  1. Just started Noom with my wife about 5 days ago. Already down nearly 5 lbs. I didn't think I would like it, but I do. I've never felt this empowered on a diet. Says I can reach my weight goal by mid-October (55 lbs down from the start). Anyone else try it? If anyone is interested, the first 2 weeks are free and you can use my referral code to get 20% off. https://friends.noom.com/YVJJMkoxU0l1OmNm
  2. Nice crumb. Great chew.
  3. First sourdough in quite some time.
  4. Finally cooled enough to cut it. Here’s the money shot.
  5. Honey oatmeal bread (see recipe I posted earlier). The apartment smells AMAZING!
  6. But, scientifically, that doesn't make a lot of sense. For dishes like cacio e pepe or carbonara, the starchier the water, the more easily the sauce binds. The starch is what makes a combination of melted cheese and water (w/ fat and egg, in the case of carbonara) become a creamy sauce. When you cook with the least amount of water, you create a highly concentrated starch solution, vs. using the minimally starchy drippings from pasta cooked in a tons of boiling water. This makes a better, creamier sauce.
  7. I'll definitely try to source good liver next time. This was just ground beef (using up frozen meat reserves), and it was still fantastic, though I did miss that minerally liver flavor. Next on the list are the red wine caramel rillons. Those look fucking incredible
  8. Trying to learn the ways of the coon-ass. This is my first stab at dirty rice. Wife said it was the best she’s had, and she grew up in BR and lived as an adult in NOLA. Whipped up the dark roux in under 5 minutes. Followed the method laid out in the latest Basics with Babish -Cajun Food episode.
  9. Fuck, now I want cacio e pepe.
  10. Here's that oatmeal bread recipe I mentioned: Finished product should look something like this.
  11. I’ve got a badass recipe foray easy honey oatmeal loaf bread (can be made into rolls in you prefer). Makes the best fucking toast you’ll ever have. I’ll pull out the recipe book and transcribe it tomorrow. It’s my aunt’s recipe, and she might be the only cook/baker better than my mom in my life. I honestly have no idea how my uncle doesn’t weigh like tree fiddy with her amazing cooking.
  12. Bangers and mash with some peas. Traditional pork bangers were acquired from Costco. Burnt the fuck out my my hand grabbing the metal handle of the pan I just pulled from a 400F oven a minute earlier. Whatever, these were worth it.
