Will lemon juice work instead of lime? I can't find limes where I live (for real).
My grandparents ALWAYS had this at their house when I was a kid. Thanks for the memories!
I would rather have a big breakfast than a big lunch OR dinner. I love breakfast. Trying to recall my biggest breakfast, but it's hard to say. This is embarrassing, but I tear it up in Cracker Barrel or Waffle House whenever I travel down south. I never got enough biscuits in NY!
I highly recommend Bonjuk in Flushing on Northern Blvd.
Is it only 3/4 cup of pecans or is it 3/4 cup x 2 of pecans? It appears in the recipe twice. I assuming only 3/4 cup but just checking :).
Pizza borekas - weird but sometimes enjoyable. You never know if you're going to get just sauce and cheese, or sauce and cheese and oregano, or maybe even an olive or two in there.
After a little vinegar soak, the deposits came right off! Perfect!
I was thinking vinegar or lemon! I'm in Israel so the water is really minerally. That makes sense. I'm sure the smell will be horrid but at least I'll have a clean pot!
Wish I could find barkeeper's friend or CLR or Comet. I haven't seen any of that here yet. I used to use Barkeeper's Friend all the time. Maybe they sell it here but I haven't found it.
Thanks so much for the suggestions!
Oh yeah, I forgot bananas. When all other options look awful, I go for a banana.
Dude. The breakfast options at LaGuardia are the WORST. Whenever I flew out of there (used to do it a lot) I either brought breakfast with me or got a bagel and hard boiled eggs from Au Bon Pain. That and a little cream cheese was not great but doable.
Worst airport food was a ham sandwich from the airport San Jose in Costa Rica. Just tasteless and awful. Best? Definitely a huge Jerusalem salad from Aroma cafe in Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv. Fresh salad, fresh bread on the side - delicious.
If any SEaters come to Israel, let me know! I just moved here alone and would love to go food exploring. I'm in Tel Aviv, and haven't been to this market yet. I'll check it out this week!
Autumn Wheat = one of my absolute favorite Kashi cereals! I can eat it plain. Yum.
I actually love parve kishke. Yum!
Another vote for savory rice porridge. Spicy kimchee and octopus jook is my go-to. Chicken soup, too.
Also, I make a drink with cinnamon sticks, ginger, and honey. Just simmer the cinnamon and ginger (sliced), strain, and add honey. It's fantastic hot or cold.
Maybe you can make tortilla soup with your broth?
I should be getting my first order delivered tomorrow. Hoping it's delicious!
Israel has different voltage, so I'll be buying any appliances I need there.
BTW Kenji - The other thing I was considering bringing is my Calphalon 10" covered omelette pan, which I see is on the list! That pan is too nice to leave behind.
Thanks for the comments! I am moving to Israel, so I know I'll be able to buy things pretty easily.
Traveller - True that baking sheets there are smaller, but so are the ovens. I won't be doing much baking at first (no oven), so I'll probable wait on that.
Littauer - That heat diffuser looks interesting!
Dashofginger - I was also thinking about taking my small colander. And my tongs. Can't go without either of those!
Kenji - I have had that list bookmarked for just this reason!
Mr. Nick - When I visited Israel last time, the only cutting board available in the apartment I rented was glass. Ugh. Awful.
So...I'm thinking a good knife or two, small mesh strainer, tongs, measuring spoons/cups, cutting board, and maybe a scale.
Keep the suggestions coming!
I'd go on a date with Talde. No shit.
There is a bakery near me that makes cookies with marshmallows. They do spread but the end result is nice and crunchy.
I am moving to Israel soon and I CAN'T WAIT! Going to be living close to Carmel shuk. Heaven!
Love these! And yes, gargupie they do sell them at Whole Foods. I get mine at EF Bowery. They have them in the refrigerated drink section.
This is awesome. I love Fragoli, and I will definitely be making this!
I have made this several times and it never fails me. Delicious.
I actually love the strawberry juice!
