    The Air Fryer topic

    For a SimpleLiving brand hot air fryer, my mom is having problems with frozen chicken tenders and fish sticks coming out very dry, like jerky. She tried cutting cooking time in half, but then they were raw. Any thoughts on what might be going wrong? I don't have one so I can't advise her. TIA

    eGCI Demo: Knishes

    I made potato and ground beef knishes for the first time using puff pastry--amazingly easy, and tasty too!

    What to do with boneless beef ribs?

    I decided to throw them in the slow cooker and braise them in BBQ sauce, we'll see how it turns out.
  5. I looked at the beef short ribs topic, but it seemed to refer to bone-in rib racks mostly. What does one do with BONELESS beef ribs? I picked up a small package because they looked good, but now I don't know what to do with them! A quick web search revealed lots of recipes for 4 or 5 pounds worth -- I've got maybe a pound (just for two people) and I wondered also how that affects the cooking time.
  6. I've been eyeing Le Creuset Dutch ovens, but am wondering what makes them over $300. Are they really that much better than a $60 enameled Dutch oven? If so, why/how?
  7. I got a set of Henckels knives and a bread machine,
  8. I just finished "A Bite Sized History of France" which is a history of France told through the lens of food. I highly recommend it.

    Split peas (green, dried)

    Is there any cooking tip to lessen the gas problem when making split pea soup? Or is this inevitable?

    Non-stick pan suggestions

    I realized it's not nonstick--I guess I put my query in the wrong thread. Thanks for your comment, I'm thinking about it....not liking the learning to cook again part so much lol

    Non-stick pan suggestions

    I'm thinking about buying this: https://www.amazon.com/All-Clad-Stainless-Tri-Ply-Dishwasher-Cookware/dp/B00FUF5K8W/ref=sr_1_3_sspa?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1529189855&sr=1-3-spons&keywords=all+clad&psc=1 and wondered what the hivemind thought about the pan. Good deal? Durable?
  12. Thanks all--I'll test it this weekend and see if it works
  13. it doesn't stick up past the level of the pot lid--it's like a piece of plastic is missing
  14. So my Instant Pot arrived--is this what the pressure valve is supposed to look like? It seems to me that a piece is missing?
