my daughter started off with teens cook, it's written by teenage sisters one a vegetarian... and their mom is a cook. http://www.amazon.com/Teens-Cook-How-What-Want/dp/1580085849
cost plus world market carried it. you can also order it online http://www.oregonchai.com.
i don't think it's too much of a twist but my uncle george makes us gnocchi and serves it with a red duck sauce.
@ feriorrenna... those are called scotchmallows.... the only see's candy i eat.
check out my blog, there is contact info there... if you like what you see.
when i first learned how to make an omelet. just this year.
these were the same problems i had with it... also some people in a workshop i attended who were very disrespecting of mexican markets[insert finger quotes] and other areas of california.
i am going to the charcuterie workshop. it's suppose to among other things address how it help to save a family business. i really wanted to go to the workshop about throwing a four course dinner for four for under 50 dollars. there are a lot of points that ed talks about that are very valid and i am interested to see how slow food addresses them. i'll report back on sunday!
my sister only had blueberries once and that happened to her, she also had lots of swelling and hives.
i really don't have a food ocd but my grandfather has one that cracks me up. you CAN NOT cut a stick of butter crooked. it better be straight, not at an angle, not sliced horizontally from the top. it better be perfect and without any crumbs on the stick of butter or there is hell to pay.
i am an impulsive cook... even though i plan and plan and write out a menu, i still make whatever comes to my mind...case in point is right now...
@black olive... would you mind sharing your recipe for the cherry walnut upside down cake?
i have 5 aprons... 2 are from a chef i used to know... 1 was custom made by my kids teacher it's embroidered with evil chef mom on the front. another is also custom made that looks totally retro. i need to wear pearls and vacuum in heels to wear it! the other is just a plain ol' apron!
well said, chaos. i'm really quite angry at this whole affair. Melissa is a good egg and if you really need the post carefully to understand what happened. I hope the Serious Eats will do a copyright and trademark post. When does a recipe become your own, how many modifications need to be made. I mean everyone has a potato salad recipe. If CI takes recipes from sources and modifies it to make their own recipe, aren't they doing the same thing? I really don't want to start an arguement or any trouble but I really would like know. When I have food questions one of the first places I come to is Serious Eats. If they can't address this topic who will?
i forgot to answer my own question... i like cocnut or strawberry paletas.
@stripeychef... i love smitten kitchen recipe's for pizza dough. they always turn out well.
i'm having peppers and sausage pasta and some homemade focaccia.
I'm in one that is all about the potato. You don't have to do the same recipe, you just have to post your favorite potato recipe every third Wednesday of the month.
i have had that happen to me... ugh, it's so depressing. believe it or not it happened to me with something as simple as a potato salad. i'm sure you'll find a new speciality soon and you can tell us all about it.
Thanks for the ideas...
dip them in a chocolate milkshake!
*banana, i'm in stockton, ca... not very far from you!
oops...i can't spell the fourth. my son's birthday is tomorrow and instead of bbq for his birthday dinner, he's asked for ravioli and an ice cream cake.
I don't want to make anybody 'mad' but my recipe is on my blog.
*jamie...I'm sorry. I didn't want that comment to turn into a bash about Cowgirl Creamery. I wanted to spend a lot of time and money there but the lack of customer service was dissapointing and I got a lot of #4 on your list.
*mmmargie...I know this isn't in SF but 'The Cheese Shop' in Carmel, Ca. has outstanding customer service. You could ask for their most expensive cheese and without blinking an eye they would let you try some and if they had to get a new wheel out, they would. My kids ask for different cheeses and they let them try whatever they whatever they want, knowing they are getting customers for life. My daughter takes her own spending money and blows it all there instead of anywhere else, all because they treat her like an adult.
Cowgirls cheese girls in Point Reyes Station (where they actually make the cheese) were the rudest people I have ever met. I asked to try some cheese and also asked what was good and I got "just let me know when your ready to buy something." then they turned around and finished their conversation about a co-worker.
i also forgot... at at&t, they have something called a cha-cha bowl named after hall of famer, Orlando Cepeda... jerk chicken, black bean, rice, and a vareity of salsas. that's really good, so good i made it at home. how many times do you want to cook food that you had at a game?
