    Cinnamon Ice Cream

    We have mexican food place that serves (really good) apple pie w/caramel sauce and cinnamon ice cream on a sizzle platter so the pie and caramel are really hot and the ice cream is cold! Oh, it's really good.

    Lemon Pasta

    Thanks for the tip!! I will certainly try it. When I cook mine in the stock, the stock thickens and turns into a kind of sauce, it is yum. Also, here's my tip: When cutting the noodles, I use my pizza cutter. It makes it go much faster, at least for me. Thanks hun, Katy

    What goes with porcupine meatballs?

    I agree about the starch thing, but they just taste sooo good w/the garlicky tomato sauce, meatballs and mashed potatoes. Is that a starch faux pas? Maybe, but it's awfully good!!

    Lemon Pasta

    It sounds good to me too. My MIL taught how to make what DH's family just calls "noodles". Eggs and flour, mixed, rolled very thin, cut into thin strips then cooked in very condensed chicken stock. They are good, but I'm not the best noodle maker, so I sometimes wind up standing at the counter...

    MOM'S COOKING: What did you love your mother to cook for you?

    I started thinking of my gramma when reading this thread. She was a great cook who never owned a cookbook and never wrote down a recipe. She's been gone for 25 years but I remember everything she made was top drawer. Unfortunately her eyesight went bad toward the end and she had the...

    Who are professional chefs here? Who are just cooking junkies?

    Not a pro here but...I remember when my son was a baby and my DH was on his way home, I would put him in his high chair and pretend to do a cooking show for him. Even at that young age he knew how hysterical that really was, lol.

    My friend just brought over 2 roast chickens w/lemons and onions inside. Plus mashed potatoes, corn and gravy. Smells great, I may not wait for dinner.

    MOM'S COOKING: What did you love your mother to cook for you?

    My mom never really got the hang of cooking either. Everything was "just a little brown" (translation: burnt). But she did make some mean porcupine meatballs. Yum.

    Anybody out there have a bad back? Yes, this is a cooking question.

    Claire I agree w/freefalling about the extra thick cutting board. I know Boos makes different thickness and the one that I have is about 3" thick. It really helps w/cutting chores. And I also agree w/Breezy about the brace. I had surgery on my lower back when I was in my 20's and I became...

    Organic or Not Organic?

    The only organic groceries I buy are milk, cream and half-n-half. And really the only reason is because they last so much longer in the fridge. My family is very hit and miss w/milk, so it just makes sense to me. Other than that, I've tried organic produce and don't see the big deal. A big deal...

    Help me jazz up plain 'ol Campbell's tomato soup.

    I like stewed diced tomatoes w/chicken stock, worchestershire, lemon juice and salt and LOTS of black pepper to taste. It makes a nice, light tomato soup, perfect for summer. As for cutting the acidic taste, I like to accent it. It reminds me more of a fresh tomato.
