Unique and Tasty Snacks – Dried Fruit.

June 19th, 2008 No comments

Trader Joe’s is synonymous for unique and tasty snacks.  Here are two I’ve recently discovered.  The Freeze Dried Mango spears look like Steak Cut Fries, but they’re feather light.  And the Rambutan Fruit grows plentiful in Thailand.

Amish Friendship Bread. Is it Worth the Process?

May 30th, 2008 10 comments

When my friend first gave me a Baggie-o-? I thought to myself, I don’t know about this.  I must be honest, the baggie kind of grossed me out, but it was kind of interesting too.  At that time, she also gave me a slice of the Bread she just baked.  It was fantastic. 

Since I look forward to tasting it again, that will be my driving force.  I know that it’s supposed to be good, so I’m continuing the process.  It appears to be sort of a Chain Bread.  I hope mine turns out as tasty as hers. 

She gave me a “Starter” on Day 3 of its creation.  I then had to pick it up from there.  I’ll just need to do a little mashing for a few days, and let air out of the bag, when necessary.

Please Don’t Ask Me What I’m Grilling.

My neighbor walked by when I was BBQing this.  I thought to myself… Please don’t ask me what I’m grilling. 

“Hi neighbor, it smells good, what are you grilling?” 

What would I say?  “UUmmmmm, a halved head of Romaine Lettuce.”  It just sounds so, like where’s the beef.  I didn’t even have anything else to tack on to the answer.  Thank God he didn’t ask 🙂 .  

I’ve loved the Grilled Romaine Salads I’ve had in a few restaurants and wanted to capture that same flavor, so I gave it a try.  And… I HIT IT first attempt.
