    Southern Fried Chicken

    loguy, You could contact the restaurant and ask how they made the fried chicken. They might share the recipe. Also the magazine Bon Appétit has a column called R.S.V.P. , where they obtain recipes from restaurants that readers request. So they might be able to find out the secret to the fried...

    A sandwich stand at a local college?

    Foodie Mama, If you like to bake why not offer to sell baked goods to local cafés or small restaurants that buy their baked treats rather than make them in-house. I am sure there are legal hurdles but why not do what you love.

    A sandwich stand at a local college?

    I would talk to the college first before worrying about anything else. Most, if not all, colleges have contracts with food service companies like Sodexo. These contracts give the food service company the exclusive right to sell food on campus. I am a college professor and all colleges I have...

    Wow, they both look yummy. The class must be paying off!! :)). I'd rather bake. Baking is more challenging, to me. So many things can go wrong, but when it works out, it feels so good. Plus I like baking better because I have a sweet tooth.

    Homemade Riccota

    I have a recipe for making ricotta that use milk and heavy cream as well as salt and vinegar. I don't have any heavy cream on hand, but I do have light cream. Do you think I could make a creamy, tasety ricotta using light cream? I know light cream has half as much fat as heavy cream, so I am...

    Potato Starch versa Rice Flour

    Is the potato starch being used as a thickener?  If so you could use rice flour.  But rice flour is a weak thickener compared to potato starch so I think you'd need more rice flour than the amount of potato starch called for in the recipe maybe up to three times as much.

    Apple Crisp

    I have heard of precooking pie filling but not precooking crisp filling. I thought the reason for precooking the pie filling was to evaporate moisture from the fruit so the bottom pie crust does not get soggy. But soggy crust would not be a problem with a crisp. If you pick a good cooking apple...

    Bread books

    Nick Malgieri's Bread may be what you are looking for. He has some explanation of ingredients and techniques but tries not to overwhelm since he says learning to bake bread should not be like studying for a biochemistry exam. I bought the book recently so I have only tried a few recipes but what...

    What is the best book on desserts/cakes/puddings there is?

    I agree that Bo Friberg's The Professional Pastry Chef is the best comprehensive dessert book. True the yields are daunting: I don't need to bake eighty cookies or six loaves of bread at once. But I find scaling down worth it since all the desserts I have tried have been scrumptious. I find...

    Does anyone REALLY wash veggies with soap? Or is it just my compulsive husband?

    I have to say, the thought of using soap never occurred to me.  I'd be worried about the food absorbing some of the soapy water.  So in an attempt to get rid of one harmful substance your husband is probably introducing another.  The best way to avoid pesticides is to buy organic, buy from local...
