  1. A classic, previously posted here...on sale again: Marcella Hazan's "Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  2. My brother grows his own chile peppers and also grinds a lot of the dried peppers into flakes which he hands out as gifts to family members every year. They tend to be quite spicy hot, hotter than the chile flakes you can buy in the stores. I gave him my food dehydrator years ago to dry his peppers, but now he doesn't bother with it. Once he reaps the peppers from the bushes, they go into a flat wicker basket in his kitchen to air dry. The wicker basket allows air to circulate around the peppers so they dry and don't get moldy. Plus he will stir the picked peppers up once in a while to promote even drying. Then when he goes to grind up the dried peppers into flakes using a dedicated electric coffee grinder, he does it outside (very important!) while wearing safety goggles so the fine pepper "mist" generated from the grinding is prevented from causing him to tear up. The first time he ground up peppers, he did it inside his house and it was as if someone had set off a tear gas bomb inside. Live and learn.
  3. Found this afternoon... From the chef/owner of the famed Atlanta restaurant and Food Network competition winner Suzanne Vizethann's "Welcome to Buttermilk Kitchen" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  4. Some new (and old) offerings in the new month... "wagamama Feed Your Soul: Fresh + simple recipes from the wagamama kitchen" Kindle Edition $0.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) "An Irresistible History of Southern Food: Four Centuries of Black-Eyed Peas, Collard Greens and Whole Hog Barbecue (American Palate)" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Not about recipes but essays about food... M.F.K. Fisher's "Here Let Us Feast: A Book of Banquets" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) These two cookbooks have been posted before: Grace Young's "Stir-Frying to the Sky's Edge: The Ultimate Guide to Mastery, with Authentic Recipes and Stories" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. Slightly more expensive... "The Complete Milk Street TV Show Cookbook (2017-2019): Every Recipe from Every Episode of the Popular TV Show" Kindle Edition $3.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  5. I think this was from Bookbub... "Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers: Fresh Ideas for the Weeknight Table: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see the list of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  6. I stumbled across food videos by Tasty. They output a no-nonsense video, speed the video up to compress time (and get through the boring parts) and provide the entire recipe with a link in the description below the video. I usually look at the running time for a video and if it takes 20 minutes, I usually pass it by since I don't have a lot of time for viewing. The Tasty videos are brief in comparison and show the recipe/cooking process in very little time. Works for me. Here's a link to their YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJFp8uSYCjXOMnkUyb3CQ3Q

    Oreo Cookies

    Kim! I am so sorry they turned out to be so...fake tasting. You would think by now with all of the different limited editions of Oreos that they've put out that "fake" won't cut it. Plus, it lessens the brand's reputation in the long run so you think they would know better. But thanks for taking one for the team!
  8. Sorry for the double post but I found two more... The first cookbook below was posted a few years back. The second (by the same author) is a new find... Alice Medrich's "Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) B00DHUERGI Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see recipes. Uses Imperial measurements with weights for some ingredients. Alice Medrich's "Pure Dessert: True Flavors, Inspiring Ingredients, and Simple Recipes" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  9. Another Williams-Sonoma found this afternoon... "Pasta Night: Dinner Solutions for Every Day of the Week (Williams-Sonoma)" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature...you may have to scroll upward to see the list of recipes. Recipes look to be Imperial with some Metric measurements. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  10. Wait a second...I am counting more than six French fries in your servings there. Does @Shelby know about this? Thank you all for your ongoing cooking trials with your respective Air Fryers. It is immensely helpful to see what is working and what needs more adjustments.
  11. A rose by any other name... "Kimchi's new Chinese name has become the epicenter of a cultural war ... again"

    Oreo Cookies

    Yes. Walmart has had the Candy Corn/Marshmallow Pumpkins "Autumn Mix" on sale the past few weeks. The Halloween candy likely isn't far behind.

    Oreo Cookies

    "Oreo’s New Apple Cider Donut Cookies Just Hit Stores To Fast Forward Us To Fall" If anyone sees them in their store, please take one for the team, try them and please report back.
  14. You can also ask Presto themselves (click). My mom had a Presto pressure cooker she received as a wedding present over 60 years ago. She needed a new rubber seal and contacted Presto. She said she was amazed they had the seals in stock. It's worth asking...
  15. Hamburger and Hot Dog buns this time... "Voluntary Recall of Hostess® Hamburger Buns & Hot Dog Buns Due to Possible Health Risks" Batch numbers and dates are listed in the original linked-to article.
  16. Sold at Whole Foods, Meijer and Food Lion and other supermarkets... "Avanti Frozen Foods Expands Recall of Frozen Cooked Shrimp Because of Possible Health Risk" Sold under different brand names, the recall article has a long list of impacted products.
  17. From BookBub today... "That Cheese Plate Will Change Your Life: Creative Gatherings and Self-Care with the Cheese By Numbers Method" (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see some photos of the cheese/meat plates. There's a recipe index but it's not clear what a lot the recipes involve. Well Reviewed. There are some photos from the cookbook on this cookbook's Amazon Info page. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  18. It's a food safety issue. The maximum amount of time you should leave food out of the fridge is 2 hours. They say after 2 hours, the "bugs/bacteria" start contaminating the food. If you put warm food into the fridge, it takes longer for it to cool down to proper safe temperature as opposed to putting room temperature food into the fridge. Plus, putting warm food into the fridge warms up the interior of fridge (and the other foods in there) (like @Anna N said) which can also lead to food contamination. The high end of the safe temperature zone for refrigerating food is 40°F. Anything higher than that allows possible bacteria in your food to multiply.
  19. I drink Canada Dry Ginger Ale because it's one of the few sodas that doesn't have caramel color added (Google it). I drink the Diet version but I mix it with Pom pomegranate juice and it's freakin' delicious. It's also good with Dole's Strawberry Lemonade. I do about a 3-to-1 (diet soda to mixer) ratio so I'm not really drinking diet soda...kinda. The issue I have with most of the studies de-crying diet soda is they can't show causality. It's all statistics like they do with insurance studies (eg, "most red headed woman live 10 years longer than women with other hair color") but lack the cause/proof.
  20. More chicken, different brand... "Serenade Foods Recalls Frozen Raw Breaded Stuffed Chicken Products due to Possible Salmonella Enteritidis Contamination" Edited to add: Just saw on CNN's web site that these chicken products were sold at Aldi's.
  21. Found this afternoon: Slightly more expensive... From by Marc Vetri, Claire Kopp McWilliams, and David Joachim "Mastering Bread: The Art and Practice of Handmade Sourdough, Yeast Bread, and Pastry [A Baking Book]" Kindle Edition $3.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Well reviewed. Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll up to see the list of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  22. "Blount Fine Foods Corp. Recalls Chicken Soup Products Due To Possible Foreign Matter Contamination" Specific product(s) impacted are listed in the article.
  23. The pineapples we get in my local grocery stores are a sort of cross in colors that your pineapples are showing. Here they're greenish with a gold blush. The more golden they are, the more ripe they are. Your golden pineapple, if found in my grocery store, wouldn't be touched by shoppers because it'd be considered overripe. I was happy to hear it tasted good!
  24. This month's Amazon offerings has a lot of previously posted cookbooks...kind of disappointing. Two bargains found, one old (previously posted) and a new one: "Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Dinners" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see the recipe listing for the first chapter and some recipes. Not a cookbook...a commentary on the Food World and those populating it... Anthony Bourdain's "Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook (P.S.)" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  25. "Whole Foods Is Starting To Charge Prime Members With Grocery Delivery Fees"
