  1. It's been my experience that dough with cheese kneaded into it doesn't rise as high as that without. But the pic looks like it needed a tighter roll.
  2. The best treatment of dates I know: Stuff an almond in where that pit was. Wrap the date in 1/3 strip of bacon (the thin, supermarket kind). Sprinkle with a little brown sugar or drizzle a little maple syurp. Bake until bacon is done. I can hurt myself on these. I like them in oatmeal, and in bran muffins, too.
  3. Well, it appears I am about to join the ranks of the statistics; had my COVID test yesterday, after I woke up with a fever of 102. Down around 100 today (thank you, Tylenol and Ibuprofen,) and I'm awaiting results later this week. Far from having lost a sense of taste and smell, though, I'm hungry as a horse. So far, I'm contemplating making about half a dozen things I've seen on here in the last 24 hours, though I think picadillo is standing at the head of the list, but curried chicken is not far behind. I woke up this morning craving bacon and eggs. It has been a year since I had bacon and eggs. I'm on an antibiotic in case it's a sinus infection, which the dull headache centered in my forehead indicates it might be.

    Chokecherry Ideas

    I don't know chokecherries from personal experience (don't guess we've got 'em down here), but based on the description above, I'd be inclined toward Vivian Howard's Blue Q barbecue sauce (she uses blueberries).
  5. My favorite savory pastry has to be the pig in a blanket -- cocktail sausage wrapped in some kind of dough and baked. Although I've made the hand pies with picadillo, too, and they're pretty stunning (I do love me some picadillo, with lots and lots of olives and raisins). And there is nothing, NOTHING better than a fresh sausage and biscuit secured from the gas station about 6:30 a.m. as one sets out on a road trip somewhere. Sigh. One of the casualties of celiac disease.
  6. Image search was the first thing I did when I saw the pic. No joy.

    Dinner 2020

    I've had good luck with "pre-cooked" chicken skin by putting it on a parchment lined baking sheet, putting parchment on top, and topping with another baking sheet. 400 for 10 minutes.
  8. Thanks I am sure to this topic, I dreamed about making ice cream last night. Peach, specifically.

    Arborio. Didn't have any Bomba. I dunno. I think it was the flavor the sausages imparted. I used a tag end of chorizo and one of sopressata.

    Paella. I have done better.
  11. Welcome, and enjoy! Be warned -- this forum will cost you money. I have several things that would have never occurred to me to purchase, absent this group. We're the original enablers.
  12. The vines finally decided to yield enough cucumbers at a time to do something with. Therefore, a half gallon of what will be, by the middle of next week, half sours. As I will be on the road, I will leave instructions for Child A to transfer them to the fridge. Four leftover pickles are chopped and draining for a salad for tonight. There is no reason one cannot have cucumber salad with paella, is there?
  13. My beans didn't do well, either. Luxuriant vines. Lots of flowers. Maybe a dozen beans, all told.
