As I was checking the blogs this morning, I was excited to run across TVJ's recipe for Butternut Squash Kugel. Knowing how much I like butternut squash, I quickly scanned the ingredients and proceeded to make a Supersize MPF at the ingredient coffee.

Ugh. What a way to wreck a vegetable. I know TVJ likes her half-caf, de-caffeinated half-caf...with a twist of lemon, but this was going too far. I asked ChefGrace about the coffee-squash combo that seemed to be of the Devil. She informed me that "Coffee Rich" isn't a "rich coffee". It's a non-dairy creamer.

Doh. Good thing I asked. I'm still trying to live down the culinary disaster of my youth, when I learned the hard way that Tartar Sauce is not an appropriate substitute for Cream of Tartar.
