    Yes, doing it like that would have to be an improvement, taxlady. :chef:

    ISO help w/cream-cheese whipped cream

    I e-mailed the editors of Cook's Country about my experience as well. We'll see if they ever respond. :wink:

    ISO help w/cream-cheese whipped cream

    Thanks—that one has a ratio of 4 parts whipping cream to 1 part cream cheese. Sounds about right! :smile:

    ISO help w/cream-cheese whipped cream

    In this month's Cook's Country, there's a recipe for Blueberry Cream Pie. I tried making it, but ran into some serious trouble with the topping. Here's that part of the recipe. ------------------------- TOPPING 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 1 1⁄4 cups (1.75 ounces) sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla...

    Finding decent frozen peas

    Thanks for the info, Dawgluver. This trend is very disturbing. I wonder what the reason is? Are the companies just trying to maximize profits at the expense of quality? Thank you to everyone else who has contributed to this thread thus far too.

    Finding decent frozen peas

    In the past, I don't recall having problems ever finding decent frozen peas. For the most part, I remember the peas being reasonably tender and sweet. Well, a few weeks ago, I bought some Earthbound Farms organic frozen peas. They were plain awful—tough and flavorless. The next week, I...

    Thanks for the update. I'm glad we've learned about as much as there is to know about this contraption. :chef:

    :smile: Thanks—oops, sorry about mixing up your name with hers. That's typical "customer service," unfortunately.

    Well, if we knew what the slanted part was actually supposed to do, maybe we could form a more accurate opinion. :lol: Oh, one more thing. Even though there is a rim at the very end of the slanted part, there are sloping grooves on both sides (see the first photo on Page 1). So, while some...

    He never even asked you first? Or was it his cottage to begin with? That's too bad. By the way, did Gwen from Sterilite ever respond to your last e-mail?

    One thing that's interesting is that there's a pronounced rim at the end of the slanted side of the board (see the photos on Page 1). So, any runoff would basically collect at the rim rather than flow out into a built-in sink draining board. This is definitely a peculiar device. :smile:

    That's certainly possible as well. But then isn't the drain board kind of redundant?

    Thanks—hadn't seen a sink like that before. So that end of the device is used for cutting then.

    Well, my mom loved gadgets. I guess I won't pry then. :wink:

    It's real—no illusion. :wink: I'm still a bit confused, though. What exactly is the "drain board" supposed to be used for? :smile:

    Thanks, dragnlaw, for checking into this. Very impressive. And the time frame fits exactly.

    Making Vanilla

    I just dehydrate vanilla beans for a couple of hours at 150 degrees and then grind them into powder. A lot easier. :) You use half as much as you would extract.

    Maybe they do still make these. This seems to be one example: https://www.sierratradingpost.com/dexas-popware-over-the-sink-cuttinganddraining-board-collapsible~p~9952p/ Here's what I don't get—why would you chop your vegetables before cutting? Wouldn't you want to rinse them in the colander...

    It doesn't say. But I'm pretty sure it was made before 1980. Back then, stuff was often made in Taiwan—not China. :lol: It could've been made in the U.S., though, depending on how old it is.

    Why would it blunt knives? Interesting—same situation as mine. :) It does, thanks. But I'm wondering—how come nobody makes these things anymore?

    It's 8 1/2 inches wide and 20 inches long. Correct. Interesting that so far no one seems to know for sure what it is. :yum: Is it even meant to be used in the kitchen, I wonder? Is it part of some other device that has been lost?

    Good point. I put it in my kitchen sink, and it does fit. However, it doesn't "lock" into place or anything.

    No, it is solid—doesn't open up.

    Really? That's certainly possible. What is this kind of instrument called?
