I love one pot meals, especially meat and potato types. I was watching Gordon Ramsey's kitchen nightmares and he mentioned a dish called a Lancaster hot pot. It looked delicious with browned meat, potato's and onions all in one pot. Does anyone know of a recipe for this dish as well as other dishes that are similar in composition? Red.
Awesome phatch, that's the answer I was looking for.   Red.
eastshores, That's an interesting factoid I'll be sure to remember.   Thanks, Red.
I have an egg cooker that was given to me as a gift.   It's a neat little egg shaped cooker made by Cuisinart. For those not familiar with it; it cooks eggs to a specific doneness by steaming them, based on the amount of water you add to the cooker. They supply a cup with markings for 1-7 soft, 1-7 hard, etc.   My question is this; does the freshness of an egg determine where the yolk solidifies in the egg when stood on end and syeamed to hard cooked.   Since I only...
Hi, A friend told me that he had the opportunity to revitalize a old kitchen this past weekend. Among the stuff found in the kitchen were old butcherblock style cutting boards. Some of which were so big, they had handles on the sides and were found on edge behind some cabinets.   Being a carpenter, he asked me how to rejuvenate them. I said scrape them then sand then oil.   After saying this, I wondered if this was good advice, since they would be used again in...
Chefross, The "off" aroma reminded me of ammonia.   I purchase most of my larger tails from a wholesaler and have never had issues before.

When I got down to enjoying it, I noticed there was a faint hint of an "off" aroma and i was wondering what this could be. It wasn't mushy or discolored but wasn't as buttery smooth in texture as I was expecting, and this "off" aroma bothered me.   Any ideas...?   Red.
Thank you all, that was a big help.   Red.
Ok , I'm older and I recall a time when canned goods were stocked in fallout shelters for who knows how long.   So now-a-days, when when should canned products be tossed?   (I seem to also recall my father telling me to toss any can that was puffy at the ends otherwise, it was good to eat.)     Red.
My wife is under the impression that the "best by date" stamped on the bottom of canned products such as soup and such means it needs to be thrown out after that date.   I say that is only a guideline as to the best taste and by no means should it be considered an expiration date.   Can you clarify this please...   Red.
