This article is written for the internet, right? It does contain a simple question as its headline that can be googled as is. And yet you just give a few sentences about what you suspect is happening? Here's an explanation that took me 15 seconds to find: http://blogs.howstuffworks.com/2009/12/21/how-twitching-frog-legs-work-a-little-gross-yes-but-fascinating/

I'm in a similar bind, but I'm doing a Winnie The Pooh themed shower and feel like "pigs in a blanket" is a little strange in the context of Piglet, so I was trying to find a similar veggie alternative, was thinking about asparagus wrapped in phyllo, but would like other ideas as well.

I second what Stuccolow says, the tumblers shatter into the tiniest pieces, our cats broke most of ours.

my favorite cheat fudge:
Melt 18 oz. of chocolate chips in a pan with one 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk. Take off the heat and add 1.5 tsp of vanilla extract. Spread evenly in a buttered or lined 8 or 9 inch pan, chill 2 hour until firm, cut into squares. You can add nuts when you add the vanilla or use another flavored extract (I like peppermint). People will love it and be amazed and it is crazy easy to do.

Regarding something else Imrinc said, anyone who lives in a suburb in the mid-atlantic to north east knows there's an overpopulation of deer. They're on the side of the road every evening, some eating, some about to jump in front of a car, some already roadkill. And it's not just an "overpopulation of unnecessary buildings" that caused that. Suburban sprawl and housing has something to do with it, but so does eradicating the animals that hunt deer in the wild. So, until there's a larger population of wolves and mountain lions, people are going to have to step in and cull the population of deer. I'd much rather people going out and hunting for sport and food than see the carcasses pile up on the side of the road.

The American Foundation for the Blind has some good tips as well for getting around in the kitchen with vision loss.

Here's the link to their Senior Sight website about cooking:

I always thought of it as a chemical on packaged food ingredient lists and not something you'd find in a regular kitchen, but a few episodes ago on Top Chef someone used it, I think it was Michael in a Quick Fire challenge.

Thanks for the further info.

many of the things I like from them, like cakelet pans and such, get phased through pretty quickly, so I know if I can wait a couple of months it'll be a decent price when they push it to clearance.

"the roasting arm is detachable" - as the article says. Doesn't make it cheaper or less ridiculous, but it does mean that you can store it just as easily as any other roaster, and presumably you can use the roasting pan for non-suspension roasting needs. Also, it looks to be about the same price as other All-Clad roasting pans.
Come on people, actually read the article before you comment, this one was even only about ten sentences long.

My favorite is Andrea Meyers' Black Bean Soup with 5 Peppers and Ham, all day in the crockpot, just had it for dinner last night. Keeps great in the freezer. Can be made vegan too.

I love apple butter, on a biscuit and on an english muffin would be my favorites. I don't know if this is just a southern thing, but cooking apple butter was a big boy scouts/church fundraiser where I grew up. They cook it all day in big pots over fires and then can the apple butter. There always seems to be a source to stock up somewhere in the fall in Virginia, farmers markets, fall festivals, etc...

the vendors in my neighborhood in Brooklyn use hand-held metal ice shavers and an ice block. I googled "hand ice shaver" and found a bunch for $10-$20.

dry-cured black olives with herbes de Provence was my introduction. Really amazing. Available at a lot of olive bars.

I've used a terracotta thing with great success but my new plan is to just make brown sugar as needed using white sugar and molasses, since that's all that most modern brown sugar is. I first saw it on the Good Eats episode about molasses but there's lots of other information on it on the internet, such as
http://www.joyofbaking.com/sugar.html
I think the ratio is 1 cup of sugar to 1 tbls of molasses for light brown, two for dark.

My parents found out about Luzianne at a restaurant, and now it's my addiction. I load up when I'm in Virginia and now I've got my yankee husband addicted too. My family's seafood stuffed mushrooms come from a restaurant my grandparents used to go to.

I saw on his website that some commenters had just used chicken parts rather than a whole chicken. if I were to just use thighs, how long do you suppose I should cook it? Might make for an easy, fast weeknight dinner.

On Martha Stewart today she sort of combined the method by boogaloobaby and the one in the video. She scored the skin into quarters, leading out from top. Then she split it from the top, broke it into the quarters, and hit them on the back with a wooden spoon over a bowl, like the video. It was really fast and clean.

I'm going really easy. I'm making chocolate chip cookies with reese's cups in them. My mom used to make them for every bake sale when I was a kid. I thought it'd be a good cookie plus candy treat for Halloween for my coworkers. Not that it really needs a recipe, but I found one if anyone wants it: http://www.recipezaar.com/31311
