TJ's seasoning

I am in So Cal and got an email from TJ's yesterday that advertised a seasoning with cocoa powder in it, NOT the one with cinnamon and sugar. It was for meat. Can someone in tell me what it is? The store by me did not have it and had no idea what it was and I deleted the email thanks.

Marinating Chicken Adobo

Thanks Christina...Would the recipe be messed up if I added both pineapple and vinegar?

Marinating Chicken Adobo

Yes, I thought of pineapple as well after I made the recipe the first time. I cant wait to make it again next week. The recipe is for crockpot cooking but I will consider making it in the oven too.

Cliftons Cafeteria article

I just ran across a very interesting historical article about CLIFTONS here in LA. I thought I would pass it along.

MODS I am sure I will be scolded for putting this post here so please tell me where it would properly belong. This cafeteria is exclusive to the LA area so I thought it may belong here.

Cafeterias in LA?

Lemonade

Also Sodexo Magic Cafeteria at the SCE building which may or not be open to the public. It may be worth a call to find out though.

Marinating Chicken Adobo

Thanks. Can I add the vinegar before I cook it? Every recipe I looked at said to use vinegar or rice vinegar. I was especially worried about the vinegar so I am glad you addressed that for me. The recipe is good but I will try and spice it up in the future.

Marinating Chicken Adobo

I made this recipe and I am wondering if I could marinate this a day ahead of time to get more flavor in the chicken as it came out rather bland.

Carls Jr natural Burger

Has anyone tried this burger yet? I went by looking for something new and found this burger. Its a straight up great burger with an old fashion flair and trimmings including a bit of mustard and sweet pickle relish on a fresh baked bun. Tremendous burger, especialy for fast food chain.

Roasting Beef at 500 degrees

I was told the recipe was for prime rib (only?) cook at 500 degrees at 5 min per pound then turn off oven and leave for two hours exactly. I have wondered how it would work with other cuts of beef

White Worcestershire sauce

I was just told it was White Worcestershire sauce. This person is not known for passing down recipes honestly. She eliminates things or "forgets steps" I should have known.

White Worcestershire sauce

What can you tell me about it? I had never heard of it until someone served me turkey meat balls. What are its uses? How does it differ from the regular stuff? Happy holidays everyone.

I am amazed how inexpensive it is, especially on Thanksgiving.

Ice cream sandwiches with chocolate ice cream only

Thanks. Yes it is. What is in Arizona or am I having an old people moment?

Ice cream sandwiches with chocolate ice cream only

Thank you...I did a search from their main website and it shows quite a few locations in my area. I have one question if someone sees this. What is the name of the premium ice cream only available in Arizona that everyone talks about. Doesn't it have a similar name?

Belly Lox

Brents Deli for both the lox and pastrami. I suggest you try the hot corned beef/pastrami plate. For a few bucks more you get far more meat than a regular sandwich, two sides and enough bread to last two more days.

Where can I buy these? All I found online is Blue Bunny which isn't local. I may end up making them myself I guess unless I find a source.

Lemon bars

Thanks again everyone. I had not refridgerated them the night before but they tasted better the second day. Also I added the sugar on top when the bars were slightly warm and it made the sugar melt.

Lemon bars

What kind of pan is best to make lemon bars in? My friend made a great recipe in a 9x12 pyrex pan and the sides of the bars came out brown and crunchy. Can you bake lemon bars in a water bath to prevent this? Would a water bath also prevent hot spots in the oven and promote even baking?

Bungled Banana Bread

The "sinking problem" I had for a long time was solved when I realized that I was melting the butter and should not have been. It should have been softened by leaving it out for a while and then adding it to the sugar and eggs. I hope this helps.
