@spiced ham - great idea and I'd love to, but Adam beat me to it! Take a look here.
That blueberry shake photo is killing me. Why must the nearest Culver's be over 5 hours away? *weeps*
Aeropress over ice with some mint chocolate chip ice cream is pretty much the best thing ever.
@jordanu: there actually was a carrot cake flavor a few years ago (Walmart exclusive). According to this review, it was awesome.
I'll share the idea I passed along on my B&J's trip: "Totally Fried" - cinnamon ice cream with a honey caramel ribbon and chocolate-covered cornflake crisps, like Mexican fried ice cream. Make it happen Ben & Jerry's!
This might be the best Share Your Sweets ever! I love Tipsykit's idea of using the second pizza dough ball for a dessert pizza.
@absolutebrent you are correct. I had the wage/burger cost backwards. It's fixed now.
I have the same question as fusionor. I made this last night and had to add at least an extra cup of stock. Is the 1/3 cup of stock a typo?
@FuzzyWater: you are correct! I have made the adjustment. Thank you :)
GROUP HUG. Bring it in, guys. Those burger photos are truly the most depressing sight I've seen all year.
@ eilonwy: funny you say that because I've never had pineapple on a burger! Maybe my subconscious is trying to tell me something?
@Elizabeth: I share your love of one-layer cakes, a love that was also inspired by my mom. This recipe reminds me of a gluten-free version of our standard family cake, which was called a "Cheap Jack" for reasons I never questioned. Buttercream icing is definitely the way to go. I'd sometimes add a drop of red food coloring to make it look more like a birthday cake.
Does that burger in the top image really have a mini burger speared into the top as a garnish? So adorable. Can't stand it.
@kgavins: thanks for the mini-review!
@Tipsykit37: the cookies and cream were awesome, but I have to give the French toast the edge, since they were more flavorful and I could stop at a small handful. The rest of the sweet Goldfish flavors (and any graham-based cookie, for that matter) only fuels my craving for MORE COOKIES, Teddy Grahams being one of the worst offenders.
@MandyEats: yep, still there!
Thanks for the review (and welcome), Jeremy! I've got to ask about the egg. Was it at least warm? It looks hard-boiled, with a cold, chalky yolk. *shudder*
@dtremit: you may have a point. It's made in Canada, according to the box.
@tea-and-syncope: hmm, that is strange! I just double-checked the box and that's what it says. I used 1/4 cup and it came out perfectly. I'd advise others to do the same.
+1 for ROYCE' -- those ganache squares are awesome! Watch the best-by date though...or they'll start to taste a bit like chocolate-parmesan cheese.
@thekinghermit: I'm going to have to make another trip there. I was so hungry on my initial visit (years ago, at this point) that I remember almost nothing except giving serious consideration to eating my shirt for sustenance.
Lobster ice cream from the Mandarin (Chinese buffet). All the other tubs (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, etc) were half-empty, but the Lobster flavor had only the tiniest indent in it. I wasn't brave enough to try it.
@blythespirit: "Kraft Dinner" you say? I smell a fellow Canadian :)
Spicy, stewy mush FTW! I'm partial to Indian dishes, though. Because naan.
@Damaenon: nope, not a Heinlein reference. We named her Pixel because we are both photo nerds... and she was so tiny and scrawny when we got her that it was a better fit than her other potential name (Toby).
