Dearborn recs

Needed for casual/diner/bakery:
With children, so nothing overly ethnic.
Not greasy (were hoping no burgers).
We can do Panera or similar type of chain if necessary, but was hoping for non-chain.
If there is a good chain restaurant, please let me know...

Tilapia (farm raised)

We have those and they are great. I am looking for something to replace tilapia in my piccata and blackened fish taco recipes.

Tilapia (farm raised)

I used to love eating farm raised tilapia - blackened with salsa, grilled, breaded...

I like the texture and mild flavor.

I stopped two years ago when everyone around me told me how bad it was for me....
Is it? What is a similar type of fish that I might like?

Best bet for breakfast and supper...sunset?
Food is priority...seafood particularly.

Savannah three day getaway recs needed for first weekend in June

Also looking for good eats on Tybee Island, on the beach or with a view preferred but not necessary...crab, oysters or other seafood.

We'd like to eat that way for two of our nights.

We are foodies; in saying that, we like fresh, flavorful and like street food Mexican to high end dining.

We're looking for recs for three days. Lunch, we'd like to do take out if we can or food trucks two of those days.
We were thinking taco boy one night for drinks and Mexican.
We'd love to do Mrs. Wilkes' Dining room but don't know if we're willing to stand in line for two hours and then spend two hours eating on such a short trip. We do want one traditional good southern meal.

Italian Canesciune ? recipe

That must be a dialect name; family is from the Lazio region. They're called FIADONE originally; here is the link:

Advice on vintage percolators

Jayt90 - I know...it makes no sense. Maybe I just didn't have the right regular coffee maker...

Advice on vintage percolators

Well, my Pyrex stove top glass percolators have both broken.
I have noticed at tag sales and second hand vintage electric percolators. What grand does anyone recommend? We prefer perked coffee over drip. What about Farberware? We're looking for home use up to 12 cups.

ATK blueberry scone recipe

Glad I found this. I want to make these ones from Joy Of Baking.
http://www.annies-eats.com/2007/07/10...

I froze my organic raspberries and I am worried that it'll be too watery. Any suggestions from experienced bakers? Is the ATK one still a better one to do. I am a VERY experienced cook but a VERY inexperienced baker.

Need an alternative to Bar Buca

Are these small plates places? I might buck it and see if they want to do Spanish small plates...been to Bar Isabel and liked it!

Need an alternative to Bar Buca

We've been several times with different groups of people and although we've thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks, we are all craving a different, not-so-cement vibe. We also want to sit at not high tables as some of the girls in the group are vertically challenged and found it uncomfortable.

Ideas for same type of food/drink and quality?

Kleinburg copper creek

Anyone can speak to the brunch there?

Michigan Spanish purveyors of food

Is this a restaurant or grocer? I am looking for a grocer of Spanish, not Mexican items. Canned fish, sausage, jamon, paella ingredients.

Michigan Spanish purveyors of food

I usually order from La Tienda but was wondering if there was anything in the Detroit to Sterling Heights area.

What is this libation implement called?

Thanks; I didn't realize it would set off so many critics....maybe I am too accepting. I want to give them to coworkers (all women) with a variety of three mini bottles...they like gimmicky things.

What is this libation implement called?

I do not judge: in fact, I can go high end and do but can rough it too. I don't think a mini bottle is that high end that a spout would be that "low life".

Yes, want to use the for beer I said - use at BBQs and outdoor parties where I want a cold bottle and not schlep around a glass.

I saw these on the red carpet last night and love them for those of us who do not enjoy drinking out of a bottle. Anyone know where one can get these for beer bottles or mini champagne/wine bottles?

Bar Buca

Love the place: had beets and were fabulous. Anything is great. Disliked the seating; uncomfortable! Bring a sweater or shawl depending on where you're sitting, you may get a draft from the door.
