Roasting Beef at 500 degrees

I was told the recipe was for prime rib (only?) cook at 500 degrees at 5 min per pound then turn off oven and leave for two hours exactly. I have wondered how it would work with other cuts of beef

White Worcestershire sauce

I was just told it was White Worcestershire sauce. This person is not known for passing down recipes honestly. She eliminates things or "forgets steps" I should have known.

White Worcestershire sauce

What can you tell me about it? I had never heard of it until someone served me turkey meat balls. What are its uses? How does it differ from the regular stuff? Happy holidays everyone.

I am amazed how inexpensive it is, especially on Thanksgiving.

Ice cream sandwiches with chocolate ice cream only

Thanks. Yes it is. What is in Arizona or am I having an old people moment?

Ice cream sandwiches with chocolate ice cream only

Thank you...I did a search from their main website and it shows quite a few locations in my area. I have one question if someone sees this. What is the name of the premium ice cream only available in Arizona that everyone talks about. Doesn't it have a similar name?

Belly Lox

Brents Deli for both the lox and pastrami. I suggest you try the hot corned beef/pastrami plate. For a few bucks more you get far more meat than a regular sandwich, two sides and enough bread to last two more days.

Where can I buy these? All I found online is Blue Bunny which isn't local. I may end up making them myself I guess unless I find a source.

Lemon bars

Thanks again everyone. I had not refridgerated them the night before but they tasted better the second day. Also I added the sugar on top when the bars were slightly warm and it made the sugar melt.

Lemon bars

What kind of pan is best to make lemon bars in? My friend made a great recipe in a 9x12 pyrex pan and the sides of the bars came out brown and crunchy. Can you bake lemon bars in a water bath to prevent this? Would a water bath also prevent hot spots in the oven and promote even baking?

Bungled Banana Bread

The "sinking problem" I had for a long time was solved when I realized that I was melting the butter and should not have been. It should have been softened by leaving it out for a while and then adding it to the sugar and eggs. I hope this helps.

Pico Kosher Deli, one of the top 10 kosher pastramis in the country, interesting.

I can't believe they have been around for 40 plus years. This is the place I ate my first Sky High sandwich. They taught me to eat it without cheese because they are a kosher deli.

LA to San Luis Obispo...where to eat?!

Does Ruddell's have more on the menu than what I am seeing online?

If you are looking for a simple casual lunch in a setting akin to Mayberry RFD try Kays Country Kitchen in Orcutt. I just found it 3 days ago. Food was great and the people were smiling.

For breakfast in Morro Bay try Karla's Kountry Kitchen on Beach St.

It was extremely hot last weekend on the Central Coast so I hope it cools down for you.

Country Deli Chatsworth

In fact I would suggest the pastrami and corned beef and I happened to notice the triple decker sandwiches yesterday which looked even better than before. The potato salad is not heavy on mustard and I think it does have egg in it. For breakfast I usually get their skirt steak and eggs or the corned beef hash. For lunch I usually get one of the many burgers or a sky high sandwich. Dinners at Country Deli have been somewhat mediocre at times so with the new menu I hope that changes. Also remember the new menu is not online yet.

Country Deli Chatsworth

I was in this morning and found that the menu has changed completely for the better. They have much more now in every way, you name it. More deli plates, fish plates, six new grilled chicken sandwiches, breakfast including chicken and waffles, appetizers, dinner plates etc. Surprisingly the prices on the old items seem much the same as before. An added extra is that they will be selling deli food by the pound for take out. (their potato salad beats anyone around including Brents) There is so much more staff on hand now as well. I also noticed that many new faces are coming by. I hang out there a lot and I usually know a lot of customers but this time I knew only two. I like Country Deli because the food is often almost as good as Brents and better is some areas. I can usually get in with no wait, parking is good, service is great and the people are friendly.

Cayucos, Avila Bay

Followup-I was there and back yesterday to today. While in the area I only got to Duckies's in Cayucos (yucky Duckie tourist trap.) and Andersons Pea Soup in Buelton and I had to come home. MB was about to be wall to wall crowded with a Harvest Fest I had no idea about. The weather seriously sucked at at least 91 and very humid everywhere I was at and the hotel had no air. On the way home I found Kays in Orcutt which I did a review of here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/991196
Will try again in November maybe. Thanks for trying to help me out.

Kays Country Kitchen-Orcutt

I came home early from a crowded (Harvest Fest in Morro Bay-I had no idea) and very hot Central Coast (a humid 91 or more everywhere) this morning. On the way back home at 7am my wife declares she is hungry and for me "to find a place to eat." I used the cellphone and asked it for "Santa Maria breakfast" and it gave me Kays. It is about two miles off the 101 at Clark Ave in an area seemingly similar to Mayberry RFD. The folks were friendly, the place was clean and the food was really great. I has linguica sausage and eggs, home fries and homemade pumpkin muffin. My wife has a hamburger patty and eggs and both dishes were wonderful.

I like to try new things and any kind of food is fine. Trying to keep it under $35.00 pp for dinner and $20 for lunch. Breakfast is often at Karla's County Kitchen in Morro Bay which is dog friendly and has good food. Is it worth driving to Linn's on Santa Rosa Creek Rd? I haven't been there in years but do enjoy the goods for sure and the location is so peaceful. Thanks for the recs guys!

I just hope they offer the same items as Burbank which Glendale does not.

Going to a family event in the area next month. Need rec's please. I will probably do Guiseppes in Pismo one night and I must try Taco Temple which has been closed or too busy on my past trips north. Anything else I can add? Any suggestions on dog friendly places in general would also be appreciated. TIA!

I really like <fill in chain> and I look forward to returning

The chain restaurant Yoshinoya. I went in there and found a good healthy inexpensive Tilapia plate for about $8.00.
