Shishito peppers--where else to try them

Late to the game here, but Gjelina on Abbot Kinney in Venice serves a wonderful version.

Anyone ever add bananas to mashed potatoes?

Yes! I think Chez Jay been serving it for over 40 years actually. The recipe was published once by request in Gourmet.

Best Peanut Butter

Well, second best anyway. We too, love real PB, peanuts only, no sugar or salt, has to be stirred ... But Santa Cruz Dark Roasted Crunchy beats Adams by a nose. It's PB and onion sandwiches at our house.

Matza Brie

No, no, no -- matzo brie is best with a little horseradish. Some like it sweet, but some like it hot.

Zatar sounds good too.
