this is very interesting. i keep meaning to get some food prep gloves.

japalenos never usually bother me. poblanos, however, kill my hands- but not my husbands! it's too funny, i find poblanos to be more mild than jalapenos.

anyone know the reasoning behind this?

These look absolutely delicious. I usually have a hard time thinking outside of the box when it comes to crowd pleasing HDs.

Also, I LOVE the sweet potato suggestion!

the most recent "challenging" thing I made was guajillo chile salsa. I then simmered cubes of pork and potato in it. served it with homemade sopes.

it wasn't hard, but it was something i've never done before and something i've never eaten before. i was watching food network (actual cooking shows were on!)- and there was a mexican show where the host made it.

it was delicious! it was a bit of a pain to find dried guajillo chiles but it was so worth it when i did :)

just recently made what i would consider the best soup to ever come out of my kitchen. it was definitely a "stone soup" type- dirt cheap. cooked up a whole bag of pinto beans w/ garlic, bay leaf, salt and rosemary, pureed half, added the bean broth to sauteed onion, carrot, celery. then added the puree and the whole beans along with farro (or barley), cooked seperately. throw pureed and diced tomatoes in there and you're good to go!

this is timely for me. i have a similar style containers by martha stewart. i've had them for about 1.5 years and they just started leaking somehow. curry soup stinking up my lunch bag. plus, they're VERY heavy! i take the train to work and have a bit of a walk so lugging a heavy bag is no fun.

i just made a big batch of soup and had a moment of genius- a mason jar. i was hesistant to use it at first, but i did and it was wonderful. tight seal, lighter than the alternative, effective use of vertical space and CHEAP! it is the most hipster thing i've ever done but it is life changing.

this is a great review, thanks. i got so excited when i saw the first image but you bring up some really good points. i'd love to get into canning- i see you teach the basics? has the kitchn done any articles on it? or do you have any particular websites that you find especially helpful? thanks :)

italian wedding soup is the one and only real family recipe that my mom has. i hardly ever see recipes online with the egg/parmesan mix added at the end. nicely done!! it sounds delicious. my family uses escarole and blanches it and squeezes it out to get rid of the bitterness.

horray, bananas!

i've only tried the banana ice cream but i am absolutely in love. i subscribe to the notion that a little bit of "bad for you" food is more satisfying than a ton of good food trying to act bad, but banana ice cream really hits the spot for me.

i do bananas, peanut butter, cocoa powder and a little vanilla extract in the food processor and it is as satisfying as real ice cream. freshly made is like soft serve, but freeze it for more of a sorbet texture. it is wonderful!

i remember trying to eat a piece of pizza right after getting braces. a terrible mistake. you'll get used to it, though and i'm sure in no time you'll be able to enjoy your favorite foods again :)

i think the only problem i ever had after i got used to braces was a sugar daddy. i do not recommend.

adding myself to the ranks of people who have absolutely no problem with rice. other than the water coming off to quickly and needing to add more i have had no issues.

i cannot, however, cook bacon. sigh.

and to add to stevenvox- we dropped the bottle of tumeric on our vinyl kitchen floor and my husband made the mistake of cleaning it up with a wet towel. oh god.

magic eraser worked pretty well, but you could still see it in some bits. luckily it was a rental with a very very old tacky retro floor. the bit of yellow added some character, i think.
