    Just discovered this forum. After reading some of the recipes on here I definitely have some learning to do but here was today's effort.. 2 oz Maker's mark 1/2 oz green chartreuse 1/2 oz cherry liqueur 1/2 oz vya sweet vermouth Juice of half a Meyer lemon couple dashes of Angostura proportions can use some tweaking but flavor wise its right therr
  5. I've never had the patience for baking but I've had some free time of late and figured why not! I mostly used this recipe 4 hour baguette The shape of the baguettes were a bit off, as were the slashes but I guess that'll come with more practice. They were baked in a 450 degree oven with a cup or so of ice cubes on the over floor. Apoligize for the crappy cell phone pics It had a great crust with a nice light inside; the flavor could've been a lil deeper but for a short time frame I can't complain. All in all it was definitely enough to get me to delve in to bread baking deeper.

    Dinner! 2008

    The local market had a some pretty good looking porterhouse for sale so picked up some for dinner. Pan seared and basted with some clarified butter and duck fat, finished the strip side in the oven. Ignore the 20 year old plate All done
