Almost half of the world prefers instant coffee

Reading all the replies makes me want to purchase a jar of Tasters Choice. My first love at twelve yrs old.

How big of a Foodie are you? Take the quiz to find out!

Freakin 71%. I don't pair wine and rarely photograph. I think I missed the one about a deconstructed dish. Is that like having your hamburger bun on the side ? I dislike being labeled as a foodie anyway. Yippee !!!

Trader Joes fruit recall....see that place is going to kill all you loyalists!

No. Bed Bath and Beyond and many others. It's the parking in front of the store. There are four rows of parking spaces with two entrances. Even when you are slowly backing out I have had cars squeeze through. It's tight. You have to keep your head on a swivel. I park away next to BBandB, there's just more room.

Not to belittle Trader Joes. I shop there and like the store. I was there today. Love the store, hate the parking lot. And I have asked others where I live and say the same thing,

I agree. I drive a full size GMC pickup. It's a small and crazy parking lot.

santa cruz wineries

You might like Hunter Hill winery. I have had their wine and enjoyed it. Looked at the website and looks like a nice winery. Two miles from downtown Soquel. I also like Windy Oaks as mentioned.

How can I use up massive quantities of alcohol in cooking?

Leave it in a cupboard for someone to find after you leave. I'm sure you'll make some house cleaner or tradesmen very happy.

Oh no another tipping thread! When is no tip justified?

When the service and food sucks. And neither give a shit about what they are doing.

Has anybody installed a charcoal grill in their kitchen?

I still doubt this would be legal in Argentina. The U.S. and other countries follow the I.B.C. International Building Code. We used to follow the I.C.C International Code Council. But it is the I.B.C. that has the last say in building code.

Has anybody installed a charcoal grill in their kitchen?

Start by going to the building dept. in your jurisdiction and apply for a building permit.They might say yes or no, Do not guess at this.I am a general contractor and absolutely cannot say enough on how important this is for your project.

Restaurant blames cellphones for service complaints

I might believe that. I frickin hate cell phones in restaurants. Especially when I watched my friends wife text the whole time while we were having dinner at a nice restaurant in Napa. I bit my lip and just imagined myself jumping over the table and smashing it. Of corse if I would of said something I would have never hear the end of it.

Domestically Disabled

Exactly. With all of my OCD in the kitchen I am a slow cook. So many procedures. But I enjoy it. That's the way I do it. Sauce will be ready for the pasta..

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

NonnieMuss has a great topic about foods from your region that are embarrassing and disgusting. I had nothing to say living in California. I'm sure you can come up with plenty. But on the other hand we have a lot of great foods. What are foods from your region that you are proud of, and nobody does it better ?

Tipping during happy hour

I tip by how happy I am at happy hour. I drink, I get happy and I tip a lot.

In desperate need of ideas on what to cook my Mother-in-law for dinner!

Probably the easiest is to ask your husband what she might like to eat, He knows her better than anybody.

guests not offering to do dishes, is it rude?

No it's not rude. Just bring the wine. When ever I visit my sister and family. I have never done the dishes. But, I always help set up and clean up.

Pasta dishes. Do you serve as a 1st course or main ?

I have always made it a main course. Served with a salad or vegetables. All shapes. Dry,fresh,ragu, seafood... Growing up with Italian Americans this is what came to be. Do you serve it as a first course or serve as a main ?
