Is John's Pizzeria the Best? Other suggestions?

Spumoni Gardens is distinctive because they put the cheese under the sauce. It's a very different style of pizza.
On a beautiful sunny day a nice slice of L&B pizza on the patio finished off with an amazing Spumoni is priceless!

My Aldi experience!

I found a $5 bill in the Holiday Inn parking lot last year. WOW!! It was heads up.

My Aldi experience!

Funny, they do have regular Hershey bars but not the almond ones.
If they had ice cream in one of the wild B&J type flavors I would have tried it.

My Aldi experience!

One more time. It was just a report on my Aldi experience not a review of their chocolate VS Hershey. Something about that Hershey Almond bar is comforting.
I found a quarter in the parking lot at work this morning. An omen for the beginning of a great weekend.

I'm just being playful, lighten up. It's Chowhound!
I also pick up pennies on the sidewalk.

When was the last time you had a REAL hot dog?

Back in the day my buddy had a cart in Brooklyn. His sign said: "Phil's Belly Bombs"

When was the last time you had a REAL hot dog?

I enjoy Kayem brand hot dogs with natural casing. I grill them on the BBQ, cook them in a crock pot with baked beans or in a skillet with minced onions Reykjavik style. Hot dogs are called Pylsurs in Iceland and they prepare them with crispy minced fried onions. Yummy!!
Top them all off with relish and deli mustard and sauerkraut instead of onions.
Total comfort food.
The only time I get hot dogs when I am out is from Nathan's in Coney Island. A dog, fries and a root beer on the boardwalk: Priceless!!

Tips to cut grocery bill

The actual Costco store sells beer. NYS regulations. Every state has their rules.

Cheesecake factory

I've been spoiled by excellent NY cheesecake. Otherwise the place is ok for what it is. Decent food. Lots of it.

It's NYC, so many pizza joints, so little time. Try something new.
Think of NYC pizza as Philly Cheesesteaks. So many great places all different.

Barbounia's Lamb Terracotta

Bustan on the UWS makes a "Lamb Terracotta" that I love.

If John's is a convenient location just go across the street to Keste for an excellent but different style of pizza. Try their truffle buratta too. It's amazing. If you are in the mood for a nice walk head over to Motorino for yet one more amazing pizza.
So many pizza joints, so little time.

Flash Freezing mistake!

What was the purpose of what you did?
I often pre make beef or lamb burgers then slip them into a gallon freezer zip lock bag to freeze them. One bag will hold 4-6 depending upon the size. I don't stack them so I can use one at a time. They defrost quickly without using the microwave.

Tips to cut grocery bill

I have a great suggestion to cut down on food and liquor costs:
Head over to "Happy Hour" where they serve free finger foods and cheap drinks. Get there early to cover lunch and dinner. Fill up on wings, cheese, cocktail franks, chips and dips.

Old Dunkin Donut jingle

Funny, I grew up just across the sewage swamp in Bergen Beach. Probably the same truck.

Ants in kitchen--Four methods have not worked! Help!

Keep ants out with caulk?? I can't even manage to keep field mice out of my fairly new home. Nothing is ever perfectly sealed in a home.

Tips to cut grocery bill

And Costco has "Prime" meats that the local supermarkets do not carry.
Can't forget that Friday lunch buffet.

Tips to cut grocery bill

The hard liquor and wine at the NY Costco is a bargain. They have name brand and odd ball brand but not Kirkland. They carry good quality wine and local North Fork wine.

Tiny Cast Iron Skillets

I have a few in different sizes. I use them for cooking a single fried egg or a frittata. Also use for browning nuts, onions, spices and peppers for topping hummus.
Also used as inspiration to buy a new cell phone after one falls off the hanging rack onto my 3 year old Droid.

"Simplest" Commercially Available Bread Roll or Muffin?

Bialys have little in common with bagels except that they are round and sold in the same places.
A good bagel is boiled, bialy not. Different type of flour too. Bialys don't have holes.
I love both.
99Jason, if you live in the NYC area ask Kossar's to make up a dozen without garlic or onion for you. They freeze well.
