  1. Yes, it (enchiladas Suizas) does sound comforting. That's why I was interested in it.
  2. Enchiladas Suizas sound good. I've never had a chance to try. Please post a photo if it's not too much trouble.
  3. @chromedome, have you tried the Wilton (or other) cake strips? Seems like a cool product. (Yes, judging by YouTube videos, seems like the cake strips would help to get an evenly-baked cake.)

    Cook-Off 60: Banh Mi

    It was actually a takeout place. I was just trying to distinguish that sandwich from something homemade. I can understand cilantro (or not) being a deal-breaker for some.

    Cook-Off 60: Banh Mi

    For me, the pickled daikon is essential to the sandwich. I like cilantro in the sandwich, but I've had banh mi without cilantro. (Restaurant ran out of cilantro.) I was disappointed, but the sandwich was still tasty. I survived.
  6. @palo, when you vacuum seal your cheese, do you notice any oil or liquid coming to the surface of the cheese? I vacuum sealed (not on a chamber vac) some Kerrygold Dubliner cheese (cross between cheddar and Parmesan) and it seemed like some oil or moisture got sucked to the surface (of the cheese). (I compared the vacuum-sealed cheese to cheese wrapped by hand in plastic wrap. The hand-wrapped cheese did not have oil coming to the surface.)
  7. I think that White Rabbit edible wrapper was made out of rice.
  8. @shain, have you ever posted a recipe for salad-type tabbouleh? If so, could you please direct us to it? It sounds nice.
  9. If you like the Costco quinoa salad (I do), maybe you can swap out the quinoa for bulgur. This is supposed to be an "authentic" copycat recipe, but if you Google, there are tons more recipes for the Costco quinoa salad. https://www.cleaneatingkitchen.com/quinoa-chickpea-salad/ Maybe bulgur bibimbap?
  10. This is the frozen mandoo / mandu (frozen dumpling) that I posted earlier. The brand is called "Yissine" even though it's not printed on the package. The ones I bought have vegetable filling. It does contain MSG, FYI. Imported by Rhee Brothers in Hanover, MD.
  11. Got interested in jjolmyeon noodles from watching Maangchi videos (YouTube). Jjolmyeon is a chewy noodle served cold. These noodles came frozen & came with packets of sauce. Noodles had a really nice, chewy texture. Sauce wasn't great, sweet without anything to balance it. I will make my own sauce next time. No garnish on this one, but I think nori (dried seaweed) would be good and easy to have on hand.
  12. I bought something on eBay. Afterwards, the seller sent me an email, asking me how I liked the items, any suggestions, etc. I did email her back and said that the items could have been packed better b/f shipping. (I didn't post a comment on eBay.) She emailed me back and said thank you, she was just getting started, etc. I would buy from her again.
  13. Yeah, I think you should be more conservative. As a food consumer (buyer), usually, I don't complain. I would stop buying, though.
  14. Are you getting a whole fish? I wonder what the chances are of getting some shad roe (with the shad). Shad is supposed to be bony. Hopefully, not too hard to remove the bones. Never tried shad and hope you report back on the shad.

    Bastard condiments?

    Pickle salsa looks like it might be tasty in a sandwich.

    If someone could please post a recipe for mujadara, that would be great as well.
  17. I like the Kikkoman "less sodium" (label is green) soy sauce.
  18. Thank you, I'll take your word for it (won't order those bagels).
  19. I've heard about those bagels. I'm tempted to order some. Prices seem reasonable.
  20. @patti, maybe try freezing a few of those peanut butter pretzels (and then eat them frozen). There may be more potential ...
  21. My phone does that, too. Shadow is smaller, but still.

    Lunch 2021

    @BonVivant, everything looks delicious. Where did you get your cool fork and knife?
  23. @Matthew.Taylor, are you wanting to use a single batter mixture (like molten lava cake)? Or are you talking about using two different "batters," the tunnel part being a separate batter that you "layer" / spoon between two "layers" of the main cake batter?
  24. @JoNorvelleWalker, I'll be interested to see some food photos from the Sony camera. Hopefully, you find a good tripod soon. I'm sure you'll figure out how to override the 1/30 second exposure. The halogen light bulbs in the dining room are shining down from the ceiling?
