Hack my sangria party!

I am hosting an event tomorrow at a nonprofit and have promised a free sangria bar. I have three types of sangria in mind, but in the interest of saving money, I'm wondering if I can buy fewer ingredients that I can duplicate over two or all three recipes. I'm getting overwhelmed by all the potential combinations, plus a general lack of knowledge on how different liquors will mingle with certain fruit/wine flavors. Help! [more inside]

Mindful snacks for a busy person

I've started seeing a dietitian who has recommended a mindful approach to food and eating as part of my ongoing progress towards health. I'm a busy student and freelancer who is about 50/50 at home or rushing about town to uni, meetings, jobs and shows, but I love cooking: I'd really like to have some mindful snacks that I can have at home or carry in my bag on busy days. What do you recommend, Mefites? [Special snowflakes inside, produced and packed in Australia] [more inside]

Recipes for restaurant "house" hot sauce?

This might be a lost cause but two (very) different restaurants in my town have house hot sauces that are very similar styles which makes me think it may be a thing. Thick - about as thick as Frank's - a little milder than Frank's, not too much vinegar, strong garlic presence, GOOD. I know that's not much to go on... is this a known style? Does it come in gallon tubs from Sysco? Recipes? Thank you in advance!

(How) can I make a french loaf that tastes like it came from a can?

Some combination of nostalgia and longing for comfort food is making me crave Pillsbury French loaf, which I really enjoyed 20 or 30 years ago. Nowadays, though, I live in the UK and in any event I need to stay gluten-free. Can anyone point me to a recipe for something that will taste similar? [more inside]

Easiest Way to Create an Interactive, "Multi-Factor" Game/Exercise?

Programming-challenged foodie here, trying to create a cooking activity for a staff event: From a list, you choose ingredient A as a starting point. Then you choose other ingredients to add to A (D and W, say), and see the result: A+D+W—a dish you can make at home.

How do I deal with my in-laws' rejection of my veganism?

I've been vegetarian for 25 years; mostly vegan for 4-5. I don't claim to be vegan but I don't eat or cook meat (I am our family's homemaker). Almost all of my friends/relatives are not vegetarian or vegan. Most are fairly considerate when sharing a meal. Whenever I share a meal with my in-laws however, there is little consideration of my veganism, and most of the food includes meat. How can I deal with the perceived hostility, and how can I get enough to eat? [more inside]

What easy vegetarian meals can I cook for six, including kids?

RecipeFilter: My husband and I are hosting a family of four (two grown-ups, two kids) for a few days. What easy, quick things can we cook? One of the guests doesn't love cheese (a little is okay, but no mac-n-cheese type meals) and two are vegetarians; the kids are rumored to be easy eaters. We'll be touristing all day so will likely want something we can make fairly quickly before getting the kids in bed. We have a fairly small kitchen and oven, but are decent cooks and bakers. Please share your best recipes!

I'm having 3 friends over for dinner on Wednesday. We're all med students, and two of them will be coming off shifts at the hospital, which will end some undetermined time between 5pm and 8pm.

GI Swan

I'm starting to transition to a low-glycemic index diet, and am trying to come up with some meal plans as well as substitutions for the kind of white flour and white sugar-based cakes and cookies I've always baked. What are your favourite low-glycemic meal and dessert ideas and recipes? It has long been my practice to batch cook just once a week, so make ahead and freeze casserole-type meal ideas are preferred. No recipes containing artificial sweeteners, please, as I don't see them as an improvement on sugar.

What goes best with pickled walnuts?

I was given a jar of pickled walnuts from a Danish friend and I'd like to know what would taste awesome with them. They are not well known here in Australia, and whilst I have trawled the internet for hours, I'm now in a pickle of over-thinking, too many tabs open and my brain in a 'ok THIS is it! No, this one!' I wonder if people from places where they are popular have any traditional or new recipes using pickled walnuts that they'd share with me? [more inside]

Help us not starve!

Short version: The family's primary cook and caregiver is in the hospital for an unknown length of time. It'll be two weeks minimum, could be a lot longer. Then she'll have a long recovery period at home. Her husband and I both theoretically can cook, though he's not very good, and I have medical complications. Between us we have to feed each other and a couple teenagers. Meal planning's fallen to me, but most of the shopping and cooking is on him. We need to survive until his wife's out of the hospital.

Please help me feed my friends

I need a collection of ideas for easily prepared, light meals to serve when friends drop by. Think lunch or small plates to go with a glass of wine. Often friends will drop by within a couple hours notice. They like to eat and I like to be a good host. No firm dietary restrictions for most but these friends are interested in healthy eating, fewer carbs. One vegetarian in the mix. The entire meal does not have to be vegetarian. Thank you!

I do not like foods with creamy mouth-feels. I want to start liking them

I tend to dislike foods that feel creamy: Cream sauces, mayonnaise, ice cream, butter or butter sauces, risottos, quiches, frittatas, milkshakes, casseroles, whipped cream, cheese, eggs that are not baked into a cake, etc. I feel like this is a preference I could actually overcome (unlike, say, my hatred of cilantro). Please provide me with either A) Some understanding of what is pleasant or appreciable about these textures, B) Some tips for coming to enjoy these more or C) Recipes that can ease me into these foods.

What's the secret to those awesome pub-style dill pickle spears?

My favourite thing about ordering a burger at a pub or diner is the dill pickle spear on the side, which seems to be a different style of pickle than the inferior Bicks I get at the store. They're longer, slightly softer, and milder/less acidic, though still definitely dill pickles, not sweet. I would take recommendations for brands or delis in Toronto, but I'm also interested in making my own, so recipes and pointers for this specific style of pickle are also welcome. (Disclaimer: I've never pickled anything ever.)

Low-effort, bulk vegetarian recipes?

I'm looking for vegetarian recipes, without beans, which scale well relative to the level of effort. By which I mean: when you make potato salad, you can double it, but you're going to spend 2x the time peeling potatoes. That's bad. Chili (unfortunately, has beans) scales well: you don't need to individually wash every single bean, you just chuck in 2x the number of beans. Any recommendations for recipes? [more inside]
