Tried a few other new recipes the last week or so.

Spiced chickpeas are crisped in olive oil, then simmered in a garlicky coconut milk for an insanely creamy, basically-good-for-you stew that evokes stews found in South India and parts of the Caribbean While the...

Spiced chickpea stew with turmeric. I added lime juice, and probably would have used cilantro instead of the mint had I not bought the mint. And I didn't love the kale (though my kale was kind of on its last legs, so that could be to blame). Came out great though. 

And, obviously, when you have extra mint, there's only one thing to do:

We thought we’d landed upon the simplest yeast bread recipe in 2007, when Mark Bittman wrote about the no-knead approach of Jim Lahey, owner of Sullivan Street Bakery It quickly became (and remains) one of our...

Another iteration of crusty, no-knead bread, this time from a different recipe. This one came out yeastier, which I liked, but with a slightly denser crumb, which could have just been my fault. The crust came out amazing though.

That recipe makes two loaves. I don't have a pizza stone, so for the first one I used an overturned cast iron pan, and for the second I just used a dutch oven, uncovered. I think the right method is somewhere in between. The dutch oven one needed some more browning so halfway through I just took it out and put it directly on the rack.

Classic french omelette. Didn't nail the shape, but the consistency was right.

Pasta alla gricia. One of the best pasta dishes I've ever tasted. I nailed the sauce. 

If you've never seen J. Kenji Lopez-Alt's recipes or videos, he's been doing a video per day for the last few weeks. His spaetzle with kimchi and bacon is next on my list.

Thanks for the recipe. We made it tonight and it came out great. I cheated and used refrigerated biscuits but they were fine. I used Abita Amber and (at my wife's suggestion}  will probably try something a different beer next time. I also won't substitute more beer for the water that is in the recipe. LOL

Heyyy nice! Looks great! I think every time I've made it I've used Yuengling. A few times I've added another half bottle or so - it really starts tasting beer-y haha. Now I stick to one bottle, and if I need to loosen it up I use stock.

I've been thinking of getting a pizza steel instead, but it's expensive enough that it's not an impulse buy, so I just haven't pulled the trigger on either haha.

I kinda want one of these,

This smart oven makes a foolproof, restaurant-quality Neapolitan-style pizza.

That, or I want to take an old grill, and turn it into a pizza oven.

Before it sold out, I was close to buying one of these:

ooni-share.jpg?v=1581341099

Ooni 3 takes the cost and hassle out of cooking pizza outdoors, reaching 932°F in minutes, and cooking pizzas in 60 seconds. Explore the Ooni 3 pizza oven here.

I would be concerned with how that stainless steel withstands the thermal shock of going up to near 1000-deg F.

It's nice that it has a griddle side if you don't have a griddle. The seared steak picture looks cool, too, but I bet you have a cast iron pan that can do that job. For a third of the price you can get something like this which is similar to what I have.

Salamanders get pretty hot and they're made of stainless steel.

Well I was going to post a pic of a simple but tasty low carb snack until I saw @jamo’s pics. I then realized there’s just no point.

I've had the reversible baking steel for about 5 years now. It's awesome, and has quenched my desire to build a pizza oven in my yard. I use the steel weekly for pizza night for the family. I've only used the griddle side once or twice, but it's nice for griddle cooking on a stovetop or gas grill for burgers, etc., mainly due to the large surface area, but the thermal properties of the steel make it a fantastic cooking surface.

I've considered a few of the portable outdoor pizza ovens, like Ooni, Roccbox and Blackstone for Neopolitan style pizzas cooked in 90 seconds. My friend lucked out and found a barely used Roccbox on craigslist for $50.

If I had any free counter space at all I'd be all over that.

No no, we need something low carbs to balance out my carb-exclusive diet from the past few weeks haha

The turtle cake that my wife made the other night certainly wasn’t. She doesn’t get the low carb thing AT ALL. 😞

I don't get the low carb thing either. Carbs aren't necessarily bad for you, it's a problem when you consume too much of them or they're too large a percentage of your daily intake.

I am pre diabetic like most of my ancestors. My daily amount is very low. What I do eat needs to be whole grain or complex (pasta, rice, etc.). I almost went into sugar coma looking at that cake.

That's my Achilles heel.   When I was working, instead of drinking water, I'd grab a can of Pepsi.  Since retirement I've tried to limit my "pop" to just 8 oz of Dr. Pepper in the morning but I drink a pitcher of sweet tea (1/2 cup sugar) each day.  I had a complete blood workup last month so my sugar isn't an issue but I wish I could cut back.   I don't eat many other carbs, very little bread, pizza, sweets, etc.

Bacon bits, Jimmy Dean crumbled sausage, cheese. Add to muffin ports then pour in 12 beat eggs. Bake at 300 for about 15-20 minutes. Voila!

My wife and I have had a routine for the past few weeks. Monday is grocery pick-up day, Friday is 'go buy local' day. This morning we hit a bagel shop, barbeque joint, brewery and one of our favorite restaurants that has transformed itself into a specialty grocery. That box came stuffed with all sorts of local produce, from carrots to artichokes. They even went to the kitchen to get me some jalapenos when I asked about them. 

They all had systems in place to keep folks separate.  Barbeque place really had it down to a science. Nowadays that little excursion seemed like a vacation. LOL

    • I got the rejection email, again. 
    • I am a high handicap , been playing for a year or so and am in my addiction phase. I love learning about the game and do some reading and most of my YouTube watches are golf related but unfortunately don’t get much time on the course. I try to play as much as I can when I’m on vacation and that’s always with rental clubs.    My regular driver is a 11 degree Nike Sq with senior flex shaft. The driver is my least favourite club because my most frequent shot is a high weak block/slice which makes it about 200-220 yards.   About two weeks ago I went to a decent course with my Dad and the only clubs they had were some sort of Srixon CBs and a titleist 917 8 degree Xstiff 65g driver, which should be way above my pay grade , but too my complete surprise it was the best driving performance I’ve ever had. Hit a few beauts . One of my drives flew the green on a 310 yd par 4!! This was completely unexpected . From all those YouTube videos , I know that a titleist 917 isn’t the most forgiving driver ever made , moreover, with what I thought was my swing speed , Xstiff should be completely the wrong choice??    Has anyone gone through this or fitted someone like this as well? I’m really interested in finding out more.
    • How many tickets are available in the ballot?? I’ve been successful in the first three ballots for  tickets to the Open  but there must be 50 000+ people there on the last day.    we are going to the Scottish Open next year( half the price and half the crowds). We have got tickets which include access to the “stadium “ 6th hole and a dedicated bar with plenty TV’s. I don’t think (hope) it will be quite Scottsdale but I’m interested to see.    I forgot to enter the Masters ballot this year but will definitely try again next year. combined with a weeks golf that would be my perfect holiday. 
    • The process is frustratingly slow, but I'm scheduled to get the epidural steroid injection Thursday, two days from now.  From everything I've learned, it may be a couple of days before I'll know how effective it is, but I'm hopeful I can return to something like normal life for  a while.  At least I've been able to do my rules work, being outdoors is a lot better than sitting on my backside all day.   I even added another event, a junior match play competition matching Maryland against Virginia, to be held in Williamsburg, VA.  Foursomes, Fourballs, and singles matches.
