Beer Me, Cocktail Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me

A friend brought an 18-pack of Miller Lites to our house, and we now have a bunch of excess Miller Lites nestled in our kitchen. I am wondering what kinds of cocktail recipes might make 'em more interesting. Beermosas and Micheladas are my classics for brunch, but what cocktails made with a light bland lager do YOU love? Yes, YOU; I'm asking YOU, dear reader!

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]

soybean recipes for omnivores?

Please recommend recipes that start with whole dried soybeans and don't produce poor imitations of traditionally meat-based recipes. Because if you can eat meat, it's easier and tastier to make those with meat. What else is there? I'm happy to try food that would be unusual by mainstream American standards. [more inside]

Is there a recipe that will use up Halloween candy?

This is a weird question about a fantasy my son has about "cooking" with Halloween candy. For months he's been talking about making "Sweet Stew," a "recipe" he made up in which the Halloween candy is ground up in the food processor and then mixed with peanut butter. Is there any real recipe for something we can make with Halloween candy? [more inside]

Fridge-Clearing Curry Refinements?

I'm making a fridge clearing chicken curry tomorrow (generic type, spices, coconut milk, peanut oil and ghee, carrots and onion and peas and whatever ends of greens or stay tomato we have) and I was wondering what I could do to dress it up? Stuff like grinding and roasting whole spices or adding toasted nuts. Things you could do if you wanted an easy fridge-clearing curry recipe but also had some time to refine and fuss over the little touches. [more inside]

Not Cooking Cute, please

Now that Just Bento is not really updating any longer, what's the best bento blog aimed at adults, not kids, and not at showing off the adorable widgets you manage to buy to make your lunch special, but just a focus on bento staples, fillers and techniques for plotting out lunches in a bento style. A focus on vegetarian is best, but not essential.

Dinner Party for my Book Club? (Difficulty Level: Hong Kong)

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]

Coffee cake, literally - surely it exists?

Is there such a thing as a coffee cake like there is carrot cake, chocolate cake, etc, and maybe has a coffee-flavored frosting to boot? I'm not talking about the "good accompaniment to coffee" dessert, but cake where coffee is the main ingredient/flavor. *note - not looking for chocolate cake where coffee is used to boost flavor/add moisture

Ideas for no-cook meals besides sandwiches?

I'm on a lazy/convenient no-cooking kick and have been eating just sandwiches with deli meats and sliced veggies, and fruit. Assume you could not use the stove/oven nor have any other kitchen equipment (no blenders, microwave, etc, but just a knife, can opener). What are some meal ideas besides sandwiches? I'm not looking for snack ideas like nuts, crackers, etc. but actual meals. I am a meat-eater if that makes a difference and prefer to avoid a whole lot of canned foods because of BPA.

Hit me with your favorite recipe sites!

The title says it all. I've been getting bored with the stuff I've been cooking, and I'm just looking for some inspiration. I like recipes that are Asian or Asian-inspired, because I don't have a lot of time on weekdays and love doing quick, flavorful stir-frys, for example. But I'm open to other kinds of food as well, as long as it doesn't take 2 hours to make. So just wondering if anyone's got some recipe sites they love and regularly use. Thanks!

What should I make with all this fancy cacao?

I have in my cupboard about a half a pound each of totally artisanal cocoa powder and whole roasted cacao beans. I'm looking for suggestions of creative ways to cook with them. Baked desserts are pretty much my wheelhouse, I don't need much in that vein. And ideally, what I make needs to be free of gluten, pork, and shellfish, so things that are either natively so or easy to substitute would be best. Savory or sweet, hot or cold, food or beverage, share with me your favorite recipes or ideas!
