PostForum: Cooking & Eating   Posted: Mon Apr 20, 2009 7:28 pm   Subject: ice cream/sorbet tips
I adore my little Cuisinart ice cream machine. It and my stick blender are an unstoppable duo of ice cream-makin' gadgetry. I've recently done a delightfully pink strawberry sour cream batch, and the ...

I love to experiment, but, being a single girl, I can't always handle all of the results. I love pomegranate molasses (for the uninitiated, it's just the juice concentrated until syrupy--I buy mine at ...

I got my first microplane about 2 years ago, in a minor bit of retail therapy at Crate and Barrel. The ease of zesting even soft meyer lemons absolutely converted me. I *had* to get my mom one, and no ...

PostForum: Cooking & Eating   Posted: Sat Aug 02, 2008 12:05 am   Subject: Danger!!!
I'm afraid of anything that sizzles too vigorously. This includes deep frying, and the kind of oven roasting that pops and splats loudly in the oven or smokes a little. I'm just fine doing high heat a ...

Heck yeah! Smile

Grate some garlic into olive oil, and rub on sliced zucchini (I usually slice it lengthwise, ~1/4" thick so you can handle it with tongs and not have it fall through the grill). Sprin ...

PostForum: Cooking & Eating   Posted: Thu Jun 12, 2008 12:00 am   Subject: olives
I generally find green olives a bit too salty for my taste, and kalamatas a bit bitter--though I confess I haven't really experimented with either. I probably ought to try them again one of these days ...

Hmm, I haven't made pizza in *forever( (it isn't terribly convenient for a singleton).

Are you looking for more traditional fare, or are you an anything-goes California-style pizza eater? (I'm fro ...

I ordered some BonBonBars for my mom for Valentine's Day (sweet, selfless daughter that I am... ok, I probably would have gotten some for myself if I wasn't a poor grad student living 1000mi away). Bu ...

My Dad always used to buy garlic presses (not that he ever used them--he doesn't cook and doesn't understand that kitchen clutter is a pain). I never really liked them. Maybe it was that they were che ...

I grew up with an ice cream maker (electric, but requiring ice and salt), so I *had* to get one when I moved out on my own--and the freezer bowl makes it really easy. I recently reclaimed it from my s ...

I've been enjoying my ice cream maker this summer as well. My base recipe is to puree fruit, add ~1/3c splenda (I'm diabetic), often ~2T lemon juice (or lime juice, or balsamic vinegar), perhaps ~2T-1 ...

I just made Clotilde's ratatouille over the weekend, and absolutely adore the leftovers (particularly delightful for the summer heat this week). I'll have to try increasing the temp next time, though, ...

Yeah, Whole Foods here in the west always has bulk cocoa nibs in tubs, sort of hidden near cheeses and such. They're Scharffen Berger, $16/lb, and the tubs are ~4oz (though I have seen an 8oz tub, and ...

That sounds like agua fresca, a very refreshing Mexican beverage and what made me realize that canteloupe and cucumber are disturbingly similar. As I recall, it involves pureeing your fruit (canteloup ...
