Clotilde, no problem. Google did redeem itself a couple of days later when I found an Italian website with an almost similar recipe and it translated it to English. =)

I think I might go to the res ...

Had this at a restaurant one night. It was a spicy bean and sausage stew in tomato sauce. Took the leftovers home and upon a second simmering, it tasted even better. Especially with black pepper and r ...

My freezer isn't big enough for frozen meals, either homemade or store bought. =(

In some urban districts it is actually illegal for teachers to cook with their students or to serve any food in class that is not processed and pre-packaged.

That sounds like some kind of a bad jo ...

The truth is, for many of us any time is soup time

We have soup quite a lot here. Usually something spicy like tom yum or tom kha gai (coconut galangal chicken soup ...

I heard about this trend going on in the US and a bit of it was spreading to the Singaporean supermarkets too. Before I left, I was seeing a huge increase in pre-marinated meats at the deli and meat s ...

Barbara, I'm now intrigued. What on earth is that magical Thermomix you have?

As for rice cookers, I recently realised that I've been spoiled by my mom's fancy, shmancy Japanese rice cooker that h ...

An Aga, a chest freezer and one of those clay charcoal burners my grandma used for slow cooking.

I used to cook with a microwave oven and a hot water flask when I lived in a rented room. Sure makes ...

KYHeirloomer, oops, I forgot to include information about kneading. I do it by hand. Knead, give it a quarter turn, fold over and knead. That's the, erm, pattern, I follow. I think you might be right ...

Other than that, what sorts of problems have you encountered? There are enough of us here who bake that I'm sure we can walk you through them.

Thanks. =) IF the bread decides to rise at all, I alwa ...
