Hola, como esta? Mi es muy bien despite the blizzard and state of emergency Maine is in the midst of.
Here is issue #27 of Really Great Things:
I am from St. Louis, which is known for lots of really great things, like the Gateway Arch, Anheiser-Busch, toasted ravioli and gooey butter cake. So, I was quite excited to see this cookie recipe from Pastaria, a restaurant in Clayton, which is a suburb of St. Louis.
I don’t cook a lot of salmon because I only eat wild fish as opposed to farm-raised and I’m usually reluctant to pay the price for wild salmon, which was $20 a pound here, last time I checked. But the next time I cook salmon, I might make it this way.
These are just too…too, there are no words for the cuteness.
Have you ever made your own fondant?
Gingerbread houses always make me think of either Christmas or Halloween. I love the idea of miniature houses for Valentine’s Day.
These are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
I love a frozen coffee. If it has a kick, even better.
I have pigeon-holed certain foods, like sweet potatoes, as only good for desserts and side dishes like sweet potato heaven or roasting and inserting into quesadillas. But this recipe has me changing my thinking.
My two favorite fruits in one delicious cocktail.
I’m not a big video person but sometimes it’s easy to learn a new recipe by watching a video. Learn how to make this tequila specialty drink.
Did your password make this list?
I don’t think I’ve ever told you that one of my favorite pastimes is beachcombing. It’s a great day if I find a sea urchin or two. I generally display sea urchins in glass bowls or on a windowsill. I never thought of doing this.
We’ve been blessed during this blizzard to have not lost power (I’m now knocking on wood). I have a gas stove so I can use my stovetop during a power outage but those of you with electric ranges might be interested in learning how to make something called a rocket stove during a power outage.
Tell me in the comments what your really great things are this week?
