Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What Are Your Favorite Holiday Cookies?

My grandmother made all the traditional Italian cookies at Christmas- pizzelles with anise and dried orange peel with dusted powdered sugar cookies.

Re: “The newly revived Sutler features a menu heavy on preparation, and heavy on good, heavy fare

It's OK to every once in a while provide a point of criticism. Like "no matter what you order, you'll leave farting," or "order a beer and a hot dog and you'll be wondering how your check got to $17."

Seems like a nice spot
for a CHURCH in Nashville.

Re: “Bread & Company Acquired by Florida-Based First Watch Restaurants Inc.

I did look at First Watch's menu and the omelet selection was interesting. Add the omelets and don't change anything else. Much. Especially the tea. And the scones. Or the bacon. Or the croissant. And keep all the front of house staff. Particularly the cute, short order breakfast cook/girl/hottie.

@bellenic - yup! The almond flavoring is one reason I like them so much. I plan to make a batch soon for my blog.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What Are Your Favorite Holiday Cookies?

TL- I also use an old recipe that asks for powdered sugar - it was my grandmother's recipe and they are the best (do you use almond extract too?). I usually become a baking crazy woman during the holidays. White chocolate, macadamia nut cherry cookies, fudge, gluten free peanut butter cookies, salted chocolate chip toffee cookies, sugar cookies, shortbread, various brownie versions but my I don't actually make my favorite cookies. I think we called them Mexican Wedding cookies- powdery pecan goodness. I can only eat my mom's.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What Are Your Favorite Holiday Cookies?

My dearly departed great-aunt made the world's greatest divinity. I tried making it once with my Mother - words cannot describe the disaster. I will pay cash money for some. Point me in the right direction, I need a fix!

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What Are Your Favorite Holiday Cookies?

When I was a kid I loved making Spritz cookies — any kind of food that allows me to use a caulking gun contraption is A+ in my book. But these days, when trying to do something a little more impressive, I opt for Martha Stewart's Striped Icebox Cookies. The recipe appeared in her special edition Holiday Cookies magazine years ago. They take a little time — you have to make a filling as well as chill, roll out, and layer the dough — but you can do a lot of the prep ahead of time, then slice and bake when you're ready. Their crispy cornmeal based dough tastes a little custardy and the tart cherry filling gets chewy once baked. They're so awesome. They also have a long self-life, about 2 weeks. The recipe is here: http://www.marthastewart.com/340207/stripe…

Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What Are Your Favorite Holiday Cookies?

My mother made some Date Pecan Bars (which include candied fruit) from Southern Living in the '70s - that says Christmas in my family. The other family standard is a cutout sugar cookie (made with powdered sugar rather than granulated) from a '70s Tupperware cookbook. They are still my favorite sugar cookie.

Re: “Bread & Company Acquired by Florida-Based First Watch Restaurants Inc.

Oh lord, this scares the crap out of me. If they change the fruit tea, I may have a come-apart. I love the coffee (BJRC) THE APRICOT SCONES!, the peanut butter - chocolate chunk cookies, the Babka at Christmas, their bacon, the salads, and the chicken salads. The employees are so nice. Remember when they made potato dill rolls? Oi! I think their croissant is the best too. Yes, better than Provence! It's a Nashville institution that should not be monkey'd with. Much. First Watch - we're watching you...

46th & Utah may have parking problems, but that's about five blocks from Sylvan Park's restaurant row. I wonder who will get the corner lot beside Star Bagel.

Re: “Nashville's latest Vietnamese restaurant is a stone gas

I have lived a block from this place for 22 years. I think Mr. Cavendish protests too much about the "*th South" moniker. When I moved in, the area was known as "8th South" just like "12th South" was "12th South"; "Melrose's" comment is spot on. And I've NEVER it mentioned or called "SubWedge"-and that is a truly awful name.

Re: “Sylvan Park Lands New Restaurant From Chef Deb Paquette of Etch

Neighborhood should have a say before it opens and have a plan in place. I don't mind walking a few blocks to go eat and I'm looking forward to it. I just hope the group behind the place works something out up front instead of after the door opens. I grew up in west nashville and I'm just glad to see the changes keep coming in that area. Not sure I would qualify as Zola's location being in west nashville.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,
