Why Does Ketchup on a Hot Dog Piss People Off?

that's because you understand that people's food tastes are personal and none of anyone else's business. I have never had anyone criticize how I eat my hotdog whether I am dragging it through the garden (everything on it) or having it with just mustard and until I read this column I never knew anyone who practiced this particular form of elitism.

I don't used peas in my potato salad yet they couldn't be as sweet as the miracle whip. and though I find miracle whip too sweet for any use I am not suggesting shooting those who actually like it. let's not get too nuts here.

Why Does Ketchup on a Hot Dog Piss People Off?

sometimes people eat from memory; a hotdog with yellow mustard conjures up a great time at a ballpark with dad;a pleasant emotional break in the crisis cycle we call life not a gourmet moment yet who but you snobs care; no one.

Dandelion greens

you could use them in a green smoothie; very nutritious and as I have stated before they will be the new kale.

Gluten free bread question

the starches some use to make gluten free appear more like the product containing gluten is worse for you than eating gluten unless you suffer from celiac disease.

dandelion green recipes?

I like the bitterness but since you do not blanch them in salt water. all I do with them is saute' garlic in some oil and add balsamic vinegar till heated and pour over chopped dandelions, if large or young shoots if you pick them yourself. sometime I cook chopped dandelion and pour eggs over them and enjoy scrambled eggs with dandelions.

my wife has some problems with her skin and I make a tea out of the whole dandelion, leaves, root, and flowers and in a day or so the rash goes away. when folks discover the nutritious qualities of dandelions I predict they will be the new kale.

in sicilian, I just remembered it is cu instead of con as they use a lot of u endings; I said to my wife when we were in sicily how do they play scrabble without a thousand u's. bella in Italian is bedu, and so on and so forth. beautiful island is sicily. lovely people who were delighted that I had learned sicilian for the trip.

italian easter bread

Mangia Bene Pasta
Colomba di Pasqua (made with baking powder)
(Makes 2 loaves)

6-7 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
5 large eggs, divided
4 ounces unsalted butter, melted
1-1/4 cups milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 hard-boiled eggs
2 dark raisins
Colored sprinkles

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two baking sheets.
From a piece of paper, cut out a dove shape pattern that is 12-inches long from beak to tail and 7-inches wide.

Combine 6 cups of flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
In another bowl, add 4 eggs, butter, milk and vanilla. Beat until well blended.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix with your hands to form a dough.
The dough should not be sticky. If it is, add a little more flour.
Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead it until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
Divide the dough into two pieces.

Roll each piece of dough into a 13-inch by 10-inch rectangle.
Place the dove-shaped pattern on each piece of dough and cut around it. Remove scraps of dough.
Using scissors, make cuts in the tail to resemble feathers and one cut in the beak area.
Push one raisin in each dove for an eye.

In a small bowl, lightly beat the remaining egg and brush it lightly over each loaf.
Place 1 hard- boiled egg in the middle of each dove body.
Cut 2 thin strips 4-inches long from dough scraps. Cross 2 over each egg.
In a small bowl, lightly beat the remaining egg and brush it lightly over each loaf.
Sprinkle the loaves with the colored sprinkles.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the loaves are lightly browned and firm to the touch.
Remove to cooling racks.

I think I also saw a yeast recipe; do you wish to have it,
giacomo

columba pasquale is what my ex wife's family called them and they were from abruzzi; columba means dove and they were shaped like doves

pupa con l'ova or doll with egg (in Sicilian) and I understand how that sounds like buba-glove.

pupa does not mean doll in Italian; in Italian the word for doll is bambola. in Sicilian pupa means doll but that word is a remnant of the french invasion.
