  1. You have no idea! With the most diverse population in the world, comes some great cuisine!!
  2. This one's easy.... It's used to scratch all those hard to reach places!
  3. I wish I could do more of this. Part of my plan for retirement is moving north, on water, to be able to hunt and fish for what we eat. It is how life was meant to be lived, which humans have sadly strayed too far from. The only 'hunting' I do is for wild edibles (black raspberries, mushrooms, various edible greens, etc). Would love to see more so I can live vicariously through pics, for now; at least
  4. Favorite Homemade Sauces for Pasta

    Though we do not eat a ton of pasta, lately in the rotation have been: Carbonara (always in the rotation!) Cacio e Pepe Tomato reduction with good quality tinned tuna Porcini/Truffle Pecorino Very soon however... Ramp/Asparagus (get your rear end in gear, Mother Nature!!!)
  5. Corn Husk Scraper!
  6. Perhaps to scrape the meat/fat off of a (small) hide?
  7. I bet if you fed your patients this stuff instead of the gruel hospitals pass off as food these days, recovery times would be halved!! That bread....!
  8. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Any chance on getting the recipe for your potato dumplings? They look great and I think my kids might just love them!
  9. Overthinking. At the end of the day, so long as you do not arrive empty handed, you are in the right. There is no wrong here (unless you go bat-shit crazy and bring a complete wine and cheese spread, trying to trump their offering, that might be construed as slightly insulting....). People often bring wine to my house and I already have one open or decanted, leaving theirs if we want another bottle. No eyes batted, no feelings hurt. Just bring....something!
  10. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Chag Sameach Lekulam! That looks fantastic, Shain. My mom made quite a spread last night for 15 of us, some fantastic duck fat (typical is chicken fat, this year she tried my idea on for size!) matzah balls & chicken soup, confit duck legs, beef brisket, meatloaf, braised red cabbage, tzimmus (shredded carrots / raisins ), cucumber salad, pureed spinach, beet salad, sweet potatoes, and the list goes on.
  11. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Any particular type of apple? Very interesting combination, I will have to give it a go! Oh, and if you do not already, buy your pickled herring pieces at Costco! For around $1 more, you get a huge jar of the beasties...my 2 year old loves them, so this size should last a bit longer than the last few.

    Interesting - would love to hear a bit more about said spread. Just made some schmaltz, perhaps that + apples would work....
  13. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Curious what you slather under your herring, Anna... Lunch today, simple but delicious - Rahier Baguette Cumbrae's fresh churned Quebec salted butter Copious amounts of Prosciutto Di Parma
  14. Oh this excites me! The snow has melted and my little crocus's and yellow doodad flowers are popping up, along with tulip leaves and a few others, a sure sign that spring has sprung and soon us North Eastern'ers will be able to forage for delights as well. First up, wild asparagus and ramps!!! Curious to see how my transplanted ramp patch does this year.

    From the flesh and skin patterns, they almost look like a species from the Mackerel family.
