New season: Heartland Table

I agree. It's a show with a calm laid back feeling. I like it.

Totally agree with you! Having just the four with some cooks in the background took away from the show. Cutting the legs and thighs off and finishing them while the rest of the bird rests was the only good tip I came away with.

Giada just said she got a text from her husband to take the glasses off! Now that's funny!

Yes, I noticed that too. Age coming into play maybe? Lol! I actually think Ina is a good addition to this years show that is usually mediocre. The first year they did it was the best as they imbibed in the cocktails too early which became really noticeable towards the end of the show!

Farmhouse Rules--a new show on Food Network

I'm watching it right now and am a little disappointed. I'm anxious to hear what others think. I don't care for the host. I felt like she was talking down to me.

Duck fat in Bergen county

Just Google the 5 hour duck recipe for a fool proof method. Time consuming but if you are looking for that nice crispy skinned result it's worth it.

Duck fat in Bergen county

The Fresh Market in Montvale, on Chestnut Ridge Road has it. I think I've seen it occasionally at Kings Supermarket in Hillsdale too in the section where they sell D'Artagnan products. I always save duck fat when I roast a duck. I recently tried one of their Rohan ducks to roast. It was delicious!

Breakfast near the Hyatt Place in Fair Lawn

Thanks everyone for the Benny's suggestion. It was great! I love a place that makes their own corned beef hash!

Mitsuwa -- what should I pick up

Thanks for that info. I too feel overwhelmed when I see how many varieties they offer.

Herbs

I definitely like to grow my own for the most part. If it's an herb I would rarely use, then I do buy them. A&P in Woodcliff Lake has organic herbs available. Also Kings in Hillsdale.

Mitsuwa -- what should I pick up

My family loves Mitsuwa. After shopping in the grocery section we enjoy lunch in the food court. I love the ramen soup but they have quite a selection.
I always buy sashimi, sushi and pepper chicken from the prepared food section. I also usually buy some of their fresh meat (chicken hearts and livers, also pork jowel).
I have to say that there are many things that I love to try that I haven't even heard of before.
My kids also love the wide selection of Pokey.

Ina Garten - FOOLPROOF

I don't find her to be pretentious either. I find Giada much harder to take. I made Ina's Company Pot Roast for dinner last night. It was great! I don't know if it's in one of her books or not. I watched the show in which she made it this week and found the recipe on the FN website.

Hatch Chiles

I found them in The Fresh Market in Montvale,NJ. About $2 for a quart size container of fresh roasted whole chiles. Anyone know if I can freeze them? I have some recipes planned out but would like to stock up while they are available.

Have Windmill hot dogs gotten smaller?

John, Thanks for that bit of Callahan's info. I just might fry some of the Windmill's I buy this year! I usually grill them. My favorite, though, will always be Thumann's.

Have Windmill hot dogs gotten smaller?

Every Spring and Summer my local Kings supermarket in Hillsdale carries Windmill hotdogs. Just saw them last week and it struck me that they looked smaller.

Chowish, labor-Intensive Low-Carb recipes?

I made zucchini and yellow squash lasagna yesterday for my carb conscious husband. he raved about it. I admit, though, he is not a huge pasta fan. He wants me to make it again and I think I will try mcf's suggestion of baking the slices first as it was very wet.

Planning on Cooking Beef Heart for Valentine's Day

I would suggest getting veal(calf) hearts. They are a bit more mild than Beef hearts. My kids, who hate the too tender meat in pot roast love veal heart stew. I buy sliced hearts and cut them into cubes. I braise them as I would beef for pot roast. I like to use a good red wine, beef broth, a little tomato paste and various herbs. I don't have a written reipe but any pot roast recipe is good. I also like to add sliced sauted mushrooms. I serve it over noodles or mashed potatoes. My kids love the fact that the meat has a chew to it. It's a very inexpensive dish to make.

Turducken in New Jersey?

I would order one online from mabe Cajungrocer.com. I know my local Kings supermarket carries turduckens in their frozen meat section.

Fish markets in North Jersey

I love Anchor Seafood on Kinderkamack Rd. in Montvale. Besides fresh fish they make and sell some really delicious prepared foods. I really like their lobster bisque, white clam sauce and their homemade herring in cream sauce.
