Mine too, one with gas and another with electricity. I like to have this "island" idea that one cooks in the middle not facing the wall.

Don't forget the grill!

How many days have I hoofed it through snow and rain, etc., to the BBQ in the garage.

I'm not complaining...I'm just saying that an indoor grill would be.... heaven.

A butter rum caramel crepe cake was featured in Diners and Dive. I've been craving it ever since. I googled the recipe but nothing comes close. Lizaird or Andromeda if you are reading I would love some help. Thank you!

Hey Artemismoon! I'm just finding this now.

I'm sorry I've never heard of a rum caramel crepe cake. I Googled, too, and found this:

No doubt you came across it yourself in your search.

How did the lasagna turn out?

yelenav was looking for something to snack on... these usually accompany my cheese platters but "will do" on their own.:0)

Spiced Nuts

4 cups mixed nuts (walnuts, pecans, cashew, pistachio)
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp celery salt
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp light muscovado sugar or soft light brown sugar
3 sprigs rosemary, finely chopped to make 3 tsp plus 2 sprigs for garnish
sprinkle of salt

In large pan on medium heat, toss mixed nuts for 3 minutes until lightly toasted. Add garam masala, celery salt and rosemary. Toss until evenly coated. Add oil and sugar. When nuts have darkened a little and are slick, turn them out onto parchment paper and sprinkle with salt to taste.

Bliss, I found the above nut recipe in a Christmas recipe book. But they are yummy any time. Personally, I like them on a cheese platter because they have a unique taste that goes well with (any) cheese.

If you skim the earlier part of this thread you will find all sorts of "holiday" recipes. Lizaird was awesome to post/share her dessert recipes. I shared a couple of Christmas cookie recipes, i.e., "Gun Powder" cookies which adults love (there is cayenne and black pepper in them), and my basic shortbread cookie recipe.

If you're looking for a H'ween idea, every year I take latex/powder free gloves (you can buy a box of them for $8 at Wal-mart) and fill them with candy and chocolate from the Bulk Barn. I twist tie the "wrist" with red and white lace and twist tie "spider rings" (sparkly spiders in various colours) from the Dollar Store to each hand. Lots of people fill them with popcorn, but I go all out and "splurge" on candy and chocolate. One year I even glued false nails on the finger tips, LOL... That's a lot of work. But you can buy the large candy corn to fill the tips instead. Then I place them on a large "silver" platter (which I bought from the Dollar Store) and put them on the buffet table for the kids. You can also fill latex gloves with water (and red food colouring) and then freeze them for the punch bowl, instead of regular ice cubes.

:0)

This year I got my hands on some black bow tie pasta. So I will be bringing a black pasta salad to my friend's pre-trick or treat dinner party.:0) The red pepper and olives will add that "je ne sais quoi" to the visual.

Andromeda, good to hear from you. I've been absorbed - experiencing turbulence.

Lasagna tasted great. Still having trouble with presentation. My lasagna looks messy. Tried baking beef pie again. This time I purchased frozen pie crust. Somehow, my beef filling doesn't taste the same as the first time. It's always hit and miss with me, but the good thing is not too many of my friends and family have time to cook and bake so they love everything I make. I have a princess party next month.

Have a good weekend ladies.

Yes Yelena I tasted your honey pepper vodka... "terribly good"...LOL
I mean: Really, it is strange but good.

Reminds me of an old anti-flu drink from Catholic Nuns from Poland:

* Hot milk (yuck..)... I guess hot water would do
* vodka or rum
* fresh garlic, honey, pepper

Pretty much like your honey pepper vodka but add garlic and drink it hot.

I have to dissapoint you - it has to be hot milk. And they were mild to you - it could be with botter and soda.( You see, I know a lot about tortures)

Hey Artemismoon!

I'm sure your pies taste delicious.

Re your crust: Sometimes my approach to problems is to just do things differently with surprisingly good results. Are they individual/single serving pies you're making? If so, instead of pie crust, why not switch to a foil ramekin and use "puff pastry" for the top and skip the bottom crust entirely - like you would for a chicken pot pie?

On a personal note, I tried the Crisco pastry recipe for a peach pie I made a little while ago and it was *tough*. I prefer my Tenderflake recipe I posted earlier. It's tender and flakey, just like it's name.

Lasagna: when you say messy is it because it doesn't hold it's form after you cut it? It could be that your sauce is too runny or that you don't have any cheese between your layers. I sprinkle a little mozzarella cheese on my meat sauce before I begin my next layer. It helps each piece to hold it's form after I serve it.

Sorry to hear about the turbulence. Here's looking to a quieter fall.

Hey Lizaird!

I found some quick bread recipes, but as it is, right now I'm just going without assorted flours, yeasts, etc. It's kind of like people eating chocolates made with sorbitol thinking that it is okay or people on Weight Watchers eating their prepackaged single serving chocolates thinking that because it's Weight Watchers' chocolate, it's okay, i.e., the food doesn't have a negative impact on their regime.

Depressing as it is, chocolate is chocolate any way you package it, as is baked goods any way you bake it. So I'm just skipping it all together.

Thanks, though!
