    Hi. I want to make fresh Dulce De Leche (caramel). Is it true that I can just buy a can of
    evaporated milk and boil it for 12 hours? Are there any other methods?

    I am addicted to Red Lobster's fish and chips. Does anyone have a recipe that would
    duplicate theirs?

    TIA DianaMT

    dressing is a corn bread stuffing and appears to have celery in it and is sort of sweet to the
    taste. they guard the recipe but i am hoping someone will be able to help me

    oat groats and don't have any recipes. Would be very grateful if anyone could help, especially with
    the groats. Shell.

    Hello -

    I've been looking EVERYWHERE trying to find a recipe for the abovementioned dish. My friend had it
    at a restaurant once and it was DELICIOUS, but I'm finding it hard to track down a way to make it
    myself. I gather you can make it using different meats - I'd love one using beef mince.

    Hope you can help - thank you! Emma.

    I had this fantastic Thai cake/dessert/snack ( I'm not too sure what is was) which seemed to be
    steamed or cooked, white/transparent, sweet and with a filling with peanuts and spices.Little balls
    just a mouthful. It was served with fresh coriander and chillies - and was really really strange but
    very very nice. Does anybody know what this is - and does anyone have e recipe ?

    Okay, so I was at our neighborhood Asian grocery with my kids today and a peek through the
    refrigerated section yielded, among other exotic items, little packages of vietnamese water beetles.
    Actually, they weren't all _that_ little.. about two to three inches long. At any rate, my seven
    year old son said hey dad, can we get some of those? I wonder what they taste like! Before I was
    able to say, "yuck!" it occurred to me that I should be thankful I've got kids who are willing to
    try new things like that.. how many other parents have kids who want to try eating bugs for dinner?
    Anyway, the problem is that I haven't got the slightest idea how one cooks (or eats) a Vietnamese
    water bug. Can anyone help me out?
