    I just realized!!

    I owe you guys some pictures! I have not done a ton of baking but, I did do a pretty nice Quiche. the Y has decided he likes Quiche for breakfast. which is good because I LOVE making Quiches. I have made them a little shallow in the past, you know, the typical wide and low tart style. but, I was reading Ruhlman on Quiche and he was waxing rhapsodic on the beauty of deep dish Quiche and how creamy it is. So, I tried it and I LOVE it!

    I have to apologize for one, though. I made some nice Pithiviers but, for some reason, I didn't get pics of them. I'll be making them again, though. I LOVE them!

    But, for today, here is the Quiche. Deep dish, baked in an 8" deep pan of dark metal. the crust in laid over the edges and baked laying overm then trimmed with a rasp. this makes a great crust that doesn't shrink and it also leaves the baked scraps available for coating or for sprinkling on, say a custard. yummy!

    After that, the Nice little Scones I made. Good thing I took those pics as they came out of the oven cause, well, they didn't hang around long. Simple sweet scones with dried fruit. Cranberries and a bit of dried pineapple and mango. the Jam is home made Meyer Lemon Marmalade. The Y found them on a great sale so we made up a batch of the marmalade.
    Enjoy the pics, and accept my apologies for the tardiness!! I don't have a smart phone so, snapping quick pics that are easy to post isn't the way I do them. But I love doing my pics. I think I learn from them when I shoot them.

                        I have a few tricks with scones. first, think of it like puff pastry. VERY cold butter. I cut a stick into 6 long pieces, then cut those into 1/8 inch slices and pop them in the freezer. that's FIRST. then sift ALL the dries and do it from a good height to give it LOTS of air. Then, mix all your wets together. this way, the egg will be well mixed with the other wets and won't clump up. add the butter in last, and mix with a fork (to keep your body heat from melting the butter.).. Roll it out and fold and roll, quickly 3-4 times so that you get the layers you have in puff pastry. you really ARE making chemically risen rough puff pastry. your final roll should be no less than 1" thick.

                        cut straight down. I like fluted cutters to let the heat get in faster. never, ever twist, that seals the edges, making it harder to rise. brush with a little bit of milk or cream stretching the dregs of your wet bowl. just add a tablespoon or so to the same bowl you beat your eggs. there will be just enough to brush the tops. lastly, bake them at 425. it needs to be at least 425 to bake the butter hot enough to part bake and part fry the layers of butter.

                        all of that will give you flakier scones/biscuits. make them smaller rather than larger. dainty little scones rather than cathead biscuits. They really are nice. but, they will not be as moist as southern biscuits because you don't use the fats for shortening the gluten, but to create the layers. that's OK, that's the way it is supposed to be. Took me a while to realize that part.

                        Good luck! Scones are fantastic!

                        My next "Tea Cake" with be Maids of Honor. those look terrific!

                              The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                              the good one grill

                              The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                              Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                              masterbuilt gas smoker

                              Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
