I'm not sure these trend statements actually mean anything beyond people eat what they like. Which doesn't actually seem like a trend to me....


Predicting the Next Big Thing: The Top Trends and Flavor Forecasts for 2013

We moved to Denver (Longmont) two years ago and I find that I need to make adjustments to many baking recipes. Normal recipes are OK, but I find that everything is a little flat and dense. I know the request was for a Kindle book, but I *highly* recommend the Pie In the Sky book by Susan Purdy. She demonstrates how there's not a one size fits all solution to fixing recipes and everything I've made from the book is great.

Graeters. Pure Awesomeness. (My favorite: coconut chip). But pay the premium and get it shipped from Ohio. The stuff in the grocery stores is not anywhere near as good.

I and my family are big fans of the breakfast bar recipe in the Nigella Express book. Oats, nuts, dried cranberry, coconut, condensed milk. Certainly not diet food, but they *really* stick with you.

Shady Lane - I see Nigella Lawson using some kind of chocolate biscuits all the time in recipes where I would use chocolate graham crackers. In her UK-version recipes she calls them "plain chocolate biscuits." So my guess is that those are probably your best substitute.

I'm definitely going to try this pi (pie). Yum.

I agree with see. If you know them pretty well, it can be a kind gesture. We try to clean up pretty well before a babysitter comes, but the kitchen usually gets the door closed. We don't have a dishwasher and one night a pretty good friend babysat for us who knows what a pain doing dishes is for us. When we came home she had done all of our dishes. Yes, I was a little embarrassed, but incredibly grateful. I knew she was doing it to help us.
