Well, it'll always be houska to me too. Nice though to see the information. Now I wonder if our Slovenian strukla is properly named! The linked video to how to braid it was great. I have always struggled with the four- way braid.

Looks so wonderful! Good-looking and sensible lighting over the island and shelf area. I'm wondering what kind of finish Jonathan put on his island butcher block top.

It's a beautiful kitchen! There is pleasure in working in a new clean space! As for the space above the cabinets, after our recent kitchen remodel, I'm aware of the need at times to keep the soffits in place--something's in there, believe me (pipes, electric, or ducts, etc.). And the work triangle seems fine to me. At least I would be happy with it. The window is lovely with all that light coming in.

I have the same faucet and really like it--one of my favorite picks for our kitchen remodel.

Looks so delicious. And as I was just cooking for a friend with celiac's (gluten allergy), I found out that the cornstarch in your lovely photo is gluten-free. Not all are guaranteed, but Argo is.

It would interest me greatly to have someone know their cholesterol numbers before and after a period of a BV6 diet. Did you happen to do that, Emma? Seems you would have mentioned it already if you had.

I love this kitchen! Lots of light, bright and pretty. Great job-I'd be so happy to cook in your kitchen and just hang out.

This was delicious using plain unsweetened soy milk instead of whole milk. I didn't have the squash and really wanted to make it right away for just two, so used the mandoline to slice two large red potatoes. I microwaved the slices first with a spoon of water in a covered dish for three minutes, to quick-start the cooking process (started dinner kind of late). Followed the rest of the instructions and it came out really delicious, even without the squash which I hope to use next time! Thanks for the recipe!

This looks very good to me minus the oysters. Actually as I was raised in a Slovenian-American family in Cleveland (great grandfather immigrated from Bled area in early 1900's) I grew up eating Strukla. This also is a pasta dish with eggs and cinnamon sugar. A kind of giant boiled noodle coiled around a filling of softly cooked eggs and breadcrumbs and lots of cinnamon sugar. The meatless (or seafood) factor was a necessity with the Roman Catholic church's fasting rules of the past.

Didn't beat the marshmallow mixture long enough, following Martha's instructions for the piped peeps. Will try this recipe tomorrow, but meanwhile I will freeze the few I piped as they are too soft. One note: I did tint the mix yellow as you mentioned tinting with food coloring, but I was sorry when I remembered how much I like to bite into the colored sugar and see the white fluff underneath. Won't tint it when I try again! Thanks for an awesome idea, I just love any kind of Peeps!

I have a red Cuisinart 5 qt. oven I bought a few years ago at T.J. Maxx; there were a couple of chips on the edge of the lid, so it was cheap. The chips don't seem to have made a difference in the pot's performance. I like that the lid's knob is also made of enameled metal--safe in high heat. I used the pot recently to make Faith's Baked Mushroom Risotto with Caramelized Onions--delicious!

Think of the "breakfast cookie" as an economical alternative to commercial breakfast bars, granola bars, energy bars...

People just want this form of food available, so why not make them at home more cheaply, then wrap and freeze for an ample supply?

I love Ree! And for gudnis, according to her blog, she wears Cover Girl "Crazy for Coffee" lipstick. Hope the TV stuff doesn't ruin her, she seems so practical and grounded.

Usually can't run it in the middle of the night, as our water softener or the water system's iron filter runs anywhere from 2 to 5 a.m. Water can't be used during those regenerations (we have well water).
