  1. Orgeat

    I wanted to make the Milk Street version of an updated Old Fashioned here. But I can't find Orgeat anywhere around here. Is there a suitable substitute for it?
  2. Favorite Soup.

    My current favorite is clickety. As a matter of fact, I have kale on my shopping list for today so I can make up a pot. It is really a lovely, flavorful dish.
  3. Salty Snacks

    I LOVE salty snacks, far better than any sweet. One of my all time favorites is peanut butter filled pretzels...I don't bring them home because I can't leave them alone. BTW, Costco's are the best I've tried.
  4. I came across this one just yesterday. Because I'm such a sucker for any kind of kitchen tool, I actually considered ordering it....I found it available at another site for $75.00 US. However the reviews on Amazon aren't all that good.
  5. I usually grab my 4-½" smooth-edge paring knife.
  6. Recipes that Rock: 2017

    I am going to try both the roll recipe AND the Polish cabbage casserole...that's my kind of cooking!
  7. I lived in Portland for over 30 years but have been here now for 10. I still miss all the great restaurants Portland has though there've been lots of changes over time. There just aren't many good places to eat here. I miss all those ethnic places. It seemed as if there was just so much competition among restaurants that if their food wasn't really good they'd soon be out of business and replaced by something better. Even the food carts were great!
  8. I love asparagus too. This time of year I like to say I could eat my weight in it. Well, seems I try. For me the fat spears are so much tastier than the thin ones.
  9. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Damn, that looks good. Never met a potato I didn't like.
  10. Potato Salad

    Sounds almost exactly like mine except I like to add a couple tablespoons of drained, sweet relish.
  11. I'd put them in the same category as canned spinach. Yuck. Ptooey.
  12. If I were to use evaporated would I need to dilute it?
  13. Yesterday I was making a loaf of sandwich bread and the recipe calls for 1 cup milk. I was almost out of milk and didn't want to make a run to the store and I wondered if I could sub some (diluted?) evaporated milk. Would that work?
  14. Calling all basmati rice experts

    I really like rice a lot. Any kind....(well, brown rice, not so much). Recently I discovered Vigo Spanish rice and it is excellent! Vigo
