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!

Another reason to not buy groceries when you're hungry

I thought I used to like bologna and after making a sandwich with the stuff find that I don't. I need suggestions on ways to use the rest of the bologna that disguises it's texture and fatty/heavyness. Any ideas are welcome. Maybe there's culinary gold hiding in the offal ....

Purchase Sloe Berries

I have a cookbook from England with a sloe gin recipe using fresh sloes, but the plant apparently does not grow in the US (Come on, ConAgra, get busy!). Also, I have learned from a grower in England that starting several years ago, fresh sloes cannot be brought into the US (Is this coincident with the Tea Party?). Any help would be appreciated finding fresh sloes for use in California, and a toast in your name! Thanks!

Chocolate frosting emergency!

I am making a birthday cake to serve to a bunch of kids, and I just did the first stage of the frosting recipe: I melted 125 grams of chocolate with 75 grams of unsalted butter. Then I realized the next step involves raw eggs, which I'd rather not use in a recipe for young children. (Especially because it will probably sit out for a while before serving.) But I hate to waste the chocolate and butter. Without using raw eggs, what can I do to transform this melted butter/chocolate mixture into a delicious chocolate frosting? [more inside]

What is your favorite recipe for making seitan (from scratch)?

I have finally made seitan from scratch (rather than just buying Field Roast), using one of the baked seitan methods. It was GREAT and astoundingly easy! I am now contemplating the many, many flavor profile possibilities that seitan has to offer. Do you have a special spice mix, marinade or preparation method? I'm all ears! (Er, eyes, I guess, since this is a text-based medium.)
