Can I Use a Coupon on a Date?

I'd probably hold the coupon until the end of the date. If it was going well I'd hold on to it as to not ruin the mood. If it was going poorly, who cares what she think of me.

Great Leap Forward for Fast-Food French Fries

I was very disappointed with this product. I generally do not eat fast food but I love fries and got sucked in by the commerical. They were limp and tasteless.

Rick Bayless Makes Your Chili at Home

I agree tatamagouche. It's disappointing that people don't either have the time to learn to cook or the inclination to do so, with even the simplest of dishes. Chili, and guac for that matter, can be as simple or complex as you make them. It's all part of the experience. The "I'll mix this together and consume it" society makes me sad.

Hungarian Stuffed Cabbage - Long Lost?

I've sprinkled brown sugar over the top and a little white vinegar. I don't know why but I must have read to do that somewhere or someone once told me to.

Popped Sorghum: The New Smart Food?

"It's like smaller, slightly stale popcorn, and it's sort of annoying trying to gather together enough of the itty-bitty kernels to make up a mouthful of the stuff."

Yeah, it sure does sound great.

Is It Wrong to Yell "Hey, Amigo"?

It's said that this discussion has to be made. Remember when sticks and stones would break your bones but names would never hurt you. Get over it, amigos.

Ecuadoran Shrimp Cocktail (Cóctel de Camarones)

I don't care what you call it. I like shrimp, I like red onion, I like avocado. I'm in.
I'd think a cilantro garnish would work but I will try the mint.

Fattoush Dressing

I love fattoush salads. I order powdered sumac online from a spice house in Chicago.
