Taste Everything Once talks about Penzey's, which is the only place that I buy spice unless I am in a cinnamon-emergency or something similar. If you order something I recommend you add some of the natural cocoa to your list. I've never seen anything like it.
Sweetnicks weekend wrapup includes a recipe for Slow Simmered Beef Roast that I've just gotta try.
I miei cari amici ... aka my friend Garry ... gives us his recipe for his now famous Tuscan Bean and Rice Soup, which I also can't wait to try. Don't miss the generous serving of Dante that Garry dishes up with this recipe.
