If you ever come to the Phoenix, AZ area, you have to go to d'Lish in Scottsdale and get the California Club breakfast sandwich. Eggs, bacon, turkey, tomato, avocado, pepper jack, light cream cheese and pesto on delicious artisan bread... it has ruined me for any future breakfast sandwiches I may have.
I haven't tried it, but Wendy's even has a breakfast burger with egg on it. The paninis are good, but too greasy. And the breakfast sandwich on artisian bread is my favorite bfast sandwich.
Or if you didn't want to go the full eggplant parm route, try adding chopped eggplant to lasagna, OR use thinly sliced eggplant in place of the lasagna noodles. I love the flavor eggplant gives to dishes.
And most squashes are pretty yummy and go over pretty easily.
@suburbanfoodie - We had the same thing happen... but my aunt then cooked the rest of the turkey in the microwave. No lie.
The best dish: The green bean casserole made with real cream and cheese instead of canned soup. And bacon!
My rolls were the bomb, thanks to Serious Eats talkers suggesting recipes. Thanks guys!
Hominy is one of my favorite foods. Ever. Comfort food.
Yum, thanks for all the recipe recommendations. I (stupidly, now that I think about it) didn't realize that a stand mixer was replaceable with good old elbow grease. I'm going to try out a few of these and see which is the winner!
Jellybeans! I am not picky about what kind, or flavor (as long as they're not the spice variety), but I love Easter because it's officially jelly bean season. I'll even eat the licorice flavored black ones.
The first time I've ever had a mango was on the beach in mexico, where we bought them on a stick, peeled and sliced like a flower, then covered in chili powder and salt. Amazing.
The Red Stripe grilled cheese at Red Stripe in Providence, RI: Thick slices of bread, with proscuitto, pear, and basil, grilled to deliciousness. Yum yum yum.
Generic choices: Bhan Mi, Tortas, Cubans...
I'm a huge sandwich fan, though. It's hard for me to judge.
SeattleRadChick - I thought the same thing! It looks so close to perfect raw cookie dough, I was tempted to reach my finger out to try some.
Papago Brewing in Scottsdale, AZ also has a great canned beer. I just can't remember the darn name of it.
I could eat pizza for every meal and probably never get tired of it. I'd miss other foods, but that would be the sacrifice that I'd have to make.
I think us Phoenicians need to compile yet another list of amazing places to go around here. I'm always looking for new restaurants to visit. My recommendation: The Orange Table in Scottsdale. They have jalapeno pancakes!
Stuffing stuffing and more stuffing! I think it's because I really only get to eat it a few times a year (Stovetop doesn't come close!), so I like to fill up on that. I'll eat a little bit of everything, but stuffing is the only thing on the plate that I truly love.
Animal Style Fries = True Love.
I'm with Stripey - ALWAYS a Caesar Salad. I think it says a lot about the restaurant.
Bourdain! He looks like he was one of the bad kids, while Colicchio looks far too wholesome for my taste.
Holy... I feel like this might be my Mecca. Bread and spanish meats? Sign me up.
They are actually reformatting the new lids so that this doesn't happen. Ask for a bigger straw until this happens and it won't get smooshed.
I wish that they sold smaller bags of Kisses. I'd like to try all of these different flavors, but not enough to buy a big bag full of them...
@ megannesta: Don't be so disheartened. I'm a former Rhode Islander living in Arizona which is a newish market for DD. I've been to a few of the Dunks out here and it's just... not the same. Sigh.
I miss my giant iced coffee and cheap bagel sandwiches....
And according to Thursday Night Smackdown, PB Slices were the brainchildren of students at Oklahoma State:
Uhm... what? Bananas are great for diets. You get your fruit serving and some fiber all rolled into one!
Bananas =/= Peanut Butter.
Thanks for everyone's advice! And thanks to producestories for the references, I'll be sure to check them out!
Bloody mary made with tomato juice AND v-8, vodka (natch), lots of hot sauce, lots of pepper, horseradish, and garlic or jalapeno stuffed green olives.
I like it spicy!
