  1. I've been using my Salton Electronic Kitchen Scale (my model no longer available) since 2006. It cost $60 tjen and was well worth it. I use it every day (no exaggeration) and I think I've only had to change the battery once, maybe twice. Bought it from KAF. It's similar to this one. Kitchen scales have become a whole lot cheaper since then.

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Today's recipe is KAF's Vermont whole wheat honey oatmeal . Just out of the oven it smells wonderful. Destined for sandwiches. ETA: Forgot to post my picture.

    When do you send food back?

    Very, very rarely. Last time was a couple years ago when my prime ribs was tough and overdone.

    Are you wanting a hand-held model or wall-mount, or does it matter?

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    King Arthur's AP is said to be a higher protein than most, do you know what percent it is? I keep a supply of their bread flour on hand (used to be named Sir Lancelot but now is just called bread flour).

    Grocery Shopping

    Some grocery chains here play the most god-awful music, and it's very loud as well. I don't know who this is for, certainly not me.

    The Soup Topic (2013–)

    I brought home some take-out from a neighborhood restaurant a few days ago. It was prime rib vegetable soup. It was SO good I decided to make a pot of my own (using chuck roast). I bought tons of vegetables, from kale, leek, corn, turnip, green beans, carrots, celery and potatoes. My gosh it is so good. Best soup I think I've ever made. Just hit the spot on a cool day with some homemade bread.

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    I ran into the same problem a few days ago when I was making a (CI) recipe for Almost No Knead Bread. I was doubling the recipe and ended up with a too-wet dough. After resting it overnight it was way too slack. I added about an additional cup of flour but it was still overly soft even after an additional three hours rise. I put it into my Breadpot and into to a cold oven,. then set it for 450ºF. Baked for 50 minutes, removed the lid and baked for another 10 minutes. Miraculously, it turned out fine.

    New house, new kitchen

    From the camera angle that fridge looks massive. I wish mine was twice a big as what I have, and mine's not small.
  11. Well there was that turkey. 😀 What a pretty hotel.

    New house, new kitchen

    Does the micro exhaust to the outside? I ask because it's something that is lacking in my kitchen.

    Please let us know how this turned out.

    Food Safety Question

    I think a big factor is how cold your fridge is. i keep mine at maximum cold. Recently I put a frozen chicken in the garage fridge and three days later it was still rock solid. (I like my beer cold.)

    Actually, yes, I have. My favorite source for dried fruits and veg. happens to be sold out of strawberries at the moment.. But I will definitely order some when they're back in stock. North Bay.
