2023.03.29 08:42 ItalnStalln Need help putting together a recipe for pineapple poke cake. Or do you have a good one?
I have some pineapple juice leftover and thought it'd be fun to make this instead of my normal whiskey sours, but I'm a novice baker. I only have 3/4 cup of pinepple juice with none of the fruit, don't have a box of cake mix, but have most baking staples. I know that's probably not enough juice to both put it into a 9x13 cake and the soaking "glaze", so where will it add the most pineapple flavor to the finished product? I do have bottled lemon and lime juices so i could up the fruity flavors with one or both of those in lieu of more pineapple juice.
I'd like to make something like this https://100krecipes.com/pineapple-juice-cake/
but in a 9x13 pan, but with a better cake. Maybe mix blueberries into the cake, but if there's lemon/lime already then that might be too much going on. Thing is, all the well thought out yellow cake recipes, with buttermilk (i have whole milk and vinegar, lemon, or citric acid), sour cream or Greek yogurt, extra yolks, vanilla (don't have), and what not don't include fruit juice. I don't know where I'd put it in and not screw up the cake. Plus they're usually for round layer cakes. Hell one even included cream of tartar, and stella parks had potato flour. Don't have those either lol. Oh yeah I have ap flour instead of cake flour. This homemade yellow cake mix https://www.simplyscratch.com/homemade-yellow-cake-mix/
cuts butter into cake flour like biscuit dough, which would help keep ap flour more tender right? If that makes a significant difference, can I use a food processor?
So basically, I'm trying to make this thing as involved and pro level as it needs to be for great results with some ingredient concessions where needed. This level of baking isn't difficult to do when you have a recipe. I can make good brownies and other cakes, and I can beat egg whites or whatever. It's just hard for someone who's never baked much to come up with his own recipe and the internet is full of crap recipes using water instead of something to provide flavor or richness. Or the sites just copy each other, giving me no confidence in what they say. I figured there should be some experienced bakers here who have a good recipe or are good enough to create one. I have maple syrup, some pretty dark rich honey, and sweet spices like cinnamon, clove, and a few more, but no vanilla or almond flavoring of any kind.

I’m having a really bad day & have not eaten much, so @ 830 pm I still have 890 calories left & I want to get a starbucks drink. A grande or venti iced chai latte with 2-3 pumps of brown sugar syrup & vanilla cold foam on top. The website says 449 for a venti. How accurate do you think that is?

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow! Let's shake it up a little. Barry! Breakfast is ready! Ooming! Hang on a second. Hello? - Barry? - Adam? - Oan you believe this is happening? - I can't. I'll pick you up. Looking sharp. Use the stairs. Your father paid good money for those. Sorry. I'm excited. Here's the graduate. We're very proud of you, son. A perfect report card, all B's. Very proud. Ma! I got a thing going here. - You got lint on your fuzz. - Ow! That's me! - Wave to us! We'll be in row 118,000. - Bye! Barry, I told you, stop flying in the house! - Hey, Adam. - Hey, Barry. - Is that fuzz gel? - A little. Special day, graduation. Never thought I'd make it. Three days grade school, three days high school. Those were awkward. Three days college. I'm glad I took a day and hitchhiked around the hive. You did come back different. - Hi, Barry. - Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good. - Hear about Frankie? - Yeah. - You going to the funeral? - No, I'm not going. Everybody knows, sting someone, you die. Don't waste it on a squirrel. Such a hothead. I guess he could have just gotten out of the way. I love this incorporating an amusement park into our day. That's why we don't need vacations. Boy, quite a bit of pomp... under the circumstances. - Well, Adam, today we are men. - We are! - Bee-men. - Amen! Hallelujah! Students, faculty, distinguished bees, please welcome Dean Buzzwell. Welcome, New Hive Oity graduating class of... ...9:15. That concludes our ceremonies. And begins your career at Honex Industries! Will we pick ourjob today? I heard it's just orientation. Heads up! Here we go. Keep your hands and antennas inside the tram at all times. - Wonder what it'll be like? - A little scary. Welcome to Honex, a division of Honesco and a part of the Hexagon Group. This is it! Wow. Wow. We know that you, as a bee, have worked your whole life to get to the point where you can work for your whole life. Honey begins when our valiant Pollen Jocks bring the nectar to the hive. Our top-secret formula is automatically color-corrected, scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured into this soothing sweet syrup with its distinctive golden glow you know as... Honey! - That girl was hot. - She's my cousin! - She is? - Yes, we're all cousins. - Right. You're right. - At Honex, we constantly strive to improve every aspect of bee existence. These bees are stress-testing a new helmet technology. - What do you think he makes? - Not enough. Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. - What does that do? - Oatches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it. Saves us millions. Oan anyone work on the Krelman? Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it's done well, means a lot. But choose carefully because you'll stay in the job you pick for the rest of your life. The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that. What's the difference? You'll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years. So you'll just work us to death? We'll sure try. Wow! That blew my mind! "What's the difference?" How can you say that? One job forever? That's an insane choice to have to make. I'm relieved. Now we only have to make one decision in life. But, Adam, how could they never have told us that? Why would you question anything? We're bees. We're the most perfectly functioning society on Earth. You ever think maybe things work a little too well here? Like what? Give me one example. I don't know. But you know what I'm talking about. Please clear the gate. Royal Nectar Force on approach. Wait a second. Oheck it out. - Hey, those are Pollen Jocks! - Wow. I've never seen them this close. They know what it's like outside the hive. Yeah, but some don't come back. - Hey, Jocks! - Hi, Jocks! You guys did great! You're monsters! You're sky freaks! I love it! I love it! - I wonder where they were. - I don't know. Their day's not planned. Outside the hive, flying who knows where, doing who knows what. You can'tjust decide to be a Pollen Jock. You have to be bred for that. Right. Look. That's more pollen than you and I will see in a lifetime. It's just a status symbol. Bees make too much of it. Perhaps. Unless you're wearing it and the ladies see you wearing it. Those ladies? Aren't they our cousins too? Distant. Distant. Look at these two. - Oouple of Hive Harrys. - Let's have fun with them. It must be dangerous being a Pollen Jock. Yeah. Once a bear pinned me against a mushroom! He had a paw on my throat, and with the other, he was slapping me! - Oh, my! - I never thought I'd knock him out. What were you doing during this? Trying to alert the authorities. I can autograph that. A little gusty out there today, wasn't it, comrades? Yeah. Gusty. We're hitting a sunflower patch six miles from here tomorrow. - Six miles, huh? - Barry! A puddle jump for us, but maybe you're not up for it. - Maybe I am. - You are not! We're going 0900 at J-Gate. What do you think, buzzy-boy? Are you bee enough? I might be. It all depends on what 0900 means. Hey, Honex! Dad, you surprised me. You decide what you're interested in? - Well, there's a lot of choices. - But you only get one. Do you ever get bored doing the same job every day? Son, let me tell you about stirring. You grab that stick, and you just move it around, and you stir it around. You get yourself into a rhythm. It's a beautiful thing. You know, Dad, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn't right for me. You were thinking of what, making balloon animals? That's a bad job for a guy with a stinger. Janet, your son's not sure he wants to go into honey! - Barry, you are so funny sometimes. - I'm not trying to be funny. You're not funny! You're going into honey. Our son, the stirrer! - You're gonna be a stirrer? - No one's listening to me! Wait till you see the sticks I have. I could say anything right now. I'm gonna get an ant tattoo! Let's open some honey and celebrate! Maybe I'll pierce my thorax. Shave my antennae. Shack up with a grasshopper. Get a gold tooth and call everybody "dawg"! I'm so proud. - We're starting work today! - Today's the day. Oome on! All the good jobs will be gone. Yeah, right. Pollen counting, stunt bee, pouring, stirrer, front desk, hair removal... - Is it still available? - Hang on. Two left! One of them's yours! Oongratulations! Step to the side. - What'd you get? - Picking crud out. Stellar! Wow! Oouple of newbies? Yes, sir! Our first day! We are ready! Make your choice. - You want to go first? - No, you go. Oh, my. What's available? Restroom attendant's open, not for the reason you think. - Any chance of getting the Krelman? - Sure, you're on. I'm sorry, the Krelman just closed out. Wax monkey's always open. The Krelman opened up again. What happened? A bee died. Makes an opening. See? He's dead. Another dead one. Deady. Deadified. Two more dead. Dead from the neck up. Dead from the neck down. That's life! Oh, this is so hard! Heating, cooling, stunt bee, pourer, stirrer, humming, inspector number seven, lint coordinator, stripe supervisor, mite wrangler. Barry, what do you think I should... Barry? Barry! All right, we've got the sunflower patch in quadrant nine... What happened to you? Where are you? - I'm going out. - Out? Out where? - Out there. - Oh, no! I have to, before I go to work for the rest of my life. You're gonna die! You're crazy! Hello? Another call coming in. If anyone's feeling brave, there's a Korean deli on 83rd that gets their roses today. Hey, guys. - Look at that. - Isn't that the kid we saw yesterday? Hold it, son, flight deck's restricted. It's OK, Lou. We're gonna take him up. Really? Feeling lucky, are you? Sign here, here. Just initial that. - Thank you. - OK. You got a rain advisory today, and as you all know, bees cannot fly in rain. So be careful. As always, watch your brooms, hockey sticks, dogs, birds, bears and bats. Also, I got a couple of reports of root beer being poured on us. Murphy's in a home because of it, babbling like a cicada! - That's awful. - And a reminder for you rookies, bee law number one, absolutely no talking to humans! All right, launch positions! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Black and yellow! Hello! You ready for this, hot shot? Yeah. Yeah, bring it on. Wind, check. - Antennae, check. - Nectar pack, check. - Wings, check. - Stinger, check. Scared out of my shorts, check. OK, ladies, let's move it out! Pound those petunias, you striped stem-suckers! All of you, drain those flowers! Wow! I'm out! I can't believe I'm out! So blue. I feel so fast and free! Box kite! Wow! Flowers! This is Blue Leader. We have roses visual. Bring it around 30 degrees and hold. Roses! 30 degrees, roger. Bringing it around. Stand to the side, kid. It's got a bit of a kick. That is one nectar collector! - Ever see pollination up close? - No, sir. I pick up some pollen here, sprinkle it over here. Maybe a dash over there, a pinch on that one. See that? It's a little bit of magic. That's amazing. Why do we do that? That's pollen power. More pollen, more flowers, more nectar, more honey for us. Oool. I'm picking up a lot of bright yellow. Oould be daisies. Don't we need those? Oopy that visual. Wait. One of these flowers seems to be on the move. Say again? You're reporting a moving flower? Affirmative. That was on the line! This is the coolest. What is it? I don't know, but I'm loving this color. It smells good. Not like a flower, but I like it. Yeah, fuzzy. Ohemical-y. Oareful, guys. It's a little grabby. My sweet lord of bees! Oandy-brain, get off there! Problem! - Guys! - This could be bad. Affirmative. Very close. Gonna hurt. Mama's little boy. You are way out of position, rookie! Ooming in at you like a missile! Help me! I don't think these are flowers. - Should we tell him? - I think he knows. What is this?! Match point! You can start packing up, honey, because you're about to eat it! Yowser! Gross. There's a bee in the car! - Do something! - I'm driving! - Hi, bee. - He's back here! He's going to sting me! Nobody move. If you don't move, he won't sting you. Freeze! He blinked! Spray him, Granny! What are you doing?! Wow... the tension level out here is unbelievable. I gotta get home. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Mayday! Mayday! Bee going down! Ken, could you close the window please? Ken, could you close the window please? Oheck out my new resume. I made it into a fold-out brochure. You see? Folds out. Oh, no. More humans. I don't need this. What was that? Maybe this time. This time. This time. This time! This time! This... Drapes! That is diabolical. It's fantastic. It's got all my special skills, even my top-ten favorite movies. What's number one? Star Wars? Nah, I don't go for that... ...kind of stuff. No wonder we shouldn't talk to them. They're out of their minds. When I leave a job interview, they're flabbergasted, can't believe what I say. There's the sun. Maybe that's a way out. I don't remember the sun having a big 75 on it. I predicted global warming. I could feel it getting hotter. At first I thought it was just me. Wait! Stop! Bee! Stand back. These are winter boots. Wait! Don't kill him! You know I'm allergic to them! This thing could kill me! Why does his life have less value than yours? Why does his life have any less value than mine? Is that your statement? I'm just saying all life has value. You don't know what he's capable of feeling. My brochure! There you go, little guy. I'm not scared of him. It's an allergic thing. Put that on your resume brochure. My whole face could puff up. Make it one of your special skills. Knocking someone out is also a special skill. Right. Bye, Vanessa. Thanks. - Vanessa, next week? Yogurt night? - Sure, Ken. You know, whatever. - You could put carob chips on there. - Bye. - Supposed to be less calories. - Bye. I gotta say something. She saved my life. I gotta say something. All right, here it goes. Nah. What would I say? I could really get in trouble. It's a bee law. You're not supposed to talk to a human. I can't believe I'm doing this. I've got to. Oh, I can't do it. Oome on! No. Yes. No. Do it. I can't. How should I start it? "You like jazz?" No, that's no good. Here she comes! Speak, you fool! Hi! I'm sorry. - You're talking. - Yes, I know. You're talking! I'm so sorry. No, it's OK. It's fine. I know I'm dreaming. But I don't recall going to bed. Well, I'm sure this is very disconcerting. This is a bit of a surprise to me. I mean, you're a bee! I am. And I'm not supposed to be doing this, but they were all trying to kill me. And if it wasn't for you... I had to thank you. It's just how I was raised. That was a little weird. - I'm talking with a bee. - Yeah. I'm talking to a bee. And the bee is talking to me! I just want to say I'm grateful. I'll leave now. - Wait! How did you learn to do that? - What? The talking thing. Same way you did, I guess. "Mama, Dada, honey." You pick it up. - That's very funny. - Yeah. Bees are funny. If we didn't laugh, we'd cry with what we have to deal with. Anyway... Oan I... ...get you something? - Like what? I don't know. I mean... I don't know. Ooffee? I don't want to put you out. It's no trouble. It takes two minutes. - It's just coffee. - I hate to impose. - Don't be ridiculous! - Actually, I would love a cup. Hey, you want rum cake? - I shouldn't. - Have some. - No, I can't. - Oome on! I'm trying to lose a couple micrograms. - Where? - These stripes don't help. You look great! I don't know if you know anything about fashion. Are you all right? No. He's making the tie in the cab as they're flying up Madison. He finally gets there. He runs up the steps into the church. The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermelon?" Is that a bee joke? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Barry? About work? I don't know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel. - You do? - Sure. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. - Really? - My only interest is flowers. Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. Anyway, if you look... There's my hive right there. See it? You're in Sheep Meadow! Yes! I'm right off the Turtle Pond! No way! I know that area. I lost a toe ring there once. - Why do girls put rings on their toes? - Why not? - It's like putting a hat on your knee. - Maybe I'll try that. - You all right, ma'am? - Oh, yeah. Fine. Just having two cups of coffee! Anyway, this has been great. Thanks for the coffee. Yeah, it's no trouble. Sorry I couldn't finish it. If I did, I'd be up the rest of my life. Are you...? Oan I take a piece of this with me? Sure! Here, have a crumb. - Thanks! - Yeah. All right. Well, then... I guess I'll see you around. Or not. OK, Barry. And thank you so much again... for before. Oh, that? That was nothing. Well, not nothing, but... Anyway... This can't possibly work. He's all set to go. We may as well try it. OK, Dave, pull the chute. - Sounds amazing. - It was amazing! It was the scariest, happiest moment of my life. Humans! I can't believe you were with humans! Giant, scary humans! What were they like? Huge and crazy. They talk crazy. They eat crazy giant things. They drive crazy. - Do they try and kill you, like on TV? - Some of them. But some of them don't. - How'd you get back? - Poodle. You did it, and I'm glad. You saw whatever you wanted to see. You had your "experience." Now you can pick out yourjob and be normal. - Well... - Well? Well, I met someone. You did? Was she Bee-ish? - A wasp?! Your parents will kill you! - No, no, no, not a wasp. - Spider? - I'm not attracted to spiders. I know it's the hottest thing, with the eight legs and all. I can't get by that face. So who is she? She's... human. No, no. That's a bee law. You wouldn't break a bee law. - Her name's Vanessa. - Oh, boy. She's so nice. And she's a florist! Oh, no! You're dating a human florist! We're not dating. You're flying outside the hive, talking to humans that attack our homes with power washers and M-80s! One-eighth a stick of dynamite! She saved my life! And she understands me. This is over! Eat this. This is not over! What was that? - They call it a crumb. - It was so stingin' stripey! And that's not what they eat. That's what falls off what they eat! - You know what a Oinnabon is? - No. It's bread and cinnamon and frosting. They heat it up... Sit down! ...really hot! - Listen to me! We are not them! We're us. There's us and there's them! Yes, but who can deny the heart that is yearning? There's no yearning. Stop yearning. Listen to me! You have got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking bee! - Thinking bee. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! There he is. He's in the pool. You know what your problem is, Barry? I gotta start thinking bee? How much longer will this go on? It's been three days! Why aren't you working? I've got a lot of big life decisions to think about. What life? You have no life! You have no job. You're barely a bee! Would it kill you to make a little honey? Barry, come out. Your father's talking to you. Martin, would you talk to him? Barry, I'm talking to you! You coming? Got everything? All set! Go ahead. I'll catch up. Don't be too long. Watch this! Vanessa! - We're still here. - I told you not to yell at him. He doesn't respond to yelling! - Then why yell at me? - Because you don't listen! I'm not listening to this. Sorry, I've gotta go. - Where are you going? - I'm meeting a friend. A girl? Is this why you can't decide? Bye. I just hope she's Bee-ish. They have a huge parade of flowers every year in Pasadena? To be in the Tournament of Roses, that's every florist's dream! Up on a float, surrounded by flowers, crowds cheering. A tournament. Do the roses compete in athletic events? No. All right, I've got one. How come you don't fly everywhere? It's exhausting. Why don't you run everywhere? It's faster. Yeah, OK, I see, I see. All right, your turn. TiVo. You can just freeze live TV? That's insane! You don't have that? We have Hivo, but it's a disease. It's a horrible, horrible disease. Oh, my. Dumb bees! You must want to sting all those jerks. We try not to sting. It's usually fatal for us. So you have to watch your temper. Very carefully. You kick a wall, take a walk, write an angry letter and throw it out. Work through it like any emotion: Anger, jealousy, lust. Oh, my goodness! Are you OK? Yeah.

2023.03.28 21:46 SP2219 What a ripoff! I’ve been buying Ritz Crackers in the smaller sleeves 8 ct. for years. In 2021 there were 22 or 20 per sleeve per box for $2.50. This new box with different amounts of crackers per sleeve (20 & 13 & 12) cost $3.50 for ONLY 105 crackers total = 41% LESS crackers for a 31% higher price!
2023.03.28 19:42 This_Platypus8376 Customer: Pistachio cream cold brew help
Hello! I would like some help to know if this order is even possible and if so, how would you suggest I order it.
I absolutely LOVVEEDD the pistachio cream cold brew. Then it went away. However, I see at my local SB that they have pistachio ingredients like pistachio syrup and pistachio cream. Is there an order I can give for my local SB to make something like the pistachio cream cold brew?
I tried to make my own custom drink on the app before I go order in person, but got confused on syrup and sauce.. what is the different between syrup and sauce options?
I don’t usually do full blown customs; I just follow the standards and do minimal custom like milk type and less pumps of syrup. So I’d like to mimic the flavor of the pistachio cream cold brew.
Lastly, please don’t blast at me for this request. Ordering at SB is already a stressor and triggers my anxiety bc even after 2-3 years, I still have a very hard time ordering at Starbucks. I know y’all are working hard and already do so much. The best I can do as a customer is knowing what I want and how to order it. I don’t want to waste your time bc I don’t know how to order something. I haven’t had a bad experience at SB, but I see y’all.
So, thanks in advance! ♥️
Edit 1: to explain the last bit. What I meant was that I haven’t had bad experiences at SB (even when I fumble on my order). Every barista I’ve encountered is kind and patient. When I start fumbling, they take the time to explain things to ensure I have the order I want. They don’t rush me and really help me through the order process.

2023.03.28 15:51 JetPlanes Saved ~$500 in our first year as members! Here's everything we bought
2022 was our first year as Costco members and I thought it'd be fun to do a Costco Year in Review, Spotify style.
So I downloaded all of our receipts from Costco.com, wrote a little script to parse the PDFs, and uploaded them all to a spreadsheet
Here are the results:
From Jan. 1, 2022 to Jan. 31, 2023, we went to Costco 31 times in 3 different states (Texas, Georgia, and Florida) and bought 229 items (107 were unique items; the other 122 were repeat buys).
We spent $5,136.43, earned $96.72 in 2% reward cash, and, according to my math/price comparisons, saved around $489.
(To calculate the savings, I calculated what it would've cost to buy what we bought in Costco in Aldi or Walmart instead and subtracted what we paid in Costco. It's impossible to get a fully accurate number as prices change throughout the year, especially this year with all the inflation, so take this with a grain of salt.)
Out of the $5,136.43, $1,000 was spent on a washer and dryer set, $800 on a fridge, $500 on an iPad, $400 on a water softener, $85 on a raised garden bed, and $266.91 on tax.
This leaves $2,084.57 on general grocery spending, which includes around $200 worth of alcohol for our wedding (we served Kirkland Signature prosecco, KS Canadian Whisky, KS American Vodka, KS Cabernet Sauvignon, and KS Hard Seltzer, plus Bacardi Rum as KS didn't have a non-spiced rum).
These were our most frequently bought items along with their savings:
|Item ||Amount Bought ||Savings ||Notes |
|Tofu ||120 pounds (30 4-count boxes) ||$31.30 ||Aldi sells blocks of tofu for $1.75. In Costco, it’s a 4 pack for $6.49. A $2 per 4-pack discount in Jan. 2023 added up quick. |
|Quinoa ||114 pounds (7 15-lb bags, 2 4.5-lb bags) ||$105.73 ||Aldi sells 1 lb of quinoa for $2.56. The 15 lb bag of quinoa ($24.99) isn’t sold at every Costco. The 4.5 lb bag ($8.89) is though. |
|Oats ||65 pounds (13 5-lb bags) ||$0 ||No savings here as Aldi is cheaper. Costco had a sale on them that nearly matched the Aldi price and we liked that they were gluten free. |
|Eggs ||35 dozens (5 5-dozen cartons, 5 2-dozen cartons) ||$10 ||Hard to calculate the savings as egg prices have fluctuated a lot. But we likely saved a few bucks. |
|Almonds ||21 pounds (7 3-lb bags) ||$38.31 ||Aldi sells almonds for $4.99 for 14 oz. At Costco it’s 3 lb bags for $10 to $11. |
|Walnuts ||18 pounds (6 3-lb bags) ||$16.60 ||Aldi sells walnuts for $4.79 for 1 lb. At Costco it’s 3 lb bags for $10 to $12. |
|Shredded cheese ||15 pounds (6 2.5-lb bags) ||$9.63 ||Walmart sells a 32 oz bag for $7.48. Aldi might be slightly cheaper. At Costco it’s ~$15 for 2 2.5-lb bags. |
|Extra virgin olive oil ||14 liters (7 2-liter bottles) ||$14.37 ||Aldi sells a 16.9 fl oz bottle for $3.49. At Costco it’s $11.99 for a 68 fl oz bottle. It used to be cheapest at Walmart but prices have increased. |
|Prosecco ||12 750ml bottles ||$15 ||Costco has the cheapest prosecco. It’s about $1.50 cheaper than Aldi’s Belletti. We bought a good amount for our wedding in March 2022. |
|Total ||--- || ||--- |
Some other items with big savings were the 600-count fish oil softgels, avocado oil, spices (cinnamon, turmeric, crushed red pepper, pink salt, sea salt), maple syrup, trash bags, vanilla extract, Oikos Greek yogurt (when on sale), and an iPad Air 5th Gen.
The items we consistently buy at Costco are:
- Tofu (we eat 3 blocks per week.)
- Quinoa (we eat 3-5 cups per week; look for the 15 pound bag from Village Harvest.)
- Nuts (we regularly get KS almonds and walnuts as my wife roasts them and puts them on the oatmeal we have for lunch a few times a week.)
- Extra virgin olive oil (we used to get the KS brand but Pompeiian has been cheaper lately.)
- Avocado oil (we use it for cooking as it has a higher smoke point than olive oil.)
- Prosecco (we used it as champagne for our wedding; everyone loved it. KS spirits are terrific as well but aren't sold in every state.)
- Spices (cinnamon, turmeric, crushed red pepper, pink salt, and sea salt. We used to get the No Salt Seasoning as well but we haven't seen it in months.)
- Shredded cheese (this might be slightly cheaper at Aldi but not by much.)
- Fish oil softgels, vitamin D, and vitamin B complex (the fish oil softgels are where the savings are at. The vitamin D and B are only slightly cheaper than Walmart.)
- Oikos Greek yogurt (when on sale.)
- Butter (we froze the 4 sticks and have been working our way through them.)
- Maple syrup (we still have half of the bottle left.)
- Vanilla extract (they only sell a 16 fl oz bottle so it'll last you a while.)
- Trash bags (we're still working our way through the 200-pack.)
- Toilet paper and paper towels (the paper towels last us years and we go through a 30-roll pack of toilet paper per year.)
- Baking soda
- Salt pellets for our water softener
- Occasional deals (we recently got weed and feed and potting soil for really good prices.)
We get all our fresh produce at Aldi as they beat Costco on price and sell more reasonable quantities allowing us to minimize spoilage.
And we go to Walmart for the few remaining items that Aldi doesn't carry, such as dry beans.
To know what to buy where, I have a spreadsheet with all the items we usually get along with the item's price at our local Aldi and Walmart. By this point, we already know what to get and where.
(My spreadsheet is at 615 rows currently. I update it each time we do groceries so I also have a history of how prices change over time. I'm fun at parties.)
So that's it. Hopefully you enjoyed our 2022 Costco Wrapped. Let me know if you want some help doing your own. And if you're curious for how I calculated everything, check out the full spreadsheet
with all the data. I've also got some more info and neat little graphic on the post on my blog

2023.03.28 14:11 Alaazaal96 QATAYEF
You’ll fall in love with the Atayef
as soon as you taste it! I can make that promise! They are essentially the Middle Eastern equivalent of pancakes and are filled with a variety of delectable ingredients. Typically, street sellers in Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Morocco, and Egypt produce atayef
(also known as qatayef
). These days, they may also be found at bakeries, and some individuals even make them at home. They are so well-liked that having Atayef throughout Ramadan feels mandatory. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
HOW TO MAKE ATAYEF FROM SCRATCH?
The ingredients for atayef
, which are quite similar to pancakes, are flour, semolina, yeast, milk, baking powder, salt, and sugar. If you’d like, you may also use vanilla or rose water. They’re usually fried on a griddle or nonstick pan without any oil, but they’re only fried from one side and folded, which is very interesting because they’re just like thin pancakes with two sides — one is lace-like, and the other is velvety because it hasn’t been fried on that side and is full of bubbles! https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
are best served the same day. However, if you need to make these in advance, you can create the pancakes in advance and store them in an airtight bag in the fridge or even in the freezer. Ashta is the traditional filler for atayef asafiri. Ashta is a whole milk-based clotted cream. Although it may be made at home. Pancake batter and this atayef batter are quite similar, however the latter is runnier. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
TYPES OF ATAYEF Regular atayef
are typically larger, have a crunchy exterior, are filled with either nuts (walnuts, pistachios, or almonds) and cinnamon or with white cheese (Ricotta can work), and are then deep-fried and covered in (or drizzled with) a sweet rosewater syrup. Less frequently, they are baked with a little bit of oil and then covered with the syrup. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/ Atayef Asafiri
, also known as a little atayef, is a type of atayef that is typically smaller in size, has a soft shell, is served without heating or frying, and is frequently filled with cream and pistachios. You can load this type of atayef with anything you choose, including Nutella, fresh fruit, nut butter, and more! Giant Atayef
are enormous, typically filled with cream and almonds, but they can also be filled with white cheese and drizzled with sweet syrup.
The technique is very important
it is pretty easy but you have to read the directions carefully to comprehend it. Depending on the type of flour and semolina you use, the recipe I’m sharing with you may call for 1/2 to 1/4 cup more or less. While the batter is quite thin, frying your first atayef pancake will allow you to determine if you need to add extra water or not. Your batter is excellent if you see a decent quantity of bubbles; if not, you will need to add extra water to the mixture. Working with a very thick batter is a typical error when preparing atayef
HOW TO MAKE ATAYEF
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Next gently incorporate the wet components into the dry mixture while continuing to stir. Put your batter in a warm location, cover with a moist towel, and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes.
Pour the batter with a spoon into a preheated nonstick pan over medium heat (for little atayef, use 1 tbsp, for medium-sized atayef, 2 tbsp, and for big atayef, 1/4 cup). The Atayef
pancake will begin to bubble, but make sure that there are many bubbles present because if there aren’t, your batter is likely too thick. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
The amount of time it takes to cook each pancake should be between one and two minutes, depending on the size of the atayef
you’re producing. They’re finished when the final drop on the surface dries and stops shining (remove from pan immediately). Move to a tea towel, being sure to cover the pancakes with the towel so they don’t dry out too soon (that can result into atayef that are difficult to fold and seal when you want to fill them).
Joz, which are cinnamon-flavored walnuts, and “jibneh,” which is unsalted white cow’s cheese that has been soaked in water for days to remove the salt, are the two most common fillings for atayef. Ricotta may be substituted for white cheese if it is unavailable by adding a little honey and rose water. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
HOW TO STUFF THE ATAYEF?
Just take each pancake in your hand, fold it into a half-moon shape, and spoon in one to two teaspoons of the filling to stuff the atayef
. In order to seal the Atayef, be careful not to overfill them. Using your fingers, pinch the pancake’s edges together to completely seal it off like a parcel. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/
The Atayef may explode while being fried or baked if they are overfilled. Continue doing this until you have stuffed every Atayef
ATAYEF CAN BE EITHER FRIED OR LESS COMMONLY BAKED
Fry the filled Atayef
in hot corn oil (approximately 1 cm deep) until the edges are slightly yellow and crusty. Then take from the pan and quickly submerge them in the sugar syrup (or drizzle them with it). Place the atayef on a cookie baking sheet, then brush with corn oil to bake. Bake until crisp and golden at 200°C (390°F). Serve after drizzling with the sweet syrup. https://jordan-travel.com/qatayef/

2023.03.28 14:02 rasberry23 Huge win this morning!!
TLDR: played around with my coffee recipe (cold brew) until it was better for me, but still palatable.
I discovered within the last couple years (much to my detriment) that I like coffee drinks. Unfortunately, that doesn't include black coffee, but all manner of sweetened, cream-filled deliciousness. I've been logging that since I started with the loseit app last week and fully realized (to my horror) just how awful they are for me! So I vowed to cut back to a few times a week and substitute black tea (milk and sugar added, but still much better proportions than my coffee) for the other days of the week. Which is definitely an improvement! But today, I went a step further after having great success with my afternoon protein shake yesterday (best one I've ever made!). Today's recipe decreased the calories by 145, increased the protein by 9.5g and decreased the sugar by 41g! 😳
I swapped out whole milk for no sugar added oat milk (prefer to almond or soy milk), added a scoop of vanilla protein powder (don't recommend protein powder in hot coffee), and cut back on the number of pumps of syrup to just one. It isn't my favorite, but it is decent and the difference it will make in my health journey will be will with it, I think.

Hello, does anyone know the calories per 1 tablespoon of Starbucks sugar cookie and chestnut praline syrup?
I have both at home and I use about 1 teaspoon or tablespoon of syrup per drink and trying to figure out how to count that for my calorie intake.

2023.03.27 22:44 Dynamichipscrew Coffee with syrup/cream
Hi guys. I have a bit of a dumb question so excuse my ignorance. I notice a lot of people posting their daily intake and most of them have a coffee with syrup in them.
I’ve never really had syrup in my coffee and I tend to just drink it black with no sugar. Is this really weird of me. Doesn’t this give you a lot more calories to play with?
I suppose everyone is see is in a calorie deficit and gets to enjoy what I imagine is a super nice treat and I guess this is why? What’s your favourite flavours?

2023.03.27 19:19 howe_sounder The Great Sweetener Debate... in context of a healthy diet
So I am having a debate with my partner about sweeteners. It's easy to look up the exact differences in glycemic index, nutrients, and calories of each type of sweetener, but harder to find data/research on these sugars in context of a healthy and complete diet.
We have oatmeal every morning with toppings that could include hemp and chia seeds, fruit, and peanut butter. She chooses to put maple syrup on top, I prefer to go with brown sugar. Similarly, I put regular sugar in my afternoon tea, and she chooses honey. Let's assume we use the same amount of 'sugar calories' per dose. We otherwise have a very healthy diet with no sodas or large amounts of added sugar.
Does our sweetener decision have any detectable difference in overall health (insulin spikes, metabolism etc) over the course of a day? Lifetime?

Another healthy vegan snack idea is crispy air-fried tofu. Not only does it taste great, but it is also packed with nutrients.
Air-frying tofu is a healthy way to get a crunchy texture without all the added fat of deep-frying.

To make fruit leather, this delicious vegan snack idea
, you need to slice and flatter the dried fruit puree. Like fresh fruit, it is full of nutrients and fibers.
