mmmmmmmm foood :D It all looks so tasty- going to make the dip sometime soon

I gained 10 pounds just reading the article.

No regrets!

The apple crumble looks particularly appetizing. Definitely have to give that a try sometime.

*looks at his "Geek to the Core" badge*
*shakes head*

This is one way in which I'm not much of a geek. I tend to eat a bit healthier than that. Lots of salad, fruit, a moderate amount of meat and cheese, and few complex carbs, almost all of which come from whole grains or potatoes.
...and I drink more green tea than mountain dew... well, actually I drink the Shasta knockoff of mountain dew. But not much of it.

Quantum Leap reference? I'll have to try it just for that!

That apple crumble doesn't sound too bad either...

Some of those eat's sound rather tasty~

If you'll excuse me.... *Om nom nom nom nom nom* :D

How much tea is in a bag of earl gray tea? All of my Earl gray is loose leaf.

edit: after doing some research I have found that 4 bags of Earl gray tea is about equal to .35 oz

Random moment of "wtf" of the day:
Open a random article on the escapist and immediately ask "Is that scott bakula?"

Sounds interesting I wish I could cook but alas the only thing I can make is a mess of things.

Definitely interested in trying the blossom, though I'm curious as to what kind of beer is recommended, since there are so many types of beer out there.

Rose Tyler with Parmesan Cheese?

She'd have Tesco value cheese scrapings.

And gravy/curry sauce.

This is a proper Rose Tyler chip supper.

You're making me really want to live in London right now, and I don't even like fish all that much!

I drink Earl Grey on occasion. Not bad, really.

Ha! I love the little stargates! And those cupcakes look intriguing.

I was personally intrigued by the choice of using nutmeg on the chips. I personally would swap it out for some freshly grated parmesan cheese and garlic powder, but that's me. The cupcakes looked interesting as well. I'm not much of a dessert guy but I may have to investigate that. Until then I'll stick to my chicken parmesan, chili, and a thing I call the Triple Play: Bratwurst on a salted pretzel bun with beer cheese sauce, topped with tomato and fresh peppery cole slaw and mustard. It reminds me of all that is good at baseball games, because quite frankly I hate the game of baseball, so all that is good is food related.

The chips recipe sounds more like a gratin recipe where someone forgot the cream. I've got to admit, though, my heart sank a little when you disposed of the bacon renderings and added mayonnaise in the Swiss Bacon dip.

Pro Tip: Instead of mayo, drain and reserve the bacon fat. Whip one chicken yolk (Just the yolk, mind you; no albumen) with a sprinkling of salt until the yolk thickens slightly and is notably lighter in color. Add about a tsp of dijon mustard (or less if you like; the lecithin from the yolk should provide all of the emulsifying power you need, really.), a pinch of ground red pepper (cayenne), and whisk to combine. Once everything is fully integrated, SLOWLY pour the bacon renderings into the yolk while you continue to whisk. Drizzle that liquid love in. If you pour too quickly, or, God forbid, just dump it in, you'll end up with a nasty oil slick instead of a lovely sauce. After you've established a good emulsion and added all of the bacon fat, season with salt, black pepper, and lemon juice to taste. I personally would run a garlic clove through a microplane, or use the flat of a blade to turn it into a paste, and add that to the bacon aioli.

I'd like to see a recipe for Bachelor Chow, personally. This stuff all looks pretty tasty though.

My best recipe? Fresh bread, mozzarella, mexicana doritos and ham. Microwave for 25 seconds. Enjoy.

I'm so hungry now...
When will I learn not to read recipes from the internet!?

What is an oz anyways? I honestly have no idea what those measurements mean. Imperial units are so stupid. The system uses the same units for force and mass, which in my opinion is why people think the two are synonymous.

What's that? Chips? Why, I'll have mine swimming in tomato sauce, thankyou very muchly. Yum Yum :D

You carry it well :P

OT: Food - can't live without it... can't live without... it?

Something like that.

Yay food!

Nice. They did something like this on Rock, Paper, Shotgun a few months ago, but it was all World of Warcraft food. And, just like this, it all looked absolutely delicious.

Except the marshmallow casserole. I have my doubts.

Hi! I'm interested in making the Earl Grey cupcakes, but I've never measured in cups and tablespoons before. D:
Do you know the equivalent in oz? (Ounces) Or millilitres for the milk. xD

It's fine if you can't, just thought I'd ask is all.

If you enter it in Google (x cups to millilitres) it should do the math for you.

OT: All this is too much cooking for me. I like my food premade, whether it's fast food, microwaveable, or MRE's.

Hmm, You're right. :0 I just like to ask because Google hates me. xD

*goes off to bake* =P

Lies. Google is the benevolent master of our universe. It has not the capacity to hate.

Regarding Picard, it's not an "office", it's a "ready room", and it's not "appètit", it's "appétit". =D
Enough with the nitpicking! Nice article, and the Stay-Puft Sweet Potato Casserole sounds appropriate enough for upcoming Thanksgiving!
Yum. Now I'm getting hungry... And I just had lunch!

Am I the only one who missed something Oddworld-related?

Yokai:
Except the marshmallow casserole. I have my doubts.

Marshmallows are actually a traditional topping on sweet potatoes. It's always been one of my favorite holiday dishes though - I looked forward to Thanksgiving every year just for them. With the cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar it's really more like a dessert.

If you really want to amp it up, you could try the Stay-Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows from thinkgeek. I'm really tempted :P

No caffeine for me, I'm hyper enough as is! ^_^
Incidentally, the sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top has always been my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner too!...

I'm so ashamed! One of these errors is egregious, one of them is because I seem to rely too much on my high school education. Guess which is which :) Amending both; thanks!

So... these are just regular recipes with stupid names? Super awesome there guys.

At least there was no Portal reference.

For real geek eats, see the Chupaqueso.

I don't have a cheese shredder.
