Patatas Bravas

I am hoping I can find some help on here. I want to patatas bravas that tastes like the dish I had in Madrid. Recipes for it are all kind of different. Does anyone know a truly authentic recipe for this? Bon Apetit's May issue on Spain some years back had a perfect recipe, but I cannot find it on either the BA website or Epicurious. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Yams vs. Sweet potatoes

This may be silly, but it makes me nuts when stores put those orange yams on their shelves and call them sweet potatoes. They are two different root vegetables and I wish they would get it right. Plus, it is almost impossible to get real sweet potatoes at the grocery store. Is this a peeve for anyone else??

Help a poor Los Angeles hound visiting Baltimore and DC

In Baltimore, do yourself a favor and go to Mama's on the Half Shell in the Canton neighborhood. All kinds of fresh fish, seafood, oysters. Mac & cheese to DIE for. Seriously good food. The orange and grapefruit crushes rock.

Also, near Greektown is a place called MIchaels. The place is a throwback and hasn't been redecorated for years, but you can't beat the food or prices. Fabulouse steaks, crabcakes are delicious and HUGE! Stuffed oysters were wonderful! Where else on earth are you going to get a 40 oz porterhouse for $20?? Enjoy!!
