Re: Pizza Toppings

Corn? I've never seen that on a pizza. This was one of the biggest revelations of my time living in the UK. As someone who likes pops of sweetness, crunch and/or juicyness on pizzas (such as pineapple, peppadew, peppers etc), corn is definitely a great pizza topping for me. Especially on a deep dis...

Alternatively, you could bypass the problem by elevating the sweet potatoes to a single main attraction, like twice-baked (aka souffle) potatoes.

Re: Today I Made:

Myth. The red came from the way the cocoa powder reacted with the other ingredients. These days the cocoa is processed differently and doesn't anymore. Beets were a later addition to make it red again. These days you can use beets or red food colouring. And I do not at all find it to be "weak c...
