Food Thread: We Are Never Too Old To Try New Things; Especially When It Comes To Cocktails!

martinez.jpg

That is a Martinez, a classic cocktail that is coming back into favor. Well, actually I have no idea if that is true, but I am drinking the hell out of them and am a very happy camper.

Its base is nothing more than a martini with red vermouth, but the addition of a bit of sweet liquor and some bitters adds a complexity that is really pleasant. I am not a big fan of red vermouth, and use it only in cocktails. I cannot imagine drinking it straight or on the rocks or whatever unpleasant concoctions bartenders have devised to get rid of their spoiled vermouth.

It's nothing like a martini, which I think depends on mouth feel; the crisp, cold feel of the icy gin. This is a more complex drink, and one that I recommend to those looking for something a bit out of the ordinary. The link goes to a good place to start, although I have increased the gin in my recipe.

By the way, do not neglect the twist; they are vital to some drinks, and this is absolutely one of those that benefit from a large twist of fresh lemon, hopefully with lots of essential oils.

******

I have been having a few discussions with commenters and lurkers about temperature, and how vital it is to be aware of it. I see it as another ingredient in my food, and it should be measured as carefully as the salt or the pepper or the baking powder or the maple syrup.

Obviously the best way to do that is with an accurate thermometer, whether you use an instant read one or a probe thermometer with an alarm. But even if you don't have those tools, just feeling how hot your pans are will provide some good information. I am not suggesting that you smack your hand down in the middle of your blazing hot cast-iron pan to check the temp before you sear a steak, but having some sense of how much heat is radiating from the surface is a useful bit of data.

I use an infrared thermometer for pans and for checking the temperature of big pots of water and the oil when I am frying. It's convenient and quick and gives some accurate temperatures.

infrared therm.jpg

Once you get a sense of temperature those settings on your burners will be much more useful. I know it sounds simplistic, but I use that thermometer all of the time, even when I am making scrambled eggs. It's another way of learning more about that vital ingredient (heat) and how it improves the food. And it helps timing too. For instance, I know that when I am making a large batch of caramelized onions that as they get closer to 212 degrees they will cook much more quickly. All of the water in them is keeping them from browning, but as soon as it evaporates they are off to the races!

******

There really isn't much good cooking information available for people who cook for one and who aren't interested in learning how to modify recipes. And I get it! As much as I think that food and cooking are vitally important things, some people just want to eat three meals each day and not worry too much about it. Which is a long-winded way of pointing out that while Chef John might have the most irritating voice in the western hemisphere, his recipes are always pretty good, and this one looks pretty tasty!

******

chococookkie.jpg

This recipe for Brown Butter Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chunk Cookies isn't anything out of the ordinary, but it piqued my interest because it illustrates (illuminates?) how easily the basic chocolate chip cookie recipe can be modified to include some fun flavors. Brown butter is wonderful, and bourbon is wonderful, and pecans are not wonderful in cookies! What were they thinking? I am unalterably opposed to nuts in any kind of chocolate chip cookie, and I will fight you on this!

******

I have linked to AmazingRibs in the past, and every time I poke around there I am struck by how seriously he takes cooking, but also how much fun he has. And isn't that the key to managing the undeniable fact that we will be cooking, or paying someone to do it for us for the rest of our lives?

Anyway, here is a recipe for some Crispy Grilled Buffalo Wings that look pretty good. And easy. And a lot less messy than frying those wings.

Well, here is a fine example of people with more money than brains.

Water. It comes from the tap. And if you don't like the taste, buy a water filter for the stuff you drink. But no, that's not hip enough for some, so they buy adulterated water because...uh...why? Water tastes fine. Just drink it when you are thirsty and don't worry so much about it, and definitely don't buy into the nonsense about it.

16 I made the best steaks I have ever made last night. Pulled them out 4 hours before dinner time and put salt on both sides and let them sit. Did the reverse sear thing until they got to 130 degrees and put them on the coals for 1 minute per side then let them rest for five minutes.

Absolutely the best steak I have ever cooked. Juicy and the best tasting steak I have ever had. Did not need a knife to cut them. Boneless rib eyes from Sam's.

29 Since I downsized I no longer have a grill. So I've been frying my steaks in super hot cast iron.

I had two tenderloin steaks, about 2 1/2 inches thick and let them come to room temperature drying them with paper towels after flipping them over a couple times. Then I gave them some truffle and rosemary salt and a little extra truffle.

3 1/2 minutes per side. Covered, removed from burner and let them sit while I finished the crab cakes and hollandaise. We had an avocado Cesar salad and I made some mashed potatoes for the boy.

He literally licked his plate and ate all the food.

Oh, and a nice Cabernet Sauvignon from the Colombia valley. Browne vineyards.

30 So, Hmart had the marinated bulgogi beef and the marinated chicken thighs on great sales. So, heat decided today's dinner.

The chicken makes for a great crockpot stew, so that's where Korea meets America goes today. Since the chicken marinade has a fruitier, less earthy tone, I enjoy pairing it with great on-sale fruits and veg that skew to the sweeter side.

Today, they had calabaza squash on sale for under $1/lb already peeled, cut, and diced (so I got 1.7 lbs). And I had my own pre-diced 1/4 of a fresh pineapple left.

So, both went into the crockpot on low for 4-5 hours with almost 3lbs of the marinated chicken, 1/2 bag of diced in half baby carrots, 2 vidalia onions, and 2 stalks of celery (with a cornstarch slurry and s&p an hour ago). 3lbs of chicken means I SHOULD get a shot at seconds today. We're again putting it on white rice with red grapes on the side. Spouse has already declared the flavor "scrumptious."

If you're not living in the 20s when the liquor came out of an old oildrum and got filtered through a sock, I'm not sure I understand the point. There was like ten years when cocktails made sense, yet they still persist.

Speaking of eggs, I had to settle for "cage free" brown eggs. I really don't care much about the welfare of fucking chickens. Smack 'em around a bit, if you have to.

And my buddy and I stopped at an A&W drive-thru last night, because, hungry. I normally avoid them because they promote those disgusting Frankenmeat burgers, and also eggs from "hens fed a natural vegetarian diet". Fuuuuck!

55 I cooked a pot roast in the slow cooker last night with taters, carrots and onions. Tonight, the leftovers will be made into hash, fried up in my skillet.

Also, just got back from the supermarket where I bought a 6 rib standing rib roast... actually a 3 rib, a 2 rib and single rib and had them cut into steaks. Of course I kept the cut off bones. They will make excellent beef ribs. It was "on sale" for $10.98/pound. Six months ago, the sale price was $7.98/pound. But I did save almost 60 bucks off the regular price.

Since it's just me and the wife, cutting them into thick steaks yields two meals for each of us per steak, because we can't eat a whole steak in one sitting.

I agree (even if I'm stuck with vegan butter nowadays) - bacon, runny scrambled eggs, and a full fat toast with some berries on the side and coffee is the Mother's Day brunch of champions (although this year, I asked for the belgian waffle maker to be used to make me fresh belgian waffles with a homemade fresh berry sauce and bacon, b/c I don't want to put the work in myself, and the only way for me to get awesome allergy friendly belgian waffles is to do it myself or get my daughters to do it)...

What's hard is cooking good food in a short amount of time.

"Pluto water", which had a sulfur stench to it, as well as magnesium and sodium sulfate. Supposedly would relieve constipation within an hour or two.

Lithiated water was also popular. 7-Up got its start as a lithium-containing patent medicine (as did many other soft drinks). Interestingly, areas with high lithium content in the ground water tend to have very low suicide rates, and of course lithium is used as a psychiatric medicine.

92 My favorite method for wings is a dual method.

Fry them until crispy, then, to sauce them, build a sauce in a wok over med-high heat and toss the wings in the sauce in the wok while over heat.

If you love crispy wings, but hate the sauce destroying the texture, this gives you a well sauce wing that maintains the crispness.

Now, that I always have to scratch my bechamel (to be dairy free), I ALWAYS use the no bake noodles. And it turns out spectacular (although unlike my mashed potatoes, you can tell this has no cheese, so the kids and spouse add mozzarella and parm to the end product sprinkled on top, and declare it better than the "dairy version" I used to make b/c they discovered they hate ricotta and they like it "very wet" - who knew?...

164 144 Nurse, speaking of chives my chives are already a foot high and blooming. Those suckers grow like crazy. I need some recipes with chives. Love them on eggs, in a salad, on a baked potato but after that I draw a blank.
Posted by: Jewells45 at May 02, 2021 04:20 PM (nxdel)

I have the same chives. Not a recipe, but my Oma taught me to get a nice white wine vinegar (or even white vinegar if you like it strong), an olive oil, and an acre of chopped chives all mixed up and to put that on top of salted ripe red tomato slices and call it salad. SO GOOD!

170 Found a brand of zero carb mixer. Made with monk fruit. Swoon Mixers. I saw margarita and ginger lime, and picked up the ginger lime. It is recommended for mules.

Imma give it a thumbs up. It costs about $10 at Giant where I got it. For 25 oz and their recipe is 4 oz per drink. So 1.30 in mixer per drink. Not terrible I guess.

To be honest, I'm not really a fan of real maple syrup. Maybe my dissolute youth spent pouring bottles of Mrs. Butterworth's over stacks of pancakes or challah french toast is the reason, but I find the real stuff too...runny.

It was great, Nurse. The band was three other musical-type buddies whom I've known and played with for decades yet we had never played in that configuration before. "And on drums, Mark, our harmonica player..." First time I've played my bass since March of last year.

The little hole-in-the-wall local bar was a local place over on the coast. I didn't see one single person wearing an ID10T mask all night long. That was nice to (not) see.

Everyone extended their condolences, which was really nice of them. I know B'Gal would've been the first one to say, "Go. Play."

Nope, it's Math - VA has 2 blue senators. Nova is uber-blue (I call it fed blue, which is different from normal blue areas). Make Nova a new state and they get 2 blue senators. Then, within 3-5 years, the other 2 VA senators, who now get no Nova votes, go red.

Thus, Nova becomes a state and VA eventually gets 2 red senators. It's just playing the "long" game...

Nice to know because at some point in the future when covid panic goes away we are driving to Austin to go to Franklin BBQ and we will have to try that out.

Never mind, just checked out their website.....mask required until the end of time, even after covid is gone and they only do breakfast sat and sun with reservations required. I spent enough time during 22 years in the Military standing in line to eat.

253 I grew up po so I actually prefer Log Cabin to real maple syrup.

I’m a fan of Log Cabin, too, when I’m not using runny maple. I even use it instead of straight corn syrup to make caramel corn sometimes.

As far as I can tell, Log Cabin is the only major breakfast syrup that doesn’t use high fructose corn syrup. It uses corn syrup, but the regular kind more easily used in home baking.

Overcooked - crumble and rehydrate

Too dry - soak with liqueur or sweetened syrup

290 mint julep martinis are the best martinis... anyone who says different simply either hasn't tried them, or they are a nrkulturny barbarian who should be cast out from human society

good vodka from the freezer, fresh mint, simple syrup and ice cubes.

mint in shaker to taste, add ice, 2 shots of vodka and anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon of simple syrup per serving (if you add the syrup "FIRST!" it will stick to the ice) shake vigorously, then strain into glass of choice.

Great for summer festivities. pro tip: if you don't strain it, you wind up with bits and pieces of mint in the glass, which are NOT a plus, IMHO.

And my buddy and I stopped at an A&W drive-thru last night, because, hungry. I normally avoid them because they promote those disgusting Frankenmeat burgers, and also eggs from "hens fed a natural vegetarian diet". Fuuuuck! Chickens are born hunters; they eat bugs and worms whenever they get the opportunity.

358 Today we had our church luncheon. We have it the first Sunday of the month which is communion Sunday. No jello in sight. We made some vegetable and pasta and cheese thing in the crock pot. Somebody brought homemade moussaka which was great. There was also macaroni and cheese. Another person brought delicious homemade cookies and we had salad with all kinds of fixings. We also had a small chocolate cake with chocolate pudding inside and a whipped cream frosting because it was our organist's 94th birthday.

So if you're ever in central Jersey the first Sunday of the month (we don't do the luncheons in July and August) and want to visit our church and have a nice luncheon afterwards, please stop on in. We have enough food for twice the people so there are always leftovers.

377 A juror in the Derek Chauvin trial hid that he was a Black Lives Matter activist to convince the judge that he was impartial.
Juror #52, now identified as Brandon Mitchell, is also encouraging people to try to get on juries to spark some change.

During jury selection, Mitchell claimed that he had very little knowledge of the case. However, Mitchell was photographed last August wearing a shirt that read Get your knee off our necks and BLM.

389 Sweet Baby Gerghins: It is a fucking NEGRONI when you do gin, sweet vermouth and bitters.

It is not a martini, it is a different thing. We get that. As soon as you mix in sweet vermouth, it is definitely NOT a martini.
