    Quote:   There's a taqueria in Boston called El Pelon and they've got the best Mexican food I've ever eaten.  Blows Ana's, Chipotle, and Qdoba out of the water... it would be a crime to even compare it to Taco Bell.  I always get the El Guapo burrito whenever I take a trip out there, as...

    Quote:   Working with shortening is so much better.  My grandma makes a shortening-based banana cookie (I've made them many times too) that's out of this world.  Shortening is much more rich in taste compared to butter.  I'm too impatient to wait for butter to come to room temp. anyways. ...

    Quote:   That might result in overcooked crust.  I know that's a good step in making pizza - it's good to 'pre-bake' the dough so it comes out crispier and easier to add toppings.  I think the best thing for pies is to make sure it's all rolled out evenly.  I sometimes cover the outer...

    For my housewarming party tomorrow:     ^None of that canned 'pumpkin' in here!       ^Resting in the fridge overnight.  They'll 'rise' and shine tomorrow morning.

    Pretty soon I'll be posting more pictures because I'm buying my first house!  Instead of a 30 year old Hotpoint electric stove, I'll be using a brand new gas range!  Instead of 18"x18" of counter space, I'll have a real kitchen plus an outdoor grill.  I'm closing in 2 months, so I'll try to...

    What is TheAudioDude baking today?     Here's a hint: it has chocolate in the name, and has coconut between layers.

    Apple coffee cake:     Next time I'll have to use only brown sugar on the top.  White sugar doesn't melt as quickly.

    Quote: I don't think not doing anything happened because you're too much of a good guy, but you just never had the guts to take initiative and make a move.  She probably wanted you but you were too afraid to take action and you missed out (believe me... I've been there).  There are plenty...

    Those tube adapters look great but cost a pretty penny.   I wanted to brag about my latest acquisitions.  I just came back from the MIT swapfest and I got four tubes for $40.  One is a Ken Rad 6SN7 black glass (used), and a pair of National Union 6SN7GT black glass (NOS... been wanting to...

    Quote: Man that looks good... better than mine.    How did you make your sauce?  I think the recipe I used called for too much cream and not enough marsala wine so it was pretty heavy.  Next time I'll have to make some modifications.

    Medication question

    I believe it's around 3-4 days, but to be on the safe side I'd just get a written note from the dentist.  I'm sure they would take your word for it when they test you, but it's always better to be careful.

    Quote: Yep, me too.  I used to watch the Food Network all the time and started cooking about 2.5 years ago (when I got my own apartment) and I've only been baking for around 4 months.   Are those croissants from scratch?  They look great.     Old Pa- Your meals look...
