  1. OC MD is home of Thrasher's French fries, Fisher's caramel corn and Trimper's rides. Doesn't get much REALER than that!
  2. Breakfast! 2016 (Part 2)

    I always steam my eggs now. I saw it on America's Test Kitchen and it works for both soft- and hard-cooked. Easier to peel, too, it seems to me.
  3. Breakfast! 2016 (Part 2)

    I agree completely with less mayo for egg salad. When I was looking for help to make perfect egg salad, folks here advised me to use much less mayo than I thought would be necessary and taste. I probably use a third of what I used to!
  4. Just my 2 cents - a cold Italian sub is the food of the gods and NJ is the place to get one.

    Thank you! I'm so glad that you liked the cake! It is a favorite here. Nice to be missed, too!
  6. Dinner 2016 (Part 7)

    Hello, everyone! I know I've been gone for a long time, but not by choice. I've been dealing with my mother's health issues and hospitalization. I'm now living with her temporarily and not doing any interesting cooking. I've had some free time in the last couple of days and have been trying to catch up. Really loving all the posts in the dinner, breakfast and sweets threads! Please know that I miss everyone here and I miss being involved! Thanks to those who have missed me and I'm hoping that I'll be able to contribute starting in September.
  7. hey

    how have you been?  was thinking about you just the other day



  8. Dinner 2016 (Part 2)

    rotuts – re: the celery – that’s why it’s on the side like that. I actually like celery a lot – just to crunch a stick of it with salt or PB, but I don’t care for it in salads, but Mr. Kim does, so I serve it on the side. Suzi – I LOVE your white trash dinner! I would enjoy that tonight in place of my leftovers (I really don’t care for leftovers for dinner – though I can eat the same sandwich for lunch every day for a week!) kayb – that corn looks great! What’s your secret? Norm – I like the look of your gravy. How do you make it? Shelby – oh, my DEAR! Chicken liver – FRIED! I adore them, but no one else does, so I never make them. Yours look so perfect! Last night I tried a new recipe from Cooking Light magazine for Honey-Lime Drumsticks w/ snow peas and brown rice: The sauce for the drumsticks included soy sauce, honey, oil, ginger, lime juice and garlic and was incredibly flavorful. I will certainly be making this one again. We decided that it would be good with pork tenderloin, too. The rice mixture had some of the lime rind in it, but was still a little bland. I added some ponzu sauce and that helped a lot. The snow peas were the fresh steam-in-the-bag type and the steaming worked just fine, but every single snow pea had a hard string and had to be ‘de-strung’ on the plate. Extremely irritating.

    Shelby – thanks for the bean information. I’ll be trying that! Dinner last night started with a salad, of course: Very bland looking plate: But it tasted great. Oven fried pork chop, whipped potatoes, Dana’s broccoli and cauliflower (mostly cauliflower) au gratin and rolls. That gratin is wonderful – one of our favorite side dishes:
  10. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2015–2016)

    rotuts - Never, ever green peppers! No celery, either, if Momma makes it. I don't mind a little celery, chopped fine and sauteed. I detest big crunchy hunks of it in soup. This soup is just potatoes, carrots, peas, corn, green beans and cabbage. Simmered long with canned tomatoes and some pasta added towards the end. I sometimes grate some Parm over the top before serving. Or I'll toss in a rind if I have it.
  11. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2015–2016)

    Anna – gorgeous sandwich! Makes me wish I had a chicken! Lunch a couple of days ago was my mother’s vegetable soup: And a fried egg sandwich:
  12. I make tahini cookies, too. The recipe I use is slightly different. Darienne gave me the recipe originally. They are unusual and delicious. I made them for our church Holiday Market last November and they sold VERY quickly. One change that I made was to use smokehouse almonds. Nice!
  13. Thanks for the Crepes – it was nerve wracking! And, yes, I think that your pan should be much easier. I’m not sure I’ll ever want to cook anything but a chocolate cake in this pan. I don’t think I’d care for the same thickness of flour as a coating. Shain – love the idea of using tahini paste in baklava! Thanks to everyone for the nice comments about that cake. Brownies for the youth group at church: I'm embarassed to say that they are just Ghirardelli mix, but I’ve yet to make a from scratch recipe that is as good as this mix.
  14. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2015–2016)

    Lunch yesterday: This sandwich is my old standby. It has been my go-to comfort food since I can remember. I’m really into tomatoes lately, it seems.
  15. I am among the few that actually like CK. Not wildly, but I enjoy watching him. I also respect what he created. But, I LOVE Bridget and Julia and am disappointed when they aren't on a show. So I will be fine with the change.
