If you want a good, basic book for today's cooking, Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything" is one of the best.

Right on, bluefrue, I also feel like going back to bed after a breakfast of white carbs! Yow - not for me!
2713  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: How to make some advertising.. on: November 03, 2005 08:37:14 AM
I'm an advocate of local first, world second. That means direct traffic to your site by being a local businessperson - that is, if you're serious about having your own business. Having a website "out there" is never enough to get sales.

Try contacting some compatible local shops you're interested in to sell your stuff; join local business orgs to push your wares; have your friends and family and everyone you know talk you up. Give them some business cards to hand out to people. Write a press release and send it out to various local papers. If you have any local craft shops maybe they'd be interested in a class.

With limited time this year I'm making miniature cakes, 1 chocolate, 1 orange, 1 gingerbread, and containers of soup, 3 different kinds.

What's your budget? I find many things are determined by budget.

The first thing that struck me about the website is that there was no phone number to be found. If there was a phone number posted, it's not easy to find. I wouldn't do business with anyone who is afraid to be called, particularly if I want to spend money with them. No phone, no business.

Email is the easiest way to avoid people.
2717  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Your Chicken Soup Recipe on: October 29, 2005 04:55:38 AM
I like to use 3 parts chicken broth and 1 part beef or veggie broth, plus a drizzle of white wine; tarragon, thyme, marjoram, garlic. I use frozen chicken - yes, frozen, just stick it in the soup all frozen - comes out amazingly tender!

I also like the standard mix of parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Rosemary is so heavenly with chicken. Or vice versa.

Cut a pocket in the chicken; stuff with a mix of 2 Tbl chopped spinach, a pinch of crushed rosemary and 1/2 tsp of soy margarine; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Saute/med heat in a sprayed pan (or use tsp oil) for 4-5 mins each side or slap 'er on a Foreman for 3 minutes. Delish! Serve with a salad

Saute (sprayed pan or a tsp oil over medium heat) some onions, peppers, thyme, and some basil or oregano, garlic until slightly wilted. Salt and pepper the chicken, add to pan, shoving the veg aside. 4-5 mins each side. Remove chicken and add 1/4 cup veg or chicken broth and 2 Tbl balsamic vinegar; scrape up the bits, reduce a bit, and pour over chicken. Yum! Squash is a good side to go with the vinegar sauce.

Cut the chicken into strips and rub with a mixture of 1/4 tsp each of turmeric, paprika, coriander, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper (cayenne if you like). Heat about 2 tsp oil in a pan over medium, and cook your chicken. Serve with plain yoghurt mixed with the same spices, plus some chopped cucumber, tomato, and shredded carrot.
2719  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Halloween party finger foods? on: October 29, 2005 04:34:10 AM
bloody fingers: take some biscuit dough and shape it into a finger, stick in a sliced almond for the fingernail, and drip some red food coloring around the fingernail.
2720  COOKING / Dessert / Re: The best cookie for Halloween - the chocolate crackle cookie - check it out! on: October 29, 2005 04:32:02 AM
These are slightly crispy, but chewy and very chocolately. Good at ANY time of year, but traditionally they come out at Christmas time.
