  1. Maida Heatter's Cheesecake brownies. Almost all of my baking these days is by gram so going back to using volume is an adjustment (especially when my 1/4 cup measure is missing and the recipe calls for 3/4 cup sugar, which is 150 grams).

    Greenmarket supper last night - Penne tossed with ramps and asparagus. Dressed with runny egg.
  3. I just bought a Lodge 2 sided griddle. Here's my question - how do I season the darned thing? Do I do one side at at time? Or is there a way to do both sides simultaneously?
  4. I am washing so many fucking dishes, it's ridiculous. (and this is with a dishwasher) Every time I look, there are more dishes that need to be washed.
  5. And why, exactly, is this a problem?
  6. Rick Bishop still has ramps! Bought them and asparagus (as well as some lettuce). Looking forward to having them with pasta on Tuesday night.

    Photos like Voyager's is why I will never, ever share photos of my suppers.
  8. I don't want to tell you how many half sheet pans I have. And then I discovered two brand new ones at the top of a closet the other week. I have a sickness.
  9. This is what I buy. I think it's the cheapest pan I own.
  10. I buy the pompelmo just for this purpose. I get very cranky when the spouse drinks it WITHOUT tequila. Speaking of which, I need to buy more tequila. I think I have about 2 ounces left. And I said kaddish over a bottle of Aviation Gin on Sunday night (mind you, I have plenty of other bottles of gin). I feel a order coming on.
  11. Use in place of oil for roasting potatoes. And, although it's not the season - instead of butter in matzoh brei.
  12. I do love a Paloma - tequila, lime juice and San Pellegrino Pompelmo. Went perfectly with the the pizza we ordered.
  13. Visiting grandma in the time of the virus... she sat on the deck and we sat on the lawn. We brought our own food and utensils. Never the twain shall meet. We hadn't seen her in person since February and there's only so much Facetime you can do. On plus side, it was a gorgeous day to be outside and we had an opportunity to play some soccer in the yard. And there was absolutely no traffic at the entrance to the Holland Tunnel!
  14. He was so funny and made everything he was in better. He was the "secret sauce"
