I think the CCC recipe has milk powder in it, which sounded interesting to me.

It looked good at first glance but I probably won't keep it because many of the (very unique and delicious-sounding) recipes include too many sub-recipes.

Three Cup Chicken recipe

I was curious about this dish, as well. I just read about in the new cookbook "The Food of Taiwan."

April 2015 COTM: POLPO - Chapters 1 & 2, Cich├Ęti & Breads

I just ordered one of these! I haven't made pizza in 7 years - since we moved. I never put the baking stone back in the oven. Also acquired one of these, but haven't been bothered to go buy a gas tank to set it up:

Chocolate Chip Cookies from the new book "Cookie Love." I have a favorite CCC recipe, but can't help trying new ones. This one has baking soda and baking powder. I did change the ratio of sugar:dark brown sugar so there's much more dark brown sugar, which is in line with my usual recipe.

I just took a look at the bookstore. A lot of recipes, many from her childhood. Lots of what I might call wacky recipes, but definitely a good number I'd like to try. Index is available for viewing on Amazon.

I particularly enjoyed this line:
"So she quit her job as a consultant, attended Google University and transformed herself into an uncredentialed expert in everything she admittedly can't pronounce."

I made the speculoos someone posted on here not too long ago - can't seem to find the post. Very delicious and crisp. The spice blend was perfect.

Made some hot cross buns using a Parker House roll recipe and adding spices, candied orange peel and golden raisins.

If you can find it, Calabro whole milk ricotta is very good.

I was also wondering about freezing these because we wouldn't be able to eat them all. I think, based on what I've read elsewhere in the book, that you should freeze them after they're cooked, but more guidance would be appreciated!

I've re-read "Clementine in the Kitchen" many times. Also love "Katish: Our Russian Cook" from the same series.

Anyone else hate the new Saveur makeover, or is it just me?

The April issue also went into the trash. Sad.

I really enjoyed it. I used sorghum and didn't notice it being too heavy. I liked the strong ginger note and allspice is always a welcome addition.

I don't care for it either (though I don't hate BA the way some do). The last issue of Saveur was the first one in recent memory that I had ZERO interest in and threw away.

Laurie Colwin's Gingerbread (used bourbon vanilla sorghum in place of molasses since it had been languishing in the pantry for a while)

Will try. I had the rice-stuffed lotus root in Shanghai on Fuchsia's trip a few years ago and loved it.
