Kissle, Comment by Arielle NaMara on March 26, 2017 - Report this comment
I really loved Kissle a LOT, but really hate yogurt. Why anyone would want to eat something that tastes like spoiled milk is really beyond my understanding. Why can't they make yogurt without those cultures?
Mello-Roll Ice Cream Cone, Comment by Richard on March 25, 2017 - Report this comment
I am now 78 , grew up in Brookly and very clearly remember Mello-Rolls. We use to get them at Grabner's Candy Store, located on 17th avenue at the corner of 57th street which had a soda fountain. We also use to get Mello-Rolls at Jones beach in the late 40's & early 50's. Regular ice cream cone were a nickle, then 7 cents & finally a dime. I do not remember if we paid more for a Mello-Roll than for a regular ice cream cone. Ice cream back then was a real treat and usually only enjoyed during the hot weather and purchased from either an ice cream truck, cart or parlor. The refrigerators in this time period had a small freezer compartment that at best, could hold a few ice trays.

For those looking for the smores, it is called Suddenly Smores. Look for the ad on YouTube. It's glorious.

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Dutch on March 22, 2017 - Report this comment
Go for it EM. I remember the recipe came from an old Swedish recipe, and called for 18 minutes of blending. Remember how much trouble we had when they wouldn't rise right, because they were all natural and subject to, who knows what, weather changes perhaps. And they looked small compared to Entenmann's which were all blown up with emulsifiers... But oh what a taste... they were the best.
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by DonutHead EM on March 22, 2017 - Report this comment
Sick of looking at those Cinder Blocks in Entemann's Pound Cake boxes so I'm taking home from work the Dutch Mill recipe book "The Bible" and whipping up a smaller batch of pound cakes....we used butter, milk etc. - nothing but the best. I'll buy a gallon of milk, loosen my belt, put on a Ranger game and taste what used to be 80's heaven.
