    funnel dispenser

    Hi all - I am thinking of getting a funnel dispenser - I came across one made by Fat Daddio's - does anyone have any experience with using one of these either plastic or stainless steel? I want to use for portioning caramel and perhaps chocolate Looking for any input TIA

    Kitchen Remodeling

    Has anyone seen the new kitchen sprayer technology by Delta called ShieldSpray? Here's a link to their website (click). You don't lose the regular spray function or streaming function of a faucet...it's just a new function in addition to the others. Here's a video showing it in use: So it it a good thing? Or just a gimmick? I like the lack of spray splatter (but, really, no one sprays a plate and make a mess like that unless they've never done dishes before ).

    Grocery Shopping

    Yesterday at Shoprite I was told their delivery was coming in last night. I woke up in withdrawal and hurried to Shoprite before work. No limes. I'm sure this is because of International Scurvy Awareness Day on 5/2. Scurvy is a dreadful way to die. Meanwhile I just placed an order with Amazon for ten limes, with delivery for tonight.

    Trader Joe's Products (2017–)

    I tried the Semi-dried Antipasto Vegetables and thought they were fantastic. Had them as a side dish room temp. The texture of the veg was not mushy, but toothsome and had lots of flavor. The oil is subdued and not too much. Product of Turkey, I know they sun dry a lot of veg in Turkey, so I wonder if these are sundried or? I bought the antipasto cherry tomatoes and the grilled artichokes but have yet to open them.

  10. Man... talk about first world problems. Sorry but I find the notion of "really caring about your customers" being reflected in the type of lock used on the bathroom stalls/doors a bit over-the-top. But carry on... I'm actually kinda interested in seeing where this goes.
  11. Canneles were discussed in another thread seems a D/C for TJ's right now called yest and they saved me two there were 12 in the freezer section , so I bought 4 get them while you can. these are to die for : they come in different shapes at different times of the year. you will eat the whole packages so plan accordingly don't know what the next ' season ' is might be halloween * sigh *

    Dinner 2019

    @eugenep Thanks for your kind words. I use a Canadian bread flour. It is from Rogers Flours and it is one of their commercial products. Protein is 13.4%. Even their regular bread flour available in grocery stores has 13.4 %. protein. I have tried a number of "pizza dough" recipes and also the 00 Caputo flour. And I haven't found a recipe or a flour that I like better than what I use. If I know that I am going to use a batch of dough for pizzas than I will usually increase the hydration. The batch above was 76% hydration and started with a yeast biga The higher hydration makes it easier to stretch with a couple of rests .
  13. This would be great for a large household, too.

    I would eat it as a lettuce - I love cilantro, though. Cilantro+shredded coconut+chili pepper Cilantro chutney (sugar/vinegar/spices) Pickle the stems.

    Dinner 2019

    pizza looks really good - a lot of your meals are executed pretty perfectly Question: did you use all purpose flour and or 00 Caputo or a different flour? And..would you happen to know the protein content of the flour you are using offhand? thank you I imagine that the circle shape for stretching the dough depends on higher protein/gluten for elasticity?

  19. I flew Singapore about two years ago and I'm struggling to remember the food but recall how comfortable the seat was for economy even though I was stuck in a middle seat for 13 hours. It was LHR-SIN after a sleepless red-eye on Virgin which was extremely uncomfortable despite having an empty seat next to me. After that the 19 inch wide seats on Singapore were a dream come true.

    I never, ever considered using nuoc cham as a dipping sauce for salmon cakes. What a fantastic idea! Thank you.
  22. Not at all ... once the coke was gone, I enjoyed the left-over Bourbon like it should be 😉

    Easter Menus

    My brother dropped off a nine pound bone in leg of lamb that he got from Lobel's and asked me to make it on the grill. I have never grilled a leg of lamb before. I settled on this recipe: https://food52.com/recipes/3851-grilled-leg-of-lamb-with-dijon-mustard-rosemary-and-garlic Hopefully it will be good. I. along with three others who will be at the meal, do not eat lamb, so I am also doing roasted chicken with a honey glaze. Side dishes are all various family requests: duck fat roasted potatoes (father), asparagus (sister), whisky-glazed carrots (niece), and some sort of bread (nephew) and some sort of salad (mother) TBD this evening. My parents strongly dislike appetizers before dinner so I am not making any. No one in my family is a big fan of dessert either so I'm just going to put out a small plate of mini desserts that I already have made in the freezer just in case anyone (the teens haha) wants something. Husband is in charge of the wine selections. I know we'll start the gathering with a champagne toast to my parents, who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary today.

    @Okanagancook. That is how I feel too. I would be happy to just eat the rim.
  25. But you dishonored the bourbon.

    Ha Kim we think alike! The squirrels love my yard, lots of big trees and a lawn where they can plant their findings and come back for a snack months later. And yes, I to put out stale gougere's for the little devils.
