So, I made beer can chicken the other day, and now I have the gizzards to attend to. I'm on a budget right now, so I don't want to just toss them, but I don't know what to do with them. What do I do with them? Stock? Gravy? Fry them up and nom nom nom? At the very least I love chicken liver, so I can fry that up with some onion and have a snack. You can also vote that I just give it all to my neighbor's very friendly cat. Thanks in advance for the advice!
I had the idea to do a "meatless Monday" for reasons of health, and, more importantly, creativity in the kitchen.
So, here's where you come in:
I need ideas.
Good vegetarian dishes and recipe websites are welcome, but what I really need is some lunch ideas.
Armed with only a fridge and a microwave at work, what can I do to limit my consumption of pb&js and reheated leftovers for lunch?
and bon appetite!
I'm relocating to New York State's Capital Region and would like some advice on eats. I went to college in Troy and lived for a spell in Albany, so I know that area well (Brown's, Red Front Pizza, and DaVinci Pizza FTW!), but I'm going to be in Schenectady.
So: what should I be eating in Schenectady? Best pizza? Best Chinese Takeout? Diners? Burger joints? Anything and everything.
And, if you have any suggestions for that whole region, don't be shy about sharing.
For Albany, I recommend Bomber's Burrito Bar, Dino's Pizza, and Capital Q (BBQ).
Also, for Troy, I recommend Muza's European Cuisine, and Famous Lunch (mini hotdogs).
Now, it's your turn to share! :-D
I've got a taste for burgers swimming around my palate, but I don't know where to go. In 'N Out is a solid choice most of the time, but I want something new. At the very lease I'll walk down to the local diner (Piggies) and get a chili cheeseburger.
Does anyone have any recommendation for burgers (double points for chili cheeseburgers) in Los Angeles's South Bay area, specifically the LAX region (Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Hermosa Beach, Hawthorne, Lawndale, etc)?
And, of course, if you have any place that just _needs_ to be tried that's within driving distance, don't be afraid to give that a shout out.
As always, thank you and bon appetite.
It's that time of year again, and I'm going to be at my parents' house and I thought it would be nice to take them out to dinner. I just don't know where.
They live in the LAX area, but I would consider driving anywhere in the LA area if it's a good enough restaurant. They don't eat out much at all, so what ever restaurant it is they probably haven't been there. Any place that's not seafood specific is fine (my mom doesn't like seafood :( )
So...what restaurant should I take them to?
Thanks, and bon appetite!
I'm going to be in Saratoga Springs, NY, mid next week and I was wondering if anyone knows of any place to grab a quick bite to eat. It'll be for dinner after a long day. Not looking for anything fancy, just a quick burger, burrito, sandwich, etc, etc.
Thanks, and good eats!
I found live eel at a small Asian market where I'm staying for the summer and I think I just might have to try it out. The only question is how.
How to prepare it, and what to pair it with. The only sad thing, though, is I don't have a grill, so those options are out (sadface).
All information is welcome, because I know nothing about eel besides eating it a couple of times in sushi.
Today I made coleslaw for the first time, having copious amounts of red cabbage left over from a taco recipe I tried (delicious!). I used the cabbage, some onions, the tiniest amount of bell pepper I had lying around threatening to go bad, and a carrot. The dressing I made consisted of mayo, milk, apple cider vinegar, a dash of lime juice, and just the tiniest amount of butter. I tossed the veggies with the sauce, added course-ground salt and pepper to taste.
It's good, but it's missing something, I just can't put my finger on what. I would have like to use pickle juice in loo of the vinegar, but I didn't have any. The dressing just seems a little too plain. Any ideas? Thanks.
The other day I went out to dinner at a nice little Turkish restaurant and one of the side to my delectable meal was some sort of wilted onion. I'm thinking it was sliced white onion wilted with white vinegar and garnished with just a tiny amount of parsley, but I'm not sure. I couldn't taste any vinegar though the onion flavor, which was dominating, but mild for an onion. I'd love to make this on my own, but I don't know where to start; any ideas or recipes would be greatly appreciated.
Oddly enough, the menu did not have any words other than the names of the dishes, and instead had images of the meals. I should have asked while I was there what the onion side was called, but unfortunately I did not.
I went shopping the other day and they had a decent deal on asparagus (okay, I lied: I just saw it, said, "Ooo, asparagus," and bought it), but now I don't know what to do with it.
Sure, I could boil it, or steam it (I like my asparagus nice and limp), but I've been experimenting with more adventurous cuisines so I'd like to do something different with it. Any ideas?
My friend made asparagus wraps a couple of times, but I'm looking more towards a side dish (but if you have a good entree recipe don't be shy about posting it).
While at the grocery store I came across a good deal on boneless beef short ribs, only I don't know what to do with them. Sometime around Christmas I had made a simple braised short rib dish, so I was hoping for something a little different (variety is the spice of life, no?).
Anyway, does anyone have any recipes they would like to share? Or just some general ideas of how to prepare the meat? (Side dish ideas are also welcome).
& bon appetite!
What's an appropriate wine to go with the tradition Thanksgiving turkey meal?
In addition to that, what would be a good set of drinks to serve before and after the meal (aside from the obvious coffe, tea, water, sodas). And because it's that time of year, cider will be plentiful at my house, so anything that mixes with that would be great.
I'm currently going to school in upstate New York, but will be visiting my parents for Christmas and I thought it would be nice to take them out to dinner. They live in the LAX area, so it would be nice to find a restaurant around there.
They like La Focaccia on Rosecrans Ave in Manhattan Beach, but I was hoping to try something new. I've also tried the Macaroni Grill, and Cozymel's on Rosecrans.
Any suggestions? I'm open to anything from a small burger joint to a fancier restaurant.
