there are places where bartenders cracks ice? Like, off of an ice block?

What's For Dinner? Part XXIV

That sounds good too. I can deal with some messy delicious brownie/cookie.

Wait. So, brownie mix topped with chocolate chip cookie mix? Then baked? That sounds awesome.

Do I want or need an electric griddle?

I never thought I would find a use for one either until I used one at a vacation home. I know making pancakes is easy, but with the griddle it was completely no fail. Never had problems sticking, didn't have to use as much oil, loads of space so you flip freely. I also found it great for making breakfast / fried potatoes. They're simple enough to to on the stove top, but I often find in my largest skillet that I still have a crowding problems. With the griddle, there is so much room for the potatoes to get nicely crispy and brown.

Now all that being said I don't have one at home because I can't imagine where I'd store it.

Turn Juice Into Booze!

Interesting Akitist! I don't know if I'm brave enough to try doing it myself. Thanks!

Akitist - what was your mom's process?

This stuff sounds interesting. I'd try it.

Why is pizza glorified so much?

For me, I grew up eating pizza from the local deliver pizza places and always understood what pizza to be. It wasn't until my first time in NYC that I had actual real pizza, with a great crust, quality ingredient, baked crisp and coal fired. Now THAT is pizza and it blew my mind. Totally different than anything I'd ever known.

Why do so few BBQ joints have mac & cheese?

It's my favorite too. Nothing beats a homestyle plate of mac and cheese. I don't frequent many bbq joints but the one I do has it. Maybe a lot of places don't have it because it's so heavy next to a big plate of bbq? I don't know?

How Do Lefties Peel Vegetables?

Vegetable peelers are probably the last thing I have an issue with. Now, I would love to have a wooden spoon that angles in the other direction though.
