  1. Evan's is also great. I think Murray's has it.
  2. Entirely by accident, I recently made a soofle from scratch. While nothing can be as fast and easy as the original, this didn't take too much longer. It's an adaptation of the custard-filled cornbread in the 13th edition of the Fannie Farmer: 2 eggs 3 T butter, melted 3 T sugar (I halved this) 1/2 t salt 2 cups milk 1 1/2 T white vinegar 1 cup flour 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal 1 t baking powder 1/2 t baking soda 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup corn (I used fresh off the cob; frozen or canned would work, too - the latter especially to honor the spirit of the soofle) Butter a baking dish
  3. Yeah, the little bastard squirrels are feasting this year. But at least they're leaving the cherries alone.
  4. Darn, I thought this was a thread about the upstate Red Rooster.
  5. We evolved this from the King Arthur Baker's Companion's Classic Buttermilk Waffle recipe. It's very forgiving and works well with any combination of flours or brans (or even wheat germ). This is the combo we like best: 3/4 C all-purpose flour 1/4 C buckwheat flour 1/4 C oat or wheat bran 1/4 C freshly ground flax seeds 1/4 C freshly ground wheat berries (or whole wheat flour) 1/4 C ground pecans 2 t baking powder 1 t baking soda 1 t salt cinnamon to taste (probably 1/2 t); a dash of cardamom, too, if you feel like it 1 3/4 cup buttermilk 2 eggs 1/2 cup melte
  6. Great Indian food at Aroma.
  7. Do we need to be worried about the overnight temperature drop to 45 degrees? We have 23 baby tomato plants in the ground, along with nearly a dozen kales and a half dozen chards.
  8. Thanks, Beh! Unfortunately they're totally booked for the time frame I need, otherwise it would have been perfect.
  9. Thanks, RP! Any current hotel recs for Vienna?
  10. Taking a train from Vienna to Prague, is there any place worth stopping to explore for a day or so?
  11. Agree on a visit to the Grand Hotel. Spisa Hos in Kungsholmen is a very good neighborhood place and easy to get to. Not fine dining, but a sweet little spot for an enjoyable meal. As you may already know, you'll be there during kräftor (crayfish) season.
  12. New brisket prep this year, this one with a coffee and chipotle braise. Smells ridiculously good. We'll see how it comes out. Soup is made. Matzo ball mixture is chilling. Almond cake-like thing is baked and as addictive as ever.
  13. Bobbi Brown or Laura Mercier at Bergdorf's should serve you well. Laura Mercier was my entry to make-up. You might also try FACE Stockholm.
  14. I did this last year for the first time using helpful advice from Rail Paul and GG. Went to Lowe's and bought a set of peat pots and a heat lamp. Planted the seeds in late March and more in early April, stuck everything on our SW-facing windowsill, put the light on a timer for evenings, kept everything moist, and by May we had what we needed to put in the ground.
  15. 46, which is not a surprise to anyone who has ever tried to text me.
