I've made this many times and even adapted it to make a savory pancake with bacon, mushrooms and pearl onions. I even bought a 17" cast iron pan for when I double the recipe.
If memory serves I got the original idea here from you guys!

Those look more like yams, garnet yams at that, not sweet potatoes and isn't this basically skin-on candied yams? The only thing missing is the marshmallows

I keep a box of disposable plastic food-prep gloves in my kitchen. One box lasts me for a few years so they're a good deal. I use them when I have to handle hot chile peppers and I use them when I have to pull the skin off raw chicken because I hate the idea of getting raw chicken cooties under my fingernails.

Vegetarian or not, a Dutch Oven is an indispensable cooking vessel and I have several in different sizes.
However, I would under no circumstances ever pay anywhere near $300 for an imported or enameled piece of cookware. That's a ridiculous waste of money when Lodge makes the best cast iron here in America (with the exception of their enameled cookware) at very reasonable prices.
As to Guy Fieri who is a major d-bag, his signature items are made in China! Again, why buy cheap stuff from China when you can buy quality, long lasting goods made here?

Gee girls, I thought jerky was one of those gender foods that only guys eat.
Like if you made eggplant jerky- only women would eat that.
Rock on!

1.Seasoning and technique is okay but I don't care for the way he butchers a beautiful T-bone/Porterhouse by taking it off the bone. He's wasting some delicious bites left next to the bone. This is fine for a boneless cut of beef but not a bone-in cut.
2. Cooking a steak in a pan will actually yield juices that can make a wonderful sauce but this get's lost on a grill.

I keep corkscrews everywhere- one in the car, the camp kitchen, and travel bag. I also have a couple of Swiss Army Knives that have a corkscrew.
But first and foremost I never, ever travel anywhere, even a hotel without my coffee kit- cone, filters, grinder, beans and my own cup and yes, a small single burner camp stove and kettle. The rest I can adapt to but I will not begin a day without MY coffee.

With the exception of a stainess steel sauce pan and stock pot I only use cast iron. Also NEVER use soap or steel scrubbers.
I only use hot water and a piece of a loofa sponge to clean my pans.
I'm making this right now.

What a silly thing to say- "The proximity to the ocean and access to bountiful fresh produce year round..."
Proximity to the ocean in Venice has nothing to do availablity of a variety of produce. She probably goes to Whole Foods on Lincoln and Rose like all the other Yuppies.

Jeez folks, its coffee. Don't over-think it.
Sure, use your Chemex or Melita cone for day to day personal use but having a coffee maker even if you only use it a few times a year is wise.
I use a #4 Melita cone paper filter pour over daly for each individual cup I make myself. My Braun coffee maker uses the same size and type of filter.

I would have reported them to the cheese police but seriously, serving cheese at the wrong temp is unforgivable. My question to you is this: why didn't you send it back?
