  1. Practice puts us on automatic pilot!
  2. I love Pasta Grannies as well as other you-tube pasta instructions. Orecchiette have never been a goal, but there are many worth pursuing. For the fun perhaps more than needing to get dinner in the table.
  3. Some good suggestions here. I'll have a sample of each, please.
  4. I'd swap my share of caviar for your share of champagne. Such a cheap date.
  5. Side by side against a from-scratch pilaf, probably not, but heated slowly with a well seasoned liquid, some butter tossed in because why not, it warrants a spot on a dinner plate.

    Am way past that. More in line with Piaf.

    In my dotage I have discovered/decided that Strozzapreti are my speed. Mindless, idiot-proof, angst-free, impressive if only to me.

    Thanks,Ts. Yes, I've made Orecchiette and, like you, found them a pia, which fired my questioning if further creating a shell was practicable. But as you say, proper dough and patience/practice are the determinants.
  9. Not sure I am talking about the same problem/situation but with iphone, every photo I take is automatically transferred to both laptop and desktop, iPhoto folder on toolbar. Click on it and select photo(s) in order to pull them to screen.
  10. On Calphalon, at least, I have found that it is indeed a chemical deposit rather than reaction, as I have been able to remove it successfully with feather-touch scouring. An anodized exterior Al-Clad, however, is irreparably defaced. It looks as if someone tried to remove the anodized finish. They only partially succeeded! Again, the interior is primo and at a couple of dollars it is just fine.

    Wow! Never heard or even imagined such a thing. Do you think they were hand or machine made? Am having trouble mentally shaping them. Thanks for these.
  12. Absolutely! Modern thought is that children will feed themselves as appropriate, rather than being fed what adults think proper, with possibly less adult obesity. Not pretty, but (have patience!) effective.
  13. I have several flea market All-Clad pieces bought for pennies on the dollar which have been abused beyond any of our comprehension. Dishwashers do extraordinary damage to anodized aluminum, Calphalon as well as All-Clad. I am a master at resurrecting these pieces. Seldom back to factory condition, but quite satisfactory. As a garage sale and flea market maven, I have a skeptical opinion of middle class American consumerism. How do people buy with such abandon and consume with such little respect for product?
