  2. Food recalls

    Another Romaine lettuce recall: "Romaine lettuce E. coli warning expanded"
  3. What's New in Kitchen Gadgets?

    I thought about waffle cone bowls this morning. I figured the bacon bowl maker could make them, as well.

  5. What's New in Kitchen Gadgets?

    I thought about that, too. But on the page for the silicone mold they show baked cookie "shot glasses", so I'm assuming it'd be okay for the oven.
  6. What's New in Kitchen Gadgets?

    Alton Brown would be pissed seeing another Only-One-Task kitchen item. Though I suppose you could make tortilla bowls, too, with the gadget. I liked this thingy: Cookie Shot Maker I'm thinking you might be able to make Thanksgiving stuffing "shot glasses" with it that could be filled with gravy. The possibilities could be endless...
  7. The same company makes the Valentine's Hearts candy with words on them. It would be sad to see them become a thing of the past.
  8. Currently snacking on Cadbury Dark Chocolate Mini Eggs left over from Easter. They aren't my favorite. I prefer the original milk chocolate version. I did discover this year that they have a "white" Mini Egg flavor (white chocolate), as well, which were very good. I'll have to keep an eye out for them next year.
  9. Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

    I understand the rolling in the powdered sugar before baking. I know there are chocolate crinkle cookie recipes that use the same method. After baking, the contrast of the chocolate and the white of the cracked powdered sugar is part of the "charm" of the cookie. Using this same method for a white-powdered-sugar-on-blonde cookies doesn't strike me as contrast-y enough so it's an odd method to use. As for the "Key Lime Pie" flavor...at least they tasted the citrus, though erringly so. I wouldn't consider it a fail. Just unexpected results.
  10. Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

    Perhaps you could delay the rolling-in-powdered-sugar until after they are baked. That's what I do when I make my Butterball Cookies (click) which are basically Mexican Wedding Cakes or Russian Tea Cookies. After baking, I let them cool completely then roll them in powdered sugar. I let them sit overnight so the butter in the cookies "sucks up" the powdered sugar. Then I roll them again in powdered sugar and they end up looking pretty (and edible). Another thought could be to add lemon zest to the powdered sugar which would also increase the lemon flavor.

  14. Bastard condiments?

    It was in the news this morning: "Heinz Is Threatening to Release 'Mayochup' Nationwide and the Internet Is Torn" Their name for it sucks and is completely uncreative. I preferred some of the names posted in Twitter mentioned in the article. So is this new bastard condiment a sign of the impending Apocalypse?
  15. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I'm swooning over your beautiful egg yolks with no green ring. Were they done in the Instant Pot?
