  1. i just got an insta pot and now i am looking for a good and informative cook book to rely upon. so far i have narrowed it down to two books 1. hip pressure cooking:fast, fresh, and flavorful by l.d.a. passaglia or 2. the healthy pressure cooker cookbook by j.a. zimmerman could you also give your reason for your choice i find it most difficult to choose from the amazon reviews and i would rather have a personal recommendation from an egulleteer thanks for all your help
  2. Brooklyn dining

    we are spending 5 days in october in brooklyn. our place is is in dumbo near cobble hill area. we need some recommendations for dinners not too far away from our home location. ethnic eating is a plus, but good food is a must. we don't want to go into manhattan. tia
  3. i just got a 6 qt ip and now wish i had a good book to join it. are there any recommendation for what book to use for a starter IPette
  4. i gave up on my home subscriptions, but find i still ilike to go over the mags. so i did the next best thing (at least to me), i gave our local library subscriptions to ci, food and wine, and fine cooking. this way i can satisfy my need to read, not accumulate all those magazine (that i usually stockpile) and perform a service to the library and the community of readers. makes me feel good. also i am using the internet more and more and then i store my favorite recipes on "save to nyt cooking"
  5. Berlin Restaurants

  6. Traditional Linzer Torte

  8. The Bread Topic (2014 –2015)

    dave w. love the look of your sourdough wheat boule. could you please post the recipe so i can give it a try. thanks aliénor
  9. on 24 October 2014 - 02:10 AM bethesdabakers wrote a note and posted a worksheet of ingredients for three types of bread. i made the 800gram micks sourdough. it really was wonderful but i think it was too short on salt. i waited thirty minutes after the first mix before adding the 8 grams of salt . i personally think it needs at least 15-16grms salt rather than 8 grams. otherwise the bread went well. took 40 minutes in a preheated gas oven at 410ºF
  10. this is what i made for a potluck bbq tonite. so easy and delicious
  11. Gefilte Fish

    do you think that this recipe of joan nathan's could be halved. i only have 9 or 10 people at our table and so i don't feel like making such a large amount. tia elark
  12. dejah - would love to see your recipe for hot and sour soup. i am just starting a cold and know that the soup will be a good soothing hellp for me. so looking forward to reading all about it tia
  13. anna -that manual slicer you bought for $14.99 is exactly the one we bought when we were living in denmark 1972-73. having three young boys at home it was great to have a manual slicer and not an electric menacing machine. i only wish i could find a replacement blade as mine is getting a bit dull. still good, though for sliceing homemade breads and sausages.
