What are your go to breakfasts these days? Do you eat the same thing every day or switch it up?
So, I follow Leela of She Simmers and have read some excellent literature from her and elsewhere on the proper method of making Thai Curries.
First, fry the coconut cream, then add the curry paste and fry until the oil separates and the curry cracks.
Finally, after attempting this forever, I got my curry to crack properly. I am pleased with myself.
Now, my husband, being a skeptic (I am too, but to a lesser extent) demanded to know why you crack the curry.
And I can't find an answer! I contacted Leela directly via her Facebook page, but all she said was that cracking it was correct and there was a reason for it, but she didn't say what. So what's the actual reason?
So, my husband brought home a chunk of something called Mezcal from Gonzalez Northgate Market. It appears to be a chunk of agave, smoked or steamed.
We can't find anything about it online. He just tore some strips off of it and ate it, and he really loves it. For me, I can't eat it because the smoky smell makes me feel like my throat is going to close up.
So, what is this stuff exactly and what does one do with it? It's very sweet.
So, I've realized that I have a hard time digesting onions. Green onions seem to treat me okay as do garlic and leeks.
Cooking without onions is not an option to me. Too many delicious foods require onions.
But, does anyone have any suggestions for aiding the digestion of onions? I am not allergic to them, they just make my guts bubble and ache. Anyone else have this...unpleasantness?
The new Serious Eats dating ads are very pervasive and kind of weird. Is there any way to see different ads, or just what's the deal with it in general?
Hi Serious Eats! I'm a huge fan and I love the site, but I am very sad you are bringing in the Media Force ads. I'd rather see ads for Pilsbury or Illy or anything else other than "WE CAN'T STOP STARING AT THIS TESTOSTERONE SUPPLEMENT" and so on.
I understand that ads are a contentious part of the site and I am fine with seeing ads, sponsored posts and the like, but the MediaForce ads are just trashy looking and horrible.
We've all complained about ooey, unctuous, and moist, but what words make you want to eat something?
For me, I always want to make a recipe if the writer suggests I serve it with "plenty of" anything. "Plenty of hot coffee," or "plenty of steamed rice." That always gets me ready to cook.
What words make you hungry?
Boyfriend and I are going to Orange County in September. This will be boyfriend's first visit to southern California as an adult, and I want him to try a really good fried fish taco. I've had them at Baja Fish and Rubio's, but is there somewhere better I should be taking him?
We're going to have a car and be mobile. I've also spent a large amount of time in SoCal, so I'm fairly familiar with the area.
