MacGyver this Cauliflower!

Hey folks! I have pretty much a full recipe of Thug Kitchen's Landlocked Ceviche in the fridge right now, minus the cilantro and avocado. Basically, a salad of cauliflower, tomato, red onion and jalepeno doused in lime juice and salt. It's...just ok. Can I shoehorn it into tonight's dinner? [more inside]

Please suggest recipes for car-camping meals that I can prepare before leaving home. I don't want to chop or grate at the campsite, but I don't mind assembling. I am happy to cook over a fire and/or on a camp stove, but no charcoal grill. [more inside]

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 should I make for dinner when I don't know exactly when it'll be?

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. (Most likely between 5 and 6.) What is something good to make when you're not exactly sure when folks will arrive? Note: I don't have a slow cooker or intend to get one, and I don't have a microwave. I do have a stove and an oven. [more inside]

Do you have any staple rice and/or beans recipes?

Please share them with me! I don't care what type of rice and beans are used (includes lentils, garbanzo beans, whatever, as well as red/black/white/pinto beans), everything works. (In fact, I would love any lentil recipes as I have very few of those!) More inside. [more inside]

They don't want to be in Supper Club anymore, but won't say it

My husband and I have been part of a 4-couple Supper Club that we've really valued. (Let's call the 8 members Couple A, Couple B, and Couple C, and us.) From late 2008 on, we'd meet every 6-8 weeks or so at each of the couple's homes on a rotating basis, and would all bring a dish to share according to a dinner theme selected by the hosts. It was very fun, the food was outstanding, and getting the 8 of us together was something we used to look forward to until... [more inside]

Quirky ideas for a works dinner out.

I work in a team of six and we’re looking for something fun to do in December, in tandem with an evening meal out. Budget is under $100 per person. In past years, we’ve done a cooking evening and then eaten the results, and we’ve had a dinner in the dark and tried to guess what we’re eating – all great fun. If you’ve done a dinner with a twist, I’d love to hear about it – I may be able to find something similar here in lil’ ol’ Luxembourg...

I'm looking for real life food mysteries. Where would I find them?

I heard a story on This American Life HERE and it's a story about a sausage maker who inadvertently ruins their product by getting a new building. IN the end, it turned out the problem was they had shortened the route of the final delivery of the sausages and removed what was thought to be the unimportant work of a clerk named Irving. I thought it was fascinating and I want to find other stories like that. Where would I look for them?

(veggie) burgers and other analog recipes

Which standard recipes, with meat as a key ingredient, have clear vegetarian analogs? Examples, to be clear: for every hamburger, there is a veggie burger (eggplant, cauliflower, etc). Chili con carne becomes chili sin carne. For meatloaf there is Neatloaf. What else should I be thinking of? "Buy fake meat" is not heading in the right direction; "google 'vegetarian [meaty food]'" is a realistic suggestion but which foods?
