  4. What are you cooking today?

    Once upon a time, not so very long ago, there was a shortage of peanut butter in this country.   Now it seems there is a shortage of yeast. Yes, yeast. Neither fresh nor dry to be found in all the 5+ stores that I've visited this past week. Odd. Have written to Dr. Oetker, am awaiting a reply.   Not to worry, though, as this is sourdough week for me.   I seem to remember someonce once missing Marmite, and saying that the little jars here are so expensive. So, though I've forgotten who said that, here's something (for all Marmite lovers) that I ran across while researching rye breads:   https://www.greatbritishchefs.com/recipes/homemade-marmite-recipe   In case one has nothing else to do this week. Enjoy.

  7. What are you cooking today?

    Just a small chuckle for today:  from a famous author whose emails pass by my desk. She's making fried mozzarella sandwiches, and the recipe starts:   "Make sandwiches out of the bread and mozzarella, leaving a little margin around the edges unfilled with cheese, and press the edges together with your fingers to help seal. (One of the advantages of plastic bread is that it is easily wodged together.)"   ("plastic bread" meaning Toastbrot)

  11. Coffee or Tea?

    Drink maté (pronounced "mah-tay"). You can buy it either green or roasted. It contains matteine (NOT caffeine), which will give you the boost that you are looking for, without the drop that comes from the caffeine spike. You can buy the supermarket quality in any of the Turkish stores, or go to a real tea shop for a better quality. You can drink it like tea/coffee - pure, with sugar/milk/lemon, or can mix it with spices like ginger and cinnamon. It's only a leaf, after all.
