  1. I have seen some people start seeds in the instant pot with the yogurt function successfully. Maybe that's worth a shot? Good luck!
  2. Breville Smart Oven Air- ASIN B01N5UPTZS Sorry, the link isn't inserting. Amazon has it for 23% Off...($308.95) I just pulled the trigger and got one. Even though I just got the Cuisinart Air Fryer Oven on BF... LOL. Host's note: here's the Amazon link: Breville Smart Oven Air (I have no idea why it wouldn't go up in the top line.)
  3. That looks amazing. Would you care to share or link the recipe pretty please?
  4. What about something like this? BUNN MCU Single Cup Multi-Use Home Coffee Brewer It brews kcups, pods or just plain ground coffee. Reviews seem to be really good.

    Onions are cheap right now... $0.39/lb for yellow onions. So guess what's cooking? The whole apartment SMELLS of onions... 6 large yellow onions 1/2 cup butter 1/4 cup olive oil 1/4 tsp brown sugar 1 tsp of beef base. Splash of pinot gris Now the waiting begins...
  7. I've had good luck with surla table. http://www.surlatable.com/category/TCA-6043/Tart-Pans?cleanSession=true&pCat=SCA-6039 They have the 2" ones as well.

    Onion Confit

    I made it in my sanyo rice cooker (which has a slow cooker function) and it worked well. Took about 12 hrs from start to finish and it smells soooo good! There's no high/low setting though so its either on high or on warm so I just set it on high for a few hrs, let it warm for a few and then high for a few etc until I was satisfied.
  11. This sounds really weird but if I want/need ginger for like a quick stir fry or dish where ginger is just an accent and not the dominant flavor, I just grab Gari. Yes. The pickled ginger that sushi places serve. I get a jar of that for around $3 at the asian supermarkets and it lasts forever. The sweet vinegary brine that it sits in doesn't affect the flavor of whatever I'm cooking (so far), and all I have to do is grab a few slivers (or more) and decide whether to use it whole, or julienne it since its already sliced up for me. It is always in the fridge, fast, easy, no waste, and... Did I mention it lasts forever? If i want to use regular ginger (not that often now though), I peel it using an oxo vegetable peeler and then slice/chop/mince with a chinese cleaver. Works well.
  12. Found this gadget while randomly surfing~ http://www.japantrendshop.com/ame-wataame-...aker-p-195.html REALLY expensive, but if it works... Kinda cool to think what the cotton candy would taste like with different candy and if you could mix different candy!
  13. Is it bad that I'm checking this thread a few times a day? I can't wait!! Looking forward to the blog~
  14. I like getting bottles (they have quite a few kinds!) at http://www.specialtybottle.com/ And the labels I got once from http://www.myownlabels.com/ was really good quality and came quite fast after ordering too. Hope this helps.
