    Bravo is by definition , trashy. Real Housewives etc. With TC they are showing restraint...Padma’s clothes are still on her. But yeah

    Same here in China. Eggs are always weighed. Here a couple of duck eggs I bought this morning. Sea duck eggs, to be precise. Very fresh. But I was interested in the differing sizes. These are the smallest and largest of the batch. More were at the smaller end of the scale. Those black lines on the mat are 2cm apart.
  4. Had no idea of the Navel orange situation. Fascinating. Thanks Smithy

    A coney is a hot dog in the Michigan area, not sure if it's other parts of the MidWest.

    Cheese Fondue

    I did a boiling oil French Toast buffet for a brunch once. Cubes of French bread, batter and various toppings. I, too, was terrified about that. Also, it was a terrific mess. Delicious, but not well thought out and never repeated.

    Sorry. It's a little paper tray that they serve their chili cheese dog/coney in. Large enough to accommodate a six-inch bun, weiner and accoutrements. Same thing, different size, as the paper trays lots of places use for sandwiches, fries, etc.
  14. OHHHHH how did you like this cheese? I bought some from Zingerman's. LOVED IT. In fact, I just ordered more just a bit ago.

    Cheese Fondue

    In the late 70's I was invited to a boiling oil fondue. I quite enjoyed it but was sure that before the night was out that someone was going to be rushed to the ER. My friends were drinking a lot. I might have been too. I would love a cheese fondue to have pieces of pepperoni sticks, pretzels and some kinds of battered onion petal or part of an onion ring. Have fun with your new toy @HungryChris

    Ok, so a coney island tray is a baking pan. What is a coney tray, a disposable CIT?

    Top Chef 16: Kentucky

    I agree with you about her mostly over the top wardrobe...she's way too smart and accomplished for that. The folk at Bravo need to pull their heads out.
  19. One from this morning that, I believe, has been on sale before. "At Home with Magnolia: Classic American Recipes from the Founder of Magnolia Bakery" Kindle Edition $2.99US Not just baked goods...this includes other types of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

    Am I the only one who thinks Padma seriously loses cred for dressing so blatantly sexual? She has many times before, but for some reason this was more "in your face". Brave.... you're pandering again and letting me down. I love Top Chef but this is the sort of thing that to my mind, takes away authenticity.
  21. For just today (11 Dec), over in Bezosville, the Blendtec Total Classic is $169.95 shipped.

    Troubleshooting tempering

    Yes you can - melt it down and reseed. Is it milk, white or dark? Temperature you reseed to will depend.

    Troubleshooting tempering

    Can you temper chocolate that has bloomed? I've seen some responses from friends that have said to melt down bloomed chocolate to 115 and then use a new 'seed.' But haven't tried it yet. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Grocery Shopping

    @Anna N - Great price on those duck breasts. King Cole? I really like our local Pat's supermarket (Korean chain) - they often have some very interesting finds.

    @Thanks for the Crepes this is one article about the Instacart/ Trader Joe’s disagreement: https://www.geekwire.com/2013/amazon-fresh-rival-instacart-stops-trader-joes-delivery/ google brings up lots others. I wish it wasn’t true too.
  27. I have no idea how the cocoa particles look like, for example, can they trap water and swell so that they will be smoother on the tongue? In any case, even though I think you are correct, I will give it a try, perhaps the overall feeling in the mouth is different.
