What are you baking these days? August 2015 [OLD]

All of this talk of plums is giving me a hankering for them..

What do you think of this menu?

I second that thought! I have often wondered about *whole* roasted cauliflower. I like roasted florets, but wondered if it would really work on the inside. I've never heard of chicken besteeya.. but man it sounds good!

I am far too lazy to peel or seed tomatoes, so greatly admire those of you that do!
I made sweet and sour cherry jam last week, with bing and sour cherries I had in the freezer. Tastes very yummy..

I like wacky cake.. have made it for vegan friends. Quick and easy.
My grandmother once hid an entire tin of meringues (made for me, her lucky grandaughter) in the dryer, on the grounds that my grandfather never did laundry. Of course he found it and ate the whole tin while she was gone.. he claimed that if she put it in the dryer, she can't have cared about them!!!

Got a box from King Arthur yesterday (used up a birthday gift certificate) and so decided to use up the year-old cappuccino chips in my fridge by making the double-dark mocha drops. Forgot how easy they are, and how much I love them..

restaurants near Hyatt Regency on Peachtree?

THanks to you both. I didn't have access to CH while I was gone, and just got back. We ended up having almost no time for breakfast or lunch, so I just went to the Au Bon Pain in the Peachtree Centre a lot! I ate at the hotel bar one night (arrived late), at ALma cucina one night (really liked it), and at Max Lager's, which was fine.
I really liked Atlanta, and hope to come back at some point to explore...

I have always been afraid to use the self-cleaning function for that reason!

YUm!! I really enjoyed the food there.
I also like the Bake or Break blog.. didn't realise that she had a cookbook coming out!

peach butter is in the canner.. I pretty much licked the whole pot clean after I made it, which I don't usually do! Very good!

Honey Crisp Apples

Yes, they can be really overpriced in grocery stores..

restaurants near Hyatt Regency on Peachtree?

I will at a conference at the Hyatt Regency on Peachtree for a conference from Sunday to Wednesday.. any recommendations for restaurants around there? We seem to be on our own!

thanks Caitlin! Oddly, I dislike lavender in both food and soap (find it too strong!)..

Honey Crisp Apples

Apples just reappeared at the farmers market, but I would expect that it won't be until well into next month for the Honeycrisps, like Dachopstix said...

What cookbooks have you bought lately, or are you lusting after? August 2015 [OLD]

Yes.. that's a Breadcrumbs-level haul!

Update: we may have gone overboard with the cinnamon.. the yield was about half of what I thought that it would be be, and I used 1/8 ts of cinnamon, and boiled 2 cinnamon sticks with the jam. May have to put a warning on the label!!

Just reading about the applesauce is making me hungry! Lemon verbena tastes like soap to me (largely because it is my favourite scent for soap and lotion), but I bet that recipe would be fine without the verbena.

site forgetting "read" posts

Ditto for me. But I find it inconsistent.. on some threads no problem, on others I have to scan carefully. And these are new threads. Doing my head in!

Sounds like one of those days. I can't roast chicken because i always set off the smoke alarm.. for the whole building. I tried cleaning my stove "naturally" which didn't work. I finally bought some chemical oven cleaner which I need to use!
I once fell asleep while making dulce de leche, and 2 cans of condensed milk exploded all over my kitchen. That definitely set off the alarm..

Frangipane tart with peaches sounds perfect..

A friend of mine wanted to learn how to make jam, so she came over and we made cinnamon peach (very nice to have someone help with peeling and chopping the peaches!). Turned out quite nicely..

Looks so professional! A cake that anyone would be delighted to get for their birthday..
