Sorry, didn't see this back in November. The Filipino groceries carry annato seed powder, but I brought mine back from Mexico in achiote tablets, and also got some by mail order (annato seeds, annato powder, and achiote tablets); run a search and you'll find the info I posted in a relevant thread. :wink:

EDIT: I've tried Indian dishes out of an oversized cookbook published in the West, with lots of pretty pictures, and have been disappointed every time. Recently, a delicious meal at the home of a lovely, charming and talented Forumosan from India convinced me to try again. I found the above site by googling, and it looked much more authentic, so I've started trying the recipes there one by one. Our Indian friend also gave the site a thumbs up. Do give it a try!

http://www.foodnetwork.com/good-eats/index.html with a handy index at http://goodeatsfanpage.com/GEFP/index.htm

Been watching the Good Eats show (starting with season 1), and love the way each shows deal with one main ingredient and explains the science behind the cooking. Bonus...the recipes I tried REALLY work.

I will now NEVER be ashamed again offering steak for dinner...I use the Lodge Skillet (mentioned in another thread), with my nasty little Kaiser oven...and pump out the best steaks I have ever made in 5 minutes.

:) You just made my day! Thanks.

I really like Martha Stewart, not just for recipes but all the housewifey things too, and her '101' section is really good. Her recipes are doable (the ones I tried that is) :) .

When I saw the Julia Child movie and her obsession with a good omelette, I felt great because Martha had taught me my way around eggs years earlier.
If it weren't for the internet I'd be boiling rice and making instant noodles every day. Or ordering out.
