Orange Marmalade Truffles

Not to sound like a lush, but is there any way to get more Grand Marnier in these?

Any place to buy lechon/pernil by the pound?

I just moved from Orlando, and I haven't been able to find a reliable lechoneria (Puerto-Rican style, preferrably) to just go and buy some pork. Anyone know of any near Dunwoody? I'm willing to drive, say a 10-minute trip.

The DeKalb Farmers' Market is a humongous, freezing warehouse full of wonderful foods and fresh produce. My favorite part, however, is the meat section, where you can get all sorts of delicious parts from many animals - chicken, turkey, cow, goat, pig, etc. I remember seeing beef stock bones there, and since they do their butchering on-site, you might be able to get plenty of bones for a cheap price.

Malt Is In

Some Hispanic cultures like malted barley in the form of malta, a rich, dark, sweet non-alcoholic drink. My father always describes it as "the step before beer." While I love it, and many drink it daily, it can be more difficult to enjoy than malt itself. That said, I hope this trend leads to a deeper appreciation for malta and its complexities.

Boxty (Irish Potato Pancake)

How well do these keep? Because I probably would not be able to make these the morning after St. Patrick's Day ...
