1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    That I was not a little hungover I'm sure helped.

    After a couple of uses I am going to recommend wood pellet smoker/grills. www.traegergrills.com Anything I can drop a whole chicken on, walk away for 70 minutes, then come back to a perfect chicken is pretty handy in my book. The real test will be when I try and smoke some sausages in a few weeks.

    If I was turning 80, I would not want to eat an oyster out of your pale hand.

    I made baba au rhum a few dinners ago. I poured over a pretty potent Pyrat rum. This time, since I usually make two desserts, I am thinking first a lemon and basil sorbet, and then I am still unsure about the second. Last year I made a St. Honore, which was nice, and the year before a crepe cake. He does not like chocolate. He also has a urinary tract infection.

    Little late to post this, but got a Vitamix and Kitchenaid stand mixer for Christmas. Time to start tackling some more of the French Laundry book recipes.

    I don't think it's just old people! :happy:



    I have truly never understood how this is even possible. I actually feel sorry for these people. I don't mean Cadbury or Hershey or some shit… I mean real, f'g, delicious chocolate… how could anyone not like it?


    Christmas foodie gifts are always fun. My mom got my dad a Romertopf… he's been the mad scientist experimenting with that thing ever since!

    As a rule, I do not like chocolate. I do like chocolate marquise, though, and a few other classic chocolate deserts.

    i'm with the pug. chocolate's ok, but i'd much rather have a fruit-based dessert or something with spice.

    Are there any nice traditional Jewish desserts that I could perhaps improvise upon? He is Jewish.
