Why Do Subway Restaurants Smell Awful?

I've always thought Subway had a weird smell, so you're not alone. I assumed it was the bread.

I'm intrigued - what kind of cheese and nuts?

Going out for breakfast -- Never again!

I tend to be the designated chef at family gatherings, so for my, breakfast out is a lifesaver. It sucks when everyone else is chatting over coffee while I'm slaving over a hot stove.

I personally think my homemade french toast is better than most of the ones I get out but if I'm cooking for more than me and my boyfriend, it's not worth the effort!

Chocolate Cheerios Not Groundbreaking

@Molly08 definitely remember those. The cereal I miss (which no one seems to remember) is Pop Tarts Cereal! They were little rectangles and came in 2 flavors - strawberry and brown sugar cinnamon. If you took a bite of one you could see they even colored the center of the puff pink or brown to mimic a pop tart. Granted I was 9 years old but I remember them being the best cereal in the world after Peanut Butter Crunch.

London Street Food?

Sorry to suggest another market but if you'd like a trip to Greenwich, their market just near Cutty Sark DLR station that has a number of tasty food stalls, including Caribbean, Brazilian, Japanese, crepes, Thai, etc. I haven't been down recently but in warmer weather at least there are 2 additional areas with food vendors: on Greenwich Pier, and then further down the main road towards the Greenwich train station.

The Basics: How to Make Shrimp Pasta

@zeta: I was in Venice earlier this year and ordered a seafood pizza with cheese at a completely authentic local restaurant. I had always heard seafood + cheese is a no no in Italy, but it seems not!

Savory Onion and Leek Tart

I really want to make this but absolutely do not have the time to make my own crust. Will it be terrible with a store bought one?
