I love the Springerle boards. They are beautiful works of art!

Do you knead bread in a mixer for the same length as by hand?

Thanks for the information. I guess I should have read the instructions with my mixer but I stink at reading directions! My bread did turn out great though!

Sausage gravy or when I'm not in the mood to make that...just butter and honey!

How many do you have, and what spices can you not be without?

A bunch...I love! I cannot live without smoked is my all time favorite for just about anything savory! I have two different types of cinnamon now and can't believe that there is such a difference between something like that.

Thanks for the advice...I think I will make a batch soon and stuff something yummy in them!

Sweet Technique: How to Make Pâte à Choux

I've made these before with great success but I need suggestions for making them in advance. I made them for a bridal shower I was giving and made them a couple of days ahead. I stored them in plastic storage containers and when I went to get them out to stuff them, they had fuzzy mold! I only made them two days ahead and they were thoroughly cool when I put them in the container. I wasn't really happy about the last minute change...any ideas about what I can do next time?

Easter in Rome

I'm going to be in Rome for a few days around Easter. Does anyone have suggestions for restaurants? I'm also going to be in Venice, Florence, and Sorrento. Any suggestions for those cities would also be appreciated!
