I have one too, DL. However, I just make carbonated water without the flavourings. I need lots of water but the bubbles help me swallow pills and things better because of my throat. I have never tried any of the syrups.

How do you "make it your own?"

I mostly use mine to carbonate water too, LP. But I do like the grapefruit, cranberry, lemon-lime soda and gingerale flavors. The gingerale is nice when you're not feeling well.

I am sure there are. But for what I have been exposed to, I do not like the smell.

I will have to try those flavours - especially the ginger ale because you are right, it sure helps when you are ill. I drink a lot of it so this would be cheaper! Thanks, DL!

Yeah. Savory Spice Shop sells at least a dozen different curry spice blends. Indian curry is different from Thai curry is different from Caribbean curry, etc.

DG and LP, have either of you ever had San Pellegrino water? and, if so, how does it to compare to the Soda Stream carbonated water? If you don't mind my asking. I love the SP water but it does get expensive even at BJ's or Costco or Restaurant Depot prices.

I make cakes my own by substituting for wholemeal flour (quite frequently) and always reducing the sugar.

To the best of my knowledge, my husband learned his curry dishes during the time he spent in India. I have no desire to experience the odors of what he cooked and certainly cannot afford to buy expensive spices so that I can cook a food that I may or may not like the aroma of. Spike hates the smell of fish. Any fish! Pirate hates the smell liver. I make it a point to never cook either food when I know they will be in my home. I do not bully them into trying to get used to it. Nor do I try to bully anyone else into smelling or eating a food that they are adamant about disliking. To each their own.

Medtran, I don't think I've ever had SP. I really like my Soda Stream. It's also good in a glass with a packet of True Lemon or True Lime. I just use cold tap water for making seltzer, seems to work fine. They make tons of different syrups, I usually cut the amount in half as I don't like my sodas too sweet.

CharlieD turned me on to making Greek yogurt in the crockpot. It even works with skim milk. I can add my own fruit and sweetener, or use it like sour cream. Good stuff!
