Open Thread: What's the Best Frozen Pizza?

Sample some SPAM!!!

Let's vent, shall we?

Or when a "reviewer" rates a recipe with five stars and comments:
"This looks so yummy! I can't wait to try it!"

Let's vent, shall we?

I laugh at recipe reviewers, also. Once and a while I run across one that the reviewer rates poorly because they followed the recipe, but then they state that they do not like one of the ingredients, such as mushrooms or raisins.

Need NEW Recipes for Lent

No fish here, but good stuff:

Let's vent, shall we?

If you skewer chicken next to fresh pineapple and save it in the fridge for hours before grilling it, the chicken turns into a nasty gum-like substance.

American Classics: Chocolate Buttermilk Pudding

Buttermilk stays good long after the expiration date. No need to use it up quickly or throw it out if it expires.
@tankwatkins-My dad used to drink buttermilk but I've never developed a taste for it in that capacity.

Poll: Fresh or Low-Moisture Mozzarella on Your Pizza?

I use full fat mozzarella. It melts really well and is creamier than the part skim.

Pizza peel slide...what is wrong?

I don't care for the coarse texture of corn meal under my pizzas so I use semolina and a little flour. Parchment paper does work well, though it turns brown at 550 degrees, which is as high as my oven will go.

Cereal Eats: A Disappointing Sampling Of Special K Varieties

I like the Special K Fruit and Yogurt, but I always try to remove as many of the granola-y chunks as I can. It'd be perfect without those.
