Hey. Being at home is boring, I gotta say. I got nothin
' but answering questions around here.DC said
:"So, you're probably a root beer connoisseur! What is your favorite/what do you recommend?"
One year at my Uncle's house we did a 'blind' root beer taste test. He got 20 different kinds, we tried them all (labels hidden) and believe it or not A&W was the winner. It's a generally good sweet taste that satisfies all palettes, so all in all it's a fine, fine root beer.
If given the choice, I always go with a bottled root beer. It has better flavor, better carbonation. My favorite of all brands (and believe me I've tried a TON) is Henry Weinhard's
. It is the perfect taste with the perfect bite. Really just smooth and tasty. Especially when ICE COLD. Dear lord, I could do with one right now. It's damn hot!Joyce said
:"have you ever tried making those microwave mochi recipes? if you have, did they turn out okay?"Hrm
. I am not a fan of microwave cooking anything. This from the girl who took microwave cooking classes in the 80s. Yes I did. With my leggings and belted sweater, thank you very much. So, no. I have not tried it. Stovetop
, oven, yes and yes. I keep meaning to see if the microwave will be just as good, but I haven't stepped up to the challenge. Let me know.Myra said:Not only do I use box mix, but then I spread can frosting on it and top it with those sprinkles that look like, gasp, polka dots!
Myra. DEAR F*ING
GOD. Step away from the bake mix aisle, please. I will be your personal baker if you'd just stop using that crap. Look at the ingredients
in that can of frosting! Just eat a plate of garbage and call it a day.
...what is the difference between cupcakes, muffins and biscuits?Cupcakes
are basically little cakes. Sweet, moist, delicious. Topped with a well deserved dollop
of sugary frosting* (see above question).
are more bread like. Same shape, same pan, but while they can be sweet, they can also be fruity, savory and nutty. Meaning, you most likely wouldn't eat a bacon onion cheese cupcake, but you would eat a bacon onion cheese muffin. Make sense?Biscuits
are again, bread like, but breads use yeast (someday I will regale
you with my hatred of yeast) biscuits do not. Most biscuits use baking powder or baking soda to give it that chemical reaction. Biscuits are usually soft with a slightly harder crust. I like mine with butter and honey. Some people - usually Southerners eat them with gravy. OH. And fried chicken. OH and mashed potatoes. Damn I am starving.
If you have any more food/cooking questions, send them my way. I'll give you the best answer I've got filed into the useless space that is my head.
