  1. This caught my interest until I popped onto Amazon.ca and discovered that the hardcover is $32.91 and the Kindle book was $30.39. Who thought that was justifiable?
  2. From the instruction manual: Preheat – Preheat indicator will disappear once the oven has reached set temperature. Food should be placed in oven before selecting cooking function and starting oven as preheat time is minimal and incorporated into overall cooking time. Bolding is mine.

    Breakfast 2019

    I knew I wanted something uber savoury for breakfast. I had some wood-oven smoked salami chips, some Seriously Sharp cheddar and eggs. But I also wanted an onigirazu. The more I thought this through the more I wondered if it was crazy talk. Maybe those mushrooms I’ve been eating are not what they purport to be! So here you have fusion cuisine. An Italian frittata? A French omelette? A Spanish tortilla (must this includes potatoes?)? sandwiched between rice patties and wrapped in nori. Mission accomplished.
  5. I am willing to bet, even though I love my fellow countrypersons, that only two in 10 would know what a currant is when it doesn’t relate to the Great Lakes or the St. Lawrence Seaway. Spelling aside.
  6. I could get behind these things and probably raise you six.😂
  7. They look delicious. Are they anything like Portuguese custard tarts (Pastéis de Nata)?

    Did I ever mention how much I despise overcrowded plates? Nobody to blame but me. Fried kielbasa, egg, hot chutney and toast.
  9. Quite mesmerizing. Thanks for sharing.
  10. Having said all that I turned down the opportunity to play with the Control Freak when it was up in Manitoulin Island. 😂 Perhaps I was scared I would get to really like it and the price point for it is not something my budget is able to support.
  11. For $69 even I would’ve taken a fling on it. But by the time it gets all translated into Canadian dollars and Canadian postage etc. I don’t even want to know what the final price would be! I don’t need the induction I have a full induction range but the precision cooking might intrigue me at that price point.

    Lunch 2019

    I really wanted a slice of pizza with mushrooms and pepperoni. Usually I could find one in my freezer but not today. Mushroom, pepperoni and cheese frittata.

    Dinner 2019

    Intriguing. I’m guessing that it is ground lamb and vegetables in there. But I’ve been wrong once or twice before.😂

  18. Strange. It did work for me. Thoroughly enjoyed this with my morning coffee. Congratulations once again, Rob.

    Lunch 2019

    A strange lunch even for me! One of the difficulties of placing a grocery order and trusting someone else to choose your produce is that their tastes may not be your tastes and their estimate of ripeness may vary greatly from your estimate of ripeness. Even so I should have noticed how hard this pear was before I cut into it. I have felt curling stones with more give than this pear had. But too late. I had already cut into it and so I reached deep into my imagination and sautéed it in butter. Didn’t get any riper but it did get a bit softer. And so lunch was sautéed pear, blue cheese and Breton crackers.
  20. I am back. Six weeks in Manitoulin and then my son-in-law was on holiday then other things took over my life. I did start last week but unfortunately I learned the hard way that my Cuisinart Steam Oven does not keep an accurate temperature when it is in the convection/bake mode. As a consequence this same recipe for Chocolate Almond Situation ( yes that really is what it is called) did not bake properly. Since it has almost 3/4 of a pound of chocolate I did not waste the failed product but sent it over for my daughter and granddaughter to enjoy. They had no issue spooning it into bowls! I tried hard for decent photographs but this is as good as it’s getting. I think of them as brownies on steroids. The recipe is from the book Zahav but I found it online here.
