Is My Turkey Stock Okay?

I recently used a turkey carcass to make some stock in my slow cooker. I discovered after I put it in the fridge to cool (and to get the fat to congeal) that the whole pot of stock had basically turned to jelly. I'm used a top layer of fat forming, but even the darker stock itself is gelatinous. My boyfriend used some of it and said it liquified right away when heated. Is it really okay to use?

Bar near the Sunshine Theater on East Houston?

Can anyone recommend a good bar near the Landmark Sunshine Theater on East Houston? I'm looking for someplace that's not prohibitively expensive, but not a pub, either.

Thank you!

Dessert--just dessert--in or near Montclair?

Thanks to you both! I love Applegate's, but I do think we'd like to take her somewhere a bit more special and sit-down. Next Door sounds promising...

Dessert--just dessert--in or near Montclair?

Two doting daughters who live near Montclair, NJ would like to take our mom out for her birthday this week, but our budgets are so strapped that we can really only take her out for dessert. My questions are:

-Can you name a great dessert place in or near Montclair, or a restaurant that offers great desserts?
-If our best option is a restaurant, do you think said restaurant would give us a reservation if we're only ordering dessert?

Thanks!

Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes

Dumb question: I know you're generally supposed to bake with room-temperature ingredients, but does this go for the Guinness as well?

Grad dinner in Wilmington or Newark?

Can anyone suggest a nice, moderate-to-expensive place in either Newark, DE or Wilmington, DE for a family to have a graduation dinner? I've looked at some reviews and found Moro, Domaine Hudson (really a wine bar with food), and Restaurant 821. Do they live up to their hype, or could I do better?

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a good restaurant somewhere near the Chadds Ford Winery that serves lunch? Maybe mid-price to expensive?

Thanks for your help!

Does anyone know of a good place to get a special birthday lunch in Lambertville? (I know it's in New Jersey, but I thought since it's so close to New Hope, PA folks might have some input.)

Here are a few of the Chamber of Commerce's recommendations:
Hamilton's Grill Room
