What have you done that you wouldn't go on Facebook and talk about? I have eaten the entire skin off of a chicken as it cooled on the stove top. I season my bird with olive oil and lemon and then sprinkle salt, pepper and herbes de Provence all over. The skin hot from the oven is better than bacon!! Share your dirty little secrets!

    I was making char siu (red cooked pork). Recipe said to cut it up, make a sauce, cook it in the oven for a long time, basting every 10 minutes with the sauce. I made it about an hour before I started "tasting" it. I have never ever smelled anything that good. Only ended up with half of what I started with.

      Been there, don that...ASHAMED!
      I now make mine on the grill and leave it in larger pieces so as not to have the same outcome. By the way, I really do like it cooked on the grill better.

          This is the easy way, there are many more recipes that don't use processed sauces. Either way it's delicious. Enjoy.

            Can I do this with a pork roast? I have one that is the same cut as chops and I'm wondering what to do with it.

                This last Thanksgiving, after eating all the crispy turkey skin from the top of the bird, I saved all the remaining skin in its own bag in the fridge. The next day, I broiled it for a few minutes. Second Thanksgiving!

                            Not the entire skin, just the topmost crunchy browned part. :-) Chicken, turkey, DH hates that I desecrate the turkey by pulling a lot of the skin off it before serving it to our families.

                              My husband is mortified that I do that too! And I have to admit that the turkey or chicken does look a little creepy without the skin but that will never ever stop me. The skin is no good if you don't eat it while it's hot, why let it go to waste?!

                                The turkey gets carved before it hits the table at our house. When he carves it, my boyfriend hides the skin under the rest of the meat and discretely points it out to me as the plate goes around so we can snag it.

                                      love. my BF sometimes strips the chicken of its skin, fries that up crispy, then gives it all to me. any fatty-crispy meat bits, too. definitely a keeper.

                                      When no one is around I pull off the chicken or turkey skin, salt it (just a little) and put it - fat-side down - on a paper towel and microwave for about a minute it to get it real crispy. And then I eat it.

                                              One can is for serving, one can is for spraying directly into the mouth - or when everyone has gone to bed, sneaking down to the kitchen and filling a large glass or bowl and eating it by the spoonful. If there are leftovers it goes on the cereal in the morning. Sort of an ersatz trifle. Just don't spoil it with too much fruit.

                                                      When I was a little kid I would pull a big stalk of rhubarb, bring it to my mom and she would cut the leaf and wash the stalk. She would send me back outside with a little baggie of sugar. She's been gone now for over five years but it's the little memories like eating rhubard as a five year old that makes me smile.

                                                        For the last 2 months I have been without a cell phone. How peaceful.

I'm 43 and do not own a cell phone, do not have a FB account, do not tweet but I make cracklings for myself when my husband isn't around. I also make batches of Buffalo chicken drummettes for myself. But we do share in attacking the roast chicken skin! :)

                                                          I bought regular powder milk..as in full fat powder milk. I don't know if any of you ever tasted this powder milk(kinda hard to find actually) and i eat it with a spoon while watching tv....so addictive.

                                                            Tons of protein! well, maybe not so much as with the skim nonfat, but so much richer, I'd imagine. When I was pregnant i was told to drink a lot of milk for the calcium and protein. Well, I'm not a big milk drinker, so I would put a bunch of nonfat milk powder into a big glass of skim milk and blend. I actually grew quite fond of it, it was slightly thick and very rich tasting.

                                                              You must try the full fat version of powder milk then. So so good! I can eat the large can in one sitting if i can. I also love condensed milk and evaporated milk...and I also go for milk flavored gelato if available. I wish milk flavor was more popular in US. I love the milk flavored gelato they sell in Europe!

                                                                I do believe the world has become way to PC and corporate America has way over extended it's reach with many things. People have to have the right to some form(s) of privacy, regardless of social media.

                                                                    I will actually choose to go to my parents' house over my in-laws for Thanksgiving and one of the few reasons is being able to rip the skin off the turkey before my mom carves it up. My in-laws would think I was barbaric! I won't take this post off topic with all the other reasons I don't want to go to their house. :)

                                                                    I have also been known (only to my husband and parents) to eat a whole sleeve of saltines with a stick of butter spread all over them. I always intend to just have a couple and then the sleeve is gone.

                                                                    I have also purchased the Party Mix snack and eaten everything out of it except the pretzels and thrown the pretzels out. The texture of them doesn't go along with the other snacks in the mix!

                                                                    I don't do Facebook so I don't have to worry about that.

I recently discovered them on my first Aldi's trip. Apparently they're seasonal but they only have corn grits, PB, salt and oil if I recall correctly. Real simple list of ingredients and rather addictive, at least to me!

The first time I found them, I didn't even want to look at the ingredients, thinking it had to be some long and horrible listing. I was pleasantly surprised. Very addictive things. Seasonal at the Aldi stores in our market, too; generally Sept to early Oct, although they were also advertised last spring (and I missed out on stockpiling!).

If I had a dollar for all the times I was raiding the fridge for liverwurst at three a.m., well, I'd certainly have more dollars than a few shares of Facebook went for on IPO. I wish someone else in my house like braunschweiger/liverwurst; I could share the blame. But: it's all me.

                                                                                      Isn't it great? Try plopping some lingonberry jam on top. Oh. My.

I used to bring it to school on a sandwich as a child and my taste for it has only gotten stronger. Unfortunately I've come to realize that it's not the healthiest food to ea and I realize that I have no self control if it's in the house consequently we don't buy it. But when my father in law was alive I would use that as my excuse. Not sure if he got any of it but I sure had a good time!

All this liverwurst talk has been just too much for me, and this cozy Sunday morning's brunch was fried liverwurst on French toast with maple syrup. Passadumkeg suggested just that in a thread on breakfast a couple of years ago, and I have been hooked ever since. Dangerous stuff for a liverwurst addict. And go ahead and gild the lily: fry the liverwurst in bacon grease.

                                                                                            My kitchen stills smells hauntingly of liverwurst, bacon grease and maple syrup. Thank heavens I have too much other cooking to do today, or I'd be going back for round two of liverwurst and french toast.

She wouldn't touch them all and now I am suppose to finish them....and they are so fattening...and I don't really enjoy them too much either..a bit too chalky for me.

My cousin and I fight over the turkey skin on Thanksgiving and we have been for 60 years. It is the best!!

I'll toast the bread, then I'll sprinkle a bit of coarse salt, maybe some granulated garlic on the mayonnaise.

But when out at a restaurant, he said, don't do that here, it's not "civilized". Is that true? In any case, I eat my sunnyside up eggs that way at home, and order scrambled out.

As long as you are tidy. How else are you supposed to eat all the runny yolk? with a spoon?

                                                                                                                            I used to eat this frequently, and when I went home to visit family, I would take two bags to my great aunt, who ate very little but still loved the puffcorn. She passed away nearly 2 years ago and I haven't eaten it since.

Let's see what else...box of club crackers with a stick of unsalted butter...mayonnaise, solo or as a sandwich...most salad dressings on any kind of bread ( we used to fight for the vinaigrette at the bottom of the bowl, mopped with rye)...oh, and one of my personal faves, a mound of crab meat with butter on it, placed on a slice of Smithfield ham and broiled. More mopping. Squirty cheese, out of the can like the nozzle is a straw...way better IMO than whipped cream.

Spent a good portion of this summer working with the campers (I do summer camp administrative staff work) to avoid the food on a stick eating. Fine for corn dogs, but if we are serving pork chops, it is not ok to stab it in the middle with your fork and then just keep eating around it.

Skin especially the belly is the yummiest. I did that once with KFC because I hate their white meat, but the skin is the best.

I recognized the carton in the refrigerator as the milk I got with my school lunch and thought it would be good on my cereal.

The fat satiates the appetite almost instantly. No yogurt for me. For me those thick heavy styles are like eating lead. It just sits there heavily in my stomach.

In one passage she talks about how she never really loved cocktails but her favourite beverage was a cup of heavy cream. Is it socially acceptable for me to say same goes for me? I'd give anything if I could go to a bar and just get a little cup of heavy cream.

                                                                                                                                                                GUESS what my darling husband gave me for Christmas. 2 flats of double cream (about 2 dozen bottles). It's sort of the consistency of whipped butter, but with the taste of heavy cream. It comes in little glass bottles, and only occasionally do we see it in specialty grocery stores around here, a very small bottle for around $6. And the worst (best?) thing is it should not be frozen (Says so right on the bottle) and the expiration date on all my bottles is June.
                                                                                                                                                                I think he bought them off Amazon.

So delicious. I also have a shameful addiction to ruffle-style very salty potato chips dunked in sour cream. Also, on Sunday I make myself biscuits and sausage gravy often, which seems pretty decadent for a person dining alone.

                                                                                                                                                                    Also a very small percentage of prosciutto ever makes it to its intended purpose

Ate them all before I got home, then lied and said I hadn't had enough time to stop. They were goooooood. And there was no way he was going to enjoy them as much as I did.

                                                                                                                                                                              I have since confessed, after he finally got his hands on one, and said they were OK, but he would prefer a chocolate chip cookie. So I was right.

I came back to work and they were staring at me...so I said, what the heck, i will just eat one and let them share one. then later afternoon..i though, hmmm..one is not going to be enough to feed both so...at the end i ended up eating all 3.

As my closest friends already know, there is NOTHING I wouldn't go on Facebook and talk about. My dearest friends (who are as close if not closer than family) that happen to be on FB are spread across the country and it is how we stay connected. They have seen me (and I them) through the lowest and highest points of my life and we tell each other everything.

                                                                                                                                                                                2. My biggest culinary "secret" would be that after skillet grilling meat ( hamburger, pork chops, ham, etc) I LOVE to scrape up the residue (the little bits which are the reason for deglazing a pan) and enjoy every second of eating it as I savor the flavor.

                                                                                                                                                                                    Sadly, they are no longer.
                                                                                                                                                                                    Now I enjoy Chowhounding Breakfast Lunch and Dinner seven days a week.
                                                                                                                                                                                    I seek out Chowhound worthy grub every chance I get. In between meals. After meals. Constantly, non-stop Chowhounding. Everywhere I go.

                                                                                                                                                                                    Wherever I may roam.

                                                                                                                                                                                    I'm not ashamed, but most people find it odd that I look for Chow worthy spots constantly and consistently. On my way out of a pizzeria I notice a Chinese take out spot with a menu in the window. I find one thing that's different on that menu and make a note on my phone map to return for that one dish.
                                                                                                                                                                                    I am forever constantly and consistently non-stop Chowhounding. Anywhere I may be. Whomever I am with. Whatever else I may be doing. I live the life of a Chowhound.
                                                                                                                                                                                    I report my Chowhound worthy findings on Chowhound.com and discuss them with others who do the same. It’s an interactive sport that can be enjoyed by one or many. There is no entry fee. No nothing needed but an appetite for something Chow worthy.

Smoked salmon, lemon and a little sack of greens is what I often pick up for supper.

                                                                                                                                                                                        I'm pretty shameless. Tonight at a nice seafood restaurant, I admitted to eating fish sticks at home. With ketchup, I forgot to mention--but I would have if I'd remembered!

                                                                                                                                                                                        And btw, I am more likely to meet someone judgy on CH than IRL ... just sayin'.
