If you’re scratch making butter in a stand mixer, you can throw in a shot of fish sauce at the beginning of the process to the same effect1/2 tsp of fish sauce for each anchovy filet you would add. Mind that this will flavor the FREE BUTTERMILK, but I am ride or die for umami buttermilk biscuits.

Judging by the complete lack of them at the stores...a lot of people bought way too many of them.

I have very few of those cheeses on hand but I think I see some waffle iron grilled cheese sandwiches in my future

As someone who loves negronis, finished up my red vermouth and gin, don’t want to go out to the liquor store, but still have half a bottle of Campari left...I fully support this recipe and will be trying it tonight.

I’ve been waiting for this article since Meathead posted the video of his fridge... Two of my favorite cooking geniuses together at last!

I have a Big Green Egg and a Weber 22". I rarely grill on the BGE. And I rarely do low and slow on the Weber.

I got Meathead’s book for my birthday last year and it has improved my smoked foods immeasurably.  Big fan.

There’s a run on the local Trader Joe’s right now, and you wouldn’t believe how much booze people are buying. Like, boxes filled with wine and hard liquor. There seems to be a positive correlation between advanced age and how many bottles people are buying, as if they’re gonna party hard until the virus takes ‘em. Read more

I was shunned from the age of four until my sixth birthday for not saving the excess oil from a can of tuna.

Wild Planet, Genova, and Trader Joe’s are my top 3 picks, and the TJ tuna isn’t that much more expensive than Chicken of The Sea etc. Make sure to check the label for “packed in oil”!

Oh, this sounds so good. But my husband won’t eat cheese, my middle son will only eat the Stop & Shop brand (with cheese sauce, not the powder, and only if it’s elbow noodles), and my youngest has recently declared he thinks mac & cheese is too cheesy.

I gift a lot of wine.  I write on the bottle or label with a sharpie.  I appreciate when people do that when giving me a bottle.
