Cook the Book: Lasagna with Roasted Cauliflower Ricotta and Spinach

Thinking about trying this one out on a vegetarian friend who also likes to eat vegan if she can. It seems a little light so i was thinking about adding some thinly sliced eggplant. Also was wondering if it would dry out if i made it earlier in the day and reheated at dinner time. I know regular lasagna comes out better this way, was a little worried about the faux ricotta drying out. Any tips?

Pizza Dough

Thanks for the responses everyone. I ended up using a ratio of 1 cup of AP flour to 5.5 cups of bread flour. (I ran out of AP and was too lazy to go back to the store).

It turned out great and i think i will be using bread flour going forward, I like the bit of chew i got using it and the crunch was still there. (Using a pizza stone)

Cook the Book: 'L.A.'s Original Farmers Market Cookbook'

I can not think of just one, my memories of farmers markets go way back. Summers on the north fork of Long Island and all that fresh food and fruit. Who doesn't live summer?
