  1. Wow that meal looks great and amazing. I don't think I had ever eaten an Estonian meal. I am sure he feels lucky to have some really great friends that are so considerate.
  2. Hungarian cucumber salad

    uborkasalata The author in the blog states the vinegar in Hungary is much stronger than in the US, so you add less. Hopefully this recipe and blog will help. AlaMoi : Germans also have A Krautsalat, that is slightly sweet, vinegary, sometimes with a small kick from white pepper. It usually contains cabbage, a little onions and some green peppers. Addictive.
  3. Dinner 2015 (Part 6)

    I need to find my camera and take pictures. Everyone's beautiful food is making me hungry andI just ate dinner. The ramen and spring rolls Shelby made and the warm spiced cauliflower what Fauxpas made may be detrimental to my laptop. We had a simple salad of andouille sausage fried, carrots corn, shaved carrots and mixed lettuce. Dressed in a homemade sherry mustard vinaigrette. We also had roasted ripe plantains with mozzarella. I had planned to stuff the plantains with the mozzarella and roast but one of the plantains refused the ripen, so I sliced the remaining two and roasted them served with mozzarella to spread the wealth. No pictures again.
  4. Dinner 2015 (Part 6)

    Made the Bonci pizza dough recipe a couple nights ago. Not as good as in rome but it was delicious. We had it simply with cheese salami, mozzarella, with a side of salad. No pictures as it was devoured so fast. The recipe made so much dough that I used another quarter of the dough to make some flat bread for a breakfast bahji recipe I served with eggs. We had them all for dinner and they were great. I still have half of the dough left over, and I am sure it will appear sometime this week for lunch.
  5. Dishwasher detergent

    I wonder if the salt compartment will become as popular in the states as it is here in Europe. They keep our glasses from becoming white with calcium, as the water here is terribly hard. I cannot stand to use the finish powerball tabs they etch the glasses and wipe the designs off our coffee cups. We usually use Evcover brand if we can find it, or Frosch brand. Seems to do a good job and not etching or wiping off of the designs off our cups.
  6. Dinner 2015 (Part 6)

    Made pizza taglio, from the Bonci recipe today. Topped the pizza with crushed tomatoes, salami, and mozzarella. It was really good. The youngest critic told it me it was much better than anything at the grocery store. Better than the restaurants we tried but definitely not as good as in Rome. I guess I will keep practicing. We also has a simple salad on the side with radishes, which was nice to round the meal.
  7. I know this is terribly late but the noodles you are looking for are called Jjolmyeon (쫄면). I haven't found a recipe to make the noodles themselves. The story goes that the owner of a noodles making factory made the noodles with too much starch and made them larger diameter then the noodles specified. They gave them away to their neighbors and that was that. It is super popular noodle in Korea.There seems to be no recipes but the ingredients for the noodles are : wheat, cornstarch, wine,salt, alkali (sodium bicarbonate/Sodium Carbonate). I think they are pressed through a die cutter 3mm in diameter. I hope this helps.
  8. Quick Barcelona Trip

    This is making me want go back to Barcelona again. Thank you so very much. I now having such a serious hankering...
  9. How to tone down habanero sauce?

    Besides adding more ingredients, sweetener, and time to tame the spiciness, you can cook it for longer. The longer the pepper is cooked the spiciness will decrease. I don't know what it will to the rest of your salsa and if you don't mind a more cooked flavor.
  10. This is a stable dish for us for breakfast the Egg and Tomato dish. I skip the sugar even being in Germany the tomatoes are still too sweet to add the sugar. Now it has morphed into a lot of different variations, and everyone we have fed it to has loved it. The soy sauce avocado and tofu, was good also, but we have been eating that since I was a child. I didn't associate it with chinese food more of the fact that family members loved tofu, hot mustard/horseradish/ and avocado, so it was a no brainer to slap it together. It is so interesting. I don't get to eat this often as avocados are more expensive here than in California. The dan dan noodles are good, but they are usually always good. Now if I can convince other people to make it for me on demand. Hmmm sounds like dinner tonight!
  11. Wonderful Gfron. I cannot wait to see all your hard work.
  12. Shiso

    My Perilla is just starting to grow. I love them, but the last few years I have had not enough and let them get tough before I used them. Hopefully this time around I will harvest the leaves earlier to eat with my Korean BBQ, kimchi making, seasoning,salad making etc.
  13. Sorry the recipe for the crackers start around 10.45 minutes. You don't need everything she puts in, you can use only the puffed rice. 8 cups of brown rice 1 C rice syrup/corn syryp 1/2 C of brown sugar 1/2 C Roasted peanuts 1/2 C pumpkin seeds 1/2 C pine nuts some slices of ginger Some type of flour from Chejudo to make it pretty and taste better. (?) She does two batches out of these ingredients because she makes two types. Place brown sugar and rice syrup in a pan place ginger slices for flavoring into the pan. Cook until you get "strings" falling from the spoon used to mix. Add the puffed rice nuts mixture on low heat and mix thoroughly. Put on gloves plastic or rubber rubbed with oil with the tray oiled. Roll into a flat rectangle, balls or you can roll them with an oiled sushi roller into cylinders. Do this before everything it gets cold or they will break. If anyone has better Korean, and can fill in or add please do! Sorry I do not work or affiliated with this SOSTV. It just was one of the first videos I found while looking it up that had the ingredients listed or stated.
  14. Here is a recipe but it is all in Korean. From what I can gather looking at other recipes it seems like it is approximately 1 C of puffed rice to 1:1 ratio of sugar and rice syrup. Cook to the thread stage, add the puffed rice, and then form on oiled surface, and cut. The recipe above I think illustrates it pretty well, but her ratios are a little different, I think. I am tired and heading up to bed. If you want me to or if someone else wants they can tell you the recipe in the video. Sorry If I am not making sense.
  15. Curing/fermenting egg yolks

    Well apparently you can cure egg yolks with store bought gochujang.
