COOKING is the only all-in-one instructional that details the techniques that cooks really need to master, teaches all the basic recipes, and includes hundreds of photos that illuminate and inspire. Cooking authority James Peterson's definitive, all-inclusive learn-to-cook cookbook. 600 hard-working recipes everyone should know how to make-from the perfect roasted chicken to bouillabaisse and apple pie. 1,500 instructional photos, showing exactly how recipes are made, teach food-literate novices to cook with confidence and more advanced cooks to expand their repertoire.James Peterson has more than 1 million cookbooks in print.Reviews

Put simply, Cooking is a revelation. No other cookbook so deftly illustrates as broad a scope of classic culinary methods and flavors as you'll find here. As a veteran chef and award-winning cookbook author, James Peterson is uniquely qualified to take food lovers into the modern kitchen and turn them into passionate, precise, intuitive cooks. What's most impressive about a book of this breadth and size (540 pages and 600 recipes, brought to life with 1500 vivid color photographs) is how accessible and fun it is to read. Every recipe in Cooking sings with a deep knowledge of the ingredients at hand, encouraging cooks not just to follow the recipe but to really understand and relish in the process, and the result is a terrific turn-to reference for any cook seeking inspired instruction. --Anne Bartholomew

52.32 - Hot Cross Buns
Yes, it's another reflection!
The light is pretty poor in this house. And of course I'm too lazy to take photos in the morning or go outside...
But this is representative of my Sunday afternoon. I made hot cross buns! And they're nice. This is Dad's new baby. It's a Microwave/Oven/Grill that he insists is amazing and useful, despite the fact that we already have a microwave which can grill and a perfectly good oven/grill with a hob on top. He's been madly cooking things for much of the week. Luckily the roast pork & vegetables was too much to fit in it and Mum was in charge so it got cooked normally.
Work has been worky. One of my favourite bras got shoplifted, along with the matching knickers, and both in my size :s Not pleased. It made me feel very vulnerable when I found the empty hangers, just a few minutes after Hannah had left me on my own for the last 3 hours.
Debenhams is having a "Mid Season Spectacular" from Wednesday-Sunday so it's probably going to get quiiite busy. The old lady bras and the Sloggi knickers have special deals on which last time caused quite a rush. Luckily staff get to shop before the actual thing starts so I've got most of what I want already...
I've bought myself some nice train tickets for a day out in Bath (?6.60 return from Taunton, as 2 singles) so that's something to look forward to. And it's my sister's birthday soon.
On Friday I went to my old school's PTA quiz night. My parents' team was one person short so I joined in with them and got shunted onto the student team when she arrived. They went on to win (which means they have to do the questioning next time) and we came home with a bottle of wine and a huge box of chocolates :D
We made pancakes on Tuesday, with lemon and sugar of course. Very nice.
Hummm... Oh. I had a sandwich from Pain et Vin on St James' Street in Taunton yesterday and it was v good. They have a huuuuge list of things you can have in your sandwich and they do coffee & lots of nice drinks too. I also had ginger dunking biscuits which were v nice. They went a bit softer when dunked in coffee but didn't disintegrate and stayed nice and chewy.
29: The microwave tale
My Mum never had a microwave oven while I was growing up. In fact she views them with a deep distrust and frowns upon the idea of microwavable meals, in this I agree, preferring to cook meals form scratch and getting guilty pangs over the use of a stir in sauce! Other technological advances were very welcome in our home ,but never the Microwave, it became a strange instrument of science gone mad, with tales of things exploding inside( old bits of urban myth that kids love ) in our house.
Well Gordie has a Microwave oven - t`is witchcraft the way the food is hot but the plate is not, well not really , I know its all about bombarding the water molecules with somesuch but I find myself not wanting to be in the same room when it`s in use ... just in case,
