It's remarkable, really, that with as prevalent as computers have become over the past 20 years, how many people are so truly, deeply ignorant on how to use them correctly.

    Fair assessment, although I've found it at least functional for my needs. It is different than MS Office, but for basic needs, it works.

    I made a Chocolate Truffle Cake Roll last week and it turned out really well. Fun to make, too. So this week I made Lemon Cream Rolled Cake. I should've listened to Betty - I used the whole batter to make the roll, and it cracked a little bit because it was too thick. Lesson learned. Delicious lesson. I'm still giving the cake away - it's not too bad, just not as pretty as it could've been (which is the story of my baking life, pretty much).

    In a funk making dinner for awhile. Mr les has very pedestrian tastes. Anyone have fairly healthy comfort food type dinners to suggest?

    I like the stuff at Emily Bites. Easy to make substitutions in most of her recipes for stuff you (or mr. les ) don't like or prefer the full-fat version, and I've liked pretty much everything I've tried. Good weeknight stuff - nothing too complicated or time-consuming. Are you on Pinterest?

    Ellie Krieger also has lots of good recipes - and you'd never know it was healthy.

    Oops forgot the mushrooms ...


    Tried one tonight. Only 2 of us, so I cut the recipe in half. (The cut in half recipe is below)

    Hamburger Stroganoff

    1/2 lb. Hamburger
    SMALL onion, diced (or half of one)
    1/2 cup mushrooms cut up into small chunks. (I use portabella)
    1 Tbsp. Worcestershire suace
    3/4 cup beef broth
    1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper
    1/4 cup flour
    1/2 cup sour cream
    egg noodles

    Cook egg noodles while the following is going on.

    Put beef, onions, and mushrooms in a pan and brown them; drain.
    Add W. sauce, cook for 1 minute.
    Add salt/pepper. coat with flour and stir for about 1 more minute.
    Add broth, stir until thick.
    Add sour cream; stir and cook until heated throughout.
    Serve over noodles.

    15 minutes start to finish.

    My very (bland food) picky wife loved it.

    Have a lot of stuff going on (hence the disinterest in cooking on my part).
    He has been cooking for us both lately. He has no problem doing this. It is all salt, cans, high fat etc. I like healthier foods. Not because they are healthier but because I like veggies, more Mediterranean type diet type stuff. I will try new things but have started to have some food intolerance issues which is making this more difficult. Hoping to be inspired.

    Thanks jen!

    Stress will cause food intolerances, I'm sure you know that though.

    yup. At this point stress is causing food (all inclusive) intolerance. Hopefully a resolution will occur soon

    Thanksgiving's coming up, and I think if I go the traditional turkey route, I will make Giada's turkey with herbs de provence and citrus. Worked well the last time I made it.

    The only reason I'm thinking traditional is we might have company this year....

    I made some quick and easy, healthier pasta the other day. Chicken sausage, sun dried tomatoes, kale, pasta and a small amount of light cream sauce. Not exactly healthy, but not as bad as fettuccine alfredo and yet more filling/satisfying.

    I could do that, too. Now I need a few sides...

    My Thanksgiving responsibilities -

    Pumpkin Caramel Swirl Cheesecake
    Chocolate cupcakes
    Carrot soufflé
    Mashed sweet potatoes

    Looking for a good carrot soufflé recipe. I had it at Busy Bee Café in Atlanta and theirs was amazing. I've wanted to make it ever since (but they don't share their recipe).

    Sage sausage stuffing (maybe dial it up with some homemade cornbread), mashed potatoes and dripping gravy (maybe dial it up and do something like twice baked or garlic mash or even something crazy with sweet potatoes), as for vegetables and other sides, I'll leave that to the more herbivore-centrics here.

    My dad has turkey day down to a science. He's just like me. He has the whole thing in a spreadsheet and has it timed out with his oven. And I'll be dammed if he doesn't always pull it off. Last year the turkey was done an hour early and it was still outrageously good

    Re: USCHO Cooks: Maybe We Can Beat Bobby Flay

    So I was at my brother's farm this past weekend and he cooked steak for dinner. Good steaks from Costco, prime cut and all, but the remarkable piece to this was his knife set. He laid out the steak knives without commenting on them, and they didn't look like much, just normal steak knives. Then I used the knife at my setting and the thing just glided through my steak like it was nothing. I sincerely couldn't believe it. It turned out to be the Miracle Blade III knife set, someone gave them to him for one reason or another, and he's been just as impressed with them as I was. So I just order a set for myself. It's tough to find good knives, and I'm really hoping that the rest of the set is as good as the steak knife I used. Online reviews actually look really positive, only warning to be careful because they're just so very sharp. This might actually get me to start cooking some more complex meals that need more cutting than the basic things I prepare now. I'll find out in a few days, at least.
