White Bean and Edamame Hummus

Agree with Ghazi, while it sounds delicious, this is a dip, not hummus! It's not hummus if there aren't any chickpeas ;)

Also, hummus doesn't have to be boring. There are many things you can do to change the taste (Like include spinach or fresh basil) to change it up.

Xinjang Cumin Lamb Restaurants

Hi everyone!

Hoping you can help me out. I was browsing the threads on this board for Xinjang style cumin lamb restaurants, but many of the posts are from a few years back.

Am wondering if you know of any good ones, specifically in the Mississauga area? However, anywhere will do, really!

I lived in Korea for a few years and became hooked on this style of lamb! I've been to the "Chinese Halal Restaurant" in Scarborough (668 Silver Star Blvd), which was very delicious! Just wondering if there are any closer to me.

Thanks for your help!

Cupcake Crazy (flour girls, swirls, bake sale)

I always take my little cousins to Swirls whenever they visit! The owner is very nice, it's well priced, and the cupcakes are delicious!

Affordable Restaurant/Lounge Ideas for a Reception?

Good idea, thanks! I think I'll ask my mother-in-law to be about restaurant ideas...she's a bit of a social butterfly, so maybe she'll have a better chance with restaurants she may know of. Thanks for the info & reply!

Affordable Restaurant/Lounge Ideas for a Reception?

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and have been browsing through old recommendations of where to have a wedding reception. There were some great ideas, but I didn't find the answer I was looking for and just have a question that I'm hoping you may be able to answer!

I plan to have a small wedding reception next May 7th, 2010. I hope to keep it at 80 guests (if not less) but am having a hard time finding restaurants/lounges. I am wondering if it's at all possible to rent out a place, and let the guests buy their own beverages and meals if they wanted. All I was really looking to serve were some sweets and perhaps some finger-foods, with the focus being on dancing and having an overall good time!

Are there any venues you can think of where such a dream would be possible? I'm even open to rooms I could maybe rent out, where I could bring in my own food and drinks.

Thanks in advance!!!

G.
