    Best Panini Recipes

    Grilled eggplant, squash, roasted red and orange peppers, sliced avocado and smoked cheese-and the bread is spread with Xan's romesco sauce. Soc. And the slices are grilled too. Forgot to say that!

    Smoked Garlic

    I'm smoking tomorrow and I thought I'd throw a few garlic heads in and smoke them too. Has anybody tried this? Any advice? Soc.

    Hamantashen

    Hello, all. Been gone too long. Anyway, there are hamantashcen in the oven right now!
  4. They would if they'd never been subjected to fast food and if they were used to good figs, salami and real crusty bread. We were not allowed fast food when we were growing up and I still don't like it, but I will drive through to get some decent ice tea when I haven't grabbed any from home. And not every place has good ice tea, btw. Nestee doen't count... but if a frog had wings, it wouldn't bump its ass hoppin'. :laugh: Point taken! Now I gotta go eat some figs and salami and bread...

  6. Yeah the Molino Creek dry farmed tomatoes are famous in this area. Xan. says their the best. We get them at the farmer's market and also the farm's sugar snap peas. And purple bell peppers!

    Dinner! 2003

    Those are great ideas, I'll pass them on to Xan. She usually roasts different colored peppers all the time, so the tart would be colorful too. Since she can now pretty much be on her feet for long periods, I think she'll be drying plum tomatoes again in the dehydrater. We get them from the farmer's market-- big boxes of them at a good price.

    Dinner! 2003

    This sounds so familiar, I'm sure Xanthippe makes it--or something that's really close to it. Is it from an Italian cookbook on vegetables?? It sounds like Jack Bishop's recipe from Italian Vegetarian Cooking, I make this same recipe A LOT! Yup that's the one allright! We naever get tired of it, and it even makes tomatoes that are out of season taste pretty darn good. Gotta remind Xan. to make it again...
  10. There's a legendary story about my dearest Xanthippe (back when I didn't know her) frying chicken naked. Wish I had been there! And she still has a scar...

  12. Great, thanks so much. And Xanthippe thanks you too, and my mother, my father... Will llet you know how ours turns out. We always have Plugra in the freezer.
  13. That does it, I have to ask Xan. to try this-using maybe peaches or nectarines and ollallie berries instead of strawberry and rhubarb. I'm sorry to say I don't like rhubarb. Any particular tart crust recipe you can recommend? :
  14. We can send you some fresh ones if you want. There are a couple volunteer bay laurels in our yard--Xan. goes out and just snips what she needs. Let me know.
