On the first Tuesday of the month I email a short (2-3 page) newsletter to my clients, friends, students and associates who have signed up to receive it. The newsletter is called, "Food for Thought". It contains 2-3 recipes, tips and tricks (the stuff cookbooks don't tell you) and a "My Favorite Things" column that can include kitchen gadgets, places, pans, techniques, whatever. I also [usually] do a monthly "give-away"....
Anyone out there in blog land who is interested in getting one more piece of email a month, send an email to: email@example.com just put send me your newsletter in the subject line and I'll take the hint and mail it on out.
2 cups strawberries (washed, hulls removed and sliced)
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Put strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a heavy pan. Pot should not be more than 1/3 full. This is going to bubble up! Cook and stir over high heat until sugar melts. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 4 minutes (the kind of boil that can't be stirred down). Stir constantly.
Cool in a glass or ceramic bowl, covered. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature over vanilla ice cream. Also great as a base for strawberry milkshakes. Store in refrigerator, covered tightly. Can be kept for 2 weeks.
