I need some help from the local SEer's. I am recently engaged, and my fiancee and I are looking for wedding venues in the Westchester/Hudson Valley area. Nearly all of our guests will be traveling from out of state and NYC is out of the questions---they don't "do" NY Metro bridges and tunnels. Has anyone had a great experience at a wedding in the WC/HV area? We want great food and an unusual venue---if we could bring in an outside caterer, that would be preferred, but we know it's unlikely. All suggestions are welcome!
I ate my first honeycrisp of the season today! Found them in a local grocery store in Astoria. That's right....fall is officially upon us.
Hurray for honeycrisps!
I have a pretty specific question, and I hope someone might be able to help. I am looking for Mexican breading or batter mixes (i.e. Golden Dip, Krusteaz, Dixie Fry, etc) that come in bulk sizes for foodservice. Does anyone know were I might be able to find them in the NYC area? Boroughs are fine. Thanks!
My chicken breasts need a little kick in their boneless, skinless behinds. I love them during the week because they're fast and versatile, but I'm getting tired of the same old stirfries, piccatas, paillards, and grills. What's your favorite way to turn chicken breasts on their head?
I need to make a potato salad tomorrow using salsa verde as a dressing. I'm looking for some add-ins to create a little bit of texture, but still keeping it very simple. I'm thinking a little crisped chorizo? I love the crunch of celery, but I think it will overwhelm the tomatillos. Any suggestions?
Haha...I love a good classified ad! I'm making tomato and goat cheese tarts for lunch on Sunday, and I'm stumped as to what to serve with them. I'm thinking a lightly-dressed salad and some soup (the tarts are small), but I haven't ironed out any other details. One of my guests is sensitive to dairy, so I want to avoid any cream-based soups. Any thoughts?
In a show of good faith and holiday cheer, my boyfriend and I recently adopted a stray dog. We couldn't find a home for him and didn't have the heart to bring him to the pound. During the past few weeks, he has proven to be an entertaining, albeit slightly unruly, 60 pound addition to our family. For Thanksgiving, he showed HIS thankfulness by eating:
An entire apple pie
A tray of streusel-topped pear muffins
A half-dozen bagels
A bowl of sweet and spicy pecans
Giblets, picked clean from the bag
Crudite, asparagus only
Luckily, this was over several days, he didn't get into anything harmful, and we've learned to keep all human food wayyyy out of his reach. But it leads me to my next question....
Any furry friends ever get into your holiday eats?
I bought a great bottle of red wine yesterday, and I'm ashamed/impressed to say that the bf and I only finished half. (We can restrain ourselves....who knew??). I never know how to store red wine once it's been opened. Is it alright to stopper it and leave it at room temp? For how long? I'm a food safety nut, and I don't want any germies in my shiraz.
