breakfast in brooklyn

Cafe K has 2 locations, Spoons on 13th, Greens and Things (I think that's the name) has 4 locations. Which part of Brooklyn would you want? Plus, all the bagel shops that serve omelets, pancakes, fish, etc....

Achla hummus--gone forever? Good alternatives?

Last week Brachs in Lawrence was stocked. The case was full of Achla products, but I didn't stop to see which ones were there.

Soda in cans for Passover 2015

I picked up Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Dr. Brown cans at Brachs. But Seasons delivers, so I would call the location closest to you and make an order for delivery.

Kosher Recipes

Koshereye.com has a great compilation of recipes from many popular famous chefs and cooks. Kosher tested fan page on FB has been another good source. And I've only heard amazing reports from Roosevelt Yeshiva cookbook, out last year, I forget the name.

Gefilte Fish Panic

I get fresh ground whitefish and pike from Ossies in Gourmet Glatt, Cedarhurst. I've never asked if it came already frozen, but they grind it up fresh and I use that to make my gefilte fish with every week.

Mirabelle Bakery on Coney Island Ave.

Goat? I didn't think that was a kosher animal. Are you sure you ate that sandwich here?

Tj recommendation and random observation/ question

I once asked Howie at Gourmet Glatt Cedarhurst to get the cooked and the spread. He told me that the importer for the US had to get them from Israel after they made the special kosher run, which they do 2 times a year. Since last Pesach, I haven't seen the cookies anywhere, so not sure what happened. I also wish they imported the spread.

Boneless Ribeyes and New York Strips

I order my meat from a butcher in Boro Park and he will do whatever I want, for example, extra thick. His meat is only Prime and he delivers here to the 5Towns. My husband won't let me get meat anywhere else, he says his may just tastes bests. The butcher is underneath Meisners catering on New Utrecht. If you want, I would be happy to post his number.

Kosher Timepiece Cafe?

Actually there is a place like that in the city called Uncommon, I believe. They have a circle with a U inside of it as their sign. My kids all thought it meant they were under the O-U, lol. Boy sure where it is exactly, I believe near the financial area possibly. My daughter just sent a friends son on a date there. Cappuccino, my husband and I dated at the Time piece and also were talking how they should have a place like that in the island like that again. I hear it wasn't a huge money maker when people sat there for hours with drinks, bio did and just played board games, but it definitely was fun times.

favorite specifically kosher cookbooks?

Love love love Fresh and Easy and the Baus Yaakov Cookbook, but if you want some solid recipes check out some of the Chadidish cookbooks. Not all winners but a good selection of heimish (read: not fancy) recipes from soups to desserts. As a side note, my favorite cookbooks tend to be from shuls or schools. The Chofetz Chaim,Taam Tov is hands down the best cookbook, imho.

nut free jelly donuts

I heard if you ask Shloimys at Seasons Lawrence they can do special runs without nuts guaranteed on any of their baked goods.

Skirt steak

Out of curiosity, why would ice water remove the salt more effectively than regular water changed often ?? Is there some science behind that ? Just curious.

Skirt steak

I always soak my skirt steak for at least a few hours, changing the water a few times. Otherwise it is way too salty to eat. Definitely give it a try. Good luck.

Is there Kosher pure sucralose powder or Liquid ???

I have been all over the internet looking for kosher certified pure sucralose, either liquid or powder. The sites i found are all in China and I'm assuming are not interested in selling me 16 ounces :) My husband was recently diagnosed as Type 2 and regular Splenda has fillers which are carbs. We don't like Stevia, aspartame, or xylitol, so no go on those. Any help would be really appreciated. TIA

No they are in Boro Park, on New Utrecht. I live in the 5 towns and they deliver to me. Call him, he might deliver to you. He's really really accommodating.

Anyone familiar with the Chefman Electric Hot Water Pot?

So that is a good point actually. The auto press button, which can't be used on shabbos, is great. The manual press is just ok. When the pot is full to about 3/4 empty it's ok to bothersome. The difference being good much water is left in the pot, the less water, the more of a pain to pump it out. That said, it's not so much of a pain that I got a new one. Just comparedto the eease of the electric button, it's a pain. All in all, it's totally worth the $35, that's what I think I paid a year ago when I bought mine. If I had to rate it, during the week, 5 stars, shabbos 4. The size is a bit small for my needs, like I mentioned previously, but that's my issue :-). IMHO, still a great deal.

Anyone familiar with the Chefman Electric Hot Water Pot?

I'd say we've had it for about 6 months, or so, and it's left on 24/7. I do descale it about every 2 weeks, and use filtered water. My only gripe is that if my husband and I each have 16 oz cups of tea or coffee, we can only get about 6 cups pumped out. Yes, we could use smaller cups, but we enjoy the 16 oz cups....

Anyone familiar with the Chefman Electric Hot Water Pot?

We have one and it's fine. Water is hot, even with child milk added. Actually, I find the temperature to be hotter than my older model Keurig. The past I really love about it, though it's when you add cold water to boil there are no steam clouds coming out the back. This always caused me to be concerned about a possible stream burn, our ruining my cabinets. Overall, imho, a great buy.

Reviews of Double frying pan kugel pot

I've seen it at The Buzz. I personally didn't think it justified the cost, as all you need to do is flip it onto a plate and then slide it back in to cook on the other side.
