    New Year cooking resolutions

    Do you have any cooking related New Year resolutions? Maybe a resolve to cook 'healthier' meals or perhaps to eat vegan or vegetarian food more often. Maybe you intend to be more experimental and cook some types of cuisine that you have never tried before?

    Old Cooking Utensils You still Use

    Wifie still uses an old Krupp Austrung Werks hand mixer. 20 to 1 open gear ratio, burled red oak and nickel handle and crank. You can still jump start a Buick with it. I love it. Do you still use any old kitchen tools?

    Using cooking skills to survive a black out

    I’ve been dealing with a power outage – downed power lines because of extremely high winds - for most of the day here. There were rumors that we would be without power for as long as three days. I was sure they were being overly pessimistic. But, just in case, I decided to go out and buy a...

    What Omnivores Get Wrong About Vegetarian Cooking

    Mind you, this isn't my observation. I am someone who sometimes accidentally makes a vegetarian dish (and even more accidentally, a vegan dish). But, this chef's observations really seem dead-on. I know that morning glory's son became a vegetarian (or was it a vegan?) and she's gotten quite...

    M&M Cooking bits.

    I thought i could melt them to spread on top of my granola bars. But, they won't melt. Does anyone know how so I don't waste them? Right now all I have is a big blog of hard chocolate in the measuring cup. I meant to say baking bits, not cooking bits.

    Edible Flowers - do you use them?

    Do you ever use edible flowers or flower petals in your dishes? A surprising number of flowers are edible - and as far as I'm aware, if you can eat the leaves you can also eat the flowers (safety warning: I've not checked this!). Some common examples are rosemary, lavender, sage, chives, rose...

    Recipe Chili dogs by CookingBites

    Detroit Coney Dogs in honor of CookingBites. In Detroit, you seemingly cannot travel more than 2 miles without seeing a Coney Island restaurant. So I had to pay tribute to these establishments with a classic Detroit Coney Island hot dog. Before we get into the debate of what a TRUE Coney Island...

    Were you taught cooking at school?

    I had 'home economics' classes from age 11-15 where we were taught cooking, nutrition and household budgeting. I didnt learn much that my mum had not taught me esp. as most of the recipes taught were traditional British - Cornish pasties, shepherds pie, Victoria sponge, etc. I branched out...

    What have you learned from this great cooking forum?

    I have only been a member on CookingBites for a relatively short time, but I have learned so much about cooking, ingredients, food photography, and international cuisines. Not to mention the amazing food discussions. What have you learned?

    Cooking with lavender

    I’m currently surrounded by lavender bushes, and keen to find a culinary use for them. I have come across a few recipes for sweet dishes that use lavender, but sweet dishes are really not my thing. I am struggling to find any savoury dishes (veg, meat or fish) that use lavender. I have a couple...

    Relaxing while cooking ...

    I burn incense sticks quite often, I find it relaxes me. I love the lavender and the musk ones the best. I got into burning these when I started going out with a chick about 45 years ago, who was a bit different. You'de call her bohemian nowadays. I guess she was ahead of her time. My kids...

    Simple cooking cheats

    A thread to share simple cooking cheats! I will start with one my wife suggested last week: Brush Marmite onto a chop or piece of meat before grilling or frying. I use Marmite quite a lot in sauces to give depth and a big umami hit, but I'd never considered using it directly on meat before...

    What Age are the CookingBites' Members?

    I was considering making a post today but wondered whether it would be appropriate, having little idea of the age groups into which the majority of members fit. Just to give an idea, would members be prepared to post their age group, anonymously of course, in this poll? As I shall post first...

    What is Your Worst Cooking Disaster?

    A friend recently told me that he's quite proud of something he made last night - wet burritos - and I told him that I know the feeling of making something that turns out so good that you are proud of what you did. Then, in my usual weird way of looking at things, I immediately thought of times...

    Cooking Meats 101?

    I must begin by apologising if I'm in the wrong place but I have a question about, what I would see to be, the basic fundamentals of cooking meats and with nowhere else to turn the first thing I did was go to Google, which in turn lead me here. Yesterday morning I returned home from work, to see...

    Cooking disasters

    A thread about when things go wrong in the kitchen, For starters, there was this vegetarian curry last week: It had a promising list of ingredients - parsnips, cauliflower, fresh ginger - a bit of a korma type curry. All went well until I decided it looked a bit bland and would probably...
