Oreo Dessert

A friend gave me this recipe and says it's SOOOO good and looks pretty too. I haven't tried to make it though, too many processed ingredients. I think Pemma is talking about the same thing.

How about Great Bakeries in Falls Church/Tysons/Vienna?

Correction, it's called Silva's Patisserie. My bad.

How about Great Bakeries in Falls Church/Tysons/Vienna?

So, I know this is a year later - but a bakery opened up in Vienna about a year ago called Sylva's Patisserie. We tried some of their mini desserts (Dulce de Leche was soooo good) and we ended up ordering a half sheet Tiramisu cake. We placed the order with Harry who was super friendly and ensured us it would be worth our money. Needless to say, the cake was gone in about 15 minutes! Even the scraps were scooped into a plate and enjoyed by someone who wanted seconds! I think this place may be better than Stella's and Classic Bakery in Maryland!!! Their cakes are so light, airy and moist.... Mmmm... can't wait to go back. Big props to Slyva's Patisserie!!!

Best thin crust pizza in the DC area

If you like New York./Jersey style pizza - you have to try Tony's NY Pizza in Fairfax - in the Fair Lakes Shopping Center. My hubby is from Queens and craves this pizza every WEEK!

New Coffeemate Creamer?

Has anyone noticed a difference in the new coffeemate creamers? I started noticing a difference in December - more watery, less creamy, less flavor overall.... I usually buy Hazelnut or French Vanilla. I've tried International Delights flavors too, and those seem watery and unbearable to drink as well. I guess I'll be going back to frothed skim milk.

HELP - LOOKING FOR RESTAURANT

Wines aged in steel?

Wow, I have the same problem! My nose gets stuffy so quick, then I lose my sense of smell and then sneeze uncontrollably -- mostly with red wines. Are there any good steel-aged red wine recommendations? ... Thanks.

Really Good Graham Crackers?

The TJ's grahams are sugary and cinnamony and oh so yummy. But Beware, I tried making a s'more in the microwave with a TJ's graham, piece of choco and marshmallow and burned my tounge since the sugar on the graham crystalized. -- So these bad boys are better to eat plain :)

Super H in Fairfax

The Super H and el Grande (both owned by Super H) in Merrifield have also gone down in quality over the last year or so. Their fruit seems old, lemons/lime barely have any juice, and vegetables tend to go bad... fast! I've started driving out to Wegmans in Fairfax again just because I think they have the most fresh fruit (crunch apples... mmm) and its reasonably priced.

Best Dark Chocolate?

Minimum 65% cocoa, and that is easily accessible and not too expensive. A good one is Trader Joes 3-pk Belgian Dark Chocolate (~$2.00 for 3 bars). I also like Dove Dark Chocolate squares.... I haven't really tried the fancy stuff yet.

What's your favorite vegetarian sandwich?

A great grilled cheese with grated white cheddar & sharp cheddar on thick white bread and salty butter. On a rainy, cold day add a side of cream of tomato soup ..... heavenly.

Recs for trendy, fun dinner in DC?

We actually ended up at Rosa Mexicano at 9pm and there was a two hour wait! We ate at the bar, and the guac bowl was excellent... but our entrees were bleeeehhhhhh.... :(

Recs for trendy, fun dinner in DC?

Seems as though all the trendy restaurants are booked for Saturday, unless we want a 10:30 dinner reservation :( So... I think we're either going to keep trying to get reservations for Zaytinya, Zengo, Proof or something in Arlington (we would go to Oya, but just went there 2 weeks ago) .... Thanks guys!

Recs for trendy, fun dinner in DC?

no reservations available tomorrow night. maybe I will call again tonight or tomorrow morning.

Recs for trendy, fun dinner in DC?

Hi. I know this is a repetitive post, but we have family coming into town for one day, this Saturday from Philly and they want to go out to a trendy, fun atmosphere, people-watching, good-place-for drinks kind of place. Food isn't the main focus atmosphere and location is (although I want yummy food!).

Most don't eat seafood - so all seafood-heavy restaurants are out. Also, we need to find a place that can accomodate 3 couples for tomorrow night. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks Chowhound friends!

Question - How many times can you freeze and thaw ground meat?

I have some frozen turkey breast, and I've frozen it, thawed it, frozen and thawed it again yesterday. Do you think it's still good? How many times can I freeze-thaw-freeze-thaw-freeze? Help!?!
