Poll: Which Standard Burger Toppings Do You Secretly Despise?

Lettuce and tomatoes are no-nos for me, but mostly because I have a small mouth. I love cheese and pickles (for the acid and crunch) and loads of others, but I need it to fit in my tiny mouth

Open Thread: What's Your Most Memorable College Dining Experience?

I went to a school where most students lived off campus in apartments surrounding the university, so I never ate dorm food. The best dining I did though, was a dinner group with 7 other students. We ate together 4 nights a week, each cooking once every other week. It was a great way to have variety and not have to cook for myself every day. It also made it easier to eat a balanced meal since we decided as a group to eat plenty of veg and whole grains, with no dessert but fruit.

Bake the Book: Say It With Cake!

My mom's cinnamon oatmeal cake. Perfect for all occasions!

Roommate/College Food Stories

I had a roommate in college that cooked salmon on a George Foreman grill in the bedroom. I didn't share her bedroom, but we shared a walk-through closet. My clothes smelled like fish for days.

I also had a couple of roommates that thought cooking hot dogs in the toaster would be a good idea. Turns out it wasn't. Grease dripped into the bottom and a couple of days later she had flaming toast at breakfast.

This isn't mine, but my grandmother's. She had a roommate from a rural community when she was in college in 1937, that hung a side of smoked pork in the closet, with their clothes. Grandma Ann said her clothes always smelled like meat, but the boys loved it!

Sunday Brunch: Sausage-Stuffed Corn Muffins

We make something like this in mini-muffin pans with Nathan's hot dogs for a healthier (not deep-fried) corn dog option.

My new favorite add-in is Biscoff, but only on weekends, can't do that every day!

We Try 25 Flavors of Coffeemate

I don't drink coffee, but coffeemate is good for other things, like adding variety to hot chocolate or for flavoring/sweetening oatmeal. My favorite is the hazelnut ;)

Muffin or Cupcake?

Muffins are just ugly cupcakes

Taste Test: String Cheese

Target's Market Pantry is my favorite. It's firm and stringy with good flavor.

Cook the Book: 'The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook'

I was always curious about the frobscottle in the BFG, a fizzy drink with bubbles that traveled down instead of up, causing Whizzpoppers (toots!)

Would You Eat Breast Milk Ice Cream?

This milk would be better used by a milk bank for babies with mothers with lactating difficulty, rather than a "shocking" ice cream.

Cook the Book: Quick and Easy Korean Cooking

I'm not very familiar with Korean cooking, but I'd love to know more!

Cook the Book: 'Not Your Mother's Casseroles'

My mom makes a chile relleno casserole that is really yummy and has no canned soup in it.

The Best Cheeses for Holiday Entertaining

What about cheeses to pair with non-alcoholic drinks for us that don't drink?

Sourdough Starter-Along: Day Zero

I have a sourdough question. If you move and take the starter with you, with its flavor change? Will it grow new, local yeasts, or will it retain the flavor of the yeasts from where it originated?

Taste Test: Root Beer

Could you add a diet round? It would be interesting to see how things line up there.

I love gummy tummies from TJs. Especially the seasonal ones.

Autumn Specials: 7 Fast-Food Pumpkin-Flavored Treats

There are pumpkin PopTarts this year too. We got a box just to see, and they are super sweet but do taste like pumpkin pie (with inferior crust, of course)
