I don’t get people who won’t share recipes, tips, and cooking secrets.

You impress them with your good cooking so they’ll have more regard for you and then piss them off by not sharing.

Guessing you are in the south. If you were up North you would get the recipe in detail with pointers whether you want it or not.

Heck, I want to set up a booth with a sign that says “Ask me how I made the green beans. “

They won't share the recipe because they want you to keep coming back to them for more. Or, if they do share the recipe, they'll leave out one tiny ingredient or step so that your version is good but not quite as good as theirs. Basically they want to get you hooked on their cooking so they can become your "dealer".

Due to the power of the internet, it’s possible to recreate most dishes with a few clues.

They don't want you to find out that "old family recipe" is something their grandma or great grandma got out of a magazine or off a box of one of the ingredients. Many of these old recipes can be traced back to ones published in the various magazines such as Good Housekeeping, Harper Bazaar, and so on decades ago.

Oh yeah. My grandmother's recipe folder was filled with can labels, the sides of boxes, and partial pages from magazines. She said the magazine ones were good but the ones on product containers were usually the best ones.

I'm still trying to cook like my grandmother decades later after watching her make food and I can't do it. And, boy, does it piss me off!

The big problem is that some of the best recipes don't really follow a recipe. It's a little bit of this, a little bit of that, etc. At least that's how my grandmother used to make her best stuff.

And, for the record, the "German Chocolate Cake" Is actually German's Chocolate Cake, from the recipe on the German's chocolate box.

No soup for you!

Now Roll That Beautiful Bean Footage!


Years ago, a former girlfriend found the recipe somewhere (it was the worst of times — pre-Internet) for Mrs. Field's chocolate chip and white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies.

These are probably my two favorite cookies in the world, and despite the price, I always get one of each when I go to the Apple Store mall.

To have a plate of them was unreal.

Now, with the innerwebs and all, I found a recipe that claims to make fries identical to McDonald's fries.

It's very empowering to know that I can make a mess o' fries that are the same as McDonalds fries and I think about doing that a lot.

Then I go to Micky's and get a QPD and a large fry.

Choice is empowering.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

This would be the modern McDonald's Fries, not the original ones, correct?
