Handy Baking Tip

When you run out of brown sugar (perhaps because the dog caused you to lose your balance and spill the whole damned container on the floor), you can substitute white sugar plus 1 Tbsp molasses for light brown, 2 Tbsp for dark brown. Still fine-tuning our apple streusel muffin recipe before Christmas breakfast tomorrow.  Watch … Continue reading »

Kippers, Revisited

Breakfast discovery: Trader Joe’s kippers.  We’ve eaten–and enjoyed–Crown Prince for ages, but we think we’ll be switching to TJ’s.  A little less salty than Crown Prince (not a bad thing), and considerably more smoke flavor (a very good thing!). Do note that the cans are more than twice as big, so it’s either a big … Continue reading »
