Re: “Weekly Open Thread Wants to Know: What's Your Favorite Retail Cookie?

Orange Milanos. Those chocolate-dipped marshmallow puff things--I forget what they're called here, but in Engerland, it's Tunnock's Tea Cakes. Jaffa cakes.

Um, Christie Cookie.

I DO love the lemon sun cookies at Provence, but haven't been there in so long don't know if they still make them.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread Wants to Know: What's Your Favorite Retail Cookie?

Like LindaDub, my childhood favorite was Lemon Coolers. The little green cookie sellers make a great one, but I can eat an entire box at a time and that habit gets expensive. My other favorite was Lemon Jumbles (RIP).

But the most decadent and delicious cookie I have ever purchased (and can still purchase) is that DoubleTree cookie. If we're talking strictly grocery store cookies, though, I'd have to say the Country Choice Organic Lemon Ginger Sandwich Creme cookies.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread Wants to Know: What's Your Favorite Retail Cookie?

I've never been a big sweets/desert guy but I won't turn down a good cookie.

Childhood stand by's: Pepperidge Farm Milanos and Keebler Fudge Stripes.

Whole Food's has a great selection RIGHT next to express checkout lane, too. I'm a simple man and their chocolate chip cookie meets my needs.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread Wants to Know: What's Your Favorite Retail Cookie?

I like a crispy, buttery chocolate chip cookie. The ones at Portland Brew are perfect. At the grocery store, I like those Tate's Bake Shop ones.

I'll never turn down a Christie Cookie oatmeal raisin cookie, but, boy do I miss Sunshine Lemon Coolers! That lemony mouth-cooling powder was magical.

Re: “Swallow, Don't Spit: 'Oil Pulling' Is a Crime Against Food

@lesleyeats you are simply an entirely negative person. Very narrow minded. AND quite frankly.. a little lower in the iq levels compared to some of the lowest recorded iq people ever. Don't waste any other persons time posting some long, very stupid, post about how u don't think this blah blah blah. Noone cares what you think. When you have evidence. Then u can share with the world what you have found. I had superior pain in a tooth from a cavity. Four days after I started oil pulling. The pain is gone. It's disgusting that you swallow any type of oil. It's oil. Ur not suppose to just eat it. Waste of my life reading what u had to say. And I'm pissed about it.

Re: “Pat Martin Has Two New Barbecue Projects: One on the Books and One on the Roof

I love Martins and this whole plan sound great but the best part of this story is the memories you conjured up for me by that one little line in parentheses about past shenanigans at Graham Central. For shame, for hilarity, for real I can't believe some of the nights I spent there!

Re: “Stillhouse Restaurant Plans Big Opening Celebration at Short Mountain Distillery

So, a snazzy distillery, a queer community, and Sandor Katz. All within a 5 mile radius. I might leave Davidson County just to see that.

Re: “Open Thread: What's Your Favorite 'Old Nashville' Restaurant?

When we moved here in 1989, we were on a pretty tight budget, and Pizza Perfect was our big night out - when they used to be over by David Lipscomb.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread Asks, 'Where Can You Get a Good Breakfast in Nashville?'

Pancake Pantry is amazing...best breakfast potatoes in town, hands down. Whoever knocks it, is incredibly delusional . Solid omlettes as well. But if you want good ole country breakfast...Hermitage Café is epic.

As far as San Diego...lived there 30 years. Janets Café in East County is amazing. The best breakfast in all of SD County is Broken Yolk in Pacific Beach. Place is always buzzing with a great atmosphere. Solid Bloody Marys along with best omlettes in town easily.

Re: “Hot Chicken and the 'Nashville Ghetto' in Australia

Well, if they want the truly authentic Nashville experience, they'll need to break some liquor and beer bottles on the side of the road and have some people puke on the sidewalk.

Re: “Harris Teeter's Four Nashville Stores to Close; Three Will Reopen as Krogers

I don't know why anyone is surprised. Kroger long ago ran out every other grocery store in Memphis except for fresh market and whole foods. They are just not a great corporate citizen in my opinion. There was a store in east Memphis about the size of a Harris Teeters that served a mostly elderly population nearby. That store has been vacant for years--and the elderly residents have to go about 7 miles to the nearest kroger store. Go figure. Profits Profits Profits!!
