So are these air poppers the best way to make popcorn?

I use a Presto Microwave Popper.
1/3 cup of kernels
2 minutes on high
Shake of Cajun Seasoning or Old Bay and you're good to go.
how does this board not have a


macro yet?
fuck's a macro, fag
so do you just plan to never clean your popcorn popper device?

what always confused me was why certain foods that originate from a certain country or culture end up being commonplace in a completely different one? for instance the sausage as we know it today was invented in the greek and roman civilizations but now the country with the most types of sausages are germany (i know there are plenty of salt cured salamis in italy and there is louganica sausage in greece, but sausages in these countries is are not as commonplace in their cuisine as much as it is in the cuisine of, say, germany, france or switzerland

another example is spaghetti and meatballs, which was originally a popular recipe in 1800s italy but now generally only the US consumes this dish.

preserving meat in intestinal tubes is an idea as old as time itself and arose independently in every culture composed of humans that aren't mentally subnormal. (sorry africa!)
>You didn't find the dish as it is now in Italy back then
Yeah, but if it was invented by italians, that probably means they WOULD HAVE if they'd had the amount of meat we throw around back in the mother country.

Not really making a point, just interesting to think about.
Pasta != noodles.
There are no noodles in China natively made from semolina. Semolina noodles originated in India or Persia. These people, however, ate them as a sweet, parcooked either boiled in water or steamed and finished in syrup flavoured with rose and spices. During the Muslim conquest of Persia, the Arabs discovered pasta and used it in other applications, including savoury ones. They took pasta westward and introduced it to the Imazighen people (Berbers) of North Africa. The now-Arabised Moors, during their invasion of Southern Italy, beginning with the conquest of Sicily in the early 800s, brought pasta with them. From there, pasta spread and became more and more commonplace throughout the peninsula.
It should be noted that while Indians, Persians, Arabs and Berbers continue to eat pasta, they developed very few preparations of it, number fewer than a dozen or so. Italy has literally hundreds of varieties of pasta and pasta-based dishes or even thousands if pasta shapes are taken into account.

Also, neither potatoes or tomatoes are native to the United States.
>i meant the americas
No you didn't.

Tomato sauce was borrowed from the Spaniards who were themselves inspired by the foods they encountered among the natives of what is now Mexico. IINM, Neapolitans have been eating tomato sauces since the 1500s.

What are you guys allergic to? What about your significant other? How do you manage?

Gotta take the bad with the good. Despite how much more toxic our work is becoming, human health and quality of lifestyle are for the most part improving. On the whole, we're still way better off today in those regards than we were at any earlier point in history.

As to OPs question, wife has an intolerance to red food dye. She's actually fine with the natural stuff (made from bugs and such), but reacts to the artificial stuff.

A lot of stuff has artificial coloring in it, which makes grocery shopping a bit of a pain. We end up buying a lot more of the hippy organic shit, because while I don't buy into most of the value proposition, they do indeed tend to skip the artificial coloring that seem to get thrown into just about everything else.
I walk past you wearing cologne or perfume and get a seizure. I walk past dryer vents and get seizures. People who use dryer sheets get near me and I get seizures.

It's really not complicated. I live where poppies grow and connected the dots to passing by them and getting severely agitated and blacking out while going to the store. Seizures came years later, but the connection and reaction are the same, deja vu every time I get near it, takes me back to those extremely fucking irritable summers.
Guess I'll order a real allergy test soon if I can make it out, obviously can't get a license until the seizures stop.

Husband usually doesn't eat most of the items listed but when he does it doesn't bother me much except when it's shell fish and peaches the vapors from them being cooked causes reactions.
Most days he just eats them when I'm not around for most the day

But why not greentext the story right afterward? What you posted is a vague shadow of a story. Do you really need someone to ask you to elaborate before you tell the story properly? What were you at the tail-end of Happy Hour or something and they didn't want to discount your drink?
Not picky so I'll usually deal with shit depending on the price. But I lost my shit in New Orleans after drinking a bit and ordered a jambalaya. It was like 17 bucks but the restaurant looked nice. It was uncooked frozen shrimp poured over some rice with ragu vegetable pasta sauce. No extra seasoning. I would have probably been okay if it had been cooked and some general Cajun seasoning but that was shit

Why aren't pretzel buns the default bun type for burgers yet?
10 replies omitted. Click here to view.

they're always too small for the burger and create a weird issue where you have trouble taking a bite without something falling off. a hamburger bun shouldn't be hard.
>I live in flyoverville
Pretzelbuns were a massive trend 5 years ago. They are different but definitely not better
because they are disgusting?
brioche is absolute shit as well as pretzel.
if you want a good bun buy them from fuddruckers. they are the only burger place that makes the bun correctly

You either have to be under the age of 10 or a complete manchild to choose ketchup. Ketchup is for people who haven't developed the clearly superior palate that mustard complements. Tangy, complex and wholesome; Mustard is the number one choice of condiment.
Ketchup is for babies playing with dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets and wiping their snot on their pants. Mustard is for professionals.

Idk if they're the same in the US, but here the chip itself is pretty sweet and it goes really well with the (overly) salty topping.
yo kettle brand is probably the best chip
Again, I seem to like any chip made with same/similar techniques. I even like Miss Vickie's.
it's some kind of mind-altering drug I'm sure. Shit's incredible. Kettle-style is the actual best thing. Try out Kettle's pepper chips. They're fucking 11/10

It's a guac maker. You cut a hole in the avocado, insert the wedge end, then hold the handle between your palms and quickly rub them together back and forth around the handle to spin the wedge. In 30 seconds or so you have delicious guacamole with no mess. Wala!

Fellow celiac fag here since '08.

You get used it. You can still have plenty of delicious food. However, when I see someone eating donuts or croissants I get a little jealous. It would also be nice to have some good onion rings.

However, the silver lining in this is that it forces you to clean up your diet so you end up choosing healthier options out of necessity. No big deal.

Colitis sufferer here too.
I've had a flare up that's lasted like 2 months now and a doctor visit scheduled for Tuesday where I'm gonna be prescribed Prednisone cause my Lialda and Canasa(suppository) aren't helping.
So best case I just have a lowered immune system for however long I have to take that shit and worst I puff up and gain a bunch of weight because it's a medicine they also use to treat some cancers.
I'm kinda scared
You should look into helminthic therapy (basically infecting yourself with a dozen or so hookworms -- they sip less than a teaspoon of blood a day, and they can't increase number inside the body because the eggs have to incubate in soil).

It's already in phase 3 clinical trial.
I've been given prednisone lots of times for severe eczema. I've never taken it for more than 2 weeks at a time, and they usually start you off on a high dose and taper the dose down to 1 pill at the end. It makes me feel really good at first, like minor aches and pains dissipate and I have energy, and when the dose is lowered I turn into an real asshole. I've never had any of the scary side effects but the mood swings are legit.

>As someone who has actually done steaks on a foreman before when his grill ran out propane and actually liked how the results came out...

Never do this again, sweet jesus man... at least let them dry.
It was okay. I left it on one side for too long and bits of it got an almost-burnt sear, and I opted for one that had more marbling in it but because it was so thin I ended up eating just a bunch of buttery-smooth fat. Which isnt so bad I guess.
Only paid $3 so fuck it
