A surprisingly disappointing Haagen Dazs Product!!

Last time I looked a teaspoon was 5 grams. I did like the flavor of the cherry and almond together. Maybe if they came out with a cherry almond 5 ingredient line.

Migraines: Coffee vs. Coke?

There are multiple compounds created in the caramel color alone in Coca Cola. Caffeine is but one compound that it shares with coffee. Coke also has lots of phosphoric acid. You may have sensitivities to any or all things in these drinks that may provoke headaches.

Not to give medical advice but when I was in full time practice as a Chiropractor, I found that adjusting the occiput (bone at the base of the skull that meets the first vertabra),would relieve 4 out of 5 headaches before the patient got up off the table.

Looking for Indian lunch buffet (Hicksville area, more or less)

I give Kiran my rec. Good, flavorful and if they have the carrot dessert (Halwa) you are in for a real treat.

We were kicked out of a restaurant because.....

I used to go so far as to leave a box of herb tea at a Chinese restaurant I frequented. I still bring herb tea to Chinese or other restaurants and have them bring hot water.

Recommednation for Hot Chocolate Drink Mix

Chop up some Trader Joes bittersweet Belgian chocolate and mix it in hot Half and half. It don't get better than that unless you stir with a candy cane. Make it as rich as you like and still not too sweet.

Pearl Barley - favorite recipes?

Cholent. Pearl barley, potato, lima beans, beef if wanted. Slow cooked for many hours. Winter delight. Eat it after you have taken care of everything because after you will want a nap. Perfect for warming the kitchen and wonderful aroma when you are snowed and frozen in.

Many recipes online.

Falling off the bone tender...

Is my Kirkland olive oil real?

Not sure where this comes from but it is one of the disorganized drawers in my crowded brain.

Put the oil in a glass container in the refrigerator. The more it congeals the better the quantity of extra virgin it is.

I do not know if you can "unblend" by pouring off the liquid fraction.

Snow's coming. What you gonna cook?

If it goes to sub teen or 20's temps then the garage is a giant freezer. Hot soups will not warm your other frozen foods that way.

Peter Luger Dinner Upcoming-What, If Any, should I Avoid?

Depending on the number at the table get a rib steak to compare. Love the bacon and it goes very well with tomato and onion and thats the only real use for the steak sauce. Get the strudel.

And if you like a real bartenders skilled drink, order a Manhattan. It just tastes better here.

Ratners Dairy Restaurant

I remember a branch on second avenue next door to the Fillmore East. One night the show was AN EVENING WITH THE GRATEFUL DEAD. During a break I was talking to Marmaduke ( lead singer for THE NEW RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE) while he was looking in the Ratners window.

In those days there were 2 shows, Like 8:00 and 11:00. The Dead would play an acoustic set, then the "Riders" and then the Dead electric. They would empty the house and let in a new crowd and repeat the entertainment except the Dead electric set would go until 6:00 AM. Jerry Garcia being in both bands virtually never left the stage. Typically for 5 or 6 nights in a row. Forgive my ramble, but Ratners was next door.

Is there Potato Nik ANYWHERE in Manhatten?

My mom used to bake it in the oven. I liked it thick kugel like, my sister liked it thinner with more crust.

When I became a vegan and bought a Champion Juicer, me and mom would make potato nik together. I would "juice" the potatoes and onions and then add the juice and settled potato starch into the mix with the pulp, flour, salt, pepper and oil.

You can get a Reuben and bagel with cream cheese at Katz's so I doubt the glatt let alone the kosher.

Inexpensive (cheap) Chef's knife

Ditto. A good stamped steel is fine.

Prime rib experts, please help with low and slow cooking method!

You would do really well to invest in a probe thermometer with a remote receiver. Setting oven temp is a choice to make depending on how much time you are willing to spend. 225 to 250 will give you that even pink color all through. Let the roast sit out of the fridge for at least an hour before roasting, If you insert the probe in the meat and slowly roast to 125, before resting, and then blast it for a few minutes at 450 it will be fine.

I like to salt my rib roast at least 2 days up to 3 days before cooking. If you leave it uncovered in the refrigerator for those couple of days it will dry a little.

If you want gravy you can put some onions and carrots in the roasting pan with some water, as long as the meat is elevated above the liquids. Good luck and please report back

My nephew mentioned that it was originally the corn exchange. That may be why it has that fancy bank type architecture/mural ceiling and the clocks around the world.

Han Dynasty Old City, New Digs Upscale!

I ask for and get low salt Mapo Tofu. You can ask for low /no salt in the cooking.The fish with pickled veg soup must have salt because that is what pickles veg, but not salty. If oil is your concern, that is kind of the backbone of the cuisine. Cold cucumbers not so salty, not oily.
