"DO I correctly assume that you're not a fan of extreme heat, like myself? I have lived in extreme dry heat most of my life, but did spend a couple years in Arkansas and Tennessee in the humid heat. Given the choice, I'd take…"
"Yeah, I hear you on the soup, which is why I don't use it much. Fresh ingredients are certainly better. I'm not quite ready to call using it the equivalent of saying one has given up, but glad to see you feel strongly about it."
"I absolutely agree with you on the condensed soup in a recipe. To me that is just a red flag that you have given up and are saying F it to the food you are preparing. There are so many spices, seasonings, herbs, ingredients and different cooking…"
"Your methods sound OK, but one of the items not allowed in my kitchen are condensed soups, and for all kinds of reasons. The other issues I've found when cooking certain vegetables with the roast, especially carrots, parsnips, and celery…"
"While the warmer weather does make roasts less attractive, I'm not complaining. I need some sunlight!
Otherwise, I hear you on the Dutch oven, but the crock pot has always worked for me. I brown the outside of the roast in a cast…"

"Oddly enough, "baked" potatoes in the crock pot are quite easy and tasty. If I'm taking potatoes to an event, it's easier to put them in the crock pot in the morning, let them cook while I'm at work, and come home with…"
"Movement of child to adulthood
dad having heart surgery when I was 10 made me grow up quicker knowing my dad may die, and then 2 years later he did. Being abused robbed me from some childhood.
I think maybe dating in high school helped me on…"
"I am perhaps the ultimate slow cooker sceptic, but this recipe looks and sounds excellent, especially if I make my own BBQ sauce from scratch. I'll try to remember to post a review back here when I make this."
"I also learned hard work from my Dad. We don't have a great or very deep relationship at all, but it was from him that I learned the valuable lessons of hard work and the proper handling and operation of firearms, both in hunting and…"

"Yes, I am in Italy. For now, I have noticed a big improvement. I'm trying to improve my food lifestyle. The most difficult thing is the workout, I feel strongly limited but I will try to find the right rhythm"
"Hmm...I would be curious to hear from other parts of the world with socialized medicine such as Canada and England to see if they have the same issues and put the "increased access and utilization" reason to test.
