The simple secret to great iced coffee was something my grandmother learned in the depression. You take your leftover coffee from the pot at the end of the day and put it in your ice trays overnight. Now you’ve got ice for your coffee that doesn’t dilute (but as ‘the dregs’ are stronger, the reverse in fact) as you… Read more
Small correction. It is Ginger Liqueur, not Ginger Beer. Probably a big difference in the end flavor, and you wold shake out all the carbonation anyway.
I have seven of these, ground as flour, and a couple more in whole form. I love making multi grain breads. It’s harder to get a light crumb and a good rise but it does feel like it’s better overall nutritionally.
I worked in an all-you-can eat crab legs buffet as a busser when I was that age. I was literally 13 and didn’t totally realize the impact of the industry I was in. Mostly, it scored me a SNES. But I put up with a lot of shit from people. The lack of self-awareness of someone eating at an all-you-can eat spot is pretty… Read more
“pickle people” is such a lovely use of alliteration
I learned that even the Michelin starred places have cockroaches.
The fries are an afterthought for Sonic, all of the other side options are better at varying levels.
I tried this this weekend and was extremely disappointed. I was surprised at how flavorless it was, and, with its mentions of the over-breaded fries and under-dilled creamy ranch, this review really nailed why. Read more
This article made me realize that I don't like Sonic's food. Everything that is breaded is definitely thicker than normal. Their mozz sticks are mostly breading, as are their chicken options. The pretzel sticks are so sweet. The cheese dip or mustard don't help balance it much. I do like their grilled cheese (the… Read more
I didn’t work in a sit-down restaurant. I worked at a Taco Bueno as my first job. After that, I have always made sure that my child never left a huge mess for someone to clean up. We gather all the dishes toward the table edge and try to make the bus person’s life as easy as possible. I believe everyone should work… Read more
I’d give the burger a C and the Pickle Fries side a C+. Like you said, they just weren’t pickle-y enough.
Meh if I want a “pickle burger” I get the Whataburger double meat double cheese, no lettuce tomato or onion (I just don’t like them) extra mustard extra pickles.
I live in the Midwest and we had Taco Johns in my town when I was in my teens, then they went away, but now they’ve been back again for the last 5-10 years. They are, in some ways, much better than Taco Bell, but they are more expensive as well. They’ve been on a “street taco” kick for a few years that I don’t know if… Read more
I want to know more, and possibly subscribe to your newsletter.
FINALLY someone’s saying it (though I mean, anecdotally we’ve been saying it since...always). I like Taco Bell just fine but Taco John’s is just so, so much better.
