Feb 20th 2009 1:53PM I put toasted pine nuts on just about everything these days. But the best is toasted with a teeeensy bit of cayenne pepper and then sprinkled over some angel hair pasta with pesto and some dried proscuitto crumbled on top. Maybe a little myzythra cheese grated on there as well. Oh god I am getting hungrier by the minute.

Honestly, do we really need a detailed run down of you buying something? The internet is so inane sometimes.
Jul 1st 2008 1:12PM Out of all my Geek friends, I'm the only one who really cooks seriously (save one or two who like to treat themselves now and again). Most of my friends go out to eat or were raised on frozen food (dorm food, too). So I like to have people over for elaborate, multi-course dishes. Usually I turn to the French Laundry Cookbook or a recipe from my childhood, typically french/italian bistro fare. Weekly staples for me are a nice roast chicken, marinated steak with balsalmic glaze, artichokes with home made mayo to dip and caprese salad. Often times I'll become obsessed with one particular method, doing it over and over again until I get it right. In college it was bread, and now it's mayo. I love the process and the varied flavors you can accomplish with the right additives. And after you whisk so hard your arm falls off, you feel pretty accomplished. :)

Mar 19th 2008 4:05PM My grandmother probably wouldn't be able to identify fois gras or sweetbreads or tripe or anything fancy as food either. That's not a very good rule. While I appreciate turning people off of processed stuff, my grandmother isn't the best source to look to for food advice.
