Easy Lunch Ideas for Nut-Free Preschool?

My 3 year old is about to start preschool at a nut-free school. What are some ideas for lunch that are PB&J-level easy and toddler-friendly? Searching for this online yields a lot of parenting blogs that think I'm going to bake scones or make homemade beef bourgignon every night.

'Twas the Best of Candies - Uh, No, 'Twas the WORST of Candies

Crappy nostalgia-filter! Trying to remember the name these weird, powdery little diet candy tablets that were briefly sold during the 1990s. They were profoundly strange and I've never seen anything like them before or since. Everything I can remember under the fold. [more inside]

How is black and white cookie made?

How does the icing get on black and white cookies? The line between the chocolate and the vanilla is often very precise but with some overlap. Is it dipped? Brushed? Poured? Is there masking? Search engine brings up lots of home recipes but no descriptions of how it is made in commercial bakeries. PLEASE HELP ME ANSWER THIS BURNING QUESTION.

Will dry ice in carbonated punch cause an explosion?

My go-to punch formula is .75L liquor, 1.75L fruit juice and 2L soda. I want to put some dry ice in the punch bowl to make that cool roiling fog. Will the carbonation in the soda interact badly with the dry ice, i.e., in a Mentos-and-Coke sort of disaster? If so, do you know of any workarounds other than the obvious removal of the soda? Punch suggestions also welcome!

Delicious ground pepper recipes

I just bought a new pepper grinder and am looking for some recipes that will let me use it as much as possible. I saw this thread about using whole peppercorns but I am specifically looking for recipes that use ground pepper. My pepper grinder has settings to grind from fine to coarse so any type of recipe that uses large amounts of ground pepper is welcome!

Can anyone ID this flattish cast-iron frying pan?

I picked this up recently and unfortunately the bottom is too rusty to ID it. I can read "ERIE" on the bottom and nothing else. It measures 11" in diameter across the top and about 1.25" deep including the bottom. Any idea what it is? Also, the rust is pretty serious--how would I go about dealing with that? Is this still usable? Pics are here.

Do You Have Any Diet Air?

Baby Kitty has a sad tummy, where if I eat any form of dairy, nuts, soy, or eggs - his diapers look like a Tarantino film. I need recipes that avoid these ingredients. However, as always, there are complications. I will be traveling in two weeks and will not have a fully stocked kitchen. [more inside]

Taco Mayo seasoning mix recipes for tatter tots?

Any ideas for a homemade dry barbecue/taco seasoning? I love the seasoning on Taco Mayo's Potato Locos. I received a small sample and it's great on roasted chicken or on other microwaved vegetables. I've used a brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder mix, but it's not quite the same.
