have you tried keto


Sorry that was the one comment on that whole page that legitimately gave me an audible chortle. Anyway. Don't know your interests, don't know your skill level, don't know your available equipment, don't know your dietary restrictions but I can tell you that any recipe with more than 500 reviews on allrecipes.com is so completely bombproof you could probably substitute salt for sugar and have it turn out okay (don't test this). I can also tell you that anything in the New York Times has probably been vetted by professionals well past the point of reasonability, but their palette may not match yours. I can tell you that baking is far more sensitive to precision than cooking and I can tell you that anything on cookingforengineers.com will overdetermine all recipes to the point where you probably can't fuck them up without studious effort.

just about anything, for realsies - i'm not picky

    skill level

i can ass my way through most things that aren't baking without worrying about it and as long as i have a written recipe baking generally works okay - i was thinking about making a chocolate babka for krimmas because i made one before that turned out super nice (courtesy of the good people at NYtimes cooking section)


i have an oven w/ stovetop, a grill, a griddle, and more than enough pots, pans, knives, etc - also an immersion blender i got for last christmas and a regular blender, and a rice maker, and a crockpot

and by "i have" i mean my parents

    dietary restrictions

none personally

although grubski is a little quiet nowadays i was thinking i could reenliven it with some christmas break cookery, possibly including ideas/recipes suggested by hubskiteers so if that sounds nice i'm gonna be posting some of that - maybe with a catchy gimmick it could catch on: "holiday hubski hfood" or somesuchlike

audible chortle is a good band name also

Audible chortle would be some bullshit art rock wannabes from Savannah

My wife was threatening a yule log until we discovered they're kinda tacky. One of my favorites is candied orange peel. Especially once you dip it in chocolate.
