What are you baking these days? September 2015 edition!

They look delicious! Are these similar to butter cookies, or wedding cookies? I love those and love anything coconut, could you share the recipe? Thanks.

Picked too many nectarines this weekend which of course are all ready at once! Finally made SK peach shortbread with the chilled brown butter, they smell unbelievable when mixxing it up! Haven't tried them yet, most will go to work.

Also made a double batch of "nectarine sherbet". Basically partially frozen sliced nectarines and sweetened condensed milk in a FP. So easy and so good! We will have it all winter. Only thing I don't like about this is it needs to get defrosted a bit before eating once it totally freezes.

The rest of them went in the dehydrator :)

September 2015 COTM Adjunct Thread: ALL SOUTHERN COOKBOOKS

Wow! I have a copy of this as well, 1939. My mom bought me this book, as she also has one, and loves the corn fritter recipe! I don't know what edition she has. It is quite a book, I have not cooked anything from it except the fritters, it sits more on the shelf as a memento. Thanks for reminding me of this:)

It's still impossibly slow to scroll through posts, especially long ones on my iPad. Any fixes planned for this? Oh, and to echo someone else, any ETA on live? Thanks

That's to bad you had such a bad experiences there. I only had one issue with them when they went from BYO to having their own liquor license and their corkage fee was ridiculous! I usually only order the cavatapi, and I have the recipie for that so it won't be much of a loss.

Oh no, We like Pazzo for a decent, not fancy dinner....but it has gone down hill ever since they opened the second location.....I think 1st and Last is going in where Hanafins Pub used to be. Haven't been to one in ages, is it more of a middle of the road Italian /pizzas?

Btw, just had a pretty poor dinner at Maggie McFlys, not sure how that place stays in business and is always so packed.

Hadn't heard about Nardellis moving in so thanks for the update.

Will be interested to see what goes into the Flanagans Landing when that gets up and running, but I think that won't be till fall 2016....

What are you baking these days? August 2015 [OLD]

Only prep baking this weekend, making a couple of batches of vodka crust. One will get frozen and one will be baked into I think a peach pie for a work pie contest.....feeling a bit uninspired, but peach seemed the natural choice since I just picked about 20 lbs this morning. Any other pies you would recommend? Looking for fairly simple, that would win me a pie contest:)

Is the summer special menu posted anywhere on the website? Thanks

Waterbury CT recommendations?

Hi, we eat in Waterbury every couple of months due to family obligations, and looking for some recommendations. We are not fussy eaters, but we are struggling to find good restaurants. Would love any suggestions, thanks.

Dehydrating garden goodies

Funny, I found this post after reading the KA thread:). I rarely go into gardening, sort of live in HC. I use mine as does weezi, to dry ingredients vs recipes, but if you do a search on here, I know here are some other dehydrator threads with recipes for crackers, fruit leather, etc.....my favorite is to dry peaches and apples and tomatoes. Have tried a lot of other things, but those 3 take up most of the drying time. Enjoy your new toy!

Good to hear you enjoyed the classes, and I agree, it's a lot to take in in one weekend but it sounds like fun! What classes did you take?

Just curious if there is a "where is everyone going" post that I can follow? I will see what the change is like, and probably won't totally go away, but would like to see what others have found or gone to so I can follow the great community that I have found here....

Thanks, I am on old chow for as long as I can be:). I think it may be the iPad that is the problem, no page numbers, I will check when I'm on the desktop.....

Any foolproof way to roast chestnuts ...?

Just curious, are they local chestnuts or supermarket chestnuts? Reason I ask is that when I went to CA last year and brought some home, I found them much easier to work with. The farm where I got them recommended freezing them until I was ready to use them, I bought them in September and used around thanksgiving. I also did a knife cut all the way around, without scoring all the way through, vs an X that cuts all the way in....

I wanted to look up a post I commented on back in fall of 2014, but when I went to my profile and posts, it only scrolled down to about a month ago, and no way to page further ....is there a trick to finding old posts besides doing a search on the subject or my user name? Thanks.
