I'm planning to make this croquembouche recipe. It calls for a pastry bag with a 1/2 inch wide tip and a pastry tube with a 1/4 inch wide tip. I need to purchase the supplies for making this and I'd love your help! [more inside]
Can somebody help me find a tinted moisturizer for my face. I don't want anything super heavy so it should absorb almost immediately. I can purchase in person or via the net. My skin is slightly dry, but no other problems. Hopefully it won't cost more than $50.
I have what I believe is a nickel allergy (when I wear earrings for a certain length of time, they cause my pierced ears to "weep"). It's a pretty common allergy, apparently. I minimize wearing earrings but sometimes it still happens and I'd like to put something on them to help them heal. [more inside]
A couple of summers ago I went to the beach without sunscreen and ended up with two charming little sun spots right under my nose. I had hoped that they would fade with time but no, I still look like Hitler when I'm not wearing make-up. Help. [more inside]
What can I use to solve my terribly dry hand problem? I would prefer natural solutions, like oils (but coconut oil isn't working, see below the fold). I would accept unscented creams that I can buy at a drug store. I would rather not spend $45 per ounce of some lady cream at sephora. (yes, diet, water, sleep, humidifier. I'm on those things.) thanks! [more inside]
Where was the Magnum Ice Cream commercial with Rachel Bilson filmed? While some of the cars shown are American, I spy a Toyota Yaris with taillights that look very different from the US-market version, a Jeep with export taillights, and some other SUV that was certainly never sold here.
My wife and I had an amazing cheese at a party last night. It was soft, about the size of a typical wedge of grocery store brie, but with a black-and-white speckled rind and a very pungent odor. Any ideas?

Obviously, needs to work in the above.

Basically, that's it. Sometimes I don't have time to eat breakfast, so I drink some 10% cream to tide me over. It's got some fat and protein making it relatively filling, and way less sugar than meal replacement drinks or fruit smoothies or juice. But when people see me do it, they freak out about how unhealthy it is. Is it really? [more inside]
I would like to get some kind of coffee-related drink, but I'm not sure what I'd like. I like Kahlua & milk, and chocolate things, but when I've tried black coffee I haven't liked it.

I followed this recipe for a coconut cream pie up to but not including the last step for making the custard. I did not incorporate the butter? How bad is this? How will it affect the final product?
I am cooking dinner this weekend for an old friend who has requested Italian, preferably pasta with a creamy sauce. I am not very well acquainted at all with cream sauces, apart from this very simple one. I have many extra hours to work on this, and access to several specialty markets and a Trader Joe's. Help me find a crazy delicious recipe! Special farfalle inside... [more inside]
My friend does a ramen night every so often, where he makes ramen completely from scratch. I'm often tasked with dessert because I'm a blogger and baker... I've already made plenty of desserts with black sesame and green tea so I want to try something new. I have taro powder and was originally going to do something with taro and coconut. I already even made taro marshmallows. But then I remembered that I had bought a bag of kinako/soybean flour some time ago and I should use it... I found a recipe for a kinako chiffon cake but would an ice cream be better? [more inside]
This has been the Year Of Learning How To Make Ice Cream And Ice Pops. With certain holidays looming on the horizon, I have been searching to no avail, for a recipe for peppermint ice cream pops. I made a successful peppermint ice cream with crushed candy canes...but not sure if shoehorning the product of an ice cream maker into pop molds would really work properly. Do any MeFi Ice Cream Mavens have tips for me?
I had an incredible milkshake once when I was a kid in the early aughts in southern New Jersey. The ice cream place served enormous milkshakes and had distinctive cow placemats. It was not near the shore; it was probably in a rural or somewhat rural area. What ice cream place was it? [more inside]

My hands are a mess due to neglect. Dry, flaky and raggedy cuticles. I don't have spare cash or time for regular manicures - think my last one was 2 years ago. Can you recommend a good hand cream or oil that will get rid of my scales, soothe my cuticles and maybe even strengthen my peeling nails? My skin can be sensitive so nothing too perfumed but I like fancy toiletries so nothing too basic either, and I don't have time to make my own. Sunscreen would be a bonus. I'm in the UK so something available here or that ships to here. And preferably something that will fit in my handbag, or comes in full size and travel sized versions. I thank you.

I have been using depilatory cream on my upper lip. A few weeks ago, I must have left it on too long because it left a mark, I guess it's a burn. It looks like a shadow and it's dark! It's horrible- now I have what looks like a moustache right where a moustache would be! Will this ever go away? Is there anything I can do to make it go away? Is there anything a doctor could do? Would a chemical peel help? If there's nothing that can be done, what's the best way to cover it? I've been using foundation, but it still shows through somehow.
