    Recipe please? Stuffed Sweet Peppers, no tomato sauce

    This is an older post, but I wanted to toss out what the preferred seasoning is in my house for sweet bell peppers… Sumac! That little bit of tanginess really sets off the sweetness of the peppers, making them extra vibrant, and as a bonus it gives a gorgeous color to your filling. It can be...

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    That's useful information, thank you! I did some research, and found a lot of claims about how microwaving (they never specify microwaving for how LONG, which I think would make a difference) a plate would damage the plate, or the microwave, or possibly both… But none of the claims I saw were...

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    I have no problem with threads wandering, but people addressing me directly trying to get me to give up what I'm doing rather than offering assistance is a little bit much. My experience with these sorts of posts is, if I just ignore them, then the people get offended, but if I respond declining...

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    Using different plates could definitely give different results, you're 100% correct there! In my case, I'm using the exact same plate every time because it's the only plate I have of the right size that's microwave safe.

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    There are so many articles warning about the dangers of nonstick pans, or which nonstick pans are dangerous under what circumstances; I don't have the expertise to accurately judge the facts, so I simply don't get any nonstick pans. This is not relevant in this thread, however, because this...

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    Excellent idea! I clearly need to do some testing to see if the temperature of the egg changes my results!

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    An on topic comment, at last! All my eggs come straight from the same carton in the same spot in the refrigerator… But granted, a refrigerator is not the same temperature 100% of the time. That might actually be the reason that the results are not always the same, good thought!

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    That sounds gross, aside from the fact that I don't own a nonstick pan and will not be purchasing one. If you don't like a food without adding fat to it, why bother eating that food, why not just eat something else that doesn't require added fat?

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    If you check out the MasterClass article in my header post, you'll see that the trick is to preheat the plate, which makes the white cook faster than the yolk.

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    Actually, I've NEVER had an egg that sucked from the microwave. I get delicious eggs 100% of the time, super fast and with zero extra cleanup… I'm just having trouble getting the yolk to be exactly the way I want it. Small price to pay… but I'd still like to be able to fix that, which is the...

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    It wouldn't have to be better to make it worth doing, though, right, just equally good. To me it actually IS better, because the ones cooked on the stove top have way too much butter, and oil is even worse (cooking spray is just oil sprayed out of a can).

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    When making a sunny side up egg in the microwave, you cook the egg on the same plate you're going to eat off of, so there is ZERO cleanup beyond that plate and whatever utensil you eat with. Very convenient!

    Making sunny side up eggs in the microwave

    Yes, it can be done, as shown in this MasterClass post: https://www.masterclass.com/articles/how-to-cook-sunny-side-up-eggs#7sBXfIMs9UOHoPCwzvdSve Even using the same size eggs, the same plate, and the same microwave, every time, I'm getting inconsistent results, including the yolk cooked...

    Can anyone identify this fruit?

    The link to the Food Network takes you to the DISCOVERY Channel?! That's pretty wild… Anyways, the chef who made the salad is Brandon Carter, and the other one is Mia Castro.

    Can anyone identify this fruit?

    Here's the episode: https://watch.foodnetwork.com/video/beat-bobby-flay-food-network/smoove-moves I caught another fleeting glimpse of the citrus, unfortunately it's a really tiny picture: It looks too cylindrical to be a lemon…? Could it be a hybrid? Is it possible he referred to it as...

    Can anyone identify this fruit?

    In my searches thus far, I have not found ANY lemons that are shaped like that, including the ones in post 3, which have tiny pointy little noses, dramatically different than what is shown in the picture.

    Can anyone identify this fruit?

    Unfortunately, no; they neither named the fruit nor gave any insight into it. I've looked up everything everyone had suggested, and have yet to find a picture that matches the actual fruit that was used…

    Can anyone identify this fruit?

    There are a lot of intriguing suggestions… But none of them completely explain the image, which is of a pale yellow citrus fruit, with an irregular skin and a very prominent "nose."…?

    Can anyone identify this fruit?

    Back in the olden days, someone who was a bad cook would be referred to as being able to burn water; I don't think anybody actually says that anymore, lol, but I always thought it was funny. I had the sound on while I was playing the video; the chef just referred to it as "citrus," so that's...

    Can anyone identify this fruit?

    This fruit being squeezed was only visible for a split second on an episode of Beat Bobby Flay. The chef was using it to make a dressing, and this juice was all of the liquid other than a slosh of soy sauce; wouldn't lemon juice be too strong for that? Plus, the way the fruit has such an obvious...

    Seasonings to pair with rosemary?

    Actually, there's nothing that anyone said in this thread that had any effect on my seasoning concept. The parsley and cilantro were both MY ideas, I double-checked to be sure; I brought up parsley in my original post, and I brought up cilantro several pages before anyone else suggested it. And...

    Seasonings to pair with rosemary?

    I dunno, that kind of sounds like the same situation as people going around the neighborhood with baskets of zucchini, and all the neighbors closing their curtains and turning off their TVs so they can pretend they aren't home so they don't have to take any more zucchini, lol!

    Seasonings to pair with rosemary?

    The happy epilogue to this story: My husband loved my sauce so much that, after he had scraped as much as he could out of the container, he rinsed the container and used that water to make instant mashed potatoes with, so he wouldn't waste ANY of my sauce! I'm probably the least experienced cook...

    Seasonings to pair with rosemary?

    I hadn't known that about the salicylates, that's really interesting, thank you for sharing that! I've eaten some rosemary in the past, in Italian food, for example, and never had ANY reaction to it, so, I'm wondering if this might be an issue of raw vs cooked, like it sounds like you have with...

    Seasonings to pair with rosemary?

    Basil used to provoke my WORST reaction, which is really saying something, I could just about vomit just from the smell of it… But now I can use it! I use a light hand, but I put it on a bunch of things now, even my instant pineapple sorbet! The other members of the mint family were much milder...
