Lamb and olives is a match made in heaven. Green olives work well too.
I had a fennel cream soup years ago that still haunts me. Efforts to replicate it are futile.
RIP Arnie. I made one on Monday (layering it) and poured a couple of drops out in his memory.
I made them using whipped cream vodka instead of the creme de cacao. I was afraid the alcohol would hinder the freezing process, but everything turned out fine.
Knife? I just use scissors.
I generally use parsley ir cilantro for my herbs. It's also a great way to use up stems.
YASS to the deviled eggs. I have never seen a leftover deviled egg at any gathering- BBQ, potluck, picnic, or party. There are even special egg carriers with little oval compartments for them.
My husband took me to Oakland about ten years ago. It was quite a letdown after a week in San Francisco. Maybe now it's worth a revisit.
I was amazed by the state stores in PA. I had a friend across the river (I grew up in New Jersey) and it was much more common for him to go to a liquor store when visiting me. The prices were better and the selection more diverse when in NJ.
I've found my mojo.
I keep hearing that damn Warrant song.
Ah, Jolie, I love when my internet friends find my other sites. I adored your book and look forward to seeing more columns at SE. There is so much work for you here as every kitchen item needs its own set of special cleaning instructions.
Did anyone get Coke syrup as "medicine" in the 70's and 80's? This was dispensed over ice cubes to sip when I had an upset stomach or some kind of flu. It was the same syrup that comes in 5 gallon bag-in-box for use in fountain soda systems. Mom had a small (maybe 4 or 6 ounce) brown glass bottle of it in the bathroom medicine cabinet. This was the same bottle that prescription cough medicine came in, minus the label. I actually think it was bought from a pharmacy.
What a refreshing take on a too-often overlooked side.
Spring has sprung.
What an art.
Watercress! An underutilized ingredient.
Looks great. I love seafood salad with tons of parsley (or cilantro)!
Could this be adapted for Crock Pot use?
Great story, made me nod and smile a lot. My husband and I generally don't cook together but I think it's more important that our food preferences complement each other.
Instead of butter or schmaltz, I use Orville Redenbacher Popping and Topping oil. It is colored and flavored like butter, but is non-dairy so the balls are parve. It's a great oil to use for cooking or sauteeing. I keep a bottle near the stove and haven't put it on popcorn yet. You can find it in the supermarket next to the popcorn.
there's always webstaurant.com for mail order. I totally agree about the kitchen/bar towels for napkin usage. Much more absorbent than cloth napkins. Or get a big stack of washcloths or handtowels from Bed Bath and Beyond on the clearance table.
Love the Krab sticks. I also love real crab. They are 2 totally different items and if you appreciate each one for what they are, everyone wins.
