Food, Fax and Saveur Recipes

I found a point of interest today for those of you who are interested in replacing kitchenware. Houseware companies launch their fall/winter lines this month, so summer merchandise will be on sale. Not a bad idea considering how long I have had my kitchenware, pots and pans, etc.
Here is another tip if you ever need to fax information. There are two sites that you can send a fax free which is good considering I do not have a fax machine. Here are the sites-- (send for free), and where you can receive faxes and voicemail for free, if you don’t mind a 206 (Washington state) fax number. As long as it is free why not use them. I went to both sites to see if there was a glitch but I did not see anything. However if anyone has used them or has a comment, please let us know.
I did receive an email today from Saveur(my favorite food mag) with two interesting food recipes.
One is for Boston Cooking School Brownies. This recipe for a gooey and rich brownie was originally published in Fannie Merritt Farmer's The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book (Little, Brown, 1911).
The other is for spiced apples which make a great foundation for apple pie or strudel. Spiced Apples. Check them out if interested.
BTW, PLEASE VOTE FOR MY SITE OF GRANNY'S TASTIES2 as there is a contest going on at Look (here) in the top right margin for the badge and click on it to go vote. I surely would appreciate it.

Gustav passed us by!

Not alot going on today as we have been thru quite a weekend just waiting to see what Gustav was going to do. Being on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi it was just where is it going. Luckily where I live on the coast, we only got wind and rain but not flooding. Down around Gulfport it was not so good with Highway90 being flooded and further up Hwy49 bayous were overflowing causing much damage along with the wind. Anyway I am home, safe and sound and only need to go out tomorrow and pick up all the tree branches that dropped.
If you are still getting lots of squash and maybe your neighbors are still giving it to you from their gardens, here is a recipe you might want to look at for a good hot dish. put out a fine recipe to try.
BTW if anyone knows of a site for purchasing decaf coffee pods for my Senseo coffee maker, please let me know. Every now and then I would like a cup of coffee and I only drink decaf. Thanks.
