    Jyoti,

    Unfortunately not. It was a short weekend without kitchen access. I've never tried turkey eggs.

    I often snap a picture of a pie I've just made, even though I hardly need more of those in the files, but this one really captured the flakiness of the crust:

    Lovely, but I'd suggest putting the zucchini atop the cheese next time -- it'll lose some of its moisture and get somewhat caramelized, greatly improving its flavor.

    Actually, I was following what Giada did on her FN show.
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/zucchini-and-olive-flatbread-recipe/index.html
    She baked the zucchini on the crust first.
    Mine went into the oven like this

    and then added the cheese & baked it until the cheese browned

    If these are tasty cookies (seen through the packaging,) then why do these bunnies look so shocked? (Yes, they're about the size of Milk Duds.)

    Had the same thought.

    Watched the video on Bill's blog and, while I agree about the attitude problem, the mango fork seems to work slick as a Ritz cracker at the county fair.

    I bought an oxo mango splitter, which Bill is mildly negative about on the video. Works ok for the occasional use for me, but I don't eat all that many mango's.

    Enjoy,

    How is this possible? Have you tried the "champagne" variety (a.k.a. "manila", "ataulfo") that Costco is selling right now? I made a video of me eating one of these but YouTube blocked it due to the sound track's "adult content".

    Bill,

    Actually, I meant I don't eat all that many mangoes in comparison to you. After all Wikipedia has 800 words on Bill in SF and mangoes. :)

    Thanks, Michele. It's probably the same one you are using - from Cook's Illustrated. It is the best crust recipe I have ever found - flakey, tender, flavorful, easy to work with, etc.

    Actually, my initial reaction was akin to that of the internationally-beloved Andy Ihnatko in a similar context. To paraphrase: "if I had wanted that much salt in my stew, I would have DONE that". But I really am trying to get improve my meager skills at this, so I welcome pointers anyone might have.

    I was going for a bit of a high-key effect. On my monitor (a recently calibrated Eizo CG241W), I see little difference between your version and mine. What didn't you like about mine and what did you do to correct that? Thanks for the help.
