Summer Lasagna Noodle Uses

I saw a recipe somewhere for grilled lasagna - can't vouch for it, but it's definitely a possibility -

Breadsmith in Brooklyn

Avenue M does have a dearth of bakeries so I'm glad we're getting another one...kidding, I am excited about bring Pas Yisroel artisan breads to Brooklyn (assuming it's kosher and Pas Yisroel)

Upscale Friday night dinner ideas

if you do a rib roast but don't slice it it should keep pretty well - maybe a rack of veal or lamb, again, the key is not to slice it until right before you're going to serve it -

I love the Sony building (the location is central to, well, Central Park and Midtown) and missed Solo (although I definitely enjoy the pizza)! I'll be glad to try out Butterfish

Ideas for place to go for a week with kosher restaurants around, PLEASE!

Monsey has plenty of great kosher restaurants - you can also go upstate, to the Catskills, where (during the summer) there is kosher food aplenty. New Jersey might be an option, too - what about Teaneck or Lakewood? Or Deal/Asbury Park?

Finally got to the "new" Prime Grill (NewYork); was underwhelmed

I've always been happy with Prime. I find the new space to actually be really pretty - I love the big chandeliers and I find the pizzas offered really really good. All that being said, though, I'm relatively easy to please. My food's never been cold and I've always had a good time at Prime. I actually like Prime more than Pardes or Basil (I know - quelle horreur!). I know that Prime's not as cool as Pardes or Basil but I like being able to order what I want and how I want it, and not to have to rely on the whims and whimsies of the chef. I can't speak to the service or food that AdinaA received but I can say that Prime is my go-to easy-breezy place for a good time.

Sous vide meat/milk question

what an interesting shailah (halachic question)! I've been discussing it all night. Temperature low, double bagging it - general consensus is that it would probably be okay if it's double bagged and the temp is low enough (which, in a sous vide machine, it usually is) but you definitely should ask your rabbinic authority.

Onions. Do you "count" them as a vegetable when planning a meal?

onions are more condiment or flavorer than veggie - regardless of what the National Onion Board might say. Onions are a veggie the way that tomato sauce in pizza is a veggie.

Best condiment to throw on a hot dog?

I like onions - either caramelized or crunchy

I make (blank) at home so I can eat my fill...

I roast up trays of Vidalia onions to be able to use them in salads, with eggs for breakfast, or pureed as a dip

What's cooking for Shavuot?

my husband prefers the white sauce version to the classic red sauce version - kids like the red sauce better but they're just as happy with mac and cheese!

Help! Gluten-free dish to make for new neighbors.

arroz con pollo - or any kind of baked chicken with rice or potatoes. Not necessarily freeze-able but it'll definitely make for a good dinner. chicken strips sautéed with peppers and onions, or pepper steak or beef with broc - any Chinese dish (just watch the ingredients) with rice

What's cooking for Shavuot?

Mark bittman has a great white sauce mushroom lasagna - you can also go sweet, with a cheese noodle kugel or fun with a spaghetti pizza pie - choose your own toppings!

What's cooking for Shavuot?

I'm doing a pizza dinner, with mini pies and calzones and pizza rolls and a pizza dough ring. notice a theme? I'm also doing (gasp!) fried chicken for one of the day meals (I know, meat? what is this, Shabbat?).

♪To all the bowls I've loved before♪ -- dishes you've lost along the way?

I had a wonderful oven-to-tableware rectangular casserole dish. It looked great, washed like a dream, and baked up my smashed potatoes and apple cobblers and most anything else. Until one day when I got cocky taking it out of the oven. I overestimated my strength and underestimated how hot the dish was and I dropped it, destroying both the dish and the shepherd's pie inside. #sadday.

Hope this isn't requested to death, but need some ideas for BBQ side dishes for memorial day

you can always make up a big bowl of guac and bring along bags of interesting chips - either flavored with interesting flavors or interesting veggie chips.

Gluten Free Memorial Day Outdoor BBQ

bacon-wrapped dates, or a candied bacon - always a big crowd-pleaser by me. lots of salad options with bibb lettuce and almonds or pine nuts and strawberries or mangoes - or how about a big guacamole?

What fast food do you eat rarely, but that first bite think "Wow, this is so good!"

bloomin' onions. a million calories and grams of fat of pure goodness, from bite one until the very last bit.

puff pastry

there are other puff pastries that are kosher but I don't think that they're any better than Pepperidge Farm -
Mazor's isn't too bad, but again, I don't know that it's radically different from Pepperidge Farm's

Your favorite 5 minute meal?

Cous cous - only takes about five minutes with boiling water (to cook), toss with olive oil and herbs - et voila

Otherwise - scrambled eggs/omelet and toast, toasted whole wheat bagel with tuna salad, or cereal and milk (don't knock it!)

What's the Worst Dish You Ever Made?

I made a sweetbreads dish with red wine once. big mistake. I don't know if I did something wrong, or if that's the way the sweetbreads were supposed to come out - when I closed my eyes, it wasn't so bad, but I couldn't eat it once I looked at it - the sweetbreads were a nasty, unpalatable shade of purple.
