They didn't freak out like that in Vermont. At all.

I tried to eat french toast recently. Again. It just doesn't agree with me. I end up not tasting anything or too much of something.

Spring, you need a good sturdy bread (challah, panettone, brioche, good pan de mie) that has been left to stale for a few days, and then soaked thoroughly so it's completely custardy inside, with a good caramelized crust from slow even cooking.

I threw it all in the trash.

I had some in a restaurant once that wasn't any of those breads. It was like banana bread that someone fried up in egg and butter. Let's just say it was very very dense and very very nasty.

Maybe I'll give it one more try. One day.

Someone has to make me challah! I keep reading about it from all the exchanges with you and Saria but I I don't really know what it is.


No, describing won't help! I must taste it.....kkkkkk

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

My best guy friend (the straight one!) is brilliant, hilarious, has a heart of gold, would do anything for me and is even gorgeous and from a family with a ton of money so he is able to pursue his artistic endeavors with no stress.

My life would seem so much easier if he and I were romantically inclined towards each other.

((((TRBL)))) I'm so sorry! Being fired is awful, even if it means you don't have to deal with that soul-crushing co-worker anymore.

He said something and I thought about it and came to the same conclusion. If only we could all marry our best friends.

I make awesome french toast. I put vanilla and pumpkin spice in it.
I've tried french toast a few times and just can't seem to get it like I know it should be, it's edible just not *the one*. It's always much better when I get it at a restaurant.

Of course, then they changed the book and suddenly John Krasinski was telling Ginnifer Goodwin he was in love with her! And that freaked me out because it seemed so unrealistic to me.

I rave about this guy to everybody, I couldn't possibly love him more, but I also feel like our relationship is strangely older brother/little sisterly (weird considering I'm a whole eight months older!) He's much more worldly and experienced and I think he looks at me like, "You don't have a father, you don't have brothers, you're a little backwards and innocent, I'm going to be the steady man you can always count on." He's SO protective, over every area of my life (guys/my family/my career).

There's probably, like, eight girls in the world that I would approve of for him, though.

If it was too eggy, lower your proportion of eggs to milk/cream. Try subbing in a few yolks for whole eggs, too.

Kayb, the custard base has sugar, but not as much as a bread pudding. It's not meant to be too sweet because it's going to get served with syrup/powdered sugar/honey/fruit compote, etc. I like vanilla as the main flavoring, and sometimes spices and citrus zest.

My neighbors are smoking. I know because the secondhand smoke is coming into my apartment. What the hell? I wish this were illegal.

But, fortunately, our city just passed a secondhand smoke ordinance that prohibits smoking in common areas, including patios, balconies, and other common outdoor areas in apartment complexes and other public places. Additionally, in 2013, the ordinance was amended to then include apartment interiors, as well. So, a 100% smoking ban in apartments and condos. Having been frustrated with smoking neighbors since moving into this apartment, I just happened to stumble across an article about this ordinance in the local paper and brought it to the attention of our management company once it passed last month. Otherwise, they wouldn't have known about it, at least not immediately. Initially, I took the info to our chickensh*t resident manager, and he promised me he'd pass it on to management...which he didn't. Anyway, they passed around notices yesterday, and I haven't smelled smoke since.

VICTORY!!!!

ETA: I'm not so na´ve as to think that someone won't violate the ordinance, though.
OK, I admit it.....I'm an alias! I wasn't born with the name Honeycurls!

Well, it took about two weeks, but today these finally arrived!



Now I'm really loaded with vanilla! I especially love the sugary, rum-like scent of the Mexican vanilla extract.

So disappointed. I bought cinnamon/raisin bagels this weekend. They looked so yummy. I got them at a local bakery/deli store. They were not made at this bakery but by another bakery. I cannot taste cinnamon while eating them not can you smell any cinnamon while they are toasting. I do not require an overload of cinnamon but I would like to taste at least a little cinnamon. They actually taste like a plain bagel. I am even giving them a 2nd try today. Nope-nothing. End rant.

I am sick and tiered of most people. I just feel that everyone is pretending... Pretending to be good to each other while behind their backs they are actually hating one another. I feel sick to my stomach I feel I am surrounded by fakeness and fallacy

@ Saria: That explains a lot, but I still like mine sweet.
Only now I can stop blaming restaurants.
@ CIBC: No, I haven't. Is this a recent movie? Like November/December recent? I don't think I ever heard about it prior to your post. It sounds like you are lucky to have found such a good BFF. I need to start saying "all the good ones are either taken or our BFF's."
