Cilantro equals Coriander

Coriander is Cilatro

Coriander aka Cilantro

Ok. Mystery solved.

I've been unable to find fresh cilantro (an essential ingredient of salsa) and have been pouting about that all year. Now I see, to my surprise, coriander (which *is* sold in the fresh herbs section of Booths). Must be the same thing. Yeah!

  1. You can get bundles of super fresh delicious coriander/cilantro in any indian, oriental or turkish grocery store and it's way cheaper.

    Also try Costco for Ziplock bags, that's where I get them - you can also find Hershey's and Reese's peanut butter cups there :)

    Try Flora White or Stork in place of Crisco. Trex is another alternative but a bit harder. Look in the chilled foods sections of any supermarket, usually Tesco has a bigger range

    You can find dark (bittersweet), milk (semisweet) or white chocolate chips in any supermarket, just look in the baking section. I think Supercooks do the best ones for cookies

    Marshmallow fluff can be found on Amazon

    Orzo you should be able to find in Greek, Turkish or Italian Delis

    Happy Cooking :)
