Giant Dave & Buster's Opening in Pelham Manor!

There's a D&B in Times Square also.

D&B reminds me of the Nathan's arcade combined with the atmosphere of the Sportspage. Noisy, along with bar food.

Takeout pasta dishes - how to avoid overcooked pasta?

Pasta is one of those foods that just doesn't travel well.
Lasagna OTOH, after cooled at room temperature, will work out fine.

Burgers and fries are a no go, but surprisingly, tacos are okay traveling.

Take-out pasta is just a bad idea.

A product called "gluten bread"

Shark week?

I've only had black tip shark fillets, and I cooked mine the same as any other 1" thick fish fillets. Shark has a rather unique texture to it. You'll find it to be somewhat fibrous and it can withstand a little overcooking (if you happen to overcook it). I never soaked mine, and I've always had good results. HTH.

`
EXACTLY. Take kumquats for example, their RIND pack quite a flavor.

How do you prefer your matzo balls?

Large and in charge, somewhere in between, no schmaltz, homemade matzo meal.
If these are all perfectly aligned, we have a perfect matzo ball.

Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY Thread - April 2015

I prefer Taro chips over parsnip. (I'm not sure if TJ's has them yet).

eggplant Parmesan

JMHO, but, aged Parm should be walked by an oven, NOT placed in one.

For Eggplant Parmigiana use a soft low moisture cheese like:
Mozzarella, Fontina, or a slicing Provolone.

How do the Greeks make lamb (whole muscle) so good?

Light basting (done in intervals) is the best advice when cooking lamb.
Just babysit the process and it will definitely pay off.

Bagelman, where is that oven of yours (pic above), and what

Irish Soda Bread recipe that isn't too dry?

I'm eating soda bread and stollen all this week. Both are PERFECT.
One is a bit aged (from December), and one not (from Tuesday, 03/17).

How do you repurpose lumpy pancakes?

How do you repurpose lumpy pancakes?

Soak them all with flavored rum and the lumps will be gone and forgotten.

Types of Tomato sauce?

Follow the same directions for making Tomatillo Sauce Salsa Verde,
just use tomatoes instead of tomatillos. (Roma tomatoes are nice and juicy).

Pears for salad?

Alkapal, I've tried these pears too, Chinese White Pears, but they fell short of my expectations. Outside they have near perfect exteriors, but inside, I found them to be somewhat bland.

That good and that cheap?! Lamb shoulder chops.

I haven't purchased a whole shoulder in quite a while, but I used to buy ones
weighing about ten pounds each and costing only $1.99/lb. A recent purchase of shoulder lamb chops cost me $6.99/lb. I should probably resume buying whole shoulders again and saving a few bucks.
