I am about to make my first pie. From reading, I learned I need a pie crust bag. I went to the store and was told I don't need it.
Can someone tell me which equipment I need to make a pie crust? I would really love to make a pie for Thanksgiving.
So far, I have a rolling pin and a marble...
I just bought this book and made my first recipe today.
I made the Black Cherry and Raspberry Kuchen. It is my very first yeast recipe.
The recipe took me through every step and my kuchen came out exactly as pictured in the book.
The Grand Central Bakery is the shop President Obama...
I am about to make my first pie. I have no pie-making equipment. I know I will need a rolling pin, for sure.
I was looking at this one, from La Cusine
Any opinions or suggestions would be...
in our backyard. Our blueberries were disappearing and we finally found the culprit...a chipmunk was sitting there, helping himself to our berries. We have bird netting shielding the berries but the little critter tunneled his way under the barriers. Our broccoli has also been disappearing.
No, it's not what you were hoping for I just wanted to say I was watching TV when they showed chefs cooking in the hot weather when there was no air conditioning.
I hope everyone is taking care in the hot weather and staying as comfortable and as safe as possible
I have recently been inspired to start cooking more than a hamburger or steak. I'm trying to collect cookbooks and am buying the pans and other gear. My past experience at cooking was making my own meat sauce, meat balls, stuffed shells and food that really didn't require knife skills.

I made one of my favorite recipes for Banana Bread from the Tartine cookbook.
The recipe calls for slicing a banana in half and placing it on top of the loaf to bake along with the bread.
I made this before and it was great
Well, today, not so much
It actually looks like someone stepped...
The title says it all. This book makes me want to put my other books in storage. Everything I have made is not good-it is fantastic.
I've been looking for a good recipe book for a long time. For me, this is it
I'm considering which loaf pan to get. I heard a lot of good things about Chicago Metallic. They are available either non-coated 26g aluminum or with a glaze called Americoat.
Any recommendations, please?
I am concerned whether Americoat can be a potential health risk

I made a carrot sheet cake this morning. I let the cake cool 10 minutes before I *attempted* to get it out of the supposedly non stick pan
Not all of the cake came out so I pieced it back together again
That was not the disaster
I then made a cream cheese frosting which came out so delicious...
I'm seeing a lot of recipes in high-end books where you must grill to use the recipe. How do you grill in the house?
We have an outdoor b-b-q but it's January!
These recipes really look good and I would like to make them.
Is broiling equivalent?
I made a quick bread this morning from a new recipe
I *thought* the recipe called for baking soda but it was actually supposed to be baking powder

Is it still edible?

Any thoughts or experience with a Thomas Keller book would be appreciated..
