Ride JetBlue, Get Free Cream Cheese

I think they pump more air into the cheese like low fat ice cream. Low fat doesn't take too bad, it's the fat free that's like cardboard (and scary). I'd rather run an extra mile than eat that.

Red Velvet Cake Revisited

Great in-depth article on Red Velvet on ajc.com (Atlanta Journal-Constitution's website):

Seriously Delicious Giveaway: Zingerman's Gift Certificate

Believe it not, I learned to like cheese only about two years ago (my midwest friends nearly disowned me when they found out)-- but now? Well, I almost can't go a day without it! Now, I'm not yet into the moldy, stinky stuff-- that might take a few decades. But I have found that I really love a good Piave. It's all about the butterscotchiness.

Which Plain Potato Chip Rules? What's Your Favorite?

Twiglets are only good if you like Marmite-- blech! Ed, save yourself!

Restaurant suggestiong in Atlanta

I moved to Atlanta from NYC a year ago. There's great food down here! By downtown, what do you mean? I'd check out Ecco, if you're in the midtown area. The Globe is really good, too.

'On Top of Spaghetti' Book Giveaway

I love a good lasagna-- the old fashioned kind, but with hot italian sausage in place of the meat. A friend of mine did just make some incredible homemade ravioli filled with, very simply, ricotta, mint, and spring peas. It was fantastic!

Question of the Day: What movie has the best dinner scene?

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? First meal scene to make me NOT want to eat. That's power.

Where's the Android app?

I was recently in Chicago, which I knew to be a serious food town, but I hadn't had the time to plan my meals and for lunch I found myself a little stuck. We went to Frontera twice! But we were interested in the charming, unique stuff too... I found that what I really needed was an on-the-go guide that I could rely on to tell me what were the best restaurants near me at any time. Or farmers markets or other food lover haunts, for that matter. My husband and I love to be food tourists!

Like most seriouseats fans, I've come to trust this community in particular like no other food loving community for advice. Would be neat to be guided by the same community while on the go.

Fun coffee shops, UWS or Soho

I'm coming to make my annual pilgramage to NY, where I used to live before I moved to Atlanta and fell out of touch with the good places to go in NY! I need some recommendations of good spots to meet friends for coffee/treats, and/or a glass of wine in my afternoons. I imagine I'll be spending most of my time on the UWS and the soho/west village/meatpacking area. Faves?

Best spots for food in Florence?

I'm heading to Florence in the next week and have been building up a deficit of calories in anticipation! Can anyone recommend some hidden gem spots where we can find really good authentic food? And do we need reservations?

Biscuit 911 with Scott Peacock!

Scott Peacock of Watershed in Atlanta (and recently featured in Gourmet) is answering questions about biscuits today here:

Pretty neat.

Toledo, Ohio: Best eats?

I'm heading to Toledo OH for a New Year's eve wedding and have one additional night to eat (Sunday, the 30th). My family is a bunch of New York foodies who need some good food to help us forget the cold! Anyone have a "can't miss" spot in Toledo?
