  1. you forgot trader joes and the itlian deli , if i remember correctly i think it was called romas or something to that effect..small hole in the wall place with wonderful smells inside..they also do some great sandwhiches ..all italian style of course...another place not mentioned as a destination...tanque verde swap meet..large flea market..though it has not been on tanque verde for quite some time...i think it moved over to palo vrde... but since its been a while since ive lived out there and have only visited three or four times in the last nine years ( twice last year) you might want to get some oen else to tell you exactly where it is...have fun
  2. i lived out in tucson for a number of years... close to twenty..too bad about the tack room.it was a great place...mexican food...one major suprise for what was not mentioned...club 21 ..used to be out on oracle road right around the miracle mile turn..it may still be there..may have moved..not sure..but they served fabulous green corn tamales..if they r still around they are not to be missed for that alone...they used to be quite good
  3. Ahh... The French Pastry Shop! One of my earliest memories is about this place. My family was staying at La Fonda and my sister and I were exploring the hotel. I was about four, she was eight. When we found the pastry display, we must have stood there - jaws dropped, I'm sure - for at least ten minutes ogling the treats. We'd never seen anything like that before. Rows and rows of beautiful pastry! Finally, the person behind the counter took pity on us and gave us each a cream puff. The memory of it has been stuck in my head ever since. I still make a pilgrimage there every time I visit Santa Fe. It hasn't changed much in thirty years. Over the years I've eaten at dozens of Santa Fe restaurants and I honestly don't recall a bad meal. Right now I'm recalling some chile rellenos I had at some place on Canyon Road. Roasted green chiles stuffed with Montrachet and walnuts. Sublime. Can't get good chile rellenos in Texas. They insist on using poblanos here. Don't get me started on Tex-Mex. If I were to move back to NM, it would be for the food. And the mountains. Also family, of course. The weather is nice too. (101 degrees in Dallas yesterday - yes, really) And the people are great. Hmmm... where's my luggage? ← there is a little mexican restaurant here in denton over on south locust street across from the family dollar store. the place doesnt look like much on the outside but on the inside the food is pretty good. authentic mexican cuisine, and my finace and i have had many a good dinner there in the last year...and the prices are very reasonable. And while ive tried many things on the menu i have yet to try theor chili rellenos but i am told it is quite good. the place is called La Mexicana. you should check it out some time and see how their chili rellenos compares. Next time im there i fully plan on trying theirs.
  4. My condolences on the passing of your mother. When you have a chance to research these leads, let us know how you made out. ← ty for the condolences, i will let ya'll know how it pans (no pun intended) when i take a good look at everything.
  5. sorry i had not been back to check on this til now....my mother passed away recently....so with that and other things going on...i forgot all about this until i looged on and found an email from wendy dated last month. she had been kind enough to let me know she had merged it. in truth id forgotten someone else had made the same inquiry, forgotten id said i get some of mine at the dollar store..which i do when they actually have them, but need a much more reliable resource and i want to thank all of you for having provided me with so many leads. i have bookmarked every last one of them so i can really look them over as time permits.
  6. This should be a good resource for you. ← i checked out the site u referred me to and i am somewhat confused..it seems to basically be a site for an upscale trade show? which would be fine were i actually going to attend..but as of yet will nto be attending any trade shows either as a buyer or as a vendor... i was trying to locate an online source for just reauglar cookie type tins( and yes aestetics do matter since this is for my business and not something being sent to just freinds or family for the hoidays..were it just to serve that purpose..it would not really matter all that much... i just think when you are trying to get you online business up and running, you need to find a supplier who does handle these types of tins...and thus far the only thing i have managed to find are tins that are already filled with cookies, which led me to ask where one might find an online supplier of the empty tins... thanks for ya'lls help...much appreciated..just not , i think, what im looking for?
  7. im looking for cookie tins to be able to ship our companies cookies in. does anybody know of a good online source for them?
  8. all the pics looked godo enough to eat..anybody come across any diabetic versions?
  9. nice to see this topinc was so popular last year that it was decided to do it again...hats off to whoever started the thread this year..... i wonder if we will wind up with any where near as many replies as we got last year.....
  10. where does one even get meyer lemons..or for that matter the leaves of meyer lemons?
  11. i would have thought most any cake recipe would be fine ..but personal preference for getting cakes out of the pan much easier for me would be a product called cake release, i think wiltons puts it out but there are other godo ones out there
  12. thanks for the info..i promptly subscribed to it any other info u can send my way would be greatly appreciated
  13. after much time and urging from i have finally decided to take the plunge and open up my own bakery and confections shop.. and i need everythiing from display cases to ovens to cash register to refrigerators and commercial mixers and tempering machines... locations where i can purchase supplies in bulk at wholesale... so any web sites you fine people can provide me with to locate items i need so i can cost this out ...would be great
  14. yes i know about wiltons...have purchased a few of their molds in the past
  15. i dont know if this is the place to post this so if its not im hoping it will be moved to the appropriate forum... however my problem is this: its easy enough to find chocolate molds that have varying shapes and sizes, but what if you find a mold tray that has several different items in the same mold tray and you want to locate molds that have the exact same shape, for instance one of my favortie molds has a cameo rose, but it also has two other items in the same mold sheet, for a total of 12 cavities. now i do like all three of them but want to locate each one in a mold that has just those single shapes.. thus far ive not been able to locate what im looking for. does anybody know of a supplier or some other resource that could take the single mold sheet ive got and create three differet ones, one item per tray?
  16. its called a spackling knife..or a putty knife.....
  17. owrd of mouth is great but will only get u so far and newpapers dont always get around to reviews and when they do...its limited...if the owner wants his place to be a success..he is killing his chances...as we all know if a buisness is going to fold it will do so within the first two years...and recently on foodnetwork i heard that for restaurants its five years....of course one has to do what is needed to insure that thier place does not become just another has been statistic...too much money to sink into a palce just to have it all die.... for lack of care.
  18. i agree 100% and if you had not mentioned bakery supply stores and cake rounds i would have....cake supply stores (bakery supply stores) also carry the kind of boxes you are looking for..they are flat and you have to fit them together..but then again the tabs are there for you to put it together..its all one piece..easy to put together..not rocket science...have fun
  19. ive got one for you then since you mentioned the tightly wrapped cryovaced chickens. how long will those last in the freezer and still be good for?
  20. actually i have heard that you can keep them in the ice box overnight, so long as they sit in water. and to keep them from browning i once heard that you can add a little vinegar to the water to keep them from browning.. that suggestion came from one of the cooking programs on food network. while id love to say that tip came from emeril, i honestly dont remember and ive never tried it. however, if you want get a better fry out of it, one thing i have learned by trial and error is to not only drain the water very well but also toss some into a cheese cloth a little at a time, twist it up so that you can swing it around and nothing will fall out except water. ive also tried that particular method with freshly grated hash browns and it works wonder, though for those i just squeeze the hell out of them because i dont have to worry about breakage, but you will find the method that works best for you
  21. just a thought here but after seeing what you were referring to i dont think that could classify as a wok per se simply because it does not seem to have the shape one would normally associate with a wok. ie the sloped sides.
  22. Discussing food, as the author of this article notes sagely, is often a great ice-breaker. Food is generally a common interest for many and is usually neutral unless it becomes political or judgemental. With that in mind, might I inquire: Do you discuss food with others? Whom do you usually do this with? Is this something one can do with friends and strangers alike? Does food chat add to your knowledge base? Does it evoke nostalgic memories? ← yes i do discuss food with other people, i discuss it with everybody i come across , as the author said its very inoffensive conversation. everybody eats so its a relativley safe topic to discuss with anybody yes sometimes it adds to my knowledge base and every now and then it evokes nostalgic memories
  23. ok suggestion for u here... try your local cake supply stores. often times they also carry candy supplies. that is where i purchase mine all the time. the bonus to being abel to buy them on a local level is that there is no minimum u have to buy and you dont have to pay for shipping either. edited to say oops, i didnt see that you were asking for an online source. oh well......
  24. i know this may sound silly but have you thought about contacting your local home depot? they seem to have a lot of knowledge not to mention so many do it yourself classes, if they dont have that kind of knowledge they are in a positon to possibly know where you can get that information.
