Best wine for my taste? Sweet, limited acidity?

I can't seem to stomach wine easily, even the smell is pretty awful, but I want to acquire a taste for it for special occasions. I'm tired of being the only person toasting with a coke! I don't like sour, acidic or alcohol tastes, so I may be out of luck, but if anyone has any recommendations I'd really appreciate it. I should also mention that the above mentioned flavours are all usually much worse when cold, so I'm hoping for a good room-temp wine. Thanks in advance!

Brands for stickier sticky rice?

I've lately been trying to make thai-style glutinous rice but may attempts so far have not been as satisfyingly sticky as I had hoped. I think it may be down to needing a more authentic brand. [more inside]

Teach me how to cook congee.

I've searched previous instances of congee showing up in comments on the Green, but very few actual recipes. None of the recipes I've found online even agree on the rice-to-water ratio or cooking time. Recipes from any nation, savory or sweet and any serving tips or suggestions most welcome!

What's going on in my mouth?

Calling all cooking chemists: It's said that the tartness of food indicates it's acidity. And sugar can be used to reduce that tartness. But a sugar solution is pH 7, so it's not neutralizing the acid. What gives?

Dog Treats

My dog loves dried sweet potato chews. They go for $20 a bag in the pet store even though the only ingredients are potatoes. It must be that I can make them at home for the cost of a potato.

Weird ice cream place in North Carolina?

I'm trying to remember the name of an ice cream shop in Asheville, NC, or thereabouts. I was there in 2002, I believe. They used a big machine that loudly pulverized your ice cream flavor and toppings together, and then extruded it like soft serve. Is this place still around? I got the feeling that it was kind of like a franchise, and that the machines could be found elsewhere. Best ice cream I've ever had.
