    October Challenge: Savory Pumpkins and Winter Squash

    Stuffed Spaghetti Squash I halved a small spaghetti squash, seasoned it with salt and pepper and brushed the interior with olive oil. I then roasted it until very soft and scooped out the flesh except 1/4" around the perimeter. I mixed the flesh with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, parsley...

    Breaded chicken held for 36 hours - Safety concern?

    Thanks all. I'm going to bread them the morning of the event. Some of you are math challenged. 36 hours is a day and a half, not 3 days. (A day on Saturn is about 12 hours I think. But, it's all gas ya'know, so all bets are off.) Ug, the state of American education. :) Carry on.

    Breaded chicken held for 36 hours - Safety concern?

    I'm cooking for a large group. I'm planning to bread and hold chicken breasts in the refrigerator for 36 hours before baking (making chicken parm). Breading is typical flour, egg, breadcrumbs. I'm pretty sure this is fine, but mostly concerned about the egg, and I wanted to check before I...

    June 2019 Cooking Challenge: Indian food

    I've not had much time to cook this month but I did make one recipe. Kadai Paneer I started by making paneer the day before. I brought whole milk to a bare simmer stirring often and scraping the bottom of the pot. I'm always amused that something so ugly turns into something great. I...

    Hugely busy month putting to together an out of state move and house hunting but we did eat occasionally and had a few salads I managed to photograph. We made Chinese chicken salad a couple times. For the crunchy component I use pan toasted slivered almonds and diced water chestnuts. Great...

    Tips you wish you'd known when you first started cooking

    How useful water is. If you are sautéing something, such as onion, and it starts to burn a little before its done, just add a little water and let if cook off.

    Rosemary Broccoli

    So I just sautéed some leftover broccoli in rosemary olive oil with a little salt and pepper and it was excellent. So I'm thinking surely everyone already knows this, and I pulled out the Flavor Bible and it's not listed as a combo. So I guess I discovered something kind of new. Obviously I...

    What are making for Easter?

    @drirene - this is Mrs. Hank. Thanks for the post! I am making Italian Easter bread too, and I haven't seen it before, since you get something very different when you google "Easter bread". A recipe from my great-aunt. Like yours, basically bread stuffed with cheeses and Italian sausage...
