  1. Very interesting! I'm going to have to try this. Thank you.
  2. Unfortunately I can't get Kool-Aid in Costa Rica. Anyone interested in making some and reporting on the results?
  3. I thought when I heard about koolickles that somebody was putting me on but they are for real.

    They are so soft and yet springy and hold their shape. The best that I have ever made.

    I think that is my problem. I just need to keep mixing it more and sticking it back in the fridge to keep it cold.

    That could have been my problem. I used a sparkling mineral water. It could have been that my mixture wasn't emulsified enough because in order to keep it cold enough I may not have mixed it thoroughly.** It was more the texture of meatloaf with quite a lot of air pockets. **Disadvantage of working in a tropical kitchen.

    Thanks for posting this recipe again. I've made it several times and I'm just not quite satisfied with the texture. Would you clarify again what you mean by soda water. Do you use just sparkling water or is it a mineral water?

    Using @Ann_T's recipe for hot dog buns, I made the best hamburger buns that I have ever made. Don't look like much here but they sure taste good. Thank you, Ann. I've been hunting for a recipe like this for years.

    Thank you Ann. If she doesn't, I would.

    Great minds think alike. Made mine yesterday but cooked it off today.
  11. I really wanted to enter this with my orange teriyaki chicken wings but when I went to the market Monday they had no wings. I had planned to go get wings today but our covid count shot up over 4000 yesterday and I ain't sticking my nose out the door just to get wings. I rummaged through the freezer and managed to find a package of thighs. Can you kind of squint and pretend that they are chicken wings?
  12. It sounds good but I agree, it doesn't reach the right degree.
  13. Ha, ha. I thought that I was the only one that followed my cat's recommendation. I also had a Siamese with gum disease and he would only eat raw hamburger from one particular market. That's the only place that I buy my hamburger now.
  14. I use mine to make stock to add to rice and veggies for my little dog. I do save the raw bones, vegetable peelings and any other vegetables that I can't use up before they will go bad in the freezer for stock.

    Thank you for this recipe. It looks like it may also be exactly what I was looking for to make Argentinian choripan.
  16. I also used to like it with cheese whiz and bits of pimento.
  17. Wikipedia is pretty good for basic biographical information, book reviews, and information on the entertainment world. Other than that, everything else has to be taken with a grain of salt. The problem with Wikipedia is that anyone can contribute their two cents worth and anyone can change an entry to suit themselves. The old complaint about the internet, garbage in garbage out, certainly applies to Wikipedia.

    Having done both I much recommend buying them. If you do get a chance at the fresh, make sure you have somebody show you first hand how to do it. It's not a game for amateurs. And do buy the glove.

    That is unbelievable that you came out of there alive. I'm so glad that you did. Wow! You really have been through it this year. Just take it easy you deserve all the tender loving care that anyone can give you.

    I am so sorry, somehow I missed your post about your accident. I hope it wasn't anything too serious and that you recover quickly. You have certainly been through the wringer this winter so next year has only got to be better. I love seeing all that wonderful food that you cook even though it makes me green with jealousy and I drool all over my phone. Get well soon.
  21. The only thing worse is trying to work in restaurant kitchens designed by these people.
  22. It doesn't really seem to have a pizza crust but if they are trying for pizza 'pie', well, that might look like pie crust. What I really want to know is are you going to take one for the team and try it?
  23. That name intrigues me. Is he jumping over the wall to get to it or away from it?
  24. He is probably one of the main reasons that I am still on eGullet. I just joined to get information on the IP but the further I got down the rabbit hole more that I knew that I wanted to stay. After a few boneheaded starts, the likes and the laughs that I got from Tim encouraged me to continue. Kim's comments hit home because that is exactly the way that I feel. This has become like my second family. The second thing that makes me sad is the fact that when one of our members stops posting, so many times we just have to wonder whether they're still with us or not. I'm not exactly in my Prime so I'm trying to talk my grandson into joining The Forum so that when I shuffle off you'll know that I've got a darn good reason for not posting.
  25. As long as the total liquid in the recipe equals a cup or a cup and a half I think that you should be just fine. I always go for the safe side and figure at least a cup and a half.
