Oooooh...Lookie what's coming--- Chefsteps.com

This new site gives free video lessons in "Modern" and traditional Cuisine It's being started by Chris Young who is one of the authors of that 650 dollar cookbook Modernist Cuisine that the foodie world is swooning over. So far the preview seems pretty but bare bones. There are no real courses up yet but for someone like me who loves all this kind of stuff I'm looking forward to what's to come. And best yet I won't have to fork over $650 for a cookbook....Not that I would do that anyway...even if I could afford it.

I got Chanterelles!

SO is bringing them home from our connection. Too bad I'm allergic because they use to be near the top of my list of favorite foods..... Tonight he's having risotto and tomorrow Chicken with Chanterelle and Champagne. It's so not fair...but there's no reason for us both to suffer..... I'll sniff longingly, and remember....and come up with that list of how he's gonna make this up to me....

Quick and easy salad combo's anyone?

Yesterday I made a salad of strawberries, cucumbers, a few grinds of black pepper, a squeeze of lime with some sesame seeds strewn on top. It was really refreshing and something different.

I also love cauliflower, broccoli, and green onion chopped really fine with some ranch dressing.

Libertarians try to block Romney from Washington Ballot

Source: AP

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- The Libertarian Party in Washington state is trying to block Mitt Romney from the November ballot, arguing that Republicans are no longer a major political party.

Officials said Thursday that the party filed a lawsuit in Thurston County Superior Court. The Libertarians contend that the GOP does not get an automatic slot on the ballot because state law defines major parties as those who receive 5 percent of the vote in a statewide race during a November general election in even years.

Republican Dino Rossi did get 48 percent of the vote in the U.S. Senate race two years ago but wasn't officially nominated by the party at its convention.

State elections officials cite other laws that say a party qualifies as a major political party if its presidential ticket got more than 5 percent of the vote in the last White House vote.

One Ingredient....Corn Butter!

I can't wait until the local corn is ready here. I am so excited to try this method of creating "Corn Butter". Basically you blend the fresh kernels, run them through a strainer then cook to thicken. The link has all kinds of ideas for tasty recipes.....

ON EDIT: This link is no longer valid and I did a quick google search for another but couldn't find a recipe. See my post below for directions on how to make this.
