Sesame Candy
I tried this recipe out of Lidia's latest cookbook. It tasted great but was totally the wrong texture. It turned out the texture of granola. There was no pouring and cutting it. What went wrong?

Mango Basil Chicken
Dear Lidia, I have enjoyed your shows for several years on PBS. One of you first focused on one pot dishes. I loved the Orange Rosemary Salmon. I really wanted to use chicken, but Orange Rosemary chicken didn't work as well. I thought Mango and chicken sounded good, but not rosemary. That is when I thought...Bsil. It is one of my favorite dishes to make and I wanted to say thanks for having dishes that are easy and delicious. Dennis

Homemade Sausage
Hi Lydia, My best friend makes her own sausage, and my favorite is made with raisins, apples, orange peel, and a little hot pepper. She says her family used to make it with liver as well, but she just uses ground pork now. I wanted to write down her recipe, but she doesn't know how to spell the name her family used. When I tried to google it, I got something obcene. I'll try to spell it phonetically the way that she says it. The first a is long and the second a is short. It sounds something like i-fa/gi-ta. Do you know anything about his sausage?

I can all summer long with fresh garden fruits,veggies and beans. When I have left over vegetables from a meal I either use them in a frittata or I make a vegetable soup adding a few more ingredients.

I live alone and often buy a rotisserie chicken. More often than, not, I don't finish it all so I cut off the legs and wings and wrap them separately to heat up later. I also remove the breast and use it to make chicken sandwiches with grilled squash and pesto on a kaiser roll (yum!). I use the carcass to make my own chicken broth which I freeze into ice cubes or for soup. If I'm feeling really ambitious, I might make individual chicken pot pies with the breast meat and the broth. This $5.00 chicken really goes a long way!
