Went to Francesco Centro Vasco a month ago, & was given a rubbery (overcooked) 2 1/2 lb lobster. Was so....disappointed!

Confirmed Dead Product List (What ever happened to.... Dept.)

If you're still looking for Rachel's Brownie's, try Blissful Brownies out of Hood River, OR. Dead-ringer for Rachel's; even better.

Best breakfast in or around Troutdale?

Wow....this is a hard one!! There's Wong's King for Dim Sum, that's about 10-15 min. away. I'm eagerly awaiting other answers to this!

Have you ever cooked a recipe from a Williams Sonoma catalog?

Trader Joe's turkey anyone?

Great idea.....we live in the Columbia River Gorge, so the nearest TJ's is a good hour-plus away. I will call to see if they can hold one aside.

Gourmet magazine to close

I am just so terribly sad. I just heard Ruth Reichl speak in Portland last week, & she was phenomenal. I just love her. Wish her the best of everything.....she deserves it.

Hough Bakery "Modernistic" cookies [Cleveland]

I'm now having memories of their finger sandwiches, & their wonderful mushroom pie. That was so.....good. Childhood birthday parties were incomplete without a Hough white cake with white icing. Now that I think about it, Hough catered my wedding reception many moons ago!

Need help in selecting high quality frozen appetizers

We love the mushroom turnovers from TJ's. I also love the escargot in brioche, and find that the spanakopita are also good.

What did your Mom always have on hand, that you NEVER do?

I love this thread! Okay, here it goes:

canned zucchini (with tomato & onion)
frozen veggies....never fresh
canned corned beef hash
canned fruit cocktail
frozen breaded veal cutlets (awful!!)
Banquet pot pies
cube steak
space food sticks
tab; complete with cyclamates!

Keep 'em coming....this is too fun!

Staub on Glass Cooktop

I would be concerned about Staub on a glass top....would the heft of Saub break the glass?? Then again, I do not like those glass tops!

Stuffed Jalapeno's

I mix together, (sm.)chopped chicken, shredded cheddar, shredded monterey jack, sour cream, scallions, & seeded & sm. chopped tomato. Stuff, bake for about 25min. @ 375 degrees. Fabulous!

Yup, another hors d'oeuvres query

If people like spicy food, I often make stuffed jalepenos. Mix together sm.diced chicken, shredded cheddar &/or monteray jack, some sour cream, sm. diced, seeded tomato, & sliced scallion. Stuff halved/cleaned jalepeno halves, & bake for @ 20-25 min. at 375 degrees. Fabulous!!

(Portland) Kornblatt's or Kenny & Zukes?

I've been to Kornblatt's many times, & 99% of the time enjoy it very much. Never been to K & Z, although have heard fabulous things about it. Based on word of mouth, I would choose the latter, & am anxious to go myself!!
