The Rick Bayless recipe is just about the proportions

I use. I may use a little more shortening because I don't use lard. You don't knead the dough at all. Just mix the flour salt and shortening together very well. Like a pie crust but you want the...

I use shortening not oil and they come out floppy. When I

first started making them they turned out crispy also, then I cut the amount of shortening the recipe called for in half and they come out perfectly every time. I cook them over fairly high heat,...

If you don't want to try piercing the eggs then

just stir them as the water is coming to a boil. After a minute or two of boiling then you can stop stirring. I learned this from a chinese cooking show and it works. Nicely centered yolks every...

I wonder if it would help if you supremed the limes.

I always remove the membranes when I eat a grapefruit and there is no bitterness at all. Grapefruit is also very bitter and maybe there is more bitterness in the membranes of the limes than there is...

I only have 1 light, for when the burner is on but it

stays lit until the cooktop cools off. It should say in your owners manual how yours works. As far as I know all the stoves like this have some sort of light that indicates the cooktop is still hot.

You should check out some of the vegetarian cuisines

from around the world. Indian food uses many many spices but you certainly don't need to add hot peppers. Many Thai dishes use hot curry paste but again you can control the amount of heat by either...

If you use olive oil spray instead of a glob of butter the

flavor will never even come close. They may also use a yellow and butter flavored shortening product that contains salt. I am sure they seasoned their eggs with salt even if they did not use black...

I don't have a recipe, I just make my flour tortillas by feel,

but I would imagine that if she made them the "old school" way then they
contained lard. It contributes to the texture as well as flavor.

I actually found him to be funny, scripted or not. Very

naturel in front of the camera also. I didn't care for his bacon show but I will watch him again. I also imagine that I will get a recipe or two from him.

You should follow the directions of the container of

powdered milk. Only from there will you get the correct way to mix.

As far as the sticking problem, I am guessing that the

pan is not hot enough. A cast iron pan takes much longer than a stainless steel pan to heat up. If the pan is well seasoned and hot enough the food really won't stick.

Just one word of caution, some turkey fryers are aluminum

which is not a good idea for tomato sauce. The aluminum can react with the acid in the tomato. If you can find a very large stainless steel pot use that.

Can you get Lyle's Golden Syrup? A British product.

The corn syrup in the brittle recipe is probably to prevent crystalization of the sugar as well as sweetness.

not let you weigh the olives, then add the brine then I would save the brine. I buy my olives from a small ethnic grocery store. They have us get the olives with a little brine, then weigh the...
