Sugar Cookies

You should be able to find the silver balls in a craft store like Michaels.

Cocoa Powder

I agree with several others on the Hershey's. Throw it away. . For future reference, Trader Joe's Cocoa Powder is the best I've ever tasted.

Try this fabulous cake that uses a lot of cocoa powder. It freezes nicely as well.

I want a soft focaccia bread recipe

Try Emeril's recipe for Caramelized Onion Foccacia on the FN.

Reheating Pizza

Try a quick trip into the microwave just to take the chill off. Follow with the toaster oven directly on the rack to recrisp the crust.

Putting the "In" in "Gin"

I always buy the diet tonic and can't tell the difference.

Best Hangover Food?

A really charred cheeseburger will do the trick.

Cooking Classes

I would rent the kitchen and students will pay directly. I also have liability insurance. I'm guessing the students are required to bring their own knives?

Cook the Book: Nigella Express

Move faster in the kitchen. Making cooking into a race or a game always saves me time.

Urgent! Recs for wine pairing with ham...

Try Rioja (gran reserva) with ham. Pinot Noir will work as well.

Serious cocktails.

I must have Pallini Limoncello in the freezer. It's great straight, on the rocks with sparkling water or in a vodka martini.

What is the Baking and Pastry Bible?

I'm going to have to go with Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. I took it out from the library to see if it was worthwhile and had to go buy a copy.
