take-out in/around Hillsborough, NJ

Alphonso's (Italian) has decent dinners and great garlic knots. Pizza is a bit better than average. I haven't tried anything else around there to compare it.

The Merchant in Jersey City?

Haven't been there in a while maybe 6 months ago, but I had a really good hangar steak there. I can't remember what sides or dessert I had but I remember they were average at best.

in search of the perfect blender

Have you tried the Blendtec blender? i've never tried it but it looks like it will blend the hell out of anything.

Is it wise to freeze liver, bacon?

I IQF (Individual Quick Freeze) bacon all the time. Seperate the slices of bacon and freeze them, once frozen you can put them together into one package. Then you can just defrost whatever amount you want.

Batali got the boot (from FN)

I agree that it was stupid for FN to let Mario go but don't go putting Giada in the same class as Rachel Ray and Sandra Lee. Yes she can be annoying at times but shes a trained chef not like the others that were previously mentioned.
