Where to eat in/near Nashville?

Loveless Cafe- DO IT! Get the biscuits. Oh... just thinking about them makes my heart flutter...

Slice's Bay Area Pizza Map

San Jose is an ENORMOUS part of the Bay Area and it was skipped...

Gadgets: Progressive Collapsible Cake and Cupcake Carrier

I own this exact one and I LOVE IT!

Moxie: The Official Soft Drink of Maine

Moxie is awful. It tastes like motor oil. But I love it. Because I love my Mainers and I love the idea that Moxie conjures- those perfect Maine days, when it feels like you are literally in the most beautiful place on earth. And the peace of the land just seeps into your bones. So Moxie is awful, but I love it with every, teeny, tiny spec of my being.

Tamale Dinner- Xmas Eve, side ideas NEEDED!

@Karmafreecooking- melt my heart! That is DEFINITELY going in as an appetizer for that night. @Chileruizstra the eggs over easy sounds- AMAZING! I think I'll have my mom man the frying pan. Everyone who suggested a salad- THANK YOU! I am going to use one of these recipes, for sure!
Gosh everything sounds so great, I think I'm going to have Mexican food for lunch now too! Keep them coming and THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Russ & Daughters Brunch Package

2 eggs- over easy, sourdough toast, applewood smoked bacon- lots of it very crispy, a mimosa, and my best friend laughing across a white table cloth from me.

Mixed Review: Betty Crocker Mississippi Mud Supreme Bars

I made these, THEY WERE DAMN GOOD! I mean seriously, the marshmellow filling was awesome, and I don't even enjoy brownies perse. The cookie bottom really broke it up.

I want to say bacon, because my love for bacon runs deep and runs wild. I have the bacon wallet, bacon tshirt, bacon gummy candy, bacon lip balm, bacon mints, bacon jelly beans, chocolate covered bacon, been a member of bacon of the month club, I special order bacon from farmers across the midwest & south. I mean... I. LOVE. BACON. However, for space? Gotta be pop rocks. Why? When they are such a mediocre candy. (I am also a candy-aholic and a cheese-aholic) Because everyone wants to know what the hell a pop rock is gonna do while you're eating it floating around a space station!! And think of the possibilities of pop rocks in space- pop rocks released into the universe!!! It blows the mind. It really does.

Halloween Poll: What's Your Favorite Peanutty/Peanut Butter Candy?

Yeah, where does Butterfinger come in here? Butterfinger is not peanut butter nor nut based... right?

And where can we see what people put down as "other"?

Poll: Are These Dishes Played Out?

It is DISGRACEFUL that people would say Mac & Cheese could EVER be played out. Enormous booface on that!

HAPPY HOUR WASHINGTON DC

Willard Intercontinental :)

Pretzel M&M's--Anyone tried them? What do you think of them?

Not good. They taste like maltballs. Ick.

Come on in 'The Kitchn'

Cedarglen, I think next time leave your murderous egg rage on another page, because this forum is not the place for it.
Thanks,
The Foodies.

Baltimore- must haves?

Thank you, everyone!!

The Best Bagels in Maine? They're at 158 Pickett Street Cafe

Scratch Bakery in South Portland is giving them a run for their money!!

Baconfest 2010: Pig Belly Paradise in Chicago

@BellytoBacon what was the dressing like on the Purple Pig salad? It looks DIVINE and I would love to try (no matter how pathetic) to recreate it. SO JEALOUS of those of you who attended! I want to go next year!

Video: Cat Drinking Water With its Paw, and Other Drinking Methods

My cat drinks with his paws on and off. Very cute :)

What's The Best Sandwich You've Ever Had?

BLTTA @ Cafe Rosalena in San Jose, CA. Order it on a fresh crossiant! Turkey, bacon, avocado, lettus, tomato on a crossiant and then warmed panini style.
Oh MAN I want one now!!

Crab Meat! Craving dip...

So it's cold and yucky outside today and I'm really looking forward to relaxing at home after work and I would love to make some crab dip to nosh on. I'm wondering if any of you have some special recipes you might share with me or give me other cold day ideas to enjoy some crab. I've already considered crab cakes, but if you have other ideas, bring them on!
Thanks everyone, happy eating!

Tamale Dinner- Xmas Eve, side ideas NEEDED!

I will be making a tamale dinner and hosting a south of the border themed Christmas eve this year. I wanted to mix up tradition and try something new for my family! My mother will be hosting a very traditional Christmas dinner the following night, but Xmas eve is going to be una fiesta! I live in CA so getting nearly any ingredient is no problem, but I need help with ideas for side dishes. Of course mexican rice and both refried and black beans, but what else (?!), I need either a salad or veggie side and something else that is fun and festive.
All suggestions welcome! Gracias! :)

Huntsville, AL- must haves?!? All tips welcome!

I'm traveling for business for one week to Huntsville, AL and I have never been to that area, so I need your tips! Please no chain restaurants (of I'll be going to a Waffle House, but that's an exception that everyone can understand and appreciate.) I do have transportation, so surrounding communties are ok. I've been to Memphis & Nashville, but Alabama is a first! I love southern food, with some exceptions. I love seafood. I do not have any food allergies.
(this is starting to sound like a personal ad- ahhh!)
Thank you for your tips for cuisine, restaurants, points of interest, and travel advice!
May your travels be merciful and your champagne chilled--

Baltimore- must haves?

Traveling to Baltimore to for a long weekend per family occasion. What are the must-haves?
Please don't suggest chain restaurants! Price is not of grave importance, we're looking to offset the fact we're in Baltimore by eating glamorous food! ;)

Thank you for any and all suggestions!
