Advice for my Mum on printing her own recipe book

Heck, I can barely remember what I had for dinner last night and this was awhile ago:)

The one I did was a combo of recipes, food and family pics.... so it wasn't just a cook book.

Advice for my Mum on printing her own recipe book

We did a recipe book for my MIL's 80th birthday and used Shutterfly. One thing I did do, was include photos of her recipes that were written in her own hand- the legible ones obviously.

Four year old reviews... The French Laundry

If I had waited 2 months anticipating a meal at TFL and was seated next to this group- the manager would have been called.

My last dinner there was $1200, the most we've ever spent on one meal- and it wasn't to witness a photo shoot.

Can't say never, because there are work situations where I have no choice.

I let my group pick the spot for BD lunches, and if they want Olive Garden, Black Angus or some other place I wouldn't normally go to, it's just one meal.

What to do when the RESTAURANT cancels your reservations?

I can't imagine that they wouldn't be able to take care of you after having to cancel.

If I strike out on Open Table, I call directly, use Amex concierge or the hotel. I've never not been able to get in anyplace in 30 years.

I'm just speaking about LV.

Next Food Network Star -finale (spoilers)

In my area, the basic+ includes FN and HGTV- which was why I asked.

Next Food Network Star -finale (spoilers)

I agree in principle, but how do you do that? Cancel cable when the channels are included in the package (at least with my provider).

Or just not watch, but still pay?

Leave Guy Fieri alone: Why he has nothing to do with the Food Network’s decline

To me, this business model doesn't seem all that wise in the long term. If I was president of FN, I'd be worried about the fact that they rely so much on Guy. God forbid something happens to him.

And to be chasing the few thousand "rich" women that don't have/use DVRs for your revenue?

As for Justin, I was as disappointed with him not getting a series as when I found out House Hunters was so manipulated.

missing Kate Mantilini.....

Just spoke with my friend and he said while most of his regulars haven't found a replacement, many are going to Craig's and Café D'Etoile. Haven't been to either, so just passing along the info.

Don't want to provide the links here, because they aren't just about food, but check out Alison Martino (Al Martino's daughter) on FB. She also writes for LA Mag, has a blog and is a big fan of all old-school dining spots like the Hamlet.

She was at Kate's the last 3 nights before closing and has some great pictures.

Good luck.

Forest Lawn...j/k. So many migrated when Hamlet Sunset closed (not that there weren't lots of people that went to both), I'm curious as well.

Need to talk to my friend Jim who worked 35 years for the family.

NY Times Review of Giada's Las Vegas restaurant. Ouch

There is a youtube video (can't post from my phone) where she delivers commencement speech in 2009 to the Anthropology graduates, which is what her degree was in.

NY Times/Pete Wells Weighs in on Off-Strip Las Vegas

Maybe he wasn't comped at Giada, but 3 hounds (2 that liked the place) wrote much more detailed reviews here.

Not quite sure why you continually take every op to bash.

Well, hopefully one day he can open his own named resto and cook how he pleases.

No, extra Giada nasty here. Accomplished, from a wealthy family but could have been a Kim K or Paris and did squat with herself other than sex tapes or a fake family job.

Bitter... party of how many?

Do you know her past schedule at the Ritz Carlton, Spago or her catering company? If so, let me know.

That's why I mentioned hound's reviews. Wouldn't have mattered whether this poorly written review said the place was good,mediocre or bad.

Guessing comments would still be pretty much the same- just without the added glee.

There was one in LA as well, which was very good- it was just way ahead of its time.

There are 3 reviews so far on the Vegas board. 2 were good, one was so-so.

Much more-detailed than this review.
