Alex Guarnaschelli And Marc Maron Talk 'Iron Chef' And More On WTF (AUDIO)

“I do not understand the appeal of Alex Gargantuanschelli...at all.

An Iron Chef? Good grief...talk about the continuous slide into the morass when it comes to the "credibility" of the Food Network. She isn't qualified to be a peon cook's assistant on the original, Japanese Iron Chef.

i laugh every time I see her listed as an "Iron Chef"....what a joke.”

“The next few generations are screwed.

We, however, are going to be fine. We will still be able to enjoy the beach, pay our bills, turn on a faucet and get reasonably safe water out of the tap, fill our swimming pools and water our lawns, etc.

Good luck with all that, little kids and yet-to-be-born kids that will inherit this planet and have to deal with the inevitable challenges they will face with the changes and damage being done.

Hate to be nihilistic (I used that word correctly, right?) but there's no way we can stop or reverse what's happening...too late, and too much momentum and power behind the raping of the planet in the name of "the economy" and "jobs" (aka corporate greed)

Good luck kids!”

“Even though polenta is pretty simple, this is one of the better recipes I have seen on Huffpo. Kudos to the author.

I'm usually disappointed when I click on a recipe here and it's written by an amateur that clearly doesn't have technical expertise.

I love polenta, and usually cannot resists adding cheese. My favorite combo is fresh goats cheese and Parmigiano Reggiano.

A few ideas for accompaniments: roasted asparagus or broccoli and a soft poached egg; foie gras stuffed morels and a prune gastrique; braised lamb shank with red wine and tomato.

Ok now i'm hungry...”

“I lived in California for a while and remember how clueless Californians were about the size of the Great Lakes. I would tell them about surfing in Lake Michigan and how ocean-going freighters would shipwreck and they would laugh like I was making it up. They thought any lake was more or less a pond. Guess they didn't look at maps of the US very often. You know, the whole "fly over" states mentality.

I am sure it is only a matter of time before the southwestern states start to argue in favor of diverting water from the Great Lakes via a pipeline to irrigate California crops and feed the fountains at the Bellagio.

Ha!

While your lawns turn to dust and your swimming pools are empty, we will be swimming in our abundant, refreshing, clean, cool, Great Lakes.”

“Californians can tend to be a bit narcissistic. But that's why you moved there isn't it? It's also why you left. They just need to build some reservoirs and they'll be fine.”

“Also lived in California and I know what you mean. Now I live close enough to Lake Michigan to take a bucket down there each day if things get bad. The problem with California is mostly its agriculture. Raising beef, rice and soybeans in a desert is insane but it's exactly what is down out there.”

belladio on Sep 25, 2013 at 08:59:23

“How can they not comprehend a map of the great lakes? I live near one and yeah, they are kinda big. Are Californians incredibly stupid?”

“I see well dressed families use food stamps to pay for a cart full of groceries and them climb into a $40,000 SUV.

Don't kid yourselves, people are "working the system" like never before.

The question is, how do you fix the problem while still giving help to those who actually need it?”

“Leaving the pit in to prevent oxidation is a myth...doesn't work.

One new trick I learned is to dice the avo and then rinse it in warm water in a sieve, drain well and proceed as usual. Crazy but it works.

Also, if storing for a day or two before serving, squeeze some lemon or lime juice into the container and swirl around, then pack in the guac, tapping the container on the counter to remove air pockets. Squeeze a little more citrus juice on top, tilt to distribute evenly, then place plastic wrap directly on the surface to seal out air. Then seal with additional wrap or a tight fitting lid.”

The Best Breakfast Foods, In Order

“I came to this article thinking: "they better have eggs benedict #1".

#2 is OK, so you get props for having good sense for that, But donuts and cinnamon rolls in the top 5? Complete fail. The author is obviously pandering to the same "trend" mentality that produced the cupcake craze. Neither of those "foods" belong in the breakfast category, It would be like calling chocolate cake a dinner item. They are a once-in-a-while treat, not the sort thing anyone would want to start their day with on a regular basis.

Oh, and fruit and yogurt are fine, but add granola to that equation and you have a top 5 breakfast.

One last rant before I get off my soapbox...what about breakfast smoothies? Healthy and most importantly, fast!”

thelousysloth on Aug 26, 2013 at 23:56:14

“I was really annoyed with the donut and cinnamon roll too. However I have a friend who thinks breakfast foods are too hard to make so he insists on having things like them instead. I can not and refuse to believe that breakfast is too hard to prepare in the morning. Heck I usually start planning my breakfast when I'm cleaning up from dinner.”

“The "Food Network" has become a joke. I'd like to punch that idiot that runs it in his mouth and tell him how I feel about what he has done to it. For awhile there, 80% of the programming on TFN was cake or cupcake related. Now it's all about manufactured, phony "drama" with food or restaurants as the background. Ridiculous.

But he, like everyone else in the business of television realizes that by pandering to the dumbest Americans, he will garner more eyeballs, which means more sponsorship $.

“Oh please...show me a politician that doesn't have some dirt on them. If you make it to the highest reaches of government you are going to eventually be tarnished by a scandal of some sort. The question is if you are complicit, or just attached by association. Same concept applies to the wealthy. If you are a multi-millionaire, I guarantee you have done something along the way that can be construed as "unethical", just by virtue of the world in which you inhabit when you acquire that socio-economic status.

The question becomes not who is the cleanest...but who has the right combination of best intentions coupled with the ability to make things happen.

IMO, Hillary has both.”
