Son-In-Law Eggs
January 31, 2020 2:51 PM - RowerChick

"In Thai legend, a protective mother’s subtle devices led to the creation of son-in-law eggs, or kai look keuy. Upon learning that her daughter wasn’t being treated well by her son-in-law, the concerned parent fried up two hard-boiled eggs as a warning. The deep-fried pair sent a message: Get it together, or your “pair” will be next in line for the deep fryer."

I bought too much squash, of several varieties, from the frmrs mkt in late summer/early fall. Luckily found recipes for "tian", which I'd never heard of. Made 4 batches & froze in meal size portions. Sauteed onion on the bottom, 3 types of squash, potato, & tomsto; cheese toward end of bsking. Here are before & after pix of first batch.

poached eggs & hollandaise so easy that even stoops can do it
July 8, 2019 9:21 PM - ilovestoops
I'd tried to poach eggs directly in water a few times, using a few different techniques, and never could get them right. Found this the other day and it's amazing - even I can make it work:

Also, have only been able to do hollandaise successfully about half the time. This is amazing and traditional chefs won't believe it but even I made it work. Used a small heavy pot directly on the heat and stirred for over 10 minutes. Used combination of fresh lemon and lime juice and a little less butter. It was a little too thick but didn't bother thinning it. It can be kept in frige and warmed the next day.

Here's a pic of my poached egg and the hollandaise. I saw a Julia/Pepin video where she says english muffin too hard to cut so she cut a circle out of regular bread. I used a toasted brioche roll and it was great. Forgot to take pic sooner so messy plate. For the other egg, I used the "pod" method and cooked it a little too long, but this egg was perfectly runny.

English Muffin Bread

At Jeeves' request, I've been making this bread about every week or two. It is a very nice, dense, white bread and is great for morning toast. The only real similarity I find it has to English Muffins is the presence of corn meal on the outside. If you have a Kitchenaid mixer, it is easy and pretty foolproof. The only complication is that the dough is very sticky and therefore hard to divide into the two loaves which is what this recipe makes.

I've been altering the recipe only slightly. I slash the top to avoid having the crown get cracked and muffin-toppie and I bake it a few minutes longer than stated here.

Slow Cooker (Or Oven) Hasselback Apple Pork Loin
October 11, 2016 3:28 PM - dibs
This recipe looks delicious and I'm a big fan of pork tenderloin.

It's a recipe for a slow cooker (dh take note)but can be done in the oven easy enough.

In general, 1 hour of simmering on the range or baking at 350°F in the oven is equal to 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high in a slow cooker.

Cheese, please!

So, the plan is to make this sure-to-be-tasty ravioli with spinach and bacon (NOM!). But I think I'd also like some cheese in there. What cheese(s) do you think would blend nicely with this? (DO NOT SAY RICOTTA) Danke in advance.
