    Krispy Kreme

    I’m not sure I’ve ever had anything other that the original glazed that was worth the calories, or worth passing up another original glazed.
  2. Rabbit and Hare are very different creatures on the plate and require very different treatment. Rabbit is very delicate, Hare not so much. Never heard of jugged rabbit. The vinegar and spices would obliterate what makes rabbit special. Hank Shaw has a very nice section on his site for cooking both rabbit and hare. it’s a great topic. Eager to see what folks cook up.
  3. Agree. Beets in particular roasted at 425 are fantastic for a number of applications.
  4. It’s a bit small to braise in or cook beans, although those are things I love to do. maybe a very small cut like lamb shanks for two or a shakshuka. Except for it being a gift from your BF, I would put it on eBay. Somewhere out there is someone who will love it.
  5. Agree 100%. As mentioned by Weinoo, the Staub goes on sale for 100 bucks each Christmas season. It’s criminal to pass on it at that price. To answer the original question. I think a Dutch oven will work as well as anything and is the most versatile option if you are considering a purchase.
  6. Could also work with applejack or a fruit brandy.
  7. Ad copy says it pairs with rosemary and lemon. Makes me think gin. Maybe with a lemon peel garnish. But there are a number of folks on the site with better cocktail knowledge than me.
  8. None of the items you listed would be on my short list of indispensable kitchen items. The mandolin is the most practical of the three, and very useful if it suits your style of cooking. The smoking gun and grill will sit and collect dust. The Kyocera slicer Margaret Pilgrim mentioned would be a nice stocking stuffer type gift. I’ve used one for years and find it does 90% of the things I would do on a mandolin. They are inexpensive, don’t take up much space and would let you get a sense if a real mandolin is something you would use often. If the slicer sees a lot of work, you could look to upgrade to a real mandolin later. Items I personally find very useful: 1) If you don’t already have a high quality sauce pan and frying pan I would upgrade. Demeyere, which I like very much ,goes on sale around Christmas. 2) A high quality Dutch oven. Staub often puts a 3.5 quart oven on sale at this time of year. 3) Vitaprep/Vitamix 4) Microplane grater 5) Unicorn peppergrinder 6) Japanese knives if you don’t already have a high quality chef’s knife 7) Thermopen or thermopop. After that I’d personally rather spend the money on ingredients I’d be excited about using than tools.
  9. Enjoy your purchase. Use it in the best of health.
  10. She could write. And argue. And cook. The world is a poorer place without her. RIP
  11. 1) Slice up some garlic cloves. Pinch of red pepper flakes. Heat, but do not brown in olive oil. 2) Make some pasta. Add with a bit of retained water to pan. 3) off heat, add lemon juice, canned tuna, parsley, capers. Olives would be good too. Salt as needed
  12. I am jealous every time I see your CSA. Mine has not risen to the occasion, I'm thinking or restarting my "I hate my CSA thread." Beans are Jacob's Cattle?
  13. Looks incredible. They are asking for an order of at least 24 cans for free shipping. At 7 bucks a can that would be an interesting conversation with Mrs. Dr. Teeth.
  14. Good thought. Know your audience
  15. I will agree Ortiz is a cut above anything else I've tried. Current price on amazon is highway robbery, IMO. I have used plain old Genova for pasta sauces with very good results and the current price is less than a sixth the cost of Ortiz when I just checked. Fishing vessel St Jude looks very interesting, may have to order from them.
  16. I got one of these grills along with an electric skillet for my 7 year old to start learning to cook on. He would go nuts for these pork chops.
  17. Wood handle makes me think it doesn't go into deep fat. The fact that it has a lid that seals makes me think it does get submerged when used. Maybe a tea fob? or an infuser, like instead of a cheese cloth bundle.

    Dinner 2020

    That’s a really pretty looking chicken. The skin looks great. What weren’t you happy with about it?
  19. Sorry that happened to you. My wife and I have had really good luck with our shoppers. Usually one of us is online with the shopper when they go through the store. We’ve gotten a couple of things that were sold out online but that they actually had in the store when we asked the shopper. We tip well, too.
  20. Chocolate is super as well. Or both together.
  21. So just turn it off when you discuss top secret information. You can unplug it while you discuss the nuclear codes. I would have thought q branch would have shown you how to do that.
  22. Alexa how many cups in a quart? How many Celsius is 450 Fahrenheit. What’s in a gimlet? Alexa set a reminder to take the garbage out on Wednesday. It’s kinda transformative
  23. It can keep multiple timers at the same time and you can name them. Like Alexa set a cookie timer for five minutes. And it plays music. And keeps shopping lists. And my kids think it’s funny when I yell at it
  24. I use the Alexa thing from Amazon.

    Bad food?

    umm. Botulinum is an obligate anaerobe. There is no chance it grows on a potato sitting out an a counter. What you would be worried about is staph food poisoning, which will make you sick, but isn’t fatal.
