    Dinner 2019

    Pork ribs and mashed potatoes
  2. I share your ire at can openers. The electric ones either don't work, or stop working and it's hard to find a good hand-held one.
  3. At the very least, it means more pesticides on/in our foods, and that can't be good.
  4. For any others headed to Colorado Springs, I'm here visiting, and found this gem: http://www.tapateria.com/ Spanish tapas and a (relatively) inexpensive wine list with LOTS of choices,
  5. Reviving this thread as a trip to Colorado Springs/Manitou Springs is imminent. Any good places to eat?
  6. 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!
  9. I decided to throw them in the slow cooker and braise them in BBQ sauce, we'll see how it turns out.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. I got a set of Henckels knives and a bread machine,
  13. 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.
  14. Is there any cooking tip to lessen the gas problem when making split pea soup? Or is this inevitable?
