Go to Fat Choy for lunch when you arrive in town. Small place, fantastic food, nice folks. It's one of our favorites! Love the short rib grilled cheese!

Recs for OC Performing Arts Center / Costa Mesa?

Hello,

I did a search, but most of the results are 5-10 years old, so I thought I would ask for more recent information. We're going to a matinee show at the OC Performing Arts Center and are looking for a place to have dinner afterwards. We love Marche Moderne and have been there many times, but want to try a different place this time and are looking for recs. Definitely chow-worthy, can be $ or $$$, we like all kinds of food, but don't drink alcohol. Thanks, hounds!

Squirt is still around. My local grocery store carries both regular and Ruby Red Squirt, we buy it often.

My chili is a little to spicy

I have heard about using lemon juice as well, I tried it once in a dish that was too spicy, and it worked!

One of our cats looooves pizza! Whenever we have some, I'll hold a slice up to her and she'll take a big bite and eat it!

Can Recipe for Muffin Tin be Made in Pyrex Dish?

I know that if you look on the back of a box of cake mix, they have different baking times for cupcakes vs. round layers vs. a 9x13 pan, etc., perhaps you could use that as a reference?

Left-handers - how do you handle your cutlery?

I'm exclusively left-handed, and I do the same as you. I cut food with the knife in my left hand, then put it down and pick up the fork or spoon in my left hand to eat with. I don't see a big deal with this either, it comes naturally to me to do it this way as well.

Caesars restaurants

We like Mesa Grill, but only for lunch, not for dinner. We had a poor experience at dinner there one time. They have one of my favorite lunch/brunch dishes there, though, the eggs benedict with the chicken sweet potato hash and green chile hollandaise, so good!

Napa Rose customer service

I've never had a problem. Are you calling the restaurant directly? I've always spoken to a person, never got a recorded message. Hmmm...sorry it didn't work out for you.

Baked/Roast Chicken - and then?

When I roast a whole chicken, we typically eat the legs and thighs and have the breast left over. I use it a few days later and either make Mexican lasagna (like layered enchiladas), jambalaya (with sausage as well), or a big pot of soup.

New Penzey's store coming to Anaheim

Celebrating an 80th birthday, restaurant recs?

Hello,

My in-laws live in Seattle and we will be visiting soon to celebrate my father in law's 80th birthday. Looking for a special place for a special dinner to celebrate.

Quiet atmosphere, as he doesn't like noisy environments (this is a requirement), and perhaps a private room we could reserve? (this is not necessary but would be nice). Not too dim, so we can take lots of photos! There will be a minimum of 6, maximum of 9 people, or so.

We're all foodies and fairly adventurous eaters, and since this is a celebration, a more upscale or fancier type place would be great.

Thanks for any advice!

Senor Fish is Duarte has closed

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to post that the Senor Fish location in Duarte recently closed. There was no announcement or anything. we just tried to go a couple of times in the past 2 weeks and found them closed. Peeking through the doors, we saw the soda machine, etc. dismantled and a phone call confirmed it. I am very sad! Ate there at least once or twice a week since they opened!!

Tijuana's Tacos at 485 W. Holt in Pomona. Tried horchata at various places, theirs is the best! I would never have known about this place without you guys, thanks hounds! We go about once a month or so...

Fun kitchen tips to share? - moved from Home Cooking board

When I buy a bunch of celery, I wrap it in aluminum foil before storing it in the refrigerator. It lasts much longer this way, for weeks!

Fun kitchen tips to share? - moved from Home Cooking board

I learned to make iced tea by filling a pitcher with water, tossing in 4 tea bags (without the paper tags!) and putting the pitcher in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours (2-3 days is OK) before removing the tea bags. Super easy and works great!

Should I get a Costco membership?

I would say no. I have the same situation as you, re household size and weekly shopping. I've had a membership for the past 2 years but have only actually gone once or twice in that time. I'm not going to renew it...

Paprika Potato Chips?

I am with you on that. I had paprika chips in Switzerland and they were really good. I also dislike BBQ chips.
