    Digestive issues

    SInce extended fermentation in breads helps in the digestive process, I am wondering what other foods (like beans) cause you to perpare the foods a certain way; or foods you generally avoid serving with another food. john

    12" Wrap (Tortilla) container help

    Thanks Charron.  I've had to break out a frozen pack.  Luckily they've come apart easily and defrosted within a reasonable time.  Before i make a wrap i usually put one on my panini grill for 3-5 seconds- makes em pliable to roll.  Probably need to consider the micro since the grill isn't always...
