The Cooking, Drink and Food Forum
I just found this gem, which is new to me, and I think it's about time to start thinking about stuff with words again.
True to my thoughts, the only stuff I packed in my little shoulder bag (besides some sheet music, because I have brain damage...
Goddammit I am very upset I looked her name up on google.
There's like all these cheesecake photos and whatever.
(a) wth is people's problems
(b) i don't say leave her alone -- she clearly enjoys her appearance and whatever desire that may...
When I first got into the web, it was for stuff like food and music and stuff.
Like there is these whole things about that stuff.
Full of knowledgeable people and whatever, and just like IRL some handles got to be like ridiculous and lots of...
It's Pancake Day, more formally known as Shrove Tuesday, or even Jif Lemon Day in the UK because of clever advertising. Regardless, it's THE day for eating pancakes on and not just normal pancakes, but all varieties of pancake topping as well.
Due to various holiday-related circumstances, I found myself the designated recipient of a box of Russell Stover candy. For those unfamiliar with the name, Russell Stover is the most popular brand of drugstore chocolate sold in America. If a...
Prefer "cheesy, chickeny things."
Random food question.
Do you serve the bolognese on top of the spaghetti, or do you make a hole in the middle of the spaghetti for it?
I got 8 out of 10, frankly guessing on two.
Thank you, Food Network. I am wiser for my time with you.
This holy mecca of foods has been created.
Seriously, is there any way it could get any better?
Finally, a science report that I can fully endorse and I'll ignore any naysayers who might claim otherwise.
Science has shown that eating small but regular amounts of chocolate can keep you slim.
Yay for science :madsci:
And easter is just...
This is fascinating!
And when did ketchup become "flashy?"
As a vegetarian, I am jealous of all the tasty-looking stuff we don't get.
Check out this commercial:
Tell me if it's just me:
This ad makes the product seem sterile and characterless. The colors, even
the name, Platinum, feels nothing like something you'd want to ingest.
I compare this add to any Sam...
Heinz have dusted off one of their better ideas.
Being able to personalise a Can of Tomato Soup with a "Get Well Soon" Message and have it sent to someone ill.
Admittedtly, it costs £1.99 and takes 3 days to deliver, by which time the...
You didn't know we were having monthly cooking contests? Well. That's probably because I just decided we are. Also this month is actually more of a baking contest. Anyway.
December's cooking baking contest challenge is....
MAKE AN EDIBLE...
Its strange but when younger, on those occasions where I had to drink wine, it was invariably white, couldn't stand red, it just seemed to taste dry and wrong.
Nowadays, I seem to have almost grown into the taste of red wine and will enjoy it on...
This from today's Huffpost:
I'm finding or coming up with something new a couple of times a week, but I never have anybody to really inflict my discoveries on. To that end, I am inflicting them on all of you.
Of course, you're welcome to inflict right back.
You read that correctly, in America, pizza is classified as a vegetable because it has a smear of tomato paste across the top of it.
It counts as one of your five-a-day according to Congress who have turned down a challenge to the existing rule...
Man, when a buzz word catches on, it sticks.
With this post I officially whine about the food-marketing band wagon and my already being sick of anything "artisan."
Anyone got a good one? Bonus points if it's a crockpot recipe!
Thank you Thorntons, thank you.
A 4 metre square chocolate bar.
Now where is my invite?
A charity competition in Edinburgh to eat the hottest dish that a curry house could make has ended up with two of the contestants going to hospital as their bodies were not able to take the heat.
Ok, they ramped up the heat by using hottest...
How do you handle it? How would you prefer a polite guest respond if you offer them food that it turns out they dislike?
My niece and her boyfriend came over at dinner time tonight, uninvited. I'd made extra, as I'd intended on saving leftovers,...
If the POTUS says it's horrible, its horrible. It doesn't matter that Julia Gillard thinks its ok.
And the US Customs are trying to prevent the spread of this vile stuff. Only the convicts complained and Kevin Rudd was allowed to take it into the...
What a gloriously elegant idea.
You fill a small canning jar with pie crust and pie filling, then freeze it. Whenever you're feeling like just a bit of pie (or an adorable gift to give someone) you just take it out and bake!
I need to find...
Someone, just gave me a packet of Kendal Mint Cake and I had forgotten just how gorgeous this stuff tastes.
Is this a pecularly British food or are the equivalents abroad?
I really fancy an Apple and Blackberry flavour Ice Cream about now.
No idea why?
Anyone know where I can find one?
There is a large online campaign developing due to the change in recipe of one of Britain's favourites HP Sauce. The owners have changed the recipe slightly and reduced the salt content. Just a simple little change, but it appears to have had a...
Dominos are now considering how to build a franchise on the moon for when it becomes settled by pioneering astronauts.
Is it April already??
Don't believe me?
Here you go.
What on earth could you order, the Margharita with asteroids and...
Well what are they?
Mine's an Ulster Fry minus the meat.
Something like this, with a mug of tea.
Eggs either fried or scrambled.
That most cultured of Rock Bands AC/DC have released several types of own wine named after several of their songs in collabaration with a major Australian Wine producer.
Anyone for a glass of You Shook Me All Night Long muscat.
So, two guys at work are retiring. As a member of the local union, I took upon myself to get them retirement presents. After checking with their closer work mates, I confirmed that Scotch might be a good choice.
Today I bought one bottle of 10yo...
This is important, after all it's about coffee.
So, how do you drink it?
...but Bud Light Lime goes down REAAALLY nice on a very hot day.
Make no mistake, I'm as big a beer snob as anyone who ever brewed an all-malt ale with only noble hops and discussed the relative merits of obscure Belgian lambics. But I allow...
Wait for it...
Hard to remember a world without it.
Broccoli and garlic.
Wondering if anyone here has tried the new "60s Formula" Schlitz.
Drank nothing but the new (old) Schlitz yesterday, and it made me sad.
Sad because common American beer once had some real character, if this stuff
does, in fact,...
I collect cookbooks, great and terrible. The terrible ones are usually sociologically interesting, and sometimes when my middle-American-1960s roots get the better of me, I even secretly like some of the heavily processed, high-fat glop that passed...
Broth and bread.
... but really, really do.
Right now I am eating rice with a sauce I made. The main ingredients are butter, roast wattleseed powder*, and nutmeg. Tuna and corn are thrown in, too.
These flavours work brilliantly together. It should be more of...
A law has been introduced banning the sale any food product that contains added vitamins.
It was introduced in 2004 and Kelloggs had to remove several breakfast cereals and Vegemite was banned, but only now has the law been applied to Marmite.
You know, the thing you eat when you don't feel like making dinner, but want something that's not quite junk food?
Summer is coming and with it warm, weather, blue skies and the chance to eat outdoors on the lawn.
Would you stick with sandwiches and fruit squash. How about a few savoury dishes and maybe a bottle of lemonade. For the refined perhaps a...
Please pair some type of liquor with a food item.
Let's assume you can only consume those two items until
What combos would be nastiest?
We're having ham, au gratin potatoes, green bean casserole, and probably some kind of pie for dessert. Not sure if my husband's planning anything else at this point, sometimes he gets it in his head to try a new side, but that's our basic Easter...
I don't know why it is but brand name foods usually taste just that little bit better than the shop's own equivalent and so if I can, I always prefer to get the brand name products.
Kellogg's Cornflakes always taste better than the other brands,...
