Hello everyone! I am new here, though I have read a lot of posts over the last few years. I finally decided to make my own account because of the challenges I am having in the kitchen. I miss many American foods.
I read the only possibly related thread about shortening and it wasn't very helpful. That post is here:https://polishforums.com/food/shortening-used-baking-stuff-50492/
I really want to make biscuits. Not cookies (those aren't biscuits!!), but the most delicious bread on the planet. I crave these delicious little things! But I need shortening to make them. I always want to make American cakes. I'm sorry, but I just don't like Polish cake at all. I wish I could start an American bakery xD
I also can't find masa harina. I want to make homemade tortillas and tortilla chips. I am so happy I finally found pinto beans. I'm going to start making homemade refried beans and bring back my favorite foods! I might be from the US, by my stomach is Mexican!
EDIT: By the way, I made some delicious cornbread a few days ago and I ate WAY too much! Today I plan to make banana nut bread. I have only recently started cooking these things. Does anyone else have any suggestions or advice?
