  1. Tomato Burgundy Soup

    Thinking of having this as a 1st course on an at-home New Year's Eve, just the two of us....followed by a cold seafood buffet (lobster, scallops, shrimp). What else to round out the night?
  2. I had a cheap bottle from TJ's that was an ugni/viognier blends that just tasted like.......feet ............bad stuff !
  3. Frozen yogurt flavors

    I found my old recipe.....probably should be updated for modern times (raw egg whites, no ice cream maker) but it has good bones Pina Colada Frozen Yogurt This recipe contains uncooked egg whites. the mixture could be processed in an ice cream maker without the egg white addition but will be harder. Ingredients 1 envelope gelatin 1/4 cup water 1 can (8 1/2 oz) crushed pineapple with juice 1 can (8 3/4 oz) cream of coconut 1 lg container (16 oz) plain yogurt 2 Tbs. rum 2 egg whites 3 Tbs. sugar Instructions Heat water in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on high; sprinkle gelatin over, stir to dissolve. Blend pineapple, coconut cream, yogurt and rum in blender until smooth. Add gelatin to blender mixture, blend briefly. Pour into 9X9 pan. Freeze until partially frozen, stirring occasionally. (2-3 hours) Beat egg whites until soft peaks form, incorporate sugar. Spoon partially frozen yogurt mixture into a bowl; beat until smooth. Fold in egg whites. Freeze again until softly frozen (1-2 hours).
  4. Making mozzarella @ home

    Tried it last night with the same results as Fat Guy
  5. I just had duck egg Benedict (well, not exactly) ...........eggs poached a la Maggiethecat (perfect!), beautiful tomatoes from Paso Robles' Peacock Farms, crisp bacon and hollandaise. Wow, awesome ! I noticed that the whites were a little firmer than hens' eggs and more translucent. Delicious.
  6. Me, too ! We'll be in Tallinn on May 28...........

  11. Salt Preserved Oranges

    Andie~ I usually almost-quarter mine, vertically. (Don't know why I don't cut all the way through? ) I agree that the salt<juice penetrates better. How many are you making? In jars?
  12. Salt Preserved Oranges

    Andi~thanks for the link to the old thread. I saw that I DID make some spiced oranges with great success in 2005 (!) If I remember correctly, they were wonderful with vegetables, in risotto, chicken, pork............... Pretty good stuff. I made it just like I made the lemons.....
