Yes, the TSM is a beauty.

 

Are you using a family recipe and have you done this before?

 

I've made quick pickles but not the fermented kind. I'd like to start though, using the fermenting method. Good for the gut I hear.

Another thing, I rarely ever grease the dishes.  I'm sure it has a lot to do with the shortening, but I've never had a problem with crusts sticking.

 

I don't think I've seen that statement before.  Butter is generally desired for richness and flavor, but shortening is easier to work with and store and makes for a more tender pie crust.  To be honest, I've never made anything with shortening, and will avoid recipes that don't use only butter.  I love me my butter.

As a studying health professional, that made me cringe.

I have been complimented on my Ramen making skills.
I can even make them taste like they are buttered without adding anything other than the spice. Skills wink.gif

I make a mean Ramen. Of course that involves extra ingredients for me, though. I add mushrooms, water chestnuts, bean sprouts, and chopped green onion (the last two right before serving so as to keep them crisp). I also add a little low sodium soy and a few spurts of Maggi (I use this stuff in everything), as well as some hot chili oil (basically sesame with some cayenne infused in it) when I feel like it. This works with either the beef or oriental flavors. Adding a few shrimp makes this the perfect meal.

I like to crack and egg or two into my chicken flavored ramen.

If you guys have not tried it... You MUST!

Cheap and yummy!

Can you share the method because I would love to try it

You can make it kinda runny & similar to 'egg drop' soup.

I make mine thick.

 

 

My process:

1) Get a small-medium sized pot.

2) Place the Ramen in the bottom of the pot and then fill the pot with water. Fill the water up just slightly past the Ramen, I use very little water.

3) Cook the Ramen for 2 minutes, crack the egg into the boiling water and pour in the flavor packet.

4) Cook Ramen & Egg 2 more minutes, and then take the pot off the burner and let it sit on the stove for 5 minutes. (The extra 5 minutes of sitting allows the remaining water to evaporate and gives the meal time to cool down.)
