My husband is a picky eater and when I think about it thoroughly, I don’t feel attracted to him anymore. I feel like he is missing out on a lot of things and because I love him, I tolerate that part of him. What is annoying is how he doesn’t want or try to blend into society & be normal and polite. Today, I surprised him with making chicken tenders with coconut oil & sweet potato fries & pasta baked to encourage him to eat healthier & stay in his comfort zone. When I surprised him, he didn’t even seem excited. He was all “oh What is this???” And I said “your favorite meal!!!” And he said “oh uh okay, I’m not that hungry” and I said “try itttt” and he got a plate of chicken tenders and fries & said “why is there paprika on it” and “why are the fries orange” and that got me annoyed. I’m going to say this but why did I marry a 6 year old??? I explained to him that I want him to be slightly out of his comfort zone by trying my food I have worked hard on. He took one or... keep reading on reddit ➡
It’s not like dry pasta is unambiguously worse than fresh pasta just cause it’s less expensive. Dry pasta is good for some dishes while fresh pasta is more suitable for others. I seriously don’t get this “dichotomy”. Just stop it, folks.
I only did a little bit of searching to see if anyone else has mentioned this. If so, sorry.
We do pasta bakes sometimes and it's tricky to reheat the leftovers without them getting dry. The best I can do is to keep it in a solid chunk and put it in a bowl that's small enough that it doesn't touch the very bottom. Then I pour a 1/2oz splash of water in it to help rehydrate it. Then just do the typical 30 second intervals while stirring.
Hopefully you like these results a bit more!
So I tries making it three times. I specifically tied using this recipe with half semolina and half 00 flour. I add a little cold water too,but the dough never seemed soft and smooth even after kneaded the dough for 20 minutes on the third try. The dough seemed hard for me to knead and it had little tears and cracks and did not seem smooth like what I dee on these pasta making videos. I kept on kneading and knead for about 20 minutes and throughout this entire process the dough would never really spring back when I made an indentation on it. It also seems to stick very slightly to my cutting board which is weird since that is an indication of wetness, yet if also seemed to dry at the same time. Anyway, here is a picture of the pasta dough on my third try after kneading it for ten minutes, and here is the picture of the same dough after kneading it for [20+ minutes](htt... keep reading on reddit ➡
Here’s a 10yr+ favorite that I make even when I’m flush: The base: Cook a couple packs of barilla protein+ spaghetti, Drain it and put back in the hot pot Crack a couple eggs in there and whip it all around so you have coated the pasta Lots of black pepper
Rich man additions: Sausage Beef Parmesan Any leftover veggies that need cooking
It’s so filling and so cheap and pretty darn good

Edit - this is not a Rick Roll I promise
Edit 2 - if you guys want any copy pasta added, comment the pasta and I will add it but it has to be a saucy 🍽 Pasta 🍝 not a bland 🤢 Pasta 🍝
I am not very good at balance the quantity of food needed
I'd love to hear from Italians, but also everyone else.
So last week I was making pasta and watching tv and my wife got my attention saying “hey your water is about to boil, do you have the pasta ready?” I snapped out of the TV trance and said thank you for keeping an eye on it and I made the pasta. I didn’t really think much of it, just thought she was being helpful while I was distracted.
However, tonight we are visiting her parents. And a couple minutes ago, I watched her mother pour out a full pot of boiling water twice (!!) because she “missed her chance to put the rice in because the water was already boiling for a bit” while she was turned around. I was really confused.
I pulled my wife aside and asked her quietly about what I just witnessed. She explained that the steam released some of the water (yes I know basic science) so now she didn’t know how much water was left in the pot and it might not be enough for the rice.
I was stunned. We were all in the kitchen for this whole event. The water wasn’t boiling for 10 seconds, MAY... keep reading on reddit ➡
I wanted to share a recipe for an easy and super delicious midweek meal that I make regularly. It is heavily inspired by this video by NOT ANOTHER COOKING SHOW although I'd like to present this basic dish as something you can build on and alter to your liking.
Any canned tomato (peeled, crushed, cherry)
2: Finely slice however many cloves of garlic you want (I like 4) and add to the oil.
Turn on the stove on a low heat and let the garlic and infuse into the oil. Approximately 5 minutes.
Time to add the canned tomatoes. Regardless of if your tomatoes are whole/chopped, you want to get a potato masher (or any other kitchen implement, get creative!) and crush them down even more in the pan so that the juice is released from the tomatoes.
Boil some water and cook your pa
My eyes sees the dish before me, and is happy. Yay spaghetti! Then I take a bite. It's nice. The sauce is flavorful & and the squash is yummy... But it feels... wrong. I keep expecting a big bite of pasta, some delicious starchy noodles, but that never comes. Every bite becomes one of sadness, my taste buds yearn for what the dish could be.
I don't like this. Spaghetti squash is a wonderful ingredient, and should be put in dishes that are made for it.
On that note, anybody have a good recipe for spaghetti squash that doesn't try to masquerade as spaghetti?

My daughter picked this out of her bowl and kept right on eating. She didn't even mention it until I noticed a random nut on the table.
Would I justified in asking for a refund on the meal? I don't usually like to complain, but this seems significant.
My mother used to complain when I would take empty pasta jars out of the recycle bin and keep them in our cupboard, same with glass bottles. Whenever I find a use for them, I tease her about it because whatever tupperware/Pyrex she has, isn't useful in the moment.
Some example of what I use these jars for are:
-Keeping my brown sugar fresh. Ever since I started storing brown sugar in a jar (pasta sauce jars are airtight), I havent had any issues with it hardening (been a few months now). Same works with white sugar.
-When I used to commute to school/work I would make overnight oats and prep/store them in either Stonewall Kitchen or Bonne Maman jars. Perfect size.
-Costco is the only place I've seen large Bonne Maman jars. I would use those jars to store my salad for lunch. I kid you not, those jars could hold a large kale salad if you squish it in enough. Just be sure to toss the salad beforehand.
-I would keep jam jars and store my own homemade jam in them
-I used to work at a... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have recently started back to keto after having twins a couple months ago and then 9 weeks in the NICU. I wasnt allowed to go full keto and I was so sick that my dietician said I had to forgo keto in my pregnancy.
So getting back to keto and IF has been glorious. I made some spaghetti bolognese for my family and decided to try shredded cabbage as my pasta sub and its amazing! Still has enough texture and bite. And its delicious! Almost like cabbage rolls but completely different. Im trying to do without any packaged substitutes this time and focus on more vegetables as subs. It would even make a good noodle sub... thats my next venture. Im sure everyone has already tried this but I felt like I had a genius moment. I WILL get to my goal weight! KCKO.
This is an ongoing dispute between me and my partner, who is not from the UK. His local chip shop sells pasta as an option. I strongly object to this being available. What's the point in going to a chippy, and not buying chips?!
