I was interested in the OP's original question, but I see the conversation descended into trash talking without many answers.
So if you're still interested: On the Boar's Head website, they recommend using within three days after purchase. It has fewer preservatives than other brands that I've s...

This is adapted from the Cook's Illustrated quiche recipe. I use ham instead of bacon, reduce the milk to 1/2 cup instead of 1 cup and add fragrant herbs. The white pepper and nutmeg are perfect for seasoning.
8 ounces smoked ham or fried bacon (about 8 slices) cut into 1/2-inch pieces

Love the Amazing Ribs method. He doesn't recommend brining anymore, so I didn't last year, and was so glad not to have to deal with brining a turkey amidst all the other cooking. Just dry rub like he recommends ahead of time.
*Fresh herbs and oil under and on the skin. Oil is better for crispy ...

My elderly mom was recently put on a diet by her gastroenterologist which eliminated wheat gluten, lactose, and several groups of carbs. Since I go by her house every day to cook her food, it was a challenge for me, too.
For her main meal, she was quite happy with meat and veggies with either br...

Two months ago my mom's gastroenterologist put her on a diet which eliminated certain kinds of carbs, including wheat,lactose,fructose,and fructans. It immediately made her feel better, but I am exhausted from all the extra cooking. Everything except one kind of gluten-free cracker has to be cooked...

My mom isn't able to cook anymore, so I cook most of her food. This is one of her favorites:
2 whole bone-in chicken breasts with skin
fresh herbs: thyme, sage, parsley, bit of rosemary
canola oil (secret ingredient I learned about from Cook's illustrated)
2 green onions, chopped

After our second rice cooker in a year burned out, I was determined to figure out how to make perfect rice in a regular pot on the stove. My tips:
1. I use ratio of 1:1.5 rice to water. My measuring tool is a coffee cup that happens to measure one cup.
2. The pot I use is a 2 quart heavy sta...

I mix steel cut oats and water in 2 single serving oven-proof bowls/ramekins and put them in my slow cooker. The large, oval cookers are large enough for this. Then, I pour about an inch of water in the bottom of the crock and cook on low overnight. In essence you are creating a steam bath. I can ...

If you're going to go to the trouble of buying and smoking a whole turkey, try to elevate the game a little with something besides Italian dressing.

| Food and Drink Board|| re: Lend me your crock pot recipes! - BreadPudding on 12/1/12 at 10:46 am|
For chicken soup or stews, I have better luck using pre-cooked added in the last 30 - 60 minutes. Pre-cooked meaning the leftover roasted or smoked chicken from Sunday. Cooking raw chicken on low heat all day is not a great idea from a food safety standpoint from what I've read.

Easy Barbeque Stew:
Layer chopped onion, bell pepper, small, minced serrano pepper, and a bay leaf, then the pork chops* on top. If you have time, saute the veggies first, but if you are in a rush, just throw them in. Pour some low sodium beef stock over this so that the liquid isn't covering t...

No soap,ever! Use a plastic mesh scrubber or stiff brush and water to scrub.
When I finish cooking on cast iron, I put about an inch of water in it and let it boil while we eat. (I don't do much deep fat frying, but needless to say you would drain the oil out first). Then I pour out the exces...

I cook my regular steel cut oatmeal (not quick cook) in my large crock pot overnight on low heat. I use two small ovenproof bowls, probably about 2 cup sized, placed in about 1-2 inches of water. The water provides steam.

Lentils cook quickly and don't require any pre-soaking. First saute some onions, celery, and bell pepper with your favorite spices. Then add some baby carrots, one pound of lentils, and a box of vegetable or chicken broth. Add water to make around 6 cups of liquid. Bring to a boil, then simmer fo...
