    Pasta Inserts

    Is the insert sitting directly on the bottom of the cooking pot?

    For the “rebus impaired” among us there’s THIS.
  3. As @Anna N said, steam, then for mine, 30 seconds in ice water before peeling.
  4. @Anna N Thank you, the two minute IP Mini egg is perfect for me. Fully set white, lovely cooked but liquid yolk. Mmmm...
  5. Not yet, and I’ve done some questionable thing as far as liquid levels go.

    Smart Speakers in the Kitchen

    Google Home mini here. Love, love, love, the multiple hands free timers! Would buy again, even if that was all it did. Still exploring the capabilities though.
  7. Great stuff!! Many “Happy hours” ahead. Are those spoons in the bannetons? Merry Christmas!

    The first time I tried it, it was with the same “This is probably a really bad idea” thoughts. It’s now my go to way for rice. I cook a bunch and food saver it in 2 cup portions, takes up almost no space in the freezer, and after a few minutes in the microwave hot, fluffy rice! I cook, cool to room temp then bag it.
  9. Great backup for “no power days”. Thanks!
  10. "Beauty aids the appetite". Love it!

    While I do know the difference between an arthropod and an orthopod, my mind still takes me to a scenario where you're being injected by something more akin to a wasp or bee, especially with the butter tarts involved.

    Uh oh! Now I'm in trouble! Thank you, you are how I want to be when (if) I grow up.
