I'm looking for a recipe for what I think is a combination of vanilla sauce and vanilla pudding. My grandmother used to make it and would serve it poured over pound cake. It had eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla. The pudding/sauce itself tasted a lot like the pudding in Kozy Shack's rice pudding but of a thinner consistency. I've found a lot of vanilla sauce recipes which seem similar except they all call for egg yolks instead of whole eggs. Does anyone know about the sauce/pudding that I'm referring to and do you happen to have a recipe for it?

What is a good cookbook for fresh cooking? I'm looking for a cookbook that takes in-season fruits and veggies and prepares them in a way where their natural flavors come through. I don't want anything heavy like fried foods or so drenched in sugar it will make my teeth hurt. Any ideas? I was looking at How to Pick a Peach by Russ Parsons but wanted to see if there is anything else better out there before I purchased it. Thanks :)

Help me discover this stuffed green chillies recipe. While in India I read about a dish of stuffed green chillies, but never, ever managed to trace it or even to find out it's name. This is what I know about this dish:
*It is Iranian, and can be bought from Iranian coffee shops in Hyderabad.
*The green chilies are cleaned of their seeds and stuffed with a paste that includes cardamom and other spices.
*The stuffed chilies are deep fried in oil.
*The result is sublime.
I would like to know the name of this dish, and if possible a recipe. Thank you chili lovers wherever you are.

I want to make delicious collard greens, but I want them to be healthy and vegetarian (so, no pork fat). I've tried a couple recipes
I found online, but the results have been uninspiring (and the greens didn't strike me as nearly tender enough, even after an hour of boiling). Any advice? Any recipes?

I need a "copycat" recipe for Bojangles
fried chicken, but hours of web searching have proven futile. My southern boyfriend loves the stuff, but I have never had it, so I don't even know where to begin to reproduce it. Has anyone who has eaten it have any recipe ideas? The man said he'd marry me if I could make it, that's how much this chicken means to him.

Looking for the name of a recipe that, near as I can recall, appeared in the early 70’s in an article in the New Yorker. It's a British accompaniment for cold leftover roast pork, and it had a reduplicative name—like “Huffy Duffy” or “Harvey Scarvey”: that sort of name. The recipe itself was quite simple: [more inside]

Two Miso Soup Questions! I've been making a lazy/delicious version of miso soup: miso paste and diluted chicken stock, with tofu or mushrooms or whatever thrown in.

Google gives the wrong recipes!
I am looking for someone who:
1. Has had actual Pan Sobao from Puerto Rico. Pan Sobao from La Facciola is best.
2. Actually MAKES this, preferably in Puerto Rico, and has the right recipe.
