The whole process is very much simplified if you have a couple of small ice cream scoops -- one that's a tablespoon size, and another that's a teaspoon size. That way, the cookies cook evenly.

What's for Dinner #292 - The Hippity-Hop Edition!

It works really well since the shape of the sausage coins mimics that of the wagon wheels. And for anyone who might be interested, the chicken sausage in lamb casing from Whole Foods was fabulous.

I made a version of the strawberry whipped cream cake from The Baking Book (Cook's Illustrated). At first, everyone seemed to be disappointed that it wasn't strawberry shortcake, but the cake was actually a big success. Hmmm. Maybe I should take another look at it myself. I was going to make a couple of pies, but I don't think that the response from my husband and son was that enthusiastic. My husband suggested some sort of lemon mousse (which he would likely make), and I suggested a lemon dacquoise, a recipe for which I saw on line (Fine Baking, maybe). So, in other words, I still don't know what I am making for Sunday's dessert.

Damn you, you gave those to me!

Another disappointing week, but I am resolved to dig in. Not going last week was a big mistake, which compounded the problem. With Easter coming up, it's Sunday will be difficult, but I will definitely try to track more religiously this week. Oy vey.

Tonights dinner will be a favorite pasta dish from Marcella Hazan. Sausages are cut into rounds and browned. Garlic and tomatoes are added, and after "the fat floats to the surface." (this is the odd phrase I've seen Marcella use more than once), a bit of cream is added. This is served with wagon wheel pasta, which mimics the shape of the coins of sausage. I'll be making a salad to go with this. Since we have an Egyptian in the house, the sausage is Italian chicken sausage in lamb casing that I got at Whole Foods.

Which recipe did you use? I usually use the one from thefreshloaf.com. These look very good.

Easter is on its way, and I will begin the preparations of my specialties starting Friday, but for those of the Jewish faith, Passover is well underway, and foodies are finding clever ways to cook without bread or other leavened foods.

What's for dinner as you celebrate Passover or prepare for the end of the Lenten Fast?

I always toss the store flyers, so I didn't notice it.

I see that it was where the Thai restaurant was. It was the road that was closed for a couple of years, which killed that business. I hope this does well.

Quick lunch off 287 or 684?

Try the Village Dog in Tarrytown for house-made artisanal hot dogs.

Not bad -- 2 tablespoons is one point.

So I am just about to embark on my Easter baking. I have ordered the ingredients for the Pizza Rustica, and I am heading off to the market to pick up a couple of additional sacks of flour. At this time of year, I always wish there was a place to buy fresh yeast for the Easter Bread that I make. I know it doesn't really matter, but I think the taste is slightly different...

I love cilantro. How many points per serving, and how large is the serving?
