  1. "Booscotti" Apple pie with oatmeal crumble topping
  2. No and I don't think you'd need to since the water comes in and washes the egg out with it. That reminds me that I also tried the Saran wrap method. The first time I didn't spray the plastic and the egg got stuck. The second time I did spray, but the method was too much trouble. I think that knowing which pan works best, how much vinegar to add and just the right low simmer is the KISS for me.
  3. Last Easter, so not that old! Ham freezes beautifully with the vacuum sealer. No pic today
  4. ^ Looks amazing! I poached eggs this morning and I add vinegar to the water then crack each egg into a ramekin that gets lowered into the water, allowing the water to come in and gently wash the egg into the water. Worked nicely-- I tend to get feathery eggs, but these were really solid. Served Benedict style with last year's Easter ham leftovers and bernaise sauce.
  5. Salad with campari tomatoes Braised Lambs Quarter chuck roast Smashed rosemary potatoes Miso Maple roasted brussel sprouts
  6. Oven roasted pork loin that had been marinating in lemon zest & juice, pommery mustard, rosemary, garlic & evoo. Squash and zucchini gratin Puree of cauliflower Mint chocolate chip ice cream.
  7. Egg casserole with bell peppers, onions, broccoli, lots of cheddar. Rosemary potatoes. Turkey sausage.
  8. ^ Isn't the technique to grill one side, flip and quickly top-> cook?
  9. I think there are many delicious sauce recipes out there and I'd suggest you give the simplest tomato recipe a try. Drain a can of San Marzano tomatoes into a colander, pressing out excess liquid. Break tomatoes up by hand and spread on dough. Sprinkle kosher salt and continue with cheese, herbs, evoo and more s+p. For homemade "jarred" pizza sauce, I use puree for my tomato product, Italian seasoning, chili flakes, garlic granules, onion powder, s+p, cooked down until thickened. Extra dried oregano on top after baking. eta: a little pinch of sugar in the homemade sauce.
  10. Sungold and sun dried tomato soup with Parmesan, basil cream and smoked garlic bread croutons. Salad Leftover potato, leek and onion tart. Apple pie tart with oatmeal crumble topping and caramel sauce.
  11. ^ Welcome and really looking forward to your insider perspective and experiences in general!
