Hot Cross Buns

I miss Schubert's and Boudin's buns. (moved away from SF.) :-(

Ridiculously simple apple salad

Reminds me of the best chicken salad I'd ever had at a party. Apples, (red & green, with skins on) halved grapes, toasted almonds, diced cooked chicken, (not that crud out of a can!) light touch with the curry, real mayo, fresh lemon, fresh pepper, minced green onion. I've also added various additional ingredients such as shredded carrot, minced celery, minced red onion, raisins, etc. (not necessarily all at the same time tho.) Fabulous. Thanks for reminding me!

Carrot Chips

Umm....why would you "discard" perfectly good food??
"(Discard or save any remaining carrot slices for another use."

I really hate the promotion of wastefulness. Please be more aware.

Hot Cross Buns - where do you buy your favorites?

Liked to buy them at Boudin's in the Richmond and also Schuberts. Here in Sacto area try Danek's. All very different but good....

Food from the 1940's?

I found this discussion and couldn't resist asking how it went, and what menu did you end up with? Were folks in costume also? Just love old recipes and the 40s are a top favorite.
