  1. I tried it and was surprised the banana didn't get squished, but I'm not a convert. I'll stick with my own off-beat method.
  2. Not sure if this is wrong or not but i've had people comment about it. I peel a banana completely and discard the peel when I eat a banana. I don't do the classic peel part way, eat, peel more, eat until the banana is finished method.
  3. Is slice & bake cheating? I enjoy Pillsbury Chocolate Chip from time to time. For regular manufactured cookies, probably Oreos or Sandies. I don't buy a lot of cookies. More likely to buy brownie bites or mini-cinnamon rolls if i want something pre-made that's sweet, but it's hard for me to use up those kind of calories on anything but ice cream.
  4. I couldn't resist that one and had a dollar Kindle credit I had forgotten about. If you "Look Inside" the hard cover version, you can see the index.
  5. Celery Seeds but a little goes a long way. Too much can easily ruin things
  6. I bought Pringles Rotisserie Chicken flavor the other day. Not really what I'm looking for when I want chips, but they got the flavor closer than I would have expected.
  7. I have the print version of that book(mine is the 2002 edition). I've culled my cookbook collection a few times since I bought it, and it remains.
  8. I bought a couple of the croissant pizzas (pepperoni and 3-meat.) I've had half of the pepperoni. I usually break frozen pizzas in half and only cook half--wondering if anyone else does that. Anyway, the croissant crust is very different. I've never had a pizza like it, but it's not bad, something I'd probably buy again.
  9. Anyone tried DiGiorno Croissant Crust pizza? I think it's fairly new. I've looked for it a couple of times but haven't found any yet. I usually prefer very thin crust for frozen pizzas, but I want to give the croissant crust a try. .
  10. I had Nissin RAOH Miso yesterday. The RAOH noodles are better than the other instant ramens i've had. Like the other RAOH products i've had, the broth seems a bit diluted for my tastes. I didn't cut back on the amount of water the instructions called for since it was my first time to have the miso variety. Might have been too salty if i had cut back. Still, miso is another RAOH winner, so i'll edit my earlier post to add it to my list of favorites. Changing my verdict on the noodles in that post, too.
  11. Do try Nissin RAOH if you haven't already. I'm no ramen expert, so brucesw is probably right about the quality of noodles in those. My tastes run to spicier, but the RAOH products are some that i will definitely keep buying. I have a packet of RAOH Miso flavor in my kitchen cabinet which is the only variety i haven't tried that is available in the supermarkets here.
  12. I've had a little more than 30 varieties since i started posting on this thread. They've all just been what i've been able to find in the supermarkets or Walmart, nothing exotic. What i've liked best (pretty much in order) are: Indomie Mi Goreng Fried Noodle Indomie Barbeque Chicken Indomie Mi Goreng Hot & Spicy Nongshim Shin Black Noodle Soup Nongshim Shin Noodle Soup Sapporo Ichiban Chow Mein Nissin RAOH Soy Nissin RAOH Miso Nissin RAOH Umami Tonkotsu Naked Noodle Singapore Curry Sapporo Ichiban Original Nongshim Bowl N
  13. Sorry to hear that didn't work out. ATK is pretty reliable, often time-consuming but their recipes usually work. Sounds like they didn't account for real world conditions. If they're only good when they first come out of the oven, that's a problem. I still may give it a try, maybe play around with how long i let them bake.
  14. Not the worst on its own, but the green apple flavor they added to Skittles annoys me. It just clashes too much with the other Skittles. I'm feeling nitpicky today, I guess. LOL
  15. I ran across this on youtube a while ago. It's a method for oven fries from America's Test Kitchen's channel. I haven't tried it, but it looks promising. https://youtu.be/Al4LYwOKsxw
