"Starbucks Demands Barista Remove Tattoo or Resign"

She sees a tattoo, any tattoo, and it reminds her of her great grandfather's horrible experience. Good enough reason for her not to want one.

Oh come on. Her meaning is pretty obvious.

I'm not a fanatic about my knives. I mostly use my Globals and I get them sharp enough to do the job. A few passes on the steel and I'm good to go. Actual sharpening about every 3 months.

Giada says Italians like to use breadcrumbs instead of parmesan. Recipe examples?

I have Giada's "Everyday Italian" cookbook and this is the only recipe I could find that uses bread crumbs as a topping. No mention of it being a cheese substitute.

Almost half of the world prefers instant coffee

Zarathushtra: "With an open mind, seek and listen to all the highest ideals. Consider the most enlightened thoughts. Then choose your path, person by person, each for oneself."

Not sure that instant coffee would fall under "highest ideals". Then again, most likely neither would a "great hand-pulled espresso from freshly roasted beans".

Almost half of the world prefers instant coffee

Hi Kaleo,
I'm sure that, given the right circumstances, I'd be right there with you drinking instant. The truth is, when it comes to coffee, I'm a bit of a pain in the ass. I roast my own beans and 90% of the time coffee in restaurants and other peoples's homes doesn't measure up, but I still drink it. Do I enjoy it? Not so much, but it's better than nothing.

any secrets to a great tuna fish sandwich?

A perfect example for the "Simple is Better than Exotic" thread.

I've had one for years. It has a groove around the edges so I like it for juicy stuff. Mostly I use one of my bamboo boards. Those too have their detractors. Neither type ruins my knives and, if they get dull, it's no big thing thing to sharpen them up again.

Where to find an inspired slice of pie?

Not exactly sure what constitutes an "inspired" slice, but maybe one of places has what you're looking for.

Smoking ice cream - any body tried this?

One of these would work well, I think. Very little heat.

What Is the National Dish of New Mexico?

I thought a poblano was the preferred chile pepper for this dish.

Not really sure. I just looked through Google images until I found one that looked "right".

But not in the USA. I don't know anyone who drinks instant "coffee".

searching for great ginger ale

You can't make a Moscow Mule with ginger ale. Well, I guess you could, but it wouldn't be a Moscow Mule.

Egg salad: how many eggs per sandwich?

I love tomatoes, but never on egg salad. If I have it, a few carefully trimmed (no spine) Romaine leaves, but (here comes the possible heresy) I mix the mayo half and half with Miracle Whip. Hey, it is salad dressing!
