Re: Controversial opinions about food

Spinach can be quite nice too, mixed into the cheese sauce (but not sprouts; ew). Mash protip: bake your potatoes then scoop out the flesh once they've cooled a bit. Takes longer but results in flawless, super fluffy mash that's also super easy to... well, mash. Use leftover hollowed out potato skin...

Re: Food fleeting thoughts

I do think a lot of popular recipes skew sweeter than they need to be. At the risk of generalising, I always leave out at LEAST 1/4 of the sugar in any American recipe. The palet there really does seem to be a lot sweeter than I'm used to; this is reinforced by the almost gagging sweetness of the A...

Fish (hake) and eggplant (/aubergine/brinjal) slices, both crumbed in egg and a mix of pulsed pork rinds and grated parmesan and pan fried in coconut oil. Served with a store-bought spicy low carb tomato sauce that worked super well with the eggplant.

It was yummy.
