Kitsa How can McVities taste like someone pressed them together from wet sand and yet have NO DIETARY FIBER IN THEM WHATSOEVER?

They have a grainy grass thing stamped into the top and everything. They're not digestives, they're LIES. (

Kitsa Recipe for the best fucking chocolate glaze ever....

Melt one entire stick of unsalted butter in a saucepan. Don't boil it or get it to the point where it's turning brown...you want to be there right as that last tiny sliver liquefies.

Add in 2 heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, and stir that shit till it's ultra-smooth.

Start adding in powdered sugar, a little at a time, stirring well after each addition. You might use as much as half pound, depending on the purity of the butter and how much it soaks up. Keep adding and stirring. It will start to look like a complete mess...thick, oily paste. When it's so thick it's starting to pull away from the sides of the pan and most of the oily stuff is absorbed, start adding milk a tiny bit at a time. At first the milk will just slosh around the paste, but after a couple of teaspoons it will start to smooth out. Keep adding and stirring until you have the consistency you're going for. I go until it's falling off the spoon in a ribbon back into the pan. Then you have to work fast- if you're covering a round cake, pour it on as you're turning the cake plate. If you're dunking pastries, keep it on low heat and keep stirring to prevent it from setting up. It will dry smooth and glossy and it tastes incredible. Good on eclairs, too.

Kitsa My kid likes Pingu, so Pingu it is. I lucked out, claymation is crazy-easy to do in fondant.

The bad thing about being burned with sugar is that it's sticky. You can't get it peeled off before it starts cooking you, and it's cooking you all the time you're trying frantically to get it off you.

The prettiest croquembouches are dunked in the sugar- sort of a caramel-y, toffee-y kind of thing, stuck together with it, and then sort of wrapped in a cocoon of spun sugar. I'm not going that route. I'm using chocolate this time.

Croquembouche just sounds scary in it's self.

dextire Chicken noodle soup made from scratch. It turned out way better than I thought it would.


And I'm drinking from this way too normal looking can.
Dragonfruit Pepsi!

After assuming "PepsiX" was just a slightly redesigned can for the X factor show, a closer inspection reveled that it was actually Dragonfruit flavored Pepsi!
And while it's tasty stuff, it really doesn't taste like Pepsi at all. It's very fruity, and somewhat floral.

Mike Tobacco I'm eating KFC Dip'ems. Now, I don't typically eat fast food, but if push comes to shove I will grab some fried chicken or order a pizza. The chicken strips themselves are standard KFC-fare, but these new sauces are pretty shitty.

There's this Creamy Buffalo sauce, which is poorly named and has this radioactive orange color that isn't found in nature. And there's an Orange Ginger flavor which was so bad after the first try I seriously thought I tasted it wrong. A second try only proved that my tastebuds were indeed working correctly. Finally there's the Bacon Ranch sauce, that looks and tastes how you'd expect, but had the psychological side-effect of reminding me how unhealthy this whole affair has been.

Kitsa Wrong, you're all wrong.

This is God's Own pancake recipe.

Shrubfest We know because IHOP isn't in the UK. I went to 'The Pancake House' on holiday once. I expect that was a knock-off version. It was mostly weird.
Oct 17th, 2012 01:31 PM
Tadao HOW DO YOU KNOW I'M NOT A HOT ENGLISH PIXIE CUT TEASE?
Oct 17th, 2012 01:18 PM
Dimnos She was supposed to respond before you jumped in with that.
Oct 17th, 2012 11:17 AM
Tadao WELL IT IS INTERNATIONAL
Oct 17th, 2012 10:30 AM
Dimnos Shrub, do you guys have IHOP over there?
Oct 16th, 2012 06:59 PM
Babs I hear at Costco they have $5 vasectomies and they ARE gluten free.
Oct 16th, 2012 03:22 PM
Tadao There is a restaurant called Norms in Cali. L.A. and they makle the best shortstacks. I don't know how far across America they spread but their shit is yummy. Since gluten fucks me up I can't eat them and I recently learned that dinners add pancake batter to scrambled eggs for flavor and filler. Now I have to get my eggs over easy without toast. Fucking dinners and their wheat in everything ideas.
Oct 16th, 2012 03:19 PM
Tadao So do we, but our ingredients are put together for us and we add water and heat. Also other thing.
Oct 16th, 2012 03:16 PM
Shrubfest Oh. Maybe I was wrong about the understanding American pancakes thing.

Oct 16th, 2012 03:11 PM
Tadao Hah, go figure that I love the Panda peanut butter Enviro kids gluten free cereal.

Fathom Zero Grrrrrrrrrrl, if there were a Trader Joes around me, I'd forsake pancakes and load up on Gorilla Munch.
