I do when the vegetables are halfway decent at my local smalltown market

Not worth it in an apartment
Anyways, what are the best store-bought hot salsas you've had?
I want something that's gonna make me breath heavy and my nose runny, not something that just physically hurts.
>Clint's is okay when I'm feeling it
>Mrs. Renfro's is shit tier
>Jardines is also alright
>Get out of here with that Newman's Own shit.
>Tostitos doesn't make hot salsa that I know of
>Pain is Good doesn't even taste hot to me, it just goes to an immediate burn
Only good Ghost Chili salsa I've had is from a city a few hours away, I never have any other reason to travel there. Anyone have any recommendations?
I get Old Dutch most of the time. It tastes like home.
Que Pasa Chipotle has a really nice flavour (I love subtle chipotle flavours, like in mayonnaise and sauces) but it was a little hot for me.
Whats up /ck/
I'm a struggling college student that isn't going to get paid until the weekend and I've only got around $10 to my name. There's not to much around me that isn't expensive (there's an iHop, but that's kinda costy) and I don't have a car at the moment.
Does anyone know any coupon codes or w/e that I can use to significantly reduce the price of something I can get delivered like pizza? Any thing helps.
Is the stew real? And what are the right combination of spices?
Do Americans even know what this word means?
Thoughts on the new season of Raw.Vegan.Not Gross?
Well, that's not a very flattering screenshot. lol
I already hate this new "so random" intro. The last one was classy as hell, why change it.
Not a fan of the music either. Or the super bright lipgloss in every single video.
Other than that, largely unchanged format. Pretty interesting recipes I guess. The birthday cake looks really tasty.
The book shilling and "comment like subscribe" is also a little obnoxious.
Rate my eggs /ck/
Is green tea all it's cracked up to be? Just ordered a bunch of different kinds, some from china some from japan. Is it noticeably different in taste to regular tea?
Can you suggest any meals that I can make with mostly dry-keep ingredients?
I unfortunately can't really use the refrigerator because things will get stolen and eaten and there isn't really anything I can do about it. I've been having to hide things in my room, or buy things and eat them ASAP. I've been trying to save money on food but with these stipulations it's proving very difficult.
inb4 "move out", I financially can't at this time, so I'm just stuck in a shitty situation. I wish I could get foodstamps to help,...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
cashew curry with water, beef jerky, boil in bag brown rice, curry powder, powdered milk and lastly you'll need pepper jack cheese but it should keep for a few days at least unrefrigerated as long as its in a cool environment.
Gracias anon. I've been looking into different brands of ramen noodles & rice meals, but eating what amounts to schoolkid lunches can be downright depressing
I want to eat bacon but the last time I made some there was like a litre of grease at the end and it was overall fucking messy.
What kind should I buy/stay away from?
How should I cook it?
What can I do with the cooking grease/remains?
Preheat oven to appropriate temperature for your thickness of bacon
Line baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil
Fold up edges in such a way that the foil will capture all the grease
Put bacon on foiled pan, cook until done to your preference
Pull out bacon and drain on paper towels
Return to kitchen after grease has cooled and roll up aluminum foil
Throw that shit away
Alternatively, you can pour out the grease into a vessel for future use if you have the inclination to do so
Why do people shit on bottled water?
My tap water legitimately makes me feel sick after drinking it, aren't medical bill more expensive than 3 bucks for 24 bottles?
ok first of all, where do you live that your tap is making you nauseous? you sure you're not just psyching yourself out?
either way, buy a filter if you're so damn worried. cheaper in the long run.
anyone got a good bean and cheese burrito recipe?
Okay, so I live off of instant noodles. Dirt cheap and just throw it in the microwave and you can survive. That's all I need really.
But genetic blood pressure problems are popping up in me, so I need to cut waaaay back on sodium.
What is super cheap with little or no preparation and is at the very least tasteless (if not tasty) and won't kill me? I need to be able to buy in it bulk and have it not go bad for at least two months.
sidenote: if it requires so much as boiling water i cant do it
beans and rice. you can buy the beans canned and get a simple rice cooker if you really want it easy.
also: canned tuna, sardines, other brands/types of instant noodles that have less sodium.
How do I make this? It looks so delicious.
How come /ck/ doesn't have a sticky? I'm a complete newbie to the board and to cooking and I hate creating "where do I start" threads but fuck... No sticky.
How do I learn to cook? What kitchen tools are essential? What skills are essential? What dishes are essential?
What are the best books/websites/YouTube channels for learning to cook in general, and getting good recipes? Does organic/GMO make a difference or is it marketing bullshit? Obviously Google exists but there is SO MUCH SHIT that I'd at least like a direction to look in.
Because nothing in cooking is universal. Methods, ingredients, traditions, tastes, all vary significantly from region to region.
You learn to cook by cooking.
Essential tools, skills, and dishes, obviously vary by region.
Makes complete sense but I guess I'm asking for what the individual users of /ck/ would reccomend. Places to start, best resources, etc etc
Alton Brown's GoodEats
Jamie Oliver's FoodTube and various TV shows
Gordon Ramsey's youtube channel and various TV shows
Gennaro Contaldo's youtube channel
Yummly for recipe inspiration.
Pick food, make food, evaluate food, repeat.
/ck/, school me on cutting boards. right now i just have shitty plastic cutting boards and i want to buy myself a decent one, particularly with a little ridge to catch the juices if you're cutting up a roast or something. what materials/brands should i look at? what kind of maintenance do they require? i don't want some stupidly expensive meme cutting board, just something that works well and is durable.
I think you should just look to buy a nice standard rectangular cutting board. I have one of those cutting boards with the plastic sheets for each meat type/bread/veg/fruit and its actually fucking terrible. I'd rather just clean and sanitize it each time than deal with those gimmicks. Just keep it standard imo.
>i don't want some stupidly expensive meme cutting board,
Unfortunately for you, the best bang for the buck is an ugly ass hard rubber board from a restaurant supply store
Performance wise, the only way to improve on this is end grain, and decent quality end grain boards are "stupidly expensive meme cutting boards"
Just buy a cheap bamboo cutting board like pictured. You can get them from under 5 bucks.
Plastic is for professional kitchens where they have to obey anal regulations (also more easily color coded).
End grain hardwood is to make a complete set with your carbon steel rust fast knives and tinned copper pans.
