Try the kale salad at Beecher's Cheese in Flatiron - it's got roasted brussel sprouts, roasted mushrooms, slivered almonds, shredded flagship cheese, and the most amazingly light dressing.
hilarious post - love it!
I haven't eaten a lot of nachos in NYC, but Rodeo Bar in Murray Hill has pretty good ones
I always add a few teaspoons of cinnamon to my brownie mix - cinnamon is my secret ingredient in all baked goods (boxed and scratch).
impressive, the rhythm and rhyme are just right
I love this post!
I totally agree with Ed - putting food in pie form just makes it better, especially at Thanksgiving!
Was only able to try Dinosaur BBQ's pulled pork sandwich but it was really good. Even better was the baked beans that came on the side!
a couple months ago I bought Butter Baked Goods pumpkin spice marshmallows from Dean and Deluca, they were amazing! I wish it was a year round flavor.
agree with a previous post about Auntie Anne's pretzels!

pumpkin oatmeal with extra cinnamon
california pizza kitchen!! soups, pizzas, pastas, appetizers and especially the salads - all so good! it's family friendly, affordable, and you never have to make a reservation ahead of time.
sushi lounge on 7th st. and ave A. cheap!
frozen yogurt like pinkberry! i think it tastes much more refreshing, especially with fruit toppings.
I didn't know there was so much variety, maybe I should look up those books instead!
I'm curious about what the different bbq sauces taste like in the different regions. I've heard there is a difference between Texas, the Carolinas, Tennessee, Kansas, Florida, and probably more areas. Is there a recommended guide that details the differences?
I like to change it up and try new things for dinner but for lunch I have the same thing everyday: turkey and cheese on whole wheat, side salad, grapes and yogurt. I feel like I can have whatever for dinner because I eat healthy at breakfast and lunch!
desserts with apple, appetizers and entrees with raw/seared tuna, chickpeas, eggs, and/or any kind of crumbled cheese (goat, feta, blue, etc.)
great post! you are right that the double down is really just like a chicken cordon bleu. i'd be interested to see a recipe for a grilled version!
I was pretty surprised at this years winner. recipe was totally unoriginal – she didn't combine the ingredients in an interesting way. It probably tasted good though.
I think it all has to do with promoting Pillsbury's premade products. The company probably makes more money through those products rather than the basic flour or shortening.
between 8 - 9 at night, depending when I get back from work. I don't have kids so every meal seems to be shifted later by a few hours. I eat breakfast around 11 am and lunch around 3 pm.
looking for a dinner place, thanks for all the suggestions!
