  1. I got a set of Henckels knives and a bread machine,
  2. 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?
  6. I'm sipping Asian Pear Cordial made by a friend of mine.
  7. Thanks all--I'll test it this weekend and see if it works
  8. it doesn't stick up past the level of the pot lid--it's like a piece of plastic is missing
  9. 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?
  10. After reading all these threads, I ordered a 6 qt Instant Pot yesterday. Does anyone have cookbook recommendations for it?

    Best / Worst "Budget" Wines

    The best, more reliable, relatively cheap ($9-12USD) per bottle are from Columbia Crest. I've never had a bad wine from them, and you can usually find them in grocery stores.
