I guess are in order. Hello, my name's Elisha! Other than writing, I've been taking up cooking to pass the time during this pandemic. I like to bake but my skills are probably more Nailed It! material than The Great British Bake Off - here's a cake I made to prove it. Anyway, nice to meet you!

RE: Recipe Help on Apples

Didn't expect an overwhelming number of response to my inquiry when I logged in! Thank you so much guys ❤️ These apples are gonna rock!

RECIPE HELP! Our neighbor just gave us a ton of green and yellow apples. Besides apple chips, what else can we do with them? I don't want them to spoil and throw it out :(

Oohhh not bad - didn't put any sugar on it but they turned out sweet anyway!

Excellent post on the medieval conception of debt, why debt is immoral, and also imaginary.

What do you use to manage your recipes? I used pepperplate for a long time until they killed their free tier a couple of months ago, then I switched to recipesage.com, which has been fine so far. The 'import recipe from URL' feature works pretty well.

Speaking of recipe URLs, shout to @cuttlefish for turning me onto the 'Recipe Filter' plugin for FireFox: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

When you hit a recipe blog page, it attempts to isolate the actual recipe and pop it right into a modal div so you don't have to scroll past 10,000 words of blather; it is life-changing!

Hi all, I'm Max.

I'm a home cook who likes fancy techniques.

I guess the thing I made most recently is this rhubarb syrup.

And so, I finally realized what I had been doing wrong with my instant pot -

"Food Burn" happens when I switch from saute to pressure cook instantly. To prevent that, I turned it off for awhile after sauteing, let everything just chill for a bit in there (5 minutes should be enough), before putting on the lid and setting it to pressure cook. Solved!

Well, it's Noah! I'm a small account, and if you know me at all, it's for two things: pictures of Clark and food threads that border, perhaps, on the overlong.

I work with almost any kind of food—Puerto Rican/Cuban, Tex-Mex, Korean, Indian, and vaguely Southeast Asian—but I'm usually at my best when making big batch stuff like casseroles, roasts, rice and beans, etc. I like to experiment with weird mixes of flavors, spice mixes, etc.

Lately, I've been getting into making ice cream, syrups, and other kinds of non-bake sweets, since I'm still not great with the slower fire.

Day 20 of - I no longer own physical copies of songs, but this CD is something special! Also, I really wish I can watch MNL 143 again. write.as/eleeshing/a-soundtrac

It's Louisa! I've been around the fediverse for a couple of years now, if you know me you know I love to cook and eat and talk about food

My parents are English but I grew up in the northeastern US, so my strengths are in those regions' foods, but I love to experiment and try new things

Here's some things I've made

- garlic powder

- lil bit of cumin
