Definitely curry with pre-made paste. My go-to clean-out-the-fridge meal...
Miya's in New Haven. Not quite authentic, but fun and delicious.
caramelized onion and ricotta salata calzones
@TheKaz a bit out of the way, but you can't forget Zuppardi's!
any recommendations on what types of black tea taste best?
Time is on my Side- Rolling Stones (still in a mad men sort of mood...)
count me in for the Gourmet nostalgia
Fantastic recipe! It might be my pride as an inexperienced cook talking, but this is exactly what I want when I'm craving tomato soup. I did make a few minor changes- I halved the amount of heavy cream, and replaced one of the cans of peeled roma tomatoes with crushed tomatoes with basil (tuttorosso brand, for those who are particular about tomato brands). Though I agree, this makes WAY more than 4 servings- but I won't mind the leftovers with this one. Thanks, Blake!
i know better, and i never give in, but taco bell ads get my stomach growling every single time. olive garden does a pretty damn good job taking my appetite away though. philadelphia's "cooking cream" commercials make me a bit queasy too.
with ricotta, honey, and arugula on foccaccia. bonus points if it's blackberry honey. best sandwich ever.
Ranch can save a bad slice of pizza, but I'd NEVER do that to a good slice.
total guilty pleasure, but there was a deli in my hometown that was a local legend (lines out the door for most of the day). My personal favorite was the appropriately named "gasm"- Garlic toasted hero topped with chicken cutlet, bacon, melted mozzarella, russian dressing, and coleslaw. Add a giant cup of their homemade iced tea, and it was the sort of meal you can only eat guilt-free when you're 16 (and probably why most of their business comes from the local high schools).
seriously though, the way i'd get through finals in college was promising myself that i'd get one of those sandwiches when i got home for the semester.
Absolutely heartbreaking- i always loved the"this week at serious eats hq" slideshows, to see what Dumpling had been up to each week. My deepest condolences to you, your family, and everyone at serious eats.
@mandyeats I'll second hallo berlin!
pasta with sauteed peas, onions, and prosciutto- simple, quick, delicious. yum :)
also have to agree with the salad recommendation- that plus the eggplant pizza is my personal favorite. now if only they sold it by the slice...
Oh! and burger purists might cringe, but Prime 16 is the best for pub fare. (getting a burger on one of the pretzel rolls might lead to a mess, but one that's worth it)
Miya's for the most delicious, unique sushi you'll ever have, Miso for a more classic take on sushi, Pacifico for awesome ceviche and other Latin/seafood treats (plus, absolutely killer sangria, mojitos, etc.) , Thali Too is always fun for Indian (or just Thali if you're a carnivore) , Barcelona for tapas, Istanbul Cafe is always a lot of fun, Scoozzi for slightly off-beat Italian. Thai Taste is probably the best Thai in the immediate area , but the service is sometimes shaky.
I've actually had hit-or-miss experiences at Ibiza, and as a New Yorker, don't think Pepe's lives up to the hype (Modern is better, but I still think they're all overrated...) Bentara and Soul de Cuba are also great, but not at the top of my list of must-try's, and York Street Noodle House is the best thing on a disgusting, blustery day.
always couches or beds, never the ottoman ;)
just tried the recipe today (with beef, not lamb). absolutely fantastic, although you weren't kidding about them being a bit soft for the grill! still, with a little homemade tzatziki and a pita- wonderful!
wow...thanks for the suggestions everyone! looking forward to doing a bit of research (hopefully of the edible kind! :) )
@tomk2: not weird at all, i'm the same way. i would never toast any of the fruit-flavored ones, but toasted brown sugar cinnamon... yum!
(i freely admit, poptarts are my guilty pleasure)
any news of where on li? excited to try it!
am i the only one this actually does apply to? although, i wouldn't say i eat less around guys as much as i eat MORE around girls.
for the most part, my guy friends (or boyfriend, if i'm lucky enough to have one at the time) never want to share anything, they'd rather have their own dish.
my girl friends, on the other hand, will gladly share a massive plate of french fries, or an enormous ice cream sundae (after all, if we're sharing, we must not be eating THAT much of it, right?)
