The recipes sound delicious! After reading this thread into the second page I am ravenous.

I used to cook regular meals, nothing like these.

Inkfreq, this thread should be stickied, and if you do start up on YouTube, let us know.

I'm an idiot.

So I'm trying to find a dicing machine online and it doesn't look like such a thing exists. I'm even figuring out how you'd build such a thing...a machine where you'd turn a crank and a lead screw would force your vegetable through a grid while spiral cutting it into cubes. And I can't believe nobody's ever designed such a thing, but I can't find one anywhere.

And it's starting to bug me that people can sell these products called "dicers" that only cut things into thin strips, like fries...but they don't actually cut things into little cubes. I already have something that can do that!

Then I click a video. A guy takes a potato, cuts it into fries, puts the fries on the dicer a second time, gets small cubes.

I'm a moron.

Just diced 5 lbs of potatoes with a knife with a dicing tool in the cupboard.

Don't feel bad... I'll take a razor sharp chef's knife any day over some gimmicky cutter. I always cut them by hand.

Let me know how it turns out. I love... LOVE... that recipe, especially on a chilly night. The soup is delicious, and just warms you up ever so roasty toasty all the way from your head down to your feet. It's wonderful.

Excellent. I had 3 bowls (and I might have some for breakfast here in a bit.) And there's so much. This is going to carry us to Thanksgiving.

I've been doing a lot of yard work and have a lot more to do. Clearing leaves, sticks, brush, breaking up branches and burning them...this is perfect for that.

Outstanding! You're right, on a chilly day with a ton of yard work, that soup is the cure all.

Glad you liked the recipe, and congrats on cooking it up and enjoying it.

Wish I found thread sooner. I can cook but nothing fancy. Just enough to get by. I might have to try your Pork Roast Slow Cooked. My Mom makes probably the greatest roast ever, me not so much.

I'd also check out a YouTube channel if you had one.
