Flashback: Menu ideas for 70's/80's potluck. Tupperware optional.

Crabbies! Yes, I love these. We have them every year as part of our family's all-appetizers-and-desserts Christmas party. My aunt can barely get out of the kitchen with a full tray!

Best Ipswich area restaurant suggestions?

Oh, I forgot about that place! And, come to think of it, Cathy's Country Kitchen is way better than Stone Soup for breakfasts.

Best Ipswich area restaurant suggestions?

Agreed. The Choate Bridge Pub has fantastic steak tips. Also, Stone Soup has terrific breakfasts.

caramel sauce - question

how long would homemade caramel sauce (made with butter and cream) last in the fridge? i'm thinking of giving some jars as christmas gifts this year but am wondering if it will only last as long as the cream's expiration date. any ideas?

question about silpat mats

i have one original silpat and one exopat (which i've read is an acceptable substitute). both have been washed and used many, many times, and they STILL have that odor! and i've never used them in an oven over 450 degrees - i mostly just use them for cookies up to 375 degrees or so. it's just so frustrating, because they are such a great alternative to parchment paper.

question about silpat mats

has anyone else experienced an odd smell when using a silpat in the oven? mine gives off an almost-burning plastic type odor, and it usually imparts this flavor into whatever has been baked on it (usually cookies). any idea on how to get rid of this problem? or should i just get a new one??

reasonably priced place - dinner for 12?

i guess maybe $50 or less per person. and we'll eat just about anything, but it should be something kind of fun and festive. i'm dying to try brookline family, but i think i was thinking of something a little bit fancier than that for this occasion.

Raspberry Coffee Cake?

Does anyone know of a recipe for a raspberry coffee cake? I swear I have read about one, possibly in one of my own cookbooks, but wanted to see if anyone here had any ideas that spring to mind. Thanks!
