Do you welcome criticism of your cooking?

I do. It's just i don't currently have a bank account and just prefer to use cash. Plus i've only used amazon once for a cd a while ago and it took forever. Plus i hate waiting for it to come in the mail.

These have been out for a while now but probably the king arthur flour baker's companion cook book, the pie and pastry bible, the bread bible. I've been lusting after those for a while. I just can't bring myself to drop 40 a piece on those though. So i guess i'll be lusting for a while.

Has anyone ever tried this? I have two gallons in my fridge and i was wondering if i could make dulce de leche with just regular 2% milk? I've heard of the condensend milk method and i've done that but i was just wondering so i could use the gallons of milk? Thanks.
