How much do you spend on groceries each month?

My wife and I spend $850 a month, and that's not counting going out to eat. I do a lot of cooking, and I cook some cool stuff, though nothing truly extravagant.

My wife is gluten free, which costs us more, and I'm hypoglycemic, so cheap food just doesn't work with our systems. We just had twin boys and once they start eating real food I know our food bill will skyrocket. Since my wife is breastfeeding, she's eating a lot right now, and hopefully her appetite will trail off a bit.

Please discuss the nuances between Pernod/Arak/Ouzo

Made it and loved it. Loved the chicken, fennel and clementines. Most flavorful meal I've eaten in a long time. Glad I bought the Anak -- totally worth it.

First trip to NYC with kids in June need recs

Go to Peanut Butter and Co, near Washington Square Park. Everything on the menu is made with peanut butter! Fun for you and the kids.

Hey, so I was going to try the arak/clementine dish in the Jerusalem cookbook. Was it good? I've been comparing the price between Arak and Ouzo and it's only $20 vs $15 so I might spring for the Ouzo.

Where can I find a good selection of tahini?

I usually use Joyva, because I haven't been able to find anything else, but I'm just wondering why you don't like it. Also, if other people can name some brands they think are better, I would appreciate it.
