This is brilliant--I was trying to come up with a female-friendly OP now that they are putting up logs here, but could not figure out how it would be male-friendly.

Re: *** May I Suggest a New LC Thread ***

they are offering this at my gym in a couple weeks.

http://www.bodyfattest.com/home.html

Paging loco to see if it's real and worth it for 45$. I'm pretty sure this is the same method from that trololololol Alan Thrall vid and thus fake as fack but need to confirm with the expert

Seems like you can punch through water during the test, which seems awesome but idk if it's worth $45.

Someone suggest me a good lifting tracking app for Android. Fitocracy still blows.

I still paper/pen.

One of our moderator overlords alleges that via never BSing I'm going to expedite my transition via T loss. Judging by Ilin's bodyshape there could be some truth to this. (might have to add in quarter squatting to really get the full benefits tho)

Moving Re: Seriouseats discussion here. I agree that they rarely miss... formerly I really relied on Cooks Illustrated/ATK, which is k. I find SE to be better with less ridiculous stick-of-butter type of recipes, not that I mind a SOBAD.

Anyone have a goto Seriouseats recipe? Lately mine has been "Crispy Braised Chicken Thighs With Cabbage and Bacon." I'd frequently made a similar recipe some years back, but this one is so easy and so ****ing good.

What's yours, if you had to choose one goto (on a weeknight, if you have to narrow it down)?

Plowing through a series on Netflix called Life Below Zero about various people living in Alaska around the Arctic Circle. Pretty sick. I imagine they asked skeletor to star or host but he said he is too busy for reality television. Would love to hear from him what he thinks of the series.

I would not be a good narrator/host as I tend to mumble a bit and I live in a populated area so I wouldn't start in it.

It is pure entertainment IMO (not a documentary about life in AK). The chick that lives up by herself is weird/overly paranoid/overly dramatic, which is probably why she lives by herself. They also make some people appear to be further away from civilization than they really are (the guide is on the road system and can drive to other cities when he wants). I think the white guy with the native family are fairly accurate about life in the sticks though.

I would say that this is one of the most realistic of the Alaska Reality TV shows though.

Re: *** May I Suggest a New LC Thread ***

DT,

The best ones from my bookmarks (all of which I've made at least once):

Chicken Paprikash (the favorite of my kids and the wifeacore)

Chicken Fajitas

Chicken Tacos

Green Chili with Chicken

Chicken Tinga

Turkey, Sausage, and Prosciutto Meatballs

Turkey and Mushroom Meatballs (I know this recipe is an ad for Pomi, but the simplicity of the sauce recipe especially is great and it's easy to make in bulk for other recipes that call for sauce, like the one above)

Chicken Cacciatore (two different ways)

Chicken Marsala

Panzanella

Chicken Parm

Green Grits

Ham and cheese scones

Buttermilk Biscuits

Kung Pao Chicken

Korean Chicken Salad

Pepper Steak

Katsu

Poached chicken (thanks Mihkel, my kids love the sauce especially)

Stuffed Turkey Breast

Grilled Shrimp (essentially borrow the baking soda/salt/sugar->skewer/let rest treatment for all of your shrimp grilling needs, because it is fantastic)

Red Beans (usually add multiple kinds of pork, so a few ham hocks, which you pull, shred, remove fat, and return once complete, and some sort of cajun sausage)

Grilled Chicken and Tomatoes with Basil Chimichurri (this sauce is the truth -- 2x everything but the oil and the ratio of herbs:fat is about right imo)

Grilled Rosemary Chicken

Poached salmon

Black bean burgers

Turkey burgers with ricotta, basil, and tomato

Turkey burgers with sriracha mayo and charred scallions

Buffalo chicken burgers (another huge favorite)

White chili (a bit labor instensive, but amazing flavor -- probably my favorite recipe of all of these)

Chicken Souvlaki

Blueberry crumb bars

Strawberry shortcake

Grilled Pineapple with Coconut

Strawberry buckle

French onion strata

Savory Irish Bread Pudding

Watermelon salad

Grilled corn and herb salad (my favorite summer side dish)

Cuban Pork Mojo

Peruvian Chicken with Green Sauce

Grilled Shrimp with Chermoula (**** yes this sauce is awesome)

Roasted beet salad (just made last weekend, was the hit of the party. Will be a staple going forward because my kids love beets. Did not add horseradish and it was still amazing, so amount can probably be adjusted to taste)

Re: *** May I Suggest a New LC Thread ***

Paprikash if you just need one, probably the shrimp with chermoula if it's grilling weather and the wife likes shrimp

I can narrow it down to like the 10 best if you need some mainstays

I figured there was some creativity in the production. I wouldn't worry about your mumbling and pauses. They can edit those out

Also works great with seabass. Obviously at this point just go with the 30 minute instead of all-day marinade. It is ridiculous how well this turns out.
