  1. Sorry, try Sriracha Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Chips.
  2. Made this, came out great. Color me impressed! We both enjoyed the flavors, portions were generous, directions were clear and simply presented. So far I'm happy.
  3. I just received and unpacked my HelloFresh order. Very nicely packed. Produce cool, meat cold and only one casualty after riding around for 6+ hours in a UPS truck on a 100f day. The casualty was a little bunch of fresh basil, it was at the bottom of one of the produce boxes, unfortunately that put it on top of the ice pack. So, it was actually freeze damage, not what I was expecting. Dinners for Tonight , Wednesday and Thursday taken care of. I'll report back later this evening.
  4. Will have Plan B in place for the 22nd. @patris, who delivered yours FedEx or UPS? We're in the California desert. If it's delivered FedEx it should be fine, if it rides around in a big brown truck all day it's not going to be pretty.
  5. Okay, I'm in. I'll blame @patris, her description of her food rut fits me all too well, and seeing a real life example of the box content and the final dish was inspirational. Finding a Groupon for $40 off the first box, plus $20 off the second helped. I'm doing the Hello Fresh "Classic" omnivore plan 3 meals/2 person per week. First delivery is May 22nd.
  6. Here's the Miele home version: Miele Pasta cooker
  7. Beef. The new chocolate?

    Same here. Ooh! Maybe a "greens and veggies" bouquet to go with it?
  8. 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.
  9. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

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

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

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

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

    Tuna press. Open can, leave lid in place, insert in press and squeeze.
  14. How'd you brown the cauliflower steak? It's so beautiful and even! Gorgeous!
