Thank you, Jenny! Can't wait to try those. :) I actually have pineapple juice on hand for once. I just to need to buy the coconut cream.

I think you are in the US - Coco Lopez is the preferred brand. 1/2 cup is what recipes usually call for, but we reduce that to 1/3 because we don't like things too sweet. Do let us know if you enjoy :)

Oh yeah, I am familiar with Coco Lopez. ;) It occurred to me that I made Blue Hawaiis in a blender one time. And they were delicious. But I don't think I saved the recipe. (And, yes, I know I could find a bunch online now.)

All this talk of immersion blenders - I think I really need to get one. You can't believe the number of blenders we have been through in the past few years - between soups, daily smoothies and blender cocktails, we're quite hard on them. :lol:


Oh Jenny, you absolutely MUST get one! It is an amazing appliance. Once you make homemade mayonnaise with it (it takes all of 20 seconds) you will not regret the purchase.

OK I'll get one (doesn't take much to get me to spend money on kitchen stuff ;)) - but not for mayo. I make that with my stand mixer. :)

Good quality, fresh seafood should smell like the ocean - fresh ocean water. If it has that "Fishy" smell, then something is wrong with it. The sea doesn't smell like fish.

This!

Thanks for the suggestion, Jenny!

You must get an immersion blender. I got mine at a high end kitchen store and it was only $20! That was a good deal so it may be more on a regular day. It is a nice brand, I think Cuisinart. 200 watts which is all you really need.

I love homemade mayo; a buddy of mine had an ex-bf who made some and it was so good - with an almost sweet taste to it.

This! I learned this from a fishmonger in Vancouver; I didn't know this before 2006! :o

I make a curried chicken salad that gets raves every time I serve it to guests. The secret ingredient: the homemade mayonnaise.

It makes you wonder why some people don't like mayonnaise. Maybe it's because they've never had homemade?

My problem with it is the eggs. Don't like eggs at all!

My whole life I thought Miracle Whip WAS mayonnaise. :shuffle:

:lol: Nope.
I used to as well, and Mom and I used to argue about which was better. She has always hated Miracle Whip; I like MW or mayo, but for certain sandwiches, the taste of MW works for me. I made potato salad with Miracle Whip for a family cookout once, and she flat-out refused to eat it.
