I heard that but I’ve not seen them on the shows or cookbooks I have. I don’t currently subscribe to their magazines or website. I’ll have to double check my cookbooks now that I know this is a thing. :)

Now that I know what to look for, I find the Skillet Lasagna, a Quick Fettuccine with Bolognese, and Four Cheese pasta recipes in my Dinners for Two and 20th Anniversary cookbooks. :)

I made pretzel hamburger buns today (first time - they are great). It was finally a bit cooler, so I grilled some burgers over oak. I did not want to cover up that lovely smoke flavor, so I served with simple shredded cabbage seasoned with salt and a bit of red vinegar. Air fryer fries on the side. I work tomorrow and this took a bit of the sting out of Sunday.

Made "browned butter blondies". Pretty decent. I overcooked them a bit – a habitual flaw in my baking. Also, the cat started licking them – a new recurring problem with cats and cooling baked goods – so I can't take them to work.

Those look great! How hard were the buns?
Thank you. The buns are very easy IMO. The hardest part is getting them in and out of the the simmering alkaline water without mis-shaping them. I also like that they are sturdy but tender - I dislike those "cotton candy" hamburger buns that disintegrate when you add the meat.

Somebody's gotta say it... your raw chicken looks kind of sad, Josh. Was it fully thawed when sliced? Or is that just the result of some pounding?

Pounding. A little tougher than I’d like but the cooking hides it. With babies to take care of, prep is very rushed these days :)

Did you cut your own potatos to make these fries?

The few times I made my own fries via cutting potatos and air frying, I found they tasted a lot better than the frozen or fast food stuff.
Yes, I cut my own potatoes. I also much prefer that to the frozen.

Nothing so grand as chicken piccata, but I did second round at blondies. I doubled the chocolate chips from the original recipe and decreased my cooke time. I also did a better job, I think, at browning the butter. The initial take is that they're really good. :)

Cooling in a cat-proof manner...

The final blondies.

I'd love to take you up on the offer!

Almost all those blondies are going to the office. I like baking, and am doing more of it lately. But I don't need to eat it all. So, I'm taking baked goods to work most weeks.
I was doing the same, until my co-workers started cursing my name as they stuffed their faces. :D
