  1. The recipe I used called for topping with club soda which diluted it.
  2. I should note that spouse was reluctant to try cuz it was "pink"
  3. Baroness Collins. Lovely, but seasonably inappropriate. Something to think of on a hot steamy day.
  4. Boy is playing video games with one of his besties via Face-time. It's so funny to listen them. I feel like I'm getting a peak into his world.
  5. Sicilian Negroni. Equal parts gin, Campari (or in this case Luxardo Bitter Rosso) and freshly squeezed Blood Orange juice.
  6. It tastes good. It's just dense - doesn't have the big air holes. It was strange - I tried shaping it and just slumped into itself. What am I doing wrong? Want to try and diagnose?
  7. I give up. This is a disaster. I have no idea what I did, but I let it rise, and when I tried to shape it it turned into a blobby mess. I suck.
  8. I've decided to attempt the loaf AGAIN!!! And yes, I added the salt. As much as I love bread, there's no way I"m going through about 7 pounds of bread flour between now and Passover.
  9. I thought she was referring to this - https://www.highsnobiety.com/p/birkenstock-hermes-birkin-sandal-bootleg/
  10. Who was it who recommended Ted Lasso? I was doubtful after episode 1 but really glad I stuck with it.
  11. About 20 years ago I called Ossie's Fish looking for sushi-quality tuna and they scoffed at me saying "What do you mean sushi-quality tuna? Tuna's tuna."
  12. Sourdough on Shabbat? Inside the City’s Kosher Food Revolution I'm not sure what's worse - the article or the fact that all these fucking millennials seem to think they're on to something new.
  13. So interesting. It wasn't behind a paywall earlier, which is why I was able to access it. But now it is.
  14. Wall Street Journal weighs in on the kosher Q scene.
  15. Dammit, now you have me thinking I should make Persian food for dinner tonight.
  16. I don't think it has to do with neighborhood because I get it as well. We would get bombarded with it at a former job. 10 - 15 messages left on voice mail a day. After the first couple of times I figured out how to identify the phone numbers so I didn't bother picking up.
  17. Have you read Dirt by Bill Buford? There's a great description in it about making Poulet en Vessie.
  18. Hamentaschen. Gingerbread with either apricot or prune. Chocolate with halvah cream and a sprinkle of Desert Rose spice blend from La Boîte.
  19. Dr. Frankenstein from Sneak's latest newsletter. Went well with my pastrami burger.
  20. Pastrami Burgers, with the leftover pastrami from last night.
  21. My guess is they’re doing the smoking in Brooklyn. But I’m not sure. Yesterday was day 2 of business. I normally wouldn’t go anywhere so early on, but I walked by and they weren’t slammed so I figured I’d stop in. I also picked up their smoked fried chicken sandwich which was very messy to eat -the bun disintegrated.
  22. Ward Eight. Last time I had one of these was at the Flatiron Lounge. A long, long time ago.
  23. I don’t want to tell you how good that chunk of fat was. The flavor was smokey, savory, salty.
  24. Izzy’s has opened. Look at this luscious smoked pastrami.
