  1. Seamus Blackley, mentioned in the original article, has posted his baking success with the ancient yeast on Twitter: "Tasting History: Bread Baked With 4,500-Year-Old Yeast From Ancient Egyptian Pottery" I'd be interested in the DNA & RNA sequencing to see how different these ancients yeast are from their modern cousins.

  3. "Feast Your Eyes on This $7,100 Hot Dog Couch That Is Currently Being Sold at Your Fave Department Store" That is if your "fave Department Store" is Neiman Marcus. There are photos of the couch and accompanying pillows. It's a snarky article written about an admittedly odd food-related gift.
  4. The proverbial Other Shoe drops: "Whole Foods to cut health care benefits for 1,900 part-time employees"
  5. You're right. I did check this. Their email provides a link to locate used books that have the free shipping. This is the page for searching used books with free shipping: CLICK
  6. Salted cashews from a small vat 'o' cashews I bought at Costco.
  7. AbeBooks.com currently has free shipping. I think it's for the month of September (don't quote me on that). I am not a paid spokesperson for them and receive no remuneration for this mention.
  8. I think there are a couple of different kinds of squeeze bottles. One has a small screen in the hole that is supposed to prevent any water that separates out from the ketchup to not go through. It is supposedly mixed back in as the ketchup is forced through. That may be causing the issue @Kim Shook has with squeeze bottles. The triple-set of bottles I buy at Costco don't have the screen in them...it's just a clear hole.

    Wendy's USA

    "Wendy's has a new breakfast menu. Here's what's on it" They mention the 3 leading menu items in the article, with photos. Wendy's got the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit right, where McD's needs, and is missing, the honey butter in their version.
  10. I recall that, as well. Perhaps the technology isn't affordable, yet.
  11. It did not work for me...and then on a second attempt, it did. Great story! Yeah, Rob! (But no photo of the wonderful drip wall ).

    Subway 2011–

    "Subway Is Officially Releasing A Brisket Sandwich For A Limited Time" Please take one for the team and report back with your opinion of the Brisket Sandwich. In the article they also mention three new sliders they are adding to the menu which may also be a limited-time-only menu thing.

    Taco Bell 2014 -

    How odd,...they get rid of 9 things off their menu and turn around and add something new: "Taco Bell’s Toasted Cheddar Chalupa Has Cheese Baked Straight Into The Shell" It hasn't been rolled out to all Taco Bells. I guess it's still in the testing stages. If it shows up at your local Taco Bell, please take one for the team and try it.

    Food recalls

    "American Beef Packers, Inc. Recalls Raw Beef Products Deemed Unfit for Human Consumption" Harrumph...."erroneously released" my Aunt Fanny. But then that's just my opinion. Product codes are listed in the article.
  22. A new month and new cookbooks on sale...though not very many. You can find the complete listing on Amazon's Kindle Deals>Cookbooks category. Here's some that I found on Amazon, some from a TASTE email and also from a BookBub email: Christopher Kostow's "A New Napa Cuisine: [A Cookbook]" Kindle Edition $1.99US There are two downloadable recipes on this cookbook's Amazon info page. Erin French's "The Lost Kitchen: Recipes and a Good Life Found in Freedom, Maine: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $2.99US "The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook: Plainly Delicious Recipes from the Simple Life" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes and then scroll down to see some of the recipes.

I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  23. Reviving this ancient discussion to post a scene-by-scene recreation of Homer's Food Trip through New Orleans: "Homer, Katrin and Janine Eat Their Way Through New Orleans" They matched the food and even matched Homer's moves. I laughed...and then took an antacid.
  24. I received my weekly email from TASTE (TasteCooking.com) and saw one of the articles was about Jacques Pépin's famous video on how to make an omelette. The article: "When Jacques Pépin Made All the World an Omelet" This is Jacque's video, spoken about in the article: "Learn Jacques Pépin's famous omelet techniques" It's interesting that out of the many videos he made, this one became so well known. I have to tell the truth that when he made the classic french omelette and stirred the eggs in his non-stick skillet with a metallic fork, I cringed. Of course, he knew what he was doing and the fork mixed the egg and didn't scrape the skillet. But I quickly did a search on Amazon for a silicone fork and, yes, they exist. Phew! He may trust his hands but I don't trust mine. Any other Jacques fans out there?
