THose are good prices. I saw an all-clad roaster at William Asheley in Toronto and it was $399! I was gob smacked. Looks like I need to shop around.


What is the Best Roasting Pan for Holiday Cooking? | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn

I used to toast left over pancakes but I found they got too crisp on the outside - I like a soft, cakey pancake - so now I place a frozen pancake on a plate; tent it with an upside down bowl and steam heat it in the microwave. Much yummier in my opinion.

BTW, Here's my pancake recipe in case anyone needs one:

I think it could be designed to remsemble a piece of furniture and really work - like a heavy duty armoire type thing...

I'm stoked for tablet technology- as a magazine writer and cookbook author I am totally inspired. But, I'm not going to buy one for a few years. If apple needs beta testers they can call me up but I need more features and more periodical content before I take the plunge.

Love this post! My son is a lego fanatic. He makes amazing stuff out of lego but nothing useful like these creations.

Hard cider is really trending up -- especially iced cider which is a dessert wine choice that is growing in popularity.

Yeah, I think I'd core them, too. Or, just quarter them and slice off the core edge. That said, the idea is a good one!

This is a great book! Julie and I are acquainted and I know how much she put into these recipes and photos - I'd be gobsmacked if every recipe didn't work perfectly!

I've recently been enjoying Bali long peppercorns for flavouring stocks and shellfish cooking water:

Nice one! My summer salads for hot days have been a very simple mussel and clam salad and an even simpler watermelon and feta salad that I have made, literally, 10 times in the last month. I'm addicted!

I had a spoon rest and used it daily until it broke. I've since gone back to using a plate but I'll likely get one again when I see one while I'm shopping.

I drank civet coffee (it was delicious) but I'd never do the bird's nest soup. Do you know what that nest is made of? Shiver!

Very interesting. These are the same size and colour as the berries sold here in Toronto as blackberries. I've never found them that delicious - just tart and juicy. Maybe I've never actually had a true blackberry and that's why I'm not impressed.

YOu've inspired me to reconsider the biases I wrote about in this post:

Cute but I love filling and this looks like a concept that is more about pastry than filling.

I'm with you! I actually like tuna salad sandwiches for breakfast, too.

I love mussels, too. Your post reminds me of a story my husband told me other day about seeing a whole lobster carcass in the garbage when he was a little kid right after his family moved to Montreal. He was terrified because he thought that his new city was home to huge, monster bugs!

Seafood can be odd for the uninitiated but it's worth exploring, isn't it?

I like my cobbler a bit more fruity. I think I'd double the fruit layer.

I use my hand held sprayer and dish brush to clean my strainer. If I have any worries about lingering stuff, I pour water out of the boiling tea kettle over it.

When I was doing research for my book Last Dinner on the Titanic, my research of Edwardian ice cream called this style of ice cream American ice cream and custard based ones French.
