Ha, I had a similar experience---so much shopping! Also would warn everyone to be extra careful about checking all the ingredients that require their own recipes---I got thrown for a loop after I realized that the toasted rice powder was such a lengthy multi-hour process, not just...toasting some rice.

Garlic scapes are also great on the grill!

These look lovely! Do they feel pretty stable? Would hate to have a tip-over disaster.

Love this. It's an ideal moment when food and place (and the people we love) remind us how lucky we are.

So, so beautiful! Did you already mention where your dining table came from?

A great opportunity to make a non-alcoholic punch! (Though I agree, totally fine to ask friends to byob.)

Just relaying what the Whole Foods clerk told me when I commented on their new absence from the shelves.

I bet this would be even better made with a true lambic--I'm pretty sure Lindemans is made with artificial flavors and sweeteners. (Which is why Whole Foods recently pulled it from their shelves.)

Other good fruit beers to try include Cascade Brewing's sours. They've recently expanded distribution quite a lot.

Love this dish. Recently had it at Pok Pok in Portland...the contrast of rich/salty/sweet is so perfect.

Love them in muffins--just take your favorite blueberry muffin recipe and substitute currants. They'll be a little more tart and zippy but delicious!

Agreed! Love the low energy use of the slow cooker and how little it heats up the apartment. Stay cool, everyone!

I didn't watch the video--but is this all for ipad only? What about those of us who don't have iphones, ipads, or anything but old-fashioned computers?

It's a smart way to make money off of old content, but to be honest, I'd prefer an active website (full of new stuff, of course.)

Love them. Just made an olive oil cake w/ sour cherries added in--so tasty.

Make pickles, make jam, pass them out as favors. Make cakes, even. But don't be the caterer on the day of.

Move beyond Blue Moon to something tastier in the same style, like Boulevard's ZŌN. Summer beers are a good place for newbies to start--flavorful but not overpowering options like Goose Island's summer and Bell's Oberon...

Good piece--I agree, the burr grinder makes a huge difference.
