  1. Here's the Miele home version: Miele Pasta cooker
  2. Beef. The new chocolate?

    Same here. Ooh! Maybe a "greens and veggies" bouquet to go with it?
  3. Beef. The new chocolate?

    I was just at the grocery store, Vons (Safeway/Albertsons) and saw this while browsing the meat department. It actually made me laugh out loud. Woman near me looked at me like I was "special" until I lifted the article of my amusement, got an OMG from her.
  4. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    The melamine condiment cup saved you from ultimate depravity. Gives a whiff of respectability to your meal.
  5. Cuisinart Recall

    I worked in housewares at Macy's, we had lots of returns on Cuisinart blenders.
  6. Cuisinart Recall

    Not a single food processor recipe. Well, one, for their blender FP combo, but those blades aren't recalled.
  7. Cuisinart Recall

    Submitted my claims (custom 14 and pro custom 11) December 13. Received the blade for the custom 14 today. Unpacked without incident .
  8. Unusual & unknown kitchen gadgets

    Tuna press. Open can, leave lid in place, insert in press and squeeze.
  9. How'd you brown the cauliflower steak? It's so beautiful and even! Gorgeous!
  10. Oooh! My Preciousss.... Shiny,and All Clad! Only $7!! Soooo jealous! Enjoy! (and you now MUST have fondue for Christmas.)
  11. Armchair chef. All the fun, no mess!
  12. Ditto on Shelby's sad cry... But, I saw the frost on your car. None for me thank you. I hope the first aid kit is going just inside the door of your secured culinary bunker so either of you can get "Two cocktails.STAT!!". I seldom say anything, but really enjoy the Manitoulin visits. Always there in spirit and feel a bit empty when they're over. That "end of vacation" feeling, though I'm sitting at home.
  13. Manitoulin test kitchen

    "They are in the dishwasher now - sadly it seems to have gone tits up again - totally full of dirty dishes!" Sorry about the dishwasher, especially with the amount of cooking you both do, but thank you for the "gone tits up again". Glad I hadn't just taken a drink of my morning tea, would've made an awful mess of my laptop! Love, love,love, your adventures in Manitoulin, the two of you doing these amazing things, under far less than ideal conditions. Always waiting for the next one.
  14. Potato mystery

    Maybe THIS from the Idaho Potato Commission might help. It does discuss potatoes that don't soften.
