Breakfast Around The World

Artery clogging breakfasts are popular in Quebec, too. Eggs, home fries, bacon, ham or sausage (or all three). Here, we add baked beans.

Bunny's in South Orange for their thin crust pizza. They don't get enough press IMO.

am i the only one who hates recipies?

I will often tweak a recipe to adjust it to my tastes, but I usually follow my favorites to the letter, because the results are fine just the way they were written.

Why do people go to All-You-Can-Eat Buffets?

Buffets are a usually affordable option for groups with diverging tastes. Or for two very hungry people :)

Which State(s) do you enjoy eating in outside of the Midwest?

Why limit your question to the US? Canada has many fine restaurants, too. For example, many Americans like to head north to Montreal for a night out.

Best jar opener for larger diameter jars?

My favorite jar opener is to smack the lid flat on the floor. Works every time.

What's your favorite home-made salad dressing?

Very simple, really. Olive oil, lemon juice and crushed red pepper. Sometimes a dab of mustard.

Mirepoix - what's the point?

Since celery spoils so easily and I end up throwing most of it out, I avoid it in my mirepoix and substitute celery salt instead.

Do you remember what the first dish you prepared from a recipe was?

It was no doubt a cake, made from my grandmother's cookbook. Turned out well, too IIRC.

The ridiculous price of raw chicken wings!

I can remember when they used to literally give them away (for soup), back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Then some genius in Buffalo made a fortune on them and the rest is history.

You're right. In English, it's salad dressing.

Commonly mispronounced foods

You are absolutely correct that there are as many regional accents in Canada as there are in the US. Apart from three years in NJ, I was born here and lived here all my 62 years, so I should know.

What Food Do You Leave to the Experts?

I like to make Maryland chicken with cream gravy. Shallow fried, so doesn't make as much of a mess.

What Food Do You Leave to the Experts?

Greek and Middle Eastern. There are so many good restaurants that offer it, often at reasonable prices, that it is not worth the trouble attempting same yourself. Unless you are Greek or Middle Eastern, of course.

Most edible canned/packaged soup?

Knorr makes a good product. Also, if you can shop at Pathmark, their house brand clam chowder is very good.

What favorite food is such a labor of love, time, technique or even money that rarely make it but when you do…

Lasagne Bolognese for me too. I put slices of hard cooked eggs in it. And only shredded mozzarella. One day I will add pepperoni slices.

Less of this in 2014 thread

Interesting anecdote: I am from Quebec. My American fiance and I picked up a six pack of Labatt's Blue at the store near the campground we were staying at in Vermont. "Imported from Canada". We were five miles from the border.

What is your choice of drink in the morning?

OJ or grapefruit juice. First thing. Then breakfast with coffee. Although I wouldn't say no to a very spicy Bloody Caesar if someone offered me one.
