I've been bringing in something for my grad students to snack on during our weekly evening seminar because it straddles the dinner hour. I'm tired of making hummus and tea sandwiches. Other ideas? [more inside]

What should I bake for the bake off finale?!

So I've got really into baking while watching The Great British Bake Off. I guess that's happened all over the UK. We have a tradition of enjoying some homemade baked treat during the show. The finale is tomorrow. I've previously made: pecan pie, bakewell tart, croissants, pain aux raisin, baked cheesecake, salted caramel brownies etc etc. Can anyone suggest something similarly "easy" but impressive to make for the finale tomorrow? I don't mind beginning something tonight to be finished tomorrow evening. [more inside]

Toaster Oven Cuisine

Let's say you don't have access to a full size, traditional/convection oven. But you have a large toaster oven - large enough to rotisserie a chicken. What baked, broiled, roasted or braised dishes can you still make in the toaster oven? [more inside]

Transporting hot sandwich - ORD to BOS

I'm in Chicago getting ready to fly home to Boston. If I buy an Italian beef sandwich (sold hot) right before I board the airplane at 7pm ET and manage to get it into my fridge at home by around 11pm ET is there any chance that it would be edible tomorrow with a bit of microwaving? By edible I only mean safe to eat -- aesthetics are not a consideration.

Spending four days in Austin. What to see, do and eat?

SO and I will be in Austin Tx from late on October 30 to early on November 3. We're staying close to downtown and we'll have a vehicle. We're not into the 20 something bar scene. We'd much rather listen to some music (blues and country) and eat some good food. Not really picky eaters, but at least one BBQ meal. Franklins is amazing, but we're not sure we want to line up for 3 hours. Any suggestions from the community?

What makes an airline choose Lorna Doones as a long haul-only snack?

A few years ago, on a plane flight, I looked at the list of free snacks -- potato chips, cookies, etc. Next to one (and only one) item (the Lorna Doone cookies), I saw the annotation: "long haul flights only". What (probably) are their criteria for this choice, and what makes Lorna Doones a good choice for this distinction?

What are some good 'emergency foods' to keep on hand?

Currently I'm not so well off financially and would like ideas for relatively inexpensive, healthy 'emergency foods' that last ages and are good to keep on hand. Think steel cut oats and peanuts, foods that can fill you up over and over before you run out. I want to fill my apartment with such foods.

Best place to eat in Boston or region.

I am watching Chef's Table. I love good food and dream to go to Massimo Bottura's restaurant some day... some day. Until then I am hoping to find some place in Boston that has a chef that loves food as much as him! It's for a birthday celebration but doesn't need to be fancy or amazing service or anything - just terrific, inventive food. Do I have to go to New York or is there something here in Massachusetts?

What can I do with Rosemary?

I have a ginormous Rosemary bush which I need to trim back to manageable amounts (at the moment it covers our path, which is obviously not ideal). I like Rosemary with lamb, but theres limited variations on that. Are there any recipes where Rosemary might not be the obvious thing to use? Does it freeze? Any other non-obvious uses? I've offered it to neighbours but it doesnt seem to be a thing amongst my mainly Asian/Afro-Carribean neighbours, but if there's a way of giving it away I'm all for it!

Help me make the most out of my $100 enameled cast iron pot!

I just put down $100 on a new pot that's 4-quart capacity, and oval-shaped. It seems that before I got it, every single recipe called for an enameled cast iron pot for a braised this and a braised that. (Sometimes even bread!) So, please share with me your absolute favorite recipes that have to be made in a cast iron pot. I'm already eyeing a lamb shank recipe with pomegranate molasses.

Help me make the giant egg rolls they sell at food carts in D.C.

When I went to Washington D.C. I discovered food carts/trucks that sold enormous, cabbage-y egg rolls. This was about 10 years ago so they weren't the trendy food trucks you see today, but they were bigger than hot dog carts and drivable. I've attempted googling them over the years I'm missing the secret word. Can anyone find a recipe (and any other info) for these? I must get them in my belly!
