Stew Leonards...an ongoing debate

stew's milk really tastes better?
i always thought that was a myth

was there the other day

got excellent prices at the deli but of course steer clear of anything that isnt on sale you will pay above and beyond

A few ripe tomatoes-sauce recipe request

i dont feel the need to peel them unless there is a reason

you are right about onion! saute that first for a bit then add garlic

i dont have a stick blender was thinking of keeping it as is-chopping up the tomatoes in a medium dice

thanks!

A few ripe tomatoes-sauce recipe request

I have about 3 huge ripe tomatoes and more smaller ones but I wanted to use some of larger ones to make a pasta sauce

any recipe ideas are appreciated

my idea is to chop them, heat a pan with evoo and garlic till the garlic gives off a scent, then throw the chopped tomatoes in and add some fresh basil and cook for about 5 min then top the pasta with the tomatoes and add pecorino romano...

but i am not sure if this is the best method for fresh tomatoes so i am asking because i have never tried this before

Next food network star... and the winner is.... (spoilers, obviously)

I thought arty (spelling intentional)was self absorbed and clueless (i agree with the poster who said her on camera persona was totally different than her off camera one-flower in her hair every take but off camera no flower and closed off...um kay arty)-tom was too much of an oaf-i liked herb but not that much

i dont know why i watched this! for entertainment i suppose :)

Good Eats/Alton Marathon on foodtv today 7/29

i taped the special and the new show havent watched yet-but i agree any restaurant road show with alton has to be better than RR or Flay (does he have a personality?) hate to snark but heck i had to...

re: stern's for some reason they seem snobby to me-am i wrong?
