning PB jar!). So I am just curious to hear about SE'ers' oat recipes, be they oatmeal or oatbran, cookies or traditional oatmeal (and if so, what are the fave toppings?).
My CSA share this week included two arm sized daikon radishes. I have no experience with this veggie and would love some advise. What do SEers do with this Asian veggie?
I've got a potluck next Friday that has a South American theme (broad, I know). I'm bringing a bottle of Carmenere, and would like a Chilean dish to accompany it. I also was thinking of bringing a dish with Chimmichurri sauce (Argentinean). Does anyone have some other creative ideas?
I'd like to stay in for my Anniversary (2nd) as it is our first one living together (ek!). I don't want to slave over the stove all evening, but want plenty of delicious foods. I am thinking about dipping sauces and crusty breads, maybe shrimp, perhaps some bisque. I'm also lactose intolerant(no fondue), and wine will also be involved in the night, so I don't want to chop a ton of stuff :)
I just wanted to see what other Serious Eaters make for romantic night in.
Serious Efforts: My Dad (63) had a liver transplant last Saturday night. As he is soon to be discharged, I am starting to stock the fridge with wholesome food for him. I don't live with him, but am staying home while he recovers. I want to cook for him while I'm here, and maybe freeze some stuff for after I leave. His orders are for a high-calcium, lowfat, high protein, low-sodium diet, and low sugar. Thankfully, he likes pretty much any food, except pasta. Any ideas for certain foods or recipes that would improve his life right now would be sooo deeply appreciated. Thanks everyone!
I just picked up my first tub of Miso (light Yellow, Japanese-style Shiro Miso). Beyond soup, what do serious eaters out there do with miso? I've heard a great combo is Miso on a baked sweet potato...sounds wild, and I'm looking for more ideas!
Soon I'll be moving to a fairly small town which lacks any type of natural food store, and any supermarkets with bulk sections. I love buying bulk, especially spices. I'm wondering, do any SE'ers have similar situations? Any solutions?
I'll be moving to Wyoming soon, and though I love experimenting in the kitchen, I may run through bags and bags of flour before I adjust to the altitude. Does anyone have some tips or hints for baking at high altitudes (7,200ft to be exact)? I have always lived at about 1,000ft and have no idea how high altitudes affect baked goods. Thanks!
Valentine's is sneaking up on me! It will be the second V-day with my BF. My BF will eat pretty much anything, but we both love healthy food (hummus, curry, stir-fry). Steaks, mussels, potatoes, and any chocolate, apple, and/or peanut butter dessert are also faves.
So, does anybody have some ideas for a romantic meal that won't leave me harried from cooking over a hot stove or in the ER from using a clever! I'm a decent cook, and often experiment with new recipes. I'd love to make something that is not too complex (I'm just out of school, and my kitchen is tiny).
