Rice Spelt Commercial bread brand?

Thank you again for your website and advice! I am looking for a commercial bread I can buy in my local grocery store that is primarily made of rice and spelt. Looking to lose weight and have read that bread made of rice and spelt versus whole wheat bread flour is better for losing weight.

Any advice/suggestions and links would be appreciated!

Would love to read about your recent steak dinner here. Which sauces have you tried and can you describe it? Did you try any particular wine?

Thank you!

Portland advice please

Thank you for your advice! Husband and I are going to a seminar in Portland for two nights in late April and Sat night will be our dinner out. We haven't been to dinner in Portland. We are looking for rec's for a good steak for hubby and I enjoy a great salad and am open to any recommendations. We would love a place that has decent prices for a good wine list. We are not gourmets but I'm a great cook and as we haven't been out in a long time, are really looking forward to it!

Would like recommendations for Sat night dinner within 10 mi of Exit 8 in Nashua. Husband would like a good steak. I would love a good salad, or salad bar and not to be gouged on the wine list.

I would like to take advantage of the free shuttle service within 10 miles of 2 Somerset Parkway in Nashua. Would appreciate all your advice and recommendations as we haven't been out in Nashua!

Thank you for this board!

Anyone have a DeLonghi Toaster Conv Rotis #RO2058 oven?

Continuing my search for my perfect fit toaster convection oven as I cannot afford the Breville as I'm out of a job! I saw a DeLonghi toaster convection rotissier oven today at the Kitchen Etc. store for $80. less than even the Cuisinart!

Anyone have this model R02058 - I'm interested in the rotissier too, no other models have this and its a bit smaller footprint than the Cuisinart.

Thanks members!

Need updated advice on convection - toaster oven purchase please

Thank you all so much - I did find several threads on this subject and all were very helpful.

I'm having difficulty deciding whether we need a convection but from what I gathered reading all the threads if one is using a small toaster oven cooking for two it does help alot with the even heating so I can't think why not spend the extra $$ for the convection.

Appreciate all the advice!

Need updated advice on convection - toaster oven purchase please

After almost 10 years, my DeLongi convection oven heat rod has died (sigh...). I loved my small convection oven cooking for two. Have done alot of research on this board and am still confused. Would like a smaller convection at a smaller price due to both DH and I losing our jobs, but have to replace this kitchen item.
would appreciate advice on brand and any links for the best price.

Thanks!

North Conway, NH Rec's

Hi Joe, we just had my cousins wedding at the Eagle Mountain House in Jackson and probably the best brunch I have ever had. Salmon, prime rib, salads, chocolate unbelievable, etc. etc. Wonderful - and the drive up from the town is just awesome! We had a GREAT salad the day before at the Christmas Farm Inn in Jackson, the fish dish was wonderful too. Also, I have heard the Stonehurst Manor near Glen is great. Had a great ceasar salad at Delaney's in No. Conway too. Have fun and report back, please!

where to buy a butane portable in NH?

thanks much for the advice - yes, I'm looking for the 10,000 btu single burner portable butane. This is actually for picnics on our boat for just 2 people; we do not use an LP hookup - just the can of butane. Thanks much for that link !
