Pink salmon...

Hi! I am back from a trip to Alaska (we had booked fishing in Ketchikan) and the timing was such that the coho's weren't running yet and I have now a large shipment of pink salmon headed my way. I know it isn't the same caliber as sockeye or coho but am wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to prepare it. Do I treat it like other salmon varieties? Any great marinades or recipes? I do have a Weber smoker and I do plan to brine and smoke some, but any other preps?
Thanks!

How to do bread for sliders or mini-sandwiches for Christmas Eve buffet?

We use Gordon Food Service dinner rolls for our sliders. They are the perfect size and tasty too. In fact, that is what I am making for dinner tonight!

New Soup Hag needs soup ideas for 200 kids - Help, Hounds!

I would recommend a carrot curry soup (just call it carrot soup-or Halloween soup). It is a recipe from Martha Stewart everyday food and is v. simple to prepare and takes a minimal amount of time to cook (until the carrots are tender). My 5 year olds love it. Good luck. Sounds like a chowhounds dream!!

Dinner tomorrow night- Trader Joe's pasta

I've used the lemon parpadelle with 2 cans of tuna packed in oil (get at TJ's), capers (a good amount), a squeeze of lemon, and a bit of parmesean and sea salt. Great for a quick dinner. This is also great with fusilli, just add more lemon and pepper to taste. Enjoy

Any favorites? We are looking for a place that has a great beer selection and some yummy munchies. I know there's a new place called the 5th quarter. Anyone go or hear anything about it? Thanks for any help!!

Gramercy Tavern Gingerbread Cake--Stuck!

As someone said, you have so many great responses already but I'll add one more. I use a product called Cake Release by Wilton. It is the flour and butter in one step. I use it strictly for bundts. I put it in the pan and use a silicone pastry brush to get it in all the nooks and crannies. It works even on those intricate pans and its really easy to use. I got mine at our local supermarket in the baking supply section. Good luck.

Uses for dried Cherries (not just baked goods)

They are great in a Family Fun recipe for turkey pilaf. It's ground turkey, pine nuts, onion, carrots, wild rice, spinach and cherries (or cranberries) Great in the fall. Enjoy them.

Help, two large zucchini's. Recipe ideas?

I made zucchini chips the other night. Slice the zucchini into 1/4 inch rounds, dip in 2 egg whites and then into panko mixed with parmesean and black pepper. Bake at 475 until browned, flip and repeat. I sprinkled them with sea salt and dipped in plain yogurt. They were great. I bet they'd be good with some lemon sprinkled on top too.

First experience smoking food-what to make?

Well I am very excited-for my birthday- I got a weber smokey mountain smoker(I think only fellow chowhounds know how exciting this gift could be). I have limited experience with smoking (ie-non at all) and am wondering what would be a great first food to start with. We have cherry wood chunks and am hoping to find something we have a good success with the first time out. I need to act fast. I have to run to the store to get some meat to have tonight!!! I know it needs to sit in rub for awhile!! Thanks for your help!!!!

Replace Weber grill or buy new

Hi! We have a 10 year old weber genesis that we LOVE. It has traveled to England with us and is still kicking. However, we are at the point where we will need to replace our grates, flavorizer bars, and possibly the ignitor (so about 230 dollars). I am on the fence about doing the overhaul versus buying a new one (I'd probably want the burner). Anyone feel it is worth it to keep it kicking vs. buy new? Thanks for any help. I'm unsure of the average lifespan of the undying Weber...

Where to eat before a Red Wing Game?

Hi everyone,
We are going to a Red Wing game on Monday night and I am looking for a place relatively nearby (or with shuttle) to eat before the game. We love most varieties of food...
We will be going to Slow's on Sat. which is where we had thought we would go in the first place but now need other suggestions!
Thanks for any help you can give!

Detroit: meal before concert near Fox theater

Hi
I am looking for a great dinner before the Killer's concert in Detroit on Wednesday (at the State theater).
We are looking for something relatively near by that won't require us to be dressed to the nines as we will be going to a general admission concert! We'd prefer not to end up at the Hockeytown since we've been there before (it's been awhile but none the less).
We like all kinds of food! Any suggestions would be fantastic!
Thanks
Yoful
PS Any great bars to hit after would be appreciated too!
