  1. It would be a test of a diners adaptability for sure!
  2. Now that IP hard cooked eggs have come up again it’s reminded me that I have a question. Has anyone else had “self peeling” eggs? This was about the third time it’s happened. I’ve not had more than 2 eggs per batch do it. I’m doing 1c water, 6 to 9 eggs direct from refrigerator, on IP trivet, 5 minutes on high, 5 minutes natural release, ice water. Shell is “popped” like that when I open the IP. Always come out perfectly done. Thoughts, theories and insights welcome!
  3. Aaaand... one can also get a Laser sight to go with!🤣
  4. @blue_dolphin inspired me to post. This is from the Vons (a division of Albertsons) app. Calling it cuisine is bad enough, but international? I guess the brand name fooled them.😂 The section also included salsa, taco shells and soy sauce.
  5. Here it is. Or at least a very close relation.😀
  6. Thanks so much for the link to your first blog. So much backstory that I missed.
  7. Considering the situation it’s a perfect solution. 🔥
  8. 3 lbs. baby back ribs. 167F for 4 hours, then sear/glaze over charcoal.
  9. Double mistake, I didn’t realize that those were all separate venues, must have been in “skim” mode earlier. Still, huge difference between the two establishments.
  10. Re: Your lunch at the country club. I can see why you were disappointed, what’s lunch without an indoor skydiving session. 😂
  11. Funny considering how often I see things online along the lines of “a few minuets“ as a reference to time.
  12. Uh oh, I seem to have crossed over to the enabler side!
  13. Thanks to your question I looked further and the answer is YES and they are sold by the Oui maker, Yoplait. $3.99 for 4 lids in blue or clear, plus $3.91 shipping for up to 3 four packs.
  14. @Smithy Here’s the US equivalent . Not quite as curvy and sexy.
  15. Finally, someone else that makes tea the way I do.😀 And drinks it in the same quantities.
  16. @Anna N helps kittens/cats on their journey through life, you help unloved kitchenware/small appliances. 😂
  17. Is the insert sitting directly on the bottom of the cooking pot?
  18. For the “rebus impaired” among us there’s THIS.
  19. As @Anna N said, steam, then for mine, 30 seconds in ice water before peeling.
  20. @Anna N Thank you, the two minute IP Mini egg is perfect for me. Fully set white, lovely cooked but liquid yolk. Mmmm...
  21. Not yet, and I’ve done some questionable thing as far as liquid levels go.
  22. 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.
  23. Great stuff!! Many “Happy hours” ahead. Are those spoons in the bannetons? Merry Christmas!
  24. 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.
