BurgerFi???????????

We have one that just opened in Orlando. Pretty decent, lots of al a carte choices. Good sized patties and you can get them single, double, or triple. It can be cheap but you pay for everything (no meal options)if you get a burger, fries (enough for the whole table) a drink and different toppping (premium or standard) it can get expensive.

Best Cookbooks as Gifts

Illustrated Cook's book of Ingredients. I received this book for christmas last year and love it. I can buy something I've never seen or cooked with before and know that it will be in that book. It explains how to prepare and different food pairings. I constantly use it as a reference.

Has anybody tried the Supertaster test?

@Adam - with great taste would come great responsibility. You wouldn't want that 'super taster' ego to get in the way.

ice cream, made with a ice cream maker.

The crystalizing is the water content in the fruits you are using. I haven't tried yet but I have heard of people using small amounts of vodka or rum(the 3 to 4% mentioned by @AnnieNT) This will bring down the freezing point and help some. Also as with the other suggestions try to strain as much water as you can.

help with a meal plan

I'm in the exact same boat as you are. I hate when people say you're skinny eat this huge piece of chocolate cake. I then say no thanks I don't want diabetes by the time I'm 30.

I tried a high protein diet to gain weight and ended up making myself sick in about three weeks. My doctor said to mix carbs with high protein as to not over work your digestion. So the pasta advice is good. Also lots of bananas. I eat about three a day. Since you probably have a high metabolism eat as many meals a day (or snacks) as you can. I've gained about 10 pounds in the past year and it wasn't easy.

Where to eat in Boston

My wife and I went to Boston for our honeymoon and went to two fabulous places. Sorellina is a high end Italian restaurant in Copley Square, excellent food and service. If you are looking for some local cuisine go to the Barking Crab near the financial district. Try to do a tour of the Sam Adams Brewery if you can, quick tour and get to try lots of beer.

How many cookbooks do you have?

I have about 30 books and my wife was getting mad that I wasn't using them so I couldn't buy any more then came this website: http://www.cookbookrecipedatabase.com/

It might help those with lots of books feel more like they are actually using them and not just taking up space.

Ciabatta sliced for sandwiches is delish!

Need Some Denver Eats

Awesome! Thanks everyone for the advice. I should have known that putting the words "must stop" would cause the Casa Bonita recommendation. I'll let you know how everything was when we get back.

Respect the pig,

I would have to say pork butt. Perfect in the smoker, inexpensive and easy to cook.

Orlando Food Scene

I would like to thank Kenji for discussing different aspects of the Orlando food scene here on Serious Eats. I feel Orlando gets a bad rap and people think it's only Disney World and tourism. Orlando is a great city and has excellent food choices from the Vimi district (vietnamese), our higher caliber dining in Winter Park (the Ravenous Pig and Cask and Larder) and the many gourmet food trucks that we have around the city. If you ever travel to Orlando, I assume for the parks or maybe a conference :), Check out what the city has to offer. You won't be disappointed in our selections.

A thank you to my Denver Eats Question

I posed a question to the board a few weeks ago and asked about good places to eat in Denver. There were multiple suggestions for the Vesta Grill. My wife and I went for our anniversary dinner on Saturday and it was spectacular! I would like to thank everyone that suggested it and would fully suggest it to anyone that is looking for a wonderful place (not casa bonita) to eat.

I had a beautifully cooked duck breast and my wife had an excellent tenderloin. The best was trying all the different sauces that they make, we had about 10 different ones on our table.

Need Some Denver Eats

I will be in Denver for two nights with my wife for our second anniversary in June. Does anyone have any good places to eat? I'm not particular on type of cuisine just want something that is a must stop in Denver. We will be staying near downtown but don't mind traveling a bit. Thanks!
