I also use pepperplate app. If there's a recipe, even in an older magazine, I can often find it online, import into pepperplate, then can pass the paper copy of the magazine on.

Pepperplate is a great app, they even have a button that you can add to your toolbar, and import an online recipe with one click. Does not work with every website, but it gives you the option to import manually, with just couple copy and pastes.
I use it a lot. As I recall, it was even free!

Ditto on the Pepperplate comments. I love it for shopping lists, menu planner, cooking timer, best of all is the "add to Pepperplate" button they recently gave us for just zipping a recipe into the Pepperplate app from your computer. Very handy indeed.

Wondering about making this in a bundt pan and drizzling remaining caramel sauce over top??? (layer cakes are a challenge for me!)

Pickled Beets! Cylindrical beets like the variety Taunus make it really easy to get uniform slices (they are shaped like carrots, but thicker!)

Look for pointed-head cabbage, it is much milder and I think, sweeter. My 82-year-old mom is NOT a fan of cabbage, but she loves the pointed head, cooked or raw!

I have found the Cooks Illustrated light and fluffy buttermilk pancakes to be the best I've ever eaten. You add the egg yolks and whites separately, and somehow magic is made. It's around on the Internet, if you google it.


Craving: Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple Syrup

simplest, most refreshing (esp. in this hot weather) salad: med-thin sliced fennel, shaved parm, salt and fresh ground pepper, juice of half lemon plus olive oil over all. Oh, I am craving as I type. It is wonderfully cooling in this warmth and humidity.

Tiainspace, try the French green, sometimes called lentilles de Puy - they get much less mushy than regular brownish, reddish lentils!! But you still don't want to cook them very long......

I discovered French green lentils, which hold their shape very well when cooked, and am just crazy for them. I think I could eat them every day, with a dijon mustard vinaigrette and little cubes of carrot and parsnip mixed in. Also there is a butternut squash seed oil (www.wholeheartedfoods.com) that seems like a match made in heaven - very deep, nutty flavor that goes so well with the lentils, especially warm. Sublime. So glad to connect with other lentil fans!

If you like crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside has browns, you will be in heaven when you make them in your cast iron skillet. Makes are super crust on anything! Enjoy!

My biggest challenge is TIME and planning - when I get home at 5:30 or 6:00 p.m., it already feels so late....I know I should plan ahead - any tips for make-ahead??
