I have been trying to develop a four bran muffin and would like to include corn bran but cannot find a source. Does anyone have one?
This time of year I like to slow cook beer and cider brisket on the grill all day while making a batch of beer. I like bacon wrapped bison meatloaf with blackstrap molasses sauce. I like sweet potato rolls, pumpkin custard, apple pie with boiled cider, shoo-fly pie, molasses bread, date cake, and eggnog ice cream. It's time for Greek-style manicotti, seafood lasagna, and calzones. I'll add smoked turkey, dried cranberries and crunchy fresh apples to my salads. I'll make...

The bottom tier was a very dense and moist banana cake with caramel filling, the middle tier was a lemon cream cheese pound cake with a lemon curd and fresh blueberry filling, and the top tier was a dark chocolate cake with black raspberry mousse filling.

Thanks for the input. The bride says (now) she really doesn't care. Her only dislikes are hard cooked eggs. She doesn't even like cake. I'm doing this more to help my friend (her mom) get through this with less stress.
I have been asked to make the cake and food for a wedding 12-17-2011 for about 60 people. Any suggestions?
Hi Greg,   Welcome to the CT forums. BDL is right, we need more information as to what kind of cookbook you're interested in. Do you want a comprehensive book, simple recipes, main dishes only, ethnic tastes, small portions? Are you skilled in the kitchen or a beginner?
We took five grown children with us to celebrate my birthday this year at my favorite sushi place (Maki Zushi) with my favorite sushi chef (Yoshi). The final tab was over a grand. That's why the kids don't usually get invited.
