Table salt, sea salt, flake salt, rock salt, finishing salt...

I have also seen flavored finishing flake salts that are colored. For example, the citrus flavor is yellow, the chili flavor has a reddish hue and so on. I even saw black flake salt the other day and it caught my eye. Wondering if anyone has tried black flake salt and if so, what would you use it on?

Foodie gifts gone right/wrong. What did you get for the holidays?

Collapsable silicone measuring cups from Williams Sonoma. Good if you don't have a lot of storage space.

storing fresh herbs

Can fresh herbs be frozen as they are in a freezer bag and then thawed and used at a later date?

Homemade Soup Recipes

I know that garnishing can do a lot for soups...like adding, certain cheeses, sour cream, croutons, etc. My co-worker was telling me about a cream of asparagus soup she had that was finished with a rosemary flavored flake salt sprinkled on top. I hadn't heard of flavored salt before and it sounded interesting. Has anyone else used flavored salts to finish / garnish their recipes? Any tips?

Homemade Soup Recipes

Mmmm is right! Everything sounds great. I have noticed that Butternut Squash seems to be a popular soup flavor in the stores these days, but I have not bought one that compares to some that I had at a restaurant recently. I believe it had ginger in it and was topped with chives and creme fraiche- amazing! Any good Butterut Squash Soup recipes to share?

What to do with Mascarpone

I had a three cheese white pizza the other day with a Marscapone sauce. I believe it had mozzarella, parmesan, and asiago cheeses along with basil and garlic.

What to make for dessert on Christmas?

I am trying white chocolate bread pudding. Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds delicious.

Simple Ways to Liven Up Food on the Grill

I am looking for simple ways to add flavor to grilled meats and vegetables cooked on the grill. My neighbor mentioned using these flavored sea salts she has (lemon, rosemary, chili flavored etc.) as an easy way to acheive great flavor. Has anyone tried any of these flavored sea salts for grilling? If so, any good combinations to share?

Salty & Sweet

I recently read something about sprinkling flavored sea salt on vanilla ice cream. Apparently it is a great combination. I keep hearing about different uses for these flavored salts. Has anyone tried them on ice cream or for any other unique applications?
