IC that reading this thread makes me want doughnuts...and lots of them!

I also confess that everytime I make a recipe, no matter what recipe it is, I never seem to be able to make it in the time they say I should. For example, they will say 'fry chicken for 4 minutes on each side until cooked through' and when I do it the chicken is still raw after 4 minutes and I usually cook it for much longer. I have never been able to cook a recipe in the allotted time. Do all these chefs possess magical cooking powers or are they all eating their food half raw?
Don't even get me started on the time I made one of those '30 minute meals' and it took me at least and hour and a half!

IC I love meat! Really, really, REALLY love meat!!! I have some issues with animal abuse and beleive in free range and good lives for animals before they are killed, but they have to be killed (humanely of course)! I love meat. I just ate a pack of short lamb chops..not on purpose, and I planned on adding a vegetable in somewhere, but it didn't happen. It was only seven, and they weren't just huge, but still, a pack is a pack. I love meat.

I know for me, I use refrigerated food. I think the recipes seem to assume room temp food. Maybe that's it? I've heard more than once that meat should actually be room temp before you cook it. Of course, keep it cold until then, but then you are supposed to take the meat out before you cook it. I don't trust that. And I know those recipes SAY they take prep time in consideration, but I don't believe them I've never cut carrots, onions, and mushrooms all together in less than five minutes. Seriously, I'm not on speed. I'm fat. I live in the South. Take it slow, please.

Yes, they're wonderful...but I'm completely nuts for anything caramel, so I'm biased. The chocolate ones are equally good. The website says they're for a limited time, so I imagine after the holidays, they'll be gone.

According to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_(cereal) , Cinnamon Life accounts for a third of total Life sales. I would think it would account for more than half. Unfortunately, the wikipedia article about Life cereal has no references to support its claim.

Raisin Life was discontinued in the 80s. Baked Apple was canned sometime after 2000. Vanilla Yogurt Crunch, and Chocolate Oat Crunch were discontinued in 2008. But Maple & Brown Sugar, and Multi-grain (Canada Only?) appear to be holding on.

I confess I had a wonderful gourmet meal by accident tonight. I didn't feel like cooking so when I picked up my husband Gottfried from work (his car is in the shop), I suggested we go to this hole in the wall Mediterranean/Greek restaurant I found online near his office. Having skipped lunch (no car, too impatient to spend time packing a lunch), he was starving and readily agreed. We find the place at this strip mall and go in to find it's actually very nice and definitely not cheap. I suggested I was OK with leaving and finding something a little more economical (we had just eaten out Saturday night and have the car repair expense looming), but Gottfried was too hungry to postpone eating any longer. The food was so, so good. I ordered steak with a garlic blue cheese sauce on top (hello, food orgasm). It came with some herb steak fries and a veggie mix of squash and fresh green beans. Gottfried had a pasta dish with shrimp, chicken and sausage. He said it was equally delicious. I wish I had my camera with me! The presentation was definitely food porn. We both have leftovers to look forward to tomorrow.

I freaking LOVE Guy Fieri! I am very jealous of you right now, you're so lucky to get to see him! I don't watch any other Food Network show religiously except his (and Unwrapped but that's not a cooking show). I used to like Rachael Ray until she became annoying - her talk show is painful to watch now.

Yes Randi, I took the pics. It's all about the scrapbook you know! LOL!
When I called about seating, they told me that the "accessible" seating was non-folding plastic armless chairs. So I took a chance. They weren't too bad though I was sure to keep both feet planted firmly on the floor - just in case! LOL!

I did a Very Dumb Thing yesterday.

After a long and emotionally draining day at work, I went to my daughter's concert and after that we went out for dinner. I was tired, not well rested, and so ordered chopped sirloin because I wanted comfort food. So far, so good. When the waiter asked how cooked I wanted it, I said, "As little as you can legally cook it" because in the past when I've tried to order burgers rare they said that legally it had to be at least medium rare.

What I got was what I asked for. Basically a raw burger, which was seared on the outside. It was delicious, don't get me wrong. But it was RAW in the middle! I was too freaked out to eat more than a little bit of it, and way too embarrassed to send it back. So it's sitting in my fridge and will be nuked to a safer cooking temperature before I eat it. Even the few bites I had freaked me out, though. I kept waiting for the cramps and diarrhea but I guess I really DO have a cast iron stomach because I had nary a burp.

Next time I'll be less macho and ask for it to be rare or medium rare.

I was tired, not well rested, and so ordered chopped sirloin because I wanted comfort food. So far, so good. When the waiter asked how cooked I wanted it, I said, "As little as you can legally cook it" because in the past when I've tried to order burgers rare they said that legally it had to be at least medium rare.

What I got was what I asked for. Basically a raw burger, which was seared on the outside. It was delicious, don't get me wrong. But it was RAW in the middle! I was too freaked out to eat more than a little bit of it, and way too embarrassed to send it back. So it's sitting in my fridge and will be nuked to a safer cooking temperature before I eat it. Even the few bites I had freaked me out, though. I kept waiting for the cramps and diarrhea but I guess I really DO have a cast iron stomach because I had nary a burp.

Next time I'll be less macho and ask for it to be rare or medium rare.
As a former waitress I can tell you that servers really and truly don't care when people send food back. I've never understood why people are either ashamed or worried we're going to have the line cooks jerk off in your food if you send it back. Anyone in the hospitality business wants you to leave having had a positive experience and we want to be told if that didn't happen. I used to have burgers sent back all the time, usually because "medium" or "medium/well" means different things to different patrons, but it was never a problem.

I am not a big fan of Hershey's kisses (or Hershey's chocolate in general) but some of their wacky varieties nowadays catch my eye.

That said, their Candy Cane flavor doesn't suck!

p.s. Yeah, I like it. Go figure

I spent over $250 on chocolate today.













No, not all of it's for me. Sorry.

There's a local candymaker here called Morley. They also are combined with a company known for their ice cream, hot fudge, and bumpy cake called Sanders. I had to get presents for my staff members, so I ended up with:

8 of these, gift wrapped, with a full size chocolate bar attached that has gold paper with a metallic gold "Happy Holidays" on it:


8 of these, also gift wrapped with the special chocolate bar:


7 large Hammond Candy candy canes for staff members that aren't technically mine but have offices or classrooms in my building:


3 mini jars of Sanders ice cream topping in Milk Chocolate Hot Fudge [love this way more than normal hot fudge], Caramel Apple, and Swiss Dark Fudge.... this is just to show you one of the packages that I had to resist getting:


And this for myself, as I love love love nonpareils:

Wow. I should have known you'd be able to provide photo evidence. Incredible. Lucky coworkers!
