I *had to* know what was going on in the main photo of this post, thinking there was some sort of awesome herb-cheese thing, and was disappointed to find out that it's frozen olive oil-herb cubes, though that seems like a smart idea... Maybe hunger took over the visual part of my brain...

...my first thought was also pizza, or anything that might be cooked in like a brick oven, once you get the hang of checking on the temp/cook time, like small loaves of 'old world' breads? Do you have an oven thermometer (they're really inexpensive- mine was less than $5)...? I would be curious what temp the high setting peaks out at...when you find out, you could check out recipes that bake at that specific temp range. I am married to a firefighter, though, SO I must include that if the oven doesn't peak and just continues to get hot, hot, hot, be very careful that you don't accidentally burn that sweet cottage down! *grin*

I won't drink a cuppa PG (Tips -black tea) without a bit of milk and sugar, but I also don't know anyone that drinks PG for their health... I do enjoy my green tea with nothing added, though -better than coffee if I need to stay awake, too...

I agree with about 3 tbsp for a whole lemon; produce (especially lemons/limes) can get really expensive where we live SO I tend to use bottled lemon juice -it's not as fresh + flavorful, but it works...

I honestly cannot remember the last time I washed any veggies or fruits before we ate them, from the grocery store(s) or farmers' market(s), and our family has never had any issues...maybe we've just been 'lucky' -but I'm not going to start washing them now. I'm also 'guilty' of sharing food with dogs and horses, and not washing my hands after running around all morning with both, before breaking outside for a quick lunch...

@vintagejenta -yes! I've gone as far as to write the expiration date of my baking powder in a bold color on the calendar in our kitchen, because even though I bake quite often, I rarely think to check the date on my baking powder...
