I was just given the (very generous!) gift of a charcoal kettle grill with GET THIS a pizza stone, pizza peel, and this brilliant thingy
to convert a kettle grill into a pizza oven. I have not only never grilled anything before, I've never been remotely interested in doing so until pretty much today. How can I stop worrying* and learn to love my new grill? [more inside]posted by Sara C. at 5:17 PM - 3 answers
I'm looking for a place where I can grab a coffee and read a book preferably outside. I live in the St. Lawrence Market area of the city, so someplace around there would be preferred. [more inside]posted by jmmpangaea at 4:23 PM - 3 answers
The other day I made a meal that was nearly all vegetables -- sweet potatoes, roasted asparagus, and an apple, arugula, and feta salad. It was a great meal and I didn't even realize until I was eating it that it was basically all vegetables, rather than my normal routine of basing a meal around a starch (although the sweet potato does have a lot of carbs). I'm looking for more full-meal ideas where vegetables make up a lion's share of the meal. [more inside]posted by Deathalicious at 11:27 PM - 24 answers
I've been a picky eater all my life but I am trying to expand. I go into the supermarket and see all the different cheeses and I really want to just try something, do something, but I'm scared to just buy a hunk of cheese and eat some. Where do I start with cheese? [more inside]posted by Danila at 2:07 PM - 60 answers
I'm going into my senior year college and have relied on a fraternity meal plan and eating out often. What should I be buying at the grocery store regularly, and what are some quick and healthy meals to make regularly? [more inside]posted by seandq at 9:49 AM - 28 answers
I have never made my own beer, but I need to make some in a rather specific circumstance, which is why I'm asking for advice here rather than a homebrew forum. For an art event, we want to have on display in a gallery a quantity of beer-in-progress, with a specific timeline about when we want it “done.” In other words, I want to prepare this beer and then display it basically with an announcement of when we will serve it.

My friend will be having her second baby today after an uncomfortable pregnancy (extreme nausea + Houston heat). I want to make her a gift basket of stuff she couldn't use while pregnant - booze, cigarettes, soft cheeses, processed meats. What else can I get her?

I want to make those Italian amaretti cookies that call for almond paste. I have some almond pulp and some duck eggs.. Will these ingredients work? I guess I could just experiment but I don't want to waste any of the first dozen duck eggs on something that's not delicious. Can I sub honey or ground dates for the sugar? I guess if you sub too many ingredients, maybe the name isn't the same but the bottom line is, will this taste good? posted by ms_rasclark at 8:25 AM - 12 answers
I am not having luck buying good sugar free marmalade. I've looked in grocery stores, where I can sometimes find Smuckers, but it's not great. My online shopping skills seem to have deserted me for this task, and i don't know what specialty stores I should be looking at....
I live in the Boston area, so have access to a wide range of specialty type stores, and definitely willing to order online as well.
Anyone have sources for sugar-free preserves or marmalades? posted by darsh at 8:00 AM - 7 answers
I love love love the coleslaw at Fresh Air BBQ in Jackson, Ga. I have tried to find the recipe online with no luck. Is anyone familiar with this style coleslaw so that you can tell me how to make it? I cant ask the folks at the restaurant because they are far far away. Thank you! posted by orangemacky at 7:36 AM - 4 answers
Going camping, responsible for lunches. Need ideas. Googling primarily gives me chili and hot dogs. Ideally, I would like tasty, protein-rich lunch ideas (sandwiches are perfectly acceptable and maybe even desirable) made from ingredients that can be kept at room temperature and which have minimal cleanup.

My husband will be in Austin for business next week, and needs suggestions for both barbeque and Tex-Mex. He's not really looking for a polished dining experience; he's looking for seriously excellent grub. Thanks! posted by Specklet at 4:01 PM - 33 answers
