    Welcome to the forum. Vacationed in Maine ( Sebago Lake) for many summers with my family. My kids are now grown and moved out, so I had to learn how to cook for 2 instead of 4. Takes time to learn how to downsize, especially when used to cooking specific recipes for so long. Some I can...

    Petty Vents

    I hear ya. I remember going to my kids parent teacher night ( years ago, my kids are in their 20's now). I remember being at least 10 - 15 years older than their teachers. I also remember one of them giving me text book, rehearsed advice on why my kid wasn't paying attention in class. She...

    Petty Vents

    Do you trust Indian restaurants for cleanliness?

    When cooking for guests I'm usually more careful, but if its just me and my wife, I break a lot of the double dipping rules, and boy, do I get yelled at when I lick mu chefs knife and claim that it is clean. Not to mention the risk of severing my tongue.

    Black beans and Sweet potato, great combo

    Yes I used corn husks. I made 1/2 a recipe and it made probably like 10 - 15. I must say, I ate some leftover ones today. They are even better day 2. The inner stuffing flavor leaches out into the surrounding masa . I'd Probably add a little corn to the filling just for textural purpose...

    Black beans and Sweet potato, great combo

    The final result was equally as good. The ratio was about 50/50 black beans to sweet potato. The sweet potato was diced on the smaller side, too it kinda blended in with the beans ( not like you were getting a big chunk of sweet potato). I used homegrown sweet potatoes, so they. likely weren't...
