This is awesome, Kenji. Great work!
Yay! Congratulations again, Nick!
Thanks, Thomas P. I'll check them out!
I'd definitely be willing to try the Snickerdoodle cookies but the Keebler Cinnamon Roll cookies scare me. I did see an advertisement for Sonic cinnamon roll bites the other day. I'm a little curious but maybe not enough to pull the trigger. Maybe a job for you (Carrie) or whoever is doing fast food these days?
The conference will be hosted at the Martha Stewart offices in Chelsea (W 26th) the next day. It would probably be ideal to stay between in the area, down to LES. For an amazing restaurant, I'm more than happy to go farther.
Love "Bro-chi"! And you know how I feel about Polynesian food. I think it must be lunch time somewhere...
Gotcha. I thought Rorschach was talking about the main SE page. No idea on how they calculate the "Hot" versus "Latest." They do seem to be the same...
Mmmm. Honey butter. I guess I need to make some whipped cream for the strawberries in my fridge and then just keep whipping.
If you're talking about "Featured Talk" then that area is manually selected by SE staff. The latest is literally just based off of what was posted last. I'm not sure how often Featured is being updated, but if Talk is a little slower, then that's why you'd probably notice more duplication.
You may have to venture pretty far for some of these pizzas/slices. I'd plan on compiling a top 10 or 15, that way you can pop in if you're in the neighborhood.
That being said, I like: Joe's on Carmine, Di Fara (I like the semi-dried cherry tomatoes), Best Pizza (Williamsburg), Joe & Pat's (Staten Island), Patsy's in Harlem, Artichoke Basille's grandma slice, Motorino (try the brussels sprout pizza). I recommend sticking to a plain/margherita pizza wherever you go unless I mentioned something else. I think that's the best way to really be able to taste the pizza for your first experience.
@Red Ran Amber: You're welcome!
Hey guys! I used to post the Look Who's Talkin' feature and change out the Featured Talk. I know the SE team is working hard to find a full-time community manager. When they do, that person will fill the void and handle those two items in addition to many more. Hope that helps!
Wow. Alaina, you will be greatly missed. Thank you for all you've done! I hope this means you will have extra snuggling time with Malcolm.
@Dandbuilder: I love it! SE counterattack!
The author was obviously a cereal hater and thus does not matter. Cookie Crisp is the only cereal I do not care for on that list. Bad childhood memories. I begged for my mother to buy them for a month and then was sadly disappointed by the taste when she finally caved.
That does sound delicious. And I second Max's idea.
Awesome! Sending this to my mom. Gluten-free FTW!
Second the motion for Magic Erasers. I've also boiled a bit of vinegar in the bottom and then let it sit. Stinks to high heaven, but works.
@missmochi: Most definitely. I've been here since 2009 - not going anywhere : ). I've just been fortunate with other opportunities. Thanks for the kindness!
Round Up is posted! Thanks for all of the amazing shares. And excuse my broken eyes if I missed any details.
@claireOOTO: The Round Ups are posted in the main site section, not Talk. Here's the last one.
Sorry - maybe I wasn't clear? I wasn't trying to only ask for vegetarian recipes, just pointing out that legumes are a perfect way to please everyone when entertaining.
@zahavah: Yes! Tortilla española! I lived in Spain for a little while and that was one of my favorite things - and we ate it regularly at about midnight. I think I just decided what I want for dinner tonight. Thanks!
I love Katie's socks to complete the ensemble. Great video!
My mom made our birthday cakes from boxed mixes when we were young children. I have photos of a Cookie Monster cake that was demolished and subsequently left blue everywhere. Then we changed to ice cream Dairy Queen cakes - which are what I really picture when I think birthday cake. I loved the crunchy chocolate bits. Teen years were sheet cakes from Costco, which I would use a fork to eat the cake but leave the frosting on top. It was always funny when someone would go to cut a piece of leftover cake and watch as the frosting top caved, and they discovered it was a hollow tunnel of frosting.
My best cake ever as a child was a white wedding cake at my brother's wedding. It was the absolute most moist cake I'd ever had. I dreamed about it for years. When I got married, we found a local bakery (Granite) that makes amazing cake. We had a strawberry swirl layer with a fresh strawberry filling and a sour cream lemon layer with fresh strawberry filling topped with a whipped buttercream. Heaven. Now my birthdays are made up of either cake from Granite Bakery or a chocolate cake with ganache.
Very exciting. Congratulations! I'd say do something together that you won't be able to do once baby gets here. I guess part of this depends on your couple style. If you're laid-back, then a movie and dinner would be nice. If you're more outgoing, then something more extroverted and loud. In terms of food, once again, it goes to your preference - and what might be your current exception, not the norm. And what boobird said, although at this point, it's just slightly awkward.
