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?

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

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?
