Family heritage cast iron frying pan. Still going strong, and my favourite cooking pan.

So I blue crab is a possible protein source when I make this.

Any suggestions on cooking crab? Will frozen cook up in the soup, or...?

A somewhat dated example. We now have a constant barrage of ads in multiple media. Much more effective.

Let's not forget the hypnotic influence advertising has on some people.

New Pizza Joint at Donlands and Danforth - Big House Pizza

Exactly.

The food at Starbucks-Yay or Nay?

The protein box is the only savoury option I'll get there anymore. Their sweet options are eminently meh, for me. I will buy one if I want to linger longer, but it's not like a special treat.

Interesting thought, it takes the pressure off the chef, that's for sure.

Interesting, they were looking through something that had oven pictures, either a trade magazine or a catalogue (couldn't tell) when I was there last.

Good vs. Bad Pizza: Is there such a huge difference?

Not a cultist, but if I can walk an equal distance to a place that serves superb pizza and one that serves ordinary pizza, I'm going to the superb place. I will even walk a bit further to it.

But if I'm hungry and a mediocre place is around then, hey, I'll buy a slice and hate myself afterward.

Hell's Kitchen-it was never good but now it is so bad

If Ramsay doesn't fake vomiting every episode, it's not worth watching.

best pastas in Toronto, 2014

Some of their pastas (esp. lunch ones) are nothing to travel for, but the dinner pastas (like the one Charles mentions) are worth a trip out. I had a nice one with Manila clams, yuzu, shiso and a few other ingredients.

Based on your report, I think I'll go back now that they are "2.0" and try a less gimmicky pizza.

Healthy Delivery in Etobicoke???

Rose also has a more personal service. Etobicoke is certainly in her delivery area.

As I understand the web site, members get first pick, but if there are spots left over, then non-members can register at the guest rate.

Thanks. Sounds interesting. I also like how they emphasize using public transit.

5 Guys Burgers and Fries: Still don't see what the big deal is?

Went to 5 Guys once, that was enough for me. I was burping potatoes all night.

Regional Egg Roll Styles

In Toronto, it's usually cabbage and bean sprouts, maybe some tiny shreds of carrot, rarely some bits of ground pork.

Danforth Pizza House for sale

I got a pizza from there on Friday and quite enjoyed it. It seemed well up to the same quality as Angelo's.

I wasn't super thrilled that I got told forty minutes and then got told another twenty minutes when I came back. Still, it did mean the rain had let up quite a bit.

Here's hoping their business plan has them on track to make profits.

Chowfind: An authentic tasting 'Instant' Singapore Laksa Noodle La Mien good enough for Chowhounders!

I tried one bowl of each without any additions.

They were nice enough, but I agree you need to add more to make it a complete meal. There are some nice suggestions here I will try next time.
