I hope the folks here in SE are able to help me out again!
I'll be attending Comic Con all 4 days in San Diego. I know places I'd like to go at the end of each day (Extraordinary Desserts and Hash House), but because of the schedule of events I don't want to leave the convention center to grab a bite to eat (and I certainly dont want to eat convention food, blech!).
My solution, as I've done in previous years, is to bring food to eat while sitting/standing in-between panels. This year is different because I've never attended all 4 days.
I plan to bring dried goods like trail mix and an energy bar, but can anyone else think of any other foods to pack? Please keep in mind I won't have access to refrigeration or a microwave.
I made pernil last night and now have a splattered mess of pork fat inside my oven. Without setting the smoke detector off from just turning on the oven, I need to clean it thoroughly.
Does anyone have an effective method of cleaning their oven? If a product must be used, are there any that has no smell or a low smell at all? I'm pretty sensitive to chemical smells so I'd really like to not make use of Easy Off.
Hope some locals can help me out!
I'm in the south bay right now and am craving pie. I'll be oot and aboot in the area all day but I'll also be passing through OC and Riverside later tonight.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for pie?
Hey y'all, hope SE can help me out again!
My hubs and I will be moving cross country next week. All my kitchen appliances, cookware, bakeware, utensils, etc., will be packed away in a shipping container and on a truck going west on Tuesday. The problem is we're stuck here at our current location until we fly out on MLK day! I'm trying to do all my grocery shopping either today or tomorrow because my car will be picked up to be shipped on Tuesday as well.
I'm thinking sandwiches are the easiest route to go but all I have at hand is pb & j and hummus. Does anyone have any other recs on what we can make?
Hi ya'll, hope someone on SE can help me out!
I would like to replace the cookware of my in-laws as a nice thank you present to them.
I searched previous posts on cookware sets and am aware of buying ala carte as well as bargain hunting at Ross/TJ Maxx/etc (it's how I found my stainless steel Calphalon skillet for $20!).
My main concern with buying them new cookware is what brand(s) to buy them related to their cooking style. Their current cookware is over a decade old and: missing handles on the stockpots and griddle pan; pitted and scratched relentlessy; and most of the bottoms of the bottoms of their pots bulge out.
There's no way I'd buy All Clad for them. At the same time I don't want to buy a set that will fall apart after one use. Non-stick is out of the question as well since it will be scratched.
Off the top of my head they have two 4 qt stock pots, two 1 qt saucepans, a griddle pan, 10 oz iron skillet, and a lot of smaller saucepans with missing handles.
With these particular things in mind, does anyone have any suggestions on what to buy them?
I accidentally picked up a piece currant vodka cheddar thinking it said currant cheddar (stupid price tag!). I sampled a piece a while back and the taste reminded me of smelly ripe cheese. I couldn't decipher if it was a boozy taste at all. I'm willing to do another taste test just to make sure. I've had some suggestions of using it as a topping for a vinaigrette salad if it's not boozy and to cook it with pork if it is.
Does anyone have any idea on what I can do with this cheese or what's a good flavor to pair it with?
I'm almost out of my jar of Nutella that I bought when I was over seas back in June. I tried to taste the US formula for Nutella and it was the equivalent of me licking a plastic bag. So you can see my dilemma of wanting to replace my stock soon!
So, to the people in NYC, where can I find an imported bottle of Nutella or similar so that I may purchase it?
The major differences I can come up with in regards to processed and unprocessed shortening is one goes through a hydrogenated process while the other is whipped through the use of nitrogen (at least, from what I can find off of Spectrum Natural's website).
Are there any major health concerns between using one over the other? I'm not too concerned about shortening being plant or animal based.
