what does /ck/ usually get for chinese takeout?
How do y'all feel about induction stove tops?
I just moved out of a place that had an induction stove. They heat the pan very quickly - id say they offer as much heat control as a gas stove top. However, buying pans is a real chore. A lot of them dont work.

What's /ck/'s fav flavour?
So my friend is moving and we're going to have a BBQ as a house warming. However, his GF is vegetarian. I always cook at these things, but I've never done a vegetarian BBQ.
I was thinking of making an eggplant parma, first by grilling the eggplant on my weber, then crumbing it an frying it and finish it off with the cheese and marinara sauce.
Does that sound good? I don't cook with eggplant much.
What else can I make for a vegetarian at a BBQ?
Roasted vegetables are really good. All you do is cut them up, season with salt, pepper and a little oil/butter, and seal them in a foil packet. I usually do squash and mushrooms, but you can try anything really.
Grilled portobello mushrooms are also good.

They taste the same and both taste shit. If I were to drink an energy drink it would be Relentless or something with that similar sugary tang to it. Can't stand the artificial bubblegum-like flavour of Red Bull or Monster.
Rockstar is alright yeah. That same base flavour that I like. Can't quite put my finger on what separates the flavours but there are definitely two distinct camps. I don't drink much of the stuff these days.
Starting with HK Milk tea
Who else feels like we got fucked over yet again?
>When you go grocery shopping, you can often save money by buying cheaper, generic alternatives to popular name-brand foods. One name-brand manufacturer, the cookie company Pepperidge Farm, thinks that Trader Joe's has taken this practice too far. It's suing the grocery chain for selling "crispy cookies filled with Belgian chocolate," which Pepperidge Farm claims is too similar to its own Milano cookies.

I hate it when companies try to wipe out their competition by bogus patents instead of competing on the merits of their products.
From now on, I guess that Pepperidge Farm products are now on my "No Buy" list.
Aside from vodka, pickles, and borschdt. What are some Russian dishes worth trying? I rarely see anything regarding their food. Bonus points if it's something I can easily cook.
I don't know many but my favorites that my grandma made are Shishliki and Piroshki:
Shishliki sounds simple but is amazing cooked over a fire or BBQ. Don't bother if you don't have a BBQ since the char is an essential part of the overall flavor.
Piroshki have fillings as pierogies do but they use a different dough that is baked instead of boiled/fried. They can be filled with pretty much any kind of mashed vegetable. Serve with melted butter and smetana/sour cream.
We usually made a whole bunch at once in different flavours:
Cottage Cheese (sweet or savory)
Potato & onion
Baked bean (I never liked these ones really)
There is also a peasant-style soup that she used to make called Zatirka or something similar. Basically it was a potato, onion and dumpling soup seasoned with salt and heavily with black pepper.
Start by making the "dumplings" - make a simple egg and flour dough seasoned with salt and pepper and pinch off small pieces onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350F or so just until they are starting to brown. Boil diced/chunked potatoes in a big pot of water. When soft, remove the potatoes; save the water as it will be used for broth. In a seperate pot, cook diced onion in butter until clear. Add about 1/3 to 1/2 of the diced potatoes and mash them lightly. Add the potato water, the remaining diced potato, and the dumpings. Cook for a little bit and season with more salt and pepper to taste. The final soup should be quite thick so you may want to add the broth last and just enough to cover the ingredients.

Any Russian table will also have a multitude of salads and breads. My favorite is шaкapaп
What are some simple things I can do with a brick of cream cheese other than spreading it on bagels? I've got like half a brick of Philadelphia and no bread to put it on and I'm bored. Any suggestions?
No. That's gross. Do people seriously do that?
What's your white powder of choice for baking pies? Is tapioca powder worth the extra money vs cornstarch vs ap flour? My fillings taste good but I cant slice the with fillings like berries that have a lot of juice without the filling leaking out the crust.
I don't par bake the crust unless the recipe says so. I've seen recipes for the same types of pie some being baking in a par baked crust others in a raw one. I need some pie knowledge ck.
i need some creative and original beer names stat
Will my senile father's collection of old styrofoam McDonald's packaging be worth anything some day, /ck/?
as dumb as it sounds it just might. There's a market for everything and with the rise in technological singularity there will also be a niche for everyone so one day you just might stumble upon a classical fast food packaging collector's webpage and you will be well equipped to reap the rewards. If not in your lifetime than at least your childs.

Good or bad, /ck/?
