When you actually have time to cook, what do you cook?

I'm about to have a week off while in-between jobs and one thing I'd like to do with that time is make some amazing dinners for myself and my husband. I like cooking, but as my husband and I are both full time we usually stick to recipes that take 30 mins or less. But if you had, let's say, 4 hours to dedicate to dinner what would you make? Details within... [more inside]

Do pregnant Japanese women eat sushi?

I'm interested in thoughts and superstitions centred around eating and food in pregnancy around the world. What are you advised to eat or avoid in your country when pregnant? What are you told will happen to your baby (or its character) if you eat specific foods. Also, do Japanese women really give up sushi when pregnant and do the French give up their camembert and brie?

Buying Bourbon in NYC and Brooklyn

I'm a new bourbon collector and I'm wondering what stores in Brooklyn and NYC have the widest and best selections? Also, while I'm at it, what are some of your favorite bottles? But more importantly, where can I buy them locally?

10 Years in - there's a lot to wine about!

Just over ten years ago I asked the following Question . So we're now coming up to our tenth Wedding Anniversary. Looking to get my wife something special, we're planning a trip away later in the year so that's sorted, but also want something for the day. My idea is for me to get a bottle of wine from every year we've been married. Now not knowing much about wine looking for recommendations for each year. Budget is to spend about £30-40 on each bottle, with the landmark years (wedding, kids born) spending a bit extra.

Help me understand this restaurant reservation policy?

Okay, yes, apparently I was raised in a barn. There's a restaurant I'd like to patronize*, but I'm stuck on their reservation policy. Specifically, their use of the term "dinner seating." Please explain to someone who frequently fails to wear a tuxedo, even well past 6:00 pm. [more inside]

Mother's Day Lunch In NYC Like The Boathouse?

I'm taking my Mom out for lunch on May 23rd. Normally she'd like to just eat at the bar around the corner when visiting but it's the 'Mothers Day' lunch so I'd like to go up a few notches. Ideally I'd take her to the Central Park Boathouse but they don't do reservations on the weekends. Where can I take her in town that's sufficiently 'nice' to be a special occasion but not overly fancy/exotic/hip and has a full lunch-y lunch menu, not just an egg- brunch? [more inside]

Foods with the energy of oatmeal?

I like the energy and state of mind that eating oatmeal gives me. Are there any boxed, packaged cold cereals that have the same ingredients? What other foods generally have a similar nutritional profile in terms of energy?

Where can I buy Dutch Crunch bread in SF to make my own sandwiches?

I want to make sandwiches for work on Dutch Crunch bread -- it's amazing. However, the only places I've had it are sandwich shops that are selling finished sandwiches, not the bread itself. Please tell me where in SF I can buy loaves of this crunchy goodness!

What are your favorite diet friendly sweet treats?

My wife and I are both working on dieting, focusing on portion control, eating more veggies, and cutting our carbs. It's going OK so far, but my wife has found that she's getting really frequent "sweet" cravings. So, I figured I might as well try asking the internet: What are some good ways to help answer that craving without busting our dieting plans?

Homemade granola bars

I'm hooked on these really dense, chewy granola bars from a bakery in Columbus, Ohio, but I live in North Carolina and it's not reasonable to make them mail me granola bars all the time. I would like to try making them myself at home instead. [more inside]

What are fun, complicated dessert recipes I can make in my home?

I really love baking although I don't love cooking. I made donuts for the first time over the weekend and it was fun! I'd never fried anything before! I'd like to try some more new challenges! What are your suggestions? I have the basic stuff (food processor, stand mixer, dutch oven, double boiler) but nothing particularly fancy. What desserts -- tarts, cakes, pies, cookies, donuts, candies, new types of desserts I have never before encountered -- will make me try new things in the kitchen and help me feel proud of the tasty and beautiful creation I have created?

What dish (dessert?) can I make with Vietnamese coconut chips?

I have a large bag of these Vietnamese coconut chips, which are sweet and delicious. While I could easily eat them a handful at a time until they were all gone, I'm wondering if there are any dishes where the crunchiness might add something. For example, I understand some people eat them with fruit and yoghurt; in Vietnam we also had them as part of a fruit drink layered with ice and coconut milk, which was amazing (would love that recipe!) Any ideas?

Where and what should we eat across America?

I'm going on a road trip from Boston to San Diego in June, and we want to find some fun places to eat--restaurants (from holes-in-the-wall to fancy), cafés, ice cream, food truck, foods found in only your town. Anything and everything goes! We've got time, so we can veer off our path, too. I can use the internet of course (and I will), but I would love to hear from locals who know stuff the internet doesn't (especially in smaller towns/rural areas). Here's our route. And a map is also attached [more inside]
