Would love to get feedback from anyone who took advantage of the $1 Lunch Day offered by LivingSocial today.
After spending the past 6yrs in NYC I am packing my bags for Washington DC, Arlington VA to be exact.
1. How should I spend my last 10 days in the big apple eating?
2. Any good DC blogs? Where should I eat in DC/VA?
My office is interested in having fresh fruit delivered to our office. We are a small office of 10 people. It is rare we are all here. Sometimes it is just one or two people. I don't want a fruit tray or a fruit basket. I was thinking freshdirect but they have a high minimum charge and delivery fee. Any other ideas on who delivers fruit? We are located near Bryant Park. Thanks.
I have a pound of catfish but have no idea what to do with it. It says to treat it like sole. Any recipe suggestions? I don't want to fry it. Thanks SE!!
I just found out I need to make charoset for 12 people Tuesday night. I know it is not a complicated dish but I was wondering if anyone had an easy & yummy recipe. Also how many apples do I need? I don't like raisins. Basically I have finely chopped gala apples, manischewitz and walnuts with honey/cinnamon to taste. Sounds so easy but seems to easy. Your help is appreciated. Thanks!!
Broccoli, Cauliflower and Zucchini are the staple veggies in the household. Normally whatever is on sale at freshdirect these days.
Normally we blanch, saute, steam or roast them. We use red pepper flakes, lemon &/or garlic most often. Always yummy but getting a little bored. We use some cheese grated on top as well but we try to be as healthy as possible. Well I try to be so everyone else is healthy. I see recipes but I was wondering if you have any suggestions or ideas to spice up my vegetables at dinner time?
Tonight we are having Halibut.
I made biscotti once in a cooking class I took, unfortunately I have no idea where the easy and yummy recipe went. Anyone have good recipes to share? Thanks.
I have a small bag of frozen string beans that have been sitting in my freezer. They are thin and small, I got them at Trader Joes a while back. Any suggestions on what I can do with them? I am trying to clean out the fridge/freezer before the new year?
I need to make an appetizer for 6 people. I'm already doing a crudite with dip. Can't do shrimp or crab due to allergies and prefer to stay away from anything with meat because of the big meal ahead of us tomorrow. I was told to do something light. Oh and I can't bring cheese either. To complicate it more I don't think I'll be able to heat anything up when I get to the meal so either something cold or a dish I can prepare ahead of time and serve room temp. I'll only be traveling 20mins or so.
I was thinking stuffed mushroom with spinach and cheese but have never done this before. Anyone have a recipe for stuffed mushrooms that is easy? Any other good appetizer ideas?
Thanks SE!! Happy Turkey Day!1
My new apartment has an electric stove stop. I have been cooking less because of it. Any suggestions, tips or recipes that will help me? Thanks.
I am hosting a casual brunch at my apartment on Sunday. It is a belated house warming party as well as way to kick off Sunday Football. I will have bagels, mimosas, bloody marys and snacks. I am looking for some easy make ahead recipes possibly for Bloodies, Quiche or anything else that is easy to prep. I am happy to do stuff on Saturday so I don't have too much to do Sunday morning. This is informal so no sit down meal, just some good food and drinks with friends to welcome fall into NYC. Thanks for your help.
Was thinking over the weekend of what we could do with potatoes besides bake them or slice them up and bake em. What about throwing them up on the bbq? I thought wrapping them in tin foil like corn with a few stabs of the fork might work. What about slicing them thick and throwing them directly on the grill with a little olive oil.
Has anyone done this? Suggestions? Other creative ways to cook a potato? Thanks SE!!
have about 6 ears of corn left over from the weekend. don't think they will stay fresh until next saturday. any suggestions or recipes on what i could make with them? no access to a bbq until the weekend so the cooking magic needs to happen in my oven or stove top. thanks SE.
I am looking to grill up some halibut this weekend. Last time we did it in a lemon caper marinade then straight on to the grate to cook. It was good but a little dry. Any one have recommendatoins on grilling fish, specifically halibut as that is what we ordered? Note it is a charcoal grill. Thanks SE!!
i just moved to a new apt and i need a new knife set. my dad has a set from an infomercial that he bought probably 10 years ago that i love. my boyfriend has an ok set with a few really good knives he has bought through out the years. i am looking to get a knife block and hope to spend about $100. i've looked around at bed bath beyond, target and macys. does anyone have a brand to suggest? a specific set? thanks SE.
My roommate and I are going to do a Brunch HouseWarming on a Sunday in May. We are thinking Sunday Funday rather then a Saturday night cocktail party. Granted we live in a tiny NYC apartment we still want to have friends over to see our new digs.
I am thinking bagels, bloodies, mimosas and muffins etc. I'm loving Cava with juice right now. The typical easy brunch stuff. Anyone have good recipes for drinks or other easy brunch food ideas.
i need to send gifts to various departments such as IT, travel, ups guy etc. last year we sent one group breakfast from a local bagel shop and a nother small group edible arrangements. i am looking for new interesting ideas on what we can give this year. i would do the bagel idea again but one of the groups only has 2 people in it. thoughts? our budget is $25-$75 depending on who is receiving the gift. thanks.
each year i am given the task of making yams with sweet potatoes and marshmallows. i know many people cringe at this idea but many of us like it. for my family it is more about the tradition then the taste.
anyone have any good recipes or suggestions on how i should make it this year? do you prefer fresh sweet potatoes or canned yams?
The bf and I are planning on making tomato sauce tonight for the first time together. We want to make something to go along with it-he said meatballs I said eggplant. Obviously very different thoughts. I mentioned turkey meatballs, his face was priceless.
Does anyone have recipes they can suggest or tips for the sauce? I'm going to make garlic bread, anything else that will go good with our meal.
Thanks for your help.
My office is having a cinco de mayo party this year. Actually we are having an uno dy mayo party. This year we would like to have Sangrita. It is probably easiest to make it fresh but can I buy it pre made or a mix?
I am in NYC. Do you know of anywhere I can pick up Sangrita? Thanks.
My aunt gave me all the left over cooked asparagus from passover dinner. I have a box of chicken stock in the cabinet so I am thinking of making a soup of sorts. I also have some cannelini beans I can throw in. Any suggestions?
does anyone have a good passover recipe? i am going to my aunts house as i do every year and would like to bring something. her food is ok but we have the same meal every year. i haven't found any good recipes. i'll take any course.
what are you making?
I'm going to visit my brother, sister n law and adorable 13 month nephew next weekend. Besides taking care of the little guy they both work, oh and he just started walking so he is an extra handfull now.
During my visit I would like to make some meals for them to freeze so they don't have to order in so much or stir up pasta late at night for themselves. What food/dishes freeze best? Thanks for your help.
What brand do you like? Which is your favorite product? I like the buffalo chix nuggets from whole foods a lot. Chop em up in a salad, it is delicious. I didn't like the morning star breakfast sausage patties. What do you recommend when buying a meat substitute?
I am looking for an alternative to butter. I don't use it often but when I do I would like to use one of the healthier versions that are all over the shelves these days. The one I am thinking about is SmartButter. Any thoughts on this product or any other suggestions? It is mostly for toast or pasta.
