Hi mimi1144, I can't help you much with Dade County but I live in Broward county where the CFL is in effect, however my municipality (Sunrise) does not allow any kind of business/baking from home.  I believe each city has the right to determine whether something is allowed based on zoning so I would check with your city to find out.  It had taken me some time to get that information as no one was aware of it in the beginning but it basically boils down to the city...
Thanks for the input. I thought maybe I was imagining things. Each machine does have its own quirks and the longer you use it the better you get to know it. I'll continue to monitor the results and maybe tweak things here and there.

Thanks for your input. After posting I took a chance and looked at some orchid images and there it was! It's called a vanda orchid.

I've had gritty BC before but I dont' think it was due to the sugar used, problably the ambient temp and the mixing itself. When it happened i changed from Great value brand to dixie crystal and found great value was much better. So that's what I'm sticking with.By the way, the Shur Fine brand of shortening still has transfats.
