Places to eat near Vaughan, Ontario

We're visiting the Toronto area and staying in a hotel near the Vaughan IKEA. For lunches we'll be in Toronto, but for dinners we'd like to stay within a 10-15 minute drive of our hotel (we've got a 1 y.o. so we're on his schedule). What are some good places to eat in this area? Thanks!

Oyster Bar in Vancouver BC

What are your personal recommendations? I'm probably the only person in my traveling party who is looking forward to this, so bonus if the place has a good cocktail/wine list or a nice view. But I want to know which is your recommendation for its oysters alone. Thanks!

Need suggestions for high-protein breakfasts

Dear god am I sick of Greek yogurt. TL; DR: I've been aiming to eat more protein lately; getting between 30-50g at breakfast would be ideal. I feel I'm in a bit of a rut, however --- I have been switching up between greek yogurt w fruit, smoothies w protein powder, and omelettes. I need more ideas. Any help? [more inside]

This ground turkey smells very strongly of turkey

I have cooked with ground turkey for years. Tonight, we went to make tacos using the usual ground turkey I buy. I opened the raw meat package, which looked fine and wasn't expired, and immediately I noticed that it smelled more like turkey than usual. I didn't think much of it, but upon cooking, the house became filled with an intense turkey smell, and the tacos tasted REALLY like turkey. What does this mean? Am I going to get sick? [more inside]

Remote casserole delivery service

DC Mefites! I have a friend with two young kids whose husband passed away last week after short illness. We can't get there (and, quite frankly, they don't need us right now with the amount of local/family support on-hand), but we'd like to do something for them to ease some of day-to-day burden at some point, without being an impersonal fruit basket.

Spice racks without noses?

I've never been able to smell things - not toilets, not food, not smoke, nothing. So when it comes to cooking, I don't have a good idea of what different spices do. Is there anyone that can advise on which spices I should keep around, and how to use them? [more inside]

Too much in my crockpot -safe to eat?

I packed two whole chickens in a crock pot and cooked it overnight. I know the chicken took a long time to get hot, and chose not to risk eating it the next day. Was I wise or too did I throw away good food?

How to Purchase 400 Conejos Mezcal in the US

I'm trying to purchase this brand of mezcal for my BF's birthday later this month. We had it when we were in Mexico and he liked it a lot. I'm not finding much options online and not seeing anything that would ship to the US. Anyone know any other ways? I'm in Texas.

Waiter, there's a fly in my soup!

The other night, I went to a restaurant and ordered a dish that was served inedibly salty. Well, when I say "inedibly," I speak figuratively, because we ate it. We didn't enjoy it, but we ate it. Which raised the question: when is it acceptable to send something back as a restaurant and ask for a replacement not because it's actually defective, but because it's just plain bad? [more inside]
