    Hello Everyone

    Welcome! You should ask your question in the pastry and baking section - you will get a better response! We have lots of excellent bakers here. Good luck!

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    The BBQ bologna at Cozy Corner is the one that still haunts me.
  3. I'm not singling (that word doesn't look right) her out, but it is a good example of what I've seen a LOT of lately: these utterly useless measuring cups. Look at that rippled edge - how in the world do you measure anything accurately with those? I'm seeing so many of these designer measuring cups - clunky, breakable and unusable.

    I love fried bologna! We had a fried bologna sandwich in Memphis that I swear is THE food I think about most often since. And we had some awesome food in Memphis.

    Is it the pasta that is such a vibrant yellow?

    We MIGHT like it. We are not fans of eggplant. But I think it is more the texture than the flavor (as everyone says, it doesn't have much of that). Wish we could get back to the Cupboard! We loved that place!

    Ok, true confessions, then. I'm emboldened to mention that I grew up eating canned corned beef. My mom would slice it and fry in butter to serve with eggs and fried potatoes. I don't do it very much any more, but served with copious ice water, I quite like it still.

    Breakfast! 2018

    Hard cooked (steamed, actually) eggs and English muffins - both with lashings of butter.

    Yesterday's comfort food lunch: Sloppy Joe, my grandma's cheater pickles and crinkle cuts. Fit the bill.

    Oh, dear LORD! That sounds incredible! I wholly approve of the fig jam substitution!!!

    Breakfast! 2018

    Why speechless? My husband has just a few minutes in the morning to devote to feeding himself. This is a product that he'll use maybe once or twice a week. He likes to have some protein in the morning and if there aren't any hard-boiled eggs in the fridge, he'll usually go with yogurt or cheese. This is just another option. And the ingredient list is fairly simple: POTATOES, CHEDDAR CHEESE ([PASTEURIZED MILK, CHEESE CULTURE, SALT, ENZYMES, ANNATTO (COLOR)], MODIFIED CORNSTARCH ADDED TO PREVENT CAKING, NATAMYCIN [A NATURAL MOLD INHIBITOR]); COOKED UNCURED BACON BITS - NO NITRATES OR NITRITES ADDED EXCEPT THOSE NATURALLY OCCURING IN CELERY JUICE AND SEA SALT (PORK, WATER, SEA SALT, SUGAR, CULTURED CELERY JUICE, CHERRY POWDER); CITRIC ACID.

    Add some hamburger meat and THIS is what I was asked to bring to every gathering at a friends house. No matter what delicious treats I brought, her kids ALWAYS wanted this!

    Bragging on Mr. Kim

    Not sure if this is the right place for this post, but it can be placed elsewhere, if needed. Mr. Kim's birthday was in August and he decided that what he'd like to do is to take a class that he'd heard about that would get him certified as a BBQ judge. It was sponsored by Kansas City BBQ Society. The class was at our most local BBQ place – about 5 minutes away. He said it was MUCH more in depth than he thought it would be. And folks were there from all over the East coast. They were very jealous that he was just around the corner. He came home exhausted, happy and FULL of BBQ. Not sure where this will go, but he's thrilled to have done it.

    Bragging on Mr. Kim

    Yep! If it falls off the bone, it's pulled pork - NOT ribs!

    Here's a link to the website with a list of the varieties. A couple of them have green peppers (shiver), so be careful!!!

    Breakfast! 2018

    I can't for the life of me find it, but someone here mentioned using this and said they quite liked it: They had them at Kroger, so I decided to try the potatoes, Cheddar and bacon one: It was actually pretty good. I prefer the potatoes and the bacon to be crisp, but everything was fresh tasting and it certainly couldn’t be easier. And not terrible nutritionally, either. A little high on sodium (440 mg), but good on carbs (3gr). I wouldn’t want Mr. Kim to eat them every day, but a couple of times a week would be ok. As Jess points out, I could put these together myself. But will I is the question!😉 Another morning: Just ham, eggs and Cheddar with some CSO toast!

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    A couple of recent dinners - Baked penne with Bolognese: Extra sauce: Salad: Wonderful ATK Garlic Bread: I've made this before and it makes a little more work than regular garlic bread, but worth it, I think. The real trick is after it has cooked a few minutes on a baking sheet, you flip it over and put another baking sheet on top of the bread and bake a little longer. That really puts a great crust on the bread - almost like grilling it. Shake and Bake pork chops, green beans, candied yams and fried green tomatoes: I no longer apologize for Shake and Bake since @Marlene once confessed that it was a favorite! 😁

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    My sister, niece and 8 month old grand nephew were up from Florida for a couple of days visit. Their first day, I did a sandwich platter with ham, roast beef, cheeses and turkey. I also did this good corn dip with corn chips and tortilla chips: It's just corn, Rotel tomatoes, sour cream and Fiesta Ranch dip mix. Very good. A church friend brings it to our pot lucks and it always is a favorite.

    You might do a scaled down version of this. Meaning - layer your ingredients and top with the mayo and sugar. You could (and should) do it the night before and toss just before serving. Very simple, but very good.

    Favorite Food Quotes

    This is one I need to remember. No one enjoys a meal that begins with the cook explaining how it could have been better if only I'd...

    Breakfast! 2018

    This is something that I've always wondered about. I find a huge difference between the "American" cheese that is wrapped in plastic and the kind that is not - either from the deli or what Kraft calls "Deli Deluxe". I detest the first and find everyone's condemnation warranted. But I like the latter and use it a lot. Anyone else want to chime in on this?
  24. Host's note: this topic has grown too large for our servers to handle efficiently, so it's been split up. Click here for the previous segment. Well, this was lunch with my husband, but there were lots of ladies there! We stopped for lunch after delivering 100 packed lunches to three local homeless shelters at the Starlite Lounge in Richmond. Mr. Kim had a cheeseburger and fries: I had the Country Bennie with sausage in place of country ham and hash browns: Country ham just didn’t seem to go with sausage gravy. It was all really good.
