Top loading bun for lobster roll

I'm pretty sure I've seen King's Hawaiian ""hotdog" rolls somewhere but I think you have to split them yourself?
As a transplanted Eastcoaster,I too miss those top split rolls.

Cheap/Bent Restaurant Flatware

Ditto...drives me batty also!! Can't stand the thin,cheap flatware with crooked tines on the forks,stains on the knives and spoons that clearly had been chewed in the garbage disposal!
When you're paying good money for your meal you surely want nicer flatwear with some 'heft' to it....and clean & shiny.
Not too much to ask.....just sayin!

What Goes Well with a Chicken Pot Pie?

Use for macadamia crumbs?

The fancy-schmantzy restaurants here in Seattle use them on "Macadamia crusted Halibut" and charge an arm and a leg.
I've made at home for much less.....enjoy!

Balducci's new york

Yes,I remember Balducci's when we lived in the West Village in the mid-1970's,loved shopping there also at my first real 'gourmet' grocery.......and who can ever forget Macy's Cellar at Herald Square? Could spend the day and entire paycheck there too!

A Different Method of Steeling Knives

I too have been using #3 method for a long time and I also move the knife rather than the rod.It just always felt more comfortable to me than #2.

how to prevent a lemon from going bitter when stored for later use?

I use either a small round Tupperware or a small zip lock bag.....must be refrigerated....never noticed any bitterness and I keep them for a week or more sometimes.

Corn or Flour Tortillas for Chicken Enchiladas?

Well then boyz,I'm an oddball from New York that just does it same way you describe.....on flour tortillas. A layer of refried beans,chick mixture,cheese and roll up....sauce/salsa and more cheese then bake. Delish! and we do call them enchiladas too because burritos are able to be picked up and eaten out of hand.
We just don't care for flavor of corn tortillas either.

Corn or Flour Tortillas for Chicken Enchiladas?

I always use the flour as the corn is a little too intense and "corny" to go w/ the chicken.Mine do not get 'gummy'
and what with all that delicious sauce/salsa and cheese topping,just get nice and soft and yummy.Good luck!

Cross site scripting messages?

it's happening to me too....

How can I intensify the lemon flavor in a dish without added so much lemon juice that the dish seems watered down?

Lots of zest !!
