Besides them sliced or not (recent thread topic)...what are your favorite types of mushrooms? Have any standby recipes?
Wanna share what you ate these past few days, or at least what you can remember? I'm curious about what you serious eaters ate during this typical ol' workweek. Also, happy holidays!
Okay, so I'm totally addicted to nutritional yeast. I love it on popcorn and lately I've taken to just nibbling on a spoonful all by its lonesome. My question is, can you suggest some ideas of how to incorporate it into other snacks/dishes?
I'd like to make stuffed mushrooms as a vegetarian appetizer for Thanksgiving. Anyone have a recipe(s) they can recommend? Thank you in advance and I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
Halloween is still a ways off, but it got me wondering:
Have you ever dressed up in some sort of food-related costume in the past? What was it and when...
What are your favorite store-bought salad dressings, or do you only make your own? What do you like to top them with?
I am addicted to Annie's Goddess with sunflower seeds, diced avocado and cucumber.
A question for those of you that work, or have worked, in the food service industry (restaurants, whatnot)...
What are the most frustrating, ridiculous, irritating or just plain weird situations you've experienced? I'm talking having to do with bosses, customers, co-workers, whatever.
I work at a buffet and just got off an hour ago and dang, it was a frustrating night. Anyway, what's your story?
What are your most memorable Talk threads from the past few years? I love this portion of Serious Eats and would love to read some of the oldies but goodies that I may have missed during their posting lifetimes.
Got any memorable ones that come to mind?
So I work at an all-you-can-eat chinese buffet. I don't eat the food there because it's totally americanized and bland (plus that kitchen, ugh).
Anyway I'm wondering if you are a fan of buffets in general, and if so what kind, or do you actively avoid them?
I don't like em. Too many options, I don't quite know what to do with myself. (:
I can't even express, especially through written word, how heartbreakingly sorry I am for your loss. Dumpling was crazily lovely and hilarious and painfully adorable and extremely photogenic is the best way possible. Thank you for giving all of us Serious Eaters glimpses into your life with him.
So everyone, what are your fondest memories of Dumpling? Have a favorite halloween outfit that he wore so well? What about one of his famous facial expressions that just always cracked you up and go "Awww!!"?
There are so many, it's hard to pick and choose (:
I'm bored, let's make it interesting...
My boyfriend is a bartender and watching him shake the perfect martini, or even popping a beer with whatever doodad is on hand before I can blink, is pretty hot (:
He's also a damn good cook but that just pisses me off cause I wanna beat him at something, jeez!
So is there anything that your other half does in the kitchen or behind the bar that you find especially attractive?
(SaucyJohnny, this one's for you)
I am passionate about food but I've had a tough time with it for a good half of my life. It started when I was 11 and I'm almost 24. Postponed puberty, hospitalization, rehab, etc. But all is alright and I'm appreciative because of it, which (finally) leads me to my quite personal question...
Despite your love for it, have you had a tumultuous relationship (or whatever you want to call it) with food? If so, what helped you work through it?
One of my favorite things about this great website is the Talk section. I love reading what all y'all have to say and I've learned more than a lot.
I suppose this is nosy, but I'm always curious to know something about the person behind whose commentary I'm reading. Pretty much the questions listed on user profiles, and not very many are filled out.
So my question is, if you feel so inclined, would you like to talk a little about yourself?
Good to meet you in advance (:
It's the cutest one-cup coffee maker and I'd never seen one before. After my lovely Nana passed away last week, my parents were sorting through all of her possessions and found the little thing. She and my Papa traveled around the country a lot before having children so I'm sure it came in handy while on the road. I tried it out yesterday and it actually brewed a decent cup.
Out of curiosity, have you heard of and/or used one of these before?
I've read through the Shopsins menu a few times online and am in awe of how overwhelming it is. I've never been to the restaurant and do not even live in NY, but I am still curious:
What have you eaten at Shopkins before and what did you think of it? What would you choose to order even if you've never been there before?
All the reviews I've read have been about the breakfast/brunch-type dishes and the sandwiches. Have any of you tried the crazy variety of soups, Yin/Yangs, skillets, trays, bowls, veggie options, etc...?
I only eat ice cream out of a mug with a fork or a baby spoon. I'm obsessed with plasticware and I love to drink coffee out of those to-go cups with the plastic lids and tiny straws. I wash and reuse all of these.
What quirky ways do you eat certain foods?
I know it isn't over yet, but...
What food-related gifts did you receive from, or give to, your special Valentine(s) today?
Have a happy one, y'all!
I've never tried the stuff and am thinking about buying a can, just for the heck of it. I'm not sure how I should cook it, maybe fried up with some eggs?
Anyway, I'm curious...How many of you out there enjoy eating SPAM? What are your favorite ways to prepare it?
You can choose anything and it will magically appear before you. What do you want to eat at this very moment?
I eat meat, and I enjoy it. However, I never have and do not want to hunt animals. I'm not opposed to it of course, I'd be a blatant hypocrite if I was. I'm merely curious...how many of you Serious Eaters actually hunt for your food?
So there are a lot of 'em and people love 'em and often times they're phallic but not always.
What's your favorite food on a stick?
Okay so, obviously, there are a lot of people writing articles for this site. Am I the only one who would like to know a lil' bit about the person who wrote what I am reading? I always check out profiles and a lot of them aren't filled out at all. I get that. If you are simply a member, no biggie. But if you are working for the website...just seems it should be mandatory to tell readers something about who you are.
Can anyone relate?
My great dane loves steamed broccoli and green beans, and got really excited when I let her finish the rest of my spinach with balsamic vinaigrette the other day (yes she's spoiled, I can't help it!). I actually have to lock my boyfriend's cat out of the room if I eat tator tots because he freaks out like a fiending crackhead.
What strange things does your pet goes crazy for?
Or, in general, got any memorable stories about pets and food?
I realize this is not actually food related, it's about the "Talk" forum in general.
Do any of you Serious Eaters get nervous or anxious about posting a question or starting a topic? Every week there seems to be some sort of backlash against certain posters out of disagreement/opposing opinions towards their inquiry or topic in general. Of course it can make for an entertaining read. I am asking if you take an outcome of argumentation into consideration when beginning a thread.
My brother's girlfriend brought home this dessert or type of quiche(?) for Christmas this year. I had a bite and couldn't figure out what it was supposed to be. I should of asked her, duh, but I forgot and am curious if any of you have tried it. It was super dense, heavy, and covered in pine nuts; sort of sweet and savory at the same time. It was gross.
The thing also gave my Mom a nasty bout of food poisoning when she ate some a few days later.
Yeah I could just try to google it, but I like you guys and what you have to say(; Anyway, what is it?
Last September Consumer Reports released results of their fast food burger poll that called In-N-Out the best and McDonald's the worst. Today they released more chain burger ratings in their member survey of quick-service restaurants, which also covers pizza, Mexican, sandwiches, and chicken chains.
This week , I am not thrilled with anything in my fridge. I tune into cooking channels to get inspiration and all of the reruns make me shut it off. I am tired of browsing the web....food burnout. I have...
