I can't come up with what to make for dinner this week. What is the best thing you've made lately?
I have some leftover creme fraiche from a banana cream pie recipe (side note, fantastic recipe if anyone is looking for one). I'm looking for some ways to use it up! Thanks!
I'm looking for a recipe for the Scottish/English style Oatcakes or "biscuits"; they are usually thin and only slightly sweet.
I appreciate any ideas! Thanks!
I used to live around the corner from Vanessa's Dumplings in NYC. My life has been altered for the worse since moving away from the 5/$1 dumplings and veggie sesame pancakes.
I've eaten dumplings at Shan Dong but they aren't the type I'm looking for. Does anyone have a recommendation for a place that I could get delicious pan friend dumplings??
I have many recipes bookmarked to preserve tomatoes, zucchini, pickles, peaches, etc (aka summer bounty), but do not have anything for corn. I'd love to save fresh, sweet corn for the winter months. What is the best way?
I'm going to be tailgating next week for the first game of football season (can't believe it is that time of year again!).
We are tailgating with one gluten intolerant person. They are happy to simply take the bun of the hot dog and that sort of thing, but I'd like to have some options. Thoughts?
I also want to make gluten free dessert- I usually make brownies for tailgates- maybe almond cookies this time. Any other suggestions?
I subscribe to a few food magazines and always want to cook many of the featured recipes. Once I close the magazine, I always have a hard time remembering which issue the recipe was in or just forget about it all together.
Is there a good way to organize these recipes- type them up? tear them out? I'm curious if anyone has a good solution.
I'm planning on throwing a BBQ on Saturday for my boyfriend's birthday and some friends that are in town. I'm semi-new to the area and am looking for a great place to grill and hang out for the afternoon.
We spent July 4th around Lake Merritt which was awesome, except that the geese (and their droppings) really had control of the area.
Any suggestions appreciated! And feel free to stop by if you see a big group grilling ;)
My brother is coming to visit for the first time (I just moved to the Bay Area this past summer) on his way to Australia but can only be here for about 24 hours. I want to cram so much into those 24 hours- but what can't we miss?
I would like to join a CSA in the future (I know certain places only have specific times to sign up), but would like to know what the average cost is. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks!
My best friend wants to go out for dessert and a drink for her birthday. Does anyone have any recommendations for a cute cafe or somewhere with delicious desserts? If they don't serve cocktails, no problem, we can head somewhere afterwards!
I'm going on a vacation next week to Barcelona and Madrid (with a day trip to Toledo). If anyone has any recomendations for places to eat--I'm looking for lunch, dinner, tapas (or the catalan version), bars, etc--any suggestion is appreciated!
A friend of mine is coming to NYC from California (the bay area), and I'd like to take her some where that is very "new york." I don't want to do Katz's or a place like that, but a restaurant that may be hard to find outside the city. I'm drawing a blank.....any suggestions would be appreciated!
Also, we don't have unlimited budget.
I am very sorry to say that I have never baked with vanilla beans before, though I am an avid baker. I have heard that it is cost effective to buy them online in bulk and save them in the fridge. Is this true? If so, does anyone have a recommendation of a website to buy from or a certain store (I am in NYC). Thanks!
My boyfriend and I are celebrating being together for two years, and would like to go out for romantic, special meal. Unfortunately, we do not have an unlimited budget and would like to go somewhere were entrees are around $25-30. Any suggestions would be great!
