Recipes from a Napa Winery">Recipes from a Napa Winery
I stumbled into this site on a web search. I've never heard of Robert Sinskey Vineyards, but their recipes (at least the pix and the descriptions) intrigue. They seem very carefully developed: http://www.robertsinskey.com/kitchen/eat-drink Weird navigation; you need to click "All Courses" in the side bar or else you mostly see mushroomy...Read more
Is this Turkey done?">Is this Turkey done?
Temped at 165 and above everywhere, but when we cut it open there was some redness deep in the breast and in the thigh and the juices were definitely pink. No one got sick. Was there a risk? jb Reading More May Cause Envy...Read more
Recipe hunt: "10# nut cake w/ coconut"">Recipe hunt: "10# nut cake w/ coconut"
Unfortunately, that's about all I know about the cake: multi-layered, various kinds of nuts (don't know which variety), dark batter alternating layers w/ a light color batter (don't know flavors).

I made the cranberry topping from this recipe, and used some of it on a different dessert*: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Vanilla-Bean-Cheesecake-with-Cranberry-Jewel-Topping-2618 If you want to skip the link, it's roughly a 6:2:1 ratio of cranberries:sugar:water (assuming frozen cranberry cocktail is mostly sugar+water), boiled for 3 minutes. I've got about a...Read more

I need a fantastic lemon cake recipe.">I need a fantastic lemon cake recipe.
Old thread, I know, but I made this cake for Thanksgiving and wanted to report back. I think it came out pretty well but my husband adores it and can't seem to stop eating it. A few comments from me: a) the 35 minutes for the cake layers...Read more
Best Pecan Pie Recipe?">Best Pecan Pie Recipe?
I realize this is an old thread but I made this pecan pie for Thanksgiving and it was so easy and so, so delicious. I did use a food processor for the crust but other than that followed the recipe exactly. I would make again in a heartbeat....Read more
Freezing Stuffing?">Freezing Stuffing?
what about stuffing that was prepared but never cooked ? should I bake it FIRST and then freeze it when cold? or can I just wet it with the broth and freeze it in the bags, as you said ? Reading More May Cause Envy...Read more
Need a "lamb curry" recipe">Need a "lamb curry" recipe
I know that curry means sauce and there are thousands of them. But in the US, evidently, if you go to an Indian restaurant and ask for lamb curry they all tend to give you a similar dish. Does anyone know this default dish? I've made at least 6 different versions...Read more
