cast iron pans are great - REALLY????

Thanks for all the responses. I guess I don't eat nearly the amount of bacon that everyone else seems to! But I will be persistent with bacon and other fatty foods.

I am used to cooking with only ALL Clad. Thank you all for the comments. Maybe I was trying things that stick too soon.

My husband bought me one since I'm a foodie/gourmet cook and was told I have to have one. I've seasoned it two different times using different methods (on cooktop and in oven) and it is absolutely the worst. Can you say "STICKING?" What now? It was bought a restaurant supply so I'm assuming it's not the pan, but me.

Fresh sushi near Ft Worth??

I just moved here from So Cal and I am a bit spoiled about sushi. I see a lot of it here is frozen. My husband and I are "advanced" sushi eaters. Can anyone help?

fresh choice beef in ft. worth markets/butcher shops

Choice referred to meat grade, as opposed to select. No I haven't been to Central Market or Whole Foods but I have them flagged to go to. Just wondered if there were any butcher shops. I will definitely be at the 2 you mentioned. I'm from so Cal so was afraid I wouldn't be able to find a good selection there. Thanks for the info.

fresh choice beef in ft. worth markets/butcher shops

Moving to Ft. Worth area in 2 weeks. Am not seeing a very good selection in markets. There has got to be a place (even near the Stockyards) to procure "choice" ribeyes, porterhouses, filets, etc. Help!

Indian food rec's for tonight

I am going for my 1st time ever to an Indian restaurant in Studio City tonight. I would like to know some favorite dishes that chowhounders like to order. So far Saag Paneer and Chicken Tikki Masala. What else - especially lamb rec's - or any others? Thank you.

old school green goddess dressing - anywhere?

I've been making my own at home and am wondering if anyone has had any around town. With the revival of a lot of old school drinks and dishes, I'm curious. It is SO GOOD!

Change at ocean star?

Chan-
Thanks for the link to the Ocean Star comments. Even tho' I'm a hounder, I missed those comments. Still would have tried it. And they have NO alcohol license. What Im wondering is, is East Gourmet Seafood like the Old Ocean Star?

Change at ocean star?

Just went yesterday after a diet hitaus of 6 months; what is the deal with the new Ocean Star for dim-sum? Seemed like it must be under new ownership - new dim-sum menu and missing many of the items that I used to go for. I enjoyed some of the new tastes, but missed the old too much. What is my best bet for my next dim-sum and calorie-busting outing - cart-style? Yes I go to Empress Pavilion often. Thanks!

Where the sushi bars shop?

I'm looking for names/addresses of the fish markets downtown where the sushi restaurants shop. I don't know if it is one location or several. Help! Also, someone indicated to me that they are only open weekdays?

I live in Sherman Oaks and wonder where I can find authentic chilaquiles that are not Gringo-ized and that I don't have to spend a tankful of gas to find. Thoughts?
