    Cooking with Coconut Oil

    I can't find my source to link it, but last time I made clarified butter I poured the melted butter in a container with an inch or so of water in the bottom and then put it in the fridge. The solids sank and the clarified butter floated and hardened and was easily removed. You can either skim...

    Cooking with Coconut Oil

    Mostly I use peanut oil, which I blame on an early addiction to the Frugal Gourmet. The only other oil I keep all the time is olive oil, it has many uses. That's pretty much it aside from the occasional other oil that strikes my fancy. I had the same ideas about the unhealthiness of coconut...

    The brokeass eating thread! (No ramen allowed.)

    Speaking of cheap cuts of meat, pork loin is often the cheapest meat where I shop. I buy a big one then multi use it: Cut off a chunk to brine and roast. Cut off some chops to pan fry with a light coating (not too thick of a cut, they can be tough). Run the rest through my meat grinder with...

    You just convinced me to go buy some anchovies.

    I just discovered hummus

    I love hummus, my first thought on trying hummus was that it would make a great pizza sauce replacement. Sadly it did not, but I still love it, especially with some baba ghanoush.

    Do you eat the parts you aren't supposed to?

    A Japanese woman I once knew taught me this recipe for pickling eggs: Hard boil and peel the eggs. Mix equal parts of beer, vinegar and soy sauce in a pan, put in the eggs and bring to a boil. Let cool then store the eggs in the brine in the fridge. They'll be good in a couple days and...

    homemade mustard

    It happens that I have some dried cranberries, I guess I'll add them to my next mustard batch. This worcestershire sauce recipe really intrigues me. I don't use a lot of worcestershire sauce, but I might try making some anyway.

    Dips and Sauces....or even just plain dipping sauces!

    My current favorite is ranch dressing made from the mix, with buttermilk. Bottled ranch is so disappointing after having some made from the mix, i pretty much don't eat it unless it's the only choice.

    homemade mustard

    Anyone making their own mustard? I have been making some and I have been pretty happy with the results except that I haven't quite gotten the vinegar background tang that I want. As far as price goes, it probably doesn't cost me much more than a buck to make a cup of mustard. Here's what I...

    Homemade Bread

    I almost always use water for making bread, no milk at all. If it isn't rising it is something to do with the yeast. I've never used a bread machine, high temperature should make it rise faster, I get a slow rise when the temperature is low and then I let it rise to a certain volume no matter...

    Post Your Sexiest Pics Nekkid (2)

    You mean I could get away with claiming I had a mandolin when I only have a ukulele?

    Post Your Sexiest Pics Nekkid (2)

    It's really hard to post this without a paragraph of disclaimers, but here it is, my first and likely last contribution to the nekkid pics thread.

    The brokeass eating thread! (No ramen allowed.)

    When I need to eat super cheap I turn to cabbage and onions and eggs. Saute a chopped onion in some butter or oil until it's brown, add water and some chopped cabbage (extra flavorings here could be stock, wine, beer instead of some of the water). Once it's boiling and the cabbage is however...

    The thread for random single confessions!

    I confess that I dreamt that at the end of the last Harry Potter movie, Harry and Voldemort agreed to televised reality show contest, rather than fighting. The dream didn't say what sort of contest, but my secret hope is for one like Dancing With the Stars.

    PC Gamers

    FPS, mostly Killing Floor with some TF2 thrown in. Civ 5 for the strategy game needs, and I occasionally drop in on friends playing LotRO if I want an MMO.
