Double Chocolate–Caramel Cookies

Loved this recipe! I used some local (MN) Knudsen's caramels cut in half... and then topped them with a bit of coarse celtic sea salt- YUM! If you love salted butter caramel... this works! They were moist and the caramels didn't harden at room temp! Will become part of the permanent cookie list.

Best Dim Sum In SF

We had great Dim Sum in SF this weekend. We went to the Great Oriental in Chinatown on Washington. They didn't have carts- but it was great! We were with someone who lived in Hong Kong for 7 years and spoke Cantonese fluently - and he loved it. It was recommended by a man we ran into in the live market area. He said the food was good and economical! He was right- it was very reasonable, yummy, and a great selection. We were the only non-Chinese in the place and had two small kids with us.... they were really nice and we enjoyed it immensely.

Jamie Oliver - Cookbook and Flavor Shaker

Hi- I have a flavor shaker as well. Did the same thing, had a friend in England ship it over. I like it a lot- it allows me to make salad dressing quickly for myself at lunch, or quick marinades... I need some new recipes though.

My one complaint is that it leaks at times when I'm shaking it. I don't know if I have a faulty one or if I"m putting too much liquid in or what.

As far as I know, they are not yet available in the US. But if you go to the
flavourshaker.co,uk they have a list of retailers- some are online. I wonder if you could purchase it online.
