That was a fun podcast. I'll contribute a quick and easy strawberry idea. I use a high-fat Greek yogurt, sprinkle it with a little light brown sugar, and use it to dip strawberries. You actually don't eat that much yogurt, so the fat isn't a problem.

When I was young, I spent a lot of time with friends in Princeton. Eggs Benedict at the Nassau Inn was our favorite cure for mild hangovers. I'm sort of a purist about crabcakes, but then I only get them on biannual trips home. I always come home with some Old Bay for shrimp.

Great podcast! In Siggy's Soup recipe, what is "35% cream"? Half and half, maybe?

obi's sister: Here in Germany, 35% cream would be whipping cream. Half and half is about 10%. The lightly soured creme fraiche and schmand are in the 60% range. If something will be boiled, you need about 30% to avoid curdling. Please don't ask why I am so knowlegeable about creams? If this were on webcam, you could probably guess.

Thanks anon. I was listening to the podcast in the background at work (don't you just love the internet!), so I figured I just missed that part.
