Cooking terms: How much did you like it?

Still watching this Australian cooking show. It's also, of course, a tasting show, and hearing the same terms repeatedly: cooked to perfection dances on the tongue ticks all the boxes It's a knock-out dish! die for! Nailed it!

Still cooking...

Or at least, watching others cook. The first challenge in this episode was to make a quick, warming winter meal. The most successful was a spicy, prawn wonton soup. I'd have made a winter squash soup with corn, sweet potato, onion, and a dash of Hawaiian teriyaki sauce. A scoop of brown rice,... Sign in to see full entry.

I have been watching a cooking contest show from Australia. What annoys me about it is how much they repeat scenes and comments, as if viewers are unable to remember more than a few moments.

Cookery adventures!

What is your favorite exotic food or meal to make? I had the advantage of a gourmet-cook mother who liked to make food more interesting than standard American fare.

When you wake up at 3 am...

...and your tummy is crying out for a little something, and no matter how sleepy you are, the hongries are not going to let you sleep... What do you eat? A peanut butter sandwich? A bowl of soup? A couple of eggs? This time, for me, it's a bowl of soup--chicken noodle, eaten in the comfy chair with... Sign in to see full entry.
