I made the olives on Friday for happy hour with some friends. Everyone popped one in the mouth and moaned in unison. I wish I could figure out an easier way to push the cheese in the olives.... but it doesn't matter. They're heaven on earth.

I used a pastry bag with a tip with a wee opening (just big enough for a mustard seed). Speeds the process up immensely.

Thanks Savorykitchen -- we did the same. Made it a lot easier.

Thanks for including my oysters in the lineup! I'll be making the stuffed olives this evening for our viewing party. Yum.

I can vouch for the fact that your oysters are delicious. Hopefully more people will get over their fear of frying and try them out! (Also, I need to make those olives, soon.)

What I failed to appreciate before I moved to San Diego in 1974 is that the Oscars are an unofficial state holiday here. Too bad we can't make money from it, Ahh-nold...Tomorrow,SDUT will have blaring headlines, kind of shameful with a capital "S", I think - unless Meryl gets it for you know who!

I've been sick in bed almost all week and so what a delightful surprise to log in today to see that my soup was one of the things you featured! Thanks so much!!

Thank you for including the Leek, Lemon & Feta Quiche in the Oscars party roundup! I'm honored. I will have to serve up another slice of gratitude. Hope everyone has a great weekend, and that the favorites all win.

I love your themed menus! & thanks for including the posset! A lot of these recipes don't require an oven, so I can make something! Fingers crossed that the Sears guy can fix mine on Tuesday!

Oven down? Sorry to hear; don't know what I'd do. Well, yes, I'd get on my landlord's case and have a rare moment of being glad that I rent and don't own. And maybe I'd stop making and eating so many quiches and tarts and cookies, and get back to salads. Hope it's fixed soon.

I can barely stand this - do you want my credit card number? I remember your lemon posset and know, "This woman is OK and a serious baker/ cook. She is stable, probably more than you are." Why do I want to buy you a stove...
