Bull City Flavors Giveaway! (Ended)


Supposedly it is, at least from what I read on Google :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Believe it or not, I have never had Indian food…don’t know why…no reason really…probably because I don’t like spicy food and I imagine it is probably really spicy!


Oh! and the first time I had authentic Mexican food, I was hooked. IRMA’s in Downtown Houston near the Astrodome. Lets not forget Del Sol and many more.

Not all of it. Though I think if you liked cury, that would help, but they don’t put it in every thing. My very favorite is their flat bread called Naan.


Banana pudding my dad used to make. Incredible. The wifey tries… but it’s not the same.


My mother used to make good traditional banana pudding


My wife makes a great banana cream pudding


I’d like to formulate some Watermelon Taffe


I’m not good at it but I’m also trying to make a chocolate malt, and its pretty good, but I need to see how it holds up in a year I may publish it (doubtful).


This will sound boring to many but STRAWBERRY is my wifes favorite juice, now I’m experimenting with Salt Strawberry, and Salt Blends.


kolaches!!! Oh how I miss my favorite kolache placel. Any body from Texas should know what a kolache is. I make home made ones and they are good, but I cant get the dough rite. I am close, very close. Know there are a lot of different recipes for the dough, but the one I am trying to get right is a light, fluffy, slightly sweet, bread like dough. Anybody out there that has a good recipe, I would love to have it.


Sausage Kolache

Texas-style homemade sausage kolache are a savory twist on the classic Czech breakfast pastry.

For the dough:
1 package (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
1/4 cup water, warmed to 110-115F
1 cup milk, warmed to 110-115F
4 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled to warm
2 large eggs
5/8 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
4 3/4 - 5 1/2 cups flour

For the filling:
Grated cheddar, optional
Fresh jalapeno slices, optional
Smoked sausage, cut into 3-4 inch pieces and halved lengthwise if very thick
Sprinkle the yeast over warm water in the bowl of your stand mixer. Let proof for 5 minutes, until foamy/creamy.
Turn the mixer to low and add the milk, melted butter, 2 eggs, sugar, and salt until mixed thoroughly.
Add the flour in two batches (start with the low amount) and mix only until just combined. The dough will be tacky but should be firm enough to crawl up the dough hook. Add additional flour as necessary.
Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 1-2 hours, until dough has doubled.
Punch down and refrigerate covered overnight or for at least 4 hours.
Divide dough into ~2.5 inch balls (I weighed mine at 2.5 oz each) and set on a lined baking sheet.
Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
Flatten each dough ball and top with a couple slices of jalapeno and pinch of grated cheddar (if using) and place the sausage on top.
Wrap the dough around the fillings, pinching the edges together and placing seam-side down on the baking sheet.

Cover and let rest for 20 minutes, while preheating oven to 375.

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until browned.
Let the kolache cool for 20 minutes and serve.

Leftovers will keep tightly wrapped in the fridge for 3-4 days and can also be frozen.
Yields: ~15 large kolache


Sorry… derailed.

Back to the giveaway folks! :slight_smile:


For me it would be my Mom’s peanut butter cookies. A mix of INW Biscuit and INW Peanuts comes close…but, of course, the juice doesn’t have that “Mom” goodness.


Thanks for the contest! Back when I first started vaping, and quit smoking, there was a flavor that I couldn’t get enough of. It was Mrs. T’s Snickerdoodle Cookie. I haven’t tried it in many years. I wonder if it would still be as enjoyable.
