    Food recalls

    Hello all, We checked the numbers on our package of Kirkland veggie burgers and although the UPC number is a match...the code on product is not at all. So, I am assuming ours are completely fine. One always wonders how metal and rubber and plastic bits, etc, etc, etc, get into the mix. Thanks again chromedome. I am actually getting these Canadian recall warnings also but I do appreciate the trouble that you, and Toliver, go to on our behalf. (Also I am still not actually 'online' until after I get hand surgery...if I do before the next millenium...)

    I must say, the only thing I truly miss after going Gluten Free are my pizza's. Seeing these fantastic pizza shots does not help matters! I need a 'Pizza filter', mods! Re: the Basil Glut - I have used Italian basil many times as a substitute for Holy Basil in the famous (and equally delicious) Thai dish - Pad Kra Pao. Very easy to make and it is absolutely delicious!

    High quality soy sauce

    For dips etc, I am partial to this brand, which has a deeper, more complex flavour than most. but for day to day cooking, I just use a regular popular brand. The other flavours tend to dominate anyway, so I'm not about to use a brand that costs 30 times more!.

    High quality soy sauce

    I always though that Tamari was high-end soy sauce, because it has a richer flavor.

    Easter Menus

    I am very lucky that my MIL offered to do Easter dinner this year. Pretty sure she is doing a ham, some kind of potatoes, asparagus and hot yeast rolls. Not sure about dessert. Jessica is bringing deviled eggs and I'm doing Instant Pot collards (I don't like asparagus). I usually love doing Easter dinner, but this year is tough. Too much going on with my mom's health and financial issues and for some reason Holy Week is kicking my butt this year. Church every night - plus we did the midnight to 1am shift sitting in church tonight (meaning last night, I guess), then I am helping Jessica do chocolate dipped strawberries for serving with champagne after the Easter vigil Saturday night. And it happens to coincide this year with my turn at shopping for supplies for 100 lunches that we take once a month to homeless shelters in town. I'll shop tomorrow, help make lunches Saturday morning and then stay at church to do the strawberries! So, collards only works very well for me this year! 😉

    You’d be surprised! She loves veggies and meat but certain things she pretends to eat (hides) and asks for more. 🙈 since salt isn’t good for dogs this is all me dreaming of tea oil!

    Easter Menus

    Wow, now that’s an Easter spread! everything sounds wonderful. we have a grass fed, free range lamb source. The meat is so tender and flavourful we are not keen to do much to it other than salt and pepper so the meat can shine through.

    Food recalls

    Foreign matter (pieces of metal) in Kirkland veggie burgers. Possibly national. http://inspection.gc.ca/about-the-cfia/newsroom/food-recall-warnings/complete-listing/2019-04-18/eng/1555625098697/1555625100775
  16. Too many!!! Someone asked me, how do you know which ones have which recipes to follow? I usually tell them, I don't really copy specific recipes in practice, all of these books I read are really just for ideas, techniques, but I rarely copy a recipe verbatim in practice.

    High quality soy sauce

    I love a really high quality soy sauce. I can eat my own fingers just by dipping it into. I love trying new soy sauces, small batch, very terroir oriented. But I have to admit, Kikkomen's Low Sodium soy sauce is pretty damn good.

    Cilantro

    Funny you say that, I have some green curry simmering on the stove right now. I'm too lazy to make curry paste so I used some jarred Thai Kitchen product. It does not list cilantro on the ingredients, but I will be adding a generous amount to my bowl.

    Dinner 2019

    Like @David Ross , I made gougères. But I made them last week so they had gotten a little stale by today. Upscale Squirrel loves Jacques Pepin gougères:
  21. Currently I'm sipping on their strawberry-rhubarb milkshake IPA. I tried a taste of it the other day out of morbid curiosity, and to my surprise I quite liked it. The fruit is definitely perceptible, but it takes a back seat to the hops. I'm not a fan of fruit-infused beers in general, but this one's very good. They do a tour. If you're passing this way, let me know. As I said upthread it's only a few blocks from my door, and I'd be happy to meet.

    Oh my! Checking my AMEX points! Jealous! Frying the curry leaves like sage makes culinary sense
  25. I can't believe how many restaurants have bathroom door locks with "twist the little knob to lock or unlock". If you go to any hardware store, you will see that bathroom door locks always have a pushbutton to lock, and unlock when you turn the knob. But of course the really best thing if you care about your customers is a plain knob with no lock, and a separate airplane bathroom door type lock (except usually they rotate rather than slide) that shows "VACANT" in green or "OCCUPIED" in red. I mean, why not respect your customers, and why make your staff endlessly try the door handle (picking up germs) in order to find out of the bathroom is free?

    Cilantro

    I agree with pesto or treat it as the green in a stir fry or soup. the pugenny goes way, It is just a green veg. Same with basil or parsley.
  27. Actually, pre EZtemper I used to temper this by putting in a bowl over another bowl of cold water and stirring until starts to thicken.
