  1. What I do is put my items on amazon's "saved for later" list. Every time I check my cart I get a notification what items have gone up or down in price.
  2. Link to your bags, please?
  3. @Okanagancook what was the flour weight of your recipe? I ask because I have trouble mixing bread on low because the dough hook doesn't properly grab the dough.
  4. I've been under the weather and had not been baking for a while, forgive me. About to go assay how it came out.
  5. Breaking down chocolate bars sounds like a good way for me to hurt myself. Why not just melt the bars?

    Dinner 2019

    No picture but a worthy repeat of this: https://forums.egullet.org/topic/157787-dinner-2019/?do=findComment&comment=2204152 Whatever they are those Canadian herbs are addicting.
  7. No information on Wild Gaspésian Pepper? I spent time with one of our librarians at work this afternoon but we couldn't come up with anything. My guess is it's a peppery herb of some sort but I can't imagine what.
  8. @Darienne, forgive me, I lied. No mai tais were harmed. Last night was Mississippi punch.
  9. Beautiful weather at the moment. Supposed to be nice for the next two days.
  10. No pain, thank you for asking. Antibiotics and one mai tai. Make of the mai tai what you will.
  11. Dinner tonight was prepared with several Canadian herbs and spices with which I had not been familiar. Google helped with some. Could any kind Canadians enlighten me? Dulse: seaweed that tastes like bacon. Contains all trace elements needed by humans. Sounds OK by me. Sweet Fern: resinous bitter plant that is not a fern. Wild Gaspésian Pepper: no clue. Why is wild better than not wild? Labrador Tea: favored by Inuit and First Nations people. Wikipedia questions the toxicity. Formerly added to beer to make beer more intoxicating. Contains ledol used to invoke delirium in shamanistic rituals. Also grayanotoxin, employed by Persians as a chemical weapon against Roman troops. Edit: and as a recreational drug in Nepal and Turkey.

    Picture taken before parsley and olive oil. Much olive oil. In seriousness one of my finest dinners in some while. King salmon grilled with Gaspesian salmon rub.
  13. Despite the Veronese green glow, I shall never again refill my Soave glass* with extra virgin olive oil. *who are we kidding, Soave goblet.

    Each so lovely. Sad, it looks like they don't get along.
  15. Was this crepe maker manufactured by Krampouz? Mine came with a black plastic pie shaped wedge that fits in a groove around the outside edge. I've never tried to make a crepe in my life. Though I am told there is a first time for everything.
  16. Look in the India cooking forum: https://forums.egullet.org/forum/324-india-cooking-amp-baking/ I hope you find your cooking adventure enjoyable and that you will reach out beyond your comfort foods. The dinner thread has all sorts of cookery, including Indian: https://forums.egullet.org/topic/157787-dinner-2019/ I am fortunate to live in a town in the US with a wide range of cultures and cuisines. Our current mayor (the head of government) is Indian. A former mayor was Chinese. One of my projects is to figure out how to make dosa.
  17. What are you wanting to cook? Regional Indian foods or international? There is a lot of information here, and probably people who can help no matter what your cooking interest.
  18. Spicetrekkers order came as promised. Not that I read French. In my haste to get the package open I shredded the invoice. Too tired tonight to investigate, but it appears there is a lagniappe.
  19. Welcome. Ask here before buying books. How did you find eGullet?
  20. If I had a grain mill (two of which I could have traded for a root canal) I'd start off with commercial yeast.
  21. Never having been in the cookie biz but having been in business, I feel it is unethical to talk to a competitor without identifying oneself as a possible competitor. Besides, you may then find the competitor even more interested to talk to you. Simply ordering product from your competitors is something else again.

    Around here polenta comes in all sorts of different grinds. For my polenta I use white corn meal, as it is said they prefer in Venice. But I am not a cornbread person so carry on.
  23. Amazon says Kindle prices are set by the publishers.
