My friends don't want rotgut liquor; weird!

I don’t like the taste of any kind of alcohol, so if I’m drinking myself (just for its effects), bottom shelf liquor is fine with me. But I don’t want to subject my friends to that since apparently there is a real taste difference. I also don't care to waste money on anything super expensive, especially since it's most likely to be used in mixed drinks. So what should I buy? I'm in upstate New York, if that matters.

Give me a leg up! (smoked, cured)

I bought these smoked turkey legs at the store. Looking at the ingredients, they are cured. I know that some smoked turkey legs are pre-cooked, but these don't look cooked and have the standard "safe handling instructions" sticker. I want to cook them whole, not as part of collard greens or soup. Should I cook these as if they are raw, or as if they are pre-cooked? Bonus points for recipe suggestions.

Easy fillings for macarons?

Looking for casual NYC restaurant to appease my family?

(aka: there's probably a nice unassuming restaurant in an ungentrified part of southern Brooklyn, right? ) While in town for a relative's wedding, 13 of my family members, from 12 months to 70 and all ages in between, are looking for a casual sit-down dinner in New York City on a Saturday evening in June. Could you recommend us some restaurants that would be suitable for us despite all of our clashing requirements & preferences listed inside? [more inside]

Does unsweetened sriracha exist? Where do I get it?

I like normal Huy Fong sriracha, but I don't love it. I find it too cloyingly sweet. Does any other brand make a similar chili sauce without any added sugar or sweeteners? [more inside]

What name-brand grocery items are worth the extra money?

Last night I opened two bags of frozen peas: one Hannaford's (store brand), and one Trader Joe's. It was like they were two different foods. The Trader Joes peas were plump, sweet, bright green and the store brand stuff were pebbles. I have only bought storebrand everything for so long that I'm wondering what else I'm missing out on?

Help me avoid the Domino's app.

I need some suggestions for super quick, super low effort meals to keep in the house at all times. Things that don't take much longer to make than a spoonful of peanut butter straight out of the jar. Things that don't spoil, because I never know when the demon of epic exhaustion is going to strike. Things that I can feel good about feeding to my kid, nutritionally. I have fallen into this trap where it has to be either empanadas from scratch or takeout, and it is unsustainable.
