Nah, I haven't made them. The whole 12-24 hour prep time keeps scaring me away.

I made some! I didn't like how it came out at first, but I liked it after it refridgerated overnight. The olive oil was actually a bit much. Half and half with something mild like sunflower or safflower might be good. It also needed more egg yolk and mustard I think. And I only got about a cup out o...

Fat has really gotten a bad rap lately. We do need to consume lots of fats, especially animal fats, but plant fats too. I hear you about the olive oil though. It kills me what I have to pay for decent oils. And there is such a huge price difference between the nasty oils and the good stuff that it's...

Yesterday: Brown rice Stewed tomatoes Mushrooms Salt, pepper, sesame oil Today: Navy beans Stewed tomatoes Frozen chopped spinach salt, pepper, olive oil. Of course, I think there are vari...

Something I do for myself a lot is bake extras when I bake potatoes, and the next morning toss them in the frying pan with butter, chop em up good with the spatula, throw in salt pepper parsley, sometimes garlic and paprika, and fry till crispy. Then crack a few eggs in and scramble it all together....

I like skins on, too. :-D

A nice non-potato mashed root veggie dish is sunshine mash, which is carrots and parsnips, I think with butter and pepper. I loooove parsnips.

Mashed potato variations

This was in the newspaper last week and I saved it since I'm a big mashed spud fan. Just don't mash 'em tomorrow. Gotta have BOILED tatties on St Pat's day. I can't verify the authenticity on any of these dishes; it's from a publication by the US potato board. Colcannon: mashed potato with scallion ...

It's like TV dinners every night at Mom's house! :rofl Except the spaghetti nights (Mmm. Ragu) and Hamburger Helper, and now she's discovered those godawful casserole-in-a-box things. Can you tell I've been trying to get her to cook/eat better for years? :roll

Well, I've been trying to make choices that avoid wheat as much as possible (corn tortilla wraps, rice and potatoes, etc) but I haven't totally cut it. (Haven't gotten to do a good grocery run lately) I don't notice too much difference yet. I definately feel that this is a food thing (I do also get ...

Mmm, bread and cookies. Yeah, I wonder how well rice flour can replace white flour in things. Is it pretty much equal in properties? I know the crunchy-ish grocery chain makes a big deal out of having special selection for celiac... but that's not necessarily wheat free, just gluten free, right? The...

Wheat Free

Okay, so I'm thinking about starting to maybe try the wheat free thing for a while. I tried it for three days last week and I think it helped (I have miserable itchy eczema on my face, and I know it's an allergy, the way it comes and goes sporadically). So, I'm looking for some ideas. I don't want t...

Sunday Dinner Chicken

Okay, my mom does this, so I don't have the exact recipe perse... Fry up some onion and celery (and mushroom?) in plenty of oil to not quite done-ness. Dump the chunks but not the oil out of the pan into a bowl or something, and bread your chicken parts (she uses a flour, salt and pepper mix; maybe ...
