  1. By "egg-only method" I mean the standard preparations of eggs (scrambled hard, soft, medium, poached, over-easy, sunny side up, shirred, etc.). I do not mean egg-containing dishes like frittata, tortilla, quiche, souffle etc. My favorite is over-easy soft. My least favorite is scrambled hard/dry.
  2. Pulled / Shredded Beef

    Isn't this just a variation of pot roast?
  3. Best paella

    I ran across this story in the BBC. It's impossible for me to believe that Adria and Robuchon are wrong but her paella sounds a little bit too simple and one note for my taste. Has anyone ever had Josefa Navarro's paella? http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20160510-the-humblest-paella-beloved-by-chefs
  4. Breakfast! 2016 (Part 1)

    RRO, I guess I could figger this out via Google but your post made me wonder. Is the Australian cold and flu season May through October or something "upside-down" to what we experience in the Northern Hemisphere?
  5. Thanks all. It looks like I have many options. I'm thinking about throwing some toasted pistachios on there too.
  6. Safety question

    Thanks all. I remove the beet chunks after 48 hours. Everything looks fine. I will give everything a test prior to exposing others.
  7. I make a cocktail called a Bolshevik. It has 3 components. 1. Beet vodka (soak peeled raw beets in vodka x 48 hours, drain, store in refrigerator) 2. Basil simple syrup (cook a lot of basil in water, remove, add an equal amount of sugar, boil x 5 minutes, store in fridge) 3. Lemon juice (done fresh). I have some beet vodka and basil simple syrup left over from about 2 months ago. It has been continuously refrigerated and I was careful with cleanliness when making them. Do you think they're still safe to consume?
  8. I might look for some bakeries in the Atlanta area but I'm planning to make a cream cheese ice cream with rhubarb compote later this month (assuming rhubarb ever arrives). I need some kind of textural contrast and our oven is acting sketchy now and I don't trust it. What is your favorite store bought, fairly plain cookie?
  9. 100% cornstarch deep fry batter

    The SE recipe was a success. It was a little bit greasy but I have only myself to blame because I got impatient waiting for the oil to get to 375. It is very crisp and the flavor is good. It's a keeper for me.
  10. Slightly smelly cod

    Hi btbyrd. I portioned and froze the fish the day of purchase (the day it smelled). The bottom line is that it defrosted in the fridge. I did the lemon/water soak and scrub and it still smells. Trash. I bought some chicken tenderloins at Kroger and am defrosting some Trader Joes sole. The chicken is fine. I will make sure the sole is OK, then fry away. Thanks all!
  11. 100% cornstarch deep fry batter

    Thank you btbyrd. I have always appreciated your posts. I will go 50:50 like SE recommends unless you think otherwise.
  12. Hi, I'm doing fish and chips tonight (chicken tenders for backup if fish smell not remediable). The Serious Eats recipe says 1 c flour, 1 c cornstarch, 1 egg, 12 oz beer. What would happen if I used 2 c cornstarch and no flour?
  13. Dinner 2016 (Part 3)

    That looks zer gut rotus.
  14. Slightly smelly cod

    I'm taking the cod out of the freezer with the plan of fish and chips tomorrow. Wish me luck!
