Ah, ice-cream sandwiches! If there’s one thing that takes me back to my childhood it’s hearing the sound of the local ice-cream truck doing its rounds. For those few moments, I feel the urge to check my pocket for spare change and get that feeling that I wish I was a kid again.

I have become a big fan of using the carne picada sold in our local butcher shop for taco night. Marinated, thinly sliced beef, ready to cook that makes extraordinarily tasty tacos. Buying this product is convenient and gets a weeknight dinner on the table in a jiffy. However, I got to thinking. What exactly is this carne picada? Why can’t I make my own? And what other delicious dinners can I create using it?
The heavenly taste of dirt cake is simply awesome! This dish has remained one of my favorite snacks cum desserts since long. Initially, my grandmother used to prepare it during our Summer holidays.
American sauces are a nightmare to get right. With traditional French or Italian or even English cooking, it’s pretty easy to find a single, reliable source you can use for your recipe. This lets you quickly compare the dish you’ve made with an “ideal” version and make the appropriate changes. When you ask a friend for advice or look online, you can usually get a pretty definitive answer immediately. If you need to thicken a pasta sauce, there will be a note in the recipe that tells you exactly how to do that.
I’m not a big South Park fan myself. I don’t hate it or anything, but I never really got into the late-night adult cartoon. As a result, when one of my friends exposed me to the idea of chocolate salty balls, I didn’t think of anything particularly risque.
You probably don’t want to eat tarpon. This advice is based on sheer practicality. Tarpon is smelly, has far too many bones to be practical, and doesn’t taste particularly better than any other fish. The best way to enjoy it is to poach the crap out of it and then make fish cakes with plenty of spices and aromatics so you don’t really taste the tarpon.
Bulk sausage is sometimes known as sausage in a can. Though not always sold in an actual can, it is a sausage that has not been put into a natural casing or formed into sausage patties.
Cheeseburgers are anything but simple. You can vary the meat, the toppings, the buns, the cheese, and even the presentation. If I’m served a cheeseburger with a bag of chips and a crisp pickle slice, it’ll make a pretty different impression than if that same cheeseburger is handed to me with a mountain of fries and a selection of dipping sauces.
Shit on a shingle (SOS) recipe is one of those dishes that is not only very easy to make but always reminds you of your childhood. We are sure that your parents used to prepare it when they were in a hurry and they needed something for dinner.
