I would say you could mix all but the buttermilk and refrigerate that overnight and then do the final mix in the morning.

This is the exact recipe that I got from my Italian mother-in-law 27 years ago. There are a few minor things I do slightly differently. First, I break up the almond paste and run it through the food processor. Then I add the sugar with it so that it totally is incorporated. Second, we';ve found we only like apricot, not raspberry (and I m...

We love these crackers. Just baked up a batch but have made them many times. Per other suggestions, I also add 1/2 tsp each of garlic powder and onion powder. I also substitute 1 Tbsp of olive oil for 1 Tbsp of sesame oil, which I always have on hand. I agree they need the longer side of the cook times to get crisp. Yum!"

I have made this several times and it is fantastic every time. Yesterday I made it with raspberries (frozen 9 months ago from our local farm). My family thinks that the raspberry one is even better than the blueberry one but they are both excellent. My sister made 2 in metal pans and had issues with overcooking and undercooking. I always use m"

I never liked fruitcake at all but decided to give this one a try. I made it in mid-late winter (after I got the book for Christmas). It was wonderful. I am seeing my elderly parents soon and plan to make some summer fruitcake to bring to them! I made mini-loaf pans and let it age 3-5 weeks before it was all gone. This time I'm going to put i"

This was an excellent Lenten meal. Everyone in the family loved it. I highly recommend trying this recipe. I might experiment with more/other veggies and some other fresh herbs next time. But it was excellent as is too."

We really liked these waffles. I used 3 eggs like several other people. The batter is really thick and they were very filling. The taste was wonderful. We couldn't taste the sweet potatoes at all, but could detect the citrus/orange zest. Next time I think I might try to add 1-2T of orange juice just to loosen the batter.

Made this for Thanksgiving. We all loved it. I had to watch the videos a few times to supplement the printed recipe. The brine is great. I was worried at first because other meats I've had that soaked in brine were far too salty, but this one was not! Definitely a keeper.

Made this recently after watching the show. Used 1/4 C half and half and 1/4 C skim milk to approximate whole milk, which I never have on hand. Even though I mixed the buttermilk into the milk ahead of time, it still curdled when added to the oatmeal. But the taste was great and we will make this again.

Made this for Thanksgiving lunch. We loved it. I made 2 substitutions. I used half-and-half instead of heavy cream. I used Feta instead of goat cheese. I made 2 of them. One had a small bad spot that I had to cut out, but then had a hole near the bottom of the pumpkin. So I dry roasted the pumpkin, apple, onion and garlic. Then scraped it...

I just made 2 of these (one blueberry and one blackberry) for Christmas dessert one night. I had frozen them back in July. It worked great! All I heard from my family that night was "it is just like a wonderful taste of summer" as it was snowing outside. I made a 1.5 recipe for a deep dish pie plate.

Update on using a partial frozen recipe. At Thanksgiving I dry roast the pumpkin, apple, onion and garlic. I then scraped it and froze in a 1 qt freezer bag. For a Christmastime lunch, I heated the broth, cheese, cream and thyme, added the thawed pumpkin contents and then ran through my blender. It was as good as fresh made.

I made this twice. The first time was a mixture of blackberries and blueberries. The second time was just blueberries. We really liked it a lot. Although I haven't tried it, it definitely seems like it can be used with any berries you have handy.
