I'm lost in admiration at your use of metaphor. Also I haven't laughed like that in weeks.

I may be in the minority, but...

2 Amys Pizza. I've heard people rave about it but I find it mediocre at best. I'm mystified. What am I missing?

ISO orange flower water & rose water

I've seen rose water at Whole Foods in the spice aisle, but not orange flower water.

No-cry onion methods

I've heard refridgerating the onions for 30 minutes or so before cutting helps, but I keep forgetting to do it, so I can't vouch for it.

Fried Chickpeas with Sage

Thanks for replying, but I don't think I was clear enough. I have three varieties of Smoked paprika: sweet, bittersweet and sweet. They will all add that smoked flavor, but are you trying to add heat as well?

Do you use sweet or hot smoked paprika?

ISO Childhood candy - Help! [moved from Boston board]

I don't know the Boston area but it looks like you can order them online from that site. Wow, I haven't had them in many, many years but apparently I'm still thinking of them...

Could it possibly be these: http://polartcenter.com/Luxury_Cream_... ? I used to buy them many years ago at my then-favorite store--Candyland.
