    At the animal feed store: Dog Question ????

    The animal feed store encourages us to bring the dog then all the contraband is on the lower shelves encouraging the dogs to shop lift. But my question is: Is it ok to let them chew on those dried pigs ears they sell? Wife absolutely is against it but hell, I’d give the dog a dirty martini...

    Lobster Bisque question:

    I was able to get legitimate Cold Water Lobster Claw meat from COSTCO and made a fantastic Lobster Bisque. Trouble was it did not smell appetizing. Really smelled fishy. Overly. Way outta line. Now I always heard "if you can smell seafood before you cook it then don't eat it." The Lobster was...

    Quick question

    Baked chicken breasts last night. Chicken was fresh, no odors. Baked it and it was cooked fine. But the meat was tough. Didn’t overcook it. Talking with a friend today and he recently had the same issue. Anybody else run into that.

    Whole Brisket question

    After the fun I had with trying a brisket in a slow cooker, I'm ready to try a whole brisket either in the oven or an electric roaster. But I might have a problem. The slow cooker brisket was cut in 2 pieces. A Point and a Flat. The Point was 4" thick and took about 10 hrs to cook. The Flat was...

    Garlic Question?

    When a recipe calls for garlic to be sauteed with onions, bell peppers, etc., do you add it when the other vegetables are added or do you wait until the other vegetables are softened? Personally, I wait until the other vegetables are soft, then add the garlic until fragrant, before proceeding...

    Roast Potatoes Question.

    No, not how to cook them but why are they not popular in the US? I have visited the US on more than 30 occasions but in all the restaurants I have been to I have yet to find them on any menu. Just wonder if it's the places I have been to or are they not really liked?

    question to expert cooks about buffalo wings

    ok, the best single thing I've ever eaten in my lifetime was the buffalo wings at a now defunct restaurant called Paradise Alley in Harrisburg PA. These wings were free and I've gone many years trying to find wings like this to no avail. Let me describe. They were dry, had no sauce. When you...

    Saffron Question

    My question is this, could I just crush up that whole bag and leave it in powder form to scoop out measurements of what I need? Or would that somehow ruin the flavor of the saffron overtime?

    Odd question about tea

    Been thinking about the various drinks that call themselves 'tea'. 'Tea' is not a process or a way of cooking it is a drink made from the tea plant just as coffee is a drink made from coffee beans. So why do we seem to call any drink involving hot water 'tea' ? If I ordered a van from a dealer...

    OK - you have been warned. This is one of those little daft things. A quirk of my husband's and I am not kidding. He likes his cutlery drawer arranged in a certain manner. We have to have a cutlery tray in the drawer and the teaspoons must be at the front. After that, it has to be, from left...
