Thanks to my new favorite cookbook I have cooked tons of cool stuff this week. Well, as cool as tortillas are.
So far we've made:
  • Baked apples
  • Tomato & Basil Salad
  • Tortillas
  • Whole wheat bread
  • Soda bread
  • Strawberry smoothies
  • Cheesecake

I have the ingredients to try my hand at yogurt and cream cheese. Can you tell I've read through the flour and dairy chapters? One of my favorite things about this books is that you don't need equipment. No food processors or anything like that.

In our CSA basket yesterday we received leeks, apples, tomatoes (just a few), various hot peppers, and grapes. Grapes! I've got to find a jelly recipe or something. I've also got to figure out how to pit them. If you know anything about grapes, grape recipes, or jellies please let me know.

Oh to be retired so I could knit and cook all day...

Okay, now I really need to go find this book! Wish I knew something about grapes!

This cookbook sounds just perfect, I'm always looking for books that are really user-friendly. Mmm, and fresh tortillas sound amazing. :)

I don't really know, but I think when you make grape jelly, you strain out he seeds after it's cooked.

Yum! Where's mine? Your making me hungry!
For the grapes you have to cook it first and then strain out the seeds.
