  1. Well the donuts were so dense that I needed a magnifying glass to see the holes. And they were so dry it was like having a mouth full of desert. As for the espresso it added a bitter note that was unpleasant. I definitely need a better recipe.
  2. The group loves chocolate and coffee so I don't see that as a problem. I'm going to make it today just so that if it is awful I can get store bought tomorrow morning.
  3. Thank you so much for the information and other sources.
  4. It's an allrecipes.com recipe and your right it is espresso powder.
  5. I am making my first chocolate donut for a sunday meeting. The recipe calls for espresso. I would love to hear about your experience with these types of recipes. Any hints or tips that will make it easier. Thanks for your help.
  6. That is a great story. I'm glad you were willing to step in. So many people aren't.
  7. I hope this isn't an idiot question. But I have no idea what the differences are. Please teach me.

    Avocado Recipes

    I was reading my "Joy of Cooking," and it mentioned how well chicken and avocados go together. But I never leave an avocado naked, I have to have it sprinkled with apple cider vinegar and salt. So now I'm thinking Corden Bleu with an avocado filling rather than cheese. Hum...
  9. The spice companion looks like a good add for reference purposes.
  10. I have the Mark Bittman book but I don't care for the recipes. They all end up in my need to be modified file.
  11. i'm so glad most of you have more cookbooks than I do. I stopped buying them when I couldn't find favorite recipes because I couldn't remember which book they were in. Now every morning I spend about an hour typing recipe names and other assorted information into an index. I'm determined to be able to find recipes easily when I want to make them. When I first started this I thought it would all fit on one spreadsheet. How wrong I was. Desserts have an entire folder just for the spreadsheets in that area. Cookies, Cakes, Tortes, Tarts, Pies, Fruit, Pastries...and it just keeps on growing.

    Recipe "Disaster!"

    This is a great thread. I've been there many times with a recipe. I've even gotten rid of cookbooks that seemed to have a different food profile that I like. One was a cookbook of recipes off of cans, bottles, boxes, ect. We were using it as a base for a group to make the same recipes and then comment on them. After the third one being something I didn't like at all, I dropped out of the group and got rid of the cookbook.
  13. I recently found out I could remove 75% of the salt from canned veggies just by draining the water and rinsing the veggies. Excellent.
