A local Asian restaurant makes a truly outstanding curry noodle soup with tofu. I'd like to figure out how to make the soup myself. [more inside]
The title says it all: I'm going to be in San Francisco tomorrow and would like to buy a box of fruit-flavored mooncakes. I'm aware that this is a non-authentic choice, but since they are available in China proper, surely somewhere in SF should import them as well? [more inside]
My stupid ridiculous rice cooker keeps boiling over, and I've only had it four days! What do I do? [more inside]

Sodastream seems to have stopped producing many of their flavors. So far the alternatives for diet flavoring seem to be Crystal light, Prairie Moon, or shaved ice flavoring syrup. Prairie Moon gets bad reviews for their flavorings. What other diet alternatives exist? I am not interested in making my own as a weekend project, I'm looking for point-click-buy convenience.
We've moved and now have access to a kitchen larger a postage stamp, a gas range instead of an electric, and super-easy access to an international market that blows my mind every time I enter it. I'm a decent cook and have my food processor and kitchen aid mixer attachments at the ready. Can you give me your best-est recipes, cooking tips, and purchasing pointers that might help us out with this wonderful situation? [more inside]
I am going on a first date on Friday evening. She suggested we meet up locally after work and that she would bring her dog for a walk. Since the after work time frame is right in the middle of dinnertime, I suggested we make a mini picnic out of it and I'll bring some food that we could have at the park. How do I keep this stuff warm... [more inside]
My sheer level of "doesn't know how to cook" is possibly outside the realm of most people's imaginations. So in front of me I have: a bag of dried green lentils, a can of diced tomatoes, a box of frozen spinach, a bag of Russet potatoes, a bulb of garlic, nutritional yeast, liquid aminos, and a sea salt grinder. I also have a gas stovetop and pots/pans. Assuming NO other ingredients, please tell me very specifically how to turn this into a...dal? soup? something else? [more inside]
I tried making a hot sauce a little while ago. While it was tasty, it felt like the heat and the flavor were 2 different things. I'm hoping to make them come together. [more inside]
It's my turn to prepare dinner for my book club, but my challenge is my apartment is way too small to have all 7 members in my home at once. Instead, I'm planning to use a small common space for parties available on the ground floor of my apartment building. This is fine, but it means I will need to carry whatever I make up and down from my apartment in the elevator. Can you help me brainstorm an easy vegetarian starter, main course, and side dish which can be tasty given these conditions? [more inside]
My husband and I will be heading to Portland this week. We visited a couple years ago and had some amazing food thanks to some recommendations from Portland MeFites. We'd love some updated recommendations for where to eat over the next couple days! [more inside]
I'll be in Burlington, VT on Tuesday/Wednesday night for work and need some restaurant recommendations! [more inside]
What are some kid- and leftover-friendly meal ideas for a group of people across the US to make together, in two or fewer hours, with ingredients that are readily available and high-quality? [more inside]
My all-time favorite food is Mexican/Latin american food. I'm a pretty accomplished cook and I am semi-fluent in Spanish, as such, I am looking for your best, traditional Spanish Language latin american cookbooks/recipe websites. [more inside]
My electric kettle (an older model of this design) usually shuts itself off within 10 seconds of reaching a rolling boil. For the past few weeks, it has remained boiling for much longer (on the order of minutes: long enough for me to notice and shut it off manually if I'm in another room). What are some possible causes for this, and is there any way I can try to fix it?
My Japanese-American friend who moved back to Japan about ten years ago has been harassing me ever since for certain American-style products. Does anyone know a Japanese source for properly cured pork? Nothing fancy, just standard smoked slices. Alternatively, does anyone have a way to get cheap legal American meat into Japanese hands without too much hassle? Since my friend is behaving a lot like a desperate junky, I will assume he is willing to pay a premium for this service.
