You're welcome. Sticking is a good idea.


For some reason my Thanks button isn't working.

I found this saffron at Amazon. It's the best saffron I've had for the price.

I just ordered Maple syrup Powdered and Blackstrap Molasses Powdered from Amazon. I am planning on using for BBQ rub and baked beans. I hope it's good.

Also Burgundy wine powder. I was think of using it in salad dressing to start.

Anyone have other suggestions for using my new acquisitions?

I also spied butter powder on Amazon. I am thinking maybe mixing butter powder, sriracha powder, vinegar powder and blue cheese powder together for a buffalo seasoning for popcorn, chips, fries etc.

No one has a link or a lead where I can purchase powdered caramel? I looked on Amazon but the reviews weren't to good.

I wanted to make a homemade version of dry caramel coffee creamer for my daughter to take to work for her coffee. I found powdered heavy cream but caramel powder is proving difficult. Maybe I'll switch to dry coconut coffee creamer. I found powdered coconut with good reviews.

My favorite store to buy whole coffee beans and loose tea shut down.

Does anyone have a link to a site with a wide variety where I can buy these?

Sorry, I don't know the answer MsM.



I just noticed you have the most realistic Covid kitty mask I've ever seen. Are you selling them?

We've been getting our whole coffee beans from Dean's Beans for about a half-dozen years. Haven't disappointed us yet. The have a very noble business ethic, too, working with the farmers in the coffee growing regions. And when I say "working", Dean goes down to the village and helps the villagers set up fresh water sources, or medical clinics, or schools. Good man.

They have a pretty quick turn-around on your order, too. They batch-roast each variety of bean every day, roasting only what will fill orders (and any retail) for that day's shipment. I usually order in the wee hours of Monday mornings. In spite of apologizing ahead for "delayed shipments", my 10# box (free shipping with 10#, which amounts to buy 9-get one free) showed up on my porch on Wednesday, our normal two-day turn around. Almost still warm from the roaster!

Thank you for the links.

I forgot to say we like flavored whole beans. Also loose teas. I really like rosehip and hibiscus loose teas.

I think that rosehip and hibiscus tea makes a fabulous, cool drink. I usually have some in the fridge all summer. Thanks for the reminder. I like it with nothing added, not even sugar or honey. If you put enough honey, you can convince most kids that it's red Koolaid. I find that useful for kids who don't want anything that's "good for them".

I get a slew of email offers from a place called Bean Box and from a place called La Colombe, but seeing I use a Nespresso machine, I have never looked into either one.

On another note, if you are looking for good quality AP flour and yeast, King Arthur Flour now has flour in 3 pound bags and SAF Red and SAF Gold instant yeast in 16oz vacuum packages.

msm, my go-to for teas has been Harney and Sons for years. I got to meet the wonderful John Harney when I made a spontaneous stop at a little shop with a "Tea" sign out front while driving from OH to MA along Route 44. Even though the shop has now moved to Millerton, NY and John Harney is gone, the tea is still outstanding.

It is excellent tea, I got it on CG's advice! Love the stuff and the selection.
