So some close friends of ours just had a baby, and I wanted to send dinner over so that there was one less thing standing between them and enjoying time with their new son.
Two problems - I moved out of Queens a few years ago, and now live in NJ, so picking something up and dropping it off (or cooking) is out of the question.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a place in Sunnyside (or that would deliver to Sunnyside) that does decent take out?
Thanks mostly to traffic, and partially timing, my latest impromptu trip to the Donut Plant on the lower east side was thwarted. I had promised my four year old a donut, and wasn't going to disappoint, so we ended up at Dunkin' Donuts on the way home - it's round and cake-like - all the qualities he looks for in a donut.
So it got me thinking - I've lived in NJ for the better part of 6 years, and haven't found a REALLY good donut. In the defense of circular confections everywhere, I haven't done too much looking, but all I have come across are a few bakeries and/ or diners that make one or two pretty good ones - nothing I would go out of my way for.
What I really am in search of is a real donut shop - multiple varieties, mostly yummy.
And I should mention that I live in Summit, and even my gluttony won't make me drive to Cape May for a donut!
So after 10 years, my trusty KitchenAid is finally making a death rattle, and I am reasonably certain that making struffoli this year is going to kill it, in much the same way it has been killing me to eat three pounds of them every year.
So here's my question - my old one was a tilt-head 4.5qt model, with a 300w motor. The new tilt head only steps up to 325w, not much more than the one I killed. To get a 425w model, I would have to go for the lift bowl. It seems like it might be a pain to try and add ingredients, or reach in and scrape the bowl if the head doesn't tilt out of the way.
Any one have any thoughts or comments on this?
Ok, normally I would bake my own, but on the way out the door this morning, my wife requested a red velvet cake for her birthday, which is today.
Anyone have any suggestions for bakeries that do a good red-velvet?
Thanks to Saturday's predicted and not delivered snow-pocalypse, I am currently the proud owner of way too much leftover pulled pork. As much as I like a nice pulled pork sandwich topped with homemade slaw, I'm looking for some creative ways to use it up, other than the whole "taco/enchilada/nacho" route.
Iv'e already come up with pulled pork grilled cheese (although I am still debating exactly what cheese to use), and pulled pork eggs benedict, but I have so much left over that I could use a few more ideas. Any thoughts?
