Does anyone LIKE matza?

I love it too. Maybe its a childhood thing. I love it with good butter or cream cheese. I really like the ultra thin whole wheat matza. Its almost nutty. I love matza brei too.

Help. I'm desperate to find this recipe from Cook's Slow Cooker Revoultion.

Disclaimer: This is the recipe I'm looking for, not another version. I made this before and it came out fantastic.

HELP.I own the Cook's Illustrated Slow Cooker revolution book, but cant find it in my house. I need the recipe for the spagetti and meatballs( with sauce). I'm throwing my partner a huge retirememnt party on Saturday and today was the day to make the meatballs. I should have looked for the book days ago.

I'm desperate. I cant find the recipe online. I've made it before, it was fabulous, but I cant remember how I did it.
I just joined the online website and its not there either.
Thanks

ISO baked rice pudding recipe

I made a half recipe of this one, using long grain rice. It was firm, but not as firm as my gram's. I think she might have used evap milk.

Best Happy Hour in Santa Monica

Are you going for the food or the booze? I dont drink, so I concentrate on HH food. Fraiche has excellent food for HH. An amazing turkey burger for 6.00. another burger for 6.00, a truffle burger for 8. Pizzas, mussles and salads. Wilshire restaurant also has some great food on their HH menu.

Is it firm when you cut it? I should have been more clear, my gram's recipe was so firm, you could cut it into squares.

ISO baked rice pudding recipe

My Jewish grandma used to make a baked rice pudding. It wasnt that sweet, and it had raisins in it. Sadly, she passed away before I could get the recipe. Does anyone have a similar recipe?

Diddy Riese: Thumbs up or thumbs down?

How is that brooding over food? I dont like "frozen dessert". I prefer premium ice cream so I wont be buying an ice cream sandwich from DR. I did bring 3 dozen cookies into my spouse's work place( police station). They were scooped up( no pun intended) in a matter of minutes. But ya know, cops will eat anything, as long as they know where it came from. LOL>

"Only in Canada" food items: add to the list

I used to live in Ontario, but now I'm in Socal( from here originally). You can find all kinds of Cadbury bars at Cost Plus. I've seen Nanaimo bars in gourmet markets too.

How Are These Mexican Restaurants in Santa Monica?

The portions are TINY @Border Grill and its very expensive. There is a Living Social deal right now though. 20 for 40.00. Its worth it for that price.

Where can I find non diastatic malt powder?

KA flour has it, but I dont want to spend the $$ for shipping. I use it for my bagels( Peter Reinharts recipe). I live in Santa Clarita. Thanks, Randi

Haagen Dazs Five: high overrun?

I spotted this ice cream( strawberry and caramel) at Trader Joe's for 1.99. Those flavors must be discontinued.

Breyer's ice cream quality (split from Ontario board)

The majority of Breyers that is sold in Canada isnt even ice "cream". Its FROZEN DESSERT and it will say that in tiny letters. The dairy industry in Canada is regulated and thus very expensive. This Bryers frozen dessert is comprised of modified milk ingredients( aka Whey). There is not enough dairy in it to be called ice cream. When I lived in Ontario, it used to go on sale all the time for 1,99 and everyone thought they were getting such a bargain. I wouldnt eat that if it was free. Barf. When I called the company, they said that is what the customers wanted because it had less trans fat. Yeah, right.

Border Grill (Downtown LA) Groupon Coupon -- $40 of Food/Drink for $20

I agree!! I ate with a meetup group using the groupon a couple months ago. The portions are TINY. I wasnt thrilled with paying 21 bucks for 3 tiny shrimp taco's, and less than a half a cup of rice/beans. Thankfully, I didnt have to pay any more than the 20 so it was worth it. I'd never eat there if I had to pay full price.

Where can I find Stone Ground Grits( NOT POLENTA) without mail ordering.

Just like the topic says. When I lived in Canada( I had a PO Box in MI), I ordered from Anson Mills and Hoppin John. Is there anywhere local that sells real Stone Ground Grits(preferably white). I dont want Polenta.

Great Pizza in Santa Clarita - Nick & Joe's

I tried this place 2x. I knew it would close because the new owner didnt seem to care that much. I was right, it closed a few months ago. Shame, Shame Shame. It could have been so great.

We tried it a couple months ago. It was ok. I had a chicken sandwich, my partner had a hamburger. Nothing spectacular.

Where can I find canning jars?

One at a time. I dont think Michael's sells them in a case. Nevertheless, I already bought them at Smart and Final.

Bought the rye last night in Encino. Made an egg sandwich this morning on a toasted slice. FAB!! Thanks. Its a bit pricey though. I might have to learn to bake a rye bread next.
