Your favourite carb substitute?

Quinoa is good, along with all natural broths, like chicken broth. I also love spaghetti squash, which is fairly starchy and can be topped with marinara and cheese. Almond Nut-thins are also quite good with a little cheese of choice on top. Im a fan of nuts and nut butter, eggs any style (try deviled eggs, just don't eat a bunch). Udi's gluten free bread is a good substitute for "real" bread, but make sure you toast it, and if you are craving gluten free pizza, Amy's has a good one and also a good GF burrito. Feel Good Foods also offers good GF egg rolls if they r available in your area. I find if I stick with the protein and veggies for a week, I can continue to eat that way, but everyone is different. Good luck!

Mushroom Bisque in Atlantic or Ocean County?

Does anyone know of a restaurant in these areas that makes mushroom bisque regularly and well? I've been craving it and all my searches have turned up nothing. I do make my own sometimes (since I know some of you will tell me to do just that), but I'd like to try someone else's. Thank you!

What's your "perfect" sandwich ?

Summer Jersey tomatoes, sliced thick, with (Hellman's) mayo, salt and pepper on good white bread. Eat it quick!

Constantly freezes up on me

If I use this site for more than just a few clicks, it freezes up. It acts like it's loading and then gets stuck. It actually worked better for me when I had dial up. The site needs to work on this. i have seen may complaints about the slowness and inability to maintain continuity. It's frustrating. I don't encounter this on other sites anywhere near as consistently as I do on here. In fact, at this point, it's to be expected. Please try to fix this bug. Love the site; hate being annoyed by not being able to properly navigate due to site issues.

Lunch-----Tuckerton Seaport

Late, but there's a Scojo's right in the Seaport, Stewarts right next door and Doyles Pour House south on Rte 9/Main street. Of these, Doyles is the best, IMHO. Where did you end up going? Oh yeah, pretty much across the street by Tip Seaman park is a Chinese place. I've never been but they get good reviews...

Why didn't you just ask for an ice bucket or the equivalent? Makes no sense to me.

Joe Italiano's is a solid choice. Old school Italian at it's best.

Lukewarm chicken wings. Especially if they weren't cooked crisply to begin with. Blech.

Wedding Venues

Mallard Island Yacht Club, Bonnet Island Estate, and The Stateroom, all within a couple miles of each other, are all great choices. The Stateroom is the most "indoor" of these, and the least costly. I've had food from all three. Can't really go wrong. Merrimakers caters BIE and TS. Taste Catering does MIYC.

Biggest Cooking Show Pet Peeves

Ha! My girlfriend and I always make fun of Giada and her pronunciations. There was one that was particularly amusing because we had no IDEA what she was saying. We pronounce it "Flugulah". Incidentally, I can do without the cleavage-bearing close ups and low cut tops she constantly wears. Yeah, we know. You're a "sexy cook". I miss Two Fat Ladies.

how do you eat your grits?

I saute onion and a leeeetle bit of garlic until translucent, add grits and cream and then add sharp cheddar at the end. Topped with butter, fresh bacon bits and an over easy egg on the side, it's heaven. If Im making shrimp and grits, I do it the same way, cooking the shrimp in the leftover bacon grease and then add some fresh chopped green scallions and diced tomatoes on top. Oh, and Frank's Red Hot, of course!

Scallions: my favorite "new" ingredient

So good tossed over shrimp and cheesy grits. The recipe I use is from Bobby Flay and I found it on Serious Eats. They really make the dish. And there's bacon in it, so that automatically makes it better :)

The Continental, top floor of The Pier shops at Caesars. The seared tuna is delicious, and the drinks are strong. Cool setting, too.

Whitehouse Subs - Trump Taj Mahal

Whitehouse Subs - Trump Taj Mahal

I have two White House subs in my possession right now from the Taj location. They are identical to what you will find at the original store, which I have also been to many times. If history and "the experience" is important to you, you should go to the original and wait to be seated. If not, the Taj spot is quick and easy. The egg and cheese on a kaiser makes a great breakfast and the Regular sub is excellent. I also like their turkey and cheese.

I went to Bill's Gyro the other day for the first time and I wasn't all that impressed. Fries were undercooked and the chicken gyro was only okay. Also the tszatsiki (sp) sauce was kind of gelatinous. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing.

I recommend Pho Sydney if you like Vietnamese food. Cheap and delicious.

It's very good. Collard greens are excellent as is the mac and cheese. Worth the stop.

are ya prepping for Sandy??

Heck, yeah! We are slightly inland from Long beach island, but still across from a lagoon. I'm a nut with these things. Food, booze, water, cash, gas, flashlights, candles. Do not plan to evacuate. Eating everything in the fridge/freezer.
