    Hospital food

    I hope you never were unfortunate enough to stay in hospital, but if you had to.. How was the food? In the hospital where I stayed 10 times, the food was awful. Most of it was dry boiled potatoes with unidentifiable meat and dead cooked veggies. When I had pulmonary embolisms they served me...

    Ever had to cook dinner in someone else's kitchen?

    Recently, I have been invited to several friends houses to cook them dinner. I have been "wowing" them with en papillote recipes I learned from CookingBites. However, I notice some differences in my cooking style when I am cooking in a foreign kitchen. Any funny stories? Like the time I had to...

    Are you in a dinner club?

    about 8 years ago we had some big earthquakes here destroying a lot of buildings. A group of us were having a drink and wondered how we could help the wee restaurant people. We decided to go,out to a small restaurant on the outskirts of town or in town where businesses were struggling. There's...

    Charging family and friends for Christmas dinner

    I have been reading on the BBC website about people charging family and friends for Christmas dinner. It appears to have sparked quite a debate. Hosting dinner can be very expensive so to a point I appreciate where the idea comes from but charging seems extreme. On December 27th my husband's...

    No More Leftovers - Build A Better TV Dinner

    What would you put in your "TV" Dinner? I hate leftovers! Sometimes I cook too much, and dislike eating the same meal a few days in a row, or having food sit in the fridge for a few days.. I've been toying with the idea of getting a set of divider plates that go from freezer to microwave, and...

    Fast dinner

    I am looking for recipes for a quick, easy and delicious dinner. Sometimes after work, I need to cook dinner quickly and I am looking for inspiration. You can write the recipe or cookbook you use. Mod note: please remember to post links to recipes here rather than actual recipes themselves.

    Could you cook Christmas dinner for £1($1.24)?

    Figures compiled for BBC News suggest the average cost of a typical dinner for six has risen by 14% since 2015. Spending £64.25 on one meal will be out of the reach of many but, whether you can afford it or not, what's the best way to get a good deal ahead of the big day? BBC News spoke to food...

    Mother's Day Dinner

    Does your family cook for you on Mother’s Day? My husband use to make barbecue ribs, chicken and hot dogs. My husband would cook so much that we had enough to freeze. We also had enough meat stored in the fridge that would last for days. That was a real Mother’s Day gift for me! :D:laugh::cool:

    How did your Easter Dinner turn out?

    I don’t normally make a big deal about cooking on Easter, but this year I decided to cook Ham, macaroni and cheese with string beans. My family enjoyed my ham, but I thought it was just ok. I normally purchase my ham at Sam’s Club, but this time I got it from my local grocery store. I found a...

    Do you like Manwich?

    Okay, so today I cooked up some Manwich for my hubby (as per his request), and joined him in eating one of these. After a couple of bites I could not stomach this any longer, it was too sweet and not quite flavorful at all. I felt like I was eating some amateur cooking. My husband really...

    Breakfast For Dinner

    Sometimes on a busy work night, breakfast for dinner is the perfect meal. Instead of meatloaf and mash potatoes, bacon, eggs and pancakes are just as satisfying and far less of a hassle. Does anyone here ever crave a hearty breakfast at times other than the morning? How often do you have...

    Do you cook turkey for Christmas dinner or a different bird?

    In our house the Christmas "bird" is a large turkey crown (we don't have a big enough oven to accommodate a whole bird and all the potatoes and veg etc. so we get a crown from the butcher around the corner and cook it on the top shelf). Are you a turkey family or do you cook a different bird...
