    Thanks for posting this one, rottiedogs. Somehow it caught my eye today. Since I'm a New Englander living in the land of biscuits (coastal GA), proper biscuits are a big deal, so I'm going to have to try these. Now, I have to get some round cookies cutters and a new pastry blender.

    A question for anyone who's made these. Can you use salted butter? And, if so, would you reduce the salt? The reason I ask this is that Harris Teeter carries the most amazing Amish butter (compares favorably to KerryGold and other European butters) but so far it only comes salted and I have a large block in the fridge.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the giggle Italiancook. I find summer.to be a tougher time of year with weight and lack of exercise because it is too d*** hot! I didn't bake anything either,but I thought and read about it.

    Didn't bake anything last week. And I was thinking that I miss Livingwell (Penelope) who also would post when she didn't bake anything. I wonder if she is lurking or knows that Zen set up a private account for her so she could participate there http://bakingcircle.prophpbb.com

    Oh, and this may not be the right place for it but I did hear from Zen who said she hasn't had time to join here. She's been too busy trying to get rid of nicotine on the walls of her new house so she can paint

    I made a double batch of KAF's Black & White Brownies. I rewrote it as a double in my files, because one batch is never enough!

    You know I was going to post because I know I made a couple of interesting things last week, but I was working all weekend and completely forgot what they were. I'll try to be better about remembering 🙂

    A very belated Happy 4th to all. I spent the weekend working since it's one of our busiest weekends. I'm exhausted, but as I tell people, it was my own fault since I volunteered (paid though) to work banquets on the 4th as a cashier. Silly me, I thought that meant sitting down, but as a cashier at the bar, it's standing up (an 8 hour shift) after my morning at work. Large group but nice people and I'm always learning. From our post we could see the fireworks through a sliver of the trees. They were right down the beach from us. I've been very remiss about posting - will write about that over at Zen's site on BakerAunt's post.

    First of all, I wanted to thank all of you for your hard work and efforts to save all this valuable information. I have a few threads and recipes, but I'll wait and fill them in if you missed them. So far, many of the threads I saved have been uploaded.

    As for the recipes Zen saved, I can tell you from experience that they might not all have the original names. In our scramble to save some, we both used the app Paprika which I am very happy with except for the thing I discovered too late - it saves the site information, but it didn't save the information at the top such as who originally submitted the recipe. All it copied were the ingredients and directions, no notes. That's something I'll have to be aware of in the future and I just might contact the developer about that missing piece.

    I think artichokes also go well with spinach. I'm not much help with low carb suggestions, though

    I tried 2 new recipes this week, one successful and one not. The unsuccessful one was for a one pot chicken fajita that my son found - quick and easy to find ingredients. Sadly, it was so bland that we had trouble doctoring it. We ended up with one of those flavorless dishes that had that kickback of heat

    The successful one was for Roasted Cauliflower Sliders - slices of cauliflower roasted with olive oil, s&p, smoked paprika and thyme. Slider buns (I'm sorry to say I had to buy them, but I was pleasantly surprised by PF's Sweet & Soft slider buns), a layer of hummus, a layer of cauliflower, sprouts and a sauce made of yogurt and sriracha. We both enjoyed them a lot and will make them again

    I forgot to post last week that I made a batch of brownies to take as a thank you gift. Put it in the oven and found the flour on the counter. Took it out, scraped the pan, added the flour and put it back in. When they came out, they did not look like my usual brownies, so we did some QC. They tasted like they came from a box. We did not deliver them and I haven't had time to make another batch. But I did make a batch of chocolate chip cookies which were baked on Sunday

    testing a different way of adding photos - it didn't work. I had hoped I could just drag and drop. I just went back over the process and took some screen shots so you can see what's happening. I needed to go back in and edit to get the photo to show up in the thread. Mike, I'm going to send you an email with the screen shots which might help others trying to post.

    I heard from MaryAnn and she said Robin was having trouble getting in here and maybe would contact you. I gave her your email again (written out) and said that some people were having issues do to your extra spam protection.

    Ruth had her puppies 2 weeks ago - 2 red Brindle girls, a red girl and a red boy. Each weighs over 1lb and she's a great mom. They have eye slits and all should be open by Wed. MaryAnn's laptop died, so she's going to send me some pix. Could I then forward them to you, Mike, to get them uploaded?

    Mike, I have that thread in a PDf on my laptop desktop. Just trying to figure out how to edit and post it

    I think Robin is in the Facebook group. I'll ask DLady and let you know. Maybe she could let her group know that there are recipes and threads here.

    I don't know if this is the place, but Randy is shutting down his blog for lack of postings. Sandra Alicante and swirth tried to get some threads going, but . . .

    Banneton, I can't remember if I made this one, but I did make Mrs Cindy's Irish Oatmeal Bread - similar recipes. I saved the thread on her bread and on dachshundlady's Cooking with Oatmeal. Mrs Cindy said using Vital Wheat Gluten was just fineifyou didn't have the KAF Whole Grain Stuff.

    I saved the threads as PDFs and started reading the one - that's how I found out about the VWG. I discovered that I saved them back to front as I had it set up so I could read the newest comments first. Not sure yet how I'm going to edit and condense them for posting here, but I can try to find answers if you need them

    Cindy just texted me and asked me to update you all. A brief explanation - I texted that I had read Nina's post and was sending prayers and healing thoughts but that my iPad had tried to send "healing thighs" Little did I know . . .

    "Well, those healing thighs would have been good to have.

    I developed cellulitis in my left foot/ankle and it shot up the back of the leg into the tendon in my thigh.

    I had a great ER Doctor that 'got' it and set me up with everything I needed to be able to do the antibiotics at home. So, after 6 hours, Rhonda brought me home. I'll get the Vanc delivery tonight sometime and get started on that ASAP.

    So, all's well that ends well! Your healing thoughts and prayers did the trick. See, someone up there was whispering.......thighs.......

    Would you mind posting that you heard from me? I'm home and feeling much better!"
