    Whipped up the bread last night (as muffins since that is easier for me). I expected the water/apricot mix to be more jam-like, but it was really just softened fruit with a bit of water. These were...

    I have had success with freezing lemon halves after they have been juiced. When I just froze the zest, it dried out. I do not thaw the lemon halves, but just grate the zest into my recipe. I always...

    I love going into stores like Sur la Table or Williams and Sonoma and staring at their food sections--all of it is too expensive or impractical for me to buy for myself, but if someone gave any of...

    Hmmm, interesting. I shouldn't say this because I am dooming myself, but I've only had to strain a pudding/curd/custard once. I do pretty good with tempering. Good luck if you go the stove route!

    I loved both of these recipes!

    Chicken Puttanesca Sunset 8/10
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 boned, skinned chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

    I've always made it on the stovetop. Pretty easy. Never heard you could make it in the microwave before!

    I do--I found a blog post about these potatoes and that cook used what she had on hand. The recipe says that it might separate, but hers didn't.

    How do you know, Cookieee? I used the Google search of the CLBB, but it appears the first thing I posted was a knife question. I was looking to buy my first chef's knife--still have it, still love it.

    These were rich and good, but I don't think they will replace my standard recipe. Not sure of the size of my processor's slicing blade, but I felt the slices were a little too thin. While still...

    I love this recipe! I use 1 1/2 c green beans, 1/2 c chunked onion, and 1/2 c quartered mushrooms. The only problem is that I can sometimes eat half this recipe myself!

    This pureed soup is probably one of my top ten recipes of 2014. I left out the cream (only 2tbsp) and it freezes well. I used my immersion blender to puree.

    I've bought currants at Whole Foods. They are dried like raisins, but smaller and not as sweet or toothsome.

    Here's the one I was going to try last weekend, but I ran out of time. Still hope to get to it. Similar to PW's, but more mushroom focused.

    I ended up with only 3 of us for dinner, but this was a big hit. The ladies all had second helpings so you know it was good. I, of course, would change things the next time, but this was pretty tasty!

    Cookieee, sounds interesting. I've run across several recipes with cooked cucumbers, but have never tried any of them. I am out of commission this week, too, but hope to be back next week.
