Am I the first to get the September issue of FC??????  I may faint.


*******


Seriously - this looks like such a good issue, at least, to me.  I want to try everything. 


First - in the tasting panel they are rating mayo, and I'm happy to see that my favorite is the one they picked as the best overall - Kraft. 


There is a great "menu" article - A Taste of Tuscany in your Own Back Yard.  I'm definitely making this entire menu.  I think this weekend.


A couple of excellent articles on steak - I need to read them thoroughly later, but just glancing through them, they really did a great job on detail of the why's and where-fore's.


An article on slaws that has me salivating - I have to try the Mexican-style Slaw with Jicama, Cilantro and lime.


A yummy looking article on grilled potato salads, one of which has green beans, feta and mint that I think I may try this week.


Pink Lemonade is looked at - always a good thing.  I adore lemonade.


And the article I'm so excited to see is "Make the best fish and seafood cakes with recipe from Seattles favorite Chef" by Tom Douglas.  Recipes like:  shrimp & scallop cakes, crab cakes, creole salmon cakes, and lots of little sauces and relishes to go with them.  Ummmm.  They sound so good!


A nice looking article - and timely, too - on "simple summer fruit cakes" - Max and I are going to make the Blueberry-Lemon Cornmeal cake today.  I'll report on it later.  But there is also a Raspberry-Peach one that looks divine.


There is other standard stuff, but if the recipes in this one are as good as they look, I can tell I'll be turning to this issue a lot.

Got mine yesterday, and since I'm usually among the last, didn't think anything of it, but seems like I must have been near the top of the list this time.  The issue does seem to be really good; even the tips were pretty decent this time, LOL.

Well if you got yours yesterday in California, that blows my theory that mine came earlier because I moved to the east coast.

Got mine at lunch, just glanced through but a goat cheese/lemon/chive turnover thing is sticking in my mind, it was in the pullout in the back.

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

I just picked up my mail and looked at the Q&D as I walked back up the driveway.  Those turnovers jumped right out at me.  They look yummy!

No - or rather, I didn't recognize anyone.


Adele - agree about those little turnovers.  Actually, several things in that pull-out really interested me.

got mine yesterday - and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with it. Even the photography. :-)

You haven't gotten yours?  Don't we live sorta-kinda-near each other?  I would have thought you'd have received yours the same day I received mine.

I live in midwest Ohio. Maybe I should check more closely. Perhaps my sister or mom snagged it first. I will hunt them down.

And I live in North East Ohio, slightly west of Cleveland.  I thought we lived pretty close to one another.

Hmmm that is fairly close, probably 2 hours or so. I checked and am sure I didn't get it. Maybe tomorrow.

Edited to say...Well, maybe closer to 3 hours away.

Unbelievable!!! Mine came today. I'm usually one of the last.

Got mine today!!!!

even decided to login from home just to brag about it - had the post composed in my mind, more or less like this

"Maybe it is my uncanning similarity to Selma Hayek, maybe it is my outstanding performance in the kitchen (not to mention a few other places in the house), but I am once more the first to get the new FC issue!"

Well, I will pout instead and sit quietly at the sofa, to enjoy my FC, even if this time lots of you beat me to it....

Mine arrived in SC today.  Looks great.  Going to take a good look at it this afternoon.  Surprised the cover has not been changed on the home page of this web site.  Usually that's the first I know that a new issue is out!

You might need to clear your cache. The new homepage showed up a couple of days ago, which is how I knew to start watching my mailbox.

One of my favorite articles is the "Taste of TUscany" - makes me want to cook it all. I've been flirting with the idea of getting fregola to try it, but haven t placed an order yet. Obviously, I won t be able to find it in stores here, will have to "net-it".

From the quick and delicious part - I drooled over the Goat cheese, lemon & chive turnover. Seems tasty enough for me...

ANd the rustic beefsteak tart - on my list to try it soon, together with other 1,365 recipes

(I won t make comments on the tips..... I guess we should keep in mind that some folks who get the magazine might be just starting to cook, and some of the tips might be helpful for them)

I honestly didn't think the tips were that bad this time.  Perhaps I'm getting more tolerant in my old age?  Yeah, right!  Can't recall any that gave me a big "Wow, why didn't I think of that!" but there were none which made me say "Geesh, doesn't everybody do this?"

The winning tip, in my humble opinion, is more trouble than help. Several of the tips I've seen before - grapefruit spoon, freezing semi-soft cheese, ice cream burn, removing silk from corn

I guess the longer you read cooking magazines and books, the harder it is to find a new tip.. :-)

I liked the poultry lacer tip for the onions even though I would never do it.

Have you tried any of the crab/fish/shrimp cakes yet?  I'm going to bring the mag up to my Uncle's in Portland this weekend in hopes that there will be enough of the salmon my Aunt in bringing down from Alaska to do a little experimenting.


That, and the lemon-blueberry cornmeal cake, since my son has been picking blueberries everyday that he's been up there with my folks.
