I have not yet tried any of these recipes, but these seem good.

Creamed (the first recipe uses kale

)

Chard could be added to something such as vegan macaroni and "cheese"

Grinder For Spices, Including Pepper and Salt

I apologize, I did realize that this might have been a repeated question. I read through a couple and they seemed to mention the same thing - that an inexpensive coffee grinders are a good solution.

I think I would prefer something that isn't electric though and I read that there was difficulty in cleaning the coffee grinders.

I apologize that I did not specify my preference for a grinding device that was not electric.

How did people grind spices when there were no electric coffee grinders?

Grinder For Spices, Including Pepper and Salt

Dear Readers,

I would like something that I could use to grind/mill spices, pepper and salt.

I would like to be able to vary the degrees of fineness.

I am considering getting a Peugeot grinder from France; however, I am still uncertain of it and am considering purchasing an OXO grinder in the mean time.

In essence, it seems as though I want a good, adjustable grinder/mill soon.

If its helpful, there is a Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Penzey's, Cost Plus World Market, and Whole Foods, as well as rather average large grocery stores near the area I live.

Help Buying a Milkshake Machine.

Okay, to hopefully clarify, I am looking for the stick-agitator sort of thing.

Help Buying a Milkshake Machine.

Thanks, I don't have an Oster though and I think I would prefer an actual drink mixer/milkshake machine.

I think that it could be considered a type of blender although I would consider that a milkshake machine/drink mixer more of a relative to the blender although I do think that that blenders, milkshake machines, and juicers would all fall under a sort of food processor category, as they all process some sort of food/liquid.

I do have a blender, and I have made milkshakes with it, but I think that a milkshake machine would make a better milkshake; there are other reasons why I would like to have one too i.e. it has an aesthetic appeal and its more quiet than a blender.

I don't know much about the machines nor blenders, but there's a difference in the blades/spinning apparatus with a blender vs. a milkshake machine. Blenders and drink mixers also work at different speeds and blend in different ways too.

Help Buying a Milkshake Machine.

Hello, I am looking to buy a milkshake machine! I'm considering either Waring or Hamilton Beach. I'm not looking for a machine with more than one mixer and not looking to spend over 200 U.S.D., but I would like a good machine that could make a good frothy milkshake if I wanted one or a thick one too; any suggestions?

- Thanks

Vietnamese Coffee in Paris

Thank you all for the suggestions!

I know that this is rather unrelated, but, before I start a new thread, would one of you know where I might find good, inexpensive (I'm not sure what price to expect since I am new to Paris) che (the Vietnamese dessert stuff) in the same area (Olympiades metro)? I have seen it at some stores such as Paris, Big, and Tang Freres, but I thought I would ask.

Thank you,

CHOWEZ

Vietnamese Coffee in Paris

Please,

I would like to know if there are any recommendations for good places to have Vietnamese coffee in Paris, preferably around the Olympiades metro station, but other recommendations are welcome as well.

Thank you,

What does one do with overdone cookies?

One option is to make a milkshake, either thick or thin, using the cookies.

Another would be to make a bread pudding with the cookies.

Coating bananas with cookie crumbles seem like a nice idea too.

Best Baguette in Montreal?

Where are some or where is one of the best places to get a freshly-made baguette in Montreal?

I prefer my baguettes not too crispy.

It's not necessary, but it would be nice if the place sold sauces and other freshly-made breads as well.

I'm vegetarian.

I'm visiting Montreal from November 19th to the 27th

I would prefer more locally-owned-type places over chains.

I would appreciate it if you included the locations.

Thanks.

Any special food from Montreal that I must try?

I'm a vegetarian though, so no meat. I do eat milk-products and egg-products, but not honey.

I would prefer more locally-owned-type places over chains.

I would appreciate it if you included the locations.

Thanks.

Ice Cream/Frozen Custard in Montreal

I am going to be visiting Montreal from November 19th to November 20th

I am looking for really good ice cream places that are more locally owned and not chains, but if the chains are really good I would like to go.

I would like to find a ice cream place with lots of flavors and add-ins.

I really like thick shakes/concretes, but ice cream/frozen custard other ways is good too.

Thanks
