What is the one item you always leave Costco with?

i presume you're not asking about the kirkland garbage bags (never leave costco without 'em!). Mango Peach Salsa - yum. put it on top of everything.

Restaurant sedarim

Prime KO would be my guess as well. I've been to Prime Grill for sedarim, and it was a nice experience, so the restaurant management group seems to know what it's doing vis-a-vis arranging for turning a restaurant over into kosher for passover and arranging for a nice holiday experience.

Tropical Shalach Manot?

funky monkey banana snacks. jelly belly's - tropical fruit flavor. go up and down the candy aisle in just about any kosher grocery - you'll be inspired!

pardes is certainly the most creative by far, but solo runs a close second in manhattan.

A Kosher Aussie Foodie in Manhattan for 5 days - Where to Eat?!

i'm not sure there are any restaurants that are strictly bet yosef. if you're looking for raw meat, you can go to Prime Cut, Avi Glatt, Kings Highway Glatt...

Sushi

Sushi is a clump of rice, a little wasabi, and a piece of raw fish on the outside. the rolls we are used to are referred to as "inside out rolls" by sushi-purists. I think, according to Rav Moshe Feinstein zt"l, it's best to make separate berachot on the fish and the rice.

Restaurants open on Pesach in NY/NJ area?

Prime grill is open every year pesach. sister restaurants solo and prime ko will probably be open this year as well. les marais turns kosher for pesach, and I think wolf and lamb does too.

Need rules of thumb for cooking with wine

best rule of thumb re: cooking with wine? never cook with a wine you wouldn't drink.

How else can I cook sausage?

try using them in a "dirty rice" or a jambalaya - or, try a savory bread dressing with the sausage

Another beef-for-treif recipe substitution question

definitely go with beef ribs for this recipe, over veal ribs.

A Kosher Aussie Foodie in Manhattan for 5 days - Where to Eat?!

Solo, at 55th and Madison avenue (in the Sony atrium) has really high quality Kosher food. Prime KO, on the Upper West Side, is a great Japanese kosher restaurant, with fresh sushi, interesting entrees, and a really fun ambience.

Things you thought you didn't need but were wrong about, and things you thought you needed but really didn't

Never thought I needed a fish spatula. my husband brought me one and it's rarely out of my hands when I cook. I swear by it. Same goes for my box grater.

Busy parent Meals

defrosted meat, chicken, fish really don't take very long to cook - try dumping salsa or duck sauce or some other prepared sauce over a protein and stick in the oven. macaroni is also a magical ingredient - one night's side dish of mac is tomorrow night's main with some chicken bits thrown in.

Prime Ko's Gyu Kakuni

Had it - i'm normally a fish fan, but this dish called out to me (i'm a sucker for just about anything with mushrooms and potatoes). the meat was super soft - like, cut with a fork, melt in your mouth, are you sure this isn't butter - soft. really good dish, totally worth forgoing my usual sea bass or salmon choice.

Who Are Your Cooking Icons/Idols?

My grandmothers - Bubbes - had completely different approaches to cooking, but taught me everything I need to know about food. For them, meals - all meals - were meant to be special experiences enjoyed with family and friends. Whether it was latkes wrapped in paper towels, apple cake on a fall night, or Sunday brunch with lox and pumpernickel bread, food time was family time was experience time. From them I learned to make every meal with the family a memorable experience, something to enjoy, savor, and relish. This is true for pizza night, chinese takeout, beef stew on a cold winter night, or bbq in the summer heat.

Best Kosher Wings

my husband used to be a big fan of the dougie's wings - until he discovered the frozen meal mart buffalo chicken wings found in the freezer section of most kosher grocery stores - sometimes he'll buy the dougie's wing sauce (also available in kosher grocery stores) and pour it on top, sometimes he won't - really, try the frozen ones before you make yourself crazy ordering them from a restaurant. they are very very similar - if not identical to - the dougie's

Eating at teh Israel Museum

Had a great sandwich at the Israel Museum this past October - I wish I could remember what was in it, but it was fresh and delicious - and such a pleasant change from PB&J in NY museums!

Paula Deen eating a cheeseburger

Let's all remember that anyone on television is a media personality, with their only obligation to themselves and their own. She furthers her own agenda - filling her coffers - much as any other shill does (including my beloved Bourdain).

i second the veal recommendation. i've substituted veal for pork in many other recipes, very successfully.

Help, need gluten free dessert ideas

look up passover dessert options - on passover, flour isn't used, so you'll find lots of ideas for flourless tortes, cakes, cookies, and meringues.

How do YOU roast a chicken?

Rub with melted truffle margarine and thyme, stuff the cavity with pearl onions, mushrooms, and garlic, truss, salt and pepper, start it high - 450 - for 15 minutes, then 350 'til it's done.
