Irish Soda Bread recipe that isn't too dry?

I'm eating soda bread and stollen all this week. Both are PERFECT.
One is a bit aged (from December), and one not (from Tuesday, 03/17).

How do you repurpose lumpy pancakes?

I wonder if a blender could fix the problem.

How do you repurpose lumpy pancakes?

Soak them all with flavored rum and the lumps will be gone and forgotten.

Types of Tomato sauce?

Follow the same directions for making Tomatillo Sauce Salsa Verde,
just use tomatoes instead of tomatillos. (Roma tomatoes are nice and juicy).

Pears for salad?

Alkapal, I've tried these pears too, Chinese White Pears, but they fell short of my expectations. Outside they have near perfect exteriors, but inside, I found them to be somewhat bland.

Pears for salad?

The image here is a pic of a Fuji apple (far left), followed by 3 types of Asian pears. My favorite is the 2nd from the left. (Click on the image to expand).

Sauce for Shrimp Ravioli?

As bizarre as this might sound, I would try it with lobster sauce.

That good and that cheap?! Lamb shoulder chops.

I haven't purchased a whole shoulder in quite a while, but I used to buy ones
weighing about ten pounds each and costing only $1.99/lb. A recent purchase of shoulder lamb chops cost me $6.99/lb. I should probably resume buying whole shoulders again and saving a few bucks.

I lived on 142nd and Willis.
No diet sodas, and no Asian pears anywhere nearby !!

VINTAGE Seedless Watermelon Seltzer

Has anyone tried the Vintage Seedless Watermelon flavored seltzer yet? I find that it tastes like watermelon *rind* more than anything else. I'd be curious to hear what other people think. Thanks.

Pears for salad?

Bxgirl, I get my Asian pears at Community Green Market on Boston Road in the BX. Depending on the season, you can find up to three different varieties of Asian pears there. They also carry fresh soursop and fresh dragon fruit too.

Pears for salad?

Asian pears please.

Using Bosc would be like eating dessert. They can be too sweet for salads.

Seeking advice on packaged sliced ham

If you can find it, the Dietz and Watson hams taste way better than any Boar's Head ham, IMO. You get a ham with a clean, not-so-salty, no-fillers-detectable taste. http://dietzandwatson.com/product-cat...

Need healthful "brown bag" lunch ideas, please.

The Italian flag and the Mexican flag have a few things in common, roma_cranberry. I think you presently embrace Italian food the most, but I say try exploring Mexican food a bit. Try soft corn tortillas wrapped around your favorite protein, or try making chili and reheating it on the job if you can. Have some baby peeled carrots, some fruit, some nuts, and you'll be good to go bro'. My BIL is a contractor also, and he admitted to eating PB&J sandwiches every single day because "it was easy to eat" while he drove. Work is necessary, no doubt, but treat yourself to some GOOD fuel every single day. Your body will thank you for that.

Peanut butter plus....

The most revelatory for me was PB added to soup.

Do you use your stove for storage ?

Yes, full kitchen downstairs in the basement with thirteen additional cabinets for storage. The electric stove down there is completely empty and rarely if ever used.

Is dessert optional?

Wow, some people would be very disappointed if the dessert course was overlooked.

Do you use your stove for storage ?

I don't have a pantry, so a lot of the cabinets have canned and boxed food items in them, glassware, china, etc. We've always kept baking pans and skillets in the oven for as long as I can remember, and I guess it's just a tough habit to break.
