Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Counter Culture Coffee Subscription: tell us how you take your coffee
"On pizza! Wait, sorry, that's been my answer a lot lately. I take my coffee black." —jessie
"I can't BELIEVE you say to use a food processor over a box grater!! To me the texture of a latke is thrown off when using a food processor. Sure it saves time, but how often does saving time produce better results.
As my mother always says, "They're not real latkes if they don't have some Jewish knuckle blood in them."" —Foodosaurus
"Foodosaurus: I can't BELIEVE you prefer a box grater. That's it. Break out the slivovitz. It's time for a drinking contest to see who's right. " —Max Falkowitz
"What the what! How is that not a sodium explosion? This sandwich confused me, like one of those photoshopped images of somebody holding an impossibly large cat in their arms." —Kelly Bone
I usually shuffle off most things that other people try to introduce to my tiny tiny house: Pineapple corer, cute "seasonal" things for dip or cheese (I'm mid-century modern, DO NOT WANT "bundled up snow man" cheese spreaders.), random cute bottle stoppers (like a bottle ever goes unfinished), multiple honey dippers, etc etc.
@Adam from GG--I seriously had a jones for all the Star Wars cooking stuff, then I reminded myself that 1. I don't make waffles and 2. while decorating in a Star Wars theme is sort-of adorable, too much Yoda in the house makes people wonder just how long ago I was able to move out of my parents' basement." —CandiRisk
"May or may not have a mother with a six year old unopened chocolate fountain in her basement. Wink." —lexophile
