I hope to be there!!
Oh, yes! I tried way too much of it when in Prague!
My current breakfast fav is Fage 0% mixed with honey, sprinkled with some pistachios and drizzled with pomegranite glaze.
My latest breakfast craze: Fage 0% yogurt mixed with a bit of honey, sprinkled with pistachios and drizzled with pomegranite glaze/syrup/molasses.
Last week I made a beef stew and added the zest and juice from a clementine and a couple of cinnamon sticks. It was the best stew I've ever made!
This is what popped up when I googled:
23022 La Cadena Dr
Laguna Hills, CA 92653
But when you click on the link to the website, it doesn't mention that location. Maybe it's a local sales/distribution office?
I did a search and brought this place up in laguna hills? anyone know anything about them?
They're not in CA, they're located in Tulsa, OK.
I came up with them in a search, too. They must have some sort of facility here, as they've got an address/phone. Next time I'm over that way, I'll drive by and check it out.
I have not been, so make no recommendation:
Downey's Chocolates is in Laguna Niguel on Aliso Creek Road--almost in Laguna Hills.
There is at least one chocolate shop that has opened here in Laguna Hills within the past year. Unfortunately, I can't remember the names/locations nor have I been to them. I'll keep my eyes open and ask around.
Sorry I can't be more helpful--I'm trying to lose weight, thus avoid these places.
This is fascinating to me! They are opening a Tesco near me here in Southern California sometime soon. I've never been in a Tesco, but the publicity that has preceded this opening has touted it as a wonderful place to shop. I'll be sure to avoid the cassoulet and will report back on how the store is received here.
If you're looking for a copy of the user's manual and no one here has one, I've got 2 suggestions. Contact WS and ask them if they can send one. Look on eBay to see if someone is selling one that has the manual. Contact the seller and ask if they will make a copy of the manual and send it to you (you'd pay for the copies/postage). I just had someone do that with a tapedeck I'm selling.
Thanks for fixing the links, Foodie!
Those sites look fantastic, Janet!
I don't know if it is "just me" though, but the links are not working.
If it is just my computer, I'll hunt them up separately. . .lovely stuff.
The links don't work for me either. (Using Firefox.)
Thank you all! I'm passing along the info!
Thanks! It doesn't sound particularly tasty to me, but I'll pass it along to my friend!
I received this message from a friend:My son was stationed in Korea for two years and is being xferred back to the states and is currently home on leave. I asked him what he would like me to have in the house for him while he was home and he requested Banana Milk.
I told him that I never heard of it. I've heard of Banana Shakes but not just plain Banana Milk. He said that it's a common drink in Korea and he's hooked on it.
Does anyone have a recipe that might be reasonably authentic, but with ingredients readily available in the US?
Those of you closer to that area than I, aren't there a couple of Ethopian places not far from there?
And BTW, I second the recommendation of Fora!
If you don't say anything (tactfully) and just don't go back, how will they know that they need to fix a problem?
What kind of food/price range?
Thanks, Katie Nell! Yes, I do know BoBo's, but not the others--haven't been to Topeka in about 2 years. I love Topeka!! My sister and her husband think I'm nuts, but I just think it's a cute little city!
Yes, please talk about all of these places. I've just booked my trip to KC for mid-October. I'll be looking for new places to try*!!
*Including Lawrence and Topeka--my sister lives in Topeka and I'm sure we'll be back and forth.
What happens to the cheese that melts and runs out the bottom of the sandwich?

I like Delaware Market Cafe when I'm there. And while the food isn't always the greatest, I love The Courthouse Exchange in Independence for nostalgic reasons.
All that said, I haven't lived in KC for 30+ years and don't get back there as often as I'd like, so am not as up-to-date as the city.
