Just someone who likes to cook. I enjoy experimenting with canning and bread making, and trying all kinds of (vegetarian) cuisine. Currently into learning cheese making.

comment Are there benefits to using a lemon squeezer?
well, like i said, they are doing double-duty by also being decoration in my kitchen, so it's not like they are taking up counter or drawer space. as for grapefruit juice, i get mine in a carton. :)

comment Are there benefits to using a lemon squeezer?
i should have mentioned that i have three different (color coded!) sizes, one each for limes (green), lemons (yellow) and oranges (orange, of course). got 'em at our local mexican market. not sure if i can post links, but here's the lemon and lime one: tinyurl.com/29lmkoo; and here's an orange one: tinyurl.com/2fze4x5

this is what i use, too. they are cheap, easy to clean and store (no counter space needed -- in fact, mine does double duty as decoration by hanging on my wall), and it does a good job.

comment Cooking with a pizza stone
you could also dust it with flour, but in either case, pizza stones typically are heated to 400 degrees or more, so be prepared for a short bit of smoke when you first put the cornmeal or flour and pizza on there. actually, now that i think about it, i'm not even sure you NEED to dust it with anything. they are so hot, i've never had any floured item actually stick to mine.
