Karen's notes: I'm back in bed with my husband, and we're back on our normal blog schedule. Yay!

Hey, STM is getting philosophical on us. Bonus: if you listen closely around "when your questions," you'll hear Molly's ears flapping.

Merch reminder: Last day for both of those promos in the right-hand panel. I'll give you a hint, though, that they're starting free shipping for orders over $30/£30 tomorrow, so if that's better for you, wait it out.

  4. and it was DELICIOUS! I highly recommend everyone google Chicken Marbella and make it, today! Make sure you marinate overnight.

    I add more olives and prunes, and I put in less brown sugar (for those in the UK, what we call "brown sugar" is that really dark brown, fine baking sugar).

  5. Oh, and I FINALLY found the secret to perfect lemon salad dressing (thanks to Adam's aunt Diane). However much lemon juice you put in, add triple the amount of olive oil. Then add a bunch of salt, some pepper, and just a little bit of sugar. I crush a clove of garlic as well.

  6. We call it brown sugar over here in the UK too, lol,

    ReplyDelete
  7. But you also call the raw sugar (which happens to be light brown) "brown sugar". You know which I mean? I believe Americans call that "raw sugar".

  8. Huh, there are *two* kinds of brown sugar? I need to bake more XD

  12. I'm usually a lurker enjoying the wonderful meanness that is STM. However, I'm going to wade into the 'brown sugar' debate. What people call brown sugar heavily depend upon where they grew up and most importantly the molasses content. Brown sugar can go from light brown sugar, which is called regular brown sugar in some places, to muscavado sugar, which contains the highest molasses content. My comments are premised on the fact that you're talking about cane sugar and not beet sugar which some people use in parts of the world such as France. I don't know what beet sugar tastes like as I've never used it.

  13. er... at our grocery store, they are called light brown sugar and dark brown sugar.

    and ninja bears... hee!

    oh and what is demerara sugar?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, god, kill me now. I go through this constantly trying to communicate with Adam about what sugar to use for different things.

    In the States, there's also powdered sugar (also known as confectioner's sugar). Is that what demerara is here? I can't remember. Argh!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Back in the dark ages of cooking, like 20 years ago, there was white sugar, confectioners suger, light and dark brown sugar! And nothing else. Now you've got that and Demerara sugar, Turbinado sugar, extra fine sugar and in some parts of the world you can buy cuban sugar which is a pale brown because it is not as highly refined as white sugar and not quite as sweet as white sugar but it is not brown because of added molasses. I've also heard Europeans refer to brown sugar as Castor surgar.

    And I have to agree with Karen, Chicken Marbella is the best recipe, it's also a fantastic dinner party recipe because most of the work is done the night before. Wows all the dinner guests every time.

  16. Demerara is a type of brown sugar. It looks like brown granulated sugar It most commonly used to sweeten coffee. Be patient with Adam It isn't his fault. The Brits just have different types of brown sugar. Hope that helps.

  20. Demerara is a slightly more trendy name for light (or "natural") brown sugar.

    @Anonymous: Beet sugar tastes exactly the same as (refined, white) cane sugar. You can make brown sugar from beets, but only by adding molasses!
