Anyone know where I can find calisson molds in the USA?
post #6722 of 7386
Will UNICEF commandos come confiscate your YAMs if you use oval molds?
post #6723 of 7386
I will probably just make them myself. But thanks for the help, A-hole.

Oh, neat! I sure hope they have a depth of around 1cm!

That's probably just the width of the entire tray. No way each mold is 6.9" deep.
post #6728 of 7386
Yea, they just recorded length and width weirdly.

I've had many, many headaches using silicone molds. Is their a general rule of thumb for how much baking time to add to a recipe that's written for more traditional bakeware?

It is the only orgeat I can find that is not artificially flavored -- the Fee's is and it is utter crap. I never even made a cocktail with my Fee's; just tossed it after a fist taste of its awful mettalicness.

go down the list and punishments, it seems that one is not like the others.
1­- Plagiarist has his books yanked after legal settlement. ­- seems like a reasonable conclusion.
2­- Person who like about their background is let go. ­- this is very typical in every walk of life
3­- Person convicted of insider trading goes to jail. ­- hard to argue this one, legal proceeding, punishment obvious.
4­- Person tries to hire a hit man, loses his job, goes to jail. -­ legal proceeding, punishment known. Again, obvious.
5­- Person accused of being a sexual abuser, four years later suit is fired and show cancelled. - ­ I suppose this is the closest, though the accusation of an actual crime and number of accusers makes it different in kind.
6- Woman admits to saying nigger at some point in her life, show cancelled - well, I think you see where I am going with this.

To his credit, it was probably the least hyperbolic thing written on the subject and he didn't go into any of the peripheral accusations or state them as fact, but what I take away is not that there have been scandals, but why is this at all similar.
well, you know i love my matt too inlove.gif but the post you critiqued was a rundown of food personalities who had been undone by scandal. i made no judgments whether such scandals were deserved or not. personally, i find her "food" a lot more offensive than what she said. but TVFN operates by its own set of rules.
i hope the post ed was referring to was the one from this morning. spam[1].gif

I don't know anything about the south, so I can't comment on the recommended one. I also don't know anything about Paula Deen, so I can't comment on her food. I am just tired of people being rooted out like this for having said nigger or having been a member of the Communist party or, God forbid, having gone to USC. It's pretty gross.
post #6735 of 7386
I know we all know this but firing Deen was not about what she said, it was about becoming a distraction, about hurting brand, and about the quickest path to protecting shareholder value.

More often than not I find THAT the more reprehensible behavior by corporate America.

And to Ehkay's question- I admit to watching but the growing artificiality is grating on me. Having worked in broadcasting most of my life, the obvious edits that intentionally mislead in teasers and promos (example: clip of Chopped judge saying "you should be ashamed to put this on the plate... cut to clip of chef with lip trembling... when the reality later turns out that the comment was directed at somebody else)... is cheap and fraudulent... it's tabloid.

That and the completely insular focus on a few of their hand=picked and over-inflated personalities is wearing thin.

I suppose I have held on longer than most in this threak.
