Jun 24th 2008 5:40PM I like most foods, and will eat a number of others that I simply don't care about (eggplant comes to mind). My top 3 most hated foods are 1) Anything that comes out of McDonalds, the smell of everything on the menu is like vomit, even their new salads smell like unchanged grease. 2) Organ meats. I have tried to get along with things like chopped liver, but that metallic flavor is just too much for me. 3) Mayonaise/ Miricle whip / 'salad spread'. It's all nasty.
Jun 23rd 2008 11:08PM Nipa needed to go home. Jennifer needs to go home too. It is starting to look like this season's TNFNS is as good a reason as any to add another cute skinny perky blonde to their cast, as I am 90% sure Kelsey is going to win.
That said, I also think TNFNS challenges are a bit too challenging. Top Chef challenges seem hard-but-possible, these seem to be more testing to see what the person does when they are asked to do something nearly impossible. Not a realistic criteria for the position they are competing to earn.
Jun 17th 2008 9:43PM I check out Show Me The Curry all the time, it's a favorite of mine since they actually use videos and not just recipes. It clarifies places where the recipe alone may not have been enough. They also make helpful suggestions for substitutions and additions.

Jun 4th 2008 12:41PM Renewable fuel resources are important. A better solution would be to use some of the miles and miles of space wasted on pretty lawns for small plots of vegtables. In Russia people provide a *lot* of their own food with millions of little vegtable gardens, and their growing conditions are pretty unfavorable. http://www.gardenrant.com/my_weblog/2008/01/russians-return.html

May 14th 2008 1:06PM If nuking your salad gives you peace of mind, then by all means, enjoy.
When I saw this topic I thought it was about salads with hot ingredients (I have been enjoying that lately since that episode of Top Chef). I did one cold salad with some steamed asparagus and chicken (leftovers) that I reheated and mixed in. It was great.

They already cost the restaurants more than in-season local stuff. Thus there's a built-in-fine.
May 10th 2008 2:06PM After watching Top Chef and seeing the work that goes into producing a frozen-food item I personally don't think they are quite as trivial as I used to. Thanks for the tip on a product that someone took the time on and figured out how to reheat from frozen. It's not as easy as it looks. :)
