  1. I made these discard Rosemary Olive Oil Crackers a couple of days ago. We had them yesterday. Everyone loved them. I sent to rest home with my sister because I can make more. I've always got discard to use and they are truly the easiest thing ever!
  2. Here in Kansas City where everything is up to date, this has been all the rage, though it has moved into the cocktail phase. Topping Bailey's Irish Cream, vodka or whiskey with it. I have not yet tried it, but did buy instant coffee for this purpose. By the time I feel like I'm ready for something like that, I don't want caffeine. Maybe I should have gotten decaf instant coffee.
  3. I made a sweet vanilla biscuit last night--did not really use a recipe, just winged it. Basically a sourdough biscuit with vanilla and a little sugar added. They were quite tasty. I also made these cookies. With the cinnamon sugar on them, they are like snickerdoodles. They were delicious. Sourdough Snickerdoodles
  4. I recently made a bread recipe with the opposite results! It was supposed to be bread dough and looked like that initially, but by the time it has gone through the second rise, it had turned into a batter. I hadn't added anything and can't for the life of me figure out what went wrong. It was a rainy day--can the humidity work its way in and turn dough to batter? Maybe gremlins were at work and they switched your batter with my dough!!
  5. I'm delighted to see this! I know next to nothing about Vietnamese food. We have a fairly new plaza that is filled with little restaurants. I've been dying to go, but was afraid I wouldn't know how to order. This will be a big help!

    Dried Hominy

    I've been cooking that "famous" hominy for several years and have never had that issue. Have you moved recently to a place where your water might be harder? Have you tried dried beans recently to see if you might have the same issue with them?
  7. Our liquor department is in back of the store and is a part of the store--not separate. Probably varies according to state laws.
  8. I am not quitting, though I am also inundated. I often wish there was a Bean Club Lite version with half the amount we receive. Two people just can't eat that much.
  9. I enjoy a cup of herbal tea every evening before bed. I've always bought pre-made blends. Yogi has had a couple that were great. BUT, every time I find one I love, it seems to get discontinued. This thread has inspired me to try making my own blends. Thank you all for sharing what you make.
  10. Thanks to Frieda, I was able to find and try so many foods that I'd never even seen before. RIP 😢
  11. I'm so very sorry to hear this. He was such a vibrant, knowledgeable member here. Many condolences to all his family and friends.
  12. I've never had that happen. Maybe it is the beans you are buying? @rancho_gordo do you have any thoughts?
  13. I can't recall if mine is Braun or Cuisinart, but I've had it at least 30 years with nothing breaking. But, I also do not use it as much as you do.
