Coffee shop owner here!

The soy milk needs oil. At the shop, we use a special kind of soy milk made for coffee/espresso drinks called "blenders." YOU CAN BUY THIS ON AMAZON (link at bottom of comment). The oil in the soy makes it not curdle like this. I think that's why almond and coconut milk generally work better, because they naturally have a little more oil than soy milk. This soy milk doesn't "taste" or "feel" oily at all.

I think the regulating would be fine if they did it for free.

I was going to say Lambrusco too!! It's definitely my go-to summer wine. I don't really like white wines, or even roses, so Lambrusco is a perfect choice. Cool, bubbly, still full of flavor so it ties in well with the meats you're barbecueing up.

I've also noticed that some Lambruscos are a tad sweet. I make sure to ask for the driest one they have, and it's usually not sweet. Go for those.

Can this work with just ALL regular flour? I have everything for this recipe in my pantry except the bread flour and I would love to make these, like, right now.

Can we, as a culture, please please please make this a normal thing? I daydream about sleeping in a separate bed from my husband, and our relationship is no where near "in trouble". In fact, maybe sleeping in separate beds will help me from not hating him in twenty years when he's had 20 years of good sleep and I haven't!

I'm all for it. Especially if we have two queen beds :)

DO NOT GET A PETRIE. Especially in white... it's what I have had for the last three years and I've regretted it since day one! It gets so much dirtier than other couches, you can't take off the covers to wash, it gets super lumpy and old looking in like two months. Just don't get it.
