  • The Recipe for Chick-fil-A's Sorely Missed Coleslaw

    06/15/2020 3:11:46 PM PDT · by be-baw · 120 replies ^ | June 13, 2020 | Meghan Overdeep
    It’s been four and a half years since Chick-fil-A made the difficult decision to pull its fan-favorite col slaw side from menus, and its tang still lingers in our hearts and mouths. "For a long time, we were really hesitant to take anything off the menu because we couldn't bring ourselves to disappoint anybody," David Farmer, senior vice president of menu development for Chick-fil-A told Business Insider in 2016. "But as our sales volumes grew, it just wasn't feasible to keep adding to the menu without taking anything away." *Wipes eyes* Recognizing the pain the coleslaw’s loyal fanbase was experiencing,...

    If you've ever wondered how to cook alligator but didn't know where to begin, this is for you. Florida-based YouTube stars Robert Arrington and his wife Sarah will teach you how to properly prepare, grill and fry an alligator tail. Instructions on how to actually kill the alligator aren't included but even if they were, um, don't try to get alligator meat that way. This is what stores are for. Please do not run out into the swamp and try to cut yourself off some alligator tail meat. You won't end up eating fried alligator. That alligator will eat you....

    After cooking more at home during supposed "Lock-downs", I've begun catching up on cataloging all the family recipes from several generations, including newspaper and package clippings from the 30s. Curious if others are all sensing a resurgence in home-cooking from scratch. Can't find an older Quiche Lorraine recipe. Maybe we can exchange recipes.

    CONSUMER REPORTS — Sales of air fryers are hot. People love the idea of crispy, fried food that’s supposed to be a bit healthier because very little oil is used. But what if you don’t have an air fryer? Consumer Reports say chances are you can still air-fry home without spending money or cluttering up your countertop with a new appliance. So what’s the deal with air fryers? These popular countertop cookers turn out chicken wings, french fries, shrimp, and other traditionally fried foods without using a lot of oil. You can spend $50 to $300 for one. The good...

    The Week ^ | 4/04/20 | Eric Kim
    Wherever you are in the world, I hope you're safe and sound at home. As we all navigate the global COVID-19 crisis, it's important that we're still nourishing ourselves - not just our stomachs, but also our minds, our hearts, and our communities. As my colleague Brinda's grandmother texted her today from Singapore, "Don't get depressed. Sing, play on the piano, read novels, learn knitting and sewing, meditate - all these help." I don't know if I believe that the simple comforts of cooking will indelibly cure the ailments of today and tomorrow, but I do know that walking into...

    I am semi-retired. Meaning that I still work part time. I don't have to, but I do mainly to stay involved with other people's lives and as a healthy distraction. My job as a caregiver for disabled adults means I make them dinner, dispense medications, listen to concerns, etc. Yesterday, there was a surprise on the menu; Tri-Tip Steak. Of course I'd heard of it, but I had never eaten any. At about $13.00 a pound, my family would never have been buying it years ago, even when adjusted for inflation. Most of the staff know that I like to...

    I posted recipes yesterday for chocolate pudding cake, which is by its nature eggless. One person freepmailed and told me that a young relative is highly allergice to eggs and she was very happy to have that recipes. So, I figured that a thread with many eggless recipes may be useful to people with egg allergies, or those cooking for people with such allergies. Observant Hindus also do not eat eggs, and then of course there are vegetarians who for various reasons may not eat eggs. So, in honor of the young relative who is highly allergic to eggs, here...

  • Austin firefighters respond to blazes caused by spontaneous combustion of tortilla chips

    07/25/2018 8:37:07 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 31 replies
    It happened July 12 at 6110 Trade Center Drive. AFD says the factory was trying out a new blend of chips that "didn't work out so well." That fire was contained to the exterior of the building, and ignited several other boxes of food waste. Then, three days later, additional boxes of the same tortilla chips spontaneously ignited again. Firefighters contained that fire and drowned all of the other boxes that had yet to catch fire.

    If you've ever tried (and failed) to cook the juiciest, best tasting pork chops, the first thing you need to do is give up any notions you might have about pork being "the other white meat," as it was marketed in the fat-phobic 1980s. "To me, a lean pork chop is the saddest possible thing," Samin Nosrat, cooking teacher and author of the James Beard Award-winning cookbook "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking," told TODAY Food. "The challenge of those tender cuts [like pork chops] is retaining that tenderness after you cook them," Nosrat explained. "In...

    It’s Monday. It’s December. I believe that calls for recipes. I saw a couple of teases in the comments over the weekend, such as 3XLady’s pictures of Potato Candy – candy? With potatoes? We need a recipe! And MichellenotTHATone was bragging about making white chocolate popcorn – White. Chocolate. Popcorn.!! Recipe please!For my part I want to harken back to our discussion on the November 21 ham and cheese sliders recipe post. Somebody commented that they are called “funeral sandwiches” in the South and I responded that in Utah the ubiquitous cheesy potato casserole was known as “funeral potatoes.” Behold,...

The smell of garlic and five-spice powder fills the air as she begins stir-frying glutinous rice that has been soaking in water since 3am.
