  1. Today I made these salty chocolate oatmeal cookies. Instead of the flour in the recipe I used almond flour so that my daughter who chooses to avoid gluten might enjoy them. I think they work just fine with the almond flour although I suppose one ought to always make the recipe as given first. But rules were made to be broken and I broke this one. There’s nothing wrong with these cookies. They just don’t blow my mind in any way. I will let you know how many rejects are returned. To me they taste like oatmeal held together by chocolate, really good chocolate because that’s what I have (thanks to @Kerry Beal).

    Garlic naan with crumbled blue cheese, grated cheddar cheese and lots and lots of pepper.
  3. Yep that’s the one I aspire to. So far it’s out of my reach.
  4. You can both keep your knickers on. It’s going to be some time. I expect to do the Danish æbleskivers first.😂

    Thank you. I hope to try these in a takoyaki pan. Might be a few days before I actually get around to it.

    Can you share the recipe? Please?

    Yeah. I would’ve done that and made sure it went into the compost bin.
  8. Strictly to contain the eggs. I need the dual tray that doesn’t exist!
  9. I think the way the restaurant responded is the bigger story. Here. “Lau told CNN that it was "a shame" to have been deleted from the 2020 guide. "But we take it as a fair judgment and a fresh start following the departure of our master Mitsuhiro Araki," he said. "We believed it placed Michelin in a difficult position to make a decision on how to score The Araki, as the master was here during half of the inspection period for 2020's guide." The restaurant has not asked Michelin for an explanation, he said. "It's their guide, and we're in total respect of how they want to do it. I'm taking it on the chin and getting on with proving myself. "Lots of chefs are devastated when they lose stars, but you'll get nowhere with that attitude. You have to dust yourself off and try again."

    Enjoy every minute. I can’t think of anyone who is more deserving of a break than you.
  11. I have been using this appliance almost exclusively but most of it is pretty repetitive so I have not been posting about it. Tonight I used it to reheat some roasted vegetables and cook a couple of eggs.

    I like Cosco’s chicken so much so that I won’t buy rotisserie chicken anywhere else but 6lbs. I don’t think so.
  13. I am trying to find a compromise where I can leaf through the book but not let the kittens have their way with it. Right now I have it open on the table they haven’t yet discovered. And I have started reading it. And what do you know? The chef and I have something in common. We were both born in Derby!
  14. Yes we went for the original crust. I think the big draw of this pizzeria is that it offers toppings that are quite unusual in this neck of the woods such as pesto and white sauce and drizzles of olive oil! Pizzas are small compared to other pizzerias. You would need more than one large pizza to feed more than two people adequately in my opinion. From my observation while sitting waiting for Kerry a large pizza was being treated as a personal size pizza by most of the young people in there. It’s a novelty and I’ll definitely try it again but I don’t think it is going to be my “go to” meal by a longshot.
