Visting Staunton, VA Recommendations???

l'italia is by far the best in the valley. though it recently underwent a name change and is now "Emilio's Italian Restaurant," after the owner. Still the same menu, food, management etc. Yummy food and beautiful restaurant!!

Harrisonburg Recommends...

Yes it was yummy! Although the amount of food colouring that i used was a bit offputting.
The boy said the taco truck is called "Tacos El Primo" and is the only one worth going to, there are two- one by Reservoir St off Holly Ct. He gets the torta.

Harrisonburg Recommends...

Yes Harrisonburg!! This board popped up on my minifeed and made me so excited. I don't live there anymore, but still visit as the bf's family lives there.

In response: The guacamole at Dona Rosa's (or avocado salad i think it is called) is so delicious. Dona Rosa is amazing!!! Also, the bf who grew up in Harrisonburg highly recommends the taco truck, even for veggies. I will find out which ones particularly and what it is he always orders, he raves about it.

Other all time favourites are Little Grill, especially for downhome night on Fridays. I would always get the vegetarian ribs, mash potatoes with mushroom gravy, collared greens and cornbread. With either the carrot cake or the massive cookie for desert... delicious.

Other topics to be discussed: Indian Food. Bombay courtyard used to be my favourite, the small portions were the perfect size and such a great price. American Indian is OK but as a Brit, it never managed to satisfy. Last time I was in town we went to the new Indian restaurant off University Blvd- i think it was called Taste of India (hmm sounds familiar, re: Taste of Thai..) and it was pretty good! I got the Saag Paneer and was quite happy with it. Prices were good, not sure about the service as we got food to go.

Lastly, the best doughnuts I have ever had in my entire life were at the Farmer's Market held on Saturdays. A Mennonite stall where they had made the doughnuts that morning.

Best spice shop or stall in London?

Hello! I'm looking for a good spice shop or stall at a market that offers some great spices at reasonable prices. Any suggestions?

Squash Blossoms

Ah, I see. Thanks everyone for the advice. I actually haven't got any-- it's my parents who are growing them, but as I won't be due for a visit until September, I was hoping there would be a way to save them so I could cook them then! Oh well, will just settle for the farmer's market instead :)

Squash Blossoms

Can they be frozen?? Or is this a very, very bad idea.
