I've got 20lbs of chicken leg quarters that I can't freeze. Recommend recipes on how to roast them please.
What is that ingredient?
Any good places to eat at in Kentucky
I'm paid to install cameras in the bathrooms of Yum! brand restaurants. Ask me anything.
Hey guys, so I'm looking to buy a rice cooker. I'm not really up to date on what brands are good and what's crap, but after poking around a bit I've seen Zojirushi being brought up a bit. They seem top of the line though, and I'm not sure if I'm ready to drop $150+ on a rice cooker. Are there any other brands/models you guys would recommend? I had something along the lines of a $60-80 stainless steel cooker in mind.
How often would you use it? Do you want to use it for brown rice too?
Rice is one of the easiest things to make so I don't think it's worth getting an expensive piece of equipment that will take up a bunch of counter space unless you use it almost every day and alternate between several different grains.
>How often would you use it?
Probably several times a week. I'm pretty big on rice.
>Do you want to use it for brown rice too?
I primarily eat brown rice at home. I don't really alternate between several different grains. I see what you're saying though, and really the only reason I'm considering these is because brown rice can be kind of a pain to make just by boiling it in a pot and I don't want to have...

Is there a website that will let me choose a weekly budget and plan atleast dinner meals for each night of that week including the grocery list and recipie, etc.?
Im a decent cook, untrained but between me and my s/o im the far better of the two. we're going to be moving out and in together in the coming months and Id like to not have to make a conscious effort towards meal planning and trying to budget with minimal information on the price of groceries.
It's not easy I can tell you. If you are really set on the idea I'd recommend just buying various raw ingredients within your budget then just basing meals on those on the fly.
You will not be eating your fave comfort meals every night but I've been doing this and it is a superb way to hone your culinary knowledge/creativity. It's also freeing because you dont need to buy from a list
Completely new to this, what makes a good salad? How do I tell what vegetables and dressing to combine? any good dressing recipes?
>what makes a good salad?
Vegetables, sometimes fruit, meats and cheese as well.
>How do I tell what vegetables and dressing to combine?
Most combinations will work fairly well, just experiment and find out what you like.
>any good dressing recipes?
I usually just make vinaigrettes with oil, vinegar, sometimes some honey, sometimes mustard, salt pepper, sometimes minced garlic or chopped fresh herbs. You can use different oils, vinegars, mustards, herbs etc. to get different flavor combinations. Again, experiment and see what you prefer. Or just use google.
Salad should be simple. Start off with a few tasty greens for example arugula-spinach-chard. Dress it (EV olive and balsamic vinegar never goes wrong) and serve with a chicken breast or whatever you like. Again, simplicity is all, too much and you won't appreciate the greens at all.
Once your comfortable in what you like add other things you like: root vegetables, nuts, cheeses, etc. Don't fall for the Caesar salad conception of things, you don't need piles of dressing, croutons and shit, and lettuce is to salad as thin sliced white is to bread.
buy a salad spinner if you haven't already
my salad consumption went right up after i bought a salad spinner
my fave dressing is simple: apple cider vinegar, olive oil (or whatever i have), white miso, whole grain mustard, and just a hint of honey
spend a few $$ on NICE cheese (not the shit from the milk aisle) blue is nice, or feta.. they're all good
nuts are also nice.. pine nuts, pecans, walnuts, coconut
fennel is great .. it taste like licorice/celery
boiled egg - buy one of those cheap wire egg slicer...

any one here grind their own meat
i'm looking for adivce on a grinder.. i'm thinking manual because i would only be doing small ammounts for 2-4 people kind of thing.. but i'm not against electric either.. cost isn't a huge factor
are the ones that are attachments for mixers any good?
any other feedback?
The hand grinders work okay, but I'm looking forward to getting the grinder attachment for my wife's kitchenaid mixer. If you get a hand one, get a higher quality one. I have a universal No. 2 grinder and while it works it definitely leaves a LOT to be desired. I've used it to grind bone in chicken quarters for a raw dog food diet though, no complaints on durability.
I'm an american on the east coast working from home because of the snow and browsing /ck/ and my other favourite boards.
Why is the quality of the posts so great and level of shitposting so low? When I get home from work it starts off okay then deteriorates into absolute garbage. Is it always like this from morning to afternoon? I might have to start working third shift.
Do you smoke often?
What kind of food do you like that goes really well with a cigarette afterwards?
For me its fried chicken or anything greasy for that matter.
I like red wines and spicy food to go with my Dunhills
1-3 cigs a day, sometimes none at all if I'm having particularly good day.
No food pairs well with cigarette, except maybe if it's something so vile you want to destroy the aftertaste in your mouth fast.
So I literally always do the exact same recipe
>Kevin and Amanda's Perfect Pulled Pork
Its easily googleable, but its basically just a dry rub. It always turns out pretty good but I would like to try some thing a little different. Anyone have any suggestions for different kinds of dry or wet rubs I could try?
Equal parts chili powder (as in powdered chilis), cumin, oregano, black pepper plus a little salt
rub into pork
quarter a couple of onions, peel 4-5 cloves garlic, place in slow cooker
put pork on top
squeeze juice of 2 oranges, 2 limes over that
cook on low 8 hours
remove pork, shred
skim fat from liquid, put pork back in slow cooker for 30 mins
retrieve pork, put on baking sheet and place under grill for a couple of minutes
Does anyone have a good recipe for Japanese style curry? I've made instant curry from those big rectangles before but they don't have the same kind of taste as the curry I've had in Japanese restaurants. They were always really spicy and had a lighter color compared to the kind I had in restaurants.
I live in a rural ass area though so I don't really have any kind of asian stores.
Breakfast time! What's on the menu today?
What are some good websites for recipes?
>inb4 allrecipes or some other mumsnet-tier place
Any food recommendations for SE Asia? Particularly from Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia?
I am going to eat touristy shit -like scorpions and spiders- just cause you kinda have to; but I'm looking to try sample some of the local cuisine from restaurants and street stalls alike (they seem cleaner than PooInLoo's).
Also, should I keep my eye out for ingredients or spices that can be flown home? What about appliances/utensils? Preferably small and light (I'm looking at getting a vietnamese coffee maker, cause I collect them)
