When the vibe of the place just doesn't feel right. .

For really good pho, I would have tolerated that guy and I might have asked him to chiffonade my basil real quick.

Got a new pizza stone. What else can I use it for?

Always aim for a crispy bottom on your arepas.

I fry my arepas first and then I finish them in the oven with a quick bake. An arepa pizza sounds so delicious to me. I really hope you try it.

Got a new pizza stone. What else can I use it for?

Wow, a large arepa pizza.
And it looks pretty good too!

I would hightail it out of there (especially if it's a trifecta).

Dining out should *always* be a positive and memorable experience.

Wan Chai Seafood in Flushing - Excellent

It's always best to avoid times when any kitchen is slammed,
but for Wan Chai, it just might be growing pains.

Styrofoam containers ... not in NYC starting July 2015.

Tortelloni con funghi porcini - sauce to go with?

Pesto and some pasta water

I miss old school Chinese restaurants.

I miss the menus where we could select from column A and/or from column B.
I'm not sure if that option even exists any more.

What do I do with this onion/green onion thingy?

Yes, those are Spring onions/Texas onions.

We use them primarily for one dish and one dish only (no real reason why except for their sweetness). Chicken gizzards w/ onions or chicken hearts w/ onions. Both are very good.
In Italian culture, this preparation is referred to as a Spezzatino. For recipes, search under Spezzatino con Durelli di Pollo or Durelli di Pollo in Umido and then select to translate the page. These dishes are excellent with polenta or scrambled eggs.

How do you like your tacos...crunchy or soft?

Corn is KING.

How do you like your tacos...crunchy or soft?

When eating antojitos, SOFT corn tortillas please, or order me some sopes. Even better.

If I have to settle for flour tortillas, then let it be quesadillas or chimichangas.

Can You Identify This Dessert?

Great, now I have to have some Kirschwasser.

Burnt toast? No, BURNED toast.

Burnt toast usually goes to the starlings and they don't care what variety you give to them.
I personally prefer *somewhat* burnt potatoes or pizza with a fair amount of char. That's really about it ... oh, and crispy burnt cheese is very good too along with lamb riblets and other grilled specialties.

Can You Identify This Dessert?

Very observant of you greygarious.

I was just wondering if you think the cake itself is perhaps pumpkin, spiced (ginger), carrot, or other? I'm trying to guess at what pairs well with the peach center.

Fellow Diner, You Want to do WHAT to My Table?!

I've always said this before, but I think that people see piles of garbage as an invitation to dump MORE garbage on top of it. This is precisely why I *always* make sure that my surroundings are CLEAN. The only thing I would have done differently than you is I would have piled the dirty dishes as far away from me as possible *before* having sat down.

Good for you for speaking up and not tolerating their tremendous disrespect of your space.

Interesting ideas for leftover cheese sauce?

Smoked Boneless Ham--Is it already cooked?

Similar meats *usually* have the words "READY TO COOK" on their label. Don't confuse those words with "ready to eat". Browse this website for heating instructions and recipes ... http://www.mycooksham.com/cooking/ HTH.

Just a FYI about parents. Parents have to be seated and eating between the hours
of 5:30pm and 7:00pm or they turn into pumpkins.

Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY - January 2015 [Old]

I ate three cookies out of that whole Pinachios tub because they disappeared so quickly in my home. I have a stash of cookies in my downstairs fridge called Trader Joe's Sutter's Formula Cookies. They're peanut butter cookies with milk chocolate nuggets. Soft, chewy ... and mine.

YAY for these ... https://images.search.yahoo.com/image...

What would be a complimentary side dish to fried rabbit?

Risotto, spoonbread, or polenta.

Broccoli rabe without garlic?

If you like mac n cheese with chopped broccoli, try it with chopped broccoli rabe florets instead. Sharp cheddar cheese and broccoli rabe are a surprisingly good combination.

Broccoli rabe florets can be consumed raw in a salad, but be forewarned that they taste
akin to Chinese hot mustard.

Indian recipes utilizing rapini/rabe are sometimes garlic free. HTH.

Kraft Singles on white bread with crusts removed, and quite possibly chased with a cold Mountain Dew. Maybe she'll soon graduate to Emmenthaler on whole wheat.
