  1. @Shelby, there's something called "cowboy candy" (jalapeños) that are supposed to be really good. I haven't tried making it. It's called "candy," but is eaten as a pickle (with savory foods).

    Breakfast 2020!

    Looks good, @Kim Shook. How did you get your scrambled eggs in those disc shapes?
  3. I subbed coconut oil (for a neutral oil) into a cake and my cake turned out dry. (Had made that cake before and it was not dry.) I always attributed it to the way coconut oil is semi-solid at room temperature. Maybe you had the opposite problem. Coconut oil can also be semi-liquid at room temperature. Maybe that's giving you the oily feel. (You said you subbed it for butter, which would be "solid" at room temperature.)
  4. IIRC, somebody did make these and did post photos of these (chocolate spheres, little marshmallows, etc., inside) on eGullet within the past few months. I've looked around on the threads and can't find the post now. I'll keep looking.
  5. Thanks, @Shelby. When you do the knife thing, do you blanche in advance? I'm guessing you could use a butter knife since you're using the back of the knife? Appreciate your help.
  6. The Red Weapons look really good. I don't always like tomato skins, so serious question: how would you peel those small tomatoes? Like the ones in the photo, below. They look like cherry tomatoes. Thanks in advance!
  7. Pretty amazing to get 2 gallons from 6 turkey necks (plus your vegetables).

    Marsala sauce / gravy?
  9. The prices seem OK to me (Réunion), for what you're getting. Not something I could afford every day, but I would definitely try to support a place like that. That prosecco poached pear galette with hazelnut cream, raspberry crumb, and roasted hazelnut for $4.50 is what I'd eat there. Looks like a kouign amman.
  10. Salsa (canned tomatoes). Prefer fresh tomatoes, but canned is what I had and it's pretty good.

    Dinner 2020

    Not sure about the Korean rice cakes (tteokbokki), but you can pan-fry the Japanese rice cakes (mochi). You get a nice, caramelized crust on the "cakes."

    Lunch 2020

    Lemon grass tofu sandwich (there's lots of tofu in there, underneath the pickled veg) and sweet potato French fries.
  13. I don't mind new-ish developments in fruits. The Honeycrisp apple (delicious, IMO) was developed in a research center at the University of Minnesota, U.S. Seems like you only hear about new fast foods. (I like fast foods, too.) So, it's nice to hear about interest in fruits. No, I won't spend $49 for one pineapple, but I'll try it when the price comes down. Broccoflower, I didn't like.

    Honeycrisp apples are available and tasting pretty good this season (not mealy). Just letting you guys know. Little bit expensive, but hey.

    Dinner 2020

    Black bean "chili" with Swiss cheese & corkscrew pasta. Not my favorite cheese to pair with chili, but it's what I had in the fridge.
