    How do you brown potatoes?

    When browning potatoes, patience is a virtue. Definitely pat them dry, generous amount of bacon fat or oil, nice and hot. Dump the potatoes in and, as Alton Brown says, walk away. Give them time to get nice and crispy before you stir them.

    Kitchen cleanup etiquette Question

    If the existing agreement was that C didn't have to help keep kitchen clean, then A's response was inappropriate. That said, all three do need to sit down and hash out some new rules pronto. And cover the stove reflectors with tin foil for easy clean up.

    Chicken gizzards and hearts

    Shepard's Pie question

    Be sure to add a half teaspoon of Thyme to your Cottage or Shepherd's Pie. It's really good, plus it's one of the traditional recipe ingredients. I like the idea of a bit of horseradish in the taters!

    Ruffles Max Flame Grilled Steak Potato Chips Review

    I was also surprised that the things had a definite grilled steak flavor. It was very subtle, not overwhelming, which is good.

    At the Natural Science Museum in Raleigh NC, they have an annual Bugfest. One of the attractions is a tasting buffet of a few dishes made with bugs. We used to go every year and give them a taste. The problem was that the dishes the bugs were in generally were not very tasty, just mediocre...
