    Cold Brew

    I tried Starbucks (bottled) cold brew coffee yesterday for the first time and was surprised at just how good it was. Now I'm going to start making my own with the brew packs that Starbucks offers. It's a nice change from my usual iced tea

    Cold Brew

    i I poured the brew over ice and added some whole milk...delicious.
  3. I just recently started steaming instead of boiling and my results are as yours....no more issues with the membranes sticking. k
  4. I couldn't find the 'recipe thread'. Here's the recipe I use, with modifications: Broccoli Salad 1 head broccoli 6 to 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled 1/2 cup chopped red onion 1/2 cup raisins, optional 8 ounces sharp Cheddar, cut into very small chunks 1 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons white vinegar 1/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes Salt and freshly ground black pepper Trim off the large leaves from the broccoli stem. Remove the tough stalk at the end and wash broccoli head thoroughly. Cut the head into flowerets and the stem into bite-size pieces. Place in a large bowl. Add the crumbled bacon, onion, raisins if using, and cheese. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, stirring well. Add to broccoli mixture and toss gently. I omit the bacon and the cheese.
  5. I like to keep tiny Oregon shrimp (frozen) on hand to make Shrimp Louie when it's really hot.
  6. Have you dismissed the stuffed cabbage idea?

    cheese slicers

    Slicing the cheese for my occasional grilled cheese sandwich has been a bit of a struggle lately. My wire slicer (shown) and my small knife don’t work very well. i found this slicer on Amazon and I'm pretty impressed with it. It's. A bit bigger than I expected and it reminds me of a guillotine. 😁 "
  8. It was featured on the KAF site today for $66 more also w/free shipping. But KAF is always more.
  9. I'm being tempted by the Cuisinart ICE-100 compressor ice cream maker...so far I've resisted.
  10. Wow, you're made of sturdier stuff than I. I like it cold for sleep and 60 would be about perfect. Daytime 68 is nice. Summer, when it's so hot I can tolerate up to 76 but any higher than that I get crotchety.

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Lunch today with friends at our favorite nearby café. Mine was a patty melt with cold slaw on the side….vey good although the cole slaw had a small amount of pineapple in it and the dressing wasn't my particular favorite. My friends had eggs and bacon and one had taco salad. The food there is very good and it's a very friendly place to go.
  12. i'll be very interested in this as well....I face similar challenges and have avoided dealing with that big cabbage, depriving myself of one of my favorite meals. I've tried some recipes such as 'unstuffed' cabbage where the chopped leaves are mixed in with the filling and made into a casserole but they just don't taste the same. my favorite recipe is from a very old (late 60's) Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. Quite simple and very tasty. For some reason I never copied the recipe into my software so it's fortunate that I've save the book for all these years.
  13. I also like to brown some German sausage or kielbas with some German fried potatoes to make an easy oven free dinner.
  14. Because I 'm sometimes lazy especially when it's hot I have purchased Hodgson's Mills honey whole whet bread mix. It makes a very good loaf that I can bake in my CSO. Got it from Walmart.
  15. Stir fries are quick and easy. I also like cold Asian noodle salads.
  16. I hope they will make good on your order.
  17. I can't see what's in the blue and white bags in the first photo. Looks like pet food but I know that can't be.

    cheese slicers

    Results from the new slicer were great! don’t know what the problem was with the person who posted the shots on Amazon of the crumbled cheese. Maybe it was the cheese she used, mine is just med. cheddar which sliced easily, thick or thin.
  19. I have still not been able to find the porchetta I bought last winter. Had to change my meal plan until it shows up (which may never happen).

  21. The story about food poisoning in the 'Bali' thread reminded me of something that happened a few summers ago.... I will never again prepare a dish using fresh spinach without thoroughly washing it first. Three or four hours later I was in the bathroom trying to decide which was worse; the vomiting or the Hershey squirts! I was ill for quite a long time afterward.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Indeed, I have been known to use the hottest days for bread-making...what else is there to do? God bless central air.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    @ElsieD, I halved the recipe and did use all of the dressing...it was not too much, probably because the pasta absorbed much of it. The salad was good but I'll use less of the PB next time.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Last night's dinner was Ina Garten's Crunchy Noodle Salad. A nice choice for a hot evening. It was good except that I eye-balled the measurement of peanut butter and it was a little bit, well, heavy on the PB. Other than that it was good even though the pasta stuck together.
