    Holiday Venting! Let it all out here!!!

    Seriously, sometimes a person just needs to vent some steam over this Festive Season without involving others IRL, and I thought I'd start a thread...

    I have used a very similar recipe before and use regular milk, but the ratio of milk to eggs is less ( maybe 6 eggs to a half cup of milk). Add some sauteed chopped red and green bell pepper, and/...

    I hate finally sitting down to a meal and the food gets cold before I'm finished eating! We have a rather cold eat-in kitchen and, like Riverfarm, our plate cupboard (actually all of our cupboards)...

    Beth, are you certain that you don't want to make a move up north?!? :p

    We had our first "no show" today. The guy spent 40 minutes with DH on the phone, made the appointment, and zip. No huge...

    This recipe might get DH to tolerate salad occasionally... ;)

    Question- was the mayo flavor noticeable? I was thinking that I might sub plain yogurt to get the creaminess without the mayo taste...

    I'm so sorry that you are dealing with this. We all need those Norman Rockwell-esque families, don't we? You said that nobody else in your family wanted to go to a therapist, but perhaps you could...

    I was embarrassed because I KNEW better than to get all excited and think that it was a done deal. :o

    We had the house off the market for about 3 weeks total, but those were lovely, golden...

    Oh shoot, I just put 4 dozen in the freezer (hope that yours was a fluke!). I would put a dab of smooth peanut butter or melted chocolate in the indentation and replace the kiss.

    BTW, I made mine...

    Thanks for asking, Cafe Latte. I was kind of embarrassed to update the thread. :(

    Thanks! I do have more room in my (extra) freezer right now, so I will pop it in there, then let it defrost the morning of the party-- maybe I won't have to make an ice ring this time. :)

    I had no idea, when I asked this question, that I wouldn't have a chance to read your answers until after the party! :p

    I made way too much punch for a party this past Saturday and, now that there's another party looming on the 20th, I want to use the rest of it then. It's made of lemonade, cranberry juice cocktail,...

    I would keep the pot and rub olive oil into the chipped area as the customer support rep directed (but, then again, I am a rather parsimonious person...) ;)

    Did this damage your tile floor?

    The most basic issue could be the freshness of the yeast. Also, I learned years ago to use the "finger press" method instead of eyeballing what "double" could be (two fingers pressed into the dough...

    The heck with the rice and beans-- eat extra chicken and mole tamales! :) I bought the corn husks to try and make my own, but over a year later am still waiting to muster the courage to do so.
