Corn and Lima beans (or other beans I suppose, often from a can), usually with other stuff mixed in (my grandma always added tomatoes and bell peppers in hers). Was a popular food during the great depression era (1930s), when she was growing up, which is why I suppose she liked it.

This succotash used frozen corn and frozen edamame beans (small and green), if i had limas would have used those.

In butter sauteed some onion and garlic, threw in heated through beans and corn, stirred in some greek yogurt. Mixed in chopped cilantro then topped with a mix of diced cherry tomatoes/sliced scallions and more chopped cilantro. Finally crumbled feta over it, salt and pepper.

Will make it this way again if i remember too, was a tasty combination.

So, obviously not quite the same level as Dave's food...

This is a favorite "heading for winter" (southern hemisphere here ;-) ) weeknight meal of mine.  Its easy to make.  It's hot, temperature and spice, hearty and comforting.  Mines obviously a little different from the recipe, i add winter vegetables because, well, their good for me.  I also hold back on the chilli as it tends to upset my guts.

Bonus: Recipe included.

Watched "Beat Bobby Flay" the other day and they made this:  Cacio e Pepe.
It's a simple but really delicious Italian dish that only has a few ingredients:  pasta, pecorino cheese, black pepper, butter.
I bought a nice piece of pecorino calabrese at the local kroger and added a bit of grated parm.  I made it yesterday and today.
Used some olive oil yesterday and added too much.  Left out the olive oil today and really nailed it. Yum!
It's basically an Italian version of mac and cheese.  No garlic! what?

Boris' latest cooking video was hilarious. Hungarian blins. Kinda. If you squint right.

And if you're completely allergic to the fact that a lot of recipes that call for yeast, or baking powder, or baking soda, sometimes substitute fizzy  drink.

I recommend pikelets instead.

Just made one of the best pasta dishes that I've ever tasted!

Pennette Ala Vodka
Recipe courtesy of Carla Pellegrino



pictures don't do the dish justice.  the only downside:   it takes a long time to prepare.

He can't tell you, he still has a hangover.

In all seriousness, I can't get vodka sauce to taste like anything except the vodka no matter how long I cook it, but I hadn't tried making it a cream sauce instead. Maybe the cream masks some of the christmas tree taste.

I've tried Smirnoff, and Stolichnaya. Both smelt and tasted of nail polish remover, to my tongue. (Standard disclaimer -- meatworker, etc, etc.) I also bought a bottle of Finlandia once. It took two years to drain that bottle.

Picked up a bottle of Russian Standard vodka, and wow! This stuff is seriously nice, no smell of nail polish remover, and smoooov. Really smooth. Very, very nice!

Supposedly, you can pour bottom-shelf vodka through a water filter 6-7 times to turn it into slightly-higher-than-bottom-shelf vodka.  Overall, though, it is imprecise distilling or cost-shaving that causes distillers to keep the "tails" in the batch that make it taste less nice.  Stay away from any brand that also sells flavored vodka (which tells you that they don't care about or take particular pride in the vodka itself).

HELP!

Okay, so I picked up some curry roux (from the Japanese section in the supermarket.)

I have 600gram of gravy beef. (It's cheap.)

I have potato. I have carrot. I have onion.

BUT.

The measurements on the box are in Grandpa Simpson measurements!

Can someone tell me what these are in terms of medium potato, medium onion, and average carrots?

13 oz onion, 3.5 oz carrot, and 5 oz potato
