@Ina - I tried making peanut butter cookies with Speculoos spread.....utter failure. Texture of the spread is totally different when hot.
For some reason never considered brining in pickle juice. I will have to try really hard not to consider brining a turkey in pickle juice this Thanksgiving. I know regular turkey brine could sort of be a pickle brine anyways, but I have some trashy ideas of a 15 pounder brined in leftover Claussen juice.
Bun quality. Obviously good quality meat and toppings are important, but if you can't get through the bun to the rest of the goodness, then what's the point? Nor should the bun just disappear when you bite into it. (I really will be a very biased judge in this battle....The Eatery makes FANTASTIC buns!)
Why the egg whites in the marshmallow?
Love using this thing. And that perfect little hole makes a good resting place for some chocolate chips or nutella.
Fantastic margaritas. And I loved the crab huarache. But the hitlacoche version had WAAAY too much truffle oil drizzled on it. Not a fan. Good in theory, though.
I've had both this and the Guacamole Bacon Cheeseburger, and never have I had light guac. Mostly the guac oozes out all over the place and ends up in my lap or on the wrapper. Still very good.
I always have such high hopes for Sonic, since they are the only place I can get tater tots on a regular basis. However, the one closest to us closed, and the next closest sounds like they have the same cooks as yours. Both the onion rings and tots are ALWAYS too greasy and usually only lukewarm. So I think I'll agree with the above that it very much depends on which Sonic you go to.
That being said, I usually only eat onion rings when I'm craving greasy fast food, and at that point, any of them would be great. :)
Does quiche count? If so, caramelized onion. If not, apple, crostata-style.
ALL of the Starburst jelly beans are my favorite, especially the Fave-Reds bag (which is all reds and pinks) and the sour ones. Lemonheads jelly beans are good too. Sweet Tart jelly beans are randomly sweet or tart, and I don't like playing Russian roulette with my tastebuds. Did I maybe buy one of each of 5 varieties of Starburst jelly beans this year? I'll never tell. :)
Don't know if this will help, but I'd maybe recommend things that you "feel" more than taste. Spicy (though you said this wasn't working), sour and vinegary, or minty. The curry/thai/spicy Mexican suggestions seem like they'd work the best.
Good luck! I've only had dulled taste due to illness, but never lost it completely! :(
Whole Foods is the only place in our area that has a reliably varied produce section. Only place I can find lemongrass, baby beets or dino kale.
Harold and the Purple Crayon. :)
No Influenza Sorbet? Perfect winter flavor.
Clean it like you would a non-stick pan, since that's basically what it is. No metal utensils, no scratchy sponges, no high heat.
Blackberry Cab sorbet. One of the best things I've ever put in my mouth.
One of the best things about Napa is homemade Mexican food in the vineyard. :) Oh, carne asada, how I miss you!
Got really excited for the lemon-chive dressing mentioned in the description........and was disappointed to see a lemon-mustard dressing in the recipe.
I've been following the instructions to make Japanese-style iced coffee by brewing higher strength coffee over ice in my Chemex. Since I'm using less water, should my timing still be 3-4 minutes? Or should I cut it down to 2 minutes? I am using 8 oz water, 8 oz ice, 1 oz coffee, and following the recipe here
Our Trader Joe's just started carrying Idiazabal. I think it's their featured cheese right now.
Do they still make the Michelob Ultra flavors? We used to tease my cousin because he loved the Tuscan orange something. I think all three flavors were probably much worse than Bud Lime.
Neil Patrick Harris.
Sandwiches. In any form. Or any flavor.
@piglet I'll second you on that tomato-white bread sandwich. But you're right, it has to be cheapo white bread. :)
Hands down, it's roast beef, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, pickle, chipotle mayo on a soft roll, either Dutch crunch or soft french.
Ok, or bahn mi. Even the bad ones. ;)
