    Whatcha Got Cookin' for Wednesday July 5th?

    I made a pie for the first time and it turned out pretty good! I slow cooked some steak and onions and I used left over puff pastry for the crust. It didn't look that pretty but was yum!

    Pros and cons of a wok you have to "season?"

    Just been thinking about getting a wok. I've never owned one and been browsing around and noticed quite a few of them say they need to be "seasoned." Not sure if its the same thing but at least one I looked at also had to be 'oiled' after every use. Just wondering about the pros and cons of...

    What's the last movie you watched?

    At the cinema I think it was Sausage Party (I know, I don't go much) which happens to be food related and absolutely hilarious and clever. With TV programming being so good these days I find I don't watch as many movies. Bring on the return of GoT!

    Favorite Family Food Failures

    Here's a couple from my childhood; -This wasn't a disaster from my perspective but my mom was not impressed and the food didn't getting eaten. Anyway, I was tasked with making dinner one night and it was spaghetti bolognese. I thought it was a bit boring to have the same recipe as normal but...

    Flexible recipes for end of the week

    Hi all, hope this post fits into this forum. I'm a cooking noob and looking for some flexible recipes that I could use at the end of the week to use up odds and ends leftover in the fridge or cupboard that might go bad if they're not used up. In particular, it would be good to have a flexible...

    Question About Dieting

    I've been having some success with a simple diet that I developed myself and works great for me as a sweet tooth who finds it hard to stop eating sweets once I start but also doesn't want a diet where I give up sweet stuff entirely. Basically I don't worry about eating anything special in my...

    Philosophical question for you all...

    So apparently the 'robo chef' that was announced a few years ago is coming on sale next year: Moley – The world's first robotic kitchen It will be pretty expensive to start but eventually perhaps everyone will have one of these in their homes. At that point, do you think cooking for yourself...

    What herbs to grow and how many?

    Thanks for the replies everyone, lots to think about. I've been thinking about the possibility of growing herbs indoors under lights so I don't have to worry about different climates etc. I wonder if anyone has any experience with that..?

    What herbs to grow and how many?

    Pots and I think I'll have room for about 10 or so which means I could have one each of the main ones or 2-3 plants of a few key herbs.

    How do you make the bacon stick? When I did a bacon wrapped meatloaf I couldn't get the bacon to stay woven stuck to the meatloaf as I moved it. Are there any tricks for this?

    What herbs to grow and how many?

    Hi all, thinking about growing some herbs at home (for cooking) and wondering whether its best to have a small amount of a lot of herbs or a large amount of a few herbs. Also, which herbs to start with. Thanks!

    Really useful menu planning website

    I'm working on a Google docs sheet to organize everything. So far I have a tab with all my shopping list items and a recipe tab. On the recipe tab I can select the relevant items from my shopping list and that helps me calculate cost per serve of each dish. Each dish I make I'm rating the...

    How often do you "play with your food?"

    Playing with food and hitting some home runs from time to time is a process/skill I wish to develop. It would be cool to be able to just take whatever is on hand and make something good with it. Do you think you just develop a sense of what should work over time by doing lots and lots of...

    Recipe/Cooking App Idea

    I had this idea for an app the other day and thoughts I'd throw it out there in case something already exists and see what others thought. I want an app that will somehow follow where I'm up to in a recipe and read out the next instruction when I need it. I often find myself following recipes...

    Have a look at this!

    Its a complicated issue. On the one hand, people are worried about their culture being Americanized and Westernized and then on the other hand, when people try to engage with their culture with food they complain about it not being authentic enough. These sites are there to make money and get...

    Hello from Goosander

    Hi all, thanks for having me in your lovely forum. I seem to have been able to get through life so far without knowing much about cooking for myself, which has been fine, but now I'm ready to dedicate some time and money to increasing my skills in this area. Not looking to become a :chef: but...
