Okay, flipping an omelette might not seem like a huge achievement. But for someone who can't really cook, someone who managed to burn rice/make soggy rice in a rice cooker (ask anyone, cooking rice in a rice cooker is supposed to be "idiot-proof", guess they didn't test it against this idiot....)
And for the longest time, I've been trying to make an omelette with the works, and every time I tried flipping it over, I'd end up with eggs dripping everywhere.
But today, I managed to do it, flipped the omelette properly, as a whole round disc. And I'm feeling ridiculously proud of it.
Life has been a bit rough lately. I'd take whatever little achievement I can nowadays.
Just wanted to share this little bit of happiness with ya all. :)
Guess this post kind of went off on its own. Thank you all for all the kind words and awards! I am most humbled that my amateur cooking attempt bring a smile to your day.

Does anyone have good suggestions on where to start on products that are affordable and dependable? And yes, I’m aware of the need for ventilation to reduce CM. For the small stove, it’s really just something to cook either canned goods or small meals. Huge bonus if it can be used for hiking. Also, what are 1-2 pieces power outage gear is useful, that can even help with future outage when hot or cold weather ? I wanna cover all my bases without overspending and cramping up my limited storage space (studio)
As a fairly beginner prepper, I thank you for whatever knowledge you have to give me 👍🏻
Edit: if not generators then just battery storage
I can't believe I'm even typing this. But it seems I've had a rash of electric range failures, and I was just mystified because what could be more simple than a dial and a burner?
So I asked my maintenance guys what is going on, and they said Tenants are using them for heat (with space heaters) rather than buy heating oil in the winter.
Which suddenly makes sense how I'm getting wiring harnesses burned up and holes burned through the steel range tops. All 4 burners on full plus the oven, and the just stove overheats and burns itself up.
So what can I do to prevent these idiots from burning up my stoves?
I'm about to update my lease to state that I do not maintain nor replace electric ranges. At least then the tenant has some skin in the stove game.
But like seriously. WTF. Is there some other way to make these idiots use the heating system that has been provided rather than create fire risks with space heaters overloading the old wiring and destroying the stove?
While cleaning the food bins today, I found a bag of black beans I didn't know I had and didn't see on the last cleaning. I am so stoked! I get black beans with my rice for the next month!
But I use a propane camp stove. The refill on a tank is $18 to $22 (including tax) and I can't really afford extra refills. I can refill it once every three weeks. I'm worried that if I am running the tanks for a straight two hours of cooking that I'll run out of propane early.
Because of this, I want to make beans using as little propane as possible. I thought about doing a camp fire because that is free for me but all my cooking pots have plastic handles and I melted my kettles whistle by heating it on the camp fire. I don't want to do that to my good pots. This part is in here in case you have suggestions for that.
So until I have an all metal pot, I'm trying to make beans using as little propane as possible. I got boiling water and I'm soaking the beans in it for now which got me thinking...... keep reading on reddit ➡
When I have to name one famous dish from my hometown, I always have to name this. If you have been to Ho Chi Minh City, I guess you saw Cơm tấm everywhere. In food shops, in restaurant, and of course at the roadside. Although this is a rice dish, it can be eaten as breakfast, lunch, dinner and… supper. That’s a serious passion for pork chops! Besides, I must have Trà đá aka watered down Jasmine iced tea with this. It can be super hot in the South of Vietnam. Now let’s get cooking!
I'm not new to prepping in general. But I'm looking at my options for cooking during a power outtage. I currently live in an apartment with an electric range. I am not a fan of cooking and have zero experience cooking with a charcoal/wood/propane, so I don't know if I should buy a camp stove or small grill (grille?) that would fit on my balcony. I'm aware that this is against regulations and possibly dangerous, this is a "use in emergencies only" idea until housing prices drop (they will, right? ...RIGHT???) So I have to take storage space into account as well as storing gas/charcoal possibly for some time. I live with a spouse and no children or pets so it can be small. I can bring it to a friend's house to practice cooking. Any advice on what to start with?
Moving soon and new place has a dedicated spice drawer that takes up the side of the stove. Was super excited about the feature until I started reading about keeping spices and oils away from heat.
What should I do with it instead?
It’s not spice bottle narrow, maybe about 5-6 inches. I do think I should be able to keep a salt cellar there but have no other ideas.
Edit for clarification: it’s more like a built in spice rack than a utility or junk drawer.
I swear if I'm having cheap pizza like Dominos/Papa Johns or something the reheated leftovers are actually better than the fresh slices.
Until you try this method I can't describe just how crispy/crunchy the slice gets. It can take about 7-10 minutes but trust me it is worth it every time.
Thought I'd write a post on what I think is one of the most underrated items in Dayz: the gas stove.
I know it's something a lot of you will already know about, but I'm writing this for people who maybe aren't aware of just how good it is, or haven't realised what it is and what it does. Fair warning, quite a lot of words follow.
Firstly, in order to use the gas stove to cook with you need to know that it's made up of 3 individual components - the gas stove itself, the gas cannister, and the cooking pot (you can also use the frying pan in place of the cooking pot, but for this post I'll concentrate on the pot). The gas stove is the main item, and the cooking pot and gas cannister both equip to it. One of the best things about this cooking setup is that all of the three parts are either very, or fairly common.
The gas stove is rarer than the other two, but you'll still find it pretty much anywhere, from sheds and outhouses to garages and houses.
Gas cannisters are found in th... keep reading on reddit ➡
47-year-old DeVona Rothrock was last seen on November 21, 2014 at her home in Monrovia, Indiana.
That morning, DeVona’s 18-year-old son Nate, who was a senior in high school, borrowed DeVona’s truck to drive to school as his truck was not currently running. He left shortly before 8 a.m.
DeVona’s husband, Mark Rothrock, who worked a construction job, had left for an out of town business trip to Cincinnati, Ohio the day prior and wasn’t due to return until the following day.
Around 12:15 that afternoon, DeVona talked to her niece Andrea on the phone. Andrea said the pair talked for around 15 minutes, and nothing sounded abnormal. Andrea said DeVona told her she had gotten a check from Essie, her mother-in law, to help pay for a light bill. DeVona said that Essie was on her way to pick her up so she could go and cash it.
Around 3:25 p.m Nate came home from school and found the door to the house wide open. Nate went inside, but DeVona was nowhere to be found.

TL;DR: Make sure your current electrical set-up is compatible with newer appliances. Some info I wish I had known
Back in April when the Covid-19 craziness was just getting started (in the US) our oven crapped out for the 4th time since we purchased our house a year ago. Finally got our home warranty company to cut us a check instead of making repairs. We did a lot of research and since we had our basement stripped to studs for renovation project we decided we'd pay to have a gas line run to our kitchen so we could get the dual fuel set up we wanted.
Due to Covid the unit we picked out was heavily delayed (4 months). Since the stove top still worked on the broken unit I delayed on upgrading the electrical outlet from the 3 prong on our old unit to the 4 prong required for the new one.
I screwed up in assuming it was going to be an easy swap. My house was built prior... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I am in the process of gutting my truck camper and wondering if I should keep a propane furnace or not. I already got my propane fridge out and will be using 12v fridge instead or Ice chest, not sure yet. Found this guy right here and I guessing this will heat up the truck camper just fine; best part it also cooks!

Google translate tells me it's Norwegian and gives a rough translation about burying a fire late at night and something about God extinguishing old age, but I'd love if a native speaker could translate better for me :)
Ok I think I maybe a mild A here but this behaviour is driving me nuts. For info I am a SAHM and solely responsible for the kids. Husband is WFH due to pandemic but very little involved in prep and planning of dinner virtual classes etc. He makes eggs and ramen which is about it
Today I was a little unwell so by 5pm had made dinner. We were having a meal similar to sloppy Joe's so all I needed to do close to dinner time(approx 7pm) was heat some buns throw the mix and ready I cleaned the kitchen kids had evening milk and went to lay down on the bed.(5pm) I did give revious the boys a cup of milk and they had a pack of chips with it. SO knew dinner was ready on the stove So around 6.15 6.30 my husband decided to give the kids a snack of jam sandwiches and another cup of milk. He did not inform me.
Close to 730 I made dinner and when I called the boys did not want to eat.
Now im pissed as their whole potion will be binned as I can't save it for leftovers it goes soggy and bad. I aske... keep reading on reddit ➡
Or winery, if you prefer.
Hi guys I wanted to get a some tips or help with my stove, Im really a noob in this topic so if you could help me, that'd be great. In my house we have had only 2 stoves ever, but none of them really has got a good flame. It is frustrating because it takes like 10 min to cook an egg.
What can I do to fix and make the fire that comes out of it much (powerful?). Should I screw some parts at the back of it?
Thx have a good 1
After hearing great things about Hot Stove League, and seeing that it won the Baeksang award for Best Drama, I decided to give it a try. I thought that this was a very solid drama, and just wanted to share some of my thoughts.
All potential spoilers are tagged.
Spoiler-free synopsis: Baek Seung-soo (Namgoong Min) is hired as the new general manager for the Dreams, a professional baseball club that always comes in last. Together with Lee Se-young (Park Eun-bin) and Han Jae-hee (Jo Byung-koo), they all aim to turn the losing team into a championship team.
Availability: Viki (trailer here)
Why I watched it: After watching Doctor Prisoner, I really wanted to watch another Namgoong Min drama. I believe that he puts a lot of thought into the projects he chooses, and I appreciate his relentless hard work he pours into his acting. I've heard great things about Hot Stove League and decided to give it a go.
