    I prefer NY Style to deep dish myself.
    Same here. Sorry Chicago....I had to have a true Chicago deep dish the last time I was there just to say I had one. It was good, but not great. The hype didn't quite live up to the reality for me. Now I've never been to NY, so maybe the same thing will happen if I go there and try a slice.

    I'ma-like the Thin Crusts, myself, for pizza.
    The thick or deep-dish, just the hot crust slathered with butter, no ingredients added.

    I have been described as "a real bread-and-butter girl". If they only knew. I'd rather have a crusty roll with butter than a hot fudge sundae.

    Why not put ice cream and hot fudge on the crusty roll? Best of both worlds there.

    Hey - talking pizza ...

    I'm from Trenton. We have TOMATO PIES. They are NOT pizzas.

    Trenton - home of DeLorenzo's, Papa's, and Maruca's. They make magazine articles!

    Anybody else from Jersey - WE KNOW!

    I can never find fresh rhubarb. I mean I could at like Whole Foods but it is ridiculously priced.
    I find it growing near my fence in the backyard. This year was a good year for it.

    I'm making 2 racks of baby backs for Father's Day even though 1) my husband isn't home, and 2) my father doesn't want to do anything this weekend. More ribs for me and the kids then.

    I'm so sick of take out, but no one is ever home, feel like it is kind of useless to cook.

    Far'wyn --
    When I was single and working 3-11, I used to make large one-pot meals. This is not the same as a crock-pot meal.
    I would put one cup of raw rice in a pot, brown it with a little butter,
    then add 2 cups of chicken broth,
    and a bunch of cut up chicken (like boneless thighs) or stew beef,
    and whatever vegetable I had (would precook carrots and broccoli because I don't like them al dente').
    Bring it to a rolling boil, turn it down to simmer, put the lid on and then wait 20 minutes.
    Spice or herb-it-up if you like it, but after it's cooked, not before.
    Done. Hot + ready to eat ....or.....
    I'd divide it into 5 containers and there was my supper to bring to work each night. If I had had a freezer, I'd make up several one-pot meals and freeze a bunch to mix and match. But I didn't mind eating the same supper five nights, and it's a good thing because I did not have a freezer bigger than a small toaster.
    Hope this is helpful!

    That sounds good!
    I do that too. I make turkey chili. I make pulled pork shoulder in the crock pot. I also make a big pot of red sauce with meatballs and sausage every 3 weeks or so and freeze it.
    I think I just miss cooking for my kids. More a psychological thing. I like cooking, but I also like people eating my food.

    My mom just bought me a potato baker. She had an old stainless steel baker that finally fell apart, and found another one online. It is not stainless steel, in fact, I don't know what it is! But tonight I made 3 chicken tenderloins, and a baked potato in the baker (it is stovetop, so you don't have to turn on the oven for one tater) and frozen veggies with lemon salt and pepper.
    Of course, THEN everyone came home looking for dinner.
    I can't win.

    Huh. It's like a tiny oven you put on your burner. Neat. It looks like an upside down sauce pan.

    Also, at that link it says the item frequently bought with the potato baker is another potato baker. Which makes me think the most frequent purchaser of potato bakers are probably moms - that's how I got my microwave egg cooker.

    Break egg into a small bowl
    pierce the yoke
    add 2 tsp water and swirl (as opposed to mixing vigorously)
    Stick in the microwave in high for 1 minute
    remove from microwave and if 'scrambling' is desired, mash up egg with a fork.
    TA-DAH!
