Which Ice Cream-Haagen Daz or Ben & Jerry's

@PotatoHouse: So, what you're saying is that you value quantity over quality. To me, quality is much more important and always will be. I know that's not the North American way when it comes to food, but it makes me and my body happier, and so that's the way I go. :)

Which Ice Cream-Haagen Daz or Ben & Jerry's

Haagen Dazs. Never been impressed by anything put out by B&J. I really wanted to like them, but their ice cream tastes pretty standard to me.

S'more Bars

This is amazing. I've made it twice in a month. So simple, yet so good. I've made it for potlucks.. always popular.

Chocolate-Dipped Cookies-and-Cream Ice Cream Bars

tried it but it did not work. ice cream melted in the chocolate resulting in clumping. i used hagen daaz vanilla and herseys chocolate. nice idea but more difficult than it looks.

dinner rec's for kamploops

There are few restaurants in Kamloops that I've ever been to and would enthusiastically recommend, unfortunately. I don't mean that there aren't any good restaurants here, but not one springs to mind for a special meal. Kamloops is still a place where the Keg, Boston Pizza, Milestone's, and similiar places are the favorites.

I wouldn't recommend Mino's - you get a lot to eat there, but it isn't very good. It succeeds by virtue of being the one of... what, two? Greek restaurants in town.

Warunee's Thai House on the north shore is quite good, and quite authentic.

Peter's Pasta CAN be good, but it can also be very average. A lack of consistency in quality of food and service is what makes this place only just better than okay.

Brownstone's and Chapter's Viewpoint are the same.

Sanbiki is also quite good, and as the chef is from Osaka, authentic. However, the chef is planning to leave, so who knows what'll happen to that place.

Taka's is not bad, but it is not authentic Japanese food.

There are a number of Chinese restaurants in town, all of which are average. They don't distinguish themselves from one another. If you want Asian food, it's better to go to Warunee's or try Sanbiki's.
