Breakfast in Cork, Dinner in Dublin

Hello!
Looking for recommendations for a good breakfast in Cork, and a dinner Sunday night in Dublin.

In Dublin we have already eaten at Parnell's, and wanted to go to the Pigs Ear but they are closed on Sundays. Looking for something non-seafood focused and with vegetarian options, under 50 euro per person.

Thanks!

4 Days in San Diego- Where should we eat?

Thanks for these ideas! I am open to almost all types of foods. I am a vegetarian but everyone else are omnivores and open to trying new places. We do love good cocktails (and are willing to spend the money if they are worth it) if you have any suggestions.

Visiting Family in San Diego from Jan 27-31. Not sure where we are staying yet, but we will have a rental car. We are looking mostly for casual places, and would love some suggestions. I know I am asking early but I am excited to plan my San Diego eating! If you have any suggestions of San Diego food blogs I would love to look at those too.

Thanks!

Hey, Domino's: Is It Enough to Admit Your Pizza Sucks, Without Making It Better?

I like Dominoes once in a while! Pineapple and hot sauce is my favorite combo.

Room Temp Party Food

It will be next Saturday in NH.. Not sure what the weather has been like there lately, but I am thinking hot! right now I am thinking I will just put everything on small plates so I have to replenish it quickly enough that it wont go bad. I am thinking of making:

Cheese straws
BLTs on cracked pepper biscuits
Truffled popcorn
Fruit kabobs
Rice Krispy treat pops
Cupcakes

I would still like to make 2 more types of finger sandwiches preferable without meat if anyone has any suggestions?

Room Temp Party Food

I am planning an outdoor shower and I am looking for some snack ideas that I don't have to worry about keeping hot or cold without any food safety issues (for about 4 hours.)

Specifically I would like a few different tea sandwich ideas, and then maybe something like a trail mix/chips/popcorn that still looks special and is delicious. Everything will be plated/packaged in individual portion sizes.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Food gift ideas

I am intrigued! Do you have good recipes for mustard and ketchup? I have never made my own condiments before, how long do they keep?

I love these ideas! I totally forgot all about the breakfast scene in the beginning. Blood orange is perfect, and the cake idea is great! I am so excited for this

Dexter inspired food for my halloween party

I love the TV show Dexter, and I am planning a Dexter inspired halloween party. Problem is, I want my food to be something from the show (or at least inspired by) but all I can come up with is... donuts. Haha. Which I will certainly have, but can anyone think of anything else I could make? I think Dexter eats some type of cuban sandwiches but I can't really remember. Help!

The Living Room

Anyone been here? Is the food good? Is it busy? Im thinking of eating here, and also noticed that they were hiring, so I might want to work here too.

Anyone?

Valentines Day near Faneuil Hall

I am bringing my husband to Boston for V-Day. We are coming early on the 13th, staying at the Bostonian near Faneuil Hall and leaving late on the 14th.

I am looking for lunch, dinner and a good place for drinks on the 13th, and breakfast (good coffee/bakery?) on the 14th.

We are in our early 20's.. looking for cool places with great food. We can spend a bit on dinner, but I would like reasonable places for breakfast and lunch.
We have a car but I would prefer to walk.
Can anyone help?

Home made Tomato Sauce For Pasta

These sauces sound delicious! I have always been a jarred sauce kind of girl, working my way through all of the brands trying to find one I am happy with (which has not happened yet) I am going to try making my own this week, but I wondered if anyone had a good recipe for puttanesca, my favorite when eating out!

Can I Make Chicken Soup With This?

My husband is sick in bed and I want to make some chicken soup... I don't feel like going to the grocery store so I was wondering if I could make something yummy and tummy-soothing with what I have already in the house:

Chicken tenders
Chicken stock
Whole wheat rotini or white linguini
Celery hearts
Baby carrots
Ginger and some dried spices

Would this work? How should I go about it?

A Salad with winter veggies

I like to roast veggies like butternut squash, sweet potatoes, red onions, broccoli and zucchini, and then toss them with mixed greens and top with goat cheese and some type of vinaigrette. mmmmm
