Fighting spam and technical issues.

The last week has been a really bad blog week starting with all sorts of technical problems due to my web hotel and ending with a hacked blog with spam in every post. I’ve just finished upgrading WordPress to the latest update and I’m going through every single post to remove all spam. If you encounter any issues on the blog, then please send an email or write a comment.

The above picture is from Pottery Barn, with a drink dispenser that I really would love to have for future dinners and parties in the garden. Unfortunately they don’t ship to Sweden and I havn’t been able to find anything like it here. If you’ve seen a similar dispenser in an online store that ships to Europe, please let me know. Now I’m off to a store, to try convince them to order in a shallow Le Creuset casserole in teal especially for me so that I can use it for risotto :-) According to the sales support of Le Creuset that should be possible, but I need to check price and details first.

    Oh! I love that drinks dispenser. Necessary for summer parties, I think.

    While the le Creuset is very beautiful, I really don’t like making risotto in them. I find that it catches and burns on the bottom much more easily than in a stainless steel pan.

    That le Creuset is definitely something I’ll be looking into…

    I can’t blame you for coveting those drink dispensers! Those are awesome!

    Foodycat: Yes, it looks great, doesn’t it.
    I usually use my large heart shaped Le Creuset when doing risotto, and I have no problems at all. Which kind of stove do you have?

    Jasmine: I think it’s beautiful!

    HoneyB: It would be perfect for summer.

    Mine’s gas – with very distinct hot-spots. I think my problem is laziness and lack of attention when stirring my risotto. You have a heart-shaped le creuset? How divine!

    Foodycat: Thanks for repyling. Now I’m getting worried that it’s due to the gas and not your lack of attention :-) The stove at the new place is gas, so we’ll see how it goes.
    The heart shaped casserole is truly divine :-) It was a wedding gift from an old friend and I love it. Here’s how it looks: http://www.webvert-cookware.co.uk/casseroles_heartshape.htm

    Hi. I am a colleague of DT’s and I made the heart-shaped burgers for Valentine’s Day. Tonight the GBC team she’s been working with for the past 2 years+ have been invited to her new house for a farewell dinner. We can’t wait!
