Video: Visiting The Bent Spoon in Princeton, New Jersey

Crazy! I just saw a friend from High School in the video because she works (worked?) there. I've only been there once but it was good ice cream. Not going to lie though, growing up in the immediate area you don't really go there often, especially since they haven't been open as long as the more established ice cream shops in town.

nutella or prosciutto. it's a tough call because i love them both.

Cook the Book: 'The Ciao Bella Book of Gelato and Sorbetto'

I was in Assisi, Italy touring the country prior to World Youth Day 2005 in Koln, Germany. The gelato place was right across from the Basilica of Santa Chiara, and it was beautiful. To this day, Assisi is my favorite place.

Philadelphia: Pizzeria Stella Reviewed in the 'Philadelphia Inquirer'

@HeartofGlass My family compares that type of pepperoni to those rubber cup toys you pushed down and they sprung back up at you. Conte's in Princeton serves similar looking pepperoni pizza, but that is just me assuming based upon the picture. I have never been to Pizzeria Stella.

New Jersey Dispatch: The Great Wall Supermarket

This supermarket is literally less than a minute from my house, and I absolutely love it! My mother and I are in there quite frequently and it is fantastic. We're not asian, but the people who work there and even the people who shop there frequently recommend brands and such to buy. This is awesome to see it there!

I actually do peal banana's like this, especially when i can't get the other end and don't want a mushy mess.

Cook the Book: 'Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries & Shakes'

bleu cheese, medium well, chipotle mayo, fresh tomato/lettuce and onion straws. Obviously the bun needs to be slightly toasted.

Hoagie Haven in Princeton, NJ: Phat Ladies, Chocolate Cheesesteaks, and Happy Undergrads

Personally, i've always loved the Sanchez with Sanchez sauce, but when in P-town i usually am there to hang out with friends, get Thomas Sweets, or head over to Conte's. Then again i'm working on the campus this summer so I'll have to head over to Hoagie Haven for lunch...

It's a heart attack on a bun, but everyone loves it

Cook the Book: ''Wichcraft'

I've always been a fan of the prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and roasted red peppers on a nicely toasted italian bread with balsamic vinegar.

Can you tell this is my favorite sandwich?

New Jersey Dispatch: PA Dutch Farmers Market

So i live, literally, ten minutes down the road from this market and it is delicious. It's not at all surprising for there to be a big influx of high school students if there is an early release from school. The food is truly great! In fact, I planned on meeting people there for lunch on friday.

Food Suggestions pre/post Broadway Show

Thanks everyone! I just got home, and we didn't eat afterward, but before hand we grabbed sandwiches at Cosi. I must say my Wasabi Roast Beef (wasabi mayo, sesame glaze, pickled ginger, lettuce, and the obvious roast beef) was delicious, as was my friend's sandwich (turkey, brie, and honey mustard).

Who would've known that this chain could be so good?

@andrearode @kfarrel3 @chapsholic Thank you all for your wonderful recommendations, my friends and I will definitely consider al of your recommendations.

NYC must eats (allergy friendly)

On Wednesday a few friends and myself are headed into the City to visit the Jane Austen Exhibit at the Morgan Library and wander around a bit. I hoped someone could provide a suggestion regarding a place we can stop for lunch.

There are four of us going, two are vegetarians and one has a garlic allergy. I'd love to find some location which could cater to the carnivores, vegetarians, and those with the uncomfortable allergy. For obvious reasons, Italian is out of the question, but we are open to all other types of cuisine.

Thank you for all help provided!

Help Finding a Traditional Moroccan Dish

I am working on a presentation on Morocco, and would love to make/try some traditional dishes. Can anyone direct me towards one that isn't too difficult or complicated to make? I would particularly love one which can be served cold, but I am open to anything.

Thank you so much!

Food Suggestions pre/post Broadway Show

So I'm going with a few friends to see Spring Awakening at the Eugene O'Neill Theater ( 230 West 49th street) on January 2nd, and I wondered if anyone could suggest some good food places nearby.

We'll obviously take a trip to go eat, but we didn't want to have to trek halfway across the city. Also, I think it's important to note that we are lowly college students, so we can't do anything too expensive.

Thank you for all of your help!
