Never did that but if you roll out your dough thicker and freeze a few minutes before baking you won't have as much spread, plus yes if you need neat edges with a cookies with nooks and crannies along the edge you can't fit a micoplane in there you just cut it again with the cookie cutter right after they come out of the oven.

The Carolina Roadhouse in Myrtle Beach, SC has a delicious House salad. Greens, Chopped egg, almonds, tomatoes, bacon, and ham. But the House Dressing is what is the best about this salad. Honey Mustard and Hot Bacon combination.

I always have a Chamomile, Dried mint that I add to all teas as a loose tea, and a fancy fruity herbal loose tea. I also should add I turn most of my teas into iced tea by adding water to two big pots of stronger tea and when I'm ready to drink I have a homade blueberry symple syrup I add a bit to flavor and sweeten and I have a few days worth of liquid gold at least with the chamomile that is.

No this is Amazing!!!!! I do agree washing out pastry bags are a hassle but the really great use for this tip is the filling of the bags you have to stick it in a cup the fold over half of the bag then spoon in your icing the fold up the bag and push the icing down to the tip. Or if you don't do that you have a mess of trying to fill the bag with the icing and it can get everywhere. Plus you don't get icing overflowing the top of the bag.

I use Silicone Push Pop molds to put ice cream mix in to freeze or I also make fruity pops to but yogurt mixed with a bit of mashed fresh fruit I bet would be great to. You just wash and reuse. I have something like these. http://www.cheftools.com/Norpro-Silicone-Ice-Pop-Makers-Set-of-4/productinfo/06-5419/

I kinda agree I think we should get rid oh the twins, the salt and pepper shakers. We should all move to Sea salt or kosher salt in Cellars and Peppercorns in Pepper Grinders. Sea or Kosher salt tastes so much better and freshly crushed Pepper brings so much better flavor also. Also taking the steps to grind pepper slows you down and makes it less auto pilot to add both salt and pepper to your dishes. If you find you don't need the pepper you have slowed down enough to realize that.

When Blueberry season comes I am going to try dipping them in chocolate but I may also try freezing them first then dipping them when they thaw out they may be like cherries how their is a lot of juice in them or it may just be too messy that way.

I have water diabeties so I drink alot of water throughout the day and I always have a glass or more of water during my meal. I also have a hard time swallowing things like pills and hard foods so I need that water to properly swallow my food. But if I have any soda during the day I often have it during dinner along with a water also.

I have a good looking heirloom tomato, Boston Lettuce, Eggs, bacon from my butcher, and good bread. So I planning a Sandwich ala Spanglish style. But I never made anything other than scrambled eggs or a omelet. I never made a fried egg or anything and I never ate a runny egg yolk before but I am suddenly craving it but im afraid I won't like it.
Oh and I just made purple meringue cookies and I am planning to make a big batch of meat balls for meat ball subs and then freeze the rest for spaghetti and meatballs later this week.

Mine is similar to JordanW but I use a George Foreman Grill it also drains away the grease so I can use it for eggs or save it for later. I close the lid and sometimes flip it. I have the smaller grill so I slice the bacon in half. Clean up is easy after I unplugged the grill and let it cool just a bit I wipe down the lid and grill with a dish rag that is moist after wringing out the hot water. I love that their is no splatter.

You can always inject it with some tastier homemade icing any flavor instead of the tubs of frosting plus your own homemade cake recipe which you can make a extra moist cake. And saves the step of the mixing, rolling, and chilling. You can just bake, inject, insert stick and dunk in chocolate and freeze to chill. Anyway sometimes I don't like the prechewed texture. And doughnut holes and pancake puffs sound fun to.
