My sister is on a very restricted diet to help out her immune system. No milk, no eggs, rare if ever gluten. Her favorite sometimes treat is See's Scotchmallows (milk or dark chocolate, honey marshmallow, and caramel) and she is looking for an alternative. I've googled around and looked at Etsy and some favorite vegan places, but I am not seeing anything that looks good. I thought maybe the the Vosges version, but it is made on the same equipment with milk.
Does anything have any recommendations or something else that might help her miss them less?
Thank you in advance. posted by eleanna at 9:54 PM - 5 answers

For Christmas I'd like to take my husband to somewhere (a restaurant? wine shop? cheese shop?) where someone can sit down with us and teach us about (and let us sample) wine and cheese pairings. Is there anywhere like that in the North Hollywood area? [more inside] posted by McPuppington the Third at 12:45 PM - 6 answers

I have a basic cooking question. Big pot of chili -- too much heat. It probably has something to do with the amount of ridiculously hot peppers we put in it. We have no tomato products and are down to bullion cubes and beer. How can I make this edible, quickly? posted by cedar at 5:10 PM - 10 answers

I happened upon an extremely good sale on 2-liter bottles of soda yesterday, and stocked up for entertaining this holiday season. Like a big dummy, I forgot they were in my trunk over night, and when I went and retrieved them this morning, they were partially frozen. [more inside] posted by mzwz at 5:20 AM - 14 answers

My family Christmas lunch has blown out from the usual 15 people to at least 27 and my original plan to roast a whole sirloin in the Webber isn't going to cut it.
I have a motorised spit-roaster (charcoal, rated to 25kg) and I need to cook beef. What sort of cut should I order from the butcher to feed the crowd? [more inside] posted by ninazer0 at 10:45 PM - 1 answers
I can't seem to find a recipe I'm fairly certain I've seen in the past for peanut butter cups. I seem to recall that it involved not using any actual peanut butter, but starting with peanuts and grinding them up kinda coarsely with something else in them to get that weird, chunky, not-quite-peanut-butter consistency to the filling. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? posted by DoctorFedora at 9:42 PM - 4 answers
