I found two printings of your recipe and each showed a small square box then "cup margarine" and a small square box then "cup orange juice". Is the box representative of one, meaning one cup margarine and one cup of orange juice?

Bcskye--Linda's recipe calls for one-half cup of margarine and one-fourth cup of orange juice.

Hint--Click on 'View' at the top of the page (in Firefox), on the pull-down menu choose 'Character Encoding' and the change the code to 'Western'. Those boxes with the question marks will change to reveal fractions.

Her ban has left a big void. I hardly ever check this forum anymore. She had prompt and informative responses to questions or problems. Wish she could come back. Maybe next time I check it out.

RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

I talk to LindaC very often (once a week) if youd like I could ask her. I too rarely come to this forum anymore. For years we had such a great time and formed a bond with all who were on here. Sad but true

RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

I am sure she is greatly missed on the 'antiques' forum as well. I just never go there anymore as rarely do you get good answers. Whata resource she is.


 o
RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

She was a wealth of information...just not the same anymore.


 o
RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

She was a wealth of information

Yes she was, but she could be pretty snarky, especially to new forum members, or those of us who didn't know as much as she did; it was embarrassing to read some of her comments.

Having been the target of some of "impatient" posts early on, I don't miss her as much as some do. There are plenty of people on this forum just as knowledgeable, and kinder, too.


 o
RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

I never noticed that though...apparently I wasn't paying much attention. Maybe I'm just used to it, I too can get annoyed and snarky sometimes but I have certainly been the victim of snarky posters too...HAHA! I think a lot of times written words will come off as mean when in the poster's mind they didn't sound like that :)

ETA: I suppose we shouldn't be talking about this or this yummy recipe thread will go BYE BYE...HA!

The beauty of the Gardenweb forums is the ability to edit, before and after we post.

I reread and edit all the time for just that reason, I don't want my words to be misunderstood.

I don't consider that anything I have to say to be so important that it should be posted without a good edit to make my thoughts clear and, if necessary, soften the hard edges.


 o
RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

Yes that may be so but the "edit" feature is VERY VERY new, only had it a short time.


 o
RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

No it's not. We have always had to go to a second, preview screen where we can edit and approve our thoughts before we post them. Editing after we post is a new and welcome improvement.

RE: Lindac, Your Hamantaschen Recipe

There's a woman I work with who regularly comes across as being very abrasive, both in speaking and in writing. She has acknowledged to me that it is something she has struggled with all her life, and when she tries to sound nicer people think she's being insincere or passive-aggressive. Some people just can't help it.

Fortunately I've learned to work around it and generally not let it affect me, as this woman also happens to be one of the most knowledgable people on my team. Others can't get past it. Once in a while I feel the need to smack her back, figuratively, and we move on.

As with Linda, there are times I can't help but think she's doing it intentionally. As with Linda she's not always right. As with Linda, there are others around who are knowledgable and could come to the same conclusions, but perhaps not as quickly and efficiently. As with Linda, I often cringe when she opens her mouth. As with Linda, there are people who go through great lengths to try to have her "taken care of." Unlike GW with Linda, fortunately my employer values her contributions and keeps her around.

What a shame she has been banned. We went a long time without having that happen since Disney days. I hope this isn't a case of childish Forum police.
