Prickly Pear Lemonade! I was amazed and pleased to find prickly pears in IGAs (Caputo's & EuroFresh) in my suburb NW of Chicago. Haven't looked recently, don't know their season.

The 2 sites that I referenced to make the PP-lemonade are:

and

I love the Watermelon Basil Aqua Fresca from Rachel of Coconut and Lime.

something isn't working when I click on the "Rhubarb bars by Lara Ferroni" link. The browser address bar has the URL, but I see just an empty page. Same thing when I tried to go to www dot laraferroni dot com.

Is there another site that has this recipe?

Ask if you can put in picture rails up at the ceiling. You could pitch it as a value-added feature for future tenants.

I've got to give an enthusiastic second for Susan Purdy's "Pie in the Sky".

My husband has a temporary contract in rural mountainous Arizona (7000ft). I've been very glad to have the book. So far I've more been using it as a reference/guide on how to alter other recipes, but I've got plans to work my way through the yeast bread chapter recipe by recipe. Nearly all the recipes appeal to me.

I would be grateful for some high altitude pointers. I recently moved from Illinois (elevation: 600 ft) to eastern Arizona (7000 ft).

I have an ICE-50 too. I LOVE it. I don't know if you'd want to, but I purchased an extra bucket and dasher from the Cuisinart website. I think they were less than $20 before shipping. Those make multiple batches a breeze.

I also bought a cheap placemat to put under the monster. This way, I can easily push it into the corner where it lives most of the time, and I don't have to lift to pull it out.

I particularly enjoy the ability to go from impulse to ice cream in less than 2 hours if I have the ingredients. I haven't tried it yet, but I have read that the ICE-50 (probably most ice cream makers at that...) can make really good slushy drinks.

Right now our favorite is Basil Ice cream from Haalo's Cook Anything at least Once blog
