How to Make Fast-Food Style Biscuits?

If possible, let us leave aside the endless debate about whether or not fast food is "good food" or even "real food" and just accept that sometimes, some people like it!

If you've ever had a McDonalds or Hardy's (/Carl's Jr.) biscuit during breakfast hours, or snacked on a buttery crispy side from Bojangles or Popeyes, you should know what I seek: a biscuit which is low and even, crispy/flaky/buttery at the very exterior portions, and thick, fluffy, and "melt-in-your-mouth" tender within.

It tears easily, squishes well, but nonetheless, that thin layer of crispy, yellow exterior provides just enough of a juxtaposition to take these things from "good" to "addictive."

Canned biscuits come out crunchy on the outside (different than crispy) and dense and unsatisfying within. Handmade biscuits come out bumpy or lumpy and lack the subtle crispness on the exterior, or, if you manage it, never quite have the clean division between that and the pillowy interior.


So, regardless of how unhealthy, unwieldy, or unwise it may be, how can I make a fast food biscuit at home?

2 Great Videos about Entrepreneurship

Everywhere on Reddit I read about how important coding is, especially with the rapidly growing e-commerce industry. These 2 videos only reaffirmed what everyone here seems to say. I hope you guys enjoy these documentaries!

This video features Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit. He emphasizes three concepts in great detail: Community, Connection and Design, infused with some great anecdotes about the creation and sustainability of his companies.

This next video showcases the founders of Vimeo, Soundcloud, Kiip, InDinero, Dropbox, Foodspotting, and a few others, chronicling their rise to the top of silicon valley.

Edit: fixed the links.

online store/eatery reviews

(Firstly apologies for any formatting issues - I'm typing on my phone)

Every so often I will review a food establishment on Urbanspoon, Foodspotting, even on Facebook. These reviews are both positive and negative depending on my experience. I try to be as objective as possible. If it is a poor experience I will try and highlight some positives.

Fast forward to today. I went to a cafe that won best new cafe for my city for 2013. I ordered my meal and was left underwhelmed. I proceeded to Facebook and Foodspotting it with both negative and positives that I experienced.

This evening while checking my Facebook feed I noticed the page of the cafe complaining about negative social media reviews posted 30mins ago. I'm always of the opinion that negatives and positives should be reported to ensure any future patrons can see all views. Much like what a restaurant critic does.

So TFTC, what is your stance on the use of social media to review businesses (especially when done in a balanced way). Should businesses become all precious about it? Or should they take it as constructive criticism and aim to improve?

App and website/blog based on user generated content-- is this unrealistic?

I am in the process of starting my own blog/website. I am providing the initial content (photos of certain types of products, for illustrative purposes, let's say they are red hats) with my commentary, but in order for the site to grow (and for me to release a corresponding app) I will need users to submit content (photos of their red hats, which I would approve and provide commentary for), as it is impossible for me to create enough content to create an entire searchable, and helpful database.

I am starting with a blog, and for this, I do not need a huge database, I will describe the products as I go. I think people will be very interested in reading about these products and their descriptions because there really is nothing like out there-- it requires an editorial eye (only the best "red hats") so it's not something just anyone can do.

But, as I build my blog, is it unrealistic to think that I can get users interested in submitting their "red hat" photos, which is what the success of my future business depends on? I am actually very surprised that no current database exists and I know for certain there would be interest in the end result. I've read here that the first one in will just get copied etc. by later developers. So that concerns me-- but I'm not sure you could just start with a bare app and ask users to provide 100% of the content-- I am hoping my blog and start on the content will provide the necessary inspiration and participation.

But I want to take a step back and ask others more experienced with user generated content if this is a realistic plan? I think about apps like FoodSpotting-- they had to start from somewhere.

Mountainous mountain climbers.

I am currently packing a bag to go climb Kili, and in doing so have been reminded of a FPS that I experienced, but did not recognise in my pre-Reddit state. I'll try keep it short and sweet, so as not to turn it into a fat people hate story.

Be me last year (18, at the time, 5"3 and mid-relapse skinny)

Be climbing a big mountain in Africa with a group of people I've never met before.

MFW I meet them at the airport and only two look able to climb mountains.

MFW the others look like mountains.

Try not to judge, maybe they're all really strong and good climbers with a bit of weight. It happens.

fly to Africa. fuckyeahgonnabethebestexperienceofmylife.gif

After flight, take 2 hour coach to village, then 40 minute walk uphill to gite.

MFW we have to stop 3 times for one girl, (5"8, 300lbs, S) in 40 minutes.

We're supposed to be climbing a 4,167m mountain.

Spoiler alert; She's not going to make it.

She bitches about the food non-stop. The food is incredible.

"I only eat chicken and chips"

We stumble up the hill; average day of walking takes 30% longer than it ought to.

S moans about knees. Z moans about heat. S2 moans about feet. N moans about not stopping enough.

Reach base camp, tomorrow we summit! FUCKYEAH.

Out of the 8 kids on the trip, 5 decided to stay at base camp rather than attempt the summit.

MFW you've paid to NOT summit the mountain.

Summit day, me, Tall Guy and Dopey wake up super early to climb

datsummitatsunrise.fuck

Without other members of the team, climbing is suddenly very speedy.

What ought to have been a 9 hour round trip took 5.

We made it.

We stumble back down the mountain and spend a day in Marrakech.

S spends entire day guzzling this Fanta, with about 8x the sugar of normal.

Tastes like orange scented beetus syrup.

Admits that she didn't read anything about the trip; had no idea it was a summit trek. Thought it was safari.

I have no face.

And now I'm going to go and climb a mountain with people who are actually prepared to do so! I cannot wait to come home to pages and pages of yummy blue beetus!

Getting a nice thick breading on tofu, like catfish.

A favorite restaurant in the area has a "southern fried tofu" that is a vegan version. Think corn meal breaded catfish. I've found that I can do this with cajun seasoning, egg in milk, flour, and cornmeal (edit: a non vegan version, though I would be interested in a vegan one), however I can never get a good thick ultra crispy crust. It gets on there for sure, but it's very cube like, and it is crispy, but not as much as the restauraunt. Is this because I don't use a legit deep frier? How do I get it on the tofu better? Here is a picture for reference: http://www.foodspotting.com/places/887-souley-vegan-oakland/items/1087-southern-fried-tofu

You are the best.

Edit: Thanks for all your comments. See sentence above.

Writing an iOS beer app along the lines of Food Spotting. Would like some feedback from /r/beer

Hello folks!

Like the title says, I'd like to make a beer logging application along the lines of Foodspotting. Here're my thoughts on some of the features. Would love it if you guys could comment on what you'd like to see in the application:

  • Log beers, rate them, optionally tag them at a bar / restaurant.
  • (Undecided) Social integration via Facebook / Custom backend infrastructure. (Friends, make lists, view lists, find the highest rated beers in the app etc.)
  • I see quite a few apps integrated with brewery db that help you find local breweries etc. Maybe that could get rolled in as a feature?
  • Scan a bar code to get beer reviews before you buy?

Thanks in advance!

Coming to Japan from the US. Never been out of the country, needing some suggestions/help.

Me and my Mom are heading to Tokyo/Kyoto/Osaka in January. We have a pretty hefty budget and we are only going to be there for about 10 days so Im hoping to be able to do alot. Like I said in the title, I've never even been out of the country, so Im trying to prepare for the culture shock, but Im really excited.

I know that we're going to watch the Sumo Tournament and really check out Tokyo for the first 4 days or so, then Kyoto for 2 days or so, then Osaka or back to Tokyo, but I dont know about our plans 100% yet.

We are HUGE food people. Street food, High end, and all in between. We dont get freaked out by much. I know we want to do AT LEAST 2 high end meals, and a TON of street food. We want to try local cuisine and drink. I'd love to get drunk at one of those Tiny little 8 person ally-way bars in Tokyo I always read about. Ive also seen a lot about places like this: http://www.foodspotting.com/places/37756-toriki-tokyo/items/4946-yakitori. Do they all serve chicken? is there better to be had than this place? Can we get in? I have some many question. My anxiety is running crazy!

Also, any info on Osaka would be great.

So any help would be awesome!

Im just getting more and more excited to go, Im ready to see what this big ass world has to offer!

Launching a new restaurant discovery and review site. What do you think?

We just beta launched cualy.We've tried to combine elements of Pinterest, Yelp and Foodspotting into a site that focuses on interaction with the individual dishes offered at restaurants. People can search for, like, review, and add photos for dishes they've tried or want to try. You can also make lists like "Best of" or any other category you can think of by just clicking on an item and adding it to a list. Do you think you would use something like this? Any feedback, good or bad would be great. Thanks.

Can we make a list of useful travel apps ? (iDevices & Android)

Many of us rely on our cellphones (or mp3 players) when travelling, as they can have very useful applications installed, with lots of informations displayed clearly and quickly, as most of them allow Internet access too while being, if not cheap, always light. Applications such as Offline Maps, MapDroyd, CouchSurfing, TripAdvisor, Currency converters are obvious choices, but while I have seen some people mention them, I haven't seen a thread on this subject yet. So /r/travel, what are some of your most useful app ?

Edit : Thank you all ! Here are the most common & useful apps used by the community (based on 17 comments, but still). They are all free, and some are ad-supported :

La Perrada De Chalo why did I wait so long?

I think it was fear, I was afraid of what a hot dog topped lettuce, tomato, pineapple, cheese, bologna, green sauce, pink sauce, kechup mayo and a generous sprinkling of crushed potato chips. might taste like.

I finally decided to try.

It was glorious. Surprisingly balanced, and the chips added a nice crunchy texture. It sounds totally over the top and it is, but in a good way. Worth trekking a few blocks over from Roosevelt to Northern Blvd.

Great keto food: chicharrones con carne

The corner store around from my office has super good chicharrones con carne. These are not like the typical chicharrones or pork rinds you find in bags in the snack aisle... they're chunks of fatty pork that have had most of the liquid hog fat fried out of them. They look more like pieces of roasted bacon or pork shoulder, skin-on, than the puffy type you usually see.

This is what they look like, not my photo but basically identical to what they have here locally.

Tough to find nutritional information, but I'm assuming they're about 50/50 protein/fat by weight. Might be hard to find outside of SoCal or the southwest, but something to try if you can find them or want to just fry up some skin-on pork.

Help! I'm looking for application ideas for my university project

Hello,

so here it goes. I need to think of some kind-of unique idea involving mobile platform (Android is my choice), GPS and maps (Google Maps) and create an application. I have only two months and even less working time so it can't be very complicated and, so, the hardest part - to think of an idea which wouldn't exist in mobile application form yet.

I was going to create sightseeing map, but everytrail.com done absolutely everything what I had in mind. Then I've thought of "food map", but there is foodspotting.com already. Now I'm thinking about "public toilet map" (in my country there's serious problem with finding one) and while there are some competing applications (diaroogle.com being the strongest one) I could beat them with additional functionality.

Unless, someone will suggest something less "shitty" :) Or, if I go with toilet app you could think of any outstanding functionality for that application, so I could prove to my professors that it is better than the competition.

Thanks in advance!
