    What is full serving of vegetables?

    You can treat vegetables like a freebie food. Just eat as many as you want. Of the not-overly-starchy kinds.

    Mail a cake?

    I'm more amazed than anything that there was actually a helpful response on this subject. I can't quite imagine a successful cake-mailing. I imagine something more like cake-like-goop in a box.

    What kind of Indian dishes do you like?

    Yeah it was a bit of a shock to me upon learning that Curry is actually just a word for spice. I mean, when I think curry I have a fairly specific idea of what it should taste like. I have yet to have an indian dish I haven't liked, though.

    Get your Free Outback steak

    Every Outback in my area was closed down about a year or two ago. And I loved the place. It was like a discount steakhouse. How could you go wrong?

    What would you make for breakfast if time wasn't an issue?

    "Breakfast burritos" loaded with a nice (somehwat over-)marinated steak, eggs, and a bit of bacon just for the heck of it. Sort of a fat guy breakfast, I guess. But absolutely fantastic.

    Cooking myths

    One of the greatest myths I know of is that food needs to be complicated to be fancy. There is nothing better than something simple created with only two or three ingredients (spices included!) and presented in a beautiful way. Cooking is an art. A very, very simple art.

    What would you make for breakfast if time wasn't an issue?

    I'm going to make some homemade granola cereal, actually. That's a fantastic idea. I love cereal but can't quite handle how insanely processed even the healthiest versions often are.

    What would you make for breakfast if time wasn't an issue?

    For the first week I'm making up a nice big omelette loaded up with fresh garden picked veggies, along with some homemade oven baked potatoes (as a substitute for "homefries.") But the thing is, I certainly want to get a bit more creative with it. When I was younger I did a lot of breakfast...

    How long can I keep these for?

    I don't know about you guys but it makes me a little bit suspicious of honey that it will last forever. I don't trust things that don't die.

    What would you make for breakfast if time wasn't an issue?

    If I had infinite time in the mornings I would almost certainly make a huge breakfast every morning. I'm going to be making it a commitment to myself that one day a week I'm going to make an elaborate breakfast. It's something I really miss from my younger years when time was a non-issue. So if...

    What to do with leftovers?

    The best thing to do is actually cook things where the leftovers can actually be used as an ingredient for the next thing. This way you're not eating "leftovers," really. For example, if I make fajitas for dinner, I will eat some sort of a stir fry the following day. Maybe toss on some cheese...

    Bread machines

    If you're going to bother baking bread it's almost crazy to bother with a breadmaker. And who among us actually wants any more freaking appliances that only do one thing? Here's the deal, buy yourself one decent loaf pan and just work on your recipe until you've perfected it. Take one very...

    What have you had for breakfast lately?

    I just recently made up some pancake mix. Various types of pancakes the next couple of days. Great news, or greatest news?

    Lunch Menu Specials

    Yeah, we really need more information. Is it appropriate for you to have a lunch salad, or a relatively simple meal, etc. Without knowing the general theme of your menu it's hard to throw out ideas that don't just seem like throwing random ideas out there.

    Does ANYONE really know how to cook for 2?

    Honestly, despite trying my best to cook for two for the last several months, all I've really accomplished is starting a nifty system of getting good use out of leftovers. Such as, I'll often make something like fajitas and turn it into a poor mans (delicious!) stir fry for lunch the following...

    Saturday's Supper 9/3

    Tonight will be homemade tortilla chips turned into a nacho platter with homemade guacamole and homemade salsa. Just because I love junk food, and fresh food. All at the same time.

    Hey Ginny, this place is great, but don't make the same mistake I did. I was unable to come around for a few days and now the whole place has already changed! Keep comin around.

    Veggies for breakfast?

    Just start eating vegetables in the morning. No one ever said you had to eat eggs and toast or oatmeal for breakfast. Seriously, nice steamed veggies would probably have you feeling terrific by lunch.

    Who's Trying to Lose Weight?

    I cut out coffee and soda and now drink only green tea and water. I started losing weight without changing any of my actual eating habits. Thing is, I'm fuller quicker. I guess all that coffee and soda just stretched me out or something.

    Dinner Saturday 20th of August

    Who are the people who don't put beans in chili? And that thing looks fantastic. My dinner for the evening was just nice well made sandwiches loaded with fresh veggies and black forest ham. I was in a lazy mood.
