What kind of blender do you use/recommend?
I have some kitchen-aid bullshit and it keeps getting stuck or creates air pockets or something and stops blending while blending frozen fruit ffs.
I bought a $14 Hamilton Beach single serve blender that does what I want to do. I don't blend too often and am a bachelor, so its fine.
My brother has the magic bullet system. Every store seems to have it 1/4 off during this time of year, so if you blend often, I see the systems for 80-120 depending on which system. He seems to think it does a really good job.
I'm going on a road trip after Christmas and aim to take in as much of the East Coast as I can.
Any stand out restaurants or bars I should visit?
Also what sort of regional cuisine is good?
There are lots of great quality restaurants on the east coast of Australia. I recommend the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant in Melbourne, the Waterview Restaurant in Sydney, and the Alchemy Restaurant & Bar in Brisbane.
Good luck and drive safe!
A few days ago I saw the best cooking advice I've ever read on /ck/ and think it deserves a thread of its own
Here's what you're gonna do OP. Listen carefully because this is very important advice. Lots of people think cooking is all about complicated recipes, big cookbooks and arduous effort. Really it's more of an innate thing.
Learning to cook is much more simple, so pay close attention to what I'm going to say. Are you listening?
Fry an egg and experiment with various seasoning. This will give you an idea of what flavours go well...

I think there's already a troll thread for this up. Maybe wait a day until it 404s or is deleted. Might catch some Christmas fish, anon. Too much bait in the water for now though. A carbonara thread might rustle someone though.
A few weeks ago I posted my recipe for Rock-Bottom liquor. It was pretty much just water, canned pineapple, bread for yeast, and corn sugar to add extra alcohol. Anyways, it's done now and it tastes like hard Pineapple juice. I'm not dead but I might as well be after I finish a few bottles of this stuff. I don't owe you fuckers a thing but I figured you should know that it's legal and doable to brew up your own liquor in a tight spot (depending on where you live).
>immediately regret buying them, throw the rest out because I never want to eat sweets again
does this happen to anyone else. fuck, why didn't I buy something savory
Buy parsley to make a pesto
Buy lettuce to make a salad
Buy a potato to bake it
Buy avacado to put on sandwiches
They go bad before i motivate myself to use them and i routinely throw them out
This is why i stick to buying pre-made and pre portioned crap
Look for "quotes over cupcakes" on facebook for more.
Has Japan gone too far? Can they ever be stopped?
Are you going to get this?
It's my first time cooking Christmas dinner. Will glazing my veg clash with the gravy? What are the best ways to add flavor?
Thanks but there are sometimes things which sound worse than they taste and vice versa. Hence I want to know which are likely to clash with gravy made from turkey trimmings and chicken stock.
Acids will clash. Avoid citrus when pairing with heavy things like gravy. Yes, it cuts it, but not in a tasteful way. For vegetables stick with simple things like a dash of olive oil, salt and pepper.
how do I not fuck up homemade eggnog?
I tried making some last week and the eggs cooked into scrambled eggs. still ate it but it sure wasn't eggnog

What is your secret snack you don't tell anyone about, /ck/?
Sardine in olive oil with some slice bread. Top the sardine on the bread with a little sprinkle of salt and pepper.
And once you finish the sardine, comes the best part. The left over olive oil to sopped up with the bread.
I wish I was not such a picky eater. I feel like I'm missing out on so much in life. Any other picky eaters here on /ck/? Come and join the /peg/ thread.
>tfw chicken tendies and french fries
Whenever somebody puts a plate of food in front of you that you think you dont like, just eat as much as you can and do your best, but really try to.
Whenever you go to a quality restaurant order something on the fringes of what you think you like, push the boat out a little bit. This really helped me a lot, having something you're not used to done really really well can help change your mind.
At least it did for me, I used to be extremely picky, but the first step was to stop thinking of myself as a picky eater and the second step was just to munch some stuff...

With the Loonie tanking thanks to le weed man I was wondering what are some quality frostback goods to order online? And what is the difference in contents between these two bottles?
Thanks in advance.
Does this look like a healthy meal to you?
Well tell us what it is first. Chicken/turkey is fine, veggies look fine, brown rice is meh, rather have bread but nothing wrong with it
Yeah no maybe I guess I don't know can you repeat the question
More importantly, is this healthy meal tasty? No, that bland pile is not tasty. Toss those veggies with smoked paprika. There should be a big chunk of lemon next to that chicken. Mix in an aromatic spice like cumin seed into that rice.
