  1. Found it, it wasn't packed yet. I have a bunch of cookie recipe books that belonged to my mom. I keep the hand-written recipes of hers and my grandmother's tucked in one of them. It was in a stack of books in my bedroom that hadn't been packed yet. May not be any different than the one you used but this is it... 1 cup butter 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 egg yolks 1 tsp vanilla 2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon salt
  2. Nope... not for me. My grandfather put salt on his watermelon, I never found it appealing. Never even considered it for cantaloupe but I've never felt it was missing something either.
  3. That could very well be the case. I have most of my stuff packed up in preparation for moving, it was cheap who-knows-what-origin coffee from the convenience store nearby that tasted distinctly of being a bad decision... but that didn't stop me from drinking it.
  4. Maybe we should have the Jezebel sauce experts have a meeting via private message to see if they can reach a general consensus on what Jezebel sauce is and then get back to us neophytes with the result.
  5. Hopefully this won't cost me my eGullet membership but I don't have a method for buttering my toast. I use whatever butter or margarine happens to be handy at whatever temp it happens to be at and just spread it around on the toast as best I can with whatever utensil I happen to have at hand. Butter is my preference but I'd be lying if I said I never use margarine. I prefer the grease component melts on the toast if I'm going to use jelly/jam, otherwise, I don't really care if it melts or not.
  6. I have no idea what the reason would be. But something I just learned while sitting here reading this while I eat some good quality strawberry ice cream in the attempt to get my freezer cleared out as much as possible and drink a cup of coffee because it's not really warm enough for ice cream here today... for me personally, strawberry and coffee seems to be a combination I might want to consider avoiding in the future. Considering all the other ingredients in the ice cream are coffee friendly, I'm blaming the strawberries for the odd taste overlap I'm getting. But it could just be me.
  7. I've never tasted it either and I'm not going to order pineapple preserves to make it but it was mentioned in an earlier post that apricot can be used as well so that's my plan... whenever I get around to doing it.
  8. As long as it's not Dallas. Yep, that one's even made it as far into nowhere as where I live.
  9. Kinda sad to hear that. I bookmarked the site because it said they can ship most items to most places without trouble. I don't even know if there's anything I want, I'm not up on essential oils enough to be confident about what is or isn't safe to use in a food situation, but I was going to take a peek. But I know there's nothing I want bad enough to deal with import hassles.

    10-days-in-the-fridge uncooked chicken... that wasn't cowardly, that was smart.
  11. I have my grandmother's recipe. If I can find it without unpacking the boxes I've already packed for the move, I'll post it. Otherwise, it may be a week or so before I can get to it. May not be any different or any better than what you're using but you'll be able to tell how it compares to the recipe you used. I don't remember having trouble with them staying together but it's been a while since I made them.
  12. You're really calling up the memories for me now. My grandmother used to make those every year at Easter. She coated the outside with chopped pecans before baking and instead of filling them with jam/jelly, she would mix up a big batch of a relatively thick icing sugar glaze, divide it into smaller bowls and color each bowl a different pastel color. She'd then fill the cavities in the cooled cookies with that and let it set. My mom later took over making them only she did them as part of her Christmas cookies.
