Classic Home Desserts: A Treasury of Heirloom and by Richard Sax

By Richard Sax

“More a narrative of the pleasures of actual dessert-making than something but written."—M.F.K. Fisher

For this enormous assortment, Richard Sax dedicated greater than a decade to looking for and perfecting greater than 350 of the world's so much loved truffles, “the ones made at domestic via moms and grandmothers instead of through expert pastry chefs." each basic homespun vintage is right here: cobblers and crisps, tarts and cookies, puddings and soufflés, pies and pastries, ice lotions and sauces—nineteen chapters in all. Sax's types are justifiably mythical between complete bakers: conventional Two-Berry Buckle • Chocolate Cloud Cake • Bon Ton's New Orleans Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce • Reuben's mythical Apple Pancake • Best-Ever Pumpkin Pie • Schrafft's sizzling Fudge Sauce. Sidebars with each recipe—profiles of chefs, enticing reminiscences of favourite truffles, quotations from 1000s of literary works, and excerpts from previous recipes—show how goodies are indelibly woven into the feel of our lives.

Available from Amazon Or $10 from Lehman’s Easy Carbonated Water Maker Sodastream Home Soda Maker Concerned with our household’s waste-stream of plastic bottles and cans, we started using this counter-top soda maker to concoct our own soft drinks with tap water processed through a Britta.

Best of all, Sodastream’s proprietary CO2 cartridges can be conveniently exchanged either via mail or at accessible chain stores like WilliamsSonoma.

Jay Allison Magic Fish Scaler $11 Available from Cabela’s Bulk Pineapple Slicer Pineapple Slicer/Corer I’m not usually a big fan of single-use tools, but this is by far the only tool for this job. We had a party where I needed to core and slice three cases of pineapples, and what could have taken all day took but a few hours. No skill is needed. You just cut off the top of the pineapple and screw down the corer. Once you are at the bottom, pull out the meat and you’re done. The pineapple is evenly-sliced and you are left with a usable hull (for serving fruity drinks in, of course).

All juicers introduce some oxygen into the juice because of the mechanical process of extraction. With some fruits and vegetables, however, this machine does a noticeable job of reducing the amount of foam. Using two carrots from the same bag, I juiced one in a centrifugal juicer and one in the Omega. There was a lot less foam with the Omega, and the color of the juice was also darker and richer. Overall, I’m thrilled with my Omega 8003 juicer. I paid about $229 for mine, plus shipping. I feel that’s a very reasonable price to start changing my life and health.
