Allergy-friendly bakery in central/south Indiana?
We're looking for a bakery that can make us a small cake or a small batch of cupcakes with a mind to allergy restrictions (nuts and dairy are the major concerns, but there are a few other items we'd like to avoid as well) somewhere in the vicinity of Indianapolis or Bloomington, IN. Having someone deliver to those areas might also be an option if the price isn't astronomically high. Google turns up one bakery that can accommodate the dairy restrictions, but not the nut restrictions. Any recommendations, or do I need to get out the spray bottle and apron and figure out how to do this myself...?

Can I eat this, delayed FedEx meat shipment edition
I had a shipment of frozen meat that was delayed by bad weather last week in Memphis. It was shipped on Thursday frozen in a styrofoam box to be delivered on Friday. Thanks to a weather delay, I didn't get it until Monday evening. The box sat in a truck in the local FedEx parking lot all day Saturday and Sunday (and probably most of Friday also). [more inside]

What's wrong with refined vegetable oils?
My husband and I have heard and read conflicting information about oils and fats so I thought I'd turn to Mefi to help me understand it all better. We're confused about lots of things. Should we be careful about how much oil we consume? Is a particular oil really better than another? Is cold pressed better than refined even for cooking? Is the very act of heating oil just evil? Are unheated cold pressed oils actually healthy? [more inside]

a really good hot dog in Europe?
My SO's older son will be 17 in the fall. I want to give him something that will provide a nominal income for him as he won't be able to work due to the requirements of his college. Options I am considering are: a greeting card business with some other members of his family; helping to run a summer camp; performing songs about stuff on Spotify; and; having an interest in a hot dog stand. I think hot dog stand is probably the most available option, followed by greeting cards. Problem is sourcing high quality franks in England. Sweden? I would rather they be all-beef than pork, and there being a halal or kosher option.

Pizza in Brooklyn?
I'll be in Brooklyn next week for work staying at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott and I'm looking for a great local place to get a slice. This is the one food I crave the most and I just can't find any great pizza here in Central Florida. So please help me out and tell me where to get a great slice! Not just classic NYC style either, I'm open to any style.

A Thomas-Keller-level cookbook, but with lighter, healthier fare?
My boyfriend is an amazing cook and has been making delicious, bacon-fat-heavy dishes from Thomas Keller's cookbook. My waistline and tummy prefer lighter, semi-vegetarian fare, but I don't want to discourage his wonderful cooking. Is there a cookbook the two of us might be equally happy with?

Why call it "Seafood Restaurant?"
Why do some Chinese restaurants have names ending in "Seafood Restaurant" when most of their menu is not seafood? I've found this most often in North American Chinatown areas with menus and signage in Chinese characters. Is "seafood restaurant" an incomplete translation of something Chinese or describes some particular culinary tradition, the same way a "steakhouse" describes a kind of restaurant where I have a good idea of what kind of non-steak foods to expect? Anywhere I can read up on what that tradition is? Or are they simply trying to advertise that they are particularly good at seafood?

Can I slow-cook tough beef?
I apparently over-cooked some stir-fry beef. It's edible but horribly tough and sort of tasteless, though it's very lean, good beef. I want to know if I can salvage it by slow-cooking it overnight. Anyone? [more inside]
