re: Dave Ramsey's advice to pay off a car loan, rather than invest - BlackenedOut
You also are assuming that in every case the lowest balance also does not have the highest interest rate. No dog in this hunt but it could very well be possible that someone’s lowest balance has a High interest rate. Especially if they have maybe exhausted normal credit lines and are using pay d...

re: Barcelona to Paris - BlackenedOut
For that I would say plane, unless you have places you want to stop along the way. But if you need to get from Barcelona to Paris in a hurry, its a plane all day. Its about 12 hours by train. ...

re: Best Burger in NO? - BlackenedOut
Its a different burger set up but a lot of the bones are the same. One at Justine comes with a ramekin of au poivre sauce and is fantastic for the burger or to run your fries through. ...

re: Recent Paris Travelers: your favorite restaurants - BlackenedOut
Loved Chez Michel up near Montmartre. Style of cooking is more Normandy than Parisian cooking but just a lovely place. Also you might like a book called Bistronomy which chronicles all those newer places. One of the Clown Bar chefs just opened his own place. @parisismykitchen is a good follo...

re: Europe Trip Amsterdam-> London > Paris -> HOME - BlackenedOut
In Paris really like the Marais. Going in May and debating between that and a few areas on the Left Bank. For London, really like Covent Garden. It’s just so central to most of what you might like to see. British Portrait Gallery, Tate, Big Ben, Westminster, Downing St, Buckingham, etc... all of...

re: Europe Trip Amsterdam-> London > Paris -> HOME - BlackenedOut
To echo another poster, re think your path. Amsterdam to London and back to the continent is a bit of back tracking. Try and go Amsterdam to Paris and then to London. Or London to Paris to Amsterdam. July 4th in Paris or anywhere in Europe will pass with little fanfare but if you were in France ...

re: Soup Recipe to Pair with Citrus Rubbed Ruck - BlackenedOut
Whole duck or duck breasts? Since duck is so rich, I’d be inclined to go with something lighter or more vegetable focused. Try your hand at making a consomme? Also there is a really good recipe by Paul Bertoli for a cauliflower purée that uses no cream or anything heavy and results in a d...

re: Need advice on drink dispenser drink for Xmas - BlackenedOut
Pineapple vodka needs no mixer. The sugar and acidity makes a cocktail of sorts. Just serve cold. It’s delicious. What time is your party? If morningish, brandy or bourbon milk punch is an easy drink to batch and serve that way. Greyhounds also. If later you could batch Sazeracs, Old Fash...

re: New Orleans Cookbooks - BlackenedOut
I have a copy of Great Chefs: Louisiana New Garde. I love it for a lot of reasons but mainly seeing all these now elder statesmen/women of the Culinary scene as young Turks doing wild things like pairing corn macaque choux with shrimp remoulade. ...

re: New Orleans Cookbooks - BlackenedOut
Very good book. Way more in line with an older style cookbook that teaches techniques and the whys and less a chef cookbook that uses recipes to tell a story about some life moment. Reminds me of a Jacques Pepin style book....
