Cooking is what tends to ground me when I come home and right now I only have to cook for myself and my husband. I'd say all together I spend about 30-45 minutes from start to finish preparations. I like eating earlier so we have more time to spend together catching up and just relaxing so between cooking and eating, dinner is about an hour and 15 minutes!

The first time I used my large Le Cruset on our glass cook-top it cracked. The crack runs from one side of the top through our largest burner down to the bottom edge! I have used cast iron after on the smaller burners but largely because I know it is getting replaced soon. I would just tell you to be extremely careful and that there is a very real risk that the top could crack.

We had friends help us with our last move which will be the last time for that. Professionals, I hope, are much better at not banging up walls and furniture!

Maybe try an Asian twist on Scotch Eggs with Tempura? An interesting find, indeed. I would have done the same thing!

I did the EXACT same thing....damn you Costco. Thanks for publishing this question! Now I know how to face the massive amounts of Boca in my freezer without feeling guilty or wasteful!

I posted a Spicy Rhubarb Chutney recipe recently over at www.romantichippie.com. It is great on sandwiches or to pair with crostini and manchego for a quick appetizer. Hope it helps you!
