Thoughts on Italian Reception food

You hit a lot of my favs, the mini cannoli should hold up well as they have less filling that the large. Keep the arancini in a low oven, they'll stay crisp and warm. When should I show up.

Deep frying = XX extra calories. Anyone????

Not necessarily the frying but, usually the coatings and batters add a lot to the calorie count.

Fruit Imported From Mexico

I haven't heard of any slight or acceptable risks. What may they be, facts not opinions.

Fruit Imported From Mexico

Would you say the same about fruit from Chili, we get lots of imports from other countries, grapes, bananas, mangos etc. Most have been eating such produce for years with no issues.

Some recent Merrimack Valley eats / lunch

I'd add PJ Pizza on rte 28 in Methuen, really good Italian meat pie. Also, in Methuen Piro's Italian Bakery and Korbani's Bakery for fresh Lebanese pita bread and other goodies. Haven't to Café Azteca for Mex in a while but, it was always very good.

Abe and Louie's.

They have a very good bone on swordfish chop, I also like the rib eye. A few hundred may cover that.

Kane's eyeing "regional rollout"

Jumping the shark.... Their claim to fame is a large cinnamon bun...wow that's something new.

There are tons of local mom & pop donut shops scattered all over the country that are really good and have a loyal local following.

I like Kane's but, don't think this is a brilliant idea.

Best Italian Restaurant in North End

Do yourself a favor and go to Rino's in Eastie, worth the diversion and a short ride from the NE.

Dunkin D coffee at home

First, I follow the recommended measurement directions on the bag. Next, I brew with a French Press, works for me.

Even more of a sham. Now you've really got to have advanced math skills.

Question about roasting chicken carass and then freezing

I always freeze chic parts, wing tips, back bones etc, raw, then roast when I make a stock.

I like the top of the sign 'was $3.00'. Well if my math is correct, 4 divided by $12.00 is $3.00. Where's the savings.

The buy one get many free, what a pile of crap. You did the math and found it isn't a deal at all. Except for the fact that you bought more than you needed. Just mega market games to get you in the door. Then they tell you that you saved ninety dollars on your ten dollar purchase, right!

I overcooked my cherry jam

Loosen it up with some brandy, serve over vanilla ice cream.

Stuff you miss at the market

The insulated bag at the store, they kept ice cream from melting. Buying meats wrapped in butcher paper. Fruits still wrapped in their individual tissue papers. Loose variety of nuts that you scooped into paper bags. Now all you get are astronomical prices.

When You No Longer Can Eat Some Foods You Love

And people think it's easy getting old. Next it'll be tubes through the nose and in the arms. On a serious note, have your taste buds changed?

Enough with the schmeer. The 80's are over.

You're not a designer chick? I hate that stuff, except on Hostess Cup Cakes.

When it comes to the bagel, I'm OK with the Schmeer! Anything else not!
