I do not like Yelp at all. It is not geared toward people who actually know and appreciate good food. It is a catch-all for finding anything in any given place.

Like hsryan, I usually check in with CH before I venture to a new destination. I have rarely been disappointed!

I am perplexed by your ending this query in a preposition.

So Long, Folks (and See You Next Week)

Good luck with your new adventure Adam! I will certainly miss your efforts to keep me in line over in Talk. Not that I have been naughty of late. You will be missed! Many of us considered you to be the best part of SE. Congratulations!

Smoking a Whole, Frozen Pig?

Something is STINKIN' in here, and it's not LARD! How was it seasoned? what was the occasion? You expect me to believe you threw the damn thing on the smoker and THEN posted a question??? I hope you eat the tainted pork and GO AWAY.

Cakespy: Conversation Heart Cream Pie

Way to kiss up Teachertalk! Yes, variety is the spice of life. As is each individual's definition of "serious" eats.

When I first signed into SE, the content was much more "serious" and the banter was passionate, discerning, and inclusive. There were lengthy debates and intense disagreements. However, at the end of each day, I closed my computer knowing that I picked up a great tip and a greater knowledge of an ingredient new to me. Oh, we all know we had a propensity to veer off topic on a regular basis, but as a group, we did a fairly decent job of keeping posters from taking themselves too seriously and focus on the topic.

These days, I am rarely compelled to spend as much time on SE. As SE has grown and changed their management style, it has become difficult to take it "seriously". Just my opinion.

All that said, this cake is something SLop would make.

Help me name my food blog!

HAHAHAHAHA! @arm, you crack me up!

I am around Pavvie. Just don't spend much time Talk. Some of these topics give me hives. Mauve sounds perfect!

Labor inducing foods!

Hey Pavvie! I have missed you! What color crayons do you think will induce an idiot unwilling to wait for nature to take it's course?

Fresh Caught Salmon

Okay. I ended up grilling it on a cedar plank. Drizzled the fish with olive oil. added a bit of fresh ground pepper and sea salt. When I took it off the grill (Med-rare) I let it rest then gave it a little shower of fresh lime juice. It was really delicious. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
