Branston Pickle is The Best Thing Ever. I love it on a cheese sandwich, also great on a baked potato or for a nice snacky lunch with fruit and crackers.

I googled it. Paula Deen has a recipe, of course. It looks so awful it can only be good. I'm going to try it.

I hate pumpkin pie. I'm not convinced pumpkins are even food. The smell, that stringy stuff inside - disgusting.

It seems like the difference here is that you and your friends made a plan to create a nice dinner together while Amelia's host made a plan and told the guests that they will be paying for it. I would love to be included in your party. If I were Amelia I might decline the tacky invitation.

This recipe looks good, but I think frozen spinach is disgusting. I assume you could wilt 10 ounces of actual spinach in less time than you could squeeze that icky green water out of a lump of mushy thawed spinach. Is there any reason not to do that?

So we're all admiring how cute this chicken is, meek and with bangs that need to be cut, and then we hear about tacos and Top Chef? I can hardly stand to eat the homely chickens. I am certainly not going to eat one of these.

I find 6 minutes to be too long. 4 is plenty, with a little stirring time at the end to bring it together.

I have a Kuhn-Rikon. It's totally safe and easy to use. I suppose you can overcook your food and make mush out of almost anything, but if you get a good cookbook (anything by Lorna Sass or Pressure Cooking for Everyone by Rodgers and Ward for example) and follow the directions you can make a pretty fabulous dinner when you're in a hurry. I have made soup, chili, pot roast, stew, cheesecake, cranberry relish, risotto (4 minutes), moroccan chicken (Rodgers and Ward, a big favorite), and it's a great way to cook beans when you forget to soak them overnight. I have a ceramic cooktop and I have never made anything in my pressure cooker that didn't turn out right.
