~ Culinary Q&A & Kitchen Therapy Too (3/18/11) ~

Culinary Q & A #2 Spring is definitely in the air today here Central Pennsylvania, which is perfect timing because Sunday is the first day of Spring. It won't be long before I'm writing this blog with my doors and windows open and a warm breeze upon my back!

My St. Patricks Day posts got a lot of attention from you all (and I thank you), and, over the next month you can look forward to my posting some recipes geared towards the upcoming Easter holiday!

Yesterday, one of my Facebook readers, Les, returned again this week to my Friday Culinary Q&A and submitted two great comments and another question/request:

PICT0103 Q.  Les comments and asks:  I can't thank you enough for posting your baked potato soup recipe.  I made it for my wife's family and everyone loved it.  It is different than how I remember my grandmother's (I know she didn't use any bacon), but I think if she tasted yours she would change her recipe!  I know it took you a lot of time to write this post and I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your doing this for me.  Also, while I did not make your recipe for Caesar salad (yet), my wife roasted the chicken breasts the way you showed us to in the Caesar salad recipe and she said she will never cook chicken breasts any other way.  They were juicy and really delicious.  

Easter is coming up and I was wondering if you will be posting or would consider posting recipes for baked ham and roasted lamb?  My wife Marlene and I always end up drying out our ham and we have never cooked lamb at all.  Marlene says if she is going to try any new recipes she wants to try one of yours.  She also said to mention that she told her friends at the rehab facility (where she works) about your blog and they watched your new food/music videos over their lunch hour today (Thursday).

A.  Kitchen Encounters:  Les (and Marlene)... Flattery will get you everywhere... You have just made my day... Food blogging in general is hard work and feedback from folks like you is what keeps us bloggies blogging!!!

You and your wife make a good cooking team!  You can both count on me in the upcoming weeks for my recipes for Basic Baked Ham and The Best Boneless Lamb Roast.  Both recipes, while quite easy, produce perfectly cooked, moist, juicy, flavorful meat and lots of it, meaning: the leftovers make fantastic sandwiches.  Once again, thank you for your continued support and kind words!

Enjoy your weekend everyone, and once again:  To leave a comment or ask a question, simply click on the blue title of any post, scroll to the end of it and type away!

"Kitchen"! Thank you for your kind words. In my opinion a blog is the voice of the individual writing it. I am most happy that you are enjoying mine! Hope to hear from you again!

I just read the whole blog. I found it very interesting. I like that you shared such a nice information about your routine activities.
