Smoked Turkey Legs

I bought a bunch of collard greens at the greenmarket this weekend and I wanted to try Alton Brown's Pot O'Greens ( recipe.

Where can I buy smoked turkey legs?

I have already tried Whole Foods Columbus Circle last night, but they said they do not have smoked items. I do not know if this means that location, or all of Whole Foods.

I'm willing to go to Fairway between 74th & 75th but along the D line from 59th street to the Brooklyn Atlantic stop works, too.

Loose leaf chamomile tea

I really like Sensuous Bean which is at 66 W. 70th (close to the corner of Columbus and 70th). It's a small store, but the people are friendly and knowledgable. The place smells great because of their coffee beans, too.

How do I stay logged on after closing my browser?

When you log in, there should be a box that has the option to "Remember Me." Just check that box and log in and you should be good to go.

Whole Foods at Columbus Circle has it.

The savory scones they serve with soup are really good too if you want to try one of those as well as the sweet ones.

Great Food, Bad Service

I agree with this. When I go eat chinese food, I want good, cheap and fresh. When "good" service is factored in like Shun Lee (in NYC), I find the price not worth it.

Searching for Birthday Cake/Cupcakes...

The cakes at Cafe Lalo located in the UWS are great. I've gotten a few red velvet cakes that were delicious and very well received. And they often have same day service though it depends what cake you would like.

Cafe Lalo
201 West 83rd Street (b/t Amsterdam and Broadway)
Cakes are on page 8
