This is in regard to a question I just posted:
It's a "how can I use ingredient X" question, which I imagine we'll see a lot of. It's an area of perennial interest to me, since I do tend to pick up these special-case ingredients over time, and I need to get a lot better at utilizing these cooking resources I already have. (Think of it as DRY applied to cooking, I suppose. ;-) ) Furthermore, it's an area that seems to me poorly served by existing recipe sources.
After reading this exchange about recipe trolling:
I'm on the fence on whether this kind of question should be off-charter or not. It wasn't my intention to troll for specific recipes. On the other hand, it's certainly got a significant subjective component to it, and could easily degenerate into a "list of recipes that use X" kind of thread.
What are your thoughts on how/if these kinds of questions might be appropriate? Is there a particular way you would have preferred to see me approach the question in the topic mentioned above?
