  1. Why not make a simple spinach soup and freeze it? We've never had leftover spinach. If we can't get through the current fridge full of vegetables, I'll roast them and then freeze them...or make soup. I've even made lettuce soup and was stunned at how good it was.

    Easter baking

    Not baking...but some folks like those filled chocolate eggs.
  3. Very good point. Ed and I have certain skills which we have offered on occasions to others. Some are delighted by the offer of help...others are not. At all. Added: I would say to let it go. Perhaps when his chocolate does not sell well, he'll be more amenable to learning.

    Food recalls

    Thank you as always, CD. It's always good to find out that the UPC code of the possible salmonella sprouts doesn't match the one you have in the fridge.
  5. We built the kitchen in the farmhouse before I started 'COOKING'. Before that I just cooked. But then I also made beds and did laundry. So...the kitchen is too small for my newish obsession (13 years). My cookware is stored: in the kitchen, in the master bedroom in a cabinet in one of the closets, in the dining room cabinet, and in the outdoor hallway cabinet. (Some call it a breezeway...but Ed says breezeways don't have doors.) And aluminum pans are in a Rubbermaid container in the cellar. And I have only one non-stick saute pan. And that's my sad story...

    New Kitchen

    Bosch dishwasher here. Wonderful unit.
  7. Also done here. And it's easier to grate from frozen.
  8. Ed was out doing groceries a few days ago and on the list was noted 'sliced almonds'. And he returned with slivered. Words were exchanged. The air was cool. Two days later, he returned the slivers to the store and bought the sliced at another. And in his wallet he carried the photo I had printed out as per his request:
  9. I would love your version. Still searching for the perfect recipe. My Mother's recipe was lost in the sands of time I guess. I'll pass on the whipped cream. I still have a freezer full of apple sauce from last fall's harvest.
  10. Glad of the smile...but here I go again. Whipped cream on gingerbread? I think not. I grew up eating gingerbread and the only topping ever offered was applesauce. I don't know about other Canadians. I've not made a study. In a similar vein, Canadians invariably (to my somewhat limited knowledge) always eat apple pie with cheddar cheese and yet I have yet to find one American sourced recipe which mentions cheese...only ice cream...and again whipped cream. Whipped cream on apple pie? A travesty in my not so humble opinion.
  11. I ❤️ ginger...as the kids would say. Ed has always said he doesn't like ginger, but has recently discovered that indeed he does. One of my favorites is Triple Ginger Ice Cream, an eG recipe posted by Food Man. And of course gingerbread recipes: Old Fashioned Gingerbread Cake from the Spruce Eats is a current favorite. Dark Chocolate coated Candied Ginger. Yummm. Recipe for candying the ginger from Andiesenji, my candying everything that moves mentor. And some years ago I actually tried to grow ginger. It was great joy but alas in the end resulted in nothing. And now I seem to have deleted the photos. Then there is the plethora of dishes which are made special by the addition of ginger. Thanks David Ross for this Cook-off topic. Found it. September 2009
  12. Twelve years on eGullet and thirteen years cooking.

  13. Your examples are certainly concoctions...but they are not concoctions of concoctions.
  14. This article appeared in my 1440 downloads this morning and I thought it worth posting. https://www.theguardian.com/food/2020/feb/13/how-ultra-processed-food-took-over-your-shopping-basket-brazil-carlos-monteiro?utm_source=join1440&utm_medium=email&utm_placement=longreads
