  2. A belated thank you to everyone who responded regarding my country ribs issue. A local grocery store had them on sale so I thought I would attempt cooking them again. I put a nice spice rub on them, placed them in a tin foil-lined pan with tin foil on top and baked them for 2 hours at 275°F Then I took them out of the oven and slathered them with BBQ Sauce. I put them back in, uncovered, for another hour. They were so tender I could have shredded them with just a blunt spoon. They were not dried out, they were not tough. They were just perfect. Plus, the BBQ sauce ended u
  3. Some finds from this afternoon: From Top Chef's Fabio Viviani, "Fabio's Italian Kitchen" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to the green block that has text in it, which is the recipes from the first chapter. Scroll further down to see recipes. "Williams-Sonoma Comfort Food: Recipes for Classic Dishes & More" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see the first chapter's recipe listings and scroll further down to see some recipes. Reci
  4. Rule #1: When guests leave, they take some leftovers home with them. Period. Buy disposable containers to make it easier. Rule #2: My mom always made faux TV dinners with leftovers which we kids were thrilled with. Rule #3: Freeze what you don't think you can eat and eat it some other time. Rule: #4: Repurpose the food. I have a friend that would shred the turkey into the stuffing and stirred in the green beans, all served with hot leftover gravy on top...a sort of casserole that used up 4 food items at one time. Consider it a challenge to your food sensibilities to create new d
  5. I believe the reviewer was talking about copying and pasting from the e-cookbook into her recipe software (which I think she called it "Paprika"). Maybe she needs to join "Eat Your Books" so she doesn't have to do that.
  6. One from my BookBub email and one other find: "The Farmer's Kitchen Handbook: More Than 200 Recipes for Making Cheese, Curing Meat, Preserving, Fermenting, and More (Handbook Series)" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Recipes are listed under the months of the year. Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see the January and February listings and corresponding recipes. A negative review pointed out that the "preserving/canning/sausage making" aspect of this book is given short shrift. "The American Table: Classic Comfort Food from Across
  7. I normally go down to my brother's home for Thanksgiving but I am thinking twice about it this year, given the Pandemic. I haven't broached the subject with him, yet, but time is ticking away so I have to tell him sooner rather than later. Extended family members, who just got back from driving around the US (during a Pandemic? Really? ) will be there, as well. I may wait until Christmas to make a trip down to his home. I've never missed a Thanksgiving spent with my family but this year is very different than any year before. I guess there's always a first time.
  8. My older brother is new to Amazon, if you can believe it (plus he and his wife are Prime members). He told me he was upset because nothing "spoke" to him during the Prime Day sale. He said he didn't want any of the Amazon electronic devices which were featured, of course, and marked down. I told him he should be happy he didn't spend a penny. I told him to make use of his Wishlist and put things on it that he might like. Then, wait for Black Friday or the holiday sales beyond and check to see if any item he wanted was on sale. That made a lot of sense to him so he's biding his time. I wil
  9. Funny story regarding my most recent post above: I was originally going to post three cookbooks. But between the time I cut and paste all the information and then checked the links to make sure they worked properly, the price of the third cookbook had jumped up $11US. It shocked the heck outta me that the price change happened so quickly and that's why there are only two cookbooks in that post. Some finds from this afternoon: From the award-winning food writer and author of Mashed, Holly Herrick's "The French Cook: Sauces" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)
  10. "Meat lovers rush to enter Hormel drawing for bacon-scented face masks" There is a link in the article which I've copied here (click) in case you would like to enter the contest which ends October 28th..
  11. As @liuzhou mentioned, you can make wonderful Chinese food without a wok as evidenced by @hzrt8w's eGullet Chinese food pictorials (click)...not a wok in sight.
  12. A repost and anther cookbook: "Federal Donuts: The (Partially) True Spectacular Story" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Sort of a retelling of how they got started but with recipes, too. Not just doughnuts but chicken and rubs and doughnut glazes, etc. Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the recipes listings. Though be warned the feature operated in an odd manner (pages not there...then they appear) when I looked inside. This is slightly more expensive, plus it has been previously posted. Am reposting it just because... Vivian Howard's "Deep Run R

  14. Did you look under "Lightning Deals" or "Prime Day Deals" up at the top in the black banner? I keep seeing the IP's floating in there. I got a silicone spatula set (4 spatulas) for something like $11. It included a skinny jar scraper spatula which is what I actually wanted...the other three spatulas in the set are just the icing on the proverbial cake.
