Ask Ruth Your Cooking Questions

I can't believe this but it's true. Back in July I planned on having a sister site that would respond to cooking questions like - "What can I use if I don't have parchment paper?", or "What IS a courgette?" (it's a zucchini).

Since then I've been juggling blog writing with the writing/editing of my cookbook Every Kitchen Tells Its Stories - Recipes to Warm the Heart (I know, I've heard about it to death and when am I going to be publishing the thing?) Believe me, I'll be making so much noise, you all know about it.

Anyway, I digress...I've been so very fortunate to have recipe testers from around the world provide me with much needed feedback. Of course I love to hear when the recipes are perfect, but even more important, when things need clarification. And that's where some of these questions come into play. I do have a Cooking Primer section in the cookbook that includes a glossary and conversion tables, plus Cooking 101 tips for things like searing meat and trussing a chicken or turkey. Somehow, I forgot about my AskRuth site and only yesterday decided it was time to get the ball rolling and post a few questions and answers myself.

Much to my horror, someone had asked me a question about chocolate ice cream. I have no idea when he left it for me except that it was at 7:48 a.m. whatever morning it was - could be yesterday, could be back in August. You can check the Welcome Comments for my very late answer.

I promise to do much better with answering your questions in the future. So just for fun, or whenever you get stumped, hop on by. I'll be looking for you.
