Fighting over ramekins? Don’t those cost like 33 cents each?
Apr 3, 2008 at 3:40 pm rating: 2
Only white people buy new meatloaf pans because the existing one was inadequate.

Oooh, poor Jason. Had to make his own birthday cake. I bet that’s what caused the whole roommate relationship to go sour.
Apr 3, 2008 at 3:41 pm rating: 8
Hey, I have to make my own birthday cake too! And while I’m pissed off about it, I know that I can’t entrust the job to MY housemates either (one 7-year-old, a cat, two fish and 22 worms).
C’mon, he’s a chef, and therefore probably very discerning!

Don’t touch my ramekins, or I’ll knock your block off in a little message with tape. I’m a virgin from Santa Cruz and my meat loaf pan is too big enough.
Apr 3, 2008 at 3:48 pm rating: 11
Jason is a size queen!

Amazing (as is SWPL, in fact). I wish there was a copy of this chef photo attached as well — “Seriously, why would you even think this was yours?”
Apr 3, 2008 at 3:49 pm rating: 4
I am afraid we have already seen the chef picture in question.
Apr 3, 2008 at 4:44 pm rating: 6
I do like that he called her out on her p/a note…AND totally faced her with the birthday cake comment…AND slightly mocked her detailing of where her ramekins were bought. The more I read his note the more I fall a little in love with it. I will make him a cake next year.

P.S. What’s with your obsession with the chef?

I’d like to know how they can tell their ramekins apart..don’t most of them look identical? “No, you’ve mistaken those ramekins for these ones which I bought during my Top Chef auditions last summer…”

I have never lived in a place where there was more than one set of Ramekins/tiny soufflés. I would like to though. Creme Brulé HEAVEN! But why is this a “white person” thing? I think people of EVERY RACE and Creed can enjoy personal chocolate soufflés and creme brulé.

Confession: I just had to do a Google Image Search for ramekin ’cause I didn’t have a bloody clue what they were. Now I do! Useful little buggers (that I can’t believe would cause so much drama).

Since he found the ramekins when he was showing her room to the person moving in, that leads me to believe she was moving out. Me thinks there may be more to this story than a simple ramekin.

“stuff white people like” is a site created by two Canadian guys who noticed that liberal White educated professional city dwellers were SO utterly convinced of the complete and total rightness of everything they do that they were beyond satire.
They were, of course, wrong.

Yes one CAN solder with a Brûlée torch. If one MAY solder with my Brûlée torch, it depends on who is asking. Ummm careful with my cigarettes? Considering the temperatures that Brûlée torches reach, perhaps it would be better to wish me to be careful with THAT.

I keep imagining that if you pan to the right, there will be another, longer, bitchier note that talks about how someone stole the egg poacher, the oyster shuckers, the frittata pan, the pasta machine, and the French press. After that, yet another even bitchier, even longer note with more inane shit. It goes on…

To the tune of Anything For Love:
And I would take anything from you…I’d snatch your pic of Wolfgang Puck
I’d take anything from you, if it’s not locked up you’re out of luck
But I’d never forget to bake you a birthday cake, oh no way
And I would take anything from you but I won’t do that…no I won’t do that
Anything from you, oh I would take anything from you
I would take anything from you but I won’t do that
(heavy musical interlude)
Maybe I’ll take your ramekins, and even your meatloaf pan
Maybe I’ll take your spider and the industrial can of nonstick Pam.
I’ll walk off with a jar of capers, and cans of fresh allspice
You never made jerk chicken or pork or anything Caribbean
I know I seem crazy, but I like gourmet cuisine
I know it’s not mine but you’ve got so many things
As long as crepes need turning, and brulee topping needs burning
As long as your things are within reach, you’d better accept that
I will take anything from you, I’ll put it in my hobo sack
I will take anything from you, so don’t ever turn your back
But don’t give me shit because no one baked you a cake, you dick
I would take anything from you, oh I would take anything from you
I would take anything from you but I won’t do that, no I won’t do that
Apr 3, 2008 at 9:45 pm rating: 4
After a while, you’ll forget I stole that
I’ll be too busy trying on your new toque hat
Oh you wouldn’t do that!
Oh no, not my hundred pleat hat!
I’ll take your cast iron skillet and sautee pan
And the oven mitt ‘specially designed for your hand
When the new roomie moves in I’ll take their stuff, too…
But I’ll never give back what I stole from you!
Apr 3, 2008 at 9:53 pm rating: 4
Wait! Don’t forget the dramatic feminine vocals…it’s not Meatloaf without a little sugar:
Did you take my silicone cupcake pan?
Did you hide my stuff in the back of your van?
Did you take all my plastic jell molds?
(I think I took that!)
Did you swipe my saffron, you know it cost me a lot? Did you soil my lace doilies with globs of slimy snot?
Are you the one who stole my salsa bowls?
(You know I took that…yeah I took all of that)
You took my whisk, the one for nonstick pans
now I can’t make a decent omelet, man.
Did you think I wouldn’t know?
(I never thought of that)
Did you take the garlic press my mother got?
and the picture of Bobby Flay?..he’s so HOT
we’re you going to take all home?
(yes, I was doing that)
After everything that we’ve been through
You forgot my birthday and left me blue
So I had to get myself a cake pan.
(I never did that!)
Come on now, be honest man
You got caught up in your sneaky little plan
I don’t matter and it’s too bad…
(No, I won’t do that! I never did that!)

I’m troubled by the notion that somebody would make bread in a meatloaf pan. Bread pans are specifically designed to ensure even browing through carmelization. Meatloaf pans are actually a little thicker to protect the meat from scorching on the outside while the middle comes up to temperature.
By the way, you can make delightful individual meatloafs with ramekins. I will even break out the brulee torch to melt and brown a little blue cheese on top of individual Kobe meatloafs.

I don’t care what kind of meat it is, the name “meatloaf” makes me feel like, how you say, to puke. I mean, c’mon, a LOAF of MEAT? It sounds like a joke. As a side note, I typed “sheet loaf” by accident. And it was very funny.

You are technically right (the best kind of right). When I typed it, I actually pictured bed sheets…which conjured a very disturbing image of what a “sheet loaf” might look like in that instance.

Finding a “sheet loaf” in bed isn’t so bad…unless you rolled over on it.

Welcome back to Cryin Chef I’m your host, Bawlin’ Clown. During the break some crazy things were happening here in Bitchin’ Stadium…let’s throw it over to Whining Wretch and see what’s happening:
It’s terrible, Bawlin, Iron Chef Remy took Challenger Jason’s ramekins…this coming right after he stole the picture of Iron Chef Batali.
What’s Jason doing? He seems to be beating that batter pretty hard.
He’s making his own birthday cake.
But he’s using a meatloaf pan…a Sicilian meatloaf pan from Petaluma, if I’m not mistaken. That won’t work…What’s going on now?
Oh no! Jason is looking through Remy’s bag.This is going to get ugly. I hope nobody writes a note.

I don’t even know why do it, I don’t even enjoy them anymore.

Yeah…this was my submission.
Remy was moving out (in a very bad way), and when I was showing her room to a potential roommate I noticed she had the chef painting my sister got me…which prompted me to look through the bags of kitchen stuff she packed and pull all of my stuff out.
The mysterious bread made in the meatloaf pan was the cheesy-poof bread recipe courtesy of Alton Brown.
Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the bill I put on the fridge where she corrected my 1 cent rounding error for the water. That would have made a good submission also.
The comments are hilarious…and besides, bitch tried to steal my ramekins!

Alton Brown?!? Well, on the bright side, it wasn’t a recipe from Andrew Zimmern.
and LOL on the rounding error.

i just realised i own a couple of ramekins. i had previously referred to them, incorrectly, as “mini baking thingies”.

Heisa’s eating links, so I will post it directly.
I’ve gotta side with ghostie on this one.
Should have nested at 52.3. Sorry.

yeah, do you think you could go ahead and try to nest at 52.3 next time? I’d REALLY appreciate it. GAWD!

Thanks Rose for that info…I never knew it could be food!

See posts 43.2 & 52.1. Both are responses to you regarding your assertion that ramekins are not food and both are by Unholyghost.
Hmmm, coincidence? Maybe you couldn’t read her posts because they were ghostly?
Apr 5, 2008 at 9:16 am rating: 1
Ramekins Are BOTH a food and a baking dish. KINDLY reference the HTML link posted at 53 please and thank-you. I have not eaten a cheesy version of the noun in question, however, I would assume that consumption of the porcelain version may be rather crunchy.
Apr 5, 2008 at 12:39 pm rating: 1
But…but…what is the dish called without the food in it ?
And what is the food called outside of the dish ?
And I hear the porcelain version is more healthy for you with all the minerals it contains….
Apr 5, 2008 at 2:00 pm rating: 2
Take it easy folks, don’t get all crazy about the ramekin thing, have fun! when I said nobody knew i thought it was obvious that statement excepted ghostly. CHILL!
Apr 5, 2008 at 2:09 pm rating: 2
It wasn’t apparently…might have helped if you said “apparently nobody but ghostly knew”.
Or “apparently nobody knew but ghostly”.
Something to that effect would have made it more obvious to everyone.
But thanks for clarifying…

I agree Crash !
Apr 5, 2008 at 2:51 pm rating: 0
Crash, when you see an empty little ramekin dish you could say “hey, who ate my ramekin?”. The food outside the dish would be a naked little ramekin.
“Ramekin”: the most versatile word in a cracker’s vocabulary.
…and remember guys, I judge you when you use poor grammar.
Apr 5, 2008 at 4:29 pm rating: 1
It seems to be pretty versatile in your vocabulary, so I would guess you’re a “cracker”,
bland and tastless.
I’ve never used the word before.
Personally I would call the food outside of the dish something like a custard, creme brulee, even pudding or ice cream which can be served in a remekin or ramequin that according to the link above is the ceramic dish used to serve the food in.
So you can say “hey, who ate my remekin ?” but would that be the propper use of vocabulary / grammar ?
Apr 5, 2008 at 4:57 pm rating: 1
Like I give a damn about what you judge anyway you little cracker.
I don’t type shit for your approval.

Food wouldn’t be me unless it resided in me. There are no recipes for me and you will never see me on a menu or at the market else unless you request the type of food you’d like for me to hold.
While Google Scholars never cease to impress me, I had to speak up.
I’d lose sleep thinking of a group of misguided people ordering a case of me and thinking they’d survive in the woods.

Could you bake it in, say, a ramekin?
Apr 5, 2008 at 7:38 pm rating: 1
I don’t see what’s so hard for MP to wrap her mind around here.
Think “Casserole”. The dish it is cooked in is a casserole. The stuff you cook in a casserole is a casserole.
When I take my tuna-noodle casserole out of my casserole dish and put it on my plate, I’m about to eat fucking tuna-noodle casserole!!

No sinus issues here. I was, um…grooming my dog.
I definitely was NOT snickering at anyone attempting to eat a crock pot.

You gal’s are pretty cool.
Melissa, if you were being silly using the word “cracker” I’d just make sure people are a little more clear about it because it’s easily construed as an insult.
Sometimes it takes a little while to know eachother’s sense of humor here.
Known unknown, I’ve enjoyed reading your post’s since you started posting here.
I look forward to more, I think you’re pretty funny.
Apr 5, 2008 at 9:07 pm rating: 0
Thanks for setting the record straight. I’d hate for anyone to be “trippin” over something like this.
Apr 5, 2008 at 9:17 pm rating: 0
However, Crash, you were pretty quick to call ME a cracker and even “princess cracker”. Do you really think you should be playing referee here?
Apr 5, 2008 at 9:53 pm rating: 1
I was only trying to make peace with you since you kept playing nice and said you were being “silly”.
I figured that I might have misinterpreted you after that and you kept being well, nice…
You were the one who called names first.
So I just threw it back at you.
Where do you see me playing referee here at all ?
Shall we start again ?

Actually, it was Ghostwriter who started with the cracker bit. I don’t see anyone asking them to clarify.
I never called you any names.
I just think it’s a little hypocritical for you to give me advice on etiquette when you just called me a bunch of names!
Apr 5, 2008 at 11:24 pm rating: 1
See, the thing with Ghostwriter is, that people know his humor around here, whereas some don’t know yours…and you had this “holier than thou” attitude, which he did not portray in his post, after you proceeded with “cracker”…
Which…what did I say again ?
That it takes a little while for people to get to know each others sense of humor.
And I only called you two names,”cracker” and “Princess cracker”.
But if you’d like more I’d be more than happy to give you that.

Considering I lived in Petaluma for 18 years, Santa Cruz for 4 years, and am now moving to San Francisco, I can’t believe I haven’t crossed paths with these people. Perhaps I need to be hanging out in cookware stores.

Segregated use of ramekins in the same kitchen? Really, guys? Really?
I understand bickering over food, but surely these people realise that kitchenware is… yaknow, usually a reusable entity.
