  1. Wish I had thought of that.
  2. Thanks. They are OK but they don’t call out to me as much as some cookies do. Right now I wish I had a thick and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie.
  3. There is definitely a similarity. This was the recipe I used more or less. I just chose a selection of nuts from my freezer and I had no cream so used couple of tablespoons of milk. I think it could’ve just been left out altogether. Next time I think I would toast the nuts briefly.
  4. Honey nut bars.
  5. Thanks for sharing this story. I have frequently run into greenhorn check-out clerks here who, when presented with something like kohlrabi, plead with innocent eyes for a clue. But when I am presented with the range of vegetables in an Asian store, the tables are turned. Rarely are they displayed with English labels. Have you cooked these roots yet? Are they something that you will seek out in the future? Can you relate the taste to anything I might recognize?

    Sushi Rice

    But even my Zojirushi rice cooker has a water level setting for sushi rice. I think the fight for a differentiation between raw short grain rice and cooked rice seasoned for sushi was lost a long time ago. Edited to fix along

    Bonacini's Italy

    I ate at one of his restaurants.

    Hmmm. I have never seen raw prawns curl selves into such perfect little commas. Commas that are not too loose and not too tight. Goldilocks’ commas. Commas that indicate to me perfectly cooked prawns.
  9. I have not been there for a while as the last couple of books that I did follow struck me as just too incongruous to be paired. I cannot remember which they were. But perhaps I should go back and afford the premise a second chance.
  10. And these really danced! I think they were all wearing tutus.
  11. This most definitely calls for a video so one can more easily grasp the consistency one is aiming for at each step. After reading the recipe I’m impressed with your fearlessness. For now, though, I think I will stick with much easier coconut macaroons.

    I asked because your dish looked interesting and there are times when there is not very darn much in this house to make a sauce with. With so few ingredients I could manage it quite well. It belongs in my “what to eat when there’s nothing to eat” list. Thank you.

    I am guessing from looking at your dish that you made a simple sauce perhaps from the oil/butter/fat that you cooked the prawns in?
  14. Don’t take all the sport out of it.
