NATIONAL PIE DAY- help me win!

My friend has an annual National Pie day party http://nationaldaycalendar.com/2014/0... Everyone brings a pie, sweet or savory and we all sample and judge. I want to win this year!

The last time I went, I made a "holy Mole" pot pie with chicken mole. I want something creative, fun, and savory (i'm not a huge sweet pie fan

)

Any good ideas? thanks!

Anniversary dinner after a show

Great ideas! We went to Betony for my birthday. I will look into the others. Nomad is also a great idea. Thanks

Anniversary dinner after a show

Looking for a knock your socks off anniversary dinner (but not like $$$$ knock your socks off) after a play on 48th and 6th. We love exotic food, hole in the wall surprises, and memorable experiences- not the ideal area for that, so willing to travel. Looking for something under $100pp for food not including drinks, so nothing too fancy. Cheap and delicious is even better.

GUACAMOLE SHOWDOWN

I'm a no garlic kind of Guac-er. And here's my secret, don't tell a soul. It sounds weird, but I add about a spoonful of Mayo (yes, mayo). It makes it creamy and keeps it from oxidizing and you can't really taste that it's mayo. It gets rants and raves.

Birthday Dinner on Pops

Being a bit of a foodie, my father generously offered to give me a gift certificate to a restaurant for my 30th birthday present. I'm looking for someplace special that is a bit fun and different, obviously with exceptional food, that I probably wouldn't feel justified paying for myself (especially since i'm recently unemployed.)

My guess is the gift certificate would be some where between $100-$150 so somewhere that my boyfriend and I could go to town, without going too far over that (including wine or drinks). So nothing too over the top. Hidden gems would be very much up our alley. We eat just about everything, so not picky about the type of food. Just something special to make use of this opportunity.

Thanks!

Vietnamese Cookbook

I saw a great cookbook in Hoi An that one of the restaurants/ cooking schools puts out. The restaurant had some of the best food we ate in Vietnam and the cookbook is beautiful and really goes into details about the ingredients and techniques and culture. It's called Taste Vietnam- the Morning Glory cookbook

Looking for an inexpensive, special dinner for two in Brooklyn

I would recommend Kaz An Nou in Prospect heights. Small, intimate, often have live music, BYOB, kind of a hole in the wall, but very affordable and great French Caribbean food. Another similar option would be Abistro in Fort Green. West African food which is also cozy, charming and Affordable (and byob)- if you go there, get the Senegalese fried chicken!

2 extra tickets to Little Owl the Venue All you can eat crab boil

I Bought 5 tickets to the all you can eat crab boil at The Little Owl Venue through Blackboard Eats and due to the Hurricane, it was canceled and rescheduled for tomorrow night. 2 of my original party can no longer make it, which leaves me with two extra tickets for 9pm tomorrow night. They are $45 each and here is a link to the information: http://blackboardeats.com/sp/little-o...

Anyone want crab? It looks like a lot of delicious fun and I don't want to be out $90, so it could be win win!

Ballard- Restaurant gift certificate for a wedding present

A couple of my newly wed friends are living in Ballard and for a present I wanted to get them a gift certificate to a nice restaurant for them to have a special date. Trying to keep it to $75, so nothing too fancy/expensive, just something really special that they would enjoy. One of them is a semi veg, but other than that, they eat most things.

CSA pick-up bounty night! what to cook!?

Great ideas! this has been really fun and i've loved reading everyone's unique thoughts and ideas and will definitely use all of them at some point throughout the season. We ended up making homemade pizza. One with scape pesto, goat cheese, squash, caramelized onions, and kale. The other with a tomato sauce, tomatoes, mozzarella, pancetta, and onions.

It was my first time making pizza and i'll have to admit, it came out pretty great!
Thanks for the great ideas!

Any sources for sushi-sashimi-grade salmon near Park Slope?

I looked into this a couple of years ago and got some sushi grade fish at Ocean Fish market on 7th ave in Park Slope. I've heard Park Slope Seafood just down the block has sushi grade as well, but only tried the fish from Ocean. It was very good and affordable.

CSA pick-up bounty night! what to cook!?

Excellent suggestions! thanks so much! We obviously couldn't use it all in one go so i'll give those things a try.

We ended up making a roasted pork tenderloin stuffed with broccoli rabe (a welcome addition to the bounty), mushrooms, scallions, and garlic with a side of cold sesame noodles with scape, turnip, bokchoy, and scallions.

But both the turnip/scallion relish/ lettuce wrap and the egg cups sound like fun recipes to try with the rest! Maybe brunch tomorrow!

CSA pick-up bounty night! what to cook!?

Our first CSA (community sponsored agriculture) pick-up is tonight and we're excited to use our random batch of ingredients to make a creative meal. The fun part of the CSA is that you get a random selections of whatever is fresh and in season which forces you away from the routines of getting the same things at the store

Today's bounty will likely include:
-lime green oakleaf lettuce
-Red Russian kale
- green Swiss chard
-bok choy
- scallions
- garlic scapes
-sweet, white Japanese turnips
- and herb pots (Red Rubin basil and Greek oregano).

Any thoughts on interesting, creative recipes/dishes that utilize a chunk of those ingredients?
we love meat, seafood, fish... well pretty much everything

most interesting places to eat in Brooklyn

I Just ate at Traif last night for the first time and was wildly impressed. Really good small plates, very innovative and interesting menu, not terribly pricey, and a fun, hip, happening atmosphere. Was saying it might be one of my new top five for the borough.

Tuesdays in the 30's

Last week we went to Kun Jip (even though we've read mixed reviews, our friend swears by it.) Although the Bi-Bim-Bop didn't blow us away, everything else was terrific and it was a really fun atmosphere. We ate the spicy tofu stew, dumplings, and a baked egg dish in addition to the good, but not great bulgogi bibimbap.

Looking forward to tonight. Might mix it up a little and do some noshing in eatily.

Last Tuesday we went to Arirang in K-town and had the chicken Kar-jaebe and seafood pancake. It was a great choice for the rainy day and the price was pretty good. Looking forward to trying out another place tomorrow.

Tuesdays in the 30's

My boyfriend and I are taking a class on 30th street and 5th ave. It's every Tuesday for 10 weeks and we've decided to make it sort of a 'date night' and grab dinner after the class. We obviously want to try different places every week, maybe starting in Korea Town. Any suggestions for one or multiple Tuesday in the 30's?
