Make Your Own Pudding Pops

The biggest problem I have had with making your own juice or yoghurt popsicles, is getting the darn things out of the mold. Any tips?

More Trader Joe's Exposed

They used to have a great bottled [medium Mason jar] Cioppino Sauce and some funky pasta- squares. Love to see that. About 2005-6.

Craigie on Main advice?

Not exactly related but we dropped in to try out the premier burgers-
Okay, not fab. Fries limp, weak in a word: pathetic.
Best thing- homemade ketchup of which we got about 2 TBL worth. Lame.
Overrated, overpriced.
The original Craigie was much cooler...warmer....
Save your pennies and go elsewhere.
Won't name my fave as locals know it but crowded enough as it is!

Help! I Need A Traditional Southern Cornbread Recipe for My Cast Iron Skillet

John Thorne's SERIOUS PIG cookbook has the best skillet cornbread ever!
Skillet Cornbread- 1 8in cornbread

4 oz (about 1 cup) stone ground cornmeal
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp baking soad
1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt
1 large egg
3/4 c buttermilk
1 tbl lard, rendered bacon fat or peanut oil

Preheat oven 425
The Key is to preheat the skillet with the fat or oil, in the over before pouring the batter.
5 min before you are ready for the batter, heat the skillet.
Mix ingredients, pour, smooth, bake 20 min. Remove and flip!
Yum! I am a Notherner but this version beats "ours" hands down! Enjoy!

Just saw your Vernor response-
Sure you are right Prof.
Cel-Ray a good one and I do like Fresca but the old school Vernor's was Special!

Did anyone mention-egads? Tab???? Dr. Pepper is a big one but not mine thought it is tasty_
