We all love the new kitchen and find ourselves hanging out there quite a bit -- not something we did in the old kitchen. I've also been enjoying my new range -- especially after cooking meals for six weeks using only a microwave, toaster oven and rice cooker.
This weekend I baked up a batch of gluten free chocolate chip cookies. My recipe is nearly perfected, and I'll be posting it over at my other website soon. Let's just say that Pete has mentioned that they might even be better then chocolate chip cookies made with regular AP flour, so there you go.
And last night I made something I've never tried before because I thought it was too easy to mess up -- Spaghetti alla Carbonara. And it was not difficult at all. Plus, one of the few ingredients is bacon -- so of course everyone liked it.
I really need to mention the new non-stick pan I bought about a week back. My old non-stick pan was looking pretty bad -- you know how it is. It was definitely past it's prime. After a bit of research, I decided on a Scanpan and I am loving it! I bought mine at Sur la Table (love this store *so* much!) It works beautifully, cleans up easily and doesn't have PFOAs, so it's non-toxic. Oh, and did I mention that the non-stick coating is supposed to last ages -- they have a lifetime warranty. Crazy, huh? I'm hoping I'll never have to throw out another non-stick pan.
