We Are BACK!

That was a great vacation from blogging....
O.k. folks time to get back to the Kitchen....!!!!!!!!

But first....
we have quite a few frustrated recipe submitters and I apologize for the delay in getting them up. Will do the best I can over the next couple of weeks to cover them all.

But first is first...

Remember the post on Truly Useless Kitchen Gadgets For The Chef Who Has Everything well quite a few people disagree with me..which is of course GREAT! One wrote a letter and did not leave a comment, but here it is....

Just wanted to comment on this not-so-useless device. If you do a lot of canning, you would like to have a sturdy jar lifter. After you have processed your preserves in boiling water for 15 minutes, you grab the wooden handles and put the red rubber curved ends under the boiling water around the neck of the finished jars and lift them out. this allows you to process the next batch without waiting for the water to cool enough to take out the first batch. Your picture is upside down.

Well this just goes to show you that one person's useless device is Gold for another. And that is a good thing...

So I apologize if I offended anyone with the useless devices in the kitchen, and if you think they are important then by all means... GO FOR IT!!

Well Passover is upon us in a few days, so I got to go clean...UGH!

But I will be posting recipes almost daily...so enjoy...and Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen is back..back..back!

I have just stumbled upon your blog. I love the clean design and fantastic photos. I am a blogger myself and always thought that design was key and you have certainly captured that! There are so many food blogs out there these days and being different to all the others is key. I have just started www.ifoods.tv which is a website for chefs, foodies and food bloggers to hand out, share recipes, photos and videos. When i was blogging I always thought i should be getting more traffic as my blog was getting lost in the masses of stuff out there so my new site is aimed at giving food bloggers and chefs a bigger platform! Hope you enjoy it and keep up the good writing and design here! I have now bookmarked you so will be regular reader, Cheers!

Glad to see that you are back blogging! I have a great dessert that id easy to make and is presented like a chef. Here is the review I submitted about it and I know readers will appreciate it:

White Toque Chocolate Creme Brulee Domes: A Satisfying Gourmet Treat

White Toque Chocolate Creme Brulee Dome: Package Design and Price

The presentation of the package and photo quality were one of the main factors that led to me purchasing this product. The photo on the front was very well done. It looked very appetizing with the cocoa powder spread over the white serving dish, the hazelnut toppings and also the way the dome was photographed with the inside crème exposed made me curious about the taste of the crème. The price for the White Toque Chocolate Crème Brulee Domes was a little steep in comparison to my usual on sale generic ice cream, but it was most definitely worth the splurge. The desserts came in a box of two and were priced $7.69. Once I opened the individually wrapped domes, they looked like restaurant desserts and I probably would have paid more for two helpings of these at a restaurant, so this nice presentation accompanied with the taste made the higher than my average price dessert a worthwhile purchase in my eyes. I just hoped my fiancé was going to be impressed with this choice as well…

White Toque Chocolate Creme Brulee Dome: Nutrition Facts and Ingredients

These were not the biggest factors for me because I am not allergic to anything, the purchase was for taste over health and I was trying something different and did not want this to hinder in my overall opinion of the Chocolate Domes. The ingredients listed included milk, eggs, soybeans, wheat and tree nuts (hazelnut). I am aware that this is important to most people, so you can view the full product nutrition facts bar that is on the package itself on their online product webpage .

White Toque Chocolate Creme Brulee Dome: Preparation

The package does say that if you are not going to eat it right away that you should thaw these out in the refrigerator after putting them in the freezer, but I was going to eat these right after dinner. There was not too much that had to go into getting these tasty desserts ready to eat. What I did was get the meal I had prepared and thaw the box of Chocolate Domes in the refrigerator so upon completion they were ready to go. I do not like to put too much preparation into desert, so this was just fine by me.

White Toque Chocolate Creme Brulee Dome: Taste

This is what readers look for in food reviews. It all comes down to this question. How did it taste? I must say these Chocolate Brulee Domes are going to make want experiment with desserts more often. The desserts tasted excellent. The chocolate mouse was top notch. I have had lots of chocolate mousse in restaurants and this was just as creamy and tasty especially for an already prepared frozen desert. The hazelnuts on top were soft when served and really added to the overall taste of the domes. The one thing I was nervous about though was the center brulee crème filling. I had never heard of this crème let alone tasted it. The creamy center had a vanilla like taste to it and really brought the whole dessert together.


White Toque Chocolate Creme Brulee Dome: Final Thoughts

My fiancé and I loved the deserts and hope to try some more of White Toque’s other desserts in the near future. They have a whole shop online section on their webpage (www.whitetoque.com) with lots of other good looking deserts as well. I am glad I experimented with these Chocolate Crème Brulee Domes and would recommend these to anyone that is tired of the same old deserts and wants to have a little gourmet splurge in their home.

Hi! I'm discovering this blog for the first time.

What I need are recipes for people whose entire kitchen consists of a card table, microwave, toaster oven, and slow cooker; and are entirely unmotivated when it comes to preparing anything more complicated than frozen pizza or Cup-o-Noodles soup.

I feel sorry for Kosher Jewish people - you will never know the joys of a good bacon cheeseburger or chicken parmasian. Have you tried turkey ham and turkey bacon? Tastes almost like the real thing, and no pork involved. I dunno if they're Kosher, but you can check the labels.

Don't try non-dairy cheese though, that's just disgusting!
