“The taste of Heinz’s ketchup began at the tip of the tongue, where our receptors for sweet and salty first appear, moved along the sides, where sour notes seem the strongest, then hit the back of the tongue for umami and bitter, in one long crescendo.” What the Dog Saw, by Malcolm Gladwell

“Every time Swank and Butler kiss, you feel the earth move. But that’s only because you’re watching two tectonic plates press hard against each other.” “Imagine a cross between a pale imitation of the Tom Cruise character from ‘Magnolia’ and 50% of the beer commercials that have aired in the last few years.” Mmm; deliciously bitchy quotes indeed.
Southern Cherry Cola Cranberry “Salad” two cans of whole berry cranberry sauce
one can of cherries in syrup
2 boxes of cherry jello
2 cups of cherry coke
1 cup of boiling water For the topping:
1 8 oz bar of cream cheese
a tub of cool whip
a teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of powdered sugar (it should be lightly sweet, not cloying)
1 cup of toasted pecans Combine the cherries and the 2 can of cranberry sauce in a large casserole dish (mash up the cranberry sauce a little so it isn’t “can-shaped”). in a separate bowl add the jello to the boiling water and stir until it dissolves. Add to the cranberry mixture. Stir in the cherry coke. Make sure it’s all well combined and set it in the fridge for a few hours until it sets. After a few hours combine the (room temperature) cream cheese with the powdered sugar and vanilla until creamy and well blended, gently fold in the cool whip and chopped pecans (if it hasn’t reached the desired consistency add a little milk a tablespoon at a time until it’s spreadable). Spread over the cranberry sauce and put back in the fridge to chill. Remove from fridge just before serving. This can be made vegan with a few substitutions
