    air deep fryers

    I just bought a Philips Avance turbo air fryer today and haven't tried making anything in it yet. We don't usually make fried food, so it's not like I'm trying to make less-fatty deep-fried onion rings or anything. I'm looking for interesting, efficient ways to get food on the table, and for new...

    Move Update

    Sorry for the lagtime, Nicko. We just got through Jewish New Year and the Day of Atonement. Being temple president, it's been a madhouse around here! The kitchen designer suggested the idea of raising the dishwasher because we asked her to take "aging in place" into consideration in her design...

    Hi Nicko! We asked our designer to keep in mind the principle of "aging in place", as we did when we renovated our master bathroom a few years ago. Not that we're that old (although I did get my Medicare card this summer), but we plan to stay here for a while. Raising the dishwasher is one...

    Helloooooo! I go away for a while, and you make the place look mahvelous! Maybe it was the batch of cookie dough I whipped up today in my KA mixer, but I thought a stop here was overdue. But not a day goes by that I don't think of what this place has added to the quality of my life. Life's been...

    Burger Throwdown - Let's Build a Better Burger

    I've heard of putting crushed ice or dissolved gelatin in the meat to moisten it. Any experience with that?  My grandmother's burgers were a version of what she ate in her Russian childhood called cutlets. Basically, chopped beef with moistened bread, chopped onion, salt, pepper, egg. Because...

    August 2015 Challenge - Eggplant

    I slice a slender purple eggplant into 1 cm thick slices, skin on. I make a vinaigrette with olive oil and whatever vinegar I feel like (balsamic or red wine vinegar usually). The other day I used a mixture of sherry vinegar and a dash or two of red wine vinegar. Then I add crushed garlic, dried...

    Ben's Chili Bowl, Washington, D.C.

    I was visiting my brothers recently and after a tour of Ford's Theater we jumped in a cab and went to the original U Street NW location of Ben's Chili Bowl in Washington, D.C. We're always looking for neighborhood places to eat in, to find good, local food to try. Of course we'd heard about...

    Review by 'mezzaluna' on item '9.5X12.5X1.5 clear maple block cutting board'

    I made this cutting board in an adult education class in the fall of my second year of teaching. I think the registration fee was $5. The teacher was a colleague. When I told him what my project was going to me, he told me I could make it from scrap wood he had. Therefore, there was no charge...
