Bakery in/near HB

Not too close to Huntington Beach, but Katella Deli or Great Dane in Los Alamitos have a good selection.

Heading to the Stanton, CA (a little west of Anaheim) area for the T-day holiday

Cafe Hiro is in Cypress, but close enough to Stanton and Garden Grove. http://www.cafehiro.com/

And a 4th for Park Ave.

Has anyone seen kiwi berries in LA?

I saw some at the Long Beach Town Center Sam's Club in the last two weeks.

Where to eat near San Francisco State

I realized today that I never reported back on our trip to San Francisco.

We ended up at an Indian fast food place after returning to our car to go to lunch and discovering a dead battery. Not exactly what we planned, but after a two hour quest to find a battery, etc., we were all cranky and hungry.

I am looking forward to trying some of these places next time we are visiting. And I will pass along your recommendations to my son.

Thanks for the great response and all the suggestions!

We're dropping our son off in August and would like to take him to dinner before we leave. I thought I'd get a head start on this.

He'll try anything! We are a little less adventurous. Somewhere casual, but we might splurge for the occasion.

Thanks!

Peach melba pie

Have you seen one lately, preferably in Orange County or Long Beach area?

As I recall, it was made with glazed fresh peaches and fresh raspberries.

They used to have them at Polly's, or maybe it was Marie Callendar's. It's been so long since I've seen one that I can't remember where it was!

Do you have a favorite I'm-alone-now-so-nobody-will-know favorite dish?

My secret meal is hot dog "pinwheels": sliced hot dogs rolled up in flattened and sliced Crescent rolls, baked and dipped in mustard. Yum!

I used to eat cheez whiz and peanut butter sandwiches. Or bacon and peanut butter.

Hot Cross Buns in OC

I saw hot cross buns at The Great Dane Bakery in Los Alamitos a couple of days ago. But when I went back today, I didn't see any, so I guess a call first would be advisable there, too.

Emergency brownie help needed!

Maybe you could try calling Melinda Lee for advice! It seems to me that she gets these kind of questions a lot.

Suggestions for big group dinner in San Jose

Spaghetti Factory was actually the first place I tried, to set up a team dinner. But after calling 3 times and never getting the call back that was promised, I gave up. It would have been ideal, though--thanks for the suggestion!

coconut M&M sightings?

Walgreens on Telegraph in Berkeley had some last week.

Suggestions for big group dinner in San Jose

Thanks, rilkeanheart and Claudette-- just got back from our trip, and everybody enjoyed Aqui and Sonoma Chicken Coop! Your suggestions made me look good, but I gave the credit to Chowhounders!

Suggestions for big group dinner in San Jose

Thanks for the suggestion--that sounds like exactly what we are looking for!

Suggestions for big group dinner in San Jose

My son's water polo team will be in the San Jose area at the end of July for a tournament. We're staying near the airport, but can drive a bit. Can you recommend some restaurants for teenage boys with big appetites and their parents, a group of 30 or more? We would like good quality, somewhat healthy for $15 or less, and relatively quick service. Maybe something "fast casual," too. And nothing too exotic to upset their stomachs! (Too many restrictions?) Thanks for any suggestions.
