Baking Books

In the Art & Soul of Baking Cindy Mushet utilizes weight measurements. Love this book - well worth the price!

How do you organize recipes you find online?

I use the recipe box tool at All Recipes.

I can save web links to recipes, copy and paste or type in private recipes and make note of reference recipes (such as the page a favored recipe is found on in a particular cookbook). It's really a neat little free online tool - and I love that I can access it anywhere or anytime on the internet. That alone makes planning and shopping a snap.

Urgent: Still Frozen Meat

I've had success with Alton Brown's recommended method of cold running water over the frozen meat. As I recall, the water must be running constantly rather than submerging the frozen meat in a sink full of water.

What's your 'go-to' vegetarian main dish?

I've made Rachael Ray's Broken Florentine Lasagna a number of times for guests to unanimous raves.

Top-5 Cooking Goals for 2009

It really does work. I lost a great deal of weight last year by cooking high quality food often. Food that tastes great satisfies in smaller amounts. I rarely substituted "light" ingredients, either. Best of luck to you!

Greenbelt Farmer's Market (featuring Zeke's Coffee)

Is this a Saturday or Sunday market?

Even with a line, Zeke's is worth the wait!
