I think Joybird's site crashed...I keep getting a "page not available" message. And the link for "customize your chair here" redirects back to this page! (cue tears, because I really want to enter!)

This is the second time in as many days I've read an article praising romesco sauce - I think it's a sign I should give it a shot!

Your "spaghetti pie" recipe sounds an awful lot like noodle kugel. And I've never known anyone to make the same recipe as anyone else. It's also really customize-able!

Dang, and I thought it was operator error on my part! I bought the Trader Joe's tri-color quinoa, too, and it always gets mushy. Guess I'll have to use this stuff up fast and go back to segregating my ancient grains...

And a good food processor will last forever, too! My mom got her Cuisinart for a wedding gift (nearly 30 years ago now) and eventually upgraded to a fancier model, so she gave it to me! I don't use it nearly as often as I should - this post has inspired me to try more things with it!

I normally use mine for hummus or shredding veggies in a hurry, but I'm going to try pizza dough and challah soon.

I don't have a stand mixer...could I do this in the food processor with the plastic blade? I know that's how my mom makes her challah.

I cut into my whole ginger, and it was rotten! Had to add extra powdered ginger. Next time I'd probably up the ginger and the red pepper flakes, but it's really good. I served it over a baked sweet potato as you recommended, and the lemony, coconut-ty, rich sauce soaks into the potato flesh and it's delicious! Will definitely make this again.

Good timing! My roommate and I are about to paint two walls in our living room and one in our dining nook area (wouldn't really call it a dining room in our apt) a pretty gray-blue.
