    Gents, you may think this is funny, but I assure you, this man's life is in danger for even joking about this. [Warning: May induce cardiac arrest in people who like to cook] AND NOW FOR THE REACTIONS: Even the people who knew he was trolling them felt deeply unsettled in their souls: Then there was the AKSHUALLY crowd: Feel free to chime in below! I'll be over here giving my cast iron skillet a good scrubbing with some steel wool to get all the black stuff off.

    Russia lost a dozen elite marines when they cooked food on an open fire and triggered an explosion from nearby live ammunition. Eight more were wounded in the incident that Vladimir Putin's regime has sought to cover-up. Reports say a RPG-7 grenade launcher shell caught fire and exploded at Kuzminsky military training ground in Rostov region, bordering Ukraine. Eight of the marines from 155th Separate Guards Marine Brigade, based in Vladivostok, were killed on the spot. Four more died in hospital, said the News 166 outlet in Rostov, which said the humiliating tragedy had been confirmed by three independent sources....

    When Danny Meyer was gearing up to open his barbecue restaurant, Blue Smoke, there was one recipe he knew he had to have on the menu: his grandmother’s secret potato salad recipe. “I told the chef, ‘My very favorite potato salad in the world was the one my grandmother made,’” Meyer recalls. That’s a big statement coming from Meyer, a successful restaurateur who has earned Michelin Stars and founded the fast-casual chain Shake Shack. At the time, his grandmother had already passed away, but Meyer remembered that she kept recipes on three by five index cards. After a search, he...
  • VIDEO: How I SUPERCHARGED the Flavor of My BBQ Achiote Chicken Thighs

    VIDEOAchiote chicken is already incredible. In fact, it is the ONLY BBQ chicken that I like. However, due to a tip from a viewer plus my desire to increase the garlic flavor of the chicken, I have been able to SUPERCHARGE the flavor. BTW, one final way to SUPERCHARGE the achiote chicken is to refrigerate it. I find the cooling process gels the chicken fat in such a way as to further heighten the flavor. It is not for everybody since most people would prefer warm chicken but I actually like it cold. You can find the recipe at a...

    NATIONAL GUMBO DAY | OCTOBER 12 On October 12th, the menu spotlights National Gumbo Day for food holidays. This heavily seasoned, stew-like dish fills us up on chilly fall days. #NationalGumboDay Originating in southern Louisiana during the 18th century, Gumbo typically consists of strongly-flavored stock with meat or shellfish, a thickener, and seasoned vegetables. The seasoned vegetables may include celery, bell peppers, and onions. In Cajun cuisine, the trio is known as the "holy trinity." Most people serve Gumbo over rice. Gumbo also falls into different categories based on the following types of thickener used: African vegetable okra Choctaw spice...

    I’ve spent two decades consulting extensively for consumer packaged goods companies. Early in my career I gathered some data for a client on cooking. This research found that consumers fell into one of three groups: (1) people who love to cook, and cook often, (2) people who hate to cook, and avoid that activity by heating up convenience food or outsourcing their meals (by ordering out or dining in restaurants), and, finally, (3) people who like to cook sometimes, and do a mix of cooking and outsourcing, depending on the situation. At the time, the sizes of the three respective...

    This is an ongoing thread – meaning come back to chat, post information, or ask questions any time. Hopefully the thread won’t stagnate and I’ll do better at posting weekly (or bi-weekly) topics than I have in the past. (anyone willing to post a topic now and then we'll be highly praised and appreciated). We are in for some bumpy rides, and prepping can only help. If for peace of mind, if nothing else. We have a wonderful gardening thread and a current-events survival/prepping thread, and hopefully this one can piggyback off of those, maybe having a longer discussion about...

    There is "no similarity" between Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and Donald Trump’s classified document scandal, according to Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart. Capehart addressed the comparison on Friday’s "PBS Newshour" in a panel with fellow Washington Post contributor Gary Abernathy discussing Trump’s ongoing legal issues. Host Geoff Bennett brought up the former secretary of state as both she and Trump have been accused of concealing classified information, but Capehart suggested that there was no "symmetry." "[I]f we have learned anything from the four years of Donald Trump's presidency and his campaign leading up to it and the campaign to try...
  • NY among 10 states set to sue EPA over standards for residential wood-burning stoves

    07/02/2023 3:32:19 PM PDT · by lowbridge · 47 replies ^ | July 2, 2023
    Attorneys general from 10 states, including New York, plan to sue the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, saying its failure to review and ensure emissions standards for residential wood-burning stoves has allowed the continued sale of appliances that could worsen pollution. That means programs that encourage people to trade in older stoves and other wood-burning appliances, such as forced-air furnaces, haven’t necessarily improved air quality, the states say. “If newer wood heaters do not meet cleaner standards, then programs to change out old wood heaters may provide little health benefits at significant public cost,” the states wrote Thursday in a 60-day...

    Summertime is made for relaxing in the beautiful weather, enjoying abundant produce at the farmers market, and — of course — spending time outside cooking on the grill. The combination of sizzling food, smoky aromas, and the social aspect of gathering around the grill creates an atmosphere that is hard to resist. Grilling pizza is an unconventional approach to cooking this well-known dish, but it offers a unique and flavorful twist to traditional versions. It cooks so much more quickly and results in a crisp and smoky crust that's simply irresistible. 359.1K These Are The Top 10 Canned Foods You...

    A new study claims to link vegetable oils to ovarian toxicity and suggests they have “estrogenic properties” A little while back we called vegetable oils “one of the worst foods you can consume“. That was before our article on the serious genetic dysregulation caused to lab rodents by soybean oil, and now another new study has shown that vegetable oils are seriously bad news. In this new study, researchers looked at GM and non-GM varieties of various vegetable oils and discovered that they demonstrated ovarian toxicity in every case, as well as “remarkable estrogenic properties.” None of that is good....

    Climate activists across Europe have pulled plenty of stunts over the past year, from throwing soup on a Van Gogh painting, to gluing themselves to various objects and roadways. In this embarrassing incident, British activists glued themselves to an oil tanker in Essex. The only problem? The tanker was carrying cooking oil, not crude oil. Big oil has been a primary target of protests like this one from the beginning, and the activism group Just Stop Oil is behind many of the aforementioned demonstrations. These protestors are part of a Just Stop Oil offshoot called Extinction Rebellion, which released a...
  • Four ways to reduce unwanted iodized table salt reactions when boiling pasta

    03/02/2023 10:33:04 AM PST · by ConservativeMind · 28 replies
    Iodized salt helps prevent iodine-deficiency disorders, including goiters and certain birth defects. Yet it's unclear how this seasoning interacts with chloramine-treated drinking water if some of the disinfectant is left behind. Now, researchers have demonstrated that cooking pasta in such water with iodized table salt could produce potentially harmful byproducts. But they also report four simple ways that people can reduce or avoid these unwanted compounds. In most countries, drinking water is treated with chlorine or chloramine. But small amounts of these disinfectants can end up in water used for cooking. Previous experiments showed that when wheat flour was heated...

  • Why gas stoves matter to the climate – and the gas industry: Keeping them means homes will use gas for heating too

    Yahoo! News ^ | January 18, 2023 | By Daniel Cohan
    Gas stoves are a leading source of hazardous indoor air pollution, but they emit only a tiny share of the greenhouse gases that warm the climate. Why, then, have they assumed such a heated role in climate politics? This skirmish may seem like a tempest in a teapot, but it reveals important contours of the battlefield on which climate politics are waged. As I explain in my book, “gas stoves matter to climate and to the gas industry because they serve as gateway appliances to the dominant residential uses of natural gas: heating and hot water. Installing more-efficient furnaces, better...

    I support a woman’s right to choose whether or not to cook on a gas stove. Too bad allegedly “pro-choice” Democrats disagree. Preventing women (and men) from using natural gas has become all the rage among today’s totalitarian Democrats. Consumer Product Safety Commissioner Richard Trumka, Jr. just proposed to ban gas stoves. New York Democratic Gov. Kathy “The Hack” Hochul wants to prohibit gas stoves, heaters and hookups to small buildings by 2025, with larger structures to follow. Leftist autocrats are killing pipelines and otherwise restricting gas in some 77 cities across America. President Joe Biden lept from this speeding...

    A sign of the media times is how quickly our leading progressive organs rally to deny that Democrats are doing what Democrats really are doing. A classic example was this week’s flare up in the coming climate war over banning gas stoves. A Biden appointee on the Consumer Product Safety Commission explicitly threatened to ban gas stoves based on dubious evidence of public-health harm. “This is a hidden hazard,” said commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. “Any option is on the table. Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.” We and others criticized the idea, and the media response was...

    The Biden administration is apparently looking to ban gas stoves, calling them a “hidden danger”. But while that sounds bad enough, a deeper dive shows – as usual – it’s not really about what they say it’s about. Talk of banning gas stoves and “unregulated indoor air quality” could be a Trojan horse designed to get even more “smart” monitoring technology into your home. Let’s jump in.

Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”According to the CPSC, gas stoves are dangerous...
