It looks like Angie got the same "low end" slicer that I have. Easy peasy, lol. Maybe "high end" is the problem. :D

Mine looks REALLY similar -- I just paid a lot more!!!

I would love to blame the machine.... but I really think I'm just "slicer-impaired" ................

You want to center the veggie as best as you can and the straighter the veggie the better.

just ordered some RAW nuts and seeds and i may be headed in the direction of replacing my 'soy slender' milk (sweetened with sucralose) with an unsweetened something or other and then adding stevia to it

 

ordered tea from 'the republic of tea' - white ginger peach (haven't tried this one yet) and currently sipping on iced milk oolong - not bad :)

 

and for dinner tonight:

RecipeSource: Crab Bisque

 

with large fried shrimp (battered in almond flour, of course)

bisque is done - i used 1/2 TBsp of the guar gum and it is very thick but a little on the 'slick' side - this was my first time using it - i used a whole 16oz can of crab meat

 

got the shrimp thawed, peeled and de-pooped the ones that weren't clean enough - i have no intention of eating shrimp poo poo if i can at all avoid it

*gags*

psst.....i made yogurt today :)

my first time everrrrrr - hoping it will taste good

 

what i used:

 

 

as per what some of y'all said here along with what i read online - i used 8 cups of the milk and 1 cup of the yogurt - i heated the milk to 185 degrees then cooled it to 115 - added the yogurt and stirred it up well - put it into the oven which i had warmed and wrapped it in a towel - turned oven off but left light on - it stayed there undisturbed for 8.5 hrs :

 

 

when i uncovered it - smelled like cheesecake:

 

 

after three stirs around the pot with a spoon:

 

 

well stirred, transferred to another dish & ready to go into fridge overnight:

 

 

tomorrow i will put it into cheesecloth and strain it for a few hours

:D

Mmmmm... and who cares about lumps? I made a flourless dark chocolate cake twice. No matter how careful I was, I could not get the butter completely blended and ended up with tiny little flecks of unblended butter in the cake. Oh well.

I was watching this tv show-something like New Scandinavian Cooking (the host is CUTE & his accent is HOT!) and he made cheese with homemade yogurt! (& He was funny in making the yogurt...."you need yogurt starter...which is just yogurt". Andreas Veistad is cuties name & here's a link given during the show:

 

New Scandinavian Cooking | Welcome to culinary Scandinavia

 

I couldn't find that cheese recipe but they do all KINDS of good cooking stuff over there.
