1) From: Michael Wascher
I found limited edition Dulce de Leche Oreos while shopping last night. I
had a couple with a Liquid Amber shot Americano. Liquid Amber and these
Oreos seem to be made for one another.

Mike -- what store -- major chain grocery, major chain discount, 
local grocery, walmart, etc?  Those sound good (and that reminds me, 
it's time to order some Liquid Amber again).

A strong, potent cup. The pungency of the monsooned beans comes through in
this blend. You get an espresso with caramel notes if you get the roast &
brew right.
There are complementary flavors when pairing this coffee & these cookies:
the caramel of the coffee & of the cookies goes together. There are also
opposites: the very sweet cookie (sweeter than your everyday Oreo) plays off
against the slightly bitter & earthy flavors of the coffee.
IMO it really shines as an iced coffee. Even with the muted flavors you get
from a chilled cup, you get plenty of flavor.
It'd probably do well in milk drinks too, especially highly diluted lattes,
though I can't vouch for this. It's just not my thing.

Stop & Shop, Market Basket, Shaw's. Ceretani's was bought out by Star 
Market, which was bought out by Shaw's. Pretty soon we'll only have 
one, big grocery store here...
No, actually, the great thing about New England is that we have lots of =
Mom & Pop stores.
We do, however, have a large Hispanic population (esp. here in Lynn - 
yeah, I'm Lynne from Lynn, LOL), so I might find these cookies 
somewhere. I usually don't even go down the cookie isle - it's rare I 
buy stuff like that pre-made, these days.
If I can't find them, I will invent my own version. : > )
Arlington is nice. I'm from Malden, originally. I think I know 
practically all the communities in and around (north, usually, but some =
west) Boston & Cambridge. Massachusetts is where my heart & soul 
reside!

lots that are odd than big, though).

Sweetened condensed milk that is loaded with corn syrup, which is 
probably not very good for you, but no one ever claimed it was, right? 
Back when I somehow didn't notice that I was fat, I made this several 
times to use as part of another, more complicated dessert. Haven't had 
it for years though--sure tastes good.

It sounds like a base ingredient for flan (or as I like to call it, flegm).
Blech. :)

16) From: Casey Jones
The base indredient for flan is eggs.
Dulce de Leche is kinda like a sticky caramel sauce.  No eggs.
I enjoy them both.
But, I can understand how you would not like flan.  I think it's is a
"love it or hate it" kind of dessert, mostly becasue of its texture.
My wife agrees with you and thinks it's like swallowing snot.  And
bread pudding is even worse in her book.

I think I made banana cream pie using this stuff a few years ago. I
remember the process of cooking the can of milk stuff, and when it was
done and came out of the can, it was sort of like caramel pudding.
Sure was good. I didn't realize that it had a bunch of corn syrup in
it, but it makes sense that it does.

Once the can is cooked, it's also good to mix in toasted coconut and
pecans and spread over a pan of brownies.

On that note, and to go even more OT, here is a recipe my mom used to 
make that features that kind of thing.
4 Layer Squares
This is very definitely a 1960s recipe—the kind found in the women’s 
magazines of the day. My mother made these all the time for years. Then 
she lost the recipe. She found it while cleaning out a cupboard some 20 
years later and passed it on to me. It is excruciatingly sweet. As a 
child I never understood why she cut it into such small squares and why 
the adults always seemed to go on and on about how it was too rich to 
eat more than a taste. These improve with a bit of age, so make them and 
pop them in the fridge for several hours before eating them. Leftovers 
should be stored in the fridge too.
1st layer:
Your favourite brownie recipe or a packaged mix with 1/2 cup chopped 
nuts--walnut, pecan, cashew----your choice
put into a greased 9x13 pan
2nd layer:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts--as above--
Mix well --spoon over and spread over 1st layer
Bake at 350 for 30 min--let cool completely before 3 and 4 layers
3rd layer:
6 tablespoons butter
3 cups sifted icing sugar
1 1/2 teas. vanilla
3 tablespoons milk
Mix together and spread over baked 1st and 2nd layers
4th layer:
2 tablespoons butter
2oz.square of bitter chocolate--drizzled over other layers.
(Note: I always make twice this amount for layer four so that the whole 
surface can be covered with a thin layer of the bitter chocolate)
For some reason these taste way too sweet until they are at least 4 
hours "old".
