Serving anything from this cookbook:
I was a manager at a liquor store in Dallas and one quiet afternoon this very tall, very cool man strolled in. My coworker and I greeted him, he said “hey” and strolled right past us, straight to the whiskey section, plucked a fifth of Crown Royal off the shelf, and then strolled right past us again and out of the… Read more
Annie’s + extra nutritional yeast is the sweet-spot for our dairy-allergic three-year-old and his older brother who actually knows what cheese tastes like.
We too had the enormous late 70s microwave. So big my dad had to build a special extension to the counter top. We immediately “baked” a potato. It was like we were on the Jetsons.
I remember our first microwave in the mid 80's. Similar as you were saying took up the whole counterspace next to the sink. The big 1.5 cubic foot model from Montgomery Ward that was very common in my neighborhood’s homes in suburban Chicago. We got the fancy one with a meat probe for cooking a roast. Read more
Daiya makes a vegan mac sauce that resembles the texture/taste of velveeta. It’s pretty good.
Love me some all you can eat breadsticks and salad and vitriol
Yeah, I swallowed that hook. Still great, though
loved this! “The day I realized I could drink coffee and actually enjoy it, which happened the summer I was 24, felt like one of the great coming-of-age moments of my life. At last I was a woman! No longer would I go out for “coffee” and order hot chocolate or a caffeinated milkshake. I would have coffee, by god, and… Read more
“It had a rich flavor that tasted closer to the way it smelled than a lot of other coffees” — actually, that’s the best description of good coffee I think I’ve ever read. Not pretentious at all. I love black coffee, but it always smells better than it tastes, even when it tastes great. I am psyched to try Tchibo, and… Read more
I was excited to see a Tchibo story! I live in Austria and a joke in my family is to call Tchibo the "warm store" because they sell a puzzling assortment of things that make you... Warm. Coffee, socks, scarves, hats, mittens, excercize equipment, etc. It's kind of bizarre, and I have only ever had prepared coffee… Read more
When I was growing up Tchibo was a chain of mid grade coffee stalls but in the 80s they had phenomenal success selling weird random crap in their stores, nobody could figure out what they would add to their offerings and stuff would sell out and disappear. Coffee became an afterthought for them but I guess a lot has… Read more
My wife has worked almost-exclusively for German manufacturing firms, so there’s an unwritten rule that every German visitor brings Tchibo and every US host buys steaks. It’s a win/win, but with our bean/beef exchange halted by COVID, Tchibo’s launch in Chicagoland was a welcome surprise. Read more
I love Tchibo, a co-worker brought it in several years ago, and I’ve been ordering it from Amazon ever since. I go with the feine milde version, I tried some others and didn’t like it as much. I still put cream in it, I look forward to it being more widely available.
