Word Play: Do you use food related words when you Scrabble?

Occasionally I use food related words when we play Scrabble. The kids and my husband tease me about it, but hey, if it gets me points why not? I have been challenged on "roux," because it's French, so I had to dig out a cookbook that was totally American to prove that it was a legitimate American word in the kitchen. They were just pissed that it was a triple word score with an"x-word." Some other big pointers in the past have included zest, quiche, whisk and phyllo. So tell me do you have any favorite food related scrabble words? Or any other food games you like to play?
