  • Do you consider tortilla chips and queso dip to be a meal?

    Best answer: No
    It's actually considered junk food since neither your brain nor your body can gain nutrients from it.
    Go one day without breakfast or lunch and then eat chips & queso for dinner when you're really hungry and then tell us how you feel afterwards.

  • What type of beef is best to make homemade chinese beef and broccoli? Is it chuck, I m not sure?

    Best answer: I often make it with a thinly sliced skirt steak, although if you can't afford that, use a sirloin or a marinated London Broil.
    But keep in mind that London Broil is NOT an actual cut of beef, rather it refers to a cooking method. The London Broil should be sliced as thin as possible-not necessarily on the bias, as you were probably told, but just thin. But London Broil can be quite tough.

  • Whats a quick meal to cook in 15 minutes include ingredients?

    Best answer: A friend of mine (he was divorced) turned me on to something he called "single man's casserole". You can either use a pan or a slow cooker. Take kielbasa sausage that you peel the "skin" and cut into 1/2 inch slices, a can of green beans (dump the liquid into the pot as well) and cut up an onion or two as well. Just take all the ingredients put them in the pan and let it cook. Mostly to warm everything and then eat. If you have leftovers, just take the pan and put it in the refrigerator and take it out and put back on the stove to warm the next meal.
    Very easy and tastes great.

  • Blending angel food cake batter in a bowl...?

    The recipe says that I have to blend it all in a glass or metal bowl. I don't have glass or metal bowls, just plastic. Can I use a plastic bowl to mix it all together? Why does it say glass or metal? What difference does it make? Also, can I use any cake pan, or does it have to be a bundt or flute pan? Thanks.

  • How do I make hot wings hotter?

    Best answer: Use anything you want either in the marinade or in the dipping sauce. Some options are sriracha, chili paste, jalapenos, dried chipotle pepper, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes...and if you're brave, go buy yourself a habanero pepper or some habanero sauce. Caution..if you buy fresh peppers be very careful not to rub your face, especially your eyes, while handling them. You may wish to wear disposable gloves.

  • Can you make bacon crispy if you cook it in the oven?

    Best answer: yes served with buttered cheese scrambled eggs and a tomatoe.yummy... I am a total oven-baked-bacon convert.It's just so easy — there's no flipping or monitoring involved. You just lay the bacon on a baking sheet, stick it in the oven, and set a timer. The strips of bacon bubble away in the oven (no splattering!) and gradually become the crispy, golden-hued, irresistible bacon we know and love.if you love your bacon crispy through and through, then you might try baking it on top of a metal cooling rack set over the baking sheet. Lifting the bacon up lets it cook from all sides and get even crispier.

  • Whats the best pizza topping?

    Best answer: In my opinion the best thing for pizza, regardless of toppings, is to put about 6 to 10 large raw / peeled garlic gloves through a garlic press, mixed with about 1/4 cup of olive oil. Just spoon that over the whole pizza and (assuming you like garlic) it is so good it will knock your socks off.
