Sumac and Mint Aioli

Perfect combination that I had not thought of, and I happen to have sumac and fresh mint on hand. I just might add a bit of creme fraiche to it for a salad dressing. Thanks Kenji!

Which are the Best Inexpensive Mandoline Slicers?

I often just use the little hand held OXO when I am not slicing a big quantity. What I happen to love it for, though, is camping. Nice thin slices of potato and onion in aluminum foil packets cook up well over the campfire and I just slice them right over the squares of foil.

Poll: What Do You Do With Your Crusts?

Well, I share mine with Miss Ellie, of course.

Honey for dipping pizza crusts?

I can see doing that. I would doctor up the honey with a bit of Aleppo chile flakes and a squeeze of lemon juice or a dash of champagne vinegar. Think Mike's Hot Honey, but milder. Also, be picky on what honey you choose. I love orange blossom honey and a local Finger Lakes wild flower honey, but I'm not crazy about clover honey.

Chef's Choice PetitePie Maker, Like a Waffle Iron for Mini Pies

My kids love mini pot pies. They also now love quiche. This might be something they could use themselves with pre-made pie dough, rolled out and ready to go with their favorite fillings. I bet it would also be awesome for quiche. My older son would probably be tempted to make deep dish extra cheesy pizza, too.

Roosterfish in Watkins Glenn, NY or Middle Ages in Syracuse, NY. Empire Brewing is pretty good, too.

Okay, crackers sorted - Now for the toppings!

Brie, Aleppo veggie cream cheese, honey goat cheese, any kind of cheese really with a bit of spicy mustard, tuna or chicken salad. Oh, and cucumber on top of any creamy spreadable cheese. I love crackers.

Headed Cross Country, Need Suggestions!

Yes, I will detail your car, and redox's car. However, I am not tall enough to detail TXCraig1's big old red diesel pick up truck, so one must provide a stepping stool or a boost if I lose.
I will happily polish and buff away if someone (Craig) provides some great pizza!

Headed Cross Country, Need Suggestions!

Over on pizzamaking.com one of the members recommended this Neapolitan place, 5th Street Pub in Perrysburg, OH. You could also stop off at Lorenzo's in Oberlin, OH, which AK talked about over on Slice.

I'd have to agree with Adam on this one. There's a black stone thread on pizzamaking.com and the pictures of the pizzas people have been turning out are amazing.

Poll: Are You a White Pie Person?

I love white pies, easy on the cheese, topped with cherry tomatoes and lemon dressed arugula or cherry tomatoes and zucchini. Of course, they also have to have a healthy sprinkle of Aleppo.
