We are renovating our kitchen, and it won't be done for at least 5 weeks. I have a makeshift kitchen that includes a microwave, toaster oven, fridge and freezer. But no stove or oven. While going out to eat is fun, I'd love some ideas for at-home dinners that are feasible with our current "kitchen." So far I have thought of cheese plate, and salad. Any ideas for no cook dinners? Thanks!
I'm expecting my first baby in a little less than 2 months, and I want to start cooking & freezing some meals now that I can defrost for dinner once the baby is here. Anybody have ideas for healthy, vegetarian meals that will work well for this? So far I have thought of squash soup and.. that's it. Also, can I keep food in the freezer for 2-3 months or will it be blah when I defrost it? Thanks for your help!
Yesterday I bought pizza dough to make pizza for dinner. Well, that was dumb because it was 112 degrees here in NJ and I didn't want to turn the oven on when I got home. I can either use it tonight - it has cooled down to a still miserable 98 degrees - or do something else. Is there anything I can do with pizza dough that does not involve baking? Can I make grilled pizza using a grill pan? Can I freeze it at this point? Any other ideas? I just don't want it to go to waste. Thank you!
Going to Atlantic City for the weekend. Where to eat??
I'm planning my best friend's bachelorette party in Vegas. Lots of places have pre-fixe options that make it easy to organize dinner for 10 people. We are going to do one that is about $50pp, which seems like an unnecessary amount to pay for dinner. So, I wanted to see if you serious eaters had any other ideas for a less expensive dinner on the second night. It should be a good, fun restaurant, good for groups, good food, with a pre-fixe or another easy way to split the bill. Help!!!
Friday's recipe of the day in my How to Cook Everything desk calendar was for tortilla chips. I thought that would be perfect to go with the guac that I planned to make for the superbowl. I baked them instead of fried them - brushed corn tortillas with canola oil, cut them and baked for about 8 minutes at 400 degrees. They were fine, but I thought they could have been better. What can I do to add some flavor? Also I thought they seemed stale.. Any suggestions?
Last night I made butternut squash lasagna using a recipe that I found on cookinglight.com (lasagna noodles, normal sauce & cheese mixture, butternut squash, spinach & onions). It was really good!
I've never made lasagna before so this has opened up a whole new world, potentially. What else can I put between those lasagna noodles?
I got married last year and one of my friends just sent me a pressure cooker that I forgot I registered for. What can I make? I can pick up some ingrediants on my way home from work if you give me some yummy ideas. Thanks!
My sister's birthday is Dec. 26, but she is pregnant and due Dec. 25 (yes I know that is Christmas, we are Jewish though). My mom wants to celebrate her birthday next week when we are all together for Thanksgiving, since on her actual birthday she will probably be somewhat busy. I volunteered to make the cake and I want to make it AWESOME since my sister is my best friend, and I am so happy for her and she deserves an awesome cake.
I need help though. I am a beginner baker so I need an easy yet super impressive recipe. I want to make a very moist chocolate cake. I haven't settled on a frosting flavor but something good! And then any other ideas you have! Thanks so much Serious Eat community!
My husband's birthday is tomorrow, and he is not big on birthday cake. I'd love to make a pie, but I'm short on time. Does anyone have a great, easy recipe for a fruity/pie-like dessert? Maybe a tart of some sort? At this point I am not opposed to using store bought crust. I know he will appreciate it as long as it's not from a bakery and tastes delicious. Thanks!
Hi! My 1 year wedding anniversary is in a few weeks and I'm looking for restaurant suggestions. Something not too pricey ($20 or less entree) in any neighborhood, although the west side is preferred. Somewhere romantic where we can drink lots of wine and eat great food would be right on the mark!!
