Civility

Holding the door at a local store for someone, without even an acknowledgement or thank you.
Not receiving any eye contact at the cash register despite my cash contribution to the store.
People are just not engaged today, everyone is in their own little bubble.

Ideas needed: beets for someone who hates beets

You can make a chocolate cake with them, done during war times during food shortages.

Bitter lemon?

Papillon bulk foods also carries a number of British products. I have never seen Bitter Lemon there, however.

Should I stop baking with pyrex?

You risk cracking the pyrex if you mishandle it, such as putting a hot dish on a cold surface and worse if there is any water on the counter. My Mom had a pyrex dish that she had for well over fifty years, and we still have it which attests to its functional utility. I collect Pyrex, in fact I love it! Great for casseroles.

What's the best way to introduce Lamb to someone who's never had it?

I cooked a local spring lamb a number of years ago for my son's baptism party. I had marinated the lamb in an anchovy and oil blend. Some people at the party did not realize that it was lamb and they enjoyed it. I love that they came away with a different opinion of a food that some claimed to hate.

Peaches are SO wonderful right now...

Picnics with stone fruits and crumbles seem to be your trademark!

Peaches are SO wonderful right now...

Sounds delicious, a dessert like this always looks spectacular in a nice glass or serving dish. I bought peaches and raspberries this weekend but got sidetracked so just eating them out of the basket will have to do!

Lots of wild blackberries

That sounds like an amazing pairing.

The view from the kitchen window

I could envision someone in a garden chair, reading a book, looks very peaceful.

What are you baking these days? August 2014 Edition, Part 1 [old]

I would think that an aluminum pan on top of another pan might cause the bottom to bake too fast. Thrift shops have all kinds of pyrex and glass dishes if you are not against using second hand cookware.

I would have a fruit platter, what could be wrong with fruit? I don't know what you can safely serve as your mains.

HAMBURGERS! Home Cooking Dish of the Month for August 2014

A friend of mine works at a butcher shop part time. She recommended getting Boston steak minced, adding some bacon to it for burgers. I tried it, and loved it.

Jamming, canning and preserving 2014

I do not seem to be able to make jam, mine never sets but I have had good luck making apple and grape jelly. They had red currants in the farmer's market here, a little box was $4.00. I would love to make something with currants.

Recommendations for a great steak in St. Jerome Qc

We quite liked Steak Etc. the first time we went to it. The service is good. I did not like it as much the second time around in terms of food. I would give them another try however.

What's your best yard sale or thrift store cookware find?

Well I got a great set of dishes on Saturday, green transfer ware, for a mere three dollars. I quite like them.
