I just re-hydrate it, and use it in recipes like this, or curries and the like.

This dish also had some mushrooms - cremini and a little boletus - with some onion, garlic, rosemary, and the basil, added toward the end. I used some thin soy, as the salt, because I always use soy in mushroom dishes, as the flavors just seem to go together. It was delicious, and creamy, like a risotto, but I'm sure it will solidify, and I'll have to add water to the leftovers when I reheat it.

Your posts tend to fascinate me, and this is no exception. I'd love to be a taste tester. It sounds mysterious.

Around these parts, sfogliatella (sfo-glee-ah-tella) are known as clamshells and are more on the roundish side. Lobster tails are long and huge! We grow'em bigger up here.

Yeah, they can be more rounder. Depends on the bakery. But it's pretty much the same thing, just a little different. Capeesh?

(I was using my hands the whole time as an additional descriptor.)

This sounds really good. I love the disclaimers at the end Reminds me of a discussion here recently.

Tips for success with holy yum chicken
These tips/disclaimers..again, please donít take offence or think Iím ďtalking at you.Ē

I only put these here becauseÖif you have the time to scroll through all the commentsÖyouíll see the comments from the very beginning that caused this disclaimer section to even happen.

So yes, everything that Iím answering belowÖit happened one or way another with readers.

Like yes, people actually came to yell at me for improvising this recipe and not following the directions.

The tips are 100% needed.

1. If you donít like mustard, you likely will not like this dish. 1/2 the recipeís ingredient is mustard.
2. It will taste mustardy with a nice hint of sweetness! So again, if you donít like mustard, donít make this.
3. If you donít follow directions and want to improvise, that is definitely ok! But please do not come back to yell at me for a failed dish. The instructions are laid out completely below because I have tested it myself and it works the way itís written below.
And so on, for 11 disclaimers

I hosted my book club meeting last night. I made Italian tortilla spirals with salami and provolone and spinach & artichoke dip. I also sliced some Cara Cara and blood oranges, drizzled them with our honey and sprinkled them with Penzeys Pico Fruta. The fruit was a nice contrast with the richness of the other dishes. Forgot to take pictures.

In reading through Julie Wampler's blog, I find her to be a no nonsense blogger.. I find that pretty refreshing..

She has a video for most recipes..I like viewing a dish being put together.. There are a few more I will try..

I also got a kick out of the disclaimer notes from the author GG.

Having said that, I'm wondering how the recipe would be with boneless pork chops rather than chicken. It seems the flavor profile would work with pork too.
Thanks for passing on the recipe Ross!
