anchovy stuffed olives

I was just given a can of these olives. Anyone know of a good recipe I can use them in? I'm thinking pasta or chicken.

HELP!?! New to Silver Spring/Aspen Hill/Rockville/Wheaton with nothing to eat!

IMHO Guiseppi's in Rockville is THE BEST pizza in Rockville!

BBQ in Lake Gaston/Littleton NC

I had pulled pork bbq & slaw from the guy at the flea market last week. It was awesome! Lots of fresh produce and seafood for sale also.

Best Seafood in/around Easton, MD?

The best seafood place nearby is Suicide Bridge in Hurlock, but it's a 40 minute drive from Easton.

Do I need a pizza stone or even a pan?

Hubby & I make pizza weekly. We use a pizza stone and that works best. You can use a pan, but the crust will be crunchier and flatter. If using a stone, leave it in the oven at all times on the bottom rack, because it helps regulate the oven temp. Preheat the oven at least 1 hour, we always set the temp to 550. Another tip - put the cheese on first, then tomatoes and any other toppings. Good luck!

BBQ in VA Beach

Next weekend I'll be travelling from Ocean City, MD to Lake Gaston, NC. I'll be in VA Beach around lunch time and would LOVE to stop for BBQ. Where should I go? Thanks!

Where to buy ginger beer?

Rodmans in Wheaton/Silver Spring

Salisbury, MD: Seeking a Haven in the area

I can't comment on health clubs, but the city park is great for walking & jogging. Check out the farmer's market downtown, Saturdays & Wednesdays. The Crisfield seafood guy is always there with the catch of the day - shrimp, soft shell crabs, fish. I second KJC5032's suggestion to visit Rehobeth Beach and Ocean City.

Salisbury, MD: Seeking a Haven in the area

The best restaurants I've been to in Salisbury are Cactus Taverna, Restaurant 213 (intimate dinner), Hunan Palace & Sushi Kanpai (best sushi), Vinnys LaRoma (best Italian), Back Street Grill (my fave local spot - best steak sandwich ever), Plaza Tapatia (good Mexican, but typical), Shalimar (better of the 2 Indian restaurants), Adams Rib (good bbq, good crabcakes). Brew River is probably the best bar, don't bother with the food there. Market Street Inn is popular, but IMHO the food is overpriced and not that good. The best seafood spot is Old Mill Crabhouse in Delmar, only a few minutes from Salisbury. The best pizza is Delmar Pizza, also in Delmar.

Good crabcake off I-81in MD

In April I went to Hagerstown for dinner & a show with a large group. Considering it looks like a biker bar from the outside, I was surprised at how good the crabcakes were at Barefoot Bernies - www.barefootberniesusa.com

salisbury or nearby gift certificate

If you want to go with something in Salisbury, I recommend Restaurant 213 for fine dining. Cactus Taverna in Salisbury has great food, but it's a more casual atmosphere. Liquid Assets (94th street OC) and Galaxy 66 in OC always get rave reviews and both have great good.

Family dining in Ocean City, MD

I highly recommend Smokers in West OC. Everything is smoked on-site, they smoke fresh local fish, and the sides and desserts are homemade. Everything is excellent. I also recommend BJ's on the Water on 75th street for the fam. I always take my family (including 3 young kids) there when they visit. Huge menu, nice outdoor bay-side seating & casual. Similar is Captains Galley in West OC across the street from Sunset Marina. Mothers Cantina is popular for $1 tacos. Pretty much all the Italian restaurants in OC are good, but with kids you may want to try the more casual Mione's or Lombardis. Old Mill crabhouse, a long-time fave place of many in MD & DE has now opened in OC.
