  1. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    More like dinner aftermath, but champagne, pepper salami, cheese and crackers.
  2. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Simple, but delicious roast chicken
  3. Favorite Homemade Sauces for Pasta

    I usually start with 2 or 3 cloves of garlic, mined and a medium onion. Depending on what's around I add pancetta, or ground pork, ground beef and cook a bit before adding a large can of crushed tomatoes, and then I simmer. I add dried herbs as the mood strikes me, usually rosemary and oregano.
  4. They were large enough for two people to. partake but not huge, I'd say.
  5. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Charcuterie board at Salt and Board, Albuquerque NM
  6. Salt and Board, near the university. We dined there this evening. They have a small but well chosen wine list, nothing over $32. The charcuterie board was very good, with bacon jam, apricot jam, and a selection of charcuterie, enough for two, $14,
  7. I'm going to ask a stupid question: what makes IP better than my stovetop pressure cooker? Is there any reason to switch?
  8. Bar cookies

    I love baking bar cookies, and had several basic recipes for shortbread and chocolate chip bar cookies for my 15x10 jelly roll pan. I lost the recipes in a move (they weren't in weights either I haven't converted yet because all my cookbooks use volume). I've been looking ever since for such recipes (for that size pan, in volume), and I have googled with little success. Can anyone tell me where I might find what I'm looking for?
  9. What is.....Yellow C Sugar?

    Could it be this? http://www.lantic.ca/en/products/yellow-sugar/
  10. If you can find ginger beer at your liquor store, I recommend the Moscow Mule: 1 shot vodka over ice in a rocks glass Add the juice of half a lime, and a slice of lime Fill with ginger beer
  11. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    We had a very basic pizza tonite
  12. I'll be heading to L.A./Long Beach in a couple of weeks--are there any "must-eats" that I shouldn't miss?
  13. I'll just leave this here for anyone going to ABQ: the Jambo Cafe; there's one in Santa Fe also. Afro-Carribean food, very tasty.
  14. I love parsnips, and those look delicious. Are they roasted, or how did you cook them?
  15. We tip 20% unless something is particularly well-done, then it might be a little more. I tend not to reduce tips for bad service because I know the server isn't getting minimum wage and around here, is an under-trained college student.
