    RIP Holly Moore

    I logged in here after not having logged in for a while to see this message. I never personally knew Holly, but remember his post. I am saddened to hear this.
  2. I just signed up, three weeks late, so I have some catch up. I plan on getting the book as well. This is exciting! Thank you for posting this!
  3. For me it depends on the book. Now all my bread cookbooks that I consider "classics" I buy on paper (ie: Crust and Crumb, The Bread Bakers Apprentice). But for some others that are ones that I like, bought, but don't see it becoming a classic, then I get the ebook. (like diet cookbooks, 20 meals with 20 ingredients, etc LOL)
  4. I work a very busy job, as most people I suppose. When it comes to lunch time I am lucky to get time to eat. Let alone go out anywhere outside the office eat (It is a rare day that happens for me). Short of getting a new job, I have to pack my lunches. The problem? I am in a serious packed lunch rut. I have looked around on the internet, I have checked out cookbooks, everything seems either 1) geared toward kids or 2) made of wraps and sandwiches. I am SICK of wraps and sandwiches! Salads always work, but then I get tired of that too. Storage is not an issue, there is a refrigerator and microwaves. I am in an office environment, so keeping stuff fresh is not an issue. I just desperately need to "mix it up". Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your thoughtful replies!
  5. Try looking around the internet for "paleo diet". Tons of recipes are out there, the "diet" is mostly very low fodmap.
  6. I have Peterson's sauces, but none of this others. I will look into that. I have not heard of Glorious French Food. Another one to look into.
  7. Awesome websites! Thank you! I want to learn french now so I can read them in french.
  8. I have not posted here in a while and I found this thread. I so very sorry to hear this, much love and condolences to his family. I have enjoyed reading his writings, he will be missed.
  9. Yes, classic French in the sense of the term. Like if I was to go to a classic french cooking school, what kind of education would I get? -> those are the books I want to start cooking and learning from.
  10. One of my favorite things to do is armchair travel and try foods from all over the world, at home. So I got to thinking, what would it take to give myself an education in classic french cooking at home. What kind of books, websites, reading and cooking would I need? I already have a pretty well stocked kitchen pots, pans, knives, etc. But what books would get me there? Thanks in advance for your kind replies!
  11. I went out and bought a brand new cusinart coffee maker. Spent a small fortune for their top of line maker. Four months later I have to send it back because it broke after one cleaning and refuses to brew a full pot of coffee, leaves water in the reservoir. I even followed the directions to a T. Yeah, quality has gone way down these days. Just like customer service.
  12. I have been watching this thread closely while looking for the book. I agree, out of all the different "power bars" I have tried they are mostly vitamin pills with sugar. YUCK! I am going to see if this book is in my local library if not, just buy it. I cannot wait to try some of these recipes! edit to add: That whole blog looks good. Thanks for posting that!
  13. I read through this thread with great delight! I have a mountain of cukes comming out of the garden this time of year and I had no clue what to do with them beyond cuke, tomato, vinegar salad. I love the idea of cuke sammiches, I wonder if smoked salmon on that would be good.
