Thank you for your response. Sounds like we'll be trying fish and chips several times during our stay at WB.

Thanks for the input! We love fish & chips so will put T-Dock on our list. Is Florence close to WB?

Thanks so much for the suggestions. We too like Bandon but we are going to be in Winchester bay for a group camp out and we have some free time for meals on our own. We thought coos bay was closer to WB than Bandon was.

Thank you for your input! I'm relieved to know that there are some restaurants in the Coos Bay Area even tho I'll have to do the scouting myself. Thanks again.

Aren't there any restaurants in coos bay or surrounding area where visitors can get a bite to eat?

We are planning to be in the Coos Bay Area in June for about a week. Any suggestions of places to eat? Not looking for fancy, just good food, maybe a good hamburger or some fresh seafood? Appreciate any input.

Recipe organiser / app

I've used mastercook for years. It works great on a windows desktop but I don't think there's any way to use it on an iPhone or tablet. It is fairly easy to import recipes from the web as long as you can save the recipe as a text file. I'm sure there are better recipe programs available now that will work across all machines but I have thousands of recipes in my data base that I've collected and saved for years and I haven't found any app or program that can access my mastercook data base. MC does print out both single recipes as well as a cookbook.

Anaheim Packing District bang^4

Thanks for the input. Food may not come highly recommended but my group really wants to see what's been done to the old packing house.

Can someone tell me if there is seating where a group of people can sit together after buying "take away" food? A group of ladies would like to visit the APD but everyone wants a different lunch.

Disneyland for 5 days in November - seeking grocery stores and lunch/dinner options

My husband has a dinner meeting once a month at the Jagerhaus and loves it. He always gets the bratwurst and red cabbage and says it's the best he has ever eaten (and we've been to Germany several times.)

Who do you follow on the Los Angeles board, and why?

I too would like an OC board. I think more OC people would speak up about OC restaurants if we had our own board. The way it stands now if someone mentions an OC place someone from LA makes disparaging remarks about food in OC.

Cooking with peanut butter

I frequently see Asian recipes that call for peanut butter. We only buy natural peanut butter (just peanuts and salt). Can this be used or do I need a peanut butter like skippys or jiff?

Crepes like the Magic Pan?

There's a crepe restaurant in Belmont Shore. It is done up like a French creperie and I thought it was quite good. They serve both savory and dessert creeps as well as quiches.

Yuma

Thank you Ed for such good tips. We'll definitely stay away from Italian! We are really looking forward to spending some time in your neck of the woods.

Yuma

We are going to be in yuma for several days next week and wonder if anyone has updates on the restaurant scene there. I've read past posts but none are very recent. Is Los Manjares de Pepe still highly recommended? Good Mexican, Italian or steakhouse all are appealing to us.

Use for an eye round roast

The latest Cooking Light magazine has a nice sounding recipe that turns an eye of round into sandwich slices or you could make tacos, fajitas, or salad out of the cooked meat.

OC restaurant week, where would you go?

OC restaurant week starts 2/23 with some nice sounding restaurants offering reduced lunches and dinner options. Anyone have any input on good choices.

Mrs. Knott's Fried chicken dinnner restaurant, what else is on the menu besides Fried Chicken as a main course, or is that all there is ???????

Was just there for lunch. Boysenberry jam was in one of those little sealed packages made by Smuckers. Biscuits were a little too dark on the bottom. Chicken noodle soup was okay but the cabbage was soggy. Chicken was just adequate.

How do I cook really tender green beans?

We like our green beans well done too and I find that frozen green beans never get "done". For fresh green beans I start them in cold water, bring to a boil, and then simmer uncovered for about 45 minutes. Sometimes I fry up bacon and chopped onion in the pot before I add the beans and cold water. Another option is to use canned green beans.

Sauerkraut

It's been refrigerated. Looks exactly like it did when I bought it but the date says best if used by 11/13. The only way we really like sauerkraut is in a Reuben sandwich.

Sauerkraut

Thank you. Guess I'd better throw it out.

Sauerkraut

How long will an opened jar of fresh sauerkraut last? I bought a jar that was in the deli section at the grocery store to make Reuben sandwiches and now have 3/4 of the jar left.

Sauerkraut how long

I have a jar of sauerkraut that has sat opened in my refrigerator for a couple of months. Is it still safe to use? It looks fine, no mold, smells like sauerkraut. I only used a small amount in a Reuben sandwich, stored the rest and now would like to make another sandwich.
