1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Buttercrunch cookies and hagelslag - what do you miss? on: November 04, 2005 09:02:46 AM
I grew up on Long Island, in NY, and I live in Boston now, and I've traveled a whole bunch.

When I'm in Boston, I miss a lot of food from NY.  Real NY bagels are the first to come to mind.  Good Jewish deli (hot pistrami on rye with a broccoli round knish--they don't know from that in Boston).  And genuine, Italian pizza shops.  And quality Chinese food buffets.  There were so many wonderful ones on Long Island.

When I'm in NY, I miss ice cream.  Boston and New England have tons of family-owned ice cream stands with handmade ice cream.  I love that every town pretty much has their own ice cream stand, and that they're all so different.

From when I went to Israel, I miss strawberry banana nectars that came in a can that I could get in vending machines.  Oh, and Elite candy.  Their taffy was incredible.  Ooooh.  And white chocolate Magnum bars.  I still dream about those sometimes.

From The Netherlands, where I lived for four months, I miss readily available Quorn (it's harder to find in the US--hasn't really become popular here yet).
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Beaded Ornaments? on: October 31, 2005 02:00:51 PM
Hi everyone:

I'm looking for a tutorial on beaded ornaments.  I want to make the kind where there is a beaded netting that goes over a plain round ball.  I would like the kind that completely encloses it, versus just hanging over it like a shawl.  The ones I have seen tend to have a little circle at the bottom where the beads join.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?  Does anyone know where I can find instructions on how to do this?  My fiance and I are going to have our first tree this year, so I want to make some of these for it.

Thank you!

Here's my favorite holiday (or any time) cookie.  They are Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Mmmmmm.

3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then stir in vanilla and peppermint extracts. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Hey everyone--

I know it's not even Halloween yet, but I have holiday baking on the mind.  I'm kind of low on cash this year, so I was thinking that I would make some wonderful cookie trays/baskets for people this year.  I want to start making small batches now, so that I know that what I'm giving for gifts are good.  Smiley

What are your favorite holiday cookie recipes?  Let's start collecting them here.  I'll post one or two in a few minutes.

I wish you could smell through the computer!  I'm sure that would make your post 1000 times better.  Smiley They look really pretty, though.  On a completely off-topic note, the fabric you used as your background is part of my very favorite skirt that I made myself. 
Happy Crafting!

This is my favorite Apple Pie recipe, too.  I used it last year.  Enjoy the pie.  Happy Rosh Hashannah. 
My profile doesn't say "in progress" on it.  Thanks!
