Help!! Any NY Daily News Readers with This Recipe??

Hi!

I'm not sure if this is the best place to look for this information, but I'm deperate and need your help.

I'm looking for a recipe from the NY Daily News on June 16th, 2011. It was an article entitled "BBQ Battle". I think it was part of the Lifestyle section but I'm not sure.

I am trying to make the "Cha-Cha Skirt Steak" for a BBQ Sunday so I took the article with me shopping but somehow I managed to leave the article behind! I searched high and low, went back to the grocery store and googled until I could google no more - It's no where to be found. I remember most of the ingredients but I don't want to forget anything. If anyone can find the recipe and please post, you will save my Sunday BBQ!

Thanks so much!

What's the harm in letting your dough rise for too long?

Will do! I saw this while perusing cookbooks two weeks ago sort of snorted at the title and kept walking. It seemed too ridiculous to be true so I didn't even grab it to take a look. Dough that lasts up to two weeks? Fresh bread daily? I could fall in love with that book!

What's the harm in letting your dough rise for too long?

I've been struck with a midnight craving for some warm, fresh crusty bread slathered in butter.

I was going to go mix a quick, no-knead dough, let it rise overnight in the fridge and bake in the morning but of course the recipe only calls for a 90 minute refrigerated rise. Unfortunately there's no way I can stay awake long enough for a rise, proof and bake right now, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to satisfy my bread craving.

Is there any harm in letting it rise overnight so I can proof and bake first thing in the morning?

Maybe you have a few good recipes that would allow an overnight rise? and why don't I ever get these baking urges at a reasonable hour?!

A&P stores closing; apparently one in Yorktown Heights

No. That was rude, I wasn't told by anyone who works there as no one works there yet, I was told by one of the officials in the Peekskill area. If their information is wrong and your assumption is right then congratulations, you win.

Thyme in Cortlandt Manor

Awesome, I haven't heard of this place. I've been trying to plan a lunch date with my mother for days and she has finally agreed to go tomorrow. We haven't settled for a place to go yet but something casual would be nice, if Thyme fits the bill I'll report back!

How do you define trashy?

White trash cooking is cooking your chicken in the microwave in the same packaging you bought it from the supermarket in.

Yes, I was served this in someone's home. No, I did not eat it!! It's still my worst nightmare!

Oh God, I hope there's not a repeat of C-Town. It's helpful when I need last minute groceries (as I live about 2 minutes away) but I need a place I can buy good specialty ingredients sometimes! The way I was told Valley Market was supposed to carry some good quality products *fingers crossed*

one dinner near 30th Street Station, Phila

I second Bistro St. Tropez. Strange location but good food nonetheless. Had a good celebration dinner there with 5 others, 3 of which were not the foodie type and 2 who were, everyone really enjoyed the meal.

What is the Best Condiment You Ever Had?

I love chipotle mayonnaise (even though I hate mayo)
ginger/scallion sauce
french dijon mustard
aceto balsamico di moderna
au jus
and
butter

I'm not sure if butter counts as a condiment, but it should be because there's nothing butter isn't good on or with.

Italy Trip Report Part 1 - Rome (Long)

I rarely ate out in Rome and typically stumbled into places starving but I had an amazing meal at La Scala in Trastevere. On busy nights expect a wait to be seated, sit outside if the weather is nice enough. Trastevere is pretty hard to navigate so with it's winding and narrow cobblestone streets, just look (or ask for!) Piazza della Scala in Trastevere!

It was so good I went back again with friends and had yet another fabulous meal. Enjoy Rome, I love it there!

A&P stores closing; apparently one in Yorktown Heights

It's opening up on Main street Cortlandt Manor/Peekskill area, just before the entrance to Shoprite. It's replacing the Hollywood Video that shut down some time ago. There is a Home & Hearth and Tuxedo shop there also. I see the signs are up, but the last time I passed it was still empty.

I cannot for the life of me remember what the name of the place is though.

MacGyver in the kitchen

Just last week I lost the cookie cutter I planned to use for cutting ravioli and ended up using the cap of a Pam Cooking Spray can. It made perfectly sized ravioli circles.

A&P stores closing; apparently one in Yorktown Heights

There is an A&P in the Cortlandt Town Center which should be staying open in case you are looking for a replacement. I'm not familiar with another A&P in Yorktown aside from the Triangle Center.

The dump of an A&P in Peekskill is rather pathetic, but then again that whole "shopping plaza" is a bit of a mess. I'll be glad to see the whole place renovated.

A new Whole Foods-style market is opening in Cortlandt within the next few weeks though. I'll be interested to see if it carries a larger range of specialty products than the typical supermarket.

Hi there,

(I hope I'm posting this in the proper place)

I've visited this site for a lot of food information for some time now, I google a question and sometimes find the answer posted here but it never occurred to me to join the site. So now here I am, the newest newbie.

Hopefully I'll have some fun stuff to contribute but certainly I'll have questions needing answers. Most satisfying to the people I live with, I'll stop talking the THEM about food and start talking to all of you :)

I'm going to fiddle my way around the board and try to figure out all the cool things I've been missing out on.

Take care,
happy cooking (and eating!)
