Brown lettuce may or may not be harmful to you, it depends on how far gone it is. We get a lot of questions on this forum asking about how to use ingredients which may be past their prime, and the advice is almost always not to try - mixing bad ingredients with good ingredients is almost always going to ruin your good ingredients and waste time and money. ...

They're certainly edible, but you might have to work for it. A Western view from Purdue CropINDEX: Tamarind seeds have been used in a limited way as emergency food. They are roasted, soaked to remove the seedcoat, then boiled or fried, or ground to a flour or starch. Roasted seeds are ground and used as a substitute for, or adulterant of, coffee. ...

I make a bisque. I scrape the corn from the cob and puree the vegis, add some whipping cream, and salt to taste after reducing your stock. It is the best part of the meal. If there are a lot of potatoes left I will use some in the bisque and then make some potato cakes to serve with the bisque.

You could use these as an aid to shop bought cake mixes, I sometimes use a commercial pound / sponge cake mix. And then make a homemade icing, you could add the powdered sachet to the icing sugar before mixing, you might have to experiment with the amount for flavour.

You can get them dried and otherwise processed from Amazon, rose water too. Fresh is going to be a greater challenge. I don't know of a better answer than letting your fingers do the walking or making friends with a gardener. Of course, if money is no object there is always an option.

I can't really answer the question on what to do with the egg whites but the question how long the egg whites are good: two to four days. Hmm, what about macaroons?

Cilantro (or as the rest of the world calls it, coriander) is one of the most ridiculously applicable cooking herbs I have had the privilege of using. That said, you are correct - when dried, it's application becomes far more limited (to a far greater extent than most other herbs and spices). I have successfully used dried coriander in english stews, ...

I've been asking my friends a similar question all week. The most interesting answer was by a friend whose mom used to parboil it and add it to stir fry with shrimp. Perhaps add a bit of ginger and honey.

If you don't consume the cheese at once after opening the original package, you are supposed to transfer the liquid into a storage container, or replace/fill up with water.

I don't know that you'd want to make a full meal of it, but it sounds like you'd enjoy nutritional yeast. You can find it at any "health food store" type of grocery. It is deactivated, so you don't need to worry about it filling you up with CO2. The flavor is somewhat reminiscent of Parmesan cheese. Googling "nutritional yeast recipes" will give you plenty ...

With a little planning you can add it to most brownie mixes with great results. You might have to add an extra egg and some milk to the mixture and bake it a little longer, but that's a heck of a lot easier than trying to make something from scratch. I made some brownies with about two or three cups of crumbs, took them to work the next day and everybody ...
