2014 Ontario Sweet Corn

Yes.... I've seen the truck(s) from Sweet Ridge Farm parked around Scarborough. In fact, I bought some today @ Kingston Road / Markham, and will be having it shortly.

Guildwood recommendations

There is also Fratelli's that gets good feedback a bit east of Guildwood (Old Kingston Road / Highland Creek Overpass); http://www.fratellis.ca/index.html and a second location on St. Clair / Victoria Park.

The Toronto Bread Company on Progress Rd.

You might also check out B & A Bakery @ 1820 Ellesmere Rd, Scarborough ON, M1H 2V5, just between McCowan and Bellamy.

Martha Stewart On How To Cook On an Aga

Growing up in England, we always had a Rayburn in the kitchen. Not only was it used for cooking throughout the day, but also as a source of hot water for the radiators in the house.

I do seem to remember though that it only fed the back of the house; there was a separate boiler for the front of the house,

My sister has an AGA and that is her main cooker.

Hard boiled eggs.... peeling issues

I tried a technique I had seen on the Web, and it worked like a charm!

Heat your oven to 325F, then either place the eggs directly on the oven racks, or in a muffin pan. Bake for 30 minutes and then dump the eggs into a bowl of iced water.

When eggs are cool, it's all done.

Seemed to work perfectly; no sign of either a dark ring around the yolks, or any discoloration of the yolks..

Do you love Banana Bread? What's your favorite banana bread?

My favourite (and I'm not much of a baker at all) is this

INGREDIENTS
* 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
* 1/3 cup melted butter
* 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* Pinch of salt
* 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

METHOD
No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
Yield: Makes one loaf.

Kostas Greek Bakery at Warden & Ellesmere...

Sorry it was for people visiting the butcher; but the bakery was open then was what I meant.

Kostas Greek Bakery at Warden & Ellesmere...

I know it was open before the Greek Orthodox Easter (May 5th) as my wife is an avid knitter, and one of her favorite knitting stores is right next door to it; the parking lot was a total zoo!
