Friday Night in Lent ideas...

how about tortillas/tortilla chips. you could make a tortilla pie using corn tortillas. :) i admit i have an impish nature and i could picture your conversation, which made me laugh, so, i just HAD to find something with corn outside of its natural form in a recipe that he might actually, surprisingly like...

Old Brownie recipe, bad results lately?

usda requires a minimum of 80% butterfat. it could be that manufacturers had, originally, been producing their butters with a higher butterfat, but have, now, reduced it to the legal minimum.

Regional snacks for gifts?

if liquor is in the mix, Sloop Betty vodka is distilled in maryland and uses maryland ingredients. it won the gold best in show vodka at the 2012 New York World Wine and Spirits Competition and was awarded 94 points by the tasting panel magazine. and, if it matters, it's certified kosher. and a honey-flavored version has recently been released.

i haven't tried the honey version, yet, but i have enjoyed the straight vodka.

What Is Chowhound Now

ahhhh, there was no reliving dancing on the wall to frank's "new york, new york" at closing time. well, maybe some things are better left as vague memories.

Grace Garden - Chinese in Odenton

did you try calling?

Old Bay Tartar Sauce Filet o' Fish at regional McDonald's

2 for $4 here in the baltimore area.

restaurant/waitress adds to credit card bill. what to do?

so, does this mean that if you've given your card to the server and the server skims it and than later makes purchases using your skimmed card, then this isn't fraud because you gave your card to the server and visa states that because you gave your card to "them" "they can put whatever they want on it" then it's not fraud?

the butter brand may also make a difference. this thread discusses recent changes to generic and other butters.

Kitchen towels - am I just being OCD about this?

Food storage Russian roulette: what's your riskiest food safety gamble that went okay?

i grew up with smoked kielbasa. thing is, my family preferred it dry, so my father would hang several of the kielbasa rings behind the furnace for a couple of weeks. well, one year, a ring was forgotten and wasn't found until a year later. that ring was hard, shriveled and greaseless. best kielbasa ever. no stomach problems and we all lived. oh, and we did not cook the smoked kielbasa, we always ate it in its natural state.

Food storage Russian roulette: what's your riskiest food safety gamble that went okay?

ah, so you have a ski chalet- indoor pool and outdoor ice rink. you should start advertising and charging admission! :)

been there with the pool several times last year. and this past storm, i believe the weather forecasters that we'd only have a couple inches of snow and that the rain would wash everything away the next day. well, no rain, about 9 inches of snow compacted by the melt to a beautiful backyard patio rink. i'm enjoying watching the squirrels perform olympic-worthy ballets!

all kidding aside, i cannot even fathom what all of you in the norhteast are dealing with. here's to an early spring with a gentle melt.

i grew up with a german shepherd. she became ill and stopped eating, lost a lot of weight. the vet said to spoon feed her, so that's what my grandfather did. started with table food and progressed to canned food. mirta never again ate from the bowl. she would only eat when someone was spoon-feeding her.

i grew up on boiled potato homefries with onions cooked on bacon grease, too; however, our potatoe pieces were of various shapes.

The best first date spot, especially for foodies: the Sushi Bar. Agree or Disagree?

Is anyone else having problems when opening existing threads that you've posted on or are following? I am having the threads open without the ads showing and with all of the previously read posts showing as unread. And, yes, I've set my preference to have the read thread collapse.
