Comment on extra-flaky pie crust by Mahtab

Mine was dry too! I noticed this and meant to add water to get a similar consistency to Deb’s but had an unexpected visitor and forgot. My dough is in the freezer now…any chance you made yours yet?

Congrats Deb! Can’t wait to get my hands on this book. I’m guessing it would be crazy to give you the address of the closest UPS store near the border and drive over to pick it up to get that one recipe? :)

Comment on 17 flourless dessert ideas by Mahtab

Hmm, it’s a light cake with lemon zest (I think) and in my opinion, it’s all about the toppings (i.e. lemon curd and raspberry coulis…we load it ion!). I’ll ask her what recipe she uses :) PS.

Comment on everyday meatballs by Mahtab

Made this today. Couldn’t believe how easy and delicious it was. I ended up doubling it and freezing half. The pan fried breadcrumbs were the perfect addition. Thanks for another amazing recipe Deb!

Impressions From Texas

by Jonathan Blaustein When I came home and announced I like Texas, my father looked as if I’d declared myself Nazi. The shock was real, even if the anger was feigned. Negative impressions of Texas run deep here in New Mexico, as we encounter the flashier, private-tour-bus-driving Texan tourists each summer. Like any bias, my own personal prejudices were hard to maintain, once I started visiting the state a few years ago. This time I wanted to check out Dallas, since even Texans like to mock ...

Comment on spaghetti pie with pecorino and black pepper by Mahtab

This looks delicious! Persian-styled pasta is served in a similar way (no idea on the history behind it but Persians love all things crispy – i.e., tah dig – the crispy rice at the bottom of a pot). Recipe for persian style macaroni pie here:
