    Graw. (That’s my internet frustration noise, please don’t let it frighten you!) My comment is unrelated to this post—I’ve been searching out a site that I’m sure you’ve linked to before, one where they sell a different good each day (or is it week?), and while the site keeps selling the goods until they’re sold out, the product is only on sale if you buy it when it’s first featured on the site? (Googling different versions of this comment (“sale” “deal” “day” etc) has been, as you can imagine, less than helpful. Thanks Megan!

    What awesome links! I almost wish I’d waited to get the Kitchen Aid with the glass bowl…

    RE: the Pecan Pie, my favorite is the Toasted-Pecan Pie from BonAppetit
    I get regular requests for this one, even from my husband who doesn’t like nuts!

    B- I think the site you’re thinking of is

    In the heavy cream link it’s worth repeating that a good site for food substitutions is they’ve recently started adding vegan substitutes as well. They’ve saved me many a trip to the store.

    G –

    Amarieda – Oh, thanks for the link, I’m going to have to test some pecan pie recipes soon.

    Latenac – Thanks!

    Grade B is plentiful in OH at the farmer’s markets.

    I use one of the big OXO pop containers for a flour canister and it’s really great – it holds an entire bag of flour, the lid opens easily, the container is lightweight, and the lid is a tight seal. They’re a little pricey but worth it, IMO.

    funny how you’ve turned me on to some of these websites that i’m starting to put them in my daily queue, thus seeing them before you post them.

    all of recipes are so damn easy and delicous. i’ve tried practically all those egg recipes. just last night i made the poached egg over rice bowl. so awesome!

    Okay, I don’t have a Metafilter login but I SOOO want to tell that pretzel person to buy Newman’s Own pretzels.

    Now I want pretzels.

  • 9 megan // Apr 1, 2008 at 11:29 am

    Alex – Thanks, flour storage is important to me, I keep the whole wheat ones in the fridge and I need an airtight container so it’s good to know one of the OXO containers will fit a whole bag of flour.

    Barrie – I’m not surprised, I bookmark things and keep them until I have a large enough group to publish.

    Daphne – Thanks, did you see the suggestion to use them to make the Rolo turtles, those Newman’s pretzels would be perfection for that!

  • 10 you'll probably delete me barrie // Apr 1, 2008 at 12:20 pm

    oh my crap, i totally had those rolo turtles for the superbowl this year. they are truly amazing and too easy to make. if you make them for a party they’ll be gone in less than 5 minutes. so make oodles of them.

  • 11 Abby // Apr 1, 2008 at 12:53 pm

    I need to make those Girl Scout cookies! For nostalgic reasons, if nothing else.

    And is it silly to own two Kitchenaid mixers? That glass bowl is calling to me….

  • 12 McAuliflower // Apr 1, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Ooo- that peep sushi makes me hurt just looking at it!

    Since you don’t seem to have tired of bacon-related links [and who would, really? Aside from, you know, vegetarians… :)], I thought you might enjoy this:

    They’re currently sold out, but still, pretty entertaining. I found them via Daily Candy.

  • 14 sarah // Apr 2, 2008 at 9:11 am

    Megan, long time reader, first time commenter here…love love love your website!

    I’m actually responding to comment #1: are you thinking of Woot!?

  • 15 sarah // Apr 2, 2008 at 9:18 am

    Then I read the comments more carefully. Oops.

    you can get the OXO pop containers at BB&B and use those 20% coupons. They work great and are better imho than clik clak! They stack nicely and have a nifty way to clean the lid and hermetic mechanism! I am planning to buy more when I get more coupons. They also sell them at Crate and Barrel and Macys but in limited styles. BB&B has the whole gamut. YUMMMMMMMMMERS!!!
