Not sure what you're saying. Is it too healthy for you?

Not at all, just trying to show some awareness that the world doesn’t revolve around the US and our celebrations.

I’d eat most of that, but I don’t care for bell peppers. I am trying to figure out how they created the turkey’s head. It must be a really thick dip if it’s still holding its shape – I’d probably have sliced the top of a mushroom and used the dip to ‘glue’ the eyes, beak, and wattle to the surface.

tim is the cook ... but perhaps some hard boiled egg for the head? I'd like all those veg. It was a lot easier to adapt when I found out I'm diabetic.  Vegetables are a saving grace. There are very few we do not eat.

it's been a while since anything was posted here, but here's what we did for dinner tonight:
was very tasty relatively easy. we used the lower carb option for the breading and used more cheese. we paired it with the Instant Pot risotto recipe @Mikiesboy shared with me.
oh, and watch the cooking time on the chops. ours were done much sooner than anticipated, and nothing's worse than dried out pork chops

Ooh, those chops look amazing! Wonder if it would be doable with chicken instead... We don't eat a lot of pork at present, due to the state of pig farming in this country.

Check with a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the largest breast, unless you are experienced enough to feel it is done by touch.

And what temperature are we looking for?

165f   if you're cooking a whole chicken take the temp in the thigh but not touching bone.

In concept this vaguely reminds me of an eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough recipe I found somewhere (no eggs means less risk of salmonella).

Precisely. Also, the famous”Brownie in a mug” is of the same family in nature. THIS one I like because it’s healthy and I’ve used it as my desert during diets many times.

peanut butter (crunchy or smooth…)

I always thought the peanut butter was a very American food. It is, but North American, just not specifically the US! That’s right, it’s Canadian!

See what kinds of silly trivia you learn when you watch Jimmy Kimmel Live (From His Home!) with Sandra Oh. Jimmy had Sandra play a game where she had to identify whether something was Canadian or not. They weren’t obvious or easy. She was amazing and was 100% accurate.

My favorite grouping for pie is: Spitzenburg, Winter Banana, Granny Smith and Rome. Unfortunately, three of those varieties will be almost impossible to find in a store because the fruit industry is driven by fruit that keeps longest in storage or is patented by individual growing / packing groups. 

I’ve never even heard of the first two. But I have heard of the other two. Possibly because the Bay Area is close enough to ship from prime apple-growing regions, they’re grown in Northern California, or I watch America’s Test Kitchen & Cook’s Country too much! I think I’ve seen Safeway advertise the two I’ve heard of. (I don’t do gourmet grocery stores like Whole Foods, or farmer’s markets.)

When using apples for cooking and especially baking, always use a variety of apply varieties.

I’ve never heard of this, so thanks for the tip.

Right now, my favourite apple is the Pink Lady variety, though Fuji is a close second.  Would they be good cooked in pies? When we can find them, Spy apples are what we use in pies , because that’s the ones my mom says work best as cooking apples. Now you have me thinking there are other options. 

I haven’t done it in a long time, but I used to slice Macs and cook them in a pot with with brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon - made for a tasty treat. Oh gee, now I want some...

      My own twist on the classic English tea time treat.
       
      You need:
       
      400ml whole wheat flour
      2 tsp baking powder
      1/2 tsp salt
      60g butter
      A handful of almonds, chopped or crushed
      150ml milk
       
      1. Set oven to 225*C.
       
      2. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Divide the butter into little pieces with your fingers and add to the flour mix until you have a loose mass.
       
      3. Add the almonds and the milk, kneading with your hands until everything's mixed together, but take care that you don't make the dough too dense or smooth. It's better if it's a little bit rough.
       
      4. Divide the dough into two flat-ish round patties that you place on a baking tray. With a knife, make a cross in each patty, without cutting all the way through, and prick them a few times with a fork.
       
      5. Place the baking tray in the middle of the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until the scones are nice and golden on top.
       
      6. Leave them to rest in room temperature for a few minutes before quartering and serving with butter, preserves or whatever you want, and don't forget a nice pot of tea!
       
       
       
      For plain scones, just skip the almonds. Other tasty variations on this recipe include adding other types of nuts, dried cranberries or blueberries, raisins or other dried fruits. The sky's the limit, so go wild!

      Hi, Guys and Girls.
       
      I am organizing my annual Macmillan Coffee morning for September, and I am looking for some different cake recipes to try out. 
       
      I do the usual ones, sponge, carrot cake, fruit cake, chocolate cake, etc.
       
      I am looking for some more unusual ones to give my guests something different to taste. Maybe some of our non-UK members have some suggestions from their countries? 
       
      All I ask is can you keep it fairly simple as my team has to be able to follow the recipe easily and I pay for the ingredients myself or by donation. 
       
       in advance  
    • By comicfan
      Alright anyone who talks to me or reads my work knows I love food. I talk about it, I write about, and in at least one of my stories I included my recipes for things. So I thought I would ask the group feel like sharing a recipe or two?
       
      I'll begin this with one my favorites
       
      My Blueberry Buckle recipe. Basically it is blueberry cake and I've cooked it all year using frozen blueberries when fresh are no longer available.
       

      Blueberry Buckle
      Ingredients 3/4 cup white sugar 1/4 cup shortening 1 egg 1/2 cup milk ½ teaspoon of vanilla 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 ½ cups fresh blueberries 1/2 cup white sugar 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 cup butter, softened Directions
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease one 8x8 inch pan. Cream together 3/4 cup sugar, shortening, vanilla, and egg. In a separate bowl mix together 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir into sugar mixture, alternating with milk. Stir in blueberries. Pour into greased 8x8 inch pan. To make topping: Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter. Sprinkle over cake batter. Bake at 375 degree F (190 degrees C) for 25-30 minutes. So there is the first one. Who wants add one of theirs?
