    SOS, ISO salmon serving advice.

    Cooking the fish en papillote (method of steaming by wrapping in parchment papper or even foil) is a great idea especially for keep the fish moist. The only thing is it tends to overcook if you don't release the steam when its done. It is a great method though

    Pumpkin Bread Fail

    If you need to keep cooking them you can always put a loose foil tent over the top to prevent them from over browning. By then most of the steam will have been released so it won't become soggy

    ISO advice for gift for inexperienced cook - HA or SS

    What to Buy... Welcome to DC. I am not a fan of buying cookware from Costco, but I do shop there on occasion. Bottom line is I were buying cookware for an inexperienced cook I would buy something in a non-stick form. I don't use non-stick, but if somebody is just learning how to cook than...
