Win Two Tickets to the Lucky Rice Grand Feast, May 3rd

There are too many great Asian places in the city. I am not Vietnamese but the one place in NYC that I always crave is Thai Son. No pretensions, just really delicious and cheap as Asian food should be. How many Asian mothers do you know fuss about place settings? None, they are too busy trying to feed you everything. A big hot bowl of Pho is true comfort food. And very few places leave two people stuffed with a healthy meal for under 15 dollars.

Cereal Rant: Why Buzzfeed Is Wrong, These Cereals Should Not Be Obliterated

Agree on almost every point. Buzzfeed got it all wrong!!!
I don't like Apple Jacks though. Grapenuts is awesome and I love love love Corn Flakes, Chex, Special K and cream of wheat.

Cook the Book: 'The Kimchi Cookbook'

I had no idea so many of the foods I love went through the fermentation process - wine, kimchi (any pickled veggies), kefir (any yogurt product), cheese, chocolate??? Also some of my odd favs like marmite and poi??? But I would say I would be loyal to my chinese heritage and say 1000 year old egg if that is indeed considered fermented.

Bake the Book: Vintage Cakes

Simple (but moist) yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Classic - reminds me of my childhood - so thrilled to have such a treat on my birthday.

Survey: What Pizza Topping Is a Dealbreaker for You?

I love Pineapple but will never eat it on a pizza. GROSS. I rather go hungry.

Poll: Do You Eat Ice Cream In The Cold?

I prefer to eat ice cream in the cold (ok, maybe not when its below freezing outside...) because the ice cream doesn't melt or drip! I hate paying for ice cream and getting a milkshake in a cup. And who can really enjoy the ice cream when you're too busy wiping the dripping sticky mess off your hands as you walk down the street? I love all the new ice cream trucks out this year!

The United States of Pizza: Hawaii

Perfect timing. I'm off to Hawaii next week Adam. I'll try to hit some of these spots and report back my thoughts.

Does Your Grocery Store Have You Crying Tears of Joy?

I'm a die-hard city girl but then I went upstate for college to Buffalo. To this day the one thing that really makes me reconsider life in the 'burbs is the possibility of shopping weekly at a Wegmans (Tops was also great but only the International Tops). Yes, I know - I'm a little pathetic...

Sweet Potato Fries -- Who Likes These Things?

I been a bit busy lately so I haven't been able to get my daily dose of Adam's words but now that I have I'm sorry to say that I might have to stop being your friend Adam....I LOVE SWEET POTATO FRIES!

Great Tips on Choosing Rotisserie Chicken

My local D'Agostinos makes excellent rotisserie chicken - very juicy and tasty. I agree, you have to go when it's peak shopping times - they'll have every row of the oven filled up with birds and they can't cook it fast enough for the customers waiting on line at the deli counter to snap them up as soon as the timer goes off and the ladies take them off the rods and pack them in the containers. I notice during non-peak hours there might be just 2 or 3 dried looking birds spinning around. They make really good Italian and Spanish spiced ones also. And with my Dag points I can get a whole cooked chicken that will last at least two meals for less than 5 bucks!

Don't Want a Whole Bottle of Wine? Try a Can

It is gorgeous! I hope it comes out in the market some time.

Photo of the Day: Elephant Spout on Oil Bottle

I have never used grapeseed oil and probably never will have use for it but I am soooo getting that!!!

Photo of the Day: Bacon Not Done Yet

That's about the cutest gross thing I have ever seen.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Bacon of the Month Club

I like my thck cut bacon to be crispy along the edges while the middle is cooked through to a beautiful browned shade.

We're Giving Away a Truly Great Steak This Weekend

Del Frisco's New York - if you have the money to splurge then this is the place to get your steak. I start with the fried oysters and the mountain of onion rings to accompany a couple of cocktails. The rib eye with the skillet potatoes and onions, sauteed mushrooms and spinach sides get washed down with Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon for dinner. The meat is juicy and the portions are huge. By the end of the meal I'm always so stuffed I never get to dessert.

Where to eat in Italy? Can anyone recommend good trattorias?

I agree, I will be in Florence and Siena in September also and love The Food Lover's Guide to Florence. She also has a blog now and there are some updates to the book on it. It's worth getting if you will be in the Florence area for a bit.

Best Chai Latte in NYC

I've been searching for the best cup of Chai Latte. So far I like the one from Balthazar Bakery the best but the chai flavor is not strong and its a tad too sweet. Does anyone know a good place for Chai Lattes? Or a good recipe?

Las Vegas: buffet recommendations?

I will be in Vegas next weekend and have reservation for Bouchon at the Venetian. Any recommendations for buffets? I hear the Bellagio has a good one. Also, we won't have a car but is there any recommendations for non-hotel places to eat? Local favorites or just good reasonably priced food? Thanks a lot.
