 So True!  When I first joined this site, I started a thread about MSG and at the time believed it to be a horrible product and very bad for us.  After reading through the material presented to me from other posters on the site, I came to the conclusion that it is not only not that bad, but does help to create a pretty flavorful dish.  I don't use it all the time, but I no longer avoid it like the plague.

I watched and enjoyed that documentary very much. It is always been a hobby of mine to make authentic and americanized versions side by side and compare. There are definitely things that make it "Americanized" (read sugar) but harder to agree on authentic
I just did my first shop for the challenge and although I can make $10 or less meals all day, it is harder than I thought to do with a more desirable dish. What about portion amounts? I know you mentioned factoring whole bag of beans if used, but even though I am under for what I am making tonight, for future, i may just make single serving items.

I am almost always able to near exact duplicate anything I have eaten. Some take me longer to master than others, but I am very stubborn and cheap. Those two attributes go a long way in recreating an item. I like to eat top quality, but have a fast casual...

My wife is from Minnesota and we are big fans of the juicy lucys. I think I will have to make them soon.
I always loved and often craved a Big Mac. As I got older, it became difficult to eat at McDs without feeling sick for hours after. As Louis CK says "Everytime you eat Mcdonald's as a kid is a success, and as an adult a failure". So I make my own. da da da Da da, I'm lovin it.
