Great book on color combinations

Taking a break after a day of cooking, with this really neat book of amazing color combinations.

I still had some beautiful ripe peaches from our son and daughter-in-laws orchard, and a peach sorbet seemed to be the easiest thing to make for dessert.  It's in the freezer finishing what the gelato machine couldn't or wouldn't do; and the chicken is marinating in the peanut, ginger, garlic, citrus sauce. After this break I'll husk the corn and get the chicken on to skewers. I've also got some leftover potato pancake mix from yesterday, so I'll fry  a couple of those even though they they're not a great match for the Asian skewered chicken and the corn on the cob. Oh well, it's certainly has an International vibe! 

The gelato manual was no where to be found after practically taking the house apart, so I need to dig deeper on the Internet and see if there's a website where I can download one. So far, I've had no luck finding the manufacturers web site. Fortunately I was able to find a couple of hints and basic "must do's",from one or two forums; but I really need to find the manual which also had some good recipes. Where do these things disappear to when we move. I'd sure wish someone could tell me how this happens. Is it the moving gremlins or is it deeply hidden away is some dark, unexplored corner or folder. Maybe a prayer to Saint Anthony, patron saint of lost objects is in order. Lord knows I've tried everything else! 


  1. How about putting scallions in the pancakes? That's Asian.

  2. No scallions in the house Dennis; but I will be using that in the Korean scallion pancakes in the near future.
