Which is the best vanilla ice cream?

Thinking about alcoholic drinks you might want to try the Turkey Hill All Nat Cherry Vanilla with Amaretto DiSarono.

Traditional Boston eatery? Need multiple recs

Thumbs up for Belle Isle. No frills seafood joint in the best sense of the word. Killer as in 1lb. lobster roll. Baked seafood platter has about 1/2 lb of scallops 1/2 lb. of shrimp and a piece of hake in a cracker & butter coating.
You place your order and they give you a funny lobster shaped beeper to tell you when your food is ready.

They have some outside tables on the water that is good if it is not too windy.

Bring cash and plenty of it. They have an ATM.
The lobster roll is about $25. Compared to trendy Boston elegant place where $25 gets you 5 scallops it is still a bargain. For me it is a must go for lunch, not cheap but definitely a bucket list destination.

I put in my two cents for the TURKEY HILL ALL NATURAL. No gums or fillers. No corn syrup. Only neg is it has a lot of air, which doesn't matter if making a milkshake.

I make (blank) at home so I can eat my fill...

When my local grocery, John's Farms in Plainview, NY has giant lobsters (6-9 lbs) at $5-$6/lb. i sometimes indulge in one of these sea monsters. They steam them for free. Recently a friend of mine had a birthday and I surprised him with a lobster lunch at his office.

Hot with butter or cold with mayo. Yum!

Delhi 6 in Hicksville, a real treat

Went at 5 PM on Wednesday and place was empty.

Had a living social coupon, $40 off 4 people. 3 of us went and had to order 4 dishes, no problem.

They gave us comp papadom salty spiced flat. 3 condiments Pineapple, Cilantro and Tamarind. all really nice.

We like noodles and they are well represented on this mixed Chinese, Thai, Indian menu. We ordered chicken Haka and chicken Pad Thai noodles. We asked for the Pad Thai mild and the Haka kind of spicy. Both very good. Pad Thai a little too sweet for me.

Thai mixed veg in green curry. Now we are talking my idea of exotic spice on a coconut milk base. Basil corriander nice nice.

Chicken in butter sauce. More of a creamy tomatoey rich flavor and texture.

2 bowls of rice, one indian, one chinese.

Really satisfying meal, leftovers of everything for the 4th diner who wasn't there.

They have a lunch buffet every day for $10 , with a discount coupon on their website.

Living social and groupon available.

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.

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.

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.
