    Hello smithgirl. Ask away and some one will answer you for certain.

    Replacing Liqueurs

    I have no answer for you @EmmMax except to say that there are NO dumb questions. We all had to learn at some point.

    Hello @EmmMax. You live in my favorite state (I'm Canadian). My home away from home is Moab. Welcome to the forum. We have a wonderful eG chocolatier from northern Utah, Chocolat. So you'll be in good company.

    Food recalls

    Thanks CD. Are you taking on this task of reporting food recalls for Canada as Toliver does for the USA? If so, many thanks.

    Ultraprocessed Foods

    But aren't these products over-processed if you buy them at a grocery store and thus deleterious to one's health? What the article is missing to me is any mention of the fact that you can actually make all of these products at home from scratch...well, maybe not hot dogs... And there's no 'instant' when you make them.
  10. Good heavens. Exactly what I was going to say!

    Hi Everyone!

    Welcome MichaelB23. I've made only one steamed cake but was amazed at how simple the process is and how well it turned out. Who knew?

    Suddenly came to me. It was ChefCrash in "Baklava, Baklawa". Will do a big Spanakopita next time I guess. But thanks for the information.

    Actually reading the posts from TFTC this morning put me in mind of some earlier eG posts...I think...which I looked for and couldn't find...I think @heidih was in on that discussion...and heavens knows, she knows where all the bodies are buried...about making a full pan of Spanakopita using a whopping amount of phyllo and not buttering the layers, but slashing the full pan and pouring a whopping amount of melted butter over the top. I have to admit that that method appeals to my nature more than the making separate triangles. I'll just cut it before I freeze it. As for working with phyllo...I've had my dear sister-in-law here to show her how to manage with the stuff...and moreover, not to worry when it tears. In the end, it makes no nevermind. Just stick it together with some extra oil/butter and move on.

    I've only made the full dish Spanakopita and would like to try this little triangles method. Care to share your procedure, either of you, @Thanks for the Crepes and @heidih please. @Kim Shook also.
