Food and beverages are a big part of creating a cosy atmosphere and giving you that nice warm feeling. How do you guys achieve 'hygge'?
When I come home after a long day I get a big cup of hot water and dissolve 1 and a half tablespoons of honey in it. Maybe put a bit of jerky, nuts or sliced fruit etc in a small dish to go with it. Then sip the hot honey water while I watch a youtube video or lurk /ck/ for half an hour before I go to bed.
I like to turn the central heating up to full, gradually get naked and dunk my balls into a cup of cinnamon tea while shouting 'hygge nygge'. The sound of my balls sizzling for up to an hour afterwards really fosters a sense of relaxation and togetherness
Cutting up a dozen carrots cucumbers or apples can be a big pain in the ass. Do you use anything other than a mandolin board? I'm looking for easy to clean and durable over any fancy features.
I have a Bullet Express I was gifted. It's not bad, but it's such a kick in the nuts to clean, that I only pull it out when making food for parties.
The food processor portion of it sees a little more use. Mostly for making Hummus and Baba Ganoush
Holy shit what a way to start the year!
What do you think, /ck/?
I've been a vegan for about 2 years now. The past few months I've decided I wanted to gain some weight and bulk up. Beforehand, my diet had a big emphasis on rice/starchy vegetables, fruit, green veges, and a couple servings of legumes a day. I probably had 15% of my calories from fat in the form of nuts, seeds, and dark chocolate. Never worried about protein.
Since working out though, I've started counting my protein and have included a lot more protein rich sources. A lot more legumes, nuts, hemp, peanut butter, etc. All this fiber and fat has me seriously constipated, though. I drink a ton of water (clear urine every 2-3 hours) and eat every 3 hours or so. Switching to an easier to digest diet quickly makes me perform poorly in the gym, too.
How do I unconstipate myself?
It's bagel time!
I am making White Castle sliders for dinner tonight.
I made them about a month ago and everyone in the family really liked them. They were raving about how good the sliders were.
So I am going to make them for the second time tonight.
Usually I grill our burgers but its Wintertime in Michigan and we cant do any grilling in the winter which sucks.
Sometimes we use a cast iron flat top griddle to grill inside on the gas stove but it makes alot of smoke in the house. So I dont like to do it.
But if I flip over the griddle it has...

What's like the dankest thing I can get from Subway with a $10 gift card
So is Matcha tea actually good, or is it just one of the latest meme drinks?
The expensive ones taste nice, but the price doesn't make it suitable for everyday drinking. The cheap ones taste like garbage from my own experiences with it (I've been served stuff like pic related in tea stores)
>go to butcher
>ask for pork belly without skin, but with as much fat left as possible
>he does a terrible job and much of the top layer fat has been removed and skin is visible
Why? Surely of all people butchers should be able to do this job?
Next time I'll just get a whole pork belly and remove the skin myself
Isn't this the most depressing sandwich you've ever seen?
Plating leaves a bit to be desired, but everything tasted great.
Steak over a mushroom parmesan risotto, garlic rosemary roasted potatoes, and canadian bacon sauteed brussel sprouts.
I prefer a little more on the pink side. Still good though.
Anybody else love garlic stuffed olives?
So I got a little cabin that I go to, I normally bring hot dogs and ground beef for burgers. Want to try stocking it with freeze dried/powdered goods. For something easy I'm gonna try stocking it with the stuff to make Kraft Mac and Cheese, so I'd need a powdered cheese mix, powdered milk, and powered butter. They sell these big cans of it to survivalists and I was thinking of getting in on that.
What does /ck/ think? Worth while to start stocking up on this kind of stuff or am I insane?
with almost 500 reviews and 4.5 stars still on Amazon I would say go for it. Worst that happens is you don't like it. It's not like you can keep a stock of fresh fruit and vegetables without them going bad quickly and if it's a place you just visit once in a while you can't tend a garden or anything.
This is the same I think and has almost 500 reviews if you didn't see it
Please give me good potato recipes.
