Alright, bit of an odd question. Does anyone know, where in the grocery store, where Mascarpone would be? I've looked up and down at all three grocery stores in my area and cannot, for the life of me, find it. I'm wondering if stores around here simply don't sell it; or if I'm just dumb and overlooking it. (And yes, I did ask for help, but at one store I just got a strange look and was told hesitantly "Um...maybe...the dairy section...?" and the second I was thoroughly ignored by the girl behind the counter. She was too busy discussing her schedule with her co-worker.)
Alternatively, does anyone know any companies that sell it online? Thanks!
I was at the Farmer's Market today and bought some beets on a whim remembering how much I liked them as a kid. Of course, as soon as I got home and stared at the odd looking balls, I realized I had absolutely no clue as to what to do with them. I've never cooked them; my mother's never cooked them; nor has my father.
So, help me. What do I do with beets?!
I bought some crab meat last night; jumbo lump. I'd like to make a light salad (lettuce and a light dressing-not mayo based) I was thinking olive oil and lemon juice; what else would you add to the dressing? I was just going to to go with salt and pepper; but that seems a little blah to me.
I'm looking for something different for dessert on Valentine's Day. I was just going to do a regular buttermilk chocolate sheet cake, but now I'm thinking that's boring. I want something really...different.
I'm looking for something that's more savoury-sweet, not sweet-sweet. I was thinking popovers with carmelized onion jam; with the sweetness coming from the onions (probably carmelized with a little brown sugar as well). I'm bit unsure, still.
Does anyone have a good savoury-sweet recipie, or one thats not OVERLY sweet?
I need a good recipe for a pumpkin pie. It can't include booze (unfortunately...) . I've only made pumpkin pie once, and it wasn't that great. It was passable, but not great. Since I'm making it for my boyfriend's family, and since he's already bragged to them how good I can cook, I'd like something that will knock their socks off...or at least make them not think I'm a total hack.
Is heavy whipping cream the same as heavy cream? If so, what is the difference? I know heavy cream has to do with the fat content. Is it just a choice by companies to not put whipping on the carton, or is it somehting else?
I love chicken salad. Usually I make it with chopped walnuts and dried cranberries, salt, pepper, and a little dash of cayenne. But this is getting a little old...and I want something new. What do you add to your chicken salad? Do you fry up your chicken first? (I boil mine.) Tell me your secrets! :-)
When you get hit with a craving for chocolate, what do you reach for? I reach for anything by Ritter Sport, particularly the dark or milk chocolate with whole hazelnuts or the alpine milk chocolate. Oh, or the chocolate covered biscuit. What about you? Do you reach for pure dark chocolate? Milk chocolate? Something with nuts? Or fruit? Or will anything do?
Growing up, we had a Sunday Brunch around noon at my grandparents house. Good fresh bagels, rye bread, lox, cream cheese, whitefish salad, chopped liver, liverwurst, dry roasted sliced turkey, ham, several kinds of cheese all came from the small Jewish deli, as well as wonderfully crisp lettuce, tomatoes, onions, capers to top them with. Home made dishes included german potato salad (the best kind. Lots of pepper and bacon, mmm...) and cold cucumber salad. Everything was so good and fresh! It brings back wonderful memories of my childhood.
My question to you is: Did you have a Sunday Bruch? What foods graced your table?
I love lemon, especially in savory cooking. My favorite at the moment is lemon baked chicken, where the chicken is basted in a mix of lemon juice, butter, salt, and pepper. But due to my overabundance of lemon and pasta in my cupboard, I want to know if anyone has a good recipe combining these two ingrediants.
