    Most people here probably know this already, but those cooking shows aren't necessarily what you think they are. Here's a link to some inside scoops on how they make the food look so good & secret ingredient shows.

    I saw some of that when Alton Brown did his behind the scenes episode of Good Eats.

    Also... those secrets are why Rachael Ray gets her food prepped and cooked in 30 minutes. It's easy when you have a magic stove.

    Found something to do with leftover steak

    Also, speaking of Giada, I'm revisiting her pasta recipes, because pasta is cheap, and a quick source of carbohydrate for marathon training season.

    I buy strip steak from Sam's Club, and it comes 4 to a pack. So after my dad and I eat 2 steaks, there are two leftover.

    I have a beef heart in the fridge; going to make a mushroom and spinach stuffed beef heart out of it. Served right next to mashed potatoes and gravy.

    As for the tongue I have... beef tongue tacos.

    Re: USCHO Cooks: Maybe We Can Beat Bobby Flay

    Starting to think about Christmas cookies. New festive flavors (and colors) I'm mulling: fig, buttered rum, chestnut, cherry or cranberry with pistachio, rice krispie trees (especially for the kids - maybe one tree per family), spumoni, sugarplums... also looking at traditional fruitcake, lebkuchen, speculoos and pfefferneuse. I have boxes of my grandmother's (and great grandmother's) old recipes, and I really wanted to find something fun in there... but I really don't remember her baking cookies. She cooked a ton, but not much baking. The grasshopper cookies I make are a nod to her, but because she made grasshoppers at Christmas, not because she baked anything like it.

    Does anybody have any good advice for cracking Black Walnuts? 2 years ago I ended up using a hammer but ended up with shards of shell mixed in with the walnuts. I bought a supposed black walnut cracker the year before, but it snapped cracking the first couple. Last year I didn't have to worry about it because there were no walnuts, but this year there is a pretty good crop again. Thanks for any help.

    If you're one to make pumpkin pies using canned pumpkin, you're going to want to buy your supplies early.

    NEOGA, Ill. (AP) — There should be enough pumpkins for Halloween this year, but that might not be the case for the canned pumpkin used in pies come Thanksgiving, according to crop experts in Illinois, the country’s top pumpkin-producing state.

    “I would not wait until Nov. 20,” University of Illinois professor Mohammad Babadoost said, referencing the Nov. 26 holiday. “I’d buy it whenever it comes to the store.”

    Large canned-pumpkin manufacturer Libby says yields could be off by as much as a third this year in Illinois, where about 90 percent of the pumpkins grown in the U.S. come from within a 90-mile radius of Peoria.

    Libby’s corporate and brand affairs director Roz O'Hearn said the company, which has had a central Illinois pumpkin-processing plant since 1929, is confident it will have enough pumpkin for autumn holidays.

    Ate the chef's tasting menu at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon. In foie gras coma. Ready to do battle with the would-be food police to protect my right to fatty duck liver as soon as I've slept this off.

    Re: USCHO Cooks: Maybe We Can Beat Bobby Flay

    Someone tell me if such a thing exists: I want software that catalogs the recipes in my cookbooks so I can search by ingredient and/or type. Basically, I want to digitally search my cookbooks without physically looking through them all. I have a feeling I'm going to have to do it myself.

    That really sounds like a chore you'd have to do yourself. The closest I could think of is a recipe site containing such a feature, but it's certainly going to be limited in scope to that site's listings.

    You might try a Google search for terms like "1 tsp cinnamon" to see if that returns results. There are some obvious restrictions in utility on that search, though, as you'd almost certainly be required to include both the ingredient and measurement as looking up a term as simple as "cinnamon" could take you all over the place, from bug repellents to cooking to song titles to adult sites with performers who've taken on that moniker.

    Ask and ye shall receive: http://www.eatyourbooks.com/

    This is just about perfect. They index cookbooks, and while it doesn't list every single ingredient for each recipe, it lists the major ones (I'm never going to search for 'salt' or 'flour'.) I don't need the actual recipe with all the directions - since I own the book. I don't need it to be mobile, either. Take my money immediately.

    edit: and I can import my cookbooks from Goodreads. Wow.

    edit2: I think I'm in love with this software. Just searched for "pumpkin" - so many recipes I hadn't marked or remembered. This is exactly what I wanted.

    Wow. I remember him from my favorite show of all time, Iron Chef. He was called the "god" of French Cuisine. That must have been above amazing.

    Ever thought about creating an Access (or even Excel*) database? I did this starting with a template I found online. Pretty cool now. Takes a bit of time up front but it's also free.



    *Yes, I understand Excel isn't a native DB application
