Breakfast Turkey Burgers

No thanks. I will eat the real thing. Limit calories with "pushaways" not poor replacements.

Do you remember Hagen Dazs ice cream when they first started making it??

I grew up in Brooklyn in the 50s. Never saw hagen daze. Our icecream of choice was loose-pack from the corner candy store. No clue as to brand.

OK for burgers etc but don’t order fish of any kind. The grilled tuna I ordered was obviously defrosted in a microwave and dropped on a grill which was barely hot enough to leave faint grill marks much less sear the fish properly. It came as a pile of pink mush with the taste of old fish. My wife’s Scampi was totally lacking in flavor. Since they don’t brew anything there I don’t understand how they call themselves a brewhouse.

Just watch your credit card and check your statement if you go there.

The NJ State Fair - is sponsoring a contest for the best fruit pie in NJ. The contest is open to NJ professional bakers and is being held on August 3rd 2009. I hope samples are available after the judging.

Boblink's quality is uneven. I suspect that the best of their product goes to the restaurants, we get what is left.

Latour is hard to top. Chateau Hathorn is very uneven, it can be exceptional but if you are unlucky enough to go when the owner is not there bring a tent to rest in while waiting for service and sub-par food.

Sassafras trees grow over most of North America. Young trees are shallow rooted and easily pulled. Just peel the bark from the roots and steep the peelings in boiling water.
