DIY or Buy? Urban Homesteaders Weigh the Costs

Pizza crust needing 24 hours notice? Only if you are into the fool/bigna starter hype. Mix yeast, flour, water and olive oil; let rest 15 minutes; roll out; put in pan; top bake -- or
buy premade pizza dough
Methinks you don't like cleaning up the flour from the counter.

Grey Corned Beef?

Is there anyplace in the South Bay or North OC that sells grey corned beef? I'm a native New Englander and want to do St. Paddy's day old style.

Lexington Motor Inn

In the 1960's my grandparents had an annual Christmas Party for us at the Lexington Motor Inn. The main dish was "Chicken Eugene". I've Googled this and found recipes using chicken breast, chipped beef , sour cream and cream of chicken soup. Others use ham instead of chipped beef. Does anybody remember the composition of the dish at the Lexington Motor Inn? There are a lot of nostalgic memories riding on this.

Dohedah's Cake

Yes, it was a yellow cake - I'm not sure about the meringue topping. Thanks I'm so glad that you remember it. Maybe I am mixing it up with the "wowie cake"

Dohedah's Cake

Does anyone have a recipe for this cake? It may be spelt Doheda I think it was in the Boston Globe Cookbook for Brides published in the 1960's. It was very simple to make - the wet ingredients were put into a measuring cup and then mixed with the dry ingredients (maybe in the cake pan?).

I hope someone has this recipe.

Seeking DELIVERY Options Lakewood Area

For pizza try Rezzini's. It's right over the line in Long Beach where Los Coyotes Diagonal & Studebaker meet. phone 439-8989.

They may not be up to New York standards, but they do a pretty good pie their sandwiches are good too.

Slow Cooker Advice

I've given up on my 1 year old Rival Crock Pot - everything dries out. Informal polls of friends and coworkers show they have the same results. Can someone recommend another brand slow cooker to purchase? I'm open to all price ranges.
