Mybe not quite as crisp as it could have been, but not soggy.

Cardamom is a brilliant idea in apple pie.

The only baking around here was this impromptu quiche for a brunch today with dear friends and their darling baby...baby did not partake, of course. Crust is all-butter from CI Best Recipes (orange one), 2 leeks thinly sliced and sautéed in butter, about 3 oz cheese cut into small cubes, 4 eggs and 1 1/2 cup cream with salt, pepper, nutmeg. 400 deg F for 15 mins, 375 deg F for about 20. Shell was not prebaked.

I sent them an email, as if that would do any good. I'm disappointed because everything worked so well with them before.

The spray. Just on the madeleines, I've used it on other things (even the swirl pan) and it's worked.

It's not foolproof (answering souschef).

It isn't. It seems to me I used the brush-on one and it worked fine.

They're very hard to find frozen, the only place I know that carries them is a Hy-Vee in Davenport (or Bettendorf), IA (family lives near there).

That's because you live where the Scots ones are readily available. I love them. Down here they put out sweet marmalade only.

I'm a big fan of RCC, especially because it's Hunanese, a cuisine that's less available (and written about) than Sichuanese.
To Joan N: What cut of beef do you use with cumin? I've never made it at home.

Beijing Pop Kebab -- new nothern Chinese restaurant at 122 Mulberry

So we went there for lunch today. I was more interested in the snacky things, but my faithful dining companion wanted to try dishes. We had Beijing pickled cabbage (very similar to kimchee), beef curry fried dumplings, fish with soft doufu, lotus root in spicy black bean sauce, and slivered duck with Chinese chives. All quite tasty. I especially liked the dumplings (sheng jian bao style). The restaurant is attractive inside and the service was excellent. A place to go back to soon.

I haven't gotten an email about any delays...send the damn book already!

It does seem a lot of work, and you'd need a gang to finish it -- doesn't seem it would keep.

I made RLB's chocolate almond pound cake yesterday morning (yum -- used sour cherries I had preserved in vodka a year or so ago) and madeleines today, because we were almost out. Not pleased with how the Wilton (spray) cake release worked, will go back to butter and flour next time. They stuck. The ridges aren't as pronounced on some of them.

Mine is actually fairly light-coloured metal.

Beijing Pop Kebab -- new nothern Chinese restaurant at 122 Mulberry

Passed by this place on the way to Shanghai Heping yesterday, in the midst of the San Gennaro madness (we had gotten stuck in the crowd at Canal and Mulberry and headed up Mulberry to get over to Mott...big mistake, it was mobbed). In any case, the menu looks VERY interesting, with various jiaozi (boiled dumplings, lamb with scallion, beef with celery, and pork with leek and shrimp among them); various kebabs spicy or not spicy, lamb, beef, chicken, sausage, "fish tofu", fish balls...); Qingdao-style snacks such as fried dumplings, pan-fried buns with beef curry (me want bad) and with pork, "sauced beef roll cake" and one with beef and chili peppers; Beijing pickled vegetables (spicy and sour cabbage); Beijing-style noodles including zha jiang mian of course and some cold ones; and a couple of "cab [driver]" dishes...plus a range of the usual dishes and some more unusual ones, like sliced lotus root with black bean sauce. Looks well worth trying out. It seems just to have opened and at not a terribly propitious time, since you really have to get through the feast crowds to get there right now. Can't wait to try it.
Sorry I can't give you the Chinese name because it's written in seal characters which I can't read. The Chinese on the menu is in simplified characters.

Since it's just about the 15th and I have a little time on my hands, I thought I'd start part two. I have a yen to bake something today but can't get it together to choose a recipe. Any ideas? And what are you baking these days?
