I love eggs sunny side up now. I used to think it was kinda gross. I don't eat bread, but I let the yolk run over the hash browns or whatever else is on my plate. And uncooked yolks contain a lot of nutrients.

I've also started eating sweet potatoes. Fries and baked sweet potatoes. Also a lot healthier for you.

You can completely screw up Pho.


Have $20 of BBQ sitting in the fridge now instead of devouring about, oh 1/3 of it for dinner. Lost appetite when trying to eat (thanks sick doggie)...attempted to eat a rib & dropped it in the floor. FAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!


Liquid dinner instead. Round 2 of margarita.

I have a lot of Vietnamese friends who's parents won't make pho at home cuz it takes too long and it's easier to just eat it out in public. So it already says a lot that your mom is willing to make it at home and keep on making it better/changing it up

Read this and try again:

5 Tips and Tricks to Make the Perfect Cheesecake

1. Pay attention to temperature: First, you must follow instructions and allow your cheesecake to chill. Many recipes call for a 6-hour overnight chill time and I know this seems excessive to many home bakers, but it really is necessary if you want a completely set cheesecake that will come out of the pan with ease. Second, cheesecakes absolutely taste best at room temperature, so after chilling let it stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.

2. Soften the cream cheese: Word to the wise: bring your cream cheese to room temperature before making a cheesecake. Much like using a springform pan, this is one of the non-negotiables if you want a smooth, lump-free cheesecake.

3. Don't stress over cracks: Many cheesecakes crack on the top. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever made one that didn't crack just a little. This has a lot to do with temperature and the rate at which your cheesecake heats up, but the good news is that it can be fixed. My instant (and tasty) trick is to spread a layer of sour cream over the cooled cheesecake. It will give it a clean finish and add a little extra creaminess to each bite.

4. Prebake your crust: Many recipes don't require you do this, but I guarantee you're going to have a crisper, lovelier crust if you do. With any kind of crumb crust (like graham cracker, for instance) you'll just want to give it a quick 10 minute bake in the oven before filling it with your cream cheese filling. No pie weights or fuss required.

5. Whip, whip whip: If you think about your idea of a great cheesecake, it's probably super, super creamy. To get that at home, your batter must be completely smooth, so be sure to beat your batter more than you think you need to.

I like my mom's bun rieu more than her pho, that's for sure.  LOL  Making pho isn't hard, it's just a long process.  LOL

Nowadays, the only thing I even eat at a buffet is salmon so I'm not sure if it's even worth it to go anymore.  LOL

I celebrated cinco late yesterday, not by any mexican style food, but made some margaritas. I went a little off the beaten path, as I had used all the ice in the house earlier to make iced tea, and was both too lazy to go to the store and buy some, and too impatient to wait for the 2 trays to refreeze. The tea had mostly since been consumed, so I just tossed all the margarita ingredients in with the tea and blended it. turned out a lot better than i feared it might. Quite tasty actually. Had to add some sugar, as I prefer my tea more bitter, but I'd certainly make em again. Caffeine and booze, yo!

Also, over the weekend, my gf made some miniature Dutch Baby Pancakes. (she took a picture, and i forgot to, so i stole this image from a google search).  She also made a blueberry syrup to pour into the pockets... so farkin gooood!

I think Baja Fresh has to be one of the best fast/quick food places. 

And the guacamole is good.  Not too salty like a lot of places.

- 2 grilled cheese sandwiches
- 2 deep fried mozzarella stuffed portobello mushrooms
- 2 beef burger patties 
- 2 additional slices of cheddar cheese
- lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, ketchup, mustard

It was super cheesy... I found myself wanting more meat taste though.  Would have been even better with a fried egg and some bacon and mayo.

I've got the organicville brand if that's what you're thinking of.. it basically tastes the same to me, but if you're familiar with agave, you can subtly tell it's sweetened with that instead of HFCS.  if you like ketchup on anything you eat and you don't want to ingest the garbage in standard processed "food" products, I'd say it's a perfect substitute.

I'm not a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies. I like them when they are just fresh out of the oven but kinda super picky about how they are made, like right in the middle of soft and moist, not too hard. But right now I'm eating Famous Amos Bite Size cookies chocolate chip and these aren't that bad for being in a snack bag type size

So, I moved and the new place does not have a gas stub out in the back for my grill.  Installing one is going to cost $1200 since my kitchen is on the second floor, which means my old Barbecues Galore Cook On Complete Kitchen with cast iron grates, cast iron burners and ceramic briquettes is being retired after 8 years as they do not carry the parts to convert from natural gas back to propane.  

I'm in the market for a new propane grill.  Everyone says Weber but I don't really want to spend more then $500, and if I'm going to spend that much, I'd like to get a 4 burner.  Any suggestions?

Weber does make a good, long-lasting product. You can pick up a 3-burner Weber for $500 at at home depot.
If you're not restricted solely to gas grills, while looking around I came across: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Char-Broil-Triple-Function-Gas-Charcoal-Grill-and-Smoker-463724512/203736363#.UYk8j8r5v3U

The reviews are good, albeit there aren't a lot of them, and the dual-purpose construction is pretty awesome (I looked at the Brinkmann version as well, but it has a painted steel grill, whereas the CharBroil has porcelain.) It's worth checking out. I'd like to get a smoker for myself at some point :)

EDIT:
Lookin at lowes, i found another multi-purpose grill:
Char-Griller Duo, $300. 465 reviews with 81% recommendation
as well as an all propane grill:
Huntington 3 burner, $300, 103 reviews and 95% recommendation rating.

Thanks.  I don't smoke often so that would be a waste.  And $500 is the minimum Weber, and I have to factor in the price of 2 propane tanks cause I don't want to run out when I grill turkeys.  I like the fact that they have a propane gas gauge, but I don't know how accurate those are.  

I found this Huntington at Lowes which is actually a rebranded canadian brand, Broil King, which got a great review at about.com and is only $370, leaving me enough for 2 tanks:

I love soft and moist cookies too even if it's not fresh from the oven.  I don't know how people can stand cookies that are not soft.  You take a bite and it crumbles all over you.  LOL   I miss the cookies they sold at the cafeteria in elementary, it was big and flat but oh so soft.  LOL

Thanks, lighning.  I was looking at some brinkmans cause of price but review online said they were made from cheap thin alluminum and did not provide even heating.  

Does it seem sturdy?  Does it light easy?  And do you ever use the side burner?

^ it's sturdy enough for my use. i've done steak, burgers, hot dogs, all the normal stuff. i haven't found heat distribution to be a problem except there's a bit less heat on the near edge closest to the cook. it all evens out after you flip your meat.
 
i used the side burner a couple times..so saute some onion, garlic, and mushroom.
 
if you grill all the time, i would pay a bit more for a weber because they're known to last a long time. i only use it a few times a year so it wasn't worth investing more.

I need to find a good grill.  Unfortunately the only kind of grill my apartments allows on the patio is an electric grill.  If I use a regular charcoal or propane grill, I have to drag it 10 feet away from the building.  So that means I would have to drag the grill through the apt every time I want to use it.  And I'm not going to do that. 

I've never grilled on an electric grill, but it sounds kind of crappy.  Might as well just use a cast iron skillet on the stove.

Btw, I love chocolate chip cookies.  I use to always get those giant ones at the mall.  Sadly my diet doesn't allow for any type of sweets.  :(

Had some leftover carne asada from cinco de mayo earlier.  Still good.

^^^ BBQ thread.. just saying :)  I went charcoal instead of propane when it came time to replace my grill... takes a little more time and effort but its totally worth it.. Everything tastes better cooked over charcoal

edit:  I'm going to look for some agave ketchup on the way home..

edit^2:  I'll definitely buy a Weber Genesis E-310(3 burner no side burner $700ish at Lowes) in a year or two when its more economical for me..  everything else seems to fall apart and rust out.. I will also be storing that bad boy in my garage.. it should last forever.
MOAR powderz plz!

Ah...was not aware there was a bbq thread.

anyway...

I LOVE charcoal but the convenience of gas can't be beat.  Especially natual gas hooked up to your house.
That's why I loved my old grill.  It had the ceramic briquettes that heat up and give a much more similar flavor to charcoal then these grills with metal "flavor wave bars".

Tis the season to eat out at those taco stands. Such nice weather to be hanging out side pigging out! If I'm not eating out at stands in this weather I'll probably be BBQ if the grocery stores open at midnight. LOL

Has anyone tried microwaving sweet potato in a plastic bag (with a splash of water)? Nuke it for 2 minutes and it'll come out steamed . YUM! Yeah, that's what I'm eating right now.

I found this Huntington at Lowes which is actually a rebranded canadian brand, Broil King, which got a great review at about.com and is only $370, leaving me enough for 2 tanks:


I'm gonna be a bit of a jackass here.. but ya did see that the bottom of my post had a link to that huntington, correct? lol

Totally looks like a good product though! If i had room, I'd get one for myself :)

Another edit:
An old friend of mine had a Brinkmann a few years ago. His did a great job of cooking whatever we put on it, and we grilled with it often. Perhaps their quality control just isn't top notch, and some out of the factory are better than their "identical" counterparts?
That said, with the solid reviews of the Huntington, I would likely opt for the Canadian product with solid reviews across the board.

Oh yeah, I saw the link. It was just to a different Huntington grill. That one I linked got better reviews then the other Huntington grills. I think I'm going to pick it up this weekend.
