Anyone heard of 'peddled parmesan cheese'??

This is just a guess, but I think the McDonald's chef(?) made the dish with Parmesan "petals", which I've seen referred to right here on Chow ( I'm guessing the ad copy guy heard "peddled" and went with that. Ya think?

How do you keep low-fat sour cream "creamy"

I think you may have hit on something there, mojoeater. There are no additives in Dairy Lite Sour Cream but almost all the other brands I've tried have some modified starch added to them. Although none of us here would ever do it, if you, er, accidentally dipped into the container with your tasting spoon, the tiny bit of enzymes from your saliva could break down the starch that gives those lesser brands their fake creamy consistency.

Almost Summer Pudding

Most summer pudding recipes I've made simply call for "bread" and are utterly disgusting. MMMM. wet bread, sugar and fruit? Yeah that sounds good. Brioche might be slightly better, but I have to agree with crescentcitybaby, pound cake is definitely the way to go.
