Dutch Oven woes

Someone turned the wrong dial on an electric stove top. An empty old orange Cousances 22 (like a Creuset) enamel pot was sitting on the high burner for a while, maybe 20-30 min. The interior was previously a beige enamel with a darkened bottom, but now the center bottom is pale white with a chalky texture. Could this be still safe to cook with? If not, can we fix this?

KitchenAid snafu - should I be worried about stainless steel shavings?

I used the wrong-sized whisk attachment on my KitchenAid and now the inside of the bowl is scraped up (there's a perfect ring around the upper third of the stainless steel bowl, right where the sides of the whisk were scraping against it). Should I be worried about metal shavings in my cake?

Food in Vegas, Veggie edition

We won't have a rental car, so probably most things we'd do would be on the strip. Neither of us have been to Vegas in years, and understand the dining options have evolved quite a bit from the all-you-can-eat buffets I remember. We eat very little meat. What vegetarian/pescatarian restaurants or meals shouldn't we miss? I did see these two previouslys, but figured restaurants change quickly.

I need chocolate (cake).

I'm looking for a unicorn of a chocolate cake recipe: I really just want a chocolate cake recipe that's moist, and accessible -- easy enough to make to be my go to, but something that tastes fancy enough to make for a special occasion. It needs to be a fudgy chocolate cake that is worthy of being eaten on its own (but would still go great with frosting). [more inside]

Does Chicago have an aversion to ice water?

Just got back from a trip to Chicago (my first time visiting, it was unbelievably awesome), but something has been bugging us about the trip. Every time we ate at a restaurant and were served water, it came from a pitcher with no ice (6 meals over 3 days). The first time my wife and I thought nothing of it, but as it kept happening we really started to wonder what was going on. Everywhere we've lived (OH, NY, CT, MA) water served from a pitcher generally has ice in it. What's going on in Chicago?

Special DillIvery!

I have a large bunch of fresh dill. I've already made a batch of awesome pickles, but I need ideas of how to use the rest! I don't grow it, so I'm not sure what to do with it. Please hit me with your most dill-icious recipes that make use of the fresh herb. No dietary restrictions or allergies, southeastern US so I can access lots of premium farm produce right about now as well as just about any other ingredient.

Iberico ham in a city apartment

After reading this amazing iberico ham article in a Metafilter post I have decided I need a top end iberico bone-in ham in my life. I want to buy the knife holder, spend 700 dollars, the whole thing. I live in an apartment in a big city. Assuming I follow the care & feeding instructions properly: (1) Will the ham make my whole small place smell like ham? (2) how do you stop bugs from eating the ham / and it will attract rodents or roaches? We have the usual fruit flies and in the summer with the back door open we get bigger flies but nothing else (yet). (3) What, on average, will a cat do with the ham when I'm not looking?

My daily treat to myself is a mid-afternoon coffee. But, I recently learnt that coffee causes hydrogen peroxide to synthesize in the body. I know this is probably in very small quantities but still I'd like to minimize my exposure to it... [more inside]
