    hmm.... I would have thought something like.... fructose and alchol... they are first cousins... no wonder Jerry Lee Lewis likes alcohol....

    Honestly, you aren't missing much. The cookies are hard and meh-tasting, and the filling leaves a wad of something a lot like a wee shortening pea in your mouth. I would much rather go back to Europe and eat a real slice of cake - something that has a real character and clean ingredients, wheat notwithstanding.

    i would need to avoid going back to europe. if i did, i would suddenly get over my gluten intolerance. their bread and cakes leave ours for dead so it is no real loss being GF here. if i was in southern europe, i would be in tears every day and i am not prone to tearful meltdowns. either that or i would have to drink alot of the local liquers. then i would be too smashed to notice i couldnt have the bread LOL

    the breads in europe are much different (and better) than what passes for bread here.... I love a good crusty loaf of bread.... slathered with butter

    Sea, Oreos are almost as bad as Tootsie rolls. They look like chocolate, but they taste like chemicals. Very disconcerting.

    LL, that would stress me out also. How fancy does it have to be? Do you have grocery stores that do "trays" for at least some of it? I tend to overcompensate when faced with that type of thing. I'd probably cook for 100 and then fall over in a dead faint just as it got served.

    doc, LOL on the Jerry Lee Lewis reference - yep, you and I are pretty much right up there on the skewed brain thing.

    General note: the MDA board is wonky tonight. I've had to delete a bunch of double posts, and twice when I hit "post quick reply," I got that warning that I was going to leave the page.

    Definitely - there are some things the US has coughed up that nobody should know about!

    Mmmm bourbon... Had an affair with Evan Williams Honey Bourbon. Sweet tooth, I have.
