  • Just ordered a pound of pumpkin powder. Wouldn't have crossed my mind to do so even just 2 weeks ago. Let the fun begin!

    I buy pumpkin in cases of 6x3 kg cans. My dogs each get 100 grams a day in their meals. They love it!

    More cooking experiments and at least a couple repeats of my latest. It proved to be very popular - peeps be telling me I should open a bakery. An interesting thought.

    As in pumpkin powder in hot sauce? or in bakery?
    Cinnamon. Cacao. Things we often associate as sweet, though they are not sweet in and of themselves. Going to do some experimenting to see if some unexpected things work well sweet. Should be interesting!

    Yep and chocolate in con carne has long been a delicious mix. Also, don't forget jerk's heavy cinnamon usage.

    Throwdown. Just one. That's what's on my mind.

    only one tiny problem... I lost my $400 camera while shooting off a mid-powered rocket. Thus I would not be able to take any TD photos. le sigh..

    Love it when "mad scientist in the kitchen" mode takes over. Beautiful stuff happens!

    Hi Ann! Yeast bread. I'm experimenting with "what if?" As in "What if I made bread with coffee in it?" or "What if I substitute cake flour for part of the A/P?" or "What if I toast the sugar before adding it in?"

    So now I've made several loaves and have been force-feeding (ha!) them to folks I know, to ask their opinion of the flavor and/or texture. The loaf I gave to my falling coach? Gone in less than an hour!
    Some food is so unattractive you do still mind, even though it tastes good.

    Part 2 - The sauce was too liquidy at one point, so the excess was strained off. My son wanted to save it and use it for something else. Ok - I used it today as the cooking liquid for some pork shoulder in the slow cooker. Now it was his turn with the look - "what is THAT?" Had to remind him THAT was what he wanted. Ha!
    Very surprised - my son tried sprouting a blood orange seed - the single seed found in the ones I purchased. This has been well over a month ago. Today, found it sprouted!

    I recently read somewhere (might have been over the rainbow...) that soaking older seeds in a solution of water and potassium nitrate (aka: saltpeter) will help them sprout. Haven't tried it yet, but your mention of seeds never sprouting reminded me of it. Thinking I'll do a side-by-side soon.

    I am growing a blood orange tree. Takes forever to fruit. So far 4 years from seed. No fruits
    You will never be disappointed if you have no expectations. On the other hand, you will also be boring.

    Negative. I expect to rock! And I'll be dead before life becomes boring.

    I expect to learn how to triple jump by July 7. Ok, or maybe by August 19. Definitely by August 19!

    With the crazy surrounding me, I kind of hope for some boring now and then. Never get it, but always hoping.
    Got a jar of horseradish mustard. My son scooped a spoonful and popped it in his mouth. The stuff is mostly horseradish. Need I say more?

    So he liked it? I don't get the issue.

    Unexpectedly getting that much horseradish in the mouth can cause immediate redness in the face and a look like one just put a superhot into the mouth. Plus a look of utter shock. Frankly, I'm kind of surprised he didn't spit any out.

    Oh crap he ate the whole jar!
    Got my CCN order yesterday. Today I remembered what drama queens Tsakoniki eggplant plants can be. They will be fine, but geesh! So glad the chile plants aren't like that!

    Drama queens. Most of the ones I know are guys. The rest are plants.
    Pineapple cores - excellent flavor addition to what's in the slow cooker.

    I eat the core? Is that bad?

    Rawk I used the whole pineapple, core and all, on a poached salmon last night. It was outstanding!
    geeme
    geeme
    Eating the core isn't bad. It can be tough and fibrous, so most peeps don't eat uncooked core. And since not eaten raw, it's not familiar cooked, either.

    Me? I only rarely eat pineapple because it is too acidic - more than a few small pieces literally results in mild acid burn in my mouth - totally unpleasant.
    Car accidents suck, especially when you are the one who got rear-ended and hurt. Bah!

    Thanks, Ann. Things are progressing well - most of the large-area pain is gone now, though certain areas persist. I am hopeful that a week from now this will just be a memory. Onward and upward! ;)
    Anyone know of any customs issues with packing hot peppers into luggage to be taken to Germany?

    Yeah, I wasn't finding anything fairly quickly, so posted here. SL - dried.

    Germany huh. I once knew a guy that got thrown in the dunkel spitz for hazen spatening on the kuken mutz. Pretty serious..
    Blue corn masa and enough red chile powder do, in fact, make a nice shade of violet. Just be careful about whom you invite to dinner. Ha!

    So....who did you invite for dinner?
    If money was no object and you had one tequila to drink before you died, what would it be?
    Been ambivalent about using turmeric, but had a :shrug: moment and added it to something a short while ago. Now it's rockin' hard when I cook. Good stuff once you figure it out!
    geeme

    ... and go. Next week they'll say it causes cancer - whatever! But I'd hardly say it has no flavor - au contraire!

    I think it tastes great. My father swears by it for the arthritis in his hands as well.

    I started running and taking a turmeric/curcumin extract w/ piperine (black pepper) since it's supposed to help with inflammation... not sure it makes a huge difference but I ran a 10k this weekend (6.2 miles) and I'm feeling pretty good about it!
    Have broken my months-long hiatus from the culinary arts for tonight. The one burning question all must ask: Is it THE TB worthy? As Texans say, we're fixin' to find out!

    As you should. I don't flirt with dudes. A woman will make you a sandwich while telling you she's leaving you. A dude never does that! Making the sandwich...I mean.
