Now now, Harry.... You should know me well enough by now to know I'm not going to get into politics on the food photo thread. That's a whole 'nuther subject that deserves it's own place, but not here.

LOL.

That looks really good, pacanis. Please forgive me, as I haven't gotten my new glasses yet...but that looks like glazed chicken (or beef..?) over rice, and roasted new potatoes...? I may be sorry I guessed but it looks scrumptious.

Cornish hen with dried porcini mushrooms and marsala.
And I did the potatoes in a pan, so not exactly roasted... come to think of it, I should have cooked them in my new toaster oven.

I whined, cried, and stomped my feet until Spike brought me the new sitting in the box, toaster oven. It had been sitting in his house for a couple of years. Now that I have it, I am afraid to use it for anything but toast. If you are the guilty party to set off the smoke alarm in the building, they put you in the middle of a circle, pointing their finger at you, all the while chanting a curse upon your head. I am going to have to bite the bullet and use it, even for a Hot Pocket.

I still have those moments...getting better about using it for most things.

I really need to try making brownies with it. I'm sure it's the temps that were ruining them in my regular oven.
It may take several attempts, but I'll get it

Pac, what was your oven doing to them? Although my oven temp is straight on, I found that lowering the temp just my 25 degrees than what the recipe calls for, mine come out perfect. They aren't quite finished cooking, but I just shut the oven off and let them finish in the residual heat.

I discovered my oven was running way hot, Addie. And the door doesn't seal tightly either. I'm pretty sure that lead to my woes with some items including breads.
