    Gut, I am drooling and I don't even like eggplant.

    Can anyone suggest a good way to thaw pizza dough? How long would it take in the refrigerator? It's in a plastic bag. Thanks!

    I may be too late if you wanted it tonight, but if the bag is air tight, I'd put it in a bowl/pan of warm water.

    Haven't done it yet, so that's a great idea. Thanks!

    You're welcome! That's how I defrost fish as well. Since the flesh tends to be less dense, it thaws in no time

All in all though, it was terrific and pretty easy to fix. I didn't grind the peppercorns or the coriander - I had them ground already, but I don't think that makes an appreciable difference.

    It's so nice to have another veggie recipe in my arsenal!

    I have been making Livin's roasted chickpeas like crazy. They are the perfect snack and everyone loves them.

    I'm off to the store to get 4 more cans of chick peas.

    This may be a stupid question, but when is the last time that anyone has seen any Peach NeHi in the store? I'm having a craving!

    Dave didn't use the kumquats either, but I want to next time, because I think they'd be a yummy addition. And now we can find them in all the farmers' markets. I think Dave ground the peppercorns and coriander -- mainly because we got the whole ones in the bulk jars at the natural foods store up the road, but the already-ground stuff would've been fine. We did use less pepper the second time around because we wanted the heat to be more of an "afterthought" than a "spotlight" flavor. The beauty of this recipe is that it's so easily adjustable to individual tastes.
