Please do NOT hold the mayo!
I love jerky because it’s a great source of protein when you’re on those long hiking or camping trips and just need a quick pick-me-up. It’s pretty tasty too, and light enough that you can easily stash away dozens of jerky packs in your bag without weighing yourself down.
There are many recipes, especially the breakfast ones, that would look good with a poached egg on top. While the aspect and taste would gain 100 points, the technique can give you some headaches. How can you obtain that silky egg white and gooey yolks without too much effort?
Are you a “pizzaholic” who loves a homemade, perfectly-baked pizza? Then it is time to go to the next level and start preparing it yourself. Apart from best quality ingredients, you will also need a pizza stone which will help you obtain the crunchy crust you absolutely love. It is not enough to just buy it if you do not know how to use it properly.
I’m not always a perfect cook. I don’t think most of us are, but I know for a fact that I’ve burned more than my fair share of dishes. While the wasted food always makes me feel bad, I used to dread cleaning up even more. I absolutely hated scrubbing fruitlessly at the pot or pan in which I had just ruined a dish.
Acid is a pretty important topic that we very rarely talk about. As much as I like to add a little bit of lemon juice to everything, it doesn’t always go over well. While my dishes taste wonderful, my guests who are prone to acid reflux would very much prefer that I increase the pH of my cooking.
I”m a big lover of all foods fried. Whether we’re talking donuts, chicken, or tempura, I’m always down to partake of food that’s fresh from the frier. When it comes to leftovers, however, I’m much less interested. After even just a few minutes, fried food can lose its crunch and become a disgusting, soggy mess.
Backyard barbecues are a very special event. There’s something magical about getting together with friends and family and enjoying some delicious grilled food that’s prepared right in front of you. One of my favorite dishes is a well-made burger, with a delicious homemade patty and plenty of toppings and condiments.
I was shocked to discover that one of my friends thought she couldn’t make muffins without a muffin tray. While these special baking pans make creating muffins a whole lot easier, they’re not integral to your enjoyment of a small, round breakfast cakes.
Discovering Sous Vide
As a child, I used to dislike octopus. It tasted fine, of course, but the way it felt in my mouth was always too chewy. It was like eating an eraser. A cooked eraser, mind you, and one that was breaded and fried and dipped in some sort of sauce, but an eraser nonetheless. Not my favorite.
Frozen or Fresh Ravioli – Which is the Better Pick?
As much as you can purchase pre-made or frozen ravioli straight from the grocery store, making one from scratch is considered more fulfilling and therapeutic. Personally, I prefer making my own ravioli in the comfort of my kitchen.
