Re: Today I Made:

I started yesterday, and finished today, a chicken soup with rice. Got the leg quarters falling off bone in under an hour thanks to my pressure cooker. Left it with stock vegetables in the fridge overnight and then picked over the chicken, strained the broth in my chinois, and finished off the soup ...

Re: Today I Made:

Recently made flan, the super simple four-ingredient condensed milk kind, because I bought a flanera to use for pot-in-pot cooking with my pressure cooker. And then I wanted flan. I've actually never made it before, though I love it; I would like to find (hint hint, if anyone has a handy recipe) a g...

Re: The Joys of Good Cookware

Pressure cooker is great for cutting my pork butt recipes down from 6+ hours cooking time to 90 minutes.

Also nice for beans, stock, basically things that tend to take too long to begin with.

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

You should try some brown ales, they are more malt-forward and traditionally not bitter. Also, milds. I did have an American Brown Ale that had a bit of hoppiness. "Brown ale" is super varied. UK browns are as you describe, but many, many American browns are hoppy. I am always disappointe...

I'm not sure I could even tell the difference between ghee and butter on a piece of butter naan. That's how little I use ghee. And my Indian cooking may not be close to as good as a native's but when I'm on, it's on.
