Baklava


BeginsAgains

The day I get to try warm fresh baklava will be a really good day.


HootieRocker59

As long as you use store bought phyllo dough, making baklava from scratch is actually not particularly difficult. Just layer the dough sheets in a baking dish with melted butter and a nut/cinnamon mixture, slice it, bake it, and then pour the syrup over it just as it is out of the oven. The sound of it crackling when the syrup is poured on is just ... Wow. One shouldn't eat it just then, though, because you want to wait for the syrup to be fully absorbed.


snickitysnick

As a pastrie chef, DONT make phyllo dough. Its not worth it. its hard anoying and time consuming and 90% of the time its just worse then store bought. Ive had to make it a few times when our suppliers didnt have it, i actually considerd walking out eachtime.


xrockangelx

As an ex-pastry chef, I second this. I've made it by hand once for a personal project. Never again. It's so much work! I'm glad I did it for the sake of having done it, but it took a ridiculous amount of time and effort.


readytopartyy

I made it earlier this year and holy moly it was so good. Took some time and patience but delicious as fuck.


GielM

You're correct. The ONE advantage to eating baklava hot is that you immediately notice how rich it is, and thus are less tempted to eat too much of it... But it's great either way!


RoleModelFailure

But when it’s cold I feel like it’s a delayed reaction. All that sugar and sweetness warms up and hits you.


tsundereed

Those sweet Hawaiian rolls


zarkovis1

With the orange packaging?


OnTheEveOfWar

Kings Hawaiian is the brand name. They are the shit.


MusicalPigeon

I bought some and my roommate ate half the pack in a few hours. I kinda hate when he does that.


brianlafave

This would start a war in my house


MusicalPigeon

A few months ago I got a poptart variety pack and told him he could have the strawberry ones (I don't like them), he ate them the Cherry ones (my favorite) and half the blue berry ones. My poptarts are no longer up for grabs. I was very close to starting a war with him about it.


Apophis90

Blood would have been spilt if someone ate *all* my Cherry poptarts.


MusicalPigeon

Yeah, I just stopped cleaning his spoiled food out of the fridge. There's been a large sealed container of lasagna in the fridge since June. I told him that I'm not cleaning up after him if he keeps eating my snacks. (Its also his mom's Tupperware and I'm not throwing that out.)


googlyman44

I had a roommate like this. I dealt with him leaving shit everywhere by just throwing it in his room. Old pizza in the fridge for 3 weeks? On his bed. Cup of soda on the coffee table for 3 days? Nightstand. He got the hint eventually.


EnIdiot

I put a piece of cold bacon and cheddar on the and heat them for 15 seconds. It is the perfect 2 am snack.


axloc

Anything wrapped in a king Hawaiian roll is the perfect snack bro, bacon deserves no credit here


tsundereed

Yep!


chocotacosmash

There's a Kings Hawaiian restaurant where i grew up and it smells like those rolls baking.


ayakokiyomizu

They have restaurants? What do they serve there besides bread?


ynwa1892

In LA kinda near Santa Monica there’s a Hawaiian restaurant called RUTTS that serves French toast made from those king Hawaiian rolls and have a coconut syrup…


MjolGordon

An ex of mine lived near their factory in Torrance and you can smell that shit in the air driving by. Heaven...


hogjowl

Soba noodles. Cold soba in the summer is refreshing, and hot in the winter to keep your warm.


briarapple

This is the first thing I thought of when I saw this question!


sassafrankimberly

Soupy noodles in general seem to fit the bill (at least from my Japanese standpoint). Soba, udon, hiyashi chuka/ramen... I'm starting to get hungry...

2am snacks


nucklehead97

This is why I'm fat. Too many 2am snacks. Kings Hawaiian bread hits differently at 2am


Expensive_Egg_

There’s a pretzel version now too

forumroost1017

We always do, us T1s need to look out for each other! So does anyone have any spare novalog? I'm all out...


Pascalica

There is a sliced bread version that makes amazing French toast, too.


Expensive_Egg_

Fuck that sounds good . Definitely having that Sunday morning


letsgobruins

I’ll crush 11 Oreos and a glass of milk at 2am no problem edit: some of y’all need Jesus.


Joe_Neates_Meat

Only 11?? Pathetic


floatzilla

11 packages?


Bludgeonation

Put a fat slice of honeybaked ham in there! Oh yeah!!


LegalSC

>Oh yeah!! Heard this in Randy Savage's voice for some reason.


HVACTacular

I'm a victim of this as well. The wife hides them when we buy them.


tewahp

My wife hides all of our snacks and rations me with 1 box out at a time. So, in my drunk 2AM mind this half box of Cheeze-its is all we have... It works shockingly well.


theghostofme

[2am chili is the way to go.](https://redd.it/jkc1j) Naturally followed by [2am ice chili shower.](https://redd.it/jlbdf)

Ah yes, 2am chili, the quick and convenient late-morning snack.

Thanks, just googled it and now I’m really craving for some!!

For all my confused Dutch people, it's not what you think. https://twitter.com/onzetaal/status/824989734321680384?t=0zi3FfpONB1dQl_yYVOfrw&s=19


Livelyflower

Thank you for this epiphany my fellow Dutch


Amethoran

You have no idea how much you just helped me out. My girls grandma used to make these all the time but she couldn't remember what they were called. Been looking for this exact thing for like 2 years now.

Pie


basedlandchad14

I don't think anyone enjoys hot and cold pie equally but I do think both sides have large and loyal fanbases. I'm team cold.


KailReed

It depends on my mood or laziness level. Both taste great though


IttHertzWhenIP

Depends on the pie too imo


ThievingRock

This is the defining factor. Apple pie? Good cold, *amazing* warm. Lemon meringue pie? That's gotta be room temp at most. Coconut cream pie? That *must* be cold.


MrBigRagePig

Pumpkin can be warm, but I've almost exclusively had it cold and love it that way. Pecan is glorious warm with a lil ice cream.


GozerDGozerian

Pumpkin may be the most 50/50. It’s a switch hitter pie.


KenHutchenson

Not so sure about shepherd’s pie…


MrLouth

Depends on how fresh the shepherd is...

Brownies


siddharth_pillai

Sizzling hot brownie + Vanilla Ice Cream = Perfection


tWkiLler96

I could eat this every night if I didn't have self control


Unasked_for_advice

or diabetes


Drewtheller02

Or lactose intolerance


BigBruhter6281

Or high blood pressure


Noire_Raven

What is this, a bingo sheet?


Drag0n411Keeper

or the lack of ingredients.


Cheese_Lover_420

Or empty bank account


TheAndorran

“A nice warm brownie” and “a nice chilled brownie” sound equally delicious in ways most other foods do not.


The_Whale_Biologist

Brownie fresh out of the oven? Good. Semi frozen brownie, maybe with ice cream on top? Good.


SquidyQ

Or combine the two, brownie fresh out of the oven with ice cream on top. Great.


Exot1c_

Brownie fresh out of the oven with cold brownie on top


goldanred

Ice cream fresh from the oven with frozen brownie on top


The_Whale_Biologist

And now I must go to the store and buy brownie mix and ice cream


frenchjolynekujo

Soft bread


Aksi_Gu

I mean this works a couple ways too. Like a piece of bread and butter, with good bread, and a quality butter, is delicious on its own Toast that up first, BOOM, delicious! But a fresh slice, from a fresh baked loaf thats still warm, well.....


hat-of-sky

That fresh warm slice is a moral decision, though, because the quality of the loaf suffers from being sliced before fully cool. It's generally an easy one however, because you just have to eat the whole loaf then and there.


InannasPocket

This is why I like to make 2 smaller loaves, one for standing in the kitchen shoving it in our faces with butter while it's still warm, the other for more civilized uses.


Lavanger

Yeah about that.. that's how you end up eating two full loaves of bread. The key is to make 3...


Splotte

So anyway, I baked seven loaves today, and...


EnduringConflict

Don't lie. You do the same thing to both loaves you filthy carb loving degenerate. That said I agree. Fresh warm bread with just plain butter is somehow one of the most tasty things in existence. I once dated a girl who got a bread machine and had a warm loaf waiting for her every 3 or 4 days when she got home from work. How I never considered such genius before I'll never know. But her brilliance changed my life. And my waist line.


Professor_Quackers

My mom used to bake her own bread, soo I can honestly say that the four of us used to down an entire loaf in one sitting


Mathblasta

My buddy's mom made some of the best bread I've ever had. It came out of the bread maker and was immediately turn apart by hungry teenage boys.


EnduringConflict

As it should be. Bread has been a staple food as long as humanity has been able to farm. It's survived thousands of years of social changes and various ethnicities giving their own take on it. Yet every single human "group" or dead civilization had/has a type of bread. It's delicious as fuck and wouldn't have lasted as long as it has if it wasn't. I swear there is almost something primal that awakens in our brains when we smell freshly baked bread. It's so "plain" in terms of spice but yet delicious on a level few foods ever get to be, let alone for thousands of years. Short of someone with celiacs, glutten issues, or just on a diet, I can't say I've ever met someone who "disliked" bread. They might dislike a type of bread, like say sourdough or pumpernickel. But to dislike bread as a whole (without having a reason to avoid it I just mean general food) I can't say I've met someone who does. Not claiming they don't exist but I imagine there are incredibly few of them.

Coffee with a splash of cream. But it has to be ice cold or hot, nothing in between.


nizzernammer

This rhymes like an adage for the ages.


3rdGenENG

Or a haiku: "Coffee with some cream. Has to be ice cold or hot. Nothing in-between."


luffychan13

Coffee with some cream. Has to be ice cold or hot. It's snowing on Mt Fuji.

Gr3yPryce

I know it’s a dish best served cold… but what defines revenge as a dish served hot? 🤔🤔🤔 Edit: typo, dish, not fish lol


DragoonDM

> but what defines revenge as a fish served hot? It's when you beat someone to death with a cooked trout.


hardcoredore

As opposed to a cold trout? 🤔


seizurevictim

Not to mention it takes way more effort to murder someone with a cooked fish as opposed to a frozen fish. That's *revenge*.


Mundane-Currency5088

They just keep falling apart, all flaky and delicious...


DirectCompetition345

Are you talking about the fish or the other person?


timexcitizen

Dishing it out immediately and while still HOT with emotion from the wrong-doing inflicted upon your person. Edit: For all the people telling me this is retaliation: re·venge /rəˈvenj/ noun the action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hand Tell me y’all, where does it say that some time in between the wrong-doing and the revenge is required before it is called revenge?


Tr0user

Finally, the serious answer. It is best served cold though. Biding your time and savouring it all calculated like. After time has passed.


MrMoustaches

When you roast up a hot cod loin and then mash it into the ac vents of your mortal enemy’s car.


KenHutchenson

Okay calm down Poseidon

This is the best answer, because cold ham is on the same level of hot ham. The other options had acceptable but inferior cold versions.

Cookies


ovaltine_spice

I sort of disagree. Don't get me wrong. Cookies are always great. But a fresh warm/heated cookie is just next level. For me you couldn't say it's 'just as good' strictly. 'still really good' when cold is more like it. But like I said, I'm splitting hairs here.


Solenya-C137

Also delicious frozen


ac1084

Had this conversation with my wife two days ago becuase she wanted me to pull some frozen cookies out I had vacuum sealed like 4 months ago. I took a bite of a frozen one and said "ah, thats crisp", it had m&ms in it which had a nice crunch. She called me a psycho and microwaved hers.

Poptarts. They are great whether room temperature, hot, or frozen. Edit: I love how half of you are learning you can heat them, and half of you are learning you can freeze them. Edit 2: My account is more than 6 years old and now >10% of my karma is poptarts. Nice.


snwbrdrmidget15

FROZEN!?!? **leaves for pop tarts**


xrumrunnrx

That was my jam back in school days. Any of the berry ones (wildberry was my fav) and the fudgy chocolate type are great frozen. I'm now realizing I don't think I've had a poptart in over a decade.

You better get on that.

Side note. Anyone else notice that pop tarts are thinner now with less icing?

Every human can drink boiling water at least once in their lifetime


vkapadia

Warm water tastes round, cold water tastes pointy.


Dusbowl

Makes sense. I have heard that falling into frigid water feels like a thousand knives


OhSoTheBear

I have done a "polar plunge" (fundraiser where you jump into a freezing lake in late February) many times. It feels like a million needles stabbing every inch of your body. It literally takes your breath away.

Glad to see other people also taste shapes!


Swooper86

Warm water tastes bouba, cold water tastes kiki.


ganeshanator

For those unaware, the [bouba/kiki effect](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouba/kiki_effect) is a pretty cool phenomenon. People, irrespective of language, associate the word “bouba” with a rounded object and the word “kiki” with a sharp object.

Pumpkin pie

Tyda2

I've actually never had hot pumpkin pie 🤔


temalyen

I did once a very, very long time ago. In the late 80s my parents decided we were going out to a restaurant one Thanksgiving instead of the family making food. I don't remember my main course at all, but I do remember getting pumpkin pie at the end. They put whipped cream on it and the pie was so hot the whipped cream melted into a liquid. I remember thinking it was ice cream at first because it melted. I don't remember how it tasted, I just remember being annoyed because it was so hot I couldn't eat it.

Shrimp


bagofbeanssss

I don’t even eat shrimp anymore, but I know you’re right. Shrimp cocktail ice cold? So fucking delicious. Butterfly shrimp with garlic butter to dip in? Also heaven. I can still remember how good both of these things taste and it’s been over ten years haha.
