Punch Recipes, Please!

We're throwing a small holiday party for some friends, and we've promised to have at least two kinds of punch -- one with booze, and one without. But we always make the same sorts of punch over and over again, and I'd love some ideas! [more inside]

Japanese Comfort Food

A friend of mine is having to be in the hospital for the next ten days or so. I've promised him I'll make him dinner when he's out, and his request is for Japanese comfort food. I've done some googling and ramen and/or miso soup was already going to be on the menu, but I'm really interested in vetted/actually-from-Japan recipes and I don't have enough knowledge of Japanese cuisine to evaluate them.

Recommend me some sushi roll recipes without raw fish?

Tell me some of your favorite sushi roll recipes that don't contain raw fish - they can be vegetarian or not. Are there any that are a good substitute for that melt-in-your-mouth texture of raw fish (vegetarian or not)? Also if there's any recipes that use (and work well with) cooked fish would be awesome as well!

What's the fancier version of this family recipe?

My grandmother took a microwave cooking class shortly after getting her first one many years ago and this was one of the dishes she learned. It's surprisingly delicious for being so humble and easy to make... is there a fancier dish that it is based on? Recipe inside. [more inside]

No/Low Starch Diet - Food "Substitutes" and Brands? (and how to start?)

A close family member has been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. We are interested in starting a restricted diet (no starch, no dairy, and limiting some other potentially problematic foods) then gradually adding back in dairy/other to see what works for him. I am looking for recommendations for no/low starch food "substitutes" for things like pasta and bread, as well as brands of off-the-shelf-items that fit the bill. If you're on this diet, I would also be curious about how you started. [more inside]

Please save my marriage. With cheese.

We're making a sort of fancified mac and cheese dish that uses a quantity of shredded Gruyere and Gouda. So I shredded the cheese, without actually reading the recipe, and shredded all the cheese we bought. That turns out to be more or less twice the cheese we actually need. Help! [more inside]

How do you organize your digital recipes?

What system do you use to organize your digital recipes from various sources? I often come across recipes from Twitter friends, Buzzfeed (20 ways to use mustard!), YouTube, Tumblr, Metafilter, etc and then I can't find them again. I know I could use a bookmarking system like Pinboard, or something more complex like Evernote, but I wondered what other people do.

What can I make with Sharon fruit pulp?

What can I do with the pulp from four Sharon fruit (a.k.a. kaki or persimmon)? I just bought them but they were already so soft that when I went to cut the tops off, they turned into goop. They taste fine, though. Does anyone have a good, simple dessert recipe to use them in?

Snowflake Soup

I've recently been on a soup kick. However, my meager store of recipes I'm good at cooking has been exhausted. I'm looking for soups that are relatively easy to prepare, are healthy, and are cheap to make. I'm not really interested in cold soups at the moment. No particular restrictions or considerations beyond that.

How to take advantage of hopped gin?

So I've been gifted a bottle of some hopped gin. What would be a great use of it? What to drink with it? I like gin, and I like hops, so I'm hoping something that makes it special.

Help me become a dessert queen.....

I need to make a dessert for a birthday party next week. There will be about 30 people there I think, but desserts are definitely not my forte. My dessert making experience includes: Banana Bread, Chocolate chip cookies, banoffee pie, fruit crumbles and a not great cheesecake. I did not bake ANY cookies as a child and in general, I love cooking but not baking. Also, I will not have use of an oven on the night, so I need to pre-make my dessert and bring it with me.

How to Cook Indian Cuisine

I know how to cook in general, and I know Indian food relatively well in terms of...you know, eating it. But my attempts to cook Indian dishes myself have never turn out. Where can I find clear, dependable recipes for (primarily Northern) Indian staples? (By "staples," I mean ordinary dishes like: palak paneer, bhurtha, aloo paratha, dal. My favorite foods tend to be vegetarian, but I'm not a vegetarian myself, so either veg or non-veg is fine). [more inside]

Meals that I can make ahead of time, freeze, defrost

I will be working for the next two weeks outdoors and for long hours. I would like to try and eat actual, healthy meals or snacks, but it will be hard because I won't really have access to a microwave. Therefore, I will need recipes for things that I can prepare ahead of time, freeze and then I can eat later without having to heat it up. It will have ample time to defrost (it's hot outside!), but I just won't be able to microwave it or anything. Are there any meals out there like this? [more inside]

What are your best recipes with yogurt?

I bought 2 pounds (the smallest size I could find) of plain whole milk yogurt, not realizing that there was an almost-empty container in the fridge. So now I have all this yogurt with a best-by date of August 5. What are your favorite ways to use it? I'm especially interested in vegetarian main dishes (bonus points for using CSA-type veggies), but would also like ways to pair it with chicken or fish.

Help make my birthday dinner HOT

I want to make a large number of small plates of various very spicy and very delicious foods for my birthday next week. Super spicy and super delicious are tied for value in what I'm looking for; I'm not interested in recipes that are all about the heat without being tasty (I'd just pass out grilled peppers if that were the aim). I'm especially interested in finger foods and things that are relatively quick to make, but if it's super delicious and is worth the wait/work, more substantial or utensil-requiring undertakings are also welcome.
