  1. Mr. Kim loves PB pretzels, so we always have some on hand. The Costco ones are pretty good, but, to our taste, the Trader Joe's ones are excellent. You know how you can shake the Costco (and other brands) nuggets and hear the little PB pellet shift back and forth? The PB inside the TJ's ones are a sticky blob rather than a firm pellet. That all sounds a little repellant, I know, but PB should be sticky and blobby, I think 😄. So, if you have a TJ's near you, you might want to give them a try.
  2. That makes sense. I usually do them in a pan, too, @CantCookStillTry. Unless they have a large griddle, deep frying is the fastest, easiest way to get a lot done.
  3. I had to laugh at the eyeballs, too! I think the schnitzel and beef ribs actually look really good. Yes on plates. Can he take/can you mail him a stack of sturdy paper ones? And that was quite a dollop of guac. I'm guessing a bag of tortilla chips would have been welcome.
  4. I have not made this in years and when I did, I'm pretty sure I used a mix. But Cook's Country (the ATK folks) tested it and came up with a recipe and it's available on Serious Eats. You might get some help there.

    Last night: More Easter ham and egg. On toast with mayo/Gulden's.
  7. Those and tiny grape tomatoes are the only grocery store tomatoes we buy.

    Thank you, ma'am! The magic of the mandoline.

    @liamsaunt– I would do a LOT to have a scallop and a lobster roll. We have two lobster tails in the freezer and Tom Leonard’s has them for $4.99 this week. I’m putting them on the shopping list! I’ll at least have the lobster rolls😁! @patti– I’m “liking” all of your crawfish posts (especially that incredible looking bread), but I know it would probably be too spicy for me. If I ever want to eat crawfish, I think I’d have to order and cook my own. Maybe with Old Bay – if I go easy on it, I can manage that level of cayenne. @kayb – delicious looking Easter dinner!

    @CantCookStillTry – oh, dear! That sausage sandwich! I am so in love with that. And you got it exactly how I’d order it, too. When we make them, that’s what I aim for and mine never look like that. After seeing @Margaret Pilgrim's and @Duvel's Eggs Benedicts, I find myself needing that. I’ve added it to my menu document. I think I’ll be making that for a breakfast for dinner soon. Easter Brunch was kind of retro. We had spinach and artichoke heart dip: It was TJ’s spinach dip that I added some chopped marinated artichoke hearts to. Served with that
  11. Love them. The perfect combination of peanuts and caramel. Even the fact that it's "mockolate" doesn't really bother me. Though, how wonderful would they be with real chocolate. Now that we have Wawa, I can have them whenever I like. They even have mini-packs by the check out.
  12. I know that wafer cookies are old people cookies, but we are old people now😁. Seriously, we found some surprisingly good wafer cookies at our neighborhood Asian market: The wafers are cocoa and the cream is coconut flavored. And these I found at Publix. They are from Northern Ireland: They’re like mini cupcakes, dipped in raspberry jam and coconut: They are really good. The cake texture is excellent.
  13. I apologize for the bold typeface, but I can't seem to get rid of it. @jimb0 – your hot cross buns are beautiful and sound delicious. @Kerry Beal – that bread looks fantastic. I’ve always had (and seen in stores/bakeries in the US) the cross done with a thick glaze after baking. But when I look at British ones the cross looks like yours – piped on before cooking so that it bakes into the crust. Sometimes the entire bun is glazed after baking. I like how your cross becomes part of the bun. @AAQuesada – that table is just exquisite and so Spring/Easter looking!
  14. Well, with your special CSO, you could probably have gotten the whole ham in there 😁.
  15. @Shelby that is a gorgeous ham and the end result looks worth all the trouble. I've never done that in my life and if Mr. Kim sees your post, I may be trying it. Thanks for documenting it.
  16. Wow. And they warn you about letting it get on plastic which is can erode. Sounds dangerous. Smells heavenly. Like some extract femme fatale 😁.
  17. @rotuts - it actually was a bit of a puzzle. I was putting together 4 packets of the things. One for each of 3 grandnieces/nephew and one for Jessica. I cut the whole pan into 24 pieces so each packet got 6. Some stuck together as I picked them up, some didn't, and none of them would line up neatly 😄! Well, my coconut cake for Easter dinner is a little sad: I think I overbeat the batter. It’s hard to see, but there is a definite depression in the middle. I have the bigger KA and sometimes forget that it is more powerful and that I need to hold back on time or spe
  18. We decanted the limoncello on the 1st and chilled it. Tasted last night: We all agreed that it was tasty but needed a little tweaking. It needed more lemon flavor – not sure if that means a few extra days steeping or more lemon zest. Any suggestions? Also, there was a good amount of cheap vodka burn. I used Smirnoff for the first bottle (like Katie suggests) and Ketel One for the second. I think next time I’ll go with both bottles being Ketel One - both Jessica and I are super sensitive to that burn and it did interfere with our enjoyment. We both finished our gl

    @kayb – thank you for the link to the recipe. It sounds wonderful and I’m looking forward to trying. You’re right, of course, without coffee it really isn’t red-eye gravy. But since I detest coffee in any form, it will probably work out well for me. I will even forgive the recipe writer for this spelling: marscapone cheese 😄 Thursday night we picked up dinner from a favorite local middle eastern place: Gyros and falafel. Last night was dyeing Easter eggs. Jessica picked up some Publix chicken and macaroni salad and I made green beans, cheddar grits, a
  20. Made these for the grandnieces and nephew for their Easter goodie bags: Like Rice Krispy Treats, but even sweeter 😄. LOLOLOLOLOL
  21. My SIL lives out in the country and has chickens. This has been the situation for at least 3 years. We just put it together and realized we could get eggs from her when she offered a dozen to Mr. Kim when they were both at his dad's last week 🙄. I adore eggs - all the simple breakfast methods: OM, basted, poached, hard cooked, soft cooked, scrambled, omelets. I also love egg salad, eggs in tuna salad, quiche. Not a shakshuka fan - I don't much like eggs or seafood in tomato sauce. I love that we are getting eggs now that I know are from happy chickens. Her chickens are not eaten - they

    My MIL makes Hot Cross Buns every year and stocks friends and family's freezers with them. This year's batch was especially good:
  23. @liamsaunt – two things I swore I was going to learn how to make when I retired (9 years ago) were croissants and bagels. I haven’t done either, even in a quarantine year, but your bagels are SO inspiring. Yesterday, I made sweet potato rolls to put in the freezer for Easter. The eggs: One is from the grocery store and the other is from my SIL’s chickens. After the first rise: After shaping – 2nd rise in my “proofing room”. LOL: The half bath off the kitchen with a space heater set to 73. Done. Not pretty, bu
  24. So, I had to make a Target run yesterday. I'd put together Easter goodie bags for the grandnieces and grandnephew. I forgot that I needed to do something for the new little guy (5 months and I hadn't met him until today). I thought an Easter board book would be perfect. And these damn things just leapt into my cart: 😁
