Re: treatment of chocolate bar wrappers

...The paper sleeve is then placed just as carefully over the foil and the empty wrapper is to be placed in a tantalizing spot on the kitchen counter or a loved one's pillow. ... Heee heeeeee!

Before making those dreadful peanut butter cookies, we consulted wcpo.com - Cookie Tips: How To Make Cookies Flat, Crispy, Soft, Or Chewy There was no mention of butter vs shortening. ... Too much flour will make the cookie, firm, dry and tough ... Aha! My cookies were exactly that: firm, dry and t...

It means the cookies are made with butter rather than vegetable shortening or that dreaded substance :stinks: m-rg-r-n-. :stinks: I found a site http://www.melindalee.com/cookiedough.html that has some guidelines for how to make chewy or crispy cookies. One of the things for chewy cookies is not to...

Mars bars different in US from rest of world?

Doing a little surfing about mars bars and I came across this site, The Visible Mars Bar Project . (In Canada, Mars Bars are like the UK version, with the "nice nougat") Strange that the same name and wrapper would be used for different things. Apparently the US has a completely different ...

Re: Mars Bars En Croute

I'm just curious, Mrs. Brown - have you ever tried a Mars bar En Croute? I mean, Mars bars taste good, right? OK, so, if it was served (say a small portion) like cannoli , or with a filo covering - wouldn't that tempt you? Why call this "vile"? Mars Bars aren't my favourite, although I sa...

Re: Hi guys

... I'm still not adjusted, and still feel a little lost at the absence of threads ... I really missed the threads at the beginning, but I kind of like it the way it is now. On the main page, you can see which thingies (what are these sections called?) have new posts, and the inside the thingie, th...

Re: Translation Software - Thr Original Was't This Funny!

This morning I was checking google for faro recipes. I hit upon one that the translation had mangled just a bit. I looked a bit closer when the ingredient list called for "1 turnip white woman" and "1 nail of garofano". Have a look http://www.agriturismoitaly.it/english/cucina/a...

Re: spoilers (for talking about movies and books)

You can use CTRL-A to select all the text on a page, if you want to read all the spoiler text without using the mouse or other keystrokes to select it. Using CTRL-A is very useful when a web page has an annoying background that makes it almost impossible to read the text. When you select the text, t...

Re: spoilers (for talking about movies and books)

I have added a spoiler tag for use when talking about movies and books.... :bravo: :bravo: :bravo: :bravo: :bravo: I find the easiest way to use the tags-with-buttons is to type the text, highlight it, and then hit the button. A cool thing about the highlighting of the spoiler text is that the :sto...

cabbage and tortilla salad with peanut sauce

We had this last Sunday at lunch. It wasn't the most beautiful dish, but it was really delicious, and really simple to make. It would expand to large quantities very easily. Chop 1 head of cabbage fairly coarsely. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of salt and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly and ...

Hello fforum ffriends of llizard, ... dinner for 35 to 50 voracious young adult students ... Need more really good vegetarian dishes, and non-vegetarian dishes. Any ideas :idea: ? Falafel might be good. You could use falafel mix and bake them (they taste almost as good baked as deep fried, and you ...
