Do you have a go-to vegan cookbook for "everyday" cooking?

Yes, these are very good blogs - and Veganomican is one of the cookbooks written by the post punk kitchen girls. Very fun and useful book.

How much fennel pollen is too much? Saveur's roasted chicken recipe

Thanks guys. The recipe calls for tablespoons, not teaspoons. I had a feeling 3T was way too much. I'll trust my instincts and wing it with much less.

How much fennel pollen is too much? Saveur's roasted chicken recipe

After almost a year out of commission, my oven is finally working (fingers crossed) - I'd like to roast a chicken using the fennel pollen I bought JUST before my oven died last year. Most of the things I have read have cautioned to use it sparingly - however, the Saveur recipe I am looking for calls for 3T mixed with evoo to be used as a rub under and on the skin. Does that sound like way too much? Please advise!!

Adding flavor to turkey gravy

Yes, I agree with this. WHen I have done gravy in advance it was lacking something until I dumped it into the roasting pan and incorporated the drippings - huge difference!

Real Sichuan food in Bay Ridge

I was there last weekend - chengdu dumplings - delicious, juicy interior, firm wrappers, delicious sauce. Chicken with spicy capsicum - at first glance we thought they had dumbed down the sichuan peppercorns but we were mistaken - perfect level of tongue tingle. Dan dan noodles were quite nice as was the cucumber with fresh garlic. All in all a delicious meal. This place has certainly NOT gone down hill.

What are your favorite sources for vegan recipes?

Anything having to do with Isa Chandra Moskowitz - theppk.com blog, or her books, I have Veganomicon which I love and just got Vegan Brunch. Her recipes are well tested and tasty, and her humor makes it all fun. She is very creative.

Sriracha on Pizza: Brilliant or Abominable?

I've been putting sriracha on pizza for over 20 years. It's really good. Who cares where it was made? Other hot sauces are good too, but I think sriracha is best for this because of the garlic content.

Tasty Vegan Or Vegan Friendly Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY

V-Spot - vegan, some things are really good and some not so good - their wraps are good (I love the jerk "chicken" wrap), salads, I've heard the burger is really good - but I have not liked some of their main dishes so much. S'Nice- good place for veg or vegan wraps and salads. Everything I have had there has been very tasty and fresh. These are both casual places.

I need to order a half sheet cake in Manhattan - need suggestions!

We used to use Jason's Patisserie years ago but they are SO expensive. Does anyone have a good source for sheet cakes for delivery? This is for a wedding shower for someone at the office and she deserves something good. Please advise. TIA!!

Reheating a cream-based pasta dish/sauce

I was once told by a waiter that the best way to heat up these kinds of dishes is by adding a little milk, in a pan on the stove, gentle heat. It always worked for me.

Suggestions sought for vegan in Niagara Falls (Ontario)

Thanks Peaches to Poutine, at the very least this confirms that one of my choices is pretty safe vegan-wise. St Catherine - I'm getting the idea that this area is more vegan friendly, perhaps we should really buckle down and rent that car so it's more easily accessible.

And your blog - what truly gorgeous cupcakes and intriguing flavors - wasabi peanut? Yes please.

Suggestions sought for vegan in Niagara Falls (Ontario)

Going to Niagara Falls (Ontario side) in June to celebrate my 10th anniversary with my vegan husband. Normally I would get a hotel room with a small fridge so we could keep various staples (cereal and soy milk for instance) in the room. Niagara is looking very bad for vegans from my research. I'm looking for restaurant recommendations, but also suggestions - what can I keep in the room that does not need refrigeration, I'm thinking peanut butter, crackers, fruit....any brilliant ideas? We may rent a car for a day or two, but for the most part, we are on foot. I appreciate any advise you can give me!

Where to find dried sour cherres.

They certainly used to have them, and they were very good. Trader Joe's are pretty good too.

I agree as well - Breadcrumbs said it very well - I often look for particular names when certain subjects are being discussed - it matters.

Sterno rack food warming advice needed

Thanks Joe - I've decided to bring in a two burner hot plate to heat the pans first and then keep warm on sterno - it will be a pain, but I think it will work without putting everyone at risk. Crockpot - good idea too, if anyone has one and wants to carry it on the subway, I'll encourage that.
