First kosher in Dumbo

I'm not sure if you're joking or not. It really is an acronym and not named for a town in Poland called DÄ…browa Tarnowska.

Into a machine that is impossible to clean properly.

Mr. Softee Ice Cream Trucks

When you're buying from a Mister Softee truck, it's generally not in a place where you can be picky if you have kashrut issues. Also, as someone who worked in a place that served "upscale" soft serve, there's nothing "fresh" about it. I still eat it but it's not fresh.

How do *you* find kosher dairy recipes online?

I'd check out smitten kitchen's vegetarian stuff. Also, their stuff in general. Not all of it is kosher, but nearly all of it is because the writer did spend part of her life keeping kosher. For example, she has a fab mushroom soup that calls for cream and explicitly states you can use either stock or water. I know from experience that she tests her suggested substitutes to avoid giving a bad recipe.

Wholesale Kosher Vegan (and/or Vegan/Allergy-Free) Challah

Some water challot still have an egg glaze, so you'd have to double check. Also, I think GGH is looking for a brand recommendation.

GreenGirl, where are you? Brands vary by region.

Thanks for the link. Jerked veggie chicken sounds worth a trip.

Lasagna

Also, n.397 is a designation of the pasta type. For example, my favorite pasta shape is campanelle n.99. It can be helpful since the names for pasta shapes can vary regionally and sometimes I've seen the same (or very similar) names for different pasta shapes.

2nd Budda Buddai @ 77 Mulberry Street

According to Yelp (http://www.yelp.com/biz/buddha-bodai-...) it's the same owner. The review indicates that it is basically the same as the previous one except no cutoff for dim sum!

I'm going to try to get there this week and report back.

Pareve icecreams

Good to know! I grew up on Double Rainbow ice creams and it might even be worth slogging through the local Trader Joe's for a pint or two of nostalgia.

UWS NYC odd-kosher-food event

Yes it is and enough of my friends know it as part of a joke that I thought the joke was well-known. I guess not.

The point of the joke is where on the neck. Also, it's a joke.

Manischewitz, Lieber's, etc. How do they do it?

This year, I got really excited that I found KLP kitniyot Dijon mustard from France. It was unbelievably bland and I considered asking my friends who hosted seder if they had leftover horseradish to give it some kick.

Giraffe? They finally figured out where to shecht a giraffe? There goes that joke.

Chicken Nuggets for Passover

Btw, what is the texture of potato flakes? I'm not familiar and had pictured a less crunchy panko-type thing.

KP Gelatin Question

I wouldn't add any sugar and would use at least triple the amount of "dessert" powder that you would for gelatin. Panna cotta is pretty forgiving.

I've had that with shredded coconut and well-crushed almonds.It was amazing.

Pesach and Costco

It isn't that common in some parts of the US. The Costco near my grandmother's definitely does not sell Empire or any particularly "kosher" brands.

Gino's pizza Brooklyn (near Boro Park)

They don't even have a claim to have actual supervision. I wonder if it's someone's kitchen, so they don't want people knowing where the food is actually coming from. Weird.

Also, potato knishes with pizza? Oof! Too heavy.

flavored Vintage Seltzer

Well, you'd have to ask those people (or their preferred kashrut authority) if Triangle K's hashgacha is acceptable for pesach. "Stricter style" is a very relative term.

Pareve Passover Chocolate Chips

The pesach part is probably more of an issue. Most of the non-heimishe brands use soy lecithin to stabilize the chocolate and to make it creamier when it melts. I have a feeling that when making a "natural" or "healthful" brand, the company tries to avoid as many allergens as possible so the lecithin gets dropped.

Critique my (first!) Pesach menu?

More of the lemon aioli with chopped, fresh dill would do nicely. Growing up, gravlax without dill was simply incomplete. If you want a different sauce for each, then a garlic aioli with the artichokes.

Non-Seder Passover Recipes/Ideas

Thank you for this! When I read the recipe months ago, I meant to mark it for pesach and promptly forgot. All my stuff is dairy, so I just have to sub in the potato starch.

Critique my (first!) Pesach menu?

Sounds delicious! I am partial to the coconut-covered marshmallows that only seem to pop up at pesach. Then again, I'm partial to coconut in general.

The only thing to consider is the vadouvan. Some people hold that some of the spices in it (fenugreek, cumin, mustard) are kitniyot that they will not eat. I love the combination of curry and egg myself and (kitniyot-eater that I am) make curried egg salad every pesach.

Heaviness of a second seder

The people we do first seder with serve cut up veggies with mayo-based dip as well as cut up fruit with chocolate sauce when everyone is doing all the dipping. It's easy for them and it takes the edge of everyone's hunger when the meal comes around. As a result, they can serve a lighter meal and everyone is happy.

Hostess gifts

As a guest, I totally appreciate an assignment that I know will be useful/helpful to the hosts. It also is one less decision for me to think about.
