What are you baking these days? August 2015

Hope that she is better soon! A friend had a baby about a month ago and I finally made it out to see her: made strawberry streusel muffins and brown-butter raspberry squares for her and her partner..

Yes, I loved that series! And I also remember frequent mentions of pumpkin being cooked for dinner.

Coconut oil expiry date

Evidently I don't use my coconut oil enough.. I took out my jar from the cupboard, and noticed that it had expired at the beginning of June (oops). It still smells OK (not "off"), but I don't really know what spoiled coconut oil smells like. Any thoughts on whether or not it is still OK to use?? Was going to make brownies with it.

Go-to cookbooks for "must impress" dinner parties

Gougeres are one of those things that I have always wanted to try (I've heard they're pretty easy), but never had the courage to.. yet.

Go-to cookbooks for "must impress" dinner parties

Oops, didn't mean to imply that! My friends who are academics are all far too harried (they are also parents of small children) to host elaborate dinner parties!
I was just talking to the spouse of a colleague who had told me some horror stories about his department..

They are lower-fat, so pretty much have to be eaten right away or frozen.. but I like them.

food shopping at Winners

I have bought a lot of cookbooks at both Winners and Homesense over the years..

I used bings, which I find less watery than sour cherries? In any case, in this recipe, you cut the cherries, pat them dry in paper towels, and toss with 1 Tb flour. Worked out quite well..

That is disgraceful!! We used to drive from Winnipeg to Boulder Colorado every summer to visit my mother's family, and I recall a few counties somewhere in the Dakotas where you couldn't get any liquor on Sundays, even with dinner. I think that after the long drive with 2 small children on her own.. she really needed it.

Wow, those sound great. I am going to the States (Atlanta) for a conference in August: will have to hit up a grocery store in addition to Trader Joe's!

Cherry buttermilk scones. I always go overboard on the produce this time of year, and some were looking a bit wrinkly.. also pitted and froze some.

Yep. pretty gross, but cooled down a bit in the evening. The meringues actually turned out pretty well!

2015 Butter Tart Debate

Dang it, why can't they sell that at their College St. location??

Best places to buy groceries in Toronto?

Yes.. I haven't been to that market for a few years, but it's a good one. I also like that produce shop at bloor and manning. I live on College and go to a produce market at College and Montrose.. with another good one across the street.
