Eggs and Chicken....Too Weird?

Chicken Francese/Francaise was the first dish that came to mind. Yum.

First REAL Food memory

Around the age of 3 standing next to the table while my great grandmother slipped me lobster that my mom said i couldn't have because I would choke on it. Yum. That and being fed crab while standing next to the adults picking on outdoor tables.

Help me transform deviled egg or egg salad into something exciting...

You could try an interesting deviled egg dip and serve it in an ostrich eggshell with endive, celery, or pita.

Making Your Own Butter

I thought it might be fun to try. Does anyone have a good method? Is it any better than store bought?

I'm in a slump for side dishes, Help!

If you like onions this recipe is great. So simple and tastes like it has way more ingredients than it does.

Help with BBQ/grilling shower gift

I have seen wood chip sampler packs. You can do a basket of different chips and planks.

Or a fire extinguisher.

Food for a shark-themed party?

not sure if this is what you are looking for. It's heavy on the kitsch...

Chum Punch- red base with rum and swedish fish served in a fish bowl, or slightly more gross, a white bucket
Seafood Dip-with blue corn tortilla chips, you could stick a chip in the dip to look like a shark's fin.
Tea Sandwiches- wild salmon filling (or other environmentally smart seafood choices, you can print a guide from here and cut in the shape of a shark's tooth
Sugar Cookies- use a foot or hand cookie cutter, or even a ginger bread man. then cut out a "shark bite" and dust the edge of the bite with red sugar

Debbie Meyer green bags.

My grocery store now has green produce bags that say they help keep the product fresh. I am wondering if it is the same technology? Regardless, they are free and I have some vegetables that are over a week old and still crisp and tasty.

What's your "go-to" recipe for a crowd?

My go-to is Frogmore stew. One pot and you can switch it up to use whatever fresh seafood is available.

Everything is Better Topped with an Egg

Mmmm. This post reminds me of the scene in Spanglish where Adam Sandler makes that sandwich dripping with egg goodness. I have dreams about that sandwich.

What do you eat when you are home alone? [moved from Home Cooking]

When I am home alone I tend to forgo complete meals and find myself snacking in front of the refrigerator. Rolling turkey slices around my boyfriends martini olives. Dipping claussen pickles in blue cheese dressing. Spooning horseradish on pretzels. Scooping up chocolate pudding with potato chips. Wrapping slices of rare roast beef around mustard dipped string cheese...
