Sunday Suppers at Lucques: Fall Menus

My oven is extremely hot regardless of what the setting is. I alwasy turn it down at least 25 degrees for any recipe. also our flour is very very dry, so when baking I tend to use a bit less. Just minor adjustments I've learned by trial and error but make a big difference in many outcomes

Dinners that freeze well

If you have a TJ's near by, they have great spanikopita in their freezer section - a large one or small triangles.

Sunday Suppers at Lucques: Spring Menus

Spring! I've also been doing quite a bit of cooking from this cookbook recently I have to say, it's become my all time favorite. This year I've discovered Meyer lemons, and the salsa and meyer lemon cream are fantastic. I've kept Meyer's in the fridge for the past several weeks just for these 2 recipes. Also try a pizza with mozzarella, goat cheese, very thinly sliced meyers, thyme and a drizzle of olive oil. Really special. (now, where did I see that...was it the LA time food section, perhaps?)

ISO great recipe for Brioche Bread

Our family loves toasted brioche bread for breakfast. We have found a good one from TJ's and when we can find it, Eli Zabar's is great. But I'd like to find a great recipe - how hard can it be?

Thanks.

Has anyone tried this with chicken breasts instead of the thighs? My family does not like dark meat.
