Cranberry sauce recipes from the 90s ... I know it's a long shot : (

Bon Appetite's November issue did this for several years, so unless you know which year you had, there are going to be a lot of different cranberry sauce recipes.

Rule #1...always...

That's funny, I was sitting here reading this and, guess what, I had eggs on to boil I had forgotten about. Thanks to you they have been rescued.

Best martini olives?

I buy mine at my liquor store just across the border in California. Lindsay also makes an onion stuffed olive.

Thoughts on restaurants that claim to source locally, but don't

Thank you for enlightening me. Being a left coaster where we still get wild salmon I just assumed Atlantic salmon was wild.

I don't understand the raised eyebrow. Unless they have turned the Atlantic Ocean into a ginormous farm, isn't Atlantic salmon wild?

Hello, I am looking for some recommendations for store bought marinades, sauces, and pre-mixed seasonings for chicken

Keeping with the Thai theme, I like peanut sauce.

St George Gins [California]

I bought the mini trio today, tried the Terrior and it tastes like pine resin. Vermouth didn't help, nor did tonic. Any suggestions for making a palatable cocktail.

TOO MANY CHERRY TOMATOES!

I have a pot of Sun Golds on the stove. I sauteed onions & garlic in a lot of olive oil, added the tomatoes, sprigs of rosemary & thyme and I'm cooking it until I like the consistency, will then put it through a food mill and freeze in zip lock bags.

Tomato preserves. Ever made it ?

I made tomato jam using the recipe from the Sept. issue of Food & Wine. You grate the tomatoes on a box grater, no skin.

Cherry Brandy - Cointreau?? Marnier?

Thank you, sounds like the Cherry Heering is worth a revisit. I was just wondering if trying both would be redundant.

What are some good higher proof bourbons that aren't expensive, like Evan Williams?

I pay $16.99 for a 1.75L of Evan Williams black label. You might try Jim Beam Black, same proof as Evan Williams, $26.99 for a 1.75L. (California prices)

Humphrey Bogart’s Real English Gin set for US launch

I'll probably buy it for the bottle, like I did the Duke bourbon.

The view from the kitchen window

Very funny, unfortunately it is a Japanese maple. We are legal for medical but not recreational. And thanks everyone for the compliments.

The view from the kitchen window

A foggy morning on the Oregon coast.

Call it something else, but please don't call it a margarita.

Right on!

HAMBURGERS! Home Cooking Dish of the Month for August 2014

I prefer pork burgers too. I rather like the ground pork I get from Fred Meyers and Telera rolls from La Brea bakery. I either do Mexican with diced poblano peppers, onion, garlic, cilantro and appropriate seasonings, topped with pepper jack cheese and chipotle mayo. Or Asian with grated garlic and ginger, diced green onion, a splash of Nuoc Mam and a splash of soy or teriyaki sauce, topped with a creamy Asian slaw.

What's for Dinner #316 - the Hot August Night edition [through August 4, 2014]

I just picked up 5 lbs of fresh from the Pacific snapper. WFD: Snapper piccata and Panzanella salad, tomatoes, cukes and basil from the garden.

lost recipe [mid 1980 Bon Appetit for a Chocolate Mousse Cake]

Could it be this one? It has instant coffee & chocolate curls.
