I had such high hopes. I found a coupon in a local mailer for a bakery that made cupcakes and wedding cakes. Since I'm getting married in May and I had a coupon, I thought I would check it out. Me and a friend got a vanilla cupcake and a chocolate cupcake. The icing was great. The vanilla was pretty tasty. The chocolate....not so good, but not inedible. Well we were having a girl's night so we decided to order a dozen ($32!!!!) of assorted flavors to test out for the wedding. Some of the flavors were blondie (tasted like dirt), cookies and cream (gray and clumpy), orange creamsicle (dubbed orange A**) and strawberry (indescribable). I'm not exagerrating when I say they were inedible. They were so bad that I wanted to call the lady that owns the bakery and tell her in a nice way that she shouldn't sell cupcakes anymore. What would be the best way to say something like that?
I wanted to make mini sweet potato and pecan pies for our office holiday party. I'm planning on making them in cupcake pans. Should I pre-bake the pie shell, or just bake them all at once? Has anyone tried this before?
Why would anyone use the self clean option on the oven? Has anyone ever used it without feeling like they were about to croak? Every window, fan and door is open and still suffering from smoke inhalation.
P.S. Whatever you do, do NOT put your grill grates in the oven while using the self clean option. The manufacturer says you can, but only do this if you are trying to commit suicide.
Has anyone ever been here (especially in Philadelphia)? What is the food like? Would you recommend a visit for a celebration?
I am supposed to organize a dinner party for my Mom's 50th birthday party in Philly. I haven't lived in Philly for the last 7 years so I am not sure where to go. Everyone gave great brunch recommendations, now it's time for dinner. Please, not so pricey that I'll have to walk back to South Carolina.
Thanks for your help!!
Does anyone know who serves the best breakfast in Nashville, TN? If you know of any good bakeries, coffee shops, or any combination of the three that would also be helpful.
Does anyone have any ideas about what could go into a gourmet gift basket? I'm looking for a gourmet website that sells really unique items as well. I would like to make a gift basket for my best friend's birthday. She doesn't eat red meat or pork and is open to experimentation.
We're having a Housewarming Party/Memorial Day celebration this weekend and wanted to make Soul Food with a new twist. Any suggestions?
