    I made some tarka dal the other day, and it was the bomb dot com. Probably my favourite Indian dish.

    Home made pad thai is really easy to make and yummy. Bake your tofu for 25 minutes and boil your rice noodles for 3 minutes for prep. After that, heat the oil in the wok and start by frying up garlic, ginger and the white part from green onion, throw in an egg and much it all up in there, add the noodles and finally the tofu, the pad thai sauce (one part fish sauce, one part tamarind liquid, one part honey), some peanut butter to taste, sambal oelek and finally some bean sprouts. Mixed it all up and garnish with the green parts or the green onion, some broken peanuts, cilantro, lime wedges and hoisin sauce. The actual cooking time is lighting fast so make sure to mise like a boss.

    Can we substitute the tofu for chicken? Otherwise, that sounds pretty great

    My one pro tip: if you only ever buy one cooking vessel in your life, invest in a decent enameled cast iron Dutch oven. You can use it to cook almost anything and because cast iron is so good at radiating heat upwards, you will get a nice brown on everything you throw in there. Lodge makes good ones and a really good oven will run you 150 bucks and last you a lifetime if you take care of it.

    They look nice on your stovetop too.

    100% agree. And, they work with induction cooktops which are becoming more and more popular.

    I'm also a firm believer in having a big stainless steel stockpot, at least 3 sizes of frying pan, a wok and a saucepan/steamer combo.

    My single biggest pro tip; cook less, season more. Theres only so many ways to heat food, there's a billion ways to season it

    Fake Maple Syrup is not Maple Syrup. For anyone that does not know the difference please PM me as I can sell you 540 ml tins at zero markup ($6). Well maybe markup for some of you. It is this tin.

    I have fourty maple trees on my property. Tapped a couple of them for shits and giggle last year and made a small quantity of syrup. Most of the trees are too small right now but eventually I could have a decent personal production.

    Ok, if we're talking as an ingredient then yes - Real Maple Syrup is better.

    But strictly for pancakes, give me Aunt J.
