    Is there a right and a wrong way of cooking lamb here?

    Cooking lamb for my wife's bday. They had shoulder and leg in the supermarket and my mother in law said to get both. We both love to cook and obviously she has a lot more experience than me and her food is great just she is old fashioned. First thing I said was will the leg and shoulder not need...

    How good are/were your parents at cooking?

    How good were your parents at cooking? I got to thinking this when I saw caseydog 's remark on the American Goulash/Chili Mac "Even my mom couldn't mess it up.". Both my parents are still alive and these days (both in their 80s) pretty much subsist on convenience foods. Back in the day...

    Cooking with gas

    Other than the halogen oven, the air fryer and the rice cooker our fuel for cooking (hob and oven) is bottled gas (LGP propane). Last year for the first time I recorded the date that I changed the bottle (2nd June). That bottle ran out today. The current price for a 15 kg bottle is ฿400.00...

    Would you let your little one do a dangerous job when cooking?

    It may be time to cook,but would you let your little one do a dangerous job in the kitchen such as the job pictured below? There are many food prep & cooking jobs to do, some that kids would not even THINK about hesitating to do, but let's face it, sadly, they can get injured, burned or hurt...

    Do you have a planned night off from cooking?

    We all love cooking, but of course, even for the most cheerful of cooks, it can become a drudgery, night after night, week after week. When looking at the days and weeks ahead, do you purposely build into your plan a night off from cooking? Sometimes, it can take care of itself, like if you...

    What to do when you don’t feel like cooking?

    We have wonderful cooks here, and we all love being in the kitchen, but we all have days where we just can’t be bothered. Maybe work gets in the way, or family emergencies, or maybe you’re just too tired. For me, it’s usually work or personal errands, and some days, just scrambling an egg is...

    Favorite food/cooking aromas?

    Thinking of typical food and cooking aromas, I’m sure things like bacon frying, or a roast in the oven, or a simmering sauce, would place high on a lot of people’s list of favorites. I was struck by one I never would have considered. I made devil’s food cupcakes the other day, minus any...

    Have you ever had any happy and delicious cooking accidents?

    I had one today. I was making Mr. OH some smoked salmon bagels. I generally toast the bagel, slather on cream cheese, then add red onion, capers, and the smoked salmon on top. We like all the ingredients warm, so I put it back into the toaster oven for a few minutes. A couple of capers...

    Your most hated part of cooking

    What is it? Peeling spuds... shopping for ingredients...doing dishes after... getting timings right... etc... What post of the whole cooking process do you really not like? For me it's the dishing out once its all cooked. We have a small galley kitchen and it's a nightmare making room for the...

    Cooking Torch

    I got a butane cooking torch as one of my gifts. I've never used one before. I know we have a few members who like and use them quite a bit, so I thought I'd ask all the varied ways you all use yours. There are the obvious things, like crème brûlée and putting a char on a sous vide steak...

    Cooking Hearths

    I am given to wonder how many members do, or would, use a hearth for cooking, specifically, indoors, not outside. The most common hearth might be a fireplace hearth, but I rather like the concept of a floor pit hearth. If I had the where with all, I think I might endeavor to have a space...

    Cooking Myths

    All salts are equal. It just isn't true. Crystal size, for one, effects how much salt to use when cooking with salt. Flavor in salts can be very subtle in differences.
