Well, they don't demand, actually. Interestingly, she says she doesn't eat beef, lamb or pork, but she was waxing lyrical on foie gras, lol!

It's King Arthur's land, as I remember. My son has two Welsh players on his team. Not a lot of vowels in the names of the places they come from!

I should have titled the October thread the falling posts edition! I am also to blame having posted so little this month!

I baked an apple cake this weekend, and I sprinkled chopped walnuts onto the apples for a little change. I just finished baking another batch of ccc for some visiting Egyptians. However, what I really want to make is this fall version of strawberry shortcake -- caramel apple shortcake:

I hated most vegetables as a child, and escarole was extremely slimy to me. What was worse was that when my mother would cook it in the pressure cooker, it smelled a lot like artichokes, which I adored, so I got my hopes up, only to have them dashed knowing that I would be spending the rest of the night in front on an uneaten bowl of escarole soup.

That soup was the bane of my childhood, lol!

What cookbooks have you bought lately or are you lusting after? October 2014 Edition.

Ironically, TGC's featured selection is Baking Chez Moi (pub. date October 28th). I wonder if all of us who pre-ordered it way back when will be at the top or the bottom of the fulfillment list...

Now, that's real talent! Despite my craft addictions, I have never been a particularly good pumpkin carver. I even have the original Martha By Mail pumpkin carving set, purchased when my son was little. He's in college now, and it has been mostly unused. I always find pumpkin carving to be very awkward -- the thickness of the shell, and. The sliminess of the inside always conspire to defeat me. I never even try anymore...

The number I have for them is (716) 250-5700. Is that a number you've tried?

I decided that I could resist buying Sugar Rush no longer. It is a really great book that is both very instructional and creative. Though I find some of his combinations not to my taste, there is enough here to get me to bake from the book. The part of the book that I really love, however, are the few pages in the end where Iuzzini shows you how to put together lovely plated desserts from the building blocks in the book.

I was also underwhelmed by Buvette, but many here have liked the book a lot, so I will look again. Similarly, Huckleberry also didn't overwhelm me, though I also liked some of the recipes, all of which I'd describe as homey. At the end of the day, I could have easily lived without either of these books..

I've never added Bourbon, but I always chuck in some espresso powder.

Sounds great, and a perfect opportunity for a quick pizza dinner. Have fun doing the discussion!

Well, there is no butter or oil, so I presume that the mayo and cheese are subbing for them...

Fall-ish weather will arrive here on Sunday in the NY Metro area. Highs in the 50s, lows in the 30s. Time to braise something!

For dinner tonight was a chicken piccata, completely winged, and completely tasty. A salad for me, and not sure what else rjbh20 might have had since he ate after me.

Oh, I got this -- pumpkin whoopie pies! There are a ton of recipes out there, but here's one:
