Thank you for your response. I seem to recall Chow sponsored and posted collections of recipes, with a common theme or prime ingredient. I used to d/l them and self-publish for my own collection of cookbooks. I don't see "collections" like them any more.

Not a big fan of fried potatos, but onion rings? With fried eggs on top and chili garlic sauce...yummo

I would agree if a woman is wearing a hat, but I still feel a man's hat should ALWAYS be remove. Please see:

Although it was the only way Mom could get me to eat them growing up, not any more. Today, I'd add chili garlic sauce only if it was part of a larger dish (eg, breakfast burrito), but not on plain eggs.

Suggestions for rich and heavy cheesecake, please?

I still prefer Carnegie Deli, but that may be too much for your taste

The easiest possible cherry dessert

Defrost and put over a mound of good ricotta, then drizzle honey and lightly dust with cocoa powder.

Let's talk about Penzey's:

Been to the one in W. Hartford. Loved it. But find that even the smaller containers would last almost 'forever' before used up. Too bad you can't order one or two tablespoons at a time.

Do you hold Grudges against Restaurants? And for how long?

As a quality manager, I know the general public will cease visiting a store/restaurant/business faster for bad service than for a bad product or meal. Not feeling like a valued customer will have people voting with their feet...a bad meal can be forgiven...once. But bad service is a killer.

Dried Fig Shortage?

Along with the usual dried figs in the "raisin section", I really like the glazed figs Ive fund in the cheese bins in S&S here in CT. Love them with clementines

Adding stuff like lemons to beer - good idea? Why? [moved from General Topics]

Booze and beer? Sounds like a boilermaker to me, or at least a depthcharge.

garbanzo beans

Cook a can or two undrained until softened in some EVOO with a good measure of minced parsley and pour over pasta. Season to taste, add grated cheese.

The best of Connecticut?

Pagliacci does good pasta, fer sure, and they have no problem doing up my special calzone (Thanks, Dennis), but I find their pizza to be somewhat bland.

Are You a Heretic: Do You Find Mozzarella and Provolone Flavorless?

Most grocer stores will stock something like Auricchio (sp?) provolone...half moon shaped, sliced less than an inch thick and vacuum sealed as a sharp provolone...harder and much more flavor than cold cut style.

Coffee at work: When will we hit the tipping point?

Although many places I've worked had lousy FREE coffee, after suffering through coffee in the Navy, I've learned not to complain. I was in charge of our wardroom and was abruptly chewed out for cleaning the coffee urns, removing literally years of black scale from inside them. As long as I have my half-and-half to cut through it, I'll drink it.
