Chow- please make a mobile app!!

Only in the review section per recipe, so not really. Hence why I'd prefer a Chow app.

I thought it MUST have been asked already. I never use Epicurious's site over Chow's. With their new app though I may switch over. It's so much easier to use!

I just downloaded the epicurious app, which is nice, but it makes me want a chow app even more! The content of this site is better. Almost more importantly, the user base of chow is much more congenial and sophisticated in the kitchen. Having an app similar to epicurious will make using chow recipes and discussion boards a lot more fluid. Anyone else agree???

Vegetarian Butternut Squash and Swiss Chard Polenta Lasagna

This turned out great for me! I swapped the cheeses out for skim ricotta and lower fat gruyere and Asiago. I also had a ton of extra polenta so maybe just make 1 cup.

Upscale Wine Bars in Baltimore

Seconded on wine market!

cozy wine bar in downtown Baltimore?

Wine market cafe in locust point is excellent. You can get wine at market price with $9 corkage which ends up saving a lot of money for good wine. Food is awesome. Happy hour specials are excellent. Highly recommend it!

Pork and Pâté Vietnamese Sandwich (Banh Mi)

Anyone have a good recipe to make the pork pâté from scratch?

Inexpensive (Wedding) Catering options in DC

I agree it is very hard to do a wedding for $50 or so a head, you have to make comprimises and do some non-traditional things... but it IS doable- see my post at the end!

Inexpensive (Wedding) Catering options in DC

ping pong dim sum has great food and ranges from 25-45 a head for food. They also have great amenities for "foodies" like a "rent a chef" for $150 to teach a dumpling class to your guests. Their with-alcohol estimate to my fiancee and I was 50/head. We ended up going with a more traditional option, closer to us when my mom didn't like the idea of dim sum.

They also have a sound system you can use an ipod with as long as you have at least 130 guests or so.

Vegetarian Pelau–Stuffed Peppers

This recipe was excellent. I like it best with 1/2 the amount of sugar. Has anyone tried it with light coconut milk? I love me some coconut milk, but man is it fatty.

I agree with pipistrello, I like them the 2nd day even better than the first.
