Peach and Blueberry Crostata

Made my first recipe from Tyler Florence's new cookbook "Eat This Book" - a peach and blueberry crostata. Very easy and a very dramatic presentation. A nice alternative to pies, cobblers and crisps.

At last! Chicken Fries Rule!

After hearing from a friend that BK is running TV ads for Chicken Fries, I thought maybe, just maybe, that means the test marketing is over and they're really here. So, out we went to the nearest BK, and yes, it's true...they've been out about two weeks, and THEY ARE AWESOME!!! They taste basically like a BK chicken sandwich, except they're shaped like a French Fry. Now, to those of you thinking, What's the big deal? Well, you have to love chicken, and you have to love the concept of chicken, battered up with BK batter and served like fries - with a choice of sauces for dipping (I've only tried the barbeque so far). For me, it's the best thing to come out of fast food in a long, long time.
