Um, a kennel is where dogs are bread. :S

A kennel can also be where a dog is kept, whether by the owners or as a hotel.

Panna Cotta for Italian dessert also?
Level 86

I guess it's technically "cream-filled," since the whole thing is basically just cream, but it doesn't fit the clue as well as cannoli.

I'd agree on panna cotta. It literally means cooked cream.... You can't get a dessert that's fuller of cream than that!

I had trouble with one of them because i though it said an animal that eats its own feces, I had to read it three times before I got it right.

That would only be an acceptable clue if "Donald" were spelled with two Ns.

Anise, while stated in the clue, is also an herb, just like fennel. Aniseed to be technical. So perhaps you might want to say licorice flavor with yellow flowers. Also a perennial is a PLANT that lives for more than two years, it doesn't have to necessarily be a flower.

Anise only has one n.

Can you add some alternative spellings for "whinny"? I mean it's an onomatopoeia anyway so as long as it sounds out correctly then it should be accepted. Winnie, Winny, or winnee even perhaps?

Millennia should also be accepted for millennium.
Level 64
Feb 19, 2018
Millennia is plural - and it asks for just one thousand years, not many multiples of it, so it is incorrect.
Level 83
May 2, 2024
Be reasonable. The question about the dessert seems to be asking for a singular answer, but only the plural is accepted. This situation is just the same in reverse.

If you cross a male horse with a jenny you get a hinny. Just being trivial.

How about blenny for small fish? They're pretty small...

To be precise cannoli are not filled with cream at all.

The original sicilian cannoli recipe wants them to be filled with a mixture of sheep's ricotta (don't know if "cottage cheese" is a correct translation of "ricotta") and sugar (+chocolate drops if you like them). Honestly, this is better than any cream filling you might think of.

I agree with the comment above. Cannoli should be filled with ricotta and mascarpone plus sugar and other (usually sweet) ingredients - the filling is therefore 'creamy' but is not cream. On the other hand, panna cotta is actually made of cream and also contains double n.

There is a small fish called a blenny.
