Ms Pibb

"I drink a lot of Diet Coke (yes, yes, I know it's bad for me, but I don't drink soda with sugar in it) and sometimes I want something different. I recently came across a drink called Malta Goya - technically a non-alcoholic dark beer - which is quite tasty, but alas, has quite a few calories. Its' aroma is nice, very strong molasses, though the drink isn't as strong tasting as you'd expect. In any case, on a whim I tried mixing my Diet Coke together with the Malta Goya, and... oh my goodness, I've made something like Mr. Pibb! If you like Mr. Pibb but can't get it in your neck of the woods, you might want to give this a try. :)"

Ready In:


  • 1 (12 ounce) can Diet Coke
  • 8 -12 ounces of malta goya malt liquor (actually "malt beverage" not liquor, is non-alcoholic, and is available at many Mexican groceries)


  • Pour the Diet Coke into a very large mug or glass.
  • Add 8 ounces (1 cup) of the Malta Goya. Taste it and see if you like it as it is, or want to add more; add more to taste, if you like.
  • Add ice cubes, and enjoy!
  • Note: apparently, a lot of folks who drink Malta Goya also add it to 7-Up, which would also be nice. I don't usually keep 7-Up around, but I'll get some and give it a try to make a report to you in the future. Come to think of it, brownies made with Malta Goya would be delicious -- hmmm! :) Ooo, Malta Goya floats, that'd be really nice -- .

<p>It's simply this: I love to cook! :) <br /><br />I've been hanging out on the internet since the early days and have collected loads of recipes. I've tried to keep the best of them (and often the more unusual) and look forward to sharing them with you, here. <br /><br />I am proud to say that I have several family members who are also on RecipeZaar! <br /><br />My husband, here as <a href=>Steingrim</a>, is an excellent cook. He rarely uses recipes, though, so often after he's made dinner I sit down at the computer and talk him through how he made the dishes so that I can get it down on paper. Some of these recipes are in his account, some of them in mine - he rarely uses his account, though, so we'll probably usually post them to mine in the future. <br /><br />My sister <a href=>Cathy is here as cxstitcher</a> and <a href=>my mom is Juliesmom</a> - say hi to them, eh? <br /><br />Our <a href=>friend Darrell is here as Uncle Dobo</a>, too! I've been typing in his recipes for him and entering them on R'Zaar. We're hoping that his sisters will soon show up with their own accounts, as well. :) <br /><br />I collect cookbooks (to slow myself down I've limited myself to purchasing them at thrift stores, although I occasionally buy an especially good one at full price), and - yes, I admit it - I love FoodTV. My favorite chefs on the Food Network are Alton Brown, Rachel Ray, Mario Batali, and Giada De Laurentiis. I'm not fond over fakey, over-enthusiastic performance chefs... Emeril drives me up the wall. I appreciate honesty. Of non-celebrity chefs, I've gotta say that that the greatest influences on my cooking have been my mother, Julia Child, and my cooking instructor Chef Gabriel Claycamp at Seattle's Culinary Communion. <br /><br />In the last couple of years I've been typing up all the recipes my grandparents and my mother collected over the years, and am posting them here. Some of them are quite nostalgic and are higher in fat and processed ingredients than recipes I normally collect, but it's really neat to see the different kinds of foods they were interested in... to see them either typewritten oh-so-carefully by my grandfather, in my grandmother's spidery handwriting, or - in some cases - written by my mother years ago in fountain pen ink. It's like time travel. <br /><br />Cooking peeve: food/cooking snobbery. <br /><br />Regarding my black and white icon (which may or may not be the one I'm currently using): it the sea-dragon tattoo that is on the inside of my right ankle. It's also my personal logo.</p>
