  1. You betcha! 😁 First up, though, I want to try tempering chocolate, possibly tomorrow. I have dark, milk and white on hand.
  2. @CanadianHomeChef No, not yet. I got the dark chocolate a couple of days ago but then I decided I may as well try the milk and white chocolate while I was at it. Theee two I bought today. The three require tempering at different temperatures. I expect I may do some tinkering tomorrow. I will be posting my results here, for sure.
  3. @CanadianHomeChef You are fearless. Should work though.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Something called English Cottage Pie from the cookbook Cooking Light Global Kitchen.
  6. I just remembered that America's Test Kitchen had a segment on Millionaire's shortbread. This is available on-line for those interested. Their caramel layer consists of: 1 can sweetened condensed milk 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup white corn syrup 8 T unsalted butter, cut in small pieces 1/2 t salt 1/2 cup whipping cream. This was cooked over medium heat to between 236 and 239F, stirring 9nce in a while. I have never been able to make this successfully and plan on giving this recipe a shot one day.
  7. Had my first perfectly poached egg this morning, cooked at 183F for exactly 5 minutes. Runny yolk, set but soft white. Nice to know that I can duplicate this with ease.

    Thai red curry beef over rice.
  14. We went through this also. The end result was well worth it. Our kitchen was completely gutted and I still have this image of one of our cats, sitting there, peering in and looking from side to side as if to say "where did the kitchen go"?
  15. @boilsover Re: your no. 5. Do you live in a hot climate?
  16. Those are amazing pictures of amazing scenery. I'm hoping there are many more to come.

    How thick was your cod?
  18. Korean Short Ribs done in the 6 qt. and Spicy Sesame Noodles and Vegetables done in the 3 qt. I actually got the timing right such that both were ready for tonight's dinner at the same time. That doesn't always happen.

  20. Welcome! And, may I say, nice chocolates.
  21. https://www.davidlebovitz.com/shakshuka-bread-recipe/ This is the David Lebovitz recipe.
  22. @shain when you say the egg was fully liquid, do you mean raw?
  23. I am going to bake some cheddar bay biscuits today in the CSO. Do I bake them on regular convection bake setting or the bread setting? Is the bread setting only for yeasted breads?
  24. King Arthur Flour also sells black cocoa powder.
  25. I don't peel either and after they are cooked, a hand mill takes care of the seeds and skins.
