Cookbook and Go To Recipe(s)

posted by: oldbat2be on 04.06.2014 at 10:35 am in Kitchens Forum

I find that with many of my cookbooks, I cook the same recipe again and again. I'd like to find other tried and true recipes, recipes you've made at least say 5 times and hoepfully closer to 50.

Please post the cook book name and recipe(s) you make regularly, the recipes which are worth 'buying the book' for. Hopefully others will already have the book(s) and will be tempted to try the recipes.

The Top 100 Pasta Sauces (Diane Seed) - Tagliatelle or Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce - this is my go to tomato sauce.

The Cake Bible - (Rose Levy Beranbaum). Perfect All-American Chocolate Butter Cake (uber quick), White Spice Pound Cake.

Baking with Julia (Dorie Greenspan) - Baking Powder Biscuits. What's wonderful about these is you can turn the oven on, and by the time it reaches the correct temperature, you have the biscuits ready to go into the oven and everything cleaned up.

A Matter of Taste (Junior League of Morristown NJ) - lots in here. Sesame Chicken with Honey Dip. Hot Mushroom Turnovers. Citrus Cup cocktail is quite good but I've only made 2-3 times. Macadamia Fudge cake and Chocoholics Dream are both wonderful. My notes on them respectively: 'Easy, Quick, Excellent; small but incredibly rich. Leaves you wanting another taste/piece' and 'Wonderfully rich - excellent and easy and quick! Can make up to a week ahead'.

Will Adjustable Drawer Divider be useful?

posted by: khallock on 03.15.2013 at 11:31 am in Kitchens Forum

I am having 2 sets of Pot & Pan drawers. They will be 2-drawer stacks. I didnt want the skinny top drawer since they cuts down on the depth of the lower drawers.

I was going to have an adjustable drawer divider installed on 1 of the drawers. My thinking was for some plastic cutting boards, muffin pans, baking pans, etc...

Does anyone know if items like this will fit in here? Stupid me didnt measure my pans at home to figure this out first and I am ordering this afternoon after work. Its only a $45 mistake if my pans dont fit.

Builder Rebate on first time builders use of Zip Wall Systems and Advantech flooring ... $3 per sheet

And just for an FYI ... LP TechShield (radiant barrier) as well as TopNotch 350, and FlameBlock all have rebates from $1.50 - $3.00 per sheet.

And, you can get 2 squares of the Typar brand roof underlayment for FREE !! - You can also get free marketing/advertising brochures and stuff from them about their house wrap ...
