Earlier in this thread, we had a discussion on Dave's Killer Bread. I bought some more yesterday, but I almost didn't. Right next to it, in a look alike package, was "Eurika" bread. Closer inspection shows the "Eurika" has the same address as a major national bakery. 
 
I remember, about a year ago, when Sargento wanted Kraft to stop making the Kraft package look like Sargento, and I also remember a shoe company that wanted exclusive rights to use red soles on high heel shoes.
 
I wonder how many people get fooled???? I almost did.


You stopped wearing your red high heels???  No wonder I didn't recognize you in Columbus the other day!

My loaf of Killer Dave's was green and fuzzy yesterday.

Keep it in the freezer.  Take out a few slices an hour before you want to eat.  When I buy bread (except MH's Wonder bread that I don't care about) I freeze it immediately.  The baguettes I cut into 4 pieces and the ciabatta into 3 pieces.  Italian loaves just get cut in half.

I freeze my bread too, Lisa. Especially my choices as I don't eat it everyday.

My bride freezes bread and then I throw it away 6 months later

I thought that was the recipe for tofu.

Found a "new" rice that I am really loving. Carolina Plantation Golden Rice. If you live in the Charlotte area you could probably buy this in stores, but those of us out of that area have to buy it via the web. It is a very aromatic rice with a nutty aroma and a unique, almost nutty taste. Vastly superior to the majority of rices you find in stores. Takes a good washing to get the starch off it, prior to cooking, but no more than short grained sushi rice. The rice comes in cloth bags (2#) and is made up of medium grains, some broken grains and a few rice grits. If you're in the mood for an original heirloom rice then give this a try. It's a bit pricey, but well worth the cost, IMO.

Just curious ...
 
Has anyone tried those 'miracle' copper/ceramic pans whose infomercials seemingly run 24/7?
 
Example:
 

 
And, which is the superior product - the "Kathy Smith", Gotham Steel, or Copper Chef?

Every review I read about the Gotham pans has been negative...that everything sticks and that the commercials/infomercials are giving false information. We saw them in Bed Bath & Beyond and I refuse to buy them. I'm happy with my pans!

I have real copper pots and sauté pans.  Bought them from Dehillerin in Paris.  They will outlive me!  I never, ever make soup in any other pot than my copper one.

Well, I'm glad that someone here can afford the real deal!
 
I'm sitting here in Dallas with 'non-stick' stuff from Monoprix.
 
I had hoped that American technology would obviate future overweight luggage charges.

If they don't work, maybe some one from the photography team will post on how they fooled the camera.

If you read the reviews on the As Seen on TV Copper non-stick pans, they all seem to work when purchased and for some time after that.  THEN....  They chip, warp, bubble and stick.
 
My T-Fal with the red dot in the center work really well and I just bought a small Scanpan because it had a cover available for it.  It had better work well for a long time for the price paid!

Yes.  I looked at several You-Tube reviews of each of the 3 major copper/ceramic pans.  None performed as "demonstrated" on the infomercials.
 
The non-stick pans we use are all heavy-duty stuff my wife buys in Paris at Monoprix, a grocery chain.  They perform very well, but they are all 'hand-wash'.

Try the Scanpan.  I bought mine at Sur la Table.
 
BUT... also hand-wash.  If it's really non-stick there should be no reason to have to wash it in the dishwasher.

I just finished a container of Fage Crossovers, coconut curry blended low-fat Greek Strained yogurt with roasted cashews.
 
YUM!
 
The flavor, the texture it's all good!

Found a really yummy Rhode Island classic. Dave's Coffee Syrup. Unlike other coffee syrups out there, Dave's has very few ingredients and all of them are natural. Cane sugar and coffee are the basics. My current bottle also has Vanilla in it. Mixed with milk, this is the Rhode Island classic coffee milk you need. All the others have HFCS in them, and Dave's is the exception to that. If you're ever in the mood for a coffee milk, or a coffee cream soda or a coffee ice cream topping, then go with Dave's. They also sell hand roasted coffee, if you're in the mood for a cuppa Joe.

WARNING!!!
 
The Green Weenies forced Cascade to change the name of their "real" dishwasher powder w/ phosphates.  So, the URL I gave on page 5, #145 is for the crappy stuff that leaves coffee and wine stains.  Do not be deceived like I was.
 
THE REAL DEAL is now deceptively called "Fryer Boil Out". 
 
The "greenies" forced the name change because of guys like me who simply refuse to obey their silliness.  But I'm too smart for those fascist ba$tard$. 
 
Here's the URL for the "good stuff": the original Cascade w/phosphates
 
Fantastic stuff!

Freedom of the press has helped to keep us safe for a few hundred years. Here is some info that "they" would just as soon that the peons would not have access to, but thanks to zillions of posts like Jim's, the news gets out. Like so many posts, it may be true, or it may be not, but it puts the reader in a position to find out for herself. Thanks MetroplexJim!! 



You are welcome.
 
Foolishly, I doubted 'the internet' and ordered the Cascade which turned out to be the same crap they sell in the grocery stores.
 
I gave the 5 huge boxes away to colleagues and ordered the "Fryer Boil Out" which turns out to be good 'ol phosphate Cascade.
 
My dishes, pots, and glasses now GLEAM!
 


How much do you use per load?  I intend on ordering it on amazon.com.




Even though we have 'hard water' here, we fill the bin a little over 1/2 full.  Works great.


I purchased it and love it.  I cannot believe the difference in my glassware







 
Putting on my economist's hat, when the marginal (additional) cost of an activity exceeds its marginal benefit a rational individual (or entity) will cease doing more of said activity.
 
When Richard Nixon first proposed the Environmental Protection Agency I was all for it on the basis that it would be able effectively to 'internalize externalities'.
 
Foolishly, in my enthusiasm, I forgot that "the prime directive" for any bureaucracy is to: 1)  justify its existence and 2) to increase its budget and reach in order to perpetuate itself.  Tragically, this perverse incentive structure will inevitably lead to the pursuit of activities without regard either to their marginal benefits or costs. 
 
Using dishwasher detergent that actually cleans dishes is my "little" rebellion against "Regulation Nation".  Just because some activity is "good" does not mean that it should be practiced endlessly.  That is irrational; just as having concern for my health is a "good" thing, but letting such concerns overwhelm my consciousness would render me a useless neurotic.

A year ago my Cuisinart toaster broke. 
Rather like Mrs. Metro III, it looked very nice, but was useless.
 
As the Princess (Mrs. Metro IV) does not purchase any breads that are pre-sliced, I wanted a toasting device that would accommodate her nearly daily acquisitions.
 
I asked Roadfooders to assist me in my search in this thread, which despite its narrow focus went to four pages of replies!
 
As a result, we bought this model of a Breville toaster a year ago; it has performed - as advertised - magnificently.
 
Truly, this is a "product I really like"!
