    Guess I'll call her Sandrababy.
    I think I mistakenly called her show "Half-Baked with Sara Lee" last time. Perhaps that's even more appropriate than I knew?

    Re: The Kitchen

    My local wine seller sends out emails suggesting wines an individual might like based on their purchases. They recommended two Spanish reds. I'm not a red wine fan - hate Merlots and Sirachs because they're too heavy but I was looking for something moderately priced and nice with a steak or lamb.

    I was impressed with the first bottle - Mas de Leda 2004
    I just cracked open the second one and I'm equally impressed. It's El Quintanal 2005 Ribera del Duero. It's slightly peppery instead of being heavily so like a Sirach.

    I also had a Chianti recently that was totally outrageous but at about $50 a bottle it should have been. I had that while out with friends so I don't remember the name.

    Re: The Kitchen

    What kind is Mas de Leda?

    I don't like red wines as much either, but I'll do chianti and shiraz.

    And among Spanish wines, I generally like Riojas.

    Re: The Kitchen

    I've been drinking a lot of Rioja. I think that's why they sent me the suggestion.

    The place is called PJ Wines and Liquors. And they deliver. The place is worth a visit though. It's on 204th and Broadway. Not the place you'd think to find a great Wine and Liquor store but they're one of the best in the city. The staff is very knowledgeable as well. They also have a web site so you can Google them.

    Both of these wines were reds.

    Riojas are great for cooking too. Fry pork or maybe a NY strip steak and then add the wine to a roux -- delicious!

    Interesting. Wonder how far they deliver.

    I've been shopping at a store on 96th and Madison since it's on my way from work. Pretty good selection of inexpensive stuff. I also just got 2 really cheapo bottles from Fresh Direct. I wonder how they'll go


    I think we'll enjoy the wine tasting Saturday

    Maybe it'll make Ryan Sweeting look like Robert Kendrick

    Oh. My. God. I just made a bouillabaisse that made my husband....welll.... do the math.

    Never made it before.

    I'll be making it regularly.

    Do we have one of these? There are a lot of foodies here it seems, so post your favorite recipes or just muse about what you like to eat.

    Anyone like fried green tomatoes? Since the cool weather has made it virtually impossible for tomatoes to ripen on the vine in Maine this year, I just cooked up a batch. A little salt and pepper, a little flour, a seasoned bread crumb, and bit of bacon grease. Have mercy. I could eat them all day.

    Here it is. I moved Craig's post into it.

    Duh. How did I forget about this? Guess because food is at once a novelty and always on my mind.

    I love them too, Craig. I've known lots of people to eat them with a pan gravy. Personally, I think that drowns out the flavor of the tomato.

    Lately I've been craving scuppernongs. My grandfather used to have vines of them alongside muscadines growing in his garden. By this time of year we'd have buckets full. We would preserve them or my grandmother would make fresh jelly. Someone disastrously tried to make homemade wine (moonshine) once. It's rare to find either grape these days.

    Fresh squash would be good too. I think I'm just really hungry right now.

    Pan gravy and fried tomatoes is overkill.

    I like fried red ones, too.

    How do you like your fresh squash? Which kind to you prefer?

    I love butternut squash the most. But of the summer variety, it's neck-and-neck between zucchini and yellow summer squash.
