? name of Italian fried honey cookies

My Gram, Aunties, Mom and I would make "ribbon cookies". She would make a soft dough that had some orange zest in it, roll it out into thin strips using a pasta machine, then we would cut them into long 1" or so wide strips, pinch the sides together forming pockets, then pinch the pockets together forming a rosette. She would then fry them and we would drizzle with honey and top with powdered sugar.

Carrots in stuffing?

I wouldn't use them in my Southern cornbread stuffing. It is super quick and easy to chop up some onions and celery. Save the mirepoix for Turkey soup.

Recommendation for Sunday afternoon lunch/brunch in Boulder?

Not sure how late Tangerine serves, I have had two wonderful breakfasts there recently. They are at 28th and Iris, part of the Arugula Restaurant family.

Feeding the cancer patient who becomes a transplant patient

I was thinking about my white bean and pasta soup, lot's of protein, carbs, and flavor. You could make that, then freeze in small portions for reheating as needed. Wondering if you could make mini meatloafs, then freeze, cook as needed. I always like to have meatballs on hand in the freezer. Bake them, then freeze, add to sauce to finish the cooking process. Best of luck on the treatments, hang in there!

Non-dairy mashed potatoes

I used rice milk, butter, salt and pepper this time, I did add some shallots as well. They tasted just like the real thing. I didn't care for the ones I made with Almond milk, they had a "flavor" to them.

Your best lentil soup recipe?

I have an Italian recipe that calls for small pasta to be added. Haven't made that one in awhile, I think I will have to give it a go.

Hi, my name is _______ and I'm addicted to ________ .(food only please!)

I am interested in this, I think I could become addicted to Kimchi. What brand do you suggest I start out with. I like the sound of it mixed with the rice. What do you mean by cooked down with pork?

Is there anyway to tell when an egg has 2 yolks?

When I was in CA, I shopped at Trader Joe's and purchased the Jumbos. I had double yolks all the time. They were BIG eggs!!!

best kitchen design

I am a kitchen Designer and have to say that I have loved my last two kitchens that were U shaped with an island in the middle. Fortunetly I was able to have the space to do that type of a lay out. I like that I have a cooking zone with prep and sink area, a clean up zone adjacent to the cooking area, and another area for storage and refrigeration. It makes it easy to have 2 people working in the kitchen at the same time, and not get into each others way. See my avitar for my latest kitchen.

Get into a group quick, before it all takes you down. Maybe start by kicking just one of those delicious nasty habits, then go from there.

Finally....an excuse to put in a garden, after 30 years of farm stands

I put in my first garden ever this year, 90% by seed. I had no problem with pests, and thats the way I like it. I did summer and winter squash, basil, Swiss Chard, potatoes, celery, onions, garlic, watermelon, cantalope, cucumbers (on the fence), bush beans, sugar peas, lettuces, spinach, sorrel, arugula, beets, radishes, carrots, peppers, and tomatoes. Here in Colorado, the leafy greens were finished by July, the Swiss Chard is still going strong, I had a shit load of tomatoes and cucumbers and canned my arss off. The pickles are DELICIOUS!!!!! It was an experiment and one I am very happy with. I will do seeds again, they were work but worth it in the end. I amended the soil with a organic veg mix that included Poultry poop. No fertilizers, just water and a bit of talking to. Have fun with it, be happy with what you get, and look forward to many rewarding summer days picking your bounty!!!

Loved our Black Krim's!!! Big Brandywines were meaty, Romas great for sauces, and Red Siberians were lovely sweet gems.

Which Heirloom Tomatoes did you prefer this Summer

I grew some beautiful Brandywines, they were a gorgeous golen orange yellow. Very meaty, with an almost squash like taste. The Black Krim's that I grew were out of this world GOOD, very juicy, robust, and a treat to get to eat.

Savory winter squash tamales or empanades?

I grew a boat load of winter squash and have a notion that I should make something spicy with them. I like the idea of a tamale or empanada and have done a little research. There are plenty of sweet versions, some savory, nothing that looks outstanding. Anyone have something they would like to share? I prefer something without cheese, as the dairy and I do not get along.
