Cherry Hill Gourmet market, Sheepshead Bay

I live 5 minutes from Cherry Hill and stop in about once a week. I just brought home for dinner the lulu kebab and Turkish rice . The Israeli eggplant salad is very good- pickles are okay but they do have an assortment of other pickled vegetables. My husband likes the pickled cabbage. Very nice selection of fruits and vegetables, cheeses, salami and smoked fish. Also condiments and jams. Baked goods look pretty but I have not been thrilled with them. There is also a good selection of frozen pierogies.
Best pickles in my husband's opinion is the Pickle Guys- Coney Island Ave and J

eight hours inOSJ

We will be visiting the city as part of our cruise and being a chowhound would like recommendations for everything from street food to restaurants. I would truly like to try specialties of the city that I can't get in NYC.
Thanks

New Indian Restaurant on Coney Island Avenue

I just tried this restaurant with my sister. We shared the Darbgar special dinner for two. I had the chicken Dansak curry and she had Lamb kurma. Both were very good. We really enjoyed our desserts-Rasmali and Gulab Jamon. I would recommend this restaurant and will be back to try different dishes

toppings for curried butternut squash soup?

I ended up serving the soup with chopped chives,chopped cashews and a squiggle of sour cream mixed with heavy cream. I had to keep it simple because we were serving 35 people.
I will try some of the other suggestions when I make the soup again. It was a big hit. Thanks for all the suggestions.

toppings for curried butternut squash soup?

i used Ship's green label Madras curry powder, about 2 teaspoons per 3lbs of cut up squash.
It gives the soup a little heat but it is not spicy. I have to please people ranging in age from10 to 85.
I might use some combination of chopped nuts, sour cream or heavy cream and chives. I still did not make up my mind.

GOOD Jewish Bakery in Brooklyn???

I just went to Teenas this morning. They do have corn bread, salt sticks, rye bread, pumpernickel, marble bread, onions rolls and more. I tried the corn and rye breads, the onion rolls and the salt sticks. I think the salt sticks are my favorite. I am no expert but I thought the breads were very good. Is it worth a shlep out to Canarsie? You will have to try it and let me know.

Problems with Passover Sponge Cake

I usually don't have a problem with my sponge cake, but this time it rose and than sunk in the oven. Same recipe, same pan. It still tasted good.
I tried a new recipe for a banana sponge cake; this one rose but slipped out of the pan when I inverted it. I use a regular tube pan, not non-stick, not greased.
Anybody have any ideas why this happens? Thanks

grilled cheese with mayo?

It really only works with the regular Hellmans. I don't think the Hellman's lite has enough fat .

can you freeze butternut squash?

I bought cut-up uncooked butternut squash from costco and don't think I will be able to use it for another week. Can I freeze it in it's bag or do I have to cook it first? Thanks!

How do you make great grits?

I was in Delaware and had them at the hotel everyday. They were thick, not soupy, with lots of butter and salt. I really don't know if there was anything else in there.
Thanks to everyone for the quick response; I think I will buy the instant and stone ground and try them both out.

Real Sichuan food in Bay Ridge

I like the sliced lamb w. cumin better than the beef. Non spicy dishes that are good are sauteed loofah and the sweet potato or pumpkin cakes. The waitress is so sweet that she brought out a raw loofah for me to see and wrote it down for me in chinese. Great place - my husband loves the dan dan noodles and the ma po tofu!

Old, traditional bakeries/pastry shops that still exist

If you want a really good bakery for Jewish bread and cookies, you can try Teena's in Canarsie. For good Italian bread and pastries you can go to Alliota(sp?) and Morietti(sp?) on avenue N and 45th street.
