That was an awesome experience that you shared! I believe in life after death. It's the physical suffering before death that I fear and of course leaving the one's who need me behind. Thanks for sharing your story!

...@Gordi - Just to prove you wrong, I made hot chocolate over the stove top, which was delicious (in a good-humored way)


Foss, twice now you have said that I am wrong.

Can you please elaborate?
(I actually consider it to be quite rude to say someone is wrong without good reason.)

You said that I was doing it the wrong way (making the home-made baileys), when the methods that I employ, and have employed for many years, work perfectly well and produce great results. Every time. How am I wrong?

You said to prove me wrong, you've made hot chocolate over the stove top?
How is that proving me wrong??

I didn't say anything about making hot chocolate.
I said: "...You should not melt any chocolate based product on direct heat. (It can seperate and/or burn) "
Key words being "Melt" and "can".

If you still think I'm "wrong" then perhaps you'll believe a more expert opinion?

BBC Good Food Guide - How to melt chocolate
FineCooking Dotcom - How to melt chocolate
HowStuffWorks - How to melt chocolate
Taste dotcom - How to melt chocolate
WikiHow - How to melt chocolate

All of the above links (which were the first five that came up when I googled "How to melt chocolate" for you) indicate that the best method is exactly the way I described (Bain marie) and some of them also mention using a microwave (which was my 2nd method).
Not one recommends melting chocolate based products on a direct heat, and some say exactly what I said... that it can cause separation, burning or scorching.

Please, please tell me how I am wrong, and how you've proved me wrong, I'd love to know. (Especially since all I was doing was providing my friends with a nice home-made recipe for a commercially bought drink that was mentioned in the thread.)

My apologies to the others for derailing the thread, but things like this just grind my gears. It's so unnecessary.
What exactly have I done or said that deserves to be "proved wrong"?
I personally think that it's bang out of order, but if I'm missing something please let me know??

Relax Gordi, you're sounding like a diva Gordon Ramsey.

We all have our ways of preparing our food.

Hey Doug,
I couldn't care less about the food.

Really.

It's being told I'm wrong. Twice.
For no reason.

That's all.

Breathe deep bud. I hate microwaves myself, but at least you provided a alternative method for melting chocolate. (I haven't done it in decades and it was always a failure, but now I know
)

Still going to try it though at some point.

Is there a way you can make it for just one? I don't host posh parties at my place anymore now that I'm single. At the most, it's a bunch of guys over for a football game and beer and brats suits them just fine.

Sorry about the Ramsey dig (that guy just drives me nuts and his food sucks), but I'm like you, I often wing it on the fly whilst cooking and have yet to have any complaints (Even though criticism is welcome and sometimes even fail to please my own taste buds)

I have a bud (the guy with the farm) where we often have a disagreement on whether beans belong in Chili. I call his Chili meat sweet soup. While he calls mine Firehouse. I guess it's what we are used to.

PS: Yes...Chili SHOULD have beans in it and also be hot and spicy! No one can convince me otherwise!

Since we are on the topic of food at the moment, while I do agree that making it is an art, it doesn't have to be artful. It just has to taste good and be plentiful enough to sooth the rumbling belly.

I've been to plenty of fancy restaurants and more often then not have left disappointed. I go there to eat, not be presented with a art piece. It's a Restaurant for Dawgs sake...what's not to understand?

No worries Doug,

The Baileys recipe makes one standard bottle's worth (when you use 1/2 bottle of spirits with 3 mars and a small pot of cream).
If you need less than that, you're a lightweight!!
LOL but I suppose you'd just cut down the amounts in proportion?
Maybe 1 mars bar, with 8fl.oz. spirits, and only 2 or 2 1/2 fl.oz. cream??

I'd heartily recommend experimenting!
Some people like it sweet and thick (more mars)
Some like it stronger (more booze!)
The proportions are a rough guide, and the original uses Irish Whiskey, BUT Scotch Whisky, or Brandy both work great, and you can use Rum/Vodka or even a combo!!! I've done it loads, and I think my best one was half Whisky half Brandy!
Have Fun!

PS - Chilli MUST have Beans AND be HOT!

I had to laugh at that one! I have been to many fancy restaurants as my Sister and her Husband frequent them often and my Sister takes me out for all my birthdays. She knows the places that not only make a wonderful presentation of their food, but they give you decent portions and it all tastes divine. Also been to ones that charge a ridiculous amount for teeny portions like their feeding a damned bird and it wasn't that great.

Not as bad as when Nanny Plum serves up "cloud of vegetable soup" for a dinner party. A "modern meal" to impress King and Queen Marigold.
