    If you are going to buy a food processor with the intent of breadbaking, make sure to get a big enough bowl. I bought a 9 cup and can only make recipes with up to three to three and a half cups of flour, which is to say, not very many. I wish I had gone for a 12 cup.

    S05.E18: Andre Johnson: Good Person

    We have potlucks all the time at work and chili is a popular dish, so that seemed normal to me. But I don't think vegan chili or vegan anything would go over too big in my office either.

    S01.E17: Goodbye

    Well at least it would be honest. Breast cancer recurrence puts Maggie at stage 4, which is considered terminal. She may be in remission for now, but recurrence will happen at some point.

    S01.E15: The Rock

    So if the Million Little Things podcast I listen to is to be believed, the lawyer is an actual lawyer who occasionally acts for fun. Funny that the standout moment on the episode IMO was improv from the only non professional actor. And the minute Delilah made that statement and Elliott went running on the opposite direction, I knew there was going to be a problem. Very tone deaf of Delilah, it was a sensitive situation. on a side note, the actress playing Delilah looks so much like my best friend from childhood it's actually distracting. And it makes it hard to hate her😉

    S05.E12: Dreamgirls and Boys

    Ordering for your date was maybe a thing in the forties/fifties. That whole concept was so ridiculous for a guy Dre's age, they are really stretching for ideas to make him an idiot. The driving thing is more believable as it seems that for whatever reason guys still seem to drive the majority of the time, at least with the people I know. But I don't think any woman I know would object to driving or any man would feel emasculated if his date wanted to drive.

    Is this child related to the showrunners or something? I seriously can't believe out of all the child actors out there that he got selected for this role. The kid is awful.

    TV and Food: Did TV Make Us Better Cooks?

    In the spirit of the thread title, YouTube made me a better cook. Yep I said it and it's true.

    S05.E12: Legends of the Fortieth

    I agree about Jessica. How on earth do the writers think this is a character anyone wants to watch or root for? They do so well with all the other characters, it doesn't even make sense.

    Interesting. I make the no knead bread all the time, but had never seen the twist of proofing in the Instant Pot. Thanks I will have to try that.

    Does anyone follow youtube cooking channels? I really like https://www.youtube.com/user/flavcity and https://www.youtube.com/user/MindOverMunch for keto and meal prep ideas.

    Not following this. How do you use the instant pot for the no knead bread?

    What Did We Eat Today?

    Funny (to me) story about turnips. When I was little, I hated them, but my dad loved them. At every holiday dinner my grandma, who was the greatest, always made turnips "for Cathy" and I sucked them down because I appreciated that my Grandma made something "special" for me. As I got older, I realized my dad told her I loved turnips because he wanted them and he knew I would go along to please grandma. It became a joke as I got older. I love my dad and my grandma! And I still hate turnips.

    I don't know, I've been watching and mildly enjoying this since the first episode, but the last two really turned me off. I think im done.

    What Did We Eat Today?

    I tried this method and agree it is quite delicious. I normally use boneless, skinless thighs, but will add this to the rotation now.

    The two black sons are hilarious. That's the only nice thing I can say about this show unfortunately.
