thanks (post #54781)

thanks for the welcome and the info.  When I said I was a techno-peasant, I really wasn't exagerating...I barely know how to check my e-mail!  I'm surprised I made it through the registration process. 


I like to cook a bit of everything, but am particularly fond of italian.  To be honest, i've become bored of cooking the last few years - hazards of cooking for a family, I guess - so I'm hoping a new kitchen will restore some of the fun.  I haven't had a really good kitchen since the mid 80's in Vancouver!  (I'm jealous, Glenys, it is so beautiful there!)  Please bear with me.

Okay - you can reply to people's posts in the same thread...no need to start a new one.  It might take a little getting used to, but this board is great.  Lots of wonderful people who are full of great advice.

Welcome -- I love cooking Italian too ... my favorite of the "celebrity" Italian chefs is Lidia Bastianich -- she used to have a PBS cooking series and has a new one coming out soon.  Her Italian-American Kitchen cookbook is my favorite.


My husband met her at her NY restaurant and said she was very charming.

I watched her show every Saturday, got the cookbook too, but haven't made anything out of it yet.  What are your favourites?


(Take pity on a person who can't handle change, what was your 'before' name?- Thanks)


But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

I have always been AJ :-)


The Ziti with Roasted Eggplant and Ricotta was so good it stopped traffic in front of my house -- just the smell was fabulous.  But I love eggplant.


She also had a recipe in FC #24 for Spicy Capellini that I make for unexpected quests -- it is so quick and everyone loves it and the ingredients are so easy to keep on hand.


But really any of her pasta dishes in that cookbook are going to make you smile.

AJ, I don't have #24, would you post that Spicy Capellini recipe, please. If you don't have time, maybe Li would tomorrow.
