Today's NY Times features an article about Peanut Butter and Pckle sandwiches. I was surprised to read that so few people ever heard of them, let alone ate them. I've been eating sandwiches containing Peanut Butter, Sweet Pickel and Mayo between buttered slices of white bread since the 1950s. It's my go-to snack when I'm really hungry.
I know this topic was dealt with a while ago, but I think it needs to be re-discussed. I'm always on the lookout to update what I thought was "the best" so this is a new discovery. I hosted a brunch a few Sundays ago and my son picked up the bagels. They were the best I ever tasted and were from Pressers on Avenue M in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. Pressers is a bakery with a special section just for bagels. I hope others will try them and let me know what they think. A better bagel is not to be found (at least in Brooklyn).
Do you have a secret ingredient? Mine is non-fat dry milk solids sold in boxes containing individual quart-equivilalent packages. I add an extra calcium punch to lots of things I cook in liquids, such as puddings, soups, oatmeal, hot chocolate, as well as batters for muffins, pancakes, and more. When I make macaroni & cheese, I add a package to the water the pasta has cooked in (no draining needed) and, viola, a quart of milk is added, then I proceed with the rest of method (add cheese, butter, sour cream,etc. bake in heavily buttered glass pan, sprinkle w/bread crums). In a pinch, if I run out of milk, the powderd form is always on hand and it's not a bad substitute for coffee. The brand I most often use is Alba.
I've always been proud that the cable carrier I chose was Cablevision because I believed it provided the most channels and best service. But now, the Food Network and HGTV was taken off because Scripps (owners of those shows) and Cablevision cannot agree on financial terms. Consequently, Scripps has dropped those shows, and they say it's permanent!
So, Ina, Giada, Taylor, Rachel, Guy, Bobby, Paula: bye-bye; it was nice while it lasted. I'll really miss you guys.
It seems that many times when I really find a food, general product or magazine (Gormet?) that I really enjoy, it gets discontinued.This happened again. I went to the South Street Seaport last week (I work in the vicinity) looking forward to getting my favorite ice cream, Sedutto. But it was shut down! I contacted the South Street Seaport to see if there were plans to re-open, but they told me Sedutto will no longer be located there.
Does anyone know of a company that publishes a catalog of supplies for the home or restaurant cook? Years ago, I used to order from Maid of Scandanavia, but they went out of business.
