re: Need gift ideas for someone who likes to cook - hungryone
+1 on the Spice House, or to Montreal's awesome Epices de Cru: http://spicetrekkers.com. Both offer some interesting boxes of various spices & blends, good for a cook who likes to try new things. Also, a paella kit from La Tienda: https://www.tienda.com/products/traditional-paella-kit-peregrino-...

re: WFDT - hungryone
Yesterday's leftover broiled chicken turned into a quesadilla w/cheese, sour cream, & tomatillo salsa, plus a salad of super sweet corn kernels, chopped tomato, avocado, cilantro, and a little ancho chili powder. Maybe a long walk around the 'hood for dessert....

re: Copper Pots - hungryone
To each his own, but the maintenance of copper makes it a non-starter in my book. I own a mix of enameled cast iron, All Clad, some stainless steel stock pots, and a few ceramic nonstick pans....

re: What's in jar Roux that makes it taste different? - hungryone
The powdered Tony's roux mix in the yellow shaker can isn't really equivalent to roux-in-a-jar. The powdered stuff is sort of a mix of instant-blend (aka Wondra) flour & coloring, whereas the roux-in-a-jar is browned flour & fat. Tony's powdered stuff is a handy item for quick thickening simple it...

re: Kitchen Bouquet - hungryone
Sure, it's for color more than flavor. But we eat with our eyes, and I keep a bottle on hand to "correct" the color of certain dishes. I've made gravies, gumbos, etc that tasted spot-on, but were a bit on the blond side. A few drops can make a beef gravy deeper & darker looking....and we know tha...

re: What is a University endowment really for? - hungryone
Sustaining serious research is not cheap.....departments like physics, molecular biology, etc generate some research funding, but things like electron microscopes don't come at a discount. Tuition, even at today's inflated rates, doesn't cover the operating costs of most institutions....

re: If you had to cook 3 meals a day, for 3 days, for ~50 people, what would you do? - hungryone
I must admit, I was kinda thinking the same thing. One or two meals for 50 is within the skills of a competent home cook, but 9 meals for 50 will require some special equipment and more refrigerated storage space than the average home kitchen can provide. So you're gonna need some large ice chests...

re: If you had to cook 3 meals a day, for 3 days, for ~50 people, what would you do? - hungryone
Since you're feeding the same ppl for 3 days, you need some variation in flavor, color, and texture. Breakfasts should include some fresh fruit and lighter options, and don't try to make yourself crazy by trying to do custom eggs. Entrees are easy.....good, interesting, well thought out veg/sides ...

re: Looking for new side dishes - hungryone
Oven roasted broccoli or cauliflower, or broccolini (EVOO, garlic, salt, pepper) In lieu of a cooked side dish, a winter slaw of chopped apples, bias-cut celery strips, shredded carrots, and a simple vinaigrette or yogurt based dressing. Crunchy, refreshing, a little tangy--a nice contrast to the ...

re: Best Buy - hungryone
I've purchased a fair number of apple products from BB; I can get the stuff I need immediately at a competitive price. Easier to visit/deal with than the Apple store. Also like the electronics trade in service; brought in a bag of old phones & devices, they gave me immediate credit. ...
