Summon us a dinner genie
I have a baby, a preschooler, a commute, and a spouse who works late. I need dinner to magically appear on the table within minutes of walking in the door. I don't know if this will involve a genie, a person, a recipe, or "one easy trick restaurants don't want you to know" like those shady sidebar ads. [more inside]

How to Cook Indian Cuisine
I know how to cook in general, and I know Indian food relatively well in terms of...you know, eating it. But my attempts to cook Indian dishes myself have never turn out. Where can I find clear, dependable recipes for (primarily Northern) Indian staples? (By "staples," I mean ordinary dishes like: palak paneer, bhurtha, aloo paratha, dal. My favorite foods tend to be vegetarian, but I'm not a vegetarian myself, so either veg or non-veg is fine). [more inside]

Seeking Faygo in DC
No, I'm not a juggalo - just a guy living in the DC area with several friends from Michigan. I thought it might be fun to surprise some of my friends with Faygo redpop and homemade Superman ice cream at our next shindig. Problem is, I've had a hard time finding Faygo in the DC area. Any ideas? (The Faygo website has proven a dead-end.) [more inside]

Best resources for buying spices? (Online or Seattle)
One of the things I miss about living in the big city is access to a Penzeys spice store. The other thing I miss is having enough money to afford to shop there. I am looking for any good resources on where to buy spices, either online, or within a few hours of Seattle, which is now my nearest metropolis. "The spice must flow!" [more inside]

Meals that I can make ahead of time, freeze, defrost
I will be working for the next two weeks outdoors and for long hours. I would like to try and eat actual, healthy meals or snacks, but it will be hard because I won't really have access to a microwave. Therefore, I will need recipes for things that I can prepare ahead of time, freeze and then I can eat later without having to heat it up. It will have ample time to defrost (it's hot outside!), but I just won't be able to microwave it or anything. Are there any meals out there like this? [more inside]

I want to get stoked on vitamins and nutrients.
What are your favorite healthy plant-inclusive dinners that you actually get excited to shop for, cook, and eat? I'm looking less for "I put onions in my sauteed spinach" or "I cook lentils into a flavorless gruel," and more for something like "I roast chicken with garbanzos and cherry tomatoes, then serve it with a smokey yogurt sauce."

Canadina Whiskies Filter: where to start?
I am a bourbon-drinking girl living in Toronto. I'd like to get to know Canada by way of its mash-- what are some great Canadian whiskies? Nothing too expensive- say, around or under $50 for a 750ml bottle? I like smooth whiskies with complex flavors that are not too peaty.

Do you have a favorite vacuum sealer you can recommend?
We're looking to get a good vacuum sealer to assist in dry aging steaks. We had a cheap vacuum sealer a few years ago that created packets that leaked - sometimes after an hour, others after a day or two, but always leaked. Is there an affordable vacuum sealer that anyone has had good experience with? I've seen this but am hoping that there may have been some updates in the last three years,

What do I do with raw cocoa balls?
I bought a few boxes of raw cocoa balls in mexico. As far as I can tell, they're just pure cocoa and just enough honey so that they stick together. They don't dissolve and they don't seem to melt that well either in boiling water. They're a little bit bitter just eating them out of the box. Any suggestions for what I can with them?
