Mario's Pizza on Chicago Ave MPLS

That building has sadly been turned into a dance studio. Mario's was truly a neighborhood gem and my husband has been in Brad's South of the Border withdrawal for years!!

Pesto ideas -- non-pasta/low carb

I, too am watching carbs and the pesto cauliflower suggestion caught my eye. That sounds awesome!! I make a faux mac and cheese with cauliflower and adding pesto to the mix would be delicious, I think! Thanks for the suggestion.

help save my recipes!

Initially it was every recipe I tried to save , but now all of a sudden, the save button is working again. I downloaded a Java update this afternoon and maybe that's what fixed the problem. At any rate, it's working...thanks for getting back to me.

help save my recipes!

When I click on "save recipe", nothing happens. It doesn't confirm that the recipe was saved and looking at my recipe list, it's not there. What the heck? Can you help?

Best outdoor patios in Twin Cities

Crema on Lyndale in Minneapolis has an awesome patio...very secluded and has a real Mediterranean feel. The ice cream is fantastic. I've never eaten anything but when I'm there but I understand they have "real" food as well.

Okay...found it...why are there so many more steps to get to those recipes? Seems when I first joined Chow.com, all you had to do was click on "favorites" and there were the saved recipes. Thanks for your help!

Nothing shows up when I tap "following", then "saved topics". I must have at least 100 recipes saved.

Oops...my mistake. It does bring me to My Activity/following/lists/settings. Where do I go from there though.

Am trying to get to my favorites. When I click on "view profile" nothing happens. I used to be able to get to my favorites without any problem. What's up?

Restaurants that do brunch near Ridgewood, NJ

My sister (who lives in San Diego) found a restaurant called Bottagra. Anyone heard anything bad about this one? She made reservations already.

Thanks doxy216. I'm from Minneapolis, so didn't realize that Ridgewood is not a destination for decent food. Mom actually lives in Hawthorne, I just didn't think there was anything in that town worth checking out. Will check out Restaurant X.

Restaurants that do brunch near Ridgewood, NJ

Thanks, everyone! Am thinking more creative, trendy American, or Italian. Those seem to fit the bill for my 89 year old mom.

Hi Chowhounds,
Can anyone recommend a fine dining establishment in the Ridgewood, NJ area that is handicap accessible? Looking for a place to do brunch on Mother's Day. Mom doesn't like sushi though. :( Thanks for your help!

Try la chaya on Nicollet Ave. and 46th St. in Mpls. The food is really good and interesting and their patio is delightful, but a bit on the small side. http://www.lachaya.com/

MSP - Who's got the best mac and cheese?

Chatterbox has a delicious version of mac & cheese! I usually do the artichoke/spinach dip addiiton...but you can add ham, peppers, etc. to your dish. ..there are many additions. Very cheesy!! Yum!

Help for dinner!

Hey guys. We're having my brother-in-law and wife for dinner in a couple of weeks. Can anyone suggest a meal that could be assembled ahead of time and put in the oven so I can enjoy visiting with them and not being tied to the kitchen. A couple of caveats though...no lasagna or pasta casseroles. Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance!

The Basics: How to Make French Toast

Definitely use day old bread (baguette) and soak in egg-milk mixture over night. Then pan fry till really crispy on the outside. That way the interior of the bread is all custardy and yummy. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and top with real maple syrup. The best!

The Basics: How to Make Breaded Peppercorn Pork Medallions

I LOVE this! The fact that there is NO measuring...you can eyeball it, throw a handful in, etc. This is the way cooking should be! This is also why I HATE to bake. :>D

Winter Cravings - Brrrrr!

Well, here in below zero Minneapolis, we do love a steaming bowl of lentil soup with spinach (or chard) to ward off frostbite. :-D
