    Your Daily Sweets (2005-2012)

    Here's Prasantrin's Mango Pudding with fresh raspberries. Delicious and light. ←

    Another thing to consider is the price is based in Canadian dollars...still kinda pricey, but...

    Foraging for favorites

    Oh yeah...can't wait for the wild Cascade blackberries this year. Should be a bumper crop with the weather this summer! Fresh blackberry cobbler. YUM. And the price is exactly right! Robin

    The Old Original Bookbinders

    Bookbinders was one of the reasons I became interested in fine dining...back in '76 or so. Although I toughed thru 20 years of the electronic industry, I finally succumbed to culinary school, to fulfill my passion. Not sorry, but I _really_ wish more restaurants would offer benefits! Being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in my second term of culinary school really changed my whole dream...
  9. Does anyone know if there is still availability at the Bourdain 6:30 dinner?? If I'm to afford the dinner, I can't afford to call Brasa from Whidbey... I suppose I could reserve another time, if need be, but would rather be with the eGulleteers. Just to insure that someone will be there to slap me, should I become giddy. Thanks!

    vodka suggestions (merged)

    If you're mixing, then obviously don't spend any extra $$$...my personal favorite, and very cheap, btw, is Burnett's. Normally, I do Burnett's vanilla with cola, but their unflavored is FINE for dirty martinis. Even in WA state, it runs under $10 a fifth... Cheers! (where in the HELL did I put those damn olives???...)
  11. Terimah kasih...and it only took 10 minutes to remember SUCH a simple reply! *sheesh* Time to head back to SE Asia, methinks... Selamat malam... Edit to note that I much prefer fresh lumpia to fried...but that I would NEVER turn down either. YUM!!

    Copious quantities of egg whites

    Great sandwiches in Seattle

    Well, might be a little outta the way, but Toby's Tavern in Coupeville on Whidbey Island does a divine grilled Reuben, and the BEST burgers... Located on Front Street...can't miss it.

    Singapore noodles vs. Ha-Moon noodles

    That's correct, trillium--you generally find Singapore noodle in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong noodle in Singapore. Who knows why???
