My mom is always saying that no one can make cole slaw as good as her mom made it. So I'd like to give it a try. I've never made cole slaw before, so I was wondering if anyone has an awsome coleslaw recipe that I could borrow to surprise my mom. Thanks!
Okay, so this is not something home made, but I love it and HAVE to start my day with it......Pop Tarts.....don't know why, just have to have one in the morning or I get very upset, if I don't have them in my cupboard I will go at at anytime of night to get them. Is there some type of food, home made or packaged that everyone HAS to have in the house at all times?
This probably sounds weird but, I LOVE Stella Doro Breakfast Treats and eat about 2 or more packages a week with tea and coffee. Does anyone know of a cookie recipe (or is it a biscuit?, what is it exactly?) that I could make that would mimic that type of cookie? Thank you SE readers, as usual....
When reading different recipes some call for fresh and some indicate dried. Is this a matter of the author's taste or is one always used over the other is certain recipes? Is fresh always the best? Is dried always used in specific recipes?
Sometimes when I read a recipe it calls for "really good, extra virgin olive oil", how do I know if it's "really good"? The most expensive? Are there any other "really good" ingredients that are out there that I should be using? I'm confused.

I have been dying to make spareribs (or babybacks, is it the same?) but it seems like such a long involved process when I see it done on a cooking show and I just don't have the time (or a smoker) is there another way to make spareribs so they come out falling off the bone and mouth-watering? Any recipes for a rub or sauce?

What is everyone's favorite cheese? The best for grating? With pasta? I pretty much grew up on Kraft grated parmesan and know there must be a plethora of other options out there. I need any and all cheese tips I can get. Help!
I am very picky when it comes to meat so I was wondering what everyone else does. Do you always go to a butcher or just for some things? How about meat at a grocery store? Is talking to the butcher a good idea or will they just tell you what you want to hear?
I am cleaning out my spice cabinet and since my mom and I shared, I'm not sure how old the spices are that she bought. So I'm tossing everything and starting from scratch. Any suggestions on what spices are must -haves? Also, what is the normal shelf life for spices? And are they're any brands or types that are better that others?
I was just about to post the question of "What is your most favorite cookbook" when I read mr_chorizo's wonderful post on the least favorite! So I'll ask now...."What is your favorite cookbook?" I am looking to purchase a few really great cookbooks, and thought I would ask the experts. Thanks.
I just started a new job and my hours are 12pm-8pm, so I have to make dinner ahead of time each day. Does anyone have any great make-ahead and heat or slow-cooker recipes they can share? I don't have much experience with slow-cookers. Thanks.
