I bought a very large bag of slivered almonds at Costco, and I've come to accept that there's no way I'm going to work my way through it before the nuts go bad. What are your favorite recipes that use sliced almonds? I'm especially interested in things that your average food-wary child would be willing, if not eager, to eat.
Does anyone have a recipe that would reproduce restaurant-style pita bread? [more inside]
Can I marinate beef past the sell-by date? I've bought a piece of chuck pot roast and just made the marinade for Mark Bittman's Vinegar-Marinated Pot Roast recipe. Bittman's recipe suggest marinating the meat for up to 3 days; the date on the package comes due is in two. Will the marinade, made up primarily of wine and vinegar, allow the meat to last past the date (and I have no idea if it's a sell-by or serve-by date - I'm recently eating beef again after about a 13 year hiatus), or should I plan on cooking this tomorrow? Ideally, I'd like to cook this on Thursday, but I don't want to kill my family.
I'm thinking about buying a bread machine. Should I pony up the extra cash for an expensive brand like the Zojirushi? Is anyone happy with a less expensive model? (please say yes) [more inside]
