Salt flakes

I have found a few recipes that call for salt flakes but it is hard to come by in my area. I was wondering if I could make my own from brine to obtain the proper texture. Has anyone done this?

Christmas day dinner in Williamsburg

Hi Sarah, We are making the same trip for the holidays and I am searching for a place to eat on Christmas. I did make a reservation at the Black Angus - but still keeping my options open. If you have not found a restaurant yet, check out their menu on line. Merry Christmas to you!

Looking for a Bed and Breakfast, Inn with good food in Wilkes-Barre

Hi...I grew up in this area it is not known for it's B and B's. I have passed this one several times and it looks inviting but I don't have any first hand knowledge of it . It is about 10 minutes from Wilkes Barre. Here is a link for one that is downtown Wilkes Barre : Again I have no personnal experience but it is worth looking into.

How do you toast almonds?

I am with you Chowser - toasting all nuts in the microwave makes it easy and fast and no extra oil (calories) added.

Emerald cocoa roast almonds

Thanks Mandalay! I will post my results as soon as I try that recipe. You are right Steakman they take the place of dessert for me and that is a good thing!

Dining in Downtown Harrisburg

We are planning a trip to see a show at the Whitaker Center and staying in the Hilton right there. Can anyone recommend a good place to eat either before or after the show? Not looking for anything formal - just good tasty food of an interesting nature. Thank you!

We discovered the new Japanese restaurant that opened on 611. The name is Shiro and they offer excellent sushi.
