Where the true players at?

Answers to your questions!

You mentioned before that you don't like the "McCormick/Schilling vanilla crap." What kind do you recommend?

My favorite vanilla happens to be from Nielsen-Massey. It's good pure stuff, whose quality you can smell and taste. There are tons of different varieties, Mexican, Tahitian. My favorite is Madagascar Bourbon. Sure it's pricey, but well worth it. Your baked goods will thank you.

Why did the frozen scallops I cooked last night have, like, little rocks or calcifications or something in them?
Well, scallops are sensitive. They cry when they watch Steel Magnolias. Then again, who doesn't? What I really mean is, they get tough if you cook 'em too long. So watch it. My advice? Wrap 'em in bacon. Everything's Better With Bacon. (Yes, I own that book.)

Why is mochi ice cream so delicious? I am addicted...

For some reason my normally insatiable desire for ice cream...has waned. ~insert loud gasp here~ Mochi ice cream - coffee of course - is still favorable. Why is it so delicious? Two words. Mochi. And ice cream. 'Nough said.

What have you cooked for dinner recently that you haven't posted?

Funny you should ask, one of my favorite recipes is this Summer Pasta. However, I recently made penne pasta for the boys, and I bought these ADORRRAABLE food trays from Pottery Barn Kids. Yes, it kinda feels like we eat in an old folks home, but who cares. Cute little compartments for EVERYTHING!! Whee! My mind whirls at the thoughts of all the things I can put in each one. I try my best to get the basic food groups in there for the kids, but it doesn't always happen.
It's amazing how plates can inspire me to cook. Which is why I drool at Crate and Barrel and Fishs Eddy. I see all the things I want to create to fill those lovely bowls and dishes.
The REAL question of the day? Why did Paris Hilton order in Mrs. Beasley's cupcakes when clearly the choice for the rich should have been Sprinkles? Biggie was right. Mo' money, mo' problems.

Thanks for the questions!

Hey, I'm telling my mom to check out your blog. She didn't serve my food on cool stuff like that! Is there a statue of limitation on complaining about dishes?
