This is the recipe I use...I use the whole 8 oz package of cream cheese though. They're fluffy, a bit like cake rather than cheesecake.

roxlet suggested I make this cake, knowing there's a cherry fanatic in the house. I made a half-recipe and used my sour cherries preserved in vodka as well as their syrup instead of the maraschino cherries (which, bleh). It stuck to the pan a bit (used Wilton's cake release spray, they warned you needed to grease and flour, silly moi) and took about the full time it said to bake. Smells and looks good.

They were illegal to grow here for ages because they were supposed to carry some sort of citrus or other blight. zi think they can grow them now, but not many do.

Old Sichuan 老正川 – Good Sichuan Food in Chinatown

We love this place. Had some excellent salt and pepper softshell crabs there the last time we went (from the specials blackboard).

They're hard to come by here. I've seen red and white ones lately, no black.

I baked like a maniac when I was in Iowa a week ago -- an apricot kuchen, 3 Japanese cheesecakes, and 5 lb of flour's worth of rolls.

I haven't been baking since the weekend, but I bet a lot of you have. I really do need to get onto that kouign amann project. Maybe this weekend...

What's sayin' lovin' from your oven these days?

Long Gone But Not Forgotten! Manhattan Memories

I know Chalet Suisse was mentioned, but I really miss it...and wonder why there aren't any more Swiss restaurants around anymore?

They do sound good. Wish I'd had this last week, my MIL is mad for malt.

"Care and Management of Lies"; a historical novel with a strong food theme

Jacqueline Winspear's other books are very good too.

Is there a link to the Bouchon or the Ad Hoc recipe available?

Makes sense. I use 72% most of the time.

I use 1/4 c of cocoa sometimes for that part of the flour in the Supernaturals. That is odd, why would double the recipe change your opinion of them?

Where are the best Chinese restaurants in New York?

I'm thrilled Hunan House is open again, must go. Hunan Manor in Manhattan is good but not as good as HH was.

Also cooked dinner 2 nights. Phew. Quantity cooking is not my thing (my SIL helped a lot, however).
