    My husband and I had burgers at Square 1 the other day. Best burger I've had in a while. Thick, juicy, and cooked just the way I like it. A bit pricey for a burger but well worth it if you've got a craving.

    Thank you, Mike Sanford, for organizing such a fun and tasty Whiskey Tasting event! We were privileged to try some rare whiskies and enjoy great company. A BIG thank you to Mr. Sanford for inviting me and a BIG thank you to Mojo's Hogtown Bar-B-Que for picking such delectable liquid treasures and teaching me new things about whisky! Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity!

    With regard to the article about Making Yogurt at Home, I have two issues. 1) The author recommends heating the milk "until it steams".. This is way too arbitrary (especially if you are making the yogurt from raw milk). I recommend using a double boiler (to avoid burn on) and heat to a temperature of 165 F, then cool down to 98-100 F...prior to inoculating with the starter. Heat treatment accomplished 2 things... it kills harmful pathogens and also modifies the proteins in the milk to obtain a better gel or body/texture in the yogurt. 2) The author recommends using yogurt as a starter. Problem here is that, depending upon the age of the yogurt, the microorganisms may not be that active (or may not even be there). Also, sugars and flavors are possible inhibitors to the growth of the bacteria. I recommend obtaining a starter culture from a reputable supplier (see. and follow their instructions on how to grow your own active starter.. You don't want to have just sour slop which doesn't have the correct bacteria ..

    Speaking of National Strawberry Ice Cream Day, SweetBerries Eatery and Frozen Custard is serving Strawberry Cheesecake as today's Flavor of the Day. You haven't had ice cream until you've had frozen custard!

    We went to Bangkok Square for lunch today. It was an oasis of serenity in an unlikely place, a strip plaza way out on Archer Road where Hobbyland and the second Beef O'Brady's used to be. The food was beautiful to look at and wonderful to eat, the service great,and the prices totally reasonable. I got Mussaman curry and my daughter got Pad Thai. Both were served with soup and a spring roll as an appetizer. The portions were perfect, and to top it off, we got a small tasting of homemade coconut ice cream. Delicious and divine. If I could, I'd go back tomorrow and have another type of curry.
