Hi all! I'll be heading to Toronto in mid-June for the Broken Social Scene/Pavement show on Olympic Island (anyone going?). Anyway, my friend and I were hoping for some recommendations for relatively cheap places to go for dinner on Friday night and breakfast on Saturday. We're not super stingy but I don't feel like dropping $20 on my entree if I don't have to, you know? We're staying at a place on the Harbourfront, which, based on looking at several maps, we're going to have to travel a little for something cheap-ish but we're game. Also, is Toronto an easy city to travel around without driving? Thanks in advance...
In about two weeks, I'm having the right side of my thyroid gland removed. While I've been waiting for this surgery to happen, I've been reading various articles on the procedure and what to expect afterwards. Obviously, since I'm posting this question on Serious Eats, I like my food. I've read that anything with soy in it is not good for your thyroid and it seems like a lot of prepared food has some form of soy in it. I've also read that no matter how sensibly some people try to eat, they still gain weight when they've got a thyroid issue of some sort.
I meet with my doctor Monday, and I'll probably bombard him with questions then, but, in the meantime, I was hoping that somone on Serious Eats could give me any advice on how they've dealt with this. Thanks!
I'm moving to the Cincinnati at the end of August (Clifton Area to be exact) and I was wondering what restaurants would be worth my hard-earned money? I'm currently in Columbus so I'm familiar with Graeter's and Skyline (obviously) but I want to know more! I'm also not big on ritzy, expensive eating out, unless the parents are paying, so anything that's a good value and tasty is aces in my book!
I just entered a cookie contest at the law firm I work at. I was hoping to enter more than one kind but the powers-that-be won't allow that. It's a pretty conservative firm and their tastes seem to be pretty safe (just based on the catering orders I've seen around the office) but I don't just want to bake chocolate chip cookies. I've thought about making Chocolate Rads, Lime Meltaways, Madeleines, Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookies w/ pistachios...etc. Anyone have suggestions for a cookie that will blow the competition away? Thanks for your suggestions!
