Okay, can I use an already blended spice mix? Or does that just defeat the purpose?
LOL, you lost me at "fry your own chips."
OMG, I have no idea where I would get the ingredients for this, but I would love to make it.
And the stereotypes about Texas live on . . . there is nothing more unusual about a "longish vegetarian menu" in Texas (especially in Austin, BTW) than there is about a "longish vegetarian menu" in most place in the U.S., I would bet. I grew up in Pittsburgh. Good luck finding even a shortish vegetarian menu there.
jedd63, it is not the negative comments towards the product so much as it is the "how dare anyone review something not created by artisanal elves bathed in dew drops collected during a blue moon" attitude that I find puzzling.
Um, the review says the author has used it, and used it to make other things. Or am I reading it wrong?
Also, this does not necessarily have to be a calorie bomb--I would bet one made in this would have a lot less calories than one you got at a fast food restaurant.
More importantly, why are people such haters and so eager to comment on products or foods that they aren't interested in? I mean, don't read them if they aren't of interest to you. While I would never buy this for myself, there are a lot of things I would never buy for myself, but am still interested in knowing about. Geez, people. You all need to lighten up.
Wow, Brownsville getting some love! Don't see the Valley touted much in national media. When I have to travel down there from Houston for work, it is always a get in and out as fast as I can trip. Now I will have to slow down and find some of those empanadas de cajeta!
OMG, I had no idea you were not a breakfast taco fan. Does not compute. Since moving to Texas 11 years ago, I have been wondering how I ever lived without them.
Okay, I admit it, I had some of these last week while I was on vacation with my family. They are drinkable right out of the can (I love 8 oz. cans, by the way), if not delicious, and made a passable mixer for vodka.
I love Uchi here in Houston, but I had one of the worst desserts I have ever had in my life there--it was a total failure. I literally wiped my tongue off with the napkin. It was like beet and carrot and onion ice cream or something. Since then, I pretty much skip dessert there, which leaves me more room for all the other delicious stuff they serve.
There is a pizza chain called Hungry Howie's that makes BBQ Chip flavored pizza crust? Did I fall into a time warp, because it must be April 1st already.
I think that cocktail culture just jumped the shark.
Am I the only person in the world who doesn't like burritos? I just don't like a big soggy brick of food, and much prefer tacos. I live in Houston, and while you can get them, they are not on the top of most people's Mexican food list here. There are some dedicated burrito places here (Mission and Freebirds from College Station come to mind), and maybe they have them at Mexican places here, but I have never ordered one.
Surely you meant 8 and not 80. But if it is 80, then I am impressed, too!
I have been making this all summer (our tomato season is actually pretty much over here in Texas) since I discovered my Kroger carries Burrata. Didn't know I needed a recipe!!
Yes, don't you all know that no beverage is worth writing about unless it is brewed from dew drops collected off endangered plant species by elves who live under sustainable toadstools?
Alas, one cannot get a decent bagel here in Houston, so I have to settle for shrimp and grits!
Methinks you are brunching in the wrong places, or maybe non-sweet, not-just-breakfast brunches are more common down here in Houston? This is my "go-to" brunch place, as it is the closest to my house, and it has plenty of options that someone like you would enjoy, but it isn't really unusual for here:
I can't get past the don't like brunch part . . .
Do you also not like breakfast? I am just curious, not trying to be critical.
What kind of pan are the cones resting in??
I have been looking for a "drink-by-the-pint" rose. Bingo.
I have ordered a few from my produce service here in Houston, greenling.com. I too have found the results mixed, but honestly, for one or two nights a week, it is better than eating out. Since I live alone, I find I sometimes (okay, a lot of the times) lack the motivation to cook for just me, but when everything is already prepped, it is a lot easier.
Roast pork, sauerkraut, and potato dumplings.
If you ever make it to Houston, be sure to try Coppa, where Brandi Key is doing great "Italian-American" fine dining.
