I wanted to share with you this amazing recipe I found on PANNA, the video cooking magazine.

Caramelized Cauliflower with Hazelnuts, Parmesan and Sage
by Anita Lo

1 Head - Cauliflower
3 T. - Unsalted Butter
1 T. - Sugar
1/2 tsp. - Lemon Juice, or more to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
3 Leaves, sliced - Sage
1 T. - Salted and Roasted Hazelnuts, roughly chopped
Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

Remove the green outer leaves and cut the cauliflower into 1/2-inch (1.25cm) thick slices to create cross sections. Remove any parts of the fibrous core of the cauliflower that remains.

Transfer the slices to a large, straight-sided skillet and cover with cold water halfway up the sides of the cauliflower, about 1/4-inch (6mm) deep. Add the butter, sugar, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Cook over high heat until the water evaporates and the cauliflower is golden brown on one side, 10 to 12 minutes. After the cauliflower begins to caramelize, reduce the heat to low.

Pick and slice the sage leaves.

Once the cauliflower is deeply browned and the sugar has caramelized, rotate the slices to promote even browning. After a few moments, flip the cauliflower to cook the other side, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with sage, hazelnuts and freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Posting Pictures

This thread will describe how to post pictures from a photohosting site, from a PDF file, or from some other location on the web.

First, though, where are your pictures? If they are on your computer only, you will need to upload them to somewhere on the web for the rest of us to see them. I upload pictures to PhotoBucket, but there are other photo-hosting sites available. For example: Picasa, Filckr, Webshots, Snapfish.

  1. Open an account w/PhotoBucket or other photo hosting site.
  2. Take a picture using a digital camera (or film camera, but get your pictures on a disk when they're developed & download them to your computer)
  3. Resize your pictures so they're not too big, generally no more than 400x300 (or 300x400)

    Resize keeping the same proportions so they don't get distorted...i.e., don't specify a specific size, use %-ages or similar

    [You can also often resize pictures at your photohosting site, but it's faster to do it on your computer]

  4. Upload your pictures to your photo account
  5. Find the label that contains the HTML Code link to the picture and copy it
  6. Paste it into the thread's "Message" box (< Ctrl >< V>)
  7. Click the "Preview" button.
  8. You will now see the picture.

RE: invisible screens (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: lynninnewmexico on 08.30.2011 at 09:23 pm in Home Decorating Forum

We just had a Phantom Screen door installed last week in our MBR. It's one of those so-called invisible screen doors that unreels from the side of the door frame and then reels back in when not needed. We looked at several different kinds, but ended up going with the more durable (and expensive) one from Phantom Screens. We found the display at our local Lowes store.

This is for a glass patio door that opens inward between our MBR and our small walled-in garden patio. So far, I love it, but it does take some getting used to. It fastens in 2 or 3 places with VERY strong magnets. To open it, I need to hold the handle securely and tug sideways a bit. If I let go, it instantly snap-rolls into it's casing in the door frame. It won't break if this happens, but the installers told me that for longevity, it's better not to let it snap back in quickly.

These screens are sold through companies like Lowes by locally owned concessions. The price of the door includes the installation. There was no option to install it ourselves. After watching them install ours,though, I'm glad they did it and not us!

It's only been a week, but I'm really glad we got ours. It makes for better cross-ventilation in our bedroom and also allows us to hear the fountain in the garden.

Our doberman has recognized it from the start as a scrren door, and doesn't even lean against it. Good boy, Ronin!
The screen door, BTW, cost $430. That's a LOT of money for a screen door, but because of the location of the door itself on the wall, taht the door opens into the room instead of out, and the custom size needed (a bit smaller than average), it was the best option for us. Given other circumstances, though, I'd save my money and go with a regular, simple, full screen door.

That kitchen is extremely cute, and just shouts "Mom!" :-)

You can cove sheet marmoleum, too. My mother is also particular about her coved Congoleum for the ease of sweeping.

Coved Marmoleum with a border, perhaps?
