Best Potato Chips

wise come out of penn. so they r close to u in ohio anyway i used to love wise and i recently wrote them a letter of complaint they used to be greasy / salty the last yr or so they are more like everyone else ie utz, lays more dry.
i liked the grease reminds me more of what you would make at home

following cookbook recipes

if a recipes says it serves x people do you believe it
i don't if it says serves 4 i always increase the ingred. to 6 servings for us 4 people . not that we are doubling or tripling it to eat like gluttons but i find many recipes a tad short do you agree or not

Where do you draw the line between loving good food and being an elitist or a food snob?

i am sorry i was not clear about my canned statement sometimes i think something but the mind don't tell the fingers to finish my thought yes i use canned tomatoes what i meant is with the use or lack of use of products likecream of x soups is i don't use prepared stuff the canned tomatoes though in a can are in their purist form (tomatoe water and maybe salt)
sorry for the confusion C-OLIVER i hope i make more sense now thanks

What are you a stubborn purist about?

i am a purist about meatballs
they MUST be beef beef/pork or beef/pork/veal if they got turkey in them i say roll up some alpo cause you can't tell a meatball from dogfood

do you drink LACTAID brand lactose free milk??

as i see here most everyone agrees as to the sweet taste
but for those reading this who may not have tried it
the sweet taste is exactly like regular milk in the bottom of your cereal bowl you know the last spoon or 2 of milk
