What is your absolute favorite dish from your cultural heritage?

I'm an honorary Swede by marriage, and so I love making skagenröra in the summertime. Instead of toast we often eat it on avocado. Mums!!

Help with "baby" themed dinner--NOT a baby shower

I suppose baby back ribs is to much of a gimme? :)

Incline Village in April

Saw your post here and in the North Lake Tahoe thread. I second the recommendation for T's. We love the tri-tip burrito.

Mofo's Pizza is an easy, good meal. I'm partial because the name cracks me up, but the pizza was good the last time I was there.

Wild Alaskan in the Raley's parking lot is a good choice. We've never had a bad meal there.

I don't really recommend the Hacienda unless you want bland Mexican. They may have stepped up their game since we last ate there, but we always found it to be mediocre.

Since you are staying at the Hyatt, their bar/restaurant Cutthroat's Saloon has some good menu choices. I used to love their bbq beef sandwich. It's been a few years since I've eaten there, but I try to recreate that sandwich at home anytime I have leftovers.

I'll talk to my husband and post again if we think of anything else, but check out the reviews at Urban Spoon. It can give you a good idea of hours and menus.

Mobile Food in Albuquerque

A relatively new guy on the scene runs Talking Fountain Kitchen. The food is outstanding. He moves around a bit, but the locations are always on his FB feed.

well known brands that just arent as good as in the past

I know this doesn't help, but in Sweden you can still get the McDonald's Apple Pie as it was meant to be made--FRIED. Every time we visit I eat my fill of that flakey, gooey deliciousness to tide me over until the next trip. :)
