Our first freeze is here. I have about 15 pounds of small to medium green tomatoes and no idea what to do with them. Everyone says, "fried green tomatoes" but I am looking for something more interesting.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions,
I have a bunch of small sugar pumpkins - straight out of my garden - and I'd love to make a good pumpkin pie. Anyone have a really good recipe? I'd love to hear about it.
I have been on the edge of my seat for weeks - reading op ed columns, watching cable news and wondering who will win the presidential race. The big night is finally upon us and we will (hopefully) have a president elect before the night is through.
So here is my question: What are you going to cook for dinner or make for snacking on election night? What are the criteria for perfect election night foods?
I'm traveling to Santa Fe next week and am looking for suggestions. Any ideas?
Last week, I ventured into trying to make a tasty black bean burger. I found a couple of recipes on the internet and both were okay, but really nothing special.
Anyone make black bean burgers - or burgers with any variety of beans? If so, what can I do to punch up the basic: beans, onions, garlic, breadcrumbs, cheese optional, jalapeno, optional.
It all tastes fine, but I want something really delicious.
My sister and brother-in-law have had a rough couple of weeks. She had a melanoma removed and skin grafts (all is well but she is sore) and he just had a close encounter with a car while riding his motorcycle - he is okay too, but really, really sore.
If they were close by, I'd be making meals, taking over beer and wine, etc. But I am in Texas and they are in Florida.
Does anyone have ideas on good food gifts to send long distance? I am game to make something or to order something online. I am just not sure what would be good. He is going to be fairly inactive for a while until he heals enough to start therapy, and she's working full time (at Williams Sonoma) so I think a little food contribution would be appreciated.
I just opened the Serious Eats site, and saw the recipe for Sloppy Joe's. That recipe sounds good, but I immediately dug out MY recipe for sloppy joe's to compare the two, and decide how I'll make SJ's this week.
Now, I haven't made SJ's in years, maybe 10 or more, so clearly this article made an impact.
So my questions are:
How many of you decided to make that recipe soon, like this week?
Who will make sloppy joe's today? Who will make sloppy joe's, but using their own recipe or creativity?
I am going to make my first braised duck tonight - for an early celebration. What side dishes go well with duck?
I'm coming to Manhattan this week and have reservations at Nobu, however I've seen very mixed reviews of Nobu.
So, I am looking for alternative restaurants for Sushi
1. Do you eat at the food carts that dot NYC streets? If so, what do you like and what do you avoid?
2. I would also love to know where to get a really good hot dog.
When you are visiting an upscale restaurant for the first time, what do you order, and/or, how do you decide what to order?
Do you order the specials?
Do you ask the wait staff for their recommendations?
I am about to try three great restaurants 3-star or better, and don't want to feel overwhelmed by the menu choices. I am going to look at the menus online but am conscious that the menus change.
I am going to NYC with family. I get to choose two "nice" dinners out - price really isn't an issue. I've been reading the lists of top NYC restaurants and, of course, they all sound fabulous. I am thinking of La Bernaden and Babbo - but I am not married to either of them.
What about small cafes for breakfast and lunch in Manhattan?
