My husband and I are going to be seeing "Wicked" at the Gershwin Theater (51st and Broadway) on a weeknight. We're looking for a place to grab dinner that isn't overly formal or fine-dining, but that offers something interesting and good. We'll be a little pressed for time, because we're coming off a tour that ends at 6pm and the show is at 8, so something relatively quick would be nice. We just don't want to get stuck in some tourist trap. Any suggestions?
If you could only subscribe to one food magazine, what would it be? I have been thinking about subscribing to one for a while and want to do it, but am having trouble deciding. I have LOVED recipes from Gourmet, I like Cooking Light's content, I am not overly familiar with Bon Appetit, but have cooked lots of their recipes from Epicurious. I have tons of cookbooks but like the seasonal aspect that the magazines bring. Any suggestions?
Here in Virginia, the first thing we see at the farmers' markets are spring onions. Some call them green onions, but they are not scallions. They're like baby onions, with fuller bulbs at the bottom than scallions have and green tops. They are a little milder than bigger onions. I usually chop them up for salads or roast them, but I was wondering if there are any good recipes out there that highlight these, because they are in abundance in early spring (granted, it's no longer early spring) and when you go to the first weeks of the farmers market, they are the most commonly seen veggie.
I am a newspaper reporter who will be covering the inauguration. I also love to bake, especially with whole, healthy ingredients. I would like to make something this weekend that I can pass out on Monday to all of my colleagues who will be covering this with me. We are preparing to survive below-freezing temperatures from 6am until 4pm with no shelter, just the small bags we can carry with us. We'll be doing lots of walking among huge crowds, so we need sustenance! Any suggestions?
Hmm, OK, I'm not trying to imply that I don't have wonderful people around me who love me, but I love to bake. The thing is, whenever I go to the trouble of baking and icing a cake from scratch, it's always for someone else's birthday, so I am usually making their favorite. My birthday is this week and I am considering making my own birthday cake, just to get to make something I chose for once. It feels kind of strange, though. So, my question: Would you bake your own birthday cake, and what cake would you make? Please be specific on details like icing, number of layers, etc ;)
