  1. Saco seems to be the most readily available powder here, at least I recognize the container. Thinking of just using the amount of milk called for in the recipe, adding some buttermilk powder to the corn meal, and heating it as usual. Since this idea involves some guesswork, I'll start with the most minimal change and go from there. Thanks for all your help. I'll let you know how it all turns out.
  2. Nice to "see" you, too. Hope things are going well for you.
  3. Nice to see your smiling pixels, too. Hope you've been well. Your suggestion sounds easy enough. Any particular brand of buttermilk powder that you prefer?
  4. I have a favorite ATK recipe for corn muffins which involves heating corn meal with milk in the microwave. https://www.americastestkitchen.com/recipes/8205-savory-corn-muffins? If you can't access the ATK recipe for any reason, shoot me a PM and I'll send it to you. I would like to add some buttermilk flavor and tang to these muffins, but I understand that buttermilk cannot be heated as the milk is in this recipe ... buttermilk will break or curdle when heated, Could I add some buttermilk powder to the milk to good effect, or maybe to the corn meal/milk mixture after it's heated? Any other ideas for getting some buttermilk flavor into this recipe? Thanks!
  5. For quite a while, many consumers have been asking Vitamix to offer a stainless steel container. I've written them requesting they offer one. Well, now they have one: https://www.vitamix.com/us/en_us/shop/48-ounce-stainless-steel-container

  8. The cocoa that I've been using for brownies, pudding, and hot chocolate is, to my dismay, no longer available. This has put me on a quest to find a replacement, and one that looks to be ideal for these needs is Bensdorp, sold by King Arthur, which has a 22% - 24% fat content. Considering the high(er) fat content, would this cocoa powder need to be refrigerated for storage of five or six months? Or would refrigerated storage be a bad idea? If not a good idea, why not? Thanks! ... Shel
  9. (Great pics removed to save space) Your pics look great and have made me curious about your recipe and technique. Care to share some more information?

    Interesting ... been going to Costco for five or six years, never saw anything but Pepsi.

    Come to think of it, yes, the texture is a bit coarser than the Costco dogs. Never had a Smokie ... think along the line of Kielbasa

    Polish dogs are spicier ...

    Once every few weeks or so, I visit Costco, and my treat is often a Polish dog. The last time I visited, the Polish dog was still on the menu. My sympathies, Porthos.
  14. Thanks to all for your suggestions. Much appreciate.
