I decided to make challah last week because it was Rosh Hashana, Jewish New Year. I've made challah before, but this time it was a disaster. It did not rise, baked to be dense and chewy and ended up in the garbage.
have a foolproof recipe? Please share.
Or look at the photos of mine and let me know what I did wrong.
I'll be visiting Nashville, TN for the first time for 4th of July. Looking for casual/authentic fun places to eat. Cuisine doesn't matter: I love all food! :)
I'm traveling to Madrid in the middle of April. I'm excited b/c I rented an apartment with a friend, so we'll be able to cook a few meals. But I'd love to hear your recommendations for inexpensive, authentic restaurants in the city.
I'm looking for in-person (as opposed to on line) food photography or styling classes (preferrably a workshop) in Washington DC, Philadelphia or NYC area.
If you know any, could you please share?
I was thinking about taking one at the Washington School of Photography in DC, but changed my mind.
Just curious, how would you feel if you came into a restaurant and saw a display of fresh seafood on ice? I guess it might be similar to seeing fish swimming in a tank?
Here is a photo of what I'm talking about.
Question for y'all :)
I'm making a noodle kugel for a friend (she's the only one in her family who likes it), and was thinking about making it in a muffin tin. Do you think it'd be possible/smart to freeze some of the cooked kugel? Or is it weird to freeze dairy things?
here is the recipe I'm using.
Thank you for your advice!
Do you twitter? Looks like everyone is doing it.
I've been saying forever that I will not be joining Facebook or twitter, but actually might possibly try out twitter for a bit :) (just for my food stuff).
Question: what name should I use?
1) my actual name? Olga
2) my blog name? Mango & Tomato
3) or my email name, which I use to leave comments sometimes? orchidgirl1979
Any advice as to how to proceed from those of you who already use twitter?
I don't have kids, but if I did, I think they would love this simple popsicle recipe I came up with (I know I do!).
Puree together 1/2 melon and 1 mango. Pour into ice cube container. Stick toothpics into the individual "popsicles" and freeze. DELICIOUS. And you can use whatever fruit/berry combination you want.

I received a gift of 3 gourmet marshmallows: caramel, chocolate and lemon flavored. Other than eating them on their own, adding them to hot chocolate (in this weather??), what can I do with them?
Ideally looking for something I can make and either share with others or freeze for the future.
Last week I made a grilled cheese sandwich with Black ham and tomatoes. It was just a few steps up from the regular bread and American cheese combo (I used Swiss cheese).
What are your favorite ways of making the regular grilled cheese sandwiches a bit more special?
Do you love farmer's markets? How often do you visit them? Do you always buy something?
I went to Eastern Market in DC last Sunday and just browsed this time around instead of buying anything. Sometimes it makes me feel slightly guilty :)
Last weekend I made egg in a hole and although it was tasty, I feel like it could have been better.
Anyone has a better technique that they are willing to share that will result in a runnier yolk?
This past Monday I attended a fun event hosted by Stouffer's and Trish Magwood to introduce their new line of frozen food.
Some of it was good, some of it not so much.
Maybe I'm just not the write audience?
How often do you buy frozen meals?
I have a $10 gift card to Sur La Table. My kitchen is pretty small, but I pretty much have everything I want/need.
Any idea what I can spend it on? Thanks!
I know Purim is over, but I failed at making hamentashen again! (http://mangotomato.blogspot.com/2009/03/hamentashen-another-disaster.html)
Do you have any fail proof recipes? Thank you!
For the longest time I've been saying that Idon't like fennel. Then yesterday, after testing a recipe for fennel salad I discovered that I was wrong!!!
What foods have you thought you did not like, only to discover that you actually liked them (or at least did not hate them)?
I made Pasta Primavera earlier this week...and something was just missing.
Any ideas on how I can improve it? Thanks!
I'm traveling to Savannah, GA for the first time for MLK weekend.
I would love to hear your recommendations for places to see, visit, restaurants to try out, etc.
I'll be staying in the Historical District and be car-free.
Thank y'all in advance :)
Not sure if this is the right board, but I'm thinking I might need to invest in a SLR camera to improve my photo skills and to possibly try to turn this hobby into a food styling/magazine career.
Any recommendations? I cureently have a Cannon PowerShot 1000, but all the classes seem to require an SLR. Thank you!
feel free to email me directly.
Just had a great lunch in Rasika
What are your favorite places for Restaurant Week in DC?
