I'm growing some cilantro, but its acting weird. It has very few leaves but is flowering and producing seed pods like crazy. I've decided to stop saying that I'm growing cilantro, and just say that I'm growing coriander. Cause thats all Im getting.

People don't know this?

It's not a thing I usually discuss at work or at parties, and even if it was, everyone up here is a gardener or a farmer, so I'd expect them to know about that stuff.

I tried growing cilantro once. Cilantro from the grocery store just tastes like soap to me, so I was hoping that home-grown would be milder. Nope! Extra-concentrated soap! Bleah! So my coriander is just going to stay in the jar, thank you, and get put in the curries and apple pie.

Cilantro is definitely one of those "love it or hate it" kind of herbs. I heard once that there's a genetic reason behind it, not sure if that's true or not.

It is genetic, I'm sure. I'm a supertaster. (way more tastebuds than average.) I can't stand anything bitter or biting, and I have a limited tolerance for spicy food as well. Certain flavors just come through as much stronger to me than to the average person. I drink tea, not coffee, cider not beer. Raw onions taste like pure sulfuric acid, radishes are out, and walnuts are nasty bitter things that spoil otherwise wonderful cookies. Cilantro tases like soap. This comes with texture issues as well, so sour cream and cream cheese are just way too cloying to be enjoyable. It took me years to learn to like ice cream too, as a kid I thought it was too sticky and heavy, and only wanted sherbet.

But on the bright side - I can notice small quatities of a spice that others would miss. A smidgen of fresh herbs from my garden really makes a big difference.

PG: try keeping the soil cool- works well for me if the plants are in a pot- warm soil (like over 75 degrees) can cause it to bolt and go to seed- I read this somewhere once and it seems to work for me- or if in the garden contact your local master gardeners club (what they are called in the USA don't know bout UK or anywhere else) and ask them for advice- they are usually happy to help and for free.

So Time Out Chicago recently did a review of the best bacon in Chicago. Check out this hotness:
We commenced our search at Lucky Platter (514 Main St, Evanston, 847-869-4064; $2.75). An order was placed for a smorgasbord of breakfast items, and when the swine arrived it glistened like wet gold teeth. They had dunked the strips in cinnamon glaze, making it gloriously sticky—like 3M got in the bacon biz. I saved a piece to hang a Garfield poster back at the crib.

My favorite pizza is good, thick, soft crust, good sauce and cheese (I don't know what makes these things good, so I just say they have to be good and I know it when I taste it), topped with bacon, anchovies, and pineapple. It's delicious.

Anchovies?

Bleah. Best way to ruin a pizza.

Nonsense. Anchovies are delicious.

It's true, however, that placing even a single anchovy on a pizza tends to make the whole thing taste like anchovies. It's not a bad thing if you like anchovies, but if you're splitting the toppings for multiple people, it's not the best thing to place on the pizza.
