Any comments, questions, suggestions, or thoughts, this is the place. Have a good week, Everyone.
Good Evening, Doristas & Trevor, We’ve just had a Text from the North Pole that Santa Claus and Mrs. Santa Claus want to choose our December recipes. Both Betsy and I gave the Elves our approval about this idea. Betsy is awaiting North Pole notification of the Claus’ choices and will post as soon as […]
From both Liz’s and Mardi’s posts on Facebook, this looks like a challenging week. I hope Mardi and Liz will re-post their suggestions here so those of us who do not belong to Facebook can read also. Anyone with suggestions, questions, or advice, please do so here. For those of you enduring the cold, snowy, […]
Sooooo, I already have a problem. No kumquats. Per Kathy, I will try to look for preserved kumquats. However, we have a huge snowstorm coming in today so I might not be able to get to Whole Foods and more exotic speciality food stores down valley. Any suggestions for a substitution? If any of you […]
Since we’ve rallied around the Jerusalem Artichoke last month, maybe you won’t have any problems, questions, concerns, observations or technique clues. But, if you do, just leave your comments here. Have a good week everyone.
I needed to make a special-order with Whole Foods to get my Osso Buco this week. And, I also needed to be reminded to get a P&Q up for this week’s recipe choice. (Sorry, Mardi) Any problems, concerns, questions, advice, treasured techniques to try, just leave it all here.
Good Morning FFWD Colleagues, Betsy and I were told about this change of plans about 3 weeks ago but were asked not to say anything to anyone until the announcement was made by Laurie and Dorie. We are very disappointed, of course, but support Dorie in whatever she chooses to do. Please get your arms […]
Hi Everyone, Betsy and I are pleased to tell you that Liz Berg and Susan Lester are going to head up the October 24th Recipe Choice/Activities. We know they will sink the Sweet Tooths into something wonderful and special. Just know that they are quietly working behind the scenes. We will be in touch […]
This week we’re the Ladies of the Lentils brigade. Hopefully you’ll all find these little green darlings in your local grocery story. Let’s just say this week is ea$ier on the pocketbook (Do we even have pocketbooks anymore?) than the chanterelles. If you have anything to say, here’s the place. Have a good week.
Hello Everyone, It’s Tuesday and I finally located chanterelles. Are you having any luck? Substitutions? Suggestions? Ideas? Whatever you have to say about this fungus that smells like apricots, leave it here. Medical Alert: If you gathered your fungus from the Wilds, please be sure none are poisonous. There are look-alikes out there.
