Pasadena holiday food gifts, please

The baked goods at Little Flower are pretty spectacular, too - scones or cookies are great. Porta Via has some wonderful Italian foodstuffs that would make nice gifts.

I added a scoop of unsweetened whey protein powder. The pancakes are sweet, but we just add less or no syrup.

Thanksgiving smoked turkeys

Whole Foods has them - at least the Arroyo store.

It's the Spanish one from Daniele and I'm pretty sure it's chorizo. Spanish style chorizo is a cured meat similar to salami with a LOT of paprika as opposed to Mexican style chorizo which is closer to a bulk sausage. They're both great, but totally different. I've seen chorizo at CPWorld Market, and you might try calling local salumerias or any place that imports Spanish food. It's hard to find where I live (LA) because the Mexican is MUCH more prevalent.

Where to Buy Live Lobsters

Call Bristol Farms. I know the one in South Pas has them all the time, I assume the other locations do as well.

What's for Low-Carb Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner? #4

I've been sadly off the wagon, but constantly attempting to get back on! Made this last night -very tasty, and nice to have a Chinese food alternative without all that starch:

I like the organic not low sodium chicken broth - it's the best chicken broth I've found, and markedly different from the other TJ's chicken broths. The beef is pretty good, and I like the miso ginger. Not a fan of vegetable or turkey, but that may be an aversion to vegetable and turkey broths.

A really really difficult vegan thanksgiving challenge

A root vegetable cobbler or pot pie would also make a good dish, if you could find a vegan version of the pastry (maybe phyllo? Vegan pie crust?)

Tried and true recipes for a casserole/something in a baker?

This is one of my favorites. It would be easily halved, I think, as well.

Yay - the Beef Bolognese ravioli. I just sauced them with a little butter. Daughter, an avowed ravioli hater, decided she liked these, and husband ate his portion and then cooked himself the rest of the package.

Yay: The cookies and creme cookie butter. Feels more like junk food than either Nutella or Speculoos - maybe because it's lacking that European veneer of civility? Either way, this is really just a way to mainline oreos (or Joe Joe's). A dangerous, dangerous way.

The kraut doesn't contain caraway seeds. It has a good garlic flavor, though. Ingredients: Cabbage, Persian Cucumbers, Sea Salt, Garlic.

I know this is too late for you, but I've enjoyed the food and drinks I've had at the Proper very much.

How much should $1000 worth of groceries last a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teens that eat like adults? Please help!

I spend about $200-$250 week on family of four in LA. And speaking to my friends, that's pretty normal.

85°C Bakery Cafe opens in Pasadena

Love Flour + Tea. I find their mochi bread addicting.

looking for a diff. stuffing recipe

For me it's not Thanksgiving without fresh sage stuffing, but I've made a couple of great alternatives -
Cornbread stuffing with bacon and leeks: http://www.thedomesticfront.com/cornb...
and a sourdough stuffing with swiss chard and onions:

What about a Brunswick stew?

I made them with sliced bananas incorporated into the pancake, drizzled with some of the (fabulous) Turkish honey.

NAY on this from me, too. It's bitter and nasty. Thinking about returning.

I will give a pass for Hidden Valley, esp if you have kids.

YAY to the toasted coconut pancake mix. It's JAW and bakes up fluffy sweet pancakes with a lot of coconut flavor. I kept thinking of Hawaii as I was making them...

Yay on this too. I used it to make crispies - it was perfect!

Yay - Turkish honey. It's a bit thinner and less viscous than the other honey I've had, but it has a terrific, complex flavor.

Meh to Nay - Lamb Kofta Meatballs (frozen). Weird texture, very strong gamy lamb taste. The sauce makes them edible, but only just.

What cookbooks have you bought lately, or are you lusting after? September 2014 edition! [old]

I like the saffron hazelnut rosewater chicken from Ottolenghi, too. Jerusalem: The turkey zucchini burgers are a mainstay, and the pasta with yogurt and peas. And the Kofte, and the roasted cauliflower salad ...

Here's the recipe - http://www.thedomesticfront.com/pappa...

Haven't made it in a while, but it's calling to me. Took my poblanos this week and made Chiles en Nogada this weekend instead - roasted poblanos stuffed with picadillo, topped with a walnut cream sauce and pomegranate seeds.

pumpkin pie recipe

This is my absolutely favorite pumpkin pie recipe - it's a tad looser and creamier than the back of the can recipe (which, IMO, makes it better) and the spicing is spot-on. My aunt makes it for Thanksgiving every year.
